Man that suck's I was hoping to see that 3200 up there, But I don't know if i would sell it if i was u. How often do any of us see a chip that will go that high, I think you should keep it around just because of how much work you put into it. Monarch has the 165's OEM for 219.99 right now and I keep trying to talk myself out of buying one.

Going to do a little checking. Maybe the block isn't perfectly seated.. I still find it odd that it won't do any better than it did with water. I know it's not bugged at the temps I'm at because I can duplicate my water OC just not get any higher. Might just be the limit of the memory controller, small fft's will run but blend will always drop out on large fft's. It's done it with 3 different sets of memory and every multi/divider combination I can try.

See if you see anything. I have been through this thing back and forth for a week. 3 pages of notes on just this jump from 3169 to 3.2. 95% of the settings can be left on auto and the results are same. Where it is now and settings tried in parenthesis

I think my chip is hitting the limit on the memory controller too, With this uccc i had to set mal to 11ns and read preamble to 9ns to get it stable at 3170. Some of the divider's are a real pain in the a$$ to get working right on my chip, and at least on air 3200 is a no go for me right now. Don't forget I am just keeping that crown warm for ya I want to see u get back up on top. Then I have something to push for besides pi's which are really starting to piss me off lol.

Why don't you give it more Vcore? 1.56-1.57 isn't that much really. Try 1.59

 

Also, you -are- starting to hit that range where the high FSB is requiring a bit of chipset teasing. Try 1.3 LTD voltage and 1.6v chipset. Upping those voltages stabilized my chip to get that 3100GHz Pi score.

 

I say you also use those loosened MAL/RP settings.

U might try upping the ldt and chipset like Thraxz said it has helped me when using high fsb also. My super pi run at 3270 took the extra voltage on those just to boot and get that 7/10 divider working. (even though i got a worse time than at 3200 with 5/6 divider lol) Worth a shot anyhow.

I missed a few of the things I had done. Vcore has been as high as 1.65, LDT 1.4, and up to 1.6 on chipset. I tried quite a few combo's of MA/RP.

 

What's killing me is at 11 X 288 I can pretty much change anything and not affect stability, but bump it to 289 and the problems begin. usually I can do a little tuning and make some progress but this just stops and won't give you a hint either way..

 

Edit.. I do have a CFX3200 arriving tomorrow and another expert on the way so I will give them a shot with the CPU as well.

Yeah it does look like u tried just about everything so hopefully one of the new board's will make a difference. I still gotta build another rig for my spare opty but gotta save some money up first.

I way overran my computer budget for this month. Had to pull a little out of savings to cover it. I'll skimp next month. Maybe just get a 3000 Venice or something.

Money goes quick when computer's are involved but when u see a good deal u have to grab it or end up regretting it later. That's how I ended up with this opty, Found a great deal on them and my buddy was still using a 3200 winchester so I was gonna order him one and then thought about how good a deal it was and grabbed me one too. Damn am I ever glad I did 2900 was the max on my old opty, not that it was to bad or anything.:)

Playing BF2 @ 1600 X 1200 with 7800GT SLI, I get a difference in average framerate of 7 FPS from stock to 3g.
