    Undervolting wont hurt performance, it just decreases the amount of power going to the cpu. However, from what I can tell the cpu is still running at the same Core VID's as before and according to what is specified in the AMD power spec sheet.

    I dont know how you guys are getting lower temps but from what I can see there is no change in the temps or the fan behavior.

    I agree with miner in that there doesn't seem to be any improvement in temperatures - actually mine is hotter today but that's just the weather...

    However, the fan behaviour has definitely changed for me with BIOS setting "fan always on" disabled - there is a noticeable absence of 'roar' and no other noise apart from the hard drive when the temperature dips below about 60 degrees C.

    Hmm..you are right. The fan now seems to turn on around 60 - 65C and turns off at 60C previously it used to run around 50 - 55C. No change in fan behavior if it is set to run always however.

    I have the ZM-80 2.1ghz CPU. There is definitely a drop in temps. I'd say the average is 4 Deg C. I'm going to run wprime to see if top end is reduced also. But for regular tasks, the drop is 4 Deg c avg.

    guys i dont know if its just the rm-70 but the new bios really does lower temperature readings. check out my everest temps. core 1 and 2 are at 39c after 15 minute usage. never seen it that low , usally drops to 45c as the lowest. check out the screenshot.

    if you guys ever flash a overclock friendly desktop motherboard, youd know they recommended loading the bios default setting after a flash. which is what i did.

    Interesting... miner has the ZM-86 and I have the ZM-82, both of which are rated with a TDP of 35W. While 2.0 and there148, who have noticed drops in cpu temperature, have cpus with TDPs of 31-32W.

    ZM-84 here, My temps are around 39~43 idle, full load/games kicks it to about 70ish.

    I have an RM-70 and I don't know if its just me but it seems to be running much better. Do you know if this will allow the tx to run with different linux distributions like Ubuntu now more problem free? Also, this might have just gotten rid of that horrid hard drive click, but its to soon to tell. :D
