Luckily there have been settings for protections against overheating for years. It is still a great program with tons of features, at any given time. This should be capable to keep the processor at negative Celsius, and thus offer some more than plenty overclocking potential. We put this aside, since we have some other, sturdier cooling methods to try. We still have one final check to perform, namely maximal FSB.

Mar 30, at 9: The CPU temperature was the limiting factor in our tests using air cooling.

Usually when you overclock using just air cooling you have access to big tower heatpipe monsters like the Tuniq Tower and the Noctua NH-U12, preferably equipped with abiy 38mm mm Delta blowing the wall paper of the walls. Abit has worked diligently at addressing the issues we found in testing and those of users who have reported additional issues.
Here we can see for how long the computer has been turned on, for how long the computer has been provided with current but being turned off at the same time, and also the voltages just like they are set in BIOS, except for VDIMM that stubbornly shows 0. Our entire series of benchmarks passed without any problems.
Hopefully, this board goes all the way to MHz, but that remains to be seen until the overclocking tests. From here on we tried to skip ahead MHz to about 4. If we consider the major steps, for example from Optimized Defaults to 3.
We needed to raise the voltage a little for the processor to cooperate, but with 1. We have been testing several beta BIOS releases since our initial review and have come to some interesting conclusions about this board and abit. The “EIST adjusting” function now works as intended.

Lowest available setting is 1. Excluding the stock frequencies of course, these are just for reference, but they really show how much you have to gain from overclocking.
But then again, surely noone would buy a card meant mainly for overclocking, and put in their HTPC? Unfortunately I don’t know what you need to check if the Scythe will fit. In addition to the voltages themselves, the board offers great intervals between different voltages, that lets us set the voltage with precision rarely seen before.

Above you can see the three main tabs that are in the main menu; temperature monitoring, voltages and fan speeds. The best thing about this program is clearly not the looks, but the functionality.
Nothing that causes you headache, but still a bit sad, since it would be great to have everything gathered at one place. The three profiles called Turbo, Normal and Quiet are preconfigured, but as a user, you can etherhet with User in addition to the sthernet profile.
ABIT AB9 QuadGT: Overclocking
Maybe you could miss an additional Ethernet port, or even an extra SATA port if you want to win those wars. The voltages required for everything but PCMark to pass are shown below. TechBubbel Podcast — Generous nevertheless, as this might come in abbit with other cooling than the standard one.
Probably not values that make nuclear plants go Chernobyl, but up to 1. After one session of tests at 4. Jul 13, Posts: Mar 30, at 2: It manages all this while generating excellent performance numbers.
We intend to sort out exactly how good this card is, using once again overclocking. It is still a great program with tons of ah9, at any given time. Below the PCI-Express frequency setting we have a very interesting section in form of the voltage adjustments, Voltages Control. No problems, just create a profile that underclocks the computer and lowers the voltage provided to the fans and associate it to a program that you use to watch movies.
