Whichk BIOS for TCCD / A64 3200+ Venice E6?

Recommended Posts



I'm very new to my new DFI Board (I will get it soon, as my first board was defective).


I've got two questions:


1. What BIOS is recommended for 3200+ Venice E6 with G.Skill F1-3200DSU2-1GBLC (TCCD)


2. What timings should I use at 200Mhz (stable and fast, which will work in any case with my memory modules)



Thanks for answers!

You are probably best served putting the latest official BIOS on the board(6/23-3).


For RAM timings, Hynix chips tend to give people problems with DFI boards.

sorry - I didn't change my signature yet.


I now have G.Skill F1-3200DSU2-1GBLC (2x 512 Samsung TCCD)



for these memory modules, is there a different BIOS Version recommended? Which timings should I use at 200Mhz?


Thanks for any help!

I finally achieved the following stable settings:


BIOS: 623-3


RAM: 275Mhz

LDT Ratio: 3.0

CPU Ratio: 9.0


RAM Timings:


Vddr: 2.7v

Tcl: 2.5

Trcd: 3

Tras: 6

Trp: 3

Trc: 9

Trfc: 12

Trrd: 2

Twr: 2

Twrt: 2

Trwt: 2

Tref: 4708

Twcl: 1


Bank int.: Enable

Skew control: 255 Increase

Drive strength: 7

Data strength: 2

Max. Async: 7ns

Read Preamble: 5ns

Idle Cycle: AUTO

Dyn. Counter: Enable

R/W Bypass: 16x

Bypass Max: 7x

32Bit Gran.: Disable


But in Sisoft Sandra, I cannot achieve the Memory Bandwith which was achieved by kakaroto (link: http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=57317)

I get something about 6900 in both cases, not 7200...


Is that because I've got a SLI-DR and not an ULTRA-D? Or because of the BIOS?

You can try some more tweaking. This is a slow process, very time consuming.

Change only one item at a time. Load system and test , then make more adjustments to same until you are stable, then move to next item to tweak. I can see several that can effect bandwidth and stability. These are Skew Control,Max Async, Bypass Max,Drive Strength, R/w Bypass, twrt, trc & trfc.


Of course 6900 is pretty darn good. If you find it acceptable.
