I woulda said that but as I said, not experienced with PC3200 for OCing. Highest I've ever gone with PC3200 is with my FX-60 to 2.9GHz and that was on a divider and with loose timings and 2 sticks of PC4000 for a total of 4GBs.

 

It doesnt matter whats the numbers say on the outside...it's just what it will do memtest stable...

 

Once the ram goes above it SPD speed it doesnt know whats it is..

 

My ram in my 3G's rig is ddr400 (3200) and it's running at ddr600 and thats what it thinks it is...it doesnt know any different...

 

Thats whys it's important to always boot to memtest first while playing with overclocking...if it passes that then move to everything else...;)

QFT. I had PC3200 TCCD that did 300MHz, PC3500 BH-5 that did 260MHz.. budget stuff is the best if you luck out.

Those were the days for sure. Back before everybody started speed-binning the crap out of memory. I have some great sticks of the Mushkin L2 Bh-5 and L2 V2 TCCD, I hope they never die on me..

dede99 - Take out 2 sticks so you're only running 2x512 for testing.

You may have to loosen your MAL/RP as well because of running on a divider, give the memory controller time to work with the divider.

nope this isn't the problem maybe this cpu really can't stand stress testing, but it's stable for game's and 3dmark06 also

i don't know any more :(

i tryed alot on timing's for the ram read alot but nothing changes it

if any idea pls tell me i will try it out

thank's

We need complete RAM settings like so:

 

DRAM Configuration Settings:

 

DRAM Frequency Set............................ - 200=RAM/FSB:01/01

Command Per Clock (CPC)....................... - Enabled

CAS Latency Control (Tcl)..................... - 3

RAS# to CAS# delay (Trcd)..................... - 3

Min RAS# active time (Tras)................... - 6

Row precharge time (Trp)...................... - 2

Row Cycle time (Trc).......................... - 7 Bus Clocks

Row refresh cyc time (Trfc)................... - 13 Bus Clocks

Row to Row delay (Trrd)....................... - 02 Bus Clocks

Write recovery time (Twr)..................... - 02 Bus Clocks

Write to Read delay (Twtr).................... - 01 Bus Clocks

Read to Write delay (Trwt).................... - 02 Bus Clocks

Refresh Period (Tref)......................... - 3120 Cycles

DRAM Bank Interleave.......................... - Enabled

 

DQS Skew Control.............................. - Auto

DQS Skew Value................................ - 0

DRAM Drive Strength........................... - Level 7

DRAM Data Drive Strength...................... - Level 1 (50% reduced)

Max Async Latency............................. - 7.0

DRAM Response Time............................ - Normal

Read Preamble Time............................ - 4.5

IdleCycle Limit............................... - 16 Cycles

Dynamic Counter............................... - Disable

R/W Queue Bypass.............................. - 16 x

Bypass Max.................................... - 04 x

32 Byte Granularity........................... - Disable(4 Bursts)

Okay, first thing I noticed, your MAL needs to go up if your RPT needs to be that high. I'd start out with 9.0 Max Async Latency and 5.5 Read Preamble Time and go up from there on both of them, in steps

 

Next. Ideally, your TRC should be your TRAS plus your TRP (I think) which means it should be 12. and your TRFC should be around 2-4 more than that, so go for 14.

 

Most likely the settings I suggested are only going to make you run a little better, they may not allow you to OC much more, if at all.

 

The fact that you're having to run that loose to pass at 2.7 only tells me one thing: You need better RAM. Sell those suckers on EBay and getcha some Mushkin ;) lol

 

Oh yes, last but not least, my PC4800 liked these and you sticks might too:

 

Set your DRAM Drive Strength to Level 7 and your DRAM Data Drive Strength to Level 0 (50% reduced) that MIGHT help you OC a LITTLE more.
