    Re: copper pennies

    Installed the "newer" cpu, updated bios with version NF3LD623, using xp-120 alum HS, now I not using a penny or a heat spreader, but generous amount of AS-5. Able to post after some difficulty (suspecting faulty stock sata cables, comp wanted to boot in raid mode, i dont have that setup or turned on). Now for this cpu, multiplier is 13X 200 (2600), vcore 1.35V, should I leave the vcore on auto or manually set it? I'm not interested in overclocking, I don't have the time for it (anymore), because of the lidless cpu will manually setting the vcore cause me any problems?

    here is a copy from cpuid:

    Re: copper pennies

    If your not overclocking why would you mess with the votlages?

    Ps the cpu is not in danger, mine has been running that way for years.

    He's good at it too!

    Almost had to call you up for one UB on my new quad rig but turned out it was bios support of the cpu not the flash (lucky me)
