  1. Hey. Well it's actually very straightforward. Put all the settings back to stock. First go and find the max for your cpu. Up the cpu speed and leave the vcore at default and see how far it goes on default volts. At the point you reach the top, slightly increase your cpu volts and see how high you can get with that. Repeat it this way till you find out what the max for your cpu is. After having found the max cpu speed, set it back to stock and do exactly the same for the ram. After having found the max for the ram, you're ready to combine the settings. Could be that you cannot set the max mem and the max cpu speed at once, but go in steps like before and see at what point you loose stability. In this way you'll find a roof eventually. It takes some time to perform but you'll be lucky you did it after your system performs at its max. And keep re-reading that manual. It took me a couple of times to understand what was meant in there. Just open the bios and have that manual in printed version ready at hand so you can see of which thing in the bios is spoken of. Good luck and let us know.
  2. The embedded text is simpel. I just copied and pasted the text in your textfile into this window. About the vddr, that's kinda strange, but it also could be a good thing :-) This means that your board overvolts the vddr, but you should pay attention no to overvolt your ram.
  3. @ charley: okay, you're in my list now.
  4. Okay, but do you run ddr600 in sync or with a divider? And with how much vddr?
  5. Okay i will try that. Thanks a lot for the info. I'll let you know the outcome of it. Edit: Okay. I've set the mal to 9, the dram drive strength to level 7, trc to 7, trfc to 14, odd divisor correct to enable, set dynamic counter to enable, and set the read preamble to 7 (rp 5 wasn't working at all). I'm in windows, so let's see how this will work out. Thanks man. If there are any other things i can change to improve fsb speed or anything at all, they're welcome.
  6. Hmmz could be indeed, not sure though. But you can sure try those timings. Also read my thread on my system evaluation (how's my system doing). I stated all my ram timings in there and got recommendations from Kittfitt. Be my guest....
  7. Hihi. Okay. You're prolly in the same state i was in a couple of weeks ago. It's best to start of with reading the defenitive DFI NF4 overclocking guide. In there is almost everything you need to know and how to maximize your system to its limits. Please, be my guest, and read that manual:)
  8. NO no no no stop. I had exactly the same problem with my gskill set. It is rated at ddr 4400 at 2,5-3-3-7 but i never got stable with that and it made the system corrupt every time. Bad rams? Certainly not! Those stock settings were causing my cpu ondye memcontroller way too much stress. That caused all the problems. And imho it is also the problem of the topic starter. Having said this, try run your ram with looser timings. 3-4-4-8 @2,8v did the trick for me. I now can run my ram @ FSB 295 in synch 1:1. About the 2t with a 2x1gb set. I thought that was some sort of a general rule of thumb. Some of us are very lucky with their 2gb set on 1t. It all depends on how strong your cpu ondye memcontroller is. If it wants to work with 1t it's great, but it mostly won't do it. Hence the 2t setting for a 2x1gb set.
  9. Do those rams have the tccd chips on it? If that's the case try setting timings 3-4-4-8. This will cause lesser stress to your cpu ondye memory controller.
  10. Okay, great. Thanks for your explanation. I'll try it. I'm still at work.....till 22:00. Bommer. But hell, I almost got the fastest internet connection from europe over here, so there are dvd images waiting for me te be downloaded. I'll fill my time, haha. Thanks again.
  11. Okay for 2GB you need to run your ram at 2T. Try timings 3-4-4-8 at 2,8v. Max async latency to 9, dram data drive strength to 7, 123 errata to auto, tref to 41xx or auto, trc to 7, trfc 14, read preamble to 7 and when your ram is set to normal, you can set dynamic counter to enable. Those settings were recommended to me, maybe they will work for you also.
  12. Aah okay. Indeed. My pc seems reasonable stable but sometimes it suddenly reboots. Maybe that's indeed because of the high trc? I'll try your settings to see if that cures it. And what is better? Setting the ram to fast and disable dynamic counter or setting the ram to normal and enable dynamic counter? Or is it the same?
  13. Hmmz, indeed strange. Try to check if there's any dust in fatal places, like the pci-e contacts (try to wipe it with a soft fabric) and also check if there's any dust in the pci-e slot itself and most important, in the cooling of the card. Usually it's something like that. What was your former mobo?
  14. Well, I guess the best thing you can do is to start with the Tmod's DFI Bios cd, which includes almost all bioses for your board. From there, like it's said before, it's really trial and error. I know, it takes some time but in the end you'll be happy you took the time for it, i'll promiss you that :cool:
  15. Okay i'll try that. But for the learning process, what are the benefits of your recommended settings?
  16. Do you know what chips are on your gskill? Are they TCCD? For my Gskill TCCD's i use the following timings (also to get the stress from my memcontroller). My timings are behind yours okay? DRAM Configuration Settings: DRAM Frequency Set............................ - 140=RAM/FSB:07/10 Command Per Clock (CPC)....................... - Auto / enabled CAS Latency Control (Tcl)..................... - 2 Bus Clocks / 3 RAS# to CAS# delay (Trcd)..................... - 3 Bus Clocks /4 Min RAS# active time (Tras)................... - 6 Bus Clocks / 8 Row precharge time (Trp)...................... - 3 Bus Clocks / 4 Row Cycle time (Trc).......................... - 8 Bus Clocks /13 Row refresh cyc time (Trfc)................... - Auto / 16 Row to Row delay (Trrd)....................... - 02 Bus Clocks /3 Write recovery time (Twr)..................... - 02 Bus Clocks /3 Write to Read delay (Twtr).................... - 02 Bus Clocks /2 Read to Write delay (Trwt).................... - 03 Bus Clocks /3 Refresh Period (Tref)......................... - 3120 Cycles / try 41xx or auto Write CAS Latency (Twcl)...................... - Auto DRAM Bank Interleave.......................... - Enabled DQS Skew Control.............................. - Auto DQS Skew Value................................ - 0 DRAM Drive Strength........................... - Auto / level 7 DRAM Data Drive Strength...................... - Auto / level 2 Max Async Latency............................. - Auto / 9 DRAM Response Time............................ - Normal Read Preamble Time............................ - Auto / 6.5 or 7 IdleCycle Limit............................... - 256 Cycles / 128 Dynamic Counter............................... - Disable / disabled R/W Queue Bypass.............................. - 16 x / 16x Bypass Max.................................... - 07 x /5x 32 Byte Granularity........................... - Disable(4 Bursts) [/code]
  17. Okay, keep us posted with your findings.....
  18. Good advice. Those looser timings give your cpu ondye memcontroller lesser stress then with those tighter timings you had before. Hence the errors in memtest. But i'll take the advice for my own system too, because we have the same ram :-)
  19. Okay, thanks. For the learning process, what is the advantage of setting ds to 7 and odd divisor correct to enabled? By the way. I read in the forums that setting 123 errata to auto enables the fault protection on dual core cpu's. Can it be that this setting give a bit more stability?
  20. I know, but what i was fishing after was more something like 'regarding your sig, try this and that etc. But i know i have to find them myself. Just looking for guidelines from the pro's, that's all :-)
  21. Hey All, Everyone had a nice Christmas? I did... And for later this day, I'd like to say to all of you, I wish all of you a very happy New Year, with all the love, luck and heavy overclocking goals you can have. Well, having said that I'd like to focus on my system. It's taken me a long time to get to this point. What I'd like to know is if the settings I configured are any good or are there any tips/tricks/recommendations that you can give me to try to optimize it a lil. My current settings are in my sig and its running 'kinda stable'. My mem settings are as following: Dram Frequency Set 200mhz Command Per Clock Enable Cas Latency Control 3 tRCD 4 tRAS 8 (based on TRAS=CAS+TRCD+2, but I put it to 11 to be sure), right now it's back to 8. tRP 4 tRC 14 (based on TRC=TRAS+TRP) tRFC 16 (bases on TRC + 2 or 3 or 4) tRRD 3 tWR 3 tWTR 2 tRTW 3 (between 2-4) tREF=3072 (3.9us=200mhz, not sure what this one should be set to) Odd divisor correct disabled Dram Bank Interleave enabled DQS Skew Control Auto DQS Skew Value 0 Dram Drive Strength Level 8 Dram Data Drive Strength Level 2 Max. Async Latency 8ns Read Preamble Time 6ns Idle Cycle Limit 64 cycles Dynamic Counter disabled R/W Queue Bypass 16x Bypass Max 5x 32 Byte Granulation disabled. FSB 295mhz (in 1:1 sync with mem, no divider used). LDT/FSB Frequency ratio 3x CPU/FSB Frequency ratio 9x CPU startup vid 1,400v CPU Vid control 1,400v CPU Special vid control +109% (comes to 1,52-1,54v) LDT Volt. control 1,40v Chipset volt. control 1,65v Dram volt. control 2,87v I'm using merlin's 04-11-2006 bios. I'm very curious about the improvements you guys have for me. Any tips, tricks etc. are welcome. Temps are as in my sig. Thanks in advance. Alex PS! By the way, i think the forum looks great the way it does right now. Nice colours and cool picture headers. Great work admins! PPS! If totally forgot to mention the most important fact! It was due to the help of my fellow dfi-street members that i got upto this point with my settings. You're all super!
  22. Hmmmz, what a pitty. My new thread didn't bring me the help/tips I was hoping for......Why is that?
  23. well i've learned that 3-4-4-8 puts lesser strain on the memcontroller of the cpu, and enables you to set the cpu clock higher with lesser volts. Most of the times when you set the cas latency to 2,5 you need more cpu volts to keep the same overclock, am i right? I can't remember why i set the tras to 11 instead of 8, but i guess it was because of stability issues. And because of the formula in the defenitive a64 overclocking guide (chapter where memtimings are described. In there it states that tras is best at cas + trcd + 2. That makes 9 in my case). Hmmz. Well i think it was due to stability problems with tras at 8 or 9. But i can always try 8 or 9 again of course :-) Okay, let me put tras back to 8 then. I'll run 10 passes of memtest test 5 first beforce coming back okay? ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Edit: Okay TRAS is back on 8. Ran 10 passes of memtest test 5 without errors.
  24. Hi all, Well, I don't want to be lazy or rude or so but hopefully everyone can help who knows more about the NF4 platform than I do. My current settings are in my sig. Hopefully you guys can give my system a bit of an evaluation. My mem settings are as following: Dram Frequency Set 200mhz Command Per Clock Enable Cas Latency Control 3 tRCD 4 tRAS 8 (based on TRAS=CAS+TRCD+2, but I put it to 11 to be sure), right now it's back to 8. tRP 4 tRC 14 (based on TRC=TRAS+TRP) tRFC 16 (bases on TRC + 2 or 3 or 4) tRRD 3 tWR 3 tWTR 2 tRTW 3 (between 2-4) tREF=3072 (3.9us=200mhz, not sure what this one should be set to) Odd divisor correct disabled Dram Bank Interleave enabled DQS Skew Control Auto DQS Skew Value 0 Dram Drive Strength Level 8 Dram Data Drive Strength Level 2 Max.
