  1. What are you worrying about? Temps are low, VCore is low..... Push on I would say. Temps are really nice.
  2. I would try to get to 4Ghz. I'm running 4022Mhz @ 1.26850V. No probs. Temps are max 75 degrees C @ 100% load. If you have a good cooler these temps are no problem at all. Right now i'm trying to get to 4.1GHz. As long as my temps stay under 80 i'm happy with it.
  3. Your RAM is rated to go 1600MHz. But it probably can run a on higher frequency. For example: My mem is rated 1866MHz but now it runs 1920 MHz. When I use 2:8 divider it runs @ 1536. So I tried 2:10. In memtest it's stable for 6 hours. Didn't test it on LinX yet. Maybe your mem is doing 1700MHz. I think it's worth to try.
  4. Looks good. Temps too. But why do you want to use multiplier 19? Is there a special reason for you to lower the multiplier?
  5. I would say: Leave Turbo and HTT enabled instead of lowering your multiplier. Set your ram on 2:8. This will put your cpu @ 3675 with BClk 170. But your mem will run @ 1400. In that case you can tighten your timings. But if your mem is capable you might set the divider to 2:10.
  6. Blaise, I've fitted the mobo in the antec. I don't see any reason why it should'nt fit. Space enough, back panel comes out on the right place, en the mountings are clear the screw the mobo to the case. Grtz Erik
  7. Thanx Paul. It helps a lot. Maybe I'll order this one as well. Grtz Erik
  8. Thanx paul. The outervision calculator isn't opening here. So I can't calculate anything. What PSU do you recommend? Grtz Erik
  9. Euh..... Never heard of an EATX board. I've already bought the antec a while back. The EVGA is also arrived. But it seems to fit in the antec. I didn't mount it completely, but I'll try first thing tomorrow. Are the mounts different? What should be the problem exactly? Never noticed that the EVGA is a EATX.
  10. Sorry for the late response. I've been on holiday for 10 days. I've made my choices for the hardware. Maybe another PSU have to be ordered. This is what I've ordered: CPU: Intel Core I7 920 (seems the 950 isn't much of an OC-er) CPU Cooler: Prolimatech Megahalem (not planning to go on water again) Mem: Corsair Dominator GT DDR3, 6GB kit, CL7-8-7-24 (CMG6GX3M3A1866C7) Mobo: EVGA X58 Classified Video Card: EVGA GTX275 1792MB PSU: ????? ( I have a Corsair 620HX, but I don't think it will be enough) HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F1 750GB (HD753LJ) Case: Antec Twelve Hundred Maybe I'll go for SLI later on. But this is what I've ordered.
  11. Thanx for the quick reply. Although I don't really have a budget I think the EVGA is a little expensive.
  12. Hello everyone, Since my last build and the ending of the DIY site, I haven't been very active on the forum. Now I want to build a new rig and I'm having some difficulties choosing an new mobo and Video Card. I want to build a rig with the following: CPU: Intel Core I7 950 CPU Cooler: Prolimatech Megahalem (not planning to go on water again) Mem: Corsair Dominator DDR3, 6GB kit, 9-9-9-24-2T (TR3X6G1866C9DF) Mobo: ????? Video Card: ????? PSU: ????? ( I have a Corsair 620HX, but I don't think it will be enough) HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F1 750GB (HD753LJ) Case: Antec Twelve Hundred For the mobo I'm thinking about the DFI UT X58-T3EH8 or the Foxconn Bloodrage. (been thinking about a Gigabyte GA-EX58-EXTREME too) The DFI is hard to get in the Netherlands (only one distributor), and the Foxconn has got enough distributors but isn't in stock anywhere. I have a DFI now and it worked fine for me. I have no experience with Foxconn at all. I've had a Gigabyte a long time ago, and I see there doing well in the tests too. But as said I've been out since my last build (see my sig) I do not really have some kind of budget. I just want to build a nice system. So any idea is appreciated. Thanx in advance.
  13. I had this issue once, but not on the same mobo and a different cpu. In my occasion a CMOS clear did the trick.
  14. IMO if your RAM gives errors you should RMA it. An error is an error. I've had some prolems with my OCZ mem a while back too. RMA'd it for 3 times because of errors. Then switched to another brand, but that's a personal thing.
  15. I had the same a couple of weeks ago. First i ran memtest, but memtest gave no errors. Seemed my videocard died on me. Out of the blue. Can you test it on another pc?
  16. Since your mobo has an post display, when your rig hangs/freezes, does the display give a code? In what slots did you put your RAM. (I think you have 2 sticks?) Try placing them in slot 1 and 3. And as said above, set your ram settings in the bios manually. Don't leave them on auto.

    Introducing Myself

    Thanx, Greetings in my own language.... See you guys around on the board.
  18. Hello, I'm Erik. And I live in the netherlands. Because of my work i've stayed a few months in another country, so i've missed the merge to this forum. When I got back my rig had some "issues", and had to straighten that out first. First my Videocard died, then my HDD and last week my soundcard. I was a member of DIY-street. I'm still learning to become a good OC-er, but didn't try much the last couple of months. But i'm planning to build a new rig. Probably an Asus Rampage Extreme mobo. But I'm not sure what CPU and mem. But the mobo isn't for sale here yet, so I've got some time left to make up my mind. (Suggestions are welcome) Nice to be back online though. Well, that's about it. Grtz Erik.
  19. Here's the link: http://www.diy-street.com/forum/showthread...8518#post158518
  20. I believe it comes from the second core. 1000 for each core.
  21. You have your Vcore still set to auto? Try upping it a little with your FSB set to 270.
  22. Maybe upping your LDT Volt Control. I'm running 3GHz (250x11) @ 1.34V with my LDT Volt @ 1.34V.
  23. First do a good cmos clear. For about 15 minutes. Then start up and set the following bios settings: ( I know this is all stock) FSB Bus Frequency: 200 LDT/FSB Frequency Ratio: 5 CPU/FSB Frequency Ratio: 10 RD580 HT PLL Speed: high HT Bus NMOS Drive Strength: 5 HT Bus PMOS Drive Strength: 5 HT Bus Receiver Impendence: 10 CPU HT Bus Drive Strength: strong K8 Cool & Quiet Support: disable CPU VID Control: 1.35 CPU VID Special Control: auto DRAM Voltage Control: 2.6 SB PCIE Voltage: 1.80 NB Analogue Voltage: 1.34 LDT Bus Voltage: 1.34 NB Core Voltage: 1.34 DRAM Frequency Set: 200 (1:1) CPC: enable CAS (tCL): 2 tRCD: 3 tRAS: 5 tRP: 2 tRC: 7 tRFC: 13 tRRD: 2 tWR: 2 tWTR: 1 tRWT: 2 tREF: 3684 Bank Interleaved: enable Errata 94: Disabled Errata 123: AUTO Odd Divisor Correct: disable DQS Skew Control: auto DQS Skew Value: 0 DRAM Drive Strength: 7 DRAM Data Drive Strength: 3 DIMM 1/2 Clock Timing Skew: DIMM 3/4 Clock Timing Skew: Max Async Latency: 5ns Read Preamble Time: 4ns IdleCycle Limit: 256 Dynamic Counter: enable R/W Queue Bypass: 16 Bypass Max: 7 Burst Length: 4 Then try to boot your rig. If it boot's, restart and go into the bios. Set your DRAM Frequency to 100MHz (1:2) And raise your fsb with 5 MHz. And try to boot again. Let me know if these settings work. Erik
  24. In what slots do you have your mem? Orange or yellow? Did you set all the mem settings by hand, or did you leave them @auto? First set all you memsettings. Then set your divider to 1:2, your multi to 9 and start upping your FSB by 5 MHz @ the time.
  25. Hello, @ first make sure you have a decent cooling. (i don't want to get the blame if you burn your cpu) Set your memdivider to 1:2. This to make sure it doesn't get maxed out on you FSB. (Don't change any timings.) You can set the HTT to 4 if you stay under a 250 MHz FSB. Then increase your FSB by 5 MHz. And see if you can boot into windows. If it does... increase it again by 5. If it doesn't take 5% of your (total) FSB. And try to boot again. Or you can up your V-core a little bit. But try to get as far as possible @ stock V-core I presume you use stock cooling, so I shouldn't go above 1.4 - 1.45 V And watch your temps!!!!!
