  1. This was made for the DFI LanPatry UT CFX3200-DR but could be modified for any board. It’s nothing amazing, just a way to keep track of your successful OC settings. I made this spreadsheet to help me keep track of my OC settings because I kept forgetting what settings I had tried and what was working the best. Basically everytime I get a new OC stable, I input the settings in the spreadsheet, input the benchmarks, and save it as a new file so I can compare my different OC results. It’s nothing great, you have to input basically everything yourself. Some of the OC summary input are calculated or copied over from the settings sheet, but you have to basically do it all yourself. It’s just a simple, organized way of keeping track of it all. The way it’s setup now, it prints nicely on two sheets. The first sheet has your system components, default settings, default benchmarks, OC settings, and OC benchmarks. The second sheet has the BIOS settings for Genie BIOS, DRAM settings, and PCIe settings. I’ll post pics of the .xls file. I’ll try to host the file on one of those free hosting sites if anyone wants a copy. I’ve never uploaded a file before so please let me know if it’s not working. Special thanks to OCZ Tony for his CFX3200-DR tweaking guide on bleedingedge.com. That’s where I got started with all the settings. Helped out a ton! Snatch the xls file HERE!
  2. No, I downloaded the most recent one from cpuid's site. I didn't realize it was on the CD. Is it different? I'll try it out when I get home! Cool, I'll try this when I get home too! I've been using ICS 951446 I believe. Thanks guys!
  3. Thanks to all you guys for this thread - it's been wicked informative! Quick question for you, I saw a few pages back that Angry said that the PCI & PCIe are always locked on these boards. Unless ClockGen is fooling around with me, mine is changing with my FSB. It's maintaining a 1/8 ratio. I've tried overclocking the FSB in the BIOS and in Windows via ClockGen and both ways it's reporting a rising PCI bus speed. Any thoughts?
  4. Original post updated - Keep the info coming! Temps would be nice. Anyone ever get instability due to high temps? What are the highest temps you've seen it at (stable or not)?
  5. So why would the sensor be so far from the actual PWM IC? The location would lead one to believe it's monitoring the MOSFET temp, right?
  6. [( Please correct me where I'm mistaken or missing information! New info will be updated as it comes in. )] *Updated 1/18 1pm! Thanks to soundx98 @ DFI-Street* I'm hoping to find out (from somebody who REALLY knows what they're talking about) some accurate info on PWM IC's. I've done some searching and here's what I've found (reference board below)... What is it? - Pulse Width Modulation Integrated Circuit It actually consists of three parts 1. PWMIC - rectangular chip below VDimm MOSFET and to left of ATX Connector 2. The three MOSFETS with Heatsinks soldered to them 3. The sensor - to right of CPU and left of sinked MOSFETs What does it do? - It controls/adjusts/filters voltages from PSU to supply the board components. Where is it? - The circuit includes (1) the rectangular chip below VDimm MOSFET and to left of ATX Connector and (2) the three MOSFETS w/ HS's soldered to them. The sensor ids the small yellow "thingy" between the CPU and sinked MOSFETS. What are some recommended temps? - __^C idle and 45-55^C at full load. How do you lower the PWM IC temp? - I've only found two solutions for this: (1) Arctic Alumina or chromatics "tape" and heatsinks or (2) instal a small fan directed at it (most popular). This appears to be irrelevant unless your experiancing instability during high temps. Reference board - LanParty nF4 Ultra-D

    BIOS problems

    Are you sure you saved it before you exitted the bios? You could always reset everything using the Clear CMOS jumper. If I were you, I'd sit back and enjoy the OC - if it ain't broke, don't fix it!

    Bios settings

    Why not just download CPU-z and run it? It'll tell you what you memory is running at so you won't have to change it if you don't need to.
  9. Don't mean to hijack the thread, but I also have the same problem but I have a waterblock on the chipset. So I have no way of using the top slot. Is there any other fix to get around having to run my X800PRO at 8x?
