3 OCZ PC4000 VX dimms in LanPartyUT NF3?


Recommended Posts

Do you think it would be possible to put 3 sticks of OCZ PC4000 VX (the ones that run at 500MHz and 2-2-2-8 [email protected]) in my DFI NF3 250Gb? Would i have to sacrifice 1T command rate if i did that?

Alot of this will depend on your memory controller.

 

Its definitly going to require 2T timing.. I have a 250gb with a 3400 moblie claw that will run 3x512mb's at 200mhz but not much above that .. When I tried 2gig's in it I had to run the ram at 180mhz to be fully stable.. This same ram is in my friends 250gb now with a newcastle and its happy running at 200mhz ..

Thanks guys, i think i'll go for a G.Skill 2x1GB PC4000 kit instead. That should definitely allow me to run 10x250fsb and memory at 1:1 right? I'm thinking of upgrading to s939 and X2 Manchester core in a few months anyway and the 1GB sticks will come in handy there...

I agree with learners permit regarding 10x250 with s S754. My 3700+ will run stably at 12x225, on air. However, I'm also runnning the cpu at 1.65V and although my temps top out at 50-52C under full Prime95 stress load, I consider that too hot of an overclock for average 24/7 pc use.

 

Now what's interesting about the memory controller, is that at 10x250, I cannot get total stability. 2500 MHz is a stable overclock on my pc. I run at 24/7 at 12x210x3 at 2.0,3,2,5 timings on my RAM and the pc runs very fast and smooth.

 

However, at 10x250, when I do get Memtest and Prime95 stable, all I get is very odd pc posts when the pc is turned off and then back on again. Sometimes it will post, get to the point where the RAID is sensed, then it reposts again and will post to Windows. Sometimes it takes a very long time to post, ie, normally ~5-10 seconds after turning pc on , when at 10x250, it can 30 - 60 seconds or it seems longer. When it that happens, it may get to the RAID, then repost again. It seems that the board and the memory want to post at 10x250, but the mem controller can't seem to handle the 250 HTT. I've tried 2x LDT and 3x LDT. Doesn't seem to matter. I guess what I'm experiencing is a cold boot problem. What's particularly frustrasting is that at 10x250 or 10x252, I'm memtest stable at 11 passes and 12 hour Prime95 stable ! If it wasn't for that "cold boot" thing. So, with a S754, 10x250 is not a sure thing at all.
