  1. 280MHz!? :eek: Damn Yes, please post you're settings because whatever I do, my sticks will not run higher than 255MHz, even when i'm running one on one, without a divider. I'm at the point, that I'm pulling the hair out of my skull of frustration :sad:
  2. I was wondering if it were possible someone could mod the 28/7 bios so that the DRAM Response Time option (normal, fast and fastest) is available. In the current CFX3200-DR biosses it's missing. It's an option that always was present back on the DFI nF4 platform. Reason I'm asking, is that with my Crucial Ballistix i have serious trouble to get it over the 255MHz, even on 3-4-4-8 timings I had the same problem on my DFI nF4 Ultra-D, but after changing DRAM Response time from Fast (default) to Normal I was able to run 275MHz. So this option seems to have a lot of influence on stability when running with Crucial Ballistix PC4000 (Micron 5B -F chips). However, the option is not available on the CFX3200-DR
  3. I'm kind of having trouble with running dividers as well now I have an Opteron 165. Those timings I posted earlier were with my old X2 4600+ running 1:1 at 11x260HTT I got my Opteron 165 last week and it does 3000Mhz with 1.44v Right now I'm running with 150 (3:4) divider at 9x333HTT, my Crucials are running at 250MHz 3-3-3-8-1T This is all Memtest and Prime stable, so far so good The problems arise when going over the 255MHz on the ram (with or without a divider). I can't seem to get 260-266MHz stable One other thing I noticed, is that my bandwidth is rather low when running the sticks at 250MHz 3-3-3-8-1T Sandra reports 6400MB/s in the buffered test, in comparison with 6700-6800MB/s I find in reviews of other Micron 5B- F based 2GB kits Here is as you requested my stable settings : [B]Genie BIOS Settings:[/B] [COLOR=red] FSB Bus Frequency............................. - 333 LDT/FSB Frequency Ratio....................... - 4 CPU/FSB Frequency Ratio....................... - 9 RD580 HT PLL Speed............................ - High HT Bus MMOS Drive Strength.................... - 01 HT Bus PMOS Drive Strength.................... - 04 HT Bus Receiever Impedance.................... - 10 CPU HT Bus Drive Strength..................... - Strong CPU VID Control............................... - 1.475v (gives 1.44 in WinXP) CPU VID Special Control....................... - auto DRAM Voltage Control.......................... - 2.74v SB PCIE Voltage............................... - 1.84v NB Analog Voltage............................. - 1.34v LDT Bus Voltage............................... - 1.34v NB Core Voltage............................... - 1.34v [/COLOR] [B]DRAM Configuration Settings:[/B] [COLOR=red] DRAM Frequency Set............................ - 150=RAM/FSB:03/04 Command Per Clock (CPC)....................... - Enabled CAS Latency Control (Tcl)..................... - 3 RAS# to CAS# delay (Trcd)..................... - 3 Min RAS# active time (Tras)................... - 8 Row precharge time (Trp)...................... - 3 Row Cycle time (Trc).......................... - 7 Row refresh cyc time (Trfc)................... - 14 Row to Row delay (Trrd)....................... - 2 Write recovery time (Twr)..................... - 2 Write to Read delay (Twtr).................... - 1 Read to Write delay (Trwt).................... - 2 Refresh Period (Tref)......................... - 3072 Cycles DRAM Bank Interleave.......................... - Enabled Errata 94 Enhancement......................... - Disable Errata 123 Enhancement........................ - auto Odd Divisor Correct........................... - Disable DQS Skew Control.............................. - Off DQS Skew Value................................ - 0 DRAM Drive Strength........................... - level 5 (always weak) DRAM Data Drive Strength...................... - Level 2 (Reduce 30%) DIMM 1/3 Clock Timing Skew.................... - auto DIMM 2/4 Clock Timing Skew.................... - 450 delay Max Async Latency............................. - 8 Read Preamble Time............................ - 6 IdleCycle Limit............................... - 16 Cycles Dynamic Counter............................... - Disable R/W Queue Bypass.............................. - 16 x Bypass Max.................................... - 07 x Burst Length.................................. - Disable (4 Bursts) [/COLOR]
  4. No, they are not. Crucial is playing on safe so it stopped using Micron 5b-D and is now using Micron 5b-F, which are more stable but can't take as much. For running Micron 5b-F 275MHz @ 3-3-3-7-1T you'll need 2.80-2.85v in comparison to 2.7v for the Micron 5b-D There are some reports of failing TD1. I think that's because although it's the new revison of the PCB, those sticks still use Micron 5b-D chips and not the new Micron 5b-F chips. I myself bought two TD sticks last year in March. Around the beginning of december they finally started to give me problems. I did a RMA and am now running with TF2Y, which has a new revision of the PCB and has Micron 5b-F chips. Running 260MHz @ 3-3-3-7-1T with 2.78v Drive Strength 5 and data Strength 2 (it has been hell to work out the correct settings in my CFX3200-DR to get it stable)
  5. To me it seems that messing with Pmos, Nmos and HTTBus Reciever only effects the stability of the CPU and the LDT speed, and has really no effect on the Uli errors. I've been running 15-15-25 but those settings are not stable when Priming at 11x257HTT @ 1.488v and 5x257 LDT I've read on Xtreme that keeping Pmos higher than Nmos can help a lot when running a high HTT en high CPU clcok. It was suggested that 4-1-10 is a good setting when running high HTT with TCCD based sticks. It works for me, but only if do 4x257LDT, 5x is not possible (then again, I don't have TCCD in my system but Micron 5B-F) At the moment I'm doing 11x257HTT @ 1.488v and 5x257LDT with 5-5-10 and it works like a charm I'm still searching for a good guide (or any info for that matter) that explains how Pmos, Nmos and HTTBus Reciever have to be adjusted/are related to different CPU and Ram combo's
  6. Just wanted to let you people know that it IS possible run with both a Raid controller add-on card and with the ULi (non-raid) SATA ports enabled with bios 28/7 To work around the m5288 freezing problem with two SATA2 disks, I decided to buy a PCIe 1x Raid SATA2 card for 40 euro's to connect my two SATA2 Seagate Barracuda's in Raid0. But I've also got an Samsung SATA burner, which is connected to port 4 of the Uli controller. I disabled the Raid function of the Uli in the bios and changed the SATA-mode to "AHCI". During boot, the sub-bios of my add-on Raid card is loaded, but NOT the Uli sub-bios, so I don't get the "Option ROM can not invoke error" Tried it again, but now with the SATA-burner connected to the Silicon Image controller. But that didn't work, even when you're not using the Raid function of this controller and the Silicon Image chip is set to non-raid mode, the sub-bios is still loaded, and you'll end up with the invoke error. I ended up with the following: Raid Add-on card + Uli non-raid AHCI mode -> Works Raid Add-on card + Uli non-raid PATA mode -> Works Raid Add-on card + Silicon Image non-raid mode -> Invoke error Raid Add-on card + Uli Raid enabled -> Invoke error Silicon Image non-raid mode + Uli non-raid AHCI mode -> Works Silicon Image Raid enabled + Uli non-raid PATA mode -> Works Silicon Image non-raid mode + Uli Raid enabled -> Invoke error Silicon Image Raid enabled + Uli Raid enabled -> Invoke error I noticed one other thing, even with the Uli SATA functions totally disabled in the bios, my SATA is still recognised during boot and works fine in Windows
  7. Mailed DFI tech support last friday about the option ROM can not be invoke message this what is wrote and what i got back: They replied as follows: Very strange, because in beta Bios 5/19 the issue was resolved, only to come back in the later bios releases. I find it very strange to say the least that they not willing to resolve the issue again. Because what does the release notes say with this bios: Major Reasons of Change: 1. Fixed Silicon image ( SATA) + Uli (Raid ) combination. 2. Turn on ULI and silicon image raid at same time but Silicon image just support Raid5 only at the combination .
  8. Dear Rgone thanx for sharing the info, but what about the "Option ROM can not invoke" error? In the latest beta bios (28/7) it's still not possible to run the Silicon chip together with the Uli chip enabled. When will that issue be resolved? I mean, the only thing that the error is telling you, is that there's not enough room in the bios to load both chip biosses, surely that can be resolved
  9. Yeah, I was wonbering about that myself. In the latest beta (28/7) there's still the Option ROM can not invoke issue. When will that be resolved???Now I'm not using the Sil right now, but to avoid conflicts in the futute with SATA2 drives I was planning to buy a PCIe 1x Raid0 Controller add-on card. It's my understanding that you also cannot run with the Uli raid bios enabled and with an Add-on card Raid bios at the same time, it produces the same error as with Uli + Sil. I mean, the only thing that the error is telling you, is that there's not enough room in the bios to load both chip biosses, surely that can be resolved
  10. Yes, I tried this. I did a repair install, and before installed Windows from CD, I disabled Marvell Lan port 2, put my X1900XT in PCIe 16x #1 as usual and set the Uli chip in Raid0 mode. During setup I pressed F5, and choose "ACPI Multi Processor HAL" This resulted in Uli Raid on IRQ 19 and Marvell Lan port 1 on IRQ 18
  11. I thinks it's very simple. Before you do a install of Windows (Clean or Repair), first disable Marvell LAN port 2 in the bios and have the Uli Raid function enabled. Put you're graphic card in PCIe 16x slot one (upper slot). Now, let Windows install and you'll end up with The Marvell LAN port 1 on IRQ 18 and Uli Raid Controller on IRQ 19. Btw, where can I change the PCIe bus speed, I can't seem to find it anywhere? I'm using bios 28/7
  12. You were right! In the Uli Raid Bios config, my Samsung SATA burner is recognized and works perfectly. I'm running the following combo: Bios 28/7 + Beta 6.2.2.1. Uli Raid0 (Stripe 64K) 2x 120Gb SATA1 Maxtor Silicon Image Disabled No freezes at all
  13. @ RGone and Happy_Games Do you guys know when the "Rom option can not be invoked" issue wil be fixed in the 28/7 bios? With that bios you still can't run the Sil and the Uli controllers at the same time, but is seems to be the best bios to avoid the Uli errors.
  14. Okay thanx! I'll see if it's recognised in the Uli Raid Bios On my Ultra-D it worked flawlessly. I'm looking at you're sig, and noticed that you use bios 28/7 and have both the Sil and the Uli chips enabled. So you must be getting the "Invoke errors". I was wondering, are there any consequences due to this error once Windows is loaded or can you just ignore it?
  15. I was wondering, is it possible to attach an SATA DVD-burner to SATA-1 of the Uli Chip while at the same using the Raid0 function of this chip on SATA-3 and SATA-4. I was planning to connect my SATA burner to the Sil chip, but i'm running bios 7/28 and when both chips (Uli and Sil) are enabled, I get the "option ROM can not invoke" error.
  16. I just bought this motherboard last weekend, also for 69 Euro's. Comming week most webshops in Holland will drop their prices on the CFX3200. As far as the Uli SB is concerned. Just disable the Sata and Raid control functions and you're fine. If you really want to use SATA2, then you're better of buying an PCIe 1x controller card. Overall performance of the Uli Sb isn't that bad at all, it just has issues with SATA2 and Raid. I don't know if you are familair with Tweakers.net and Gathering Of Tweakers.net , but in this Subforum there a dutch thread concerning the CFX3200. http://gathering.tweakers.net/forum/list_messages/1176491/ People are reporting in the Dutch thread that the Uli SB has no issues when using SATA1 (in Raid or not) with the new AB0 revision. Even some are reporting that SATA2 is also possible with no problems at all with this latest revision.
  17. @ jhyunl Did you play with Max Async Latency, Read Preamble , Drive/Data Strength Settings and DRAM response time? Because those need to be changed when you get past 250MHz. It can really make a big difference in getting no errors at all or getting ten-thousends of them. Leaving them on auto will generate errors in Mem Test for sure My settings @ 237MHz (2.5-2-2-6-1T) vdimm 2.57v Max Async 7 Read preamble 5.5 Drive Strength 5 Data Strength 2 DRAM response time fast My settings @ 273Mhz (3-3-3-8-1T) vdimm 2.71v Max Async 9 Read preamble 6 Drive Strength 6 Datsa Strength 2 Data response time normal I'v been using these settings since January this year when I first got my two sticks of 16TD's and there still going strong, haven't had any problems so far. (I run Mem Test every other week)
  18. What worked for me was the following: make sure DRAM RESPONSE TIME is to Normal when you run those sticks at 240Hz and up. Fast and Fastest are to much for these sticks
  19. Did you stop to think about the fact that this card is PCI based and operates at 33/66Mhz? A PCI busspeed of 66MHz gives you 266MB/sec burst data transfer rate. That's just enough for two SATA2 disks in Raid0 However..... the pci slots on you DFI mobo only operate at 33MHz. A PCI busspeed of 33MHz gives you only 133MB/sec burst data transfer rate. PCI 66Mhz is NOT supported on your motherboard So using two SATA2 3.0Gb disks with this combo is useless. You'd be better off looking for an PCIe x1 controller card. A PCIe 1x busspeed gives you a 312MB/sec burst data transfer rate.

  20. Another thing you might consider is this: The DFI Expert has issues with TCCD based memory modules, if you have TCCD based modules I would leave the Expert alone and go for an Ultra-D (SLI/DR) or Venus board. On the other hand, if it's memory with UTT or BH5/BH6 chips you could go for the Expert. Hope this helps Btw, If I were you I'd use 2 sticks of 1024Mb and not 4x512Mb. With two sticks of 1024MB, changes are a lot higher you reach running them at 1T I'm following a topic on Xtreme forums where a well known user, Windwithme, is testing the board. He succesfully ran his two sticks of 1024MB at 1T (doing 620DDR ) He has yet to succeed in running 4x512 at 1T. At the moment it's still 2T

    Problems with G-Skill GBLA PC4800

    Perhaps you try to increase vdimm to 2.8v (gives 2.9v in bios, but MBM5 shows 2.84- 2,87v under load in windows) I use OCZ P4800 Platinum Elite Edition which does 300MHz (600DDR) @ 2.5-4-4-8 and is rated 2.8v at those speeds. (heck , it can even do 310Mhz at those settings) First I could not do 320HTT (5:6) 255Mhz with your settings described above, PiFast and Prime kept on failing and MemTest gave me around 30 errors per pass in test 8. This was with 2.7v for the dimms After increasing the vdimm to 2.8v all the errors disapeared and Pifast and Prime were stable. Very strange indeed , but it seems to me that this board needs anough juice on your dimms to do a stable high HTT , evenwhen your ram is running slower with a divider (as is my case) I tested again running with 2.7v and the errors reappeared in addition you can try these settings: Max Async latency 10ns Read Preamble 8ns Dynamic Idle cycle counter 256

    thing is, that your NF4 board is far more stable and compatible than this nF3 mobo. The nF3 Ultra-D can be very quirky

    Problems with G-Skill GBLA PC4800

    I'm running with an Opteron 146 and 2 sticks of 512MB OCZ PC4800 Platinum Elite Edition (TCCD) Seems to me that the most influential settings for running a high HTT and 2 sticks of 512MB are the 1T/2T settings and Read Preamble and Max Async latency. For Opterons with high HTT i set Read Preamble to 7ns and Max Async to 9ns, and offcourse 2T for a HTT of 260 and above. Also i set vdimm to 2.8v (gives 2.9v) My sticks are rated 2.8v for 300MHz 2.5-4-4-8 These are my setting for 10x300 @ 2T bios C19 Orange slots vchipset 2.8 vdimm 2.8v Max Memclock 200MHz 1T/2T Memory Timing 2T Tcl 2.5 Trcd 4 Tras 8 Trp 4 Twr 2 Trrd 2 Trfc 16 Trc 12 Twtr 2 Trwt 4 Tref auto Twcl 1 Max Async latency 8ns Read Preamble 6ns Dynamic Idle cycle counter 64 DDR output driving weak DDR DQ Drive strength 50% reduction Bank Interleave enabled 2-way These are my setting for 9x325 @ 1T bios C19 Orange slots vchipset 2.8 vdimm 2.8v Max Memclock 166MHz using 6:5 divider 1T/2T Memory Timing 2T Tcl 2.5 Trcd 3 Tras 7 Trp 3 Twr 2 Trrd 2 Trfc 16 Trc 12 Twtr 2 Trwt 4 Tref auto Twcl 1 Max Async latency 9ns Read Preamble 7ns Dynamic Idle cycle counter 128 DDR output driving weak DDR DQ Drive strength 50% reduction Bank Interleave enabled 2-way
