    100 Linpack may have damaged your CPU, that is WAY to much!

    The boards work just fine to sleep, I have a DS4P here and it resumes with DQ6 BIOS and DS4P BIOS, and yes at 4Ghz. I actually use it at 450 FSB and have no issues

    So you may indeed still have some settings off in the BIOS, or in windows even maybe? Please make a new thread and give your full specs and issue again and I will see if I see anything out off the bat that may be causing this.

    I think 10-20 is fine, with 10 being plenty. Of course everyone has their own preferences but no matter who feels what 50-100 is way to many.

    wear is a better description then damage.
    unless you have voltages wrong, or a bad heatsink mount, then linpack wont damage the cpu, just wear it away at bit (provided it stays at reasonable temp throughout the test)

    but yeah, I usually think that 20-30's good, if you find that they are all the same residual norm, then the cpu is fine.

    Ya or..

    Maybe better than that would be degrade, as no matter temps higher stress and or voltages causes electromigration and degradation to the internal structure.

    No matter how you see it though, more than 20 or so is not needed at any speed.

    I've found errors at the 30 to 45 LinX full ram passes mark (32 Bit XP here so 1999 Ram being used) that didn't seem to occur with 5-20 passes so that may or may not mean anything but in general I agree that around 20 seems adequate for most needs with ample Memtest86+/Memtest HCL (the one that runs in windows not dos) and Prime95 testing to round it out for the Memory/CPU and Furmark to stress your VPU seems good as well.

    It's by no means common from the feed back here but Tyreman had the same with his Vista install.

    Hmm, thanks Psycho101!

    I will let Colin know that this has happened to a few people now and see if they are aware of the issue.

    The board using F10i no longer contains its vendor info, as can be seen in this screenshot:



    I'm willing to bet that re-activation is due to the fact that one minute Windows thought it was installed on a EP45-UD3P, and the next it was told it was running on a "____________" ie no name or description what so ever.

    Looks like a ****-up to me...

    I'm also aware that some others haven't had this issue. Bear in mind that my board is Rev 1.0. Also even if some 1.0 owners do have their vendor info in tact, it still doesn't let the BIOS off the hook. After all for example, not all Intl X25M G2's were killed by the TRIM FW update, but Intel still removed the FW, stating it to be the cause. IMO, if the Vendor info was there under the previous BIOS and not this one, the "blame" lies squarely with the newer BIOS.
