If you run the processor stock that and a memory change is all that is needed. SEt the memory divider to the proper speeds to match your ram.
This is done after loading defaults again.
If you are going to try and performance tune your system then you will have to go into advanced options and shut off your c states (C1E). Shut off cool and quiet.
Under AI tweaker disable Spread Spectrum and PCI Spectrum (if that board has the PCI option).
Performance tuning a system is an art an it requires a lot of patience, no two processors are alike. In 10 mhz increments raise your multiplier intil your system becomes unstable at stock settings. Then when the system becomes unstable tweak voltages slowly in increments. Set your HT to I think 1800 on that board. NB voltage 1.3. (Only if Perfromance tuning,)
Nice can of worms to open. How about we get through the simple voltage setting first, and maybe get a cooler on there that doesn't have the chip hitting 58 degrees?
"In 10 mhz increments raise your multiplier"? Ok....so how many X equals a MHz on a locked chip? Should he try 26.5X first (raising it ten)?
"NB Voltage 1.3"? ::coughbaranskicough:: Ouch. Not sure an Athlon/880V combo is really going to need that kind of overvolt.

i ran prime95 for more than 4 hours...no errors and warnings but i'm concern about my voltage...i got alarms from PC PROBE II that my voltages became abnormal for a specific amount of time during the test. this isn't normal right?
