  1. My stock chipset fan is nice and quiet, even at 7000rpm(max), i can barely hear it. My chipset temps never go past 39-40*c(idle at 34*c)....with chipset voltage at max. I did, however scrap off the thermal pad and put a dab of OCZ ultra 5+(same exact thing as AS5) on the chipset. It may not last that long, but it's working great now. CJ
  2. Pull up torture test, and click on largefft's then click on custom, use these settings blend alone tests 1790mb ram, which will cause your system to become really slow and you will be unable to use it for anything. 750mb is plenty of memory to test and will reveal any issues that may be there. CJ
  3. Large FFT's is more CPU intensive with a average bit of ram. Blend is very very memory intensive. Custom would be better for you, click on large fft's, then click on custom. This will allow you to tweak large fft's to suit you. Put 700-900mb of ram used. CJ
  4. If you guys go by the little write up i did, you really can't go wrong. Just be patient as with any overclocking. It takes time and patience. These sticks are generally very good overclockers and great performers. Let me know if you need any help. CJ
  5. Here is a screenie of 252mhz 3-4-3-5 prime stable.... 280*9 ram:252mhz 3.4.3.5
  6. sent you a PM....... here is what i wrote, so everybody else can see.....this is the very shortened version: Start at 250mhz 1:1 200divider. Use the timings i have but use 3.4.4.8, start clockgen and run prime. Up the FSB 250, 251, 252....ect until you get an error in prime(large FFT's). Note the max mhz before you got an error, subtract 5mhz from that number this will be important later. Go into BIOS and enable memtest. Start with test #8 and see if ytou get errors, at the max fsb minus 5mhz(if your max was 280mhz, this would be 275). The lower half of the timings is the most sensitive of the timings. You will start to see errors in test 8......note how many errors took place, Go into BIOS again...and start making changes, one by one....starting at the bottom. Note the changes you made. Go back into memtest and run test 8 again, not the number of errors. You keep doing this in test 8 until you get down to zero errors, then go to test # 5, you may get a few errors in test five. use the notes you took on what effected the errors in test 8 and make the appropriate changes so that you can pass at least 5 passes of test 5. If you can't get all the errors out of these tests, you may have to back down FSB 1-2 more mhz...then keep going. Once you have all the errors down to 0 both test 5 and 8(and you are prime stable), then you can try to tighten your main timings up, first try 3.4.4.7.....then 3.4.3.8.......3.4.3.7...3.3.3.8....ect(basically, lower each number and see if it works in memtest, make note of your changes as always and what each lowering did). Get them the lowest you can at that FSB......you may not be able to run anything less than 3.4.4.8....but thats OK.... Then, i suggest finding your next level down from your higest, that you can run on a divider with you CPU at max clock(or whatever you prefer).....at this next level down, see if you can get some tighter timings, by doing the same procedure.....keep in mind that by this time, you already know what will work for your max, this will make everything lower than max alot easier to tweak out. You will most likely be able to greatly improve timings as you go down in ram speed, if you did your max settings correctly(if you follow my suggestions, you should be able to systematically get everything correct). I was able to really tighten the timings up at 252mhz, my max is 276mhz. I'm currently working on 200 mhz timings, which should really be tight, considering what i have been able to squeez out of DDR504..3.4.3.5...i will report my findings when i get done. Once this is down, boot back into windows and run prime large FFT's and see how long is takes to error out(hopefully it does not). You want to do this after every final for each FSB mhz you decide to run, that you got all the errors out in memtest. Good luck CJ
  7. updated my results again. I worked on the DDR500 range (252mhz) and found that i was able to really tighten things up at these sticks' rated stock speed. 3.4.3.5 was my final for 252mhz....please have a look if you are intersted. My results are back on page 10_______ http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showpost.p...8&postcount=142 CJ
  8. try upping you vcore in .025 increments, raise it .025 first, without touching FSb, then see if it will pass DMI pool.... stock vcore for your x2 is 1.35v, i believe(it not, it's 1.30v). You will need to know this if you take vid off auto. If you have not read the overclocking guide, i suggest you give it a read....it will help you alot. http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=28049 EDIT: i just re-read your first post......i see you have tried upping vcore. My only suggestion at this point is that it's a PSU issue. You should be able to get alot further than 235fsb on stock vcore. CJ
  9. Your memory is already underclocked being on the 1/02 divider. I would wait until you get the new PSU before you start overclocking. This will insue that you have enough power and amperes to sustain your system stability. Maybe this has been covered, but do you have all your power connections to your board hooked up?(there are 4 total). If you do not, this will cause major instablity as well. CJ
  10. i must of missed something....i didn't see where he said what divider he was on. Eitherway, his settings would be a good start, so we can at least see what's going on without assuming. CJ
  11. what kind of ram is that you are running? whats it's SPD timings? Are you running the ram 1:1? You can always run the lowest divider to take the ram out of the question. The proper way to find your highest overclock is to put your ram on the lowest divider, to single out the CPU, then work from there to find your max CPU speed, then, put the CPU on a lower multi(underclock) and start working on your ram overclock. Once you find the two, you then blend to get your optimum set-up. Give the overclock guide a look and also post up all of your timing (CPU and DRAM) and let's see what we can do to help with your overclock. CJ
  12. go with a new PSU, something with at least 32-34a on the +12v rail. Also, if your ram timings are not correct, it will stop just before DMI POOL and reboot, every time. Loosen your timings a bit and keep trying. Also, you may want to make a smaller sig pic. The mods are going to give you hell for that one!!! trust me! CJ
  13. i started at the bottom of the settings, as it seems second to Tcl, Trcd, Tras, Trp(i.e. 3-4-4-8) the bottom section of the settings is most important. Work with Dram drive strength(higher is faster), DRAM Data Drive Strength(higher is faster) , Max Async Latency(lower is faster), Read Preamble Time(lower is faster) first, then work your way up to the timings at the top to tweak out the final settings, after you get memtest errors taken care of. I found this to work really well, as this gives you a place to start, allowing you to systematically go through all the combinations. It's difficult to do if you don't know where to start. Good luck! CJ
  14. Ok....i did alot of testing......whew....finally got somewhere. Alright, here are my timings for 270mhz, 276mhz(which was my MAX) and 252mhz.

This seems to be the really sweet spot for this set.

A few notes: These sticks seem to be very sensitive to drive strength and drive stength data, along with max async latency and read preamble time. Another thing i noticed was the they respoded very strange to tref. I got the best results by leaving it on auto, which seems to default to the lowest setting for the ram speed you have selected(divider). 32 byte granulatirty was also a big player in stablity at high clocks. TRC and TRFC was somewhat sensitive, but not a huge player, just helped in tweaking after stability was gained from the other major settings mentioned above. I recommend using memtest test#8 to find the quikest errors, then after getting all the errors out of test #8, move to test#5 for the final tweaking. Once memtest stable, go to prime95 and do the torture test large FFT's or the more memory intense Blend test(which i prefer).
  15. OK...i have gone back to the drawing board......lol it seems that, being stable 1:1 is alot easier than stable on a divider. For instance. I can get stable 1:1 all the way to 277mhz.....but i have yet to find a good stable setting for anything over 250 on a divider........WTH am i doing wrong? Here are my current settings: Motherboard: DFI LanParty NF4 Ultra-D CPU: AMD Opteron 165 CCB1E 0550VPMW RAM: 2x1GB G.Skill PC4000 (F1-4000USU2-2GBHZ) BIOS: 704-2BTA FSB Bus Frequency - 270 LDT/FSB Frequency Ratio - 3 CPU/FSB Frequency Ratio - 9 PCI eXpress Frequency - 100Mhz CPU VID StartUp Value - AUTO CPU VID Control - auto CPU VID Special Control - Auto LDT Voltage Control - 1.30v Chip Set Voltage Control - 1.50v DRAM Voltage Control - 2.5v DRAM Configuration Settings: DRAM Frequency Set - 200 = RAM/FSB 1:1 Command Per Clock (CPC) - Enable CAS Latency Control (Tcl) - 03 RAS# to CAS# delay (Trcd) - 04 Bus Clocks Min RAS# active time (Tras) - 08 Bus Clocks Row precharge time (Trp) - 04 Bus Clocks Row Cycle time (Trc) - 10 Bus Clocks Row refresh cyc time (Trfc) - 14 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) - 3684 Cycles DRAM Bank Interleave - Enabled DQS Skew Control - auto DQS Skew Value - 0 DRAM Drive Strength - weak3 DRAM Data Drive Strength - level 1 Max Async Latency - 9 DRAM Response Time - normal Read Preamble Time - 6 IdleCycle Limit - 256 Cycles Dynamic Counter - Disable R/W Queue Bypass - 16 x Bypass Max - 07 x 32 Byte Granularity - Disable(4 Bursts) I have tried just about every combanation i have seen.........nothing seems to be stable in prime95x2 on a divider. I need some help bad!! CJ
  16. The mosfets that are to the right of your CPU on the board. They have little heatsinks on them. CJ
  17. Look about right. What HSF are you using? My temps at 1.450v on my 165 @2.7ghz (300*9): Idle 25*c Load 44-46*c PWM area Idle 34*c Load 40*c Chipset @1.6v Idle 34*c Load 38*c I use a Thermalright XP-120 w.120mm panaflo M1A And another Panaflo M1A intaking from the front of the case Stock chipset fan w/ OCZ ultra 5+ thermal paste(same exact stuff as AS5) Only have my psu exhausting out of the back....thats it! Works like a charm. Ambient temps in my house are always 73*F. CJ
  18. what kind of drives are they? and what is the bus type?? Once RAID0 is set-up, the pc will see all the drives in the arrray as one. CJ
  19. Well..........277mhz no errors DFI NF4 Ultra-D 277 704-2BTA 2.6v 200 enable 3 4 8 4 7 14 2 2 2 3 3684 enable off 0 weak4 level3 8 normal 5 256 enable 16x 7x disable I will end up running 300*9 on the 183 divider which will bring ram to 270mhz. These HZ sticks rock!! Please enter me into the spreadsheet! Thanks for all the helpful info. CJ
  20. Well, let me give the orange a try....lol I will be back in a sec.
  21. 277mhz CJ 200 enabled 3 4 8 4 9 14 2 2 2 4 3120 enabled increase 255 weak 3 level 1 9 normal 6.5 256 disable 16x 7x dis
  22. Ok........got the HZ's in the yellow slots, it looks like they won't go over 280 at the moment. Trying some different settings at the moment. Should i try the orange slots? CJ
  23. i had a feeling that was going to happen. I stand corrected. Good info though! CJ EDIT: On a side note, my BIOS temps and temps in windows seem to be very close. BIOS temps are 29-30*c, while in os temps at idle are 25-26*c.
  24. hmm. Ok, go into BIOS and look at your idle temp, let it set for about 5 mins before you jot it down. Then, boot into windows and use whatever you use to moniter temps(smartguardian, speedfan..ect.) see what the idle temp is there and compare(after 5 min idle). Post the results up for us to see. CJ
  25. what are your ambient temps with a load temp of 41*c @ 1.4v? And what are your stock voltage load temps? CJ
