  1. I just installed the XP-90c in my system just a few days ago and I let it hang over the dimm slots. it fits no prob so don't worry about your ram not being able to fit.
  2. Just curious guys, and I'm not sure if there was a thread on this already but does anyone know the max safe temps for the 4400+, PWM IC, and the Chipset. I just wanna make sure i'm not running too hot. Right now i'm running at 2.7 prime stable and my voltages at cpu-1.56v, LDT Bus 1.28v and my DRAM is at 2.8. My temps at load being CPU 40-45, PWM IC 50-55 and my Chipset sits around 45-50 they don't seem too high but i could be totally wrong, thats why I thought I'd ask some of you guys. Also I'm running stock air right now but have a Thermalright XP-90c siting beside me in it's box, gonna put it in soon.
  3. Here's what I have my memory set at... DRAM Frequency 166 CPC Enable Tcl 2.5 Trcd 03 Bus Clocks Tras 08 Trp 03 Trc 13 Trfc 16 Trrd 03 Twr 03 Twtr 02 Trwt 03 Tref Auto Twcl Auto DRAM Bank interleave Enabled DQS Skew Control Auto DQS Skew Value 0 Ram DLL Speed Auto DRAM drive strength Auto DRAM data drive strength Auto Max Async Latency Auto DRAM Response time Fast Read Preamble time Auto idlecycle limit 256 cycles Dynamic Counter disable R/W Queue Bypass 16X Bypass Max 07X 32 Byte Granularity Disable(4 Bursts) I hope that helps you a little bit.
  4. Currently i'm running at 2.7 and so far it is stable. I'm only using stock heatsink and fan. I'm running a 270X10 my voltage is sitting around 1.57Vcore and my temp is sitting around 40-45 load. Although I acheived this through many hours of screwing up lol. I hope this gives some of you some hope on getting yours up that extra little bit. I have a thermalright XP-90c coming in the mail so look forward to it getting here and trying to up it a little more, maybe even get a 2.8 stable.
  5. As strange as it may seem the culprit was the cpu start up voltage which I had set to 1.55 with the old bios, and I had no problems with it booting up and staying stable. But now with the new bios I have had to leave it just at startup and it seems to be diong the trick. I now have my cpu oc'd to 2.7 at 1.57v and as far as i can tell with all the tests i'm runnig it appears to be stable with temps of around 40-45 at full load, and thats on stock heatsink and fan.

  7. Yeah, flashing the bios sucks. I was looking through my everest report, and it said that the bios was quite old, and also that my cmos chip itself is "Not for resale"...(?)... so, I figured, hey, why not flash this bios and see if I can get any more new settings. Mistake number 1- fixing something that isn't broken. This official release bios sucks, I seem to have lost my ability to simply have the board reboot into secondary cmos save file automatically like it did before. Also, I'm not able to run my old timings and fsb with this new bios.... crappy.... Next I try the beta 11-25-05 bios that many here seem partial too, and again, no ability to autoload secondary settings when I push a timing too far. This I can live with, but I'm pretty darned confused as to why I am unable to attain the same fsb speeds as before... with all the settings identical, and same components and all, now I can get to 270 fsb (heck I can get to 310 if I dump ram and multiplier speeds) but I'm just not getting the same overall speeds as before. Moral of the story? If it isn't broke, don't fix it. And if you do fix something that's not broken, then you'd better hope that you've a resourse like dfi-street to help you out heheh. Back to the drawing board....
  8. First of all, thanks a lot guys for the quick responses, it's definitely appreciated, and I have made great use of all of the links. The overclock database is pretty useful... the only thing that could make it better would be you were able to select specific components (a java app, or something like that) and see what people were able to get, as opposed to using find in a browser window for only 1 search term, but hey, I'm sure the site will get to that maybe one day. Well, it looks like my results concur about the max ram o/c fsb. In order to get myself up to a 265 bus, I had to down clock to 5:6 (166)MHz for the ram, which gives it about 221 final speed. Seeing now that my ram is able to maintain at that divider, I'm going to give it another shot at upping the FSB some more... I'm just using the standard boxed heatsink and fan, but it seems to be doing the job, for now anyway. Looks like some people are able to hit 2.8 with the 4400 x2, so I'm going to shoot for that.
  9. And holy crap, does the myriad of options ever have me confused. Specifically, memory timings have me scratching my head a bit. I've got some options here that I've not even really seen before. Does anybody have any advice (or more easier...) any links to good guides for any of the components that I've got listed in my sig? Aside from a stable 225 mhz bus OC, it looks like there's a bit more that I need to learn about timings and the limitations of my memory. Thanks for any replies guys.
