  1. I have 2 of these kits. I run 4GB in dual-mode at 252 MHz CAS 3 2T(because the four banks) With 2 GB the same 252 MHz but now with 1T I prefer get some more MHz than lower CAS.
  2. Yes Fastest is really tricky but in my case I decided to not rise the FSB higher and the dividers, in this case multipliers above 1/1 do not work well, so I tested the Fastest and it worked. The benefits are small but present in Sandra.
  3. Hi, I'm running fine with 4 GB and the same memory as you. First I bought a Dual Channel kit and 6 months later another one, the new one by the way has a different heat spreader. After install I couldn't boot because it was set to 1T, after changing to 2T I can run at the same clock speeds as before (252 MHz) and now I can use Fastest in BIOS instead of Fast that was the most I could get with only two 1 GB sticks an 1T. I've been using 704-BTA since the first setup so I didn't try it with 623.

    The HUGE BIG-BIG Windows Vista Thread

    Same problem here with the x64 version. Tried many times. Beta 1 had problems with the RAID but its working BETA 2 at least the x64 gave me no chance to install drivers like the F6 option in Beta 1. ** I don't have any PATA drive installed, maybe this is the problem. Marcelo

    Chipset temps from 43ºC to 32ºC!

    I had a simmilar idea. Check pics please. http://www.mcpdigital.com/forums/MyCooling.jpg http://www.mcpdigital.com/forums/PCLights1.jpg http://www.mcpdigital.com/forums/PCLights2.jpg http://www.mcpdigital.com/forums/CM_Front2.jpg http://www.mcpdigital.com/forums/CMFront.jpg http://www.mcpdigital.com/forums/CM_Side.jpg

    Hi, same ideas here. I need it because my case temps are 32 C and above.

    Temps too Low

    vrodforums, I agree 100% with your comments. I didn't test lots of DFI boards, but after the short circuit of the audio karajan and the mobo I needed to replace it. After replace with the exact same components the same thermal paste applyed by me, twice in each one at least I now have 10C less than the previous mobo. The only thing changed is maybe the mobo version. Another problem is, the idle temps on the first one were quite accurate,and MBM5 was reading the same values as BIOS. With the new one not only the 10C difference in BIOS but MBM5 and Smartguardian reads 5C bellow the BIOS, so almost 15C difference. Go check another mobo manufacturers forums and see the temps of the 3800 X2. Mostof them are higher than the DFIs, and I doubt there is a major real difference in temps between mobos. My cooler is a 700grams of pure cooper and the temps drops so fast that sometimes I don't have time to checkthem when exiting Counter-strike Source. These 2 seconds are enough to change the temps at least 8 C, it can't be true. Just for reference (check the sig): Room temp: 26~29 Idle Temp in BIOS: 34 Idle Temp Smartguardian and MBM5: 29 Load Temp Smartguardian and MBM5: Dual Prime Torture: 53; CS Source: 49 Marcelo
  8. I've tested these modules until 260 MHz CAS 3,3,3,7 1T and is stable, my CPU is too hot to handle 2600MHz
  9. I run mine at 252 CAS 3,3,3,5 1T 2.7v. I can run 230 MHz, CAS 2.5,3,3,5 1T 2.7v. but the other way is faster in most benchmarks.

    AMD 64 how many volts on your CPU?

    1.375 * 110% =~ 1.49v here

    Which core fails prime first?

    The first one is my weak link, as soon as I start using the second core the first one fails. I can say my OC is limited by the core 0.

    3800 x2 Temps

    In my opinion 55C would be fine, but since I don't believe in the sensors anymore I really would assume you are running at real core temps of over 60C. I run dual-prime with 2600 and 1.55v at around 50C using ITE or MBM5. In my case I think is around 60C too even though the sensors are way low. Ah the room temperature = 26~29C Marcelo

    Your Daily Voltage

    My sig @ (252x10 at 1.5v)

    Typical OCs for x2s?

    Not that much. In the memory settings, try using the Auto for the options below because I believe your memory is not TCCD based like mine: DQS Skew Control Auto DQS Skew Value 0 DRAM Drive Strength Auto or Lvl 8 DRAM Data Drive Strength Auto or Lvl 3 Max Async Latency 8 or Auto *** Auto is not a relaxed setting that always works, sometimes the Auto settings put some impossible to handle numbers in your specific OC condition.

  15. Guys, you really have good processors out there. Huge speed with clocks that low. Just for reference mine needs 1.6v to be stable at 2600MHz Marcelo
