  1. It does matter because if you overclock the memory say to 250Mhz, 3-3-3-8 may work perfectly but 2.5-3-3-8 may not. As when you overclock you must increase the timings to comphensate. At 200Mhz does 3-3-3-8 work?
  2. I missed that bit Have you tried memtest or prime95?
  3. Hello, Your memory is a problem with this board. http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=7559 I have not gone through the long post but I think you should. Is this your memory? http://www.ocztechnology.com/products/memo...inum_revision_2
  4. Hello, Are you using 200Mhz when trying this or 266Mhz? Does everything on AUTO +MEM set to 200Mhz(400DDR) 2.5-2-2-5 work?
  5. Hello, 1Mhz is a small change, as you are overclocking did you change the LDT/FSB ratio? This is the hypertransport setting, by default it should be set to 1000Mhz, 200 x5 but if you overclock it may become 250 x5 = 1250Mhz. Change it to x4.
  6. Hello, Did you plug all the power connectors into the motherboard? Page 16 in the manual. Try the video card in the other 16x PCIe slot.
  7. Hello, Maybe your power supply is too weak? Your CPU could be damaged or the heatsink is not properly positioned or you used too much/not enough thermal paste. Can you post the details on the power supply's sticker, eg +12v = 13a +5v = 32a +3.3v = 28a And post a list of all the components that you are using too. Also did you plug the small 4pin ATX connector and floppy style power connector and hard drive style power connector into the motherboard. Page 16 in the manual.
  8. I wonder how many people leave the CPU/FSB ratio on AUTO?
  9. I have cured the problem. For some weird reason if you dont specifiy the CPU/FSB ratio the Hypertransport will run at 800Mhz if you choose x4, x5 and AUTO for the LDT/FSB ratio. I have confirmed my results with another DFI NF4ultra user. A Bug in the BIOS perhaps?
  10. Hello, This one is very good http://www.arctic-cooling.com/cpu2.php?idx=10&disc=
  11. Hello, I am using a Winchester core CPU and the HT should be 1000Mhz/2000Mhz but for some reason it is running at 800Mhz/1600Mhz. I tried all of these settings in the BIOS, 200x1..............= 400Mhz 200x2..............= 800Mhz 200x3..............= 1200Mhz 200x4..............= 1600Mhz 200x5..............= 1600Mhz < Should be 2000Mhz 200xAUTO.......= 1600Mhz So is this a known problem that can be cured with a BIOS update? (I am using the BIOS that came with the board, 00) I used Sisoft sandra, memory bandwidth section displays the chipset HT frequency and to confirm this result I used the AMD CPUinfo tool found here, http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/Techni...71_9706,00.html
  12. Hello, Here are my scores using the default settings, everything on AUTO. EVEREST 5684Mb/s 1783Mb/s 49.5ns memtest 2018Mb/s ScYcS, I take it you are using the best settings possible for your setup? Thanks for the scores, I now have something to go by.
  13. Like I said overclocking is not an option. My goal is to achieve maximum performance without overclocking. Fast is no good if it is not efficient, efficiency is performance. :nod: So you believe that no memory in the world can run at the values I posted. I will post back with my results soon. Before I go, I would like to know what memory scores you get in memtest86+ and EVEREST home edition. (If it is not too much trouble) http://www.lavalys.com/products/overview.p...ang=en&pageid=1 The reason I ask is because I would like to compare my results with another PC. I see that you have an NF3ultra would it be very similar or the same to the NF4ultra? Results using 200Mhz(400DDR) and default CPU speeds, use your personal teaked timings too. For EVEREST all the resluts, READ/WRITE/LATENCY For memtest86+, just the unbuffered memory bandwidth score. Thank you for your time and help. Sharp. I would be very happy if other NF4 users could post their EVEREST/MEMTEST86+ scores (must be default CPU/MEM speeds).
  14. But surely a good CPU +2225 + tweaked memory settings is faster than a good CPU +2225 +memory settings on AUTO. Is level 8 better than level 1/ level 4 better than level 1? I want to tweak or am I asking for the impossible? Thanks for the reply.
  15. Hello, I have a few questions and was wondering if anyone here can help. I would like to know if there is any memory that is capable of the following timings. Everything at 200Mhz(400DDR), I am not planning on overclocking. Command per clock...............Enabled (performance setting) Cas latency...........................X RAS to CAS delay..................X Min RAS active time...............X Row precharge time..............X Row cycle time......................7 (lowest value possible in the BIOS) Row refresh cycle time..........9 (lowest value possible in the BIOS) Row to Row delay.................0 (lowest value possible in the BIOS) Write recovery time...............2 (lowest value possible in the BIOS) Write to read delay...............1 (lowest value possible in the BIOS) read to write delay...............1 (lowest value possible in the BIOS) Refresh period.......................X Wrtie CAS latency..................1 (lowest value possible in the BIOS) DRAM bank interleave.......... .Enabled (performance setting) Has anyone been able to run their memory with the above setup? All the values used are the lowest settings possible. My next question is, If I had a memory module that could use these timings, would it the best settings? (Is the lowest setting always the best, assuming it was possible?) These 2 options, which value are meant for Hi performance? DRAM drive strength..................level 1 to level 8 (is level 8 for Hi performance) DRAM data drive strength..........level 1 to level 4 (Is level 4 for Hi performance) I have read the BEGIN BLUE HERE sticky and it implies that Level 4 is the Hi performance setting but it did not mention anything about Level 1 to level 8. http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showpost.p...37&postcount=10 Thank you for reading and I look forward to your replies
