  1. The final speed of the Hyper Transport link is set to default 1000mhz

    2000mhz if you consider is a 2 way link. so it runs in each direction at 1000mhz

    so

    FSB at 200 with a x5 multiplier gives you what? the aforementioned 1000mhz final speed which is the spec, it's possible to run the HTT link at higher than 1000mhz, however at one point it will limit your overclock capability

     

    so the golden rule is to stay within the 1000mhz spec

    my spec is 290MHZ FSB, so to stay within spec I lowered the HTT multiplier to 3x which gives a final speed of 870mhz. There's no loss in performance even if I wanted to go crazy and reduced to 2x multiplier as the bandwidth is more than enough for the graphics, IDE and all that good stuff....

    so...long story short...

    there's NO need to increase LDT voltages....leave that alone...that won't do a thing for your overclock...(heck, if you're reducing the multiplier to stay within spec, why add voltage to the ldt?)

    stay below 1000mhz on the final speed and you're ok


  2. Sometimes adding two more sticks of ram to your current setup requires sometimes not only disabling CPC....having 4 sticks of ram not only requires command rate 2T but also limits your overclock capability....so if you have your system with the memory overclocked I'd put the memory on a divider to run as close as possible to 200mhz and then tweak it from there...


  3. I thought like that but there's something weird that happened with me and I will have the answer soon (when I stop being lazy and remove my mobo from the case)

    I had the stock chipset removed and applied as5, so after I did that, the chipset temps on heavy 3d gaming never went above 48C (with the gfx card sitting on top of the chipset cooler) so...I decided to buy the evercool vr-ce like eveybody here recommended with arctic ceramique in the same order...

    So...

    removed the stock HSF

    installed evercool with ceramique...

    guess what...

    Temps under the same heavy 3d game still stayed at 48C...

    I was expecting at least a 5C drop over the old stock HSF which it didn't happen...so I'm thinking could be the ceramique or I didn't apply it properly which I don't think is the case since I have done it before....several times

    so I'm gonna remove the evercool, clean it and reinstall with AS5 to see the results....

    I'll post it here after...


  4. She now wants a system as good as mine, damn! There goes my upgrade money......... Her rig is on the right of my sig. She now demands a new CPU and a new vid card, or I'm cut off...........

    The really bad thing is she wanted the address of this place so she can start reading up on this stuff. I aint gonna be able to get away with anymore of my cons as to why I need a new part!

     

    You're officially SCREWED.....before when she was "ignorant" you could get away with the classic "Oh Honey, without that my machine won't run properly" now you won't be able to get away with anything.... :nod:


  5. I feel the same way...the only problem that we "elitists" face is when trying to poke our nose and give good advice to people in these situations is "I couldn't care less as long as it works...." or "I don't overclock, so I don't give a damn about it" ....or my personal favorite "Why should I pay more to something that's gonna do the same thing? "

     

    So after pointless attempts to convince and give people good advice I came to the following conclusion.....we enthusiasts are a different "breed".....

    Normal people don't understand justifying paying extra dollars for good quality and top of the line products because we enjoy hardware that much....it's a passion...passion cannot be explained....


  6. lol

     

    well...I think I am ready to take that bet with ya bro

     

    looks like Lupul and his 4 goals (including game winner in overtime) makes it 3-0 and the Avs are gonna win probably the next game, but lose in 5...hey...just like they beat Dallas! ;)

    Oh...how that's 3-0 against the avs you wanna bet!....you're funny...hahahahahaha

     

    Well...one thing I agree with you completely...Theodore sucks, I and 98% of the fans are glad he's long gone!

     

    PS: I still have faith in the avs...despite the fact the're behind 0-3 and their goalie sucks

    20 seconds left and NJ takes the lead

     

    then Carolina ties it with 3 seconds left...

     

    wtf

     

     

     

    looks like Ottawa needs a new plan...44 shots and only 1 goal...

     

    I told you the streak was gonna end with Carolina...lol

    You didn't believe me...


  8. If your HTT is at 270 as your sig suggests you're nowhere near needing ANY chipset voltage increase as these boards can hit 300HTT without breaking a sweat....

    To prove my point....try and decrease the multiplier of your CPU to something like 5x

     

    and then see if you can get past 270HTT....I can garantee you will....

     

    PS: at 1.8volts your CPU will either die soon, or have a very short life span....
