  1. One week later now, and I haven't had troubles anymore. I did not flash the bios and I have not changed any settings after my last post here. I'm happy to not have anymore troubles, but at the same time I'm not happy since I don't know what caused the troubles. So, if the issues might come back and I don't know what to do then. But for now I'm just happy. Thanks to everybody who pesponded!
  2. Here are my settings. First setting are bios settings, () these are the ones I got from A64 info. FSB - 311 LDT - 3 CPU/FSB Ratio - 9x Vcore - 1.4v LDTv - 1.5v CHPv - 1.2v vDIMM - 2.6v DRAM Frequency Set - 166 (DRAM/FSB:5/06) - with above config = 254MHz Command Per Clock (CPC) - Enable CAS Latency Control (Tcl) - 3.0 RAS# to CAS# delay (Trcd) - 04 Bus Clocks Min RAS# active time (Tras) - 07 Bus Clocks Row precharge time (Trp) - 04 Bus Clocks Row Cycle time (Trc) - 07 Bus Clocks Row refresh cyc time (Trfc) - Auto (16 Bus Clocks) Row to Row delay (Trrd) - 02 Bus Clocks Write recovery time (Twr) - 02 Bus Clocks Write to Read delay (Twtr) - 02 Bus Clocks Read to Write delay (Trwt) - 03 Bus Clocks Refresh Period (Tref) - 3120 Cycles Write CAS Latency (Twcl) - auto (1) DRAM Bank Interleave - enabled DQS Skew Control - auto (off) DQS Skew Value - 0 DRAM Drive Strength - auto (Level ?) DRAM Data Drive Strength - auto (Level 1) Max Async Latency - auto 11ns DRAM Response Time - normal Read Preamble Time - auto 9.0ns IdleCycle Limit - 256 Cycles Dynamic Counter - disabled R/W Queue Bypass - 16x Bypass Max - 07x 32 Byte Granularity - Disable(4 bursts) (A64 info says 8 bursts) Anybody got some suggestions for changing / improving settings?

    Opty 165 kills my ram timings

    Ok: I changed CPU VID Startup value to 1.4V, since the systeem wouldn't boot with higer ram speeds of lower timings. So, with that raised and mem set to 166MHz the systeem was able to boot @ 2792MHz, with memory @ 253MHz @ 3-4-4-7! Running dual Prime now for some time, looks ok so far. Only thing I don't get: I thought I just changed the startup vcore, but now in Windows I see the vcore is 1.4 in general. That doens't look like the explaining of the features over here.

    Opty 165 kills my ram timings

    Having troubles atm with my floppy. I'll try that after the weekend. Is there something in de timings or settings I've posted so far what can explain the lower ram speeds and higher timings?

    Haven't tried a different bios yet, got no clue which one to use.

    Opty 165 kills my ram timings

    Since my videocard is broken, i'm working now with a crappy pci card. So I couldn't manage to get the whole screen: http://img239.imageshack.us/img239/3175/a64screen7jw.jpg 32 byte granularity is set to Disabled (8 bursts).
  8. My Opteron with stepping CCBBE 0610DPMW seems to be a nice one. 2.7GHz @ tosck volt prime stable for 13+ hours. For this I use the XP-120. The only trouble is my ram. I have 2GB G.Skill DDR500 that can do 260MHz @ 3-4-3-6-1 (stock DDR500 HZ, 3-4-4-8-1). Now I have to put it down to 143MHz, resulting in a poor 208MHz @ 3-3-3-8. Should I raise the vcore, is the mem controller weak, is it something else? Is it something with the timings? Please help, cause this Opty is a rocker! Edit: if the ram speed is too high or the timings are too tight, there's a bsod: machine check exception 0x0000009C. Here's some pics of settings en timings: http://img119.imageshack.us/img119/71/p10100738io.jpg http://img240.imageshack.us/img240/6727/p10100745dp.jpg http://img119.imageshack.us/img119/1626/p10100758an.jpg
  9. Right now I'm running N4D623-1 bios. Can someone tell if I need to update my bios for dual-core support?
  10. And therefore I cannot use X2 cpu's?
  11. People, I wish to put a X2 cpu on my SLI-D mainboard. But my PSU doesn't have a 8 pins connector. Is it still possible to use a X2 cpu? Or do I need a new PSU for this? Thanx.
  12. First I let the 7800GT run on stock speeds (445-1070MHz). So far, this already seems to give no problems anymore. When I started overclocking this card months ago, I could easily reach 480MHz+ core. Now artefacts start already @ 470MHz. Is the card slowly going to collapse? What I find strange though, is that 3 hours of ATITool scanning for artefacts doesn't give any problems @ 465-1225MHz.
  13. 32A @ 12V should be enough I believe. I'll set all to default settings and see what iyt does. But I don't really understand why I should do this, since the stability test were pretty much ok. Ide drivers are uninstalled, with them I couldn't even boot. Can try mem divider, but 12+ hours memtest would be enough for stability, right. No Dcom errors in the event log. Idle cycle limit is set to 256clks. Later on I'll try 128, although 256 is used in most reviews.
