Show us all of your settings please, I would love to review them.

Doesn't Small FFT = the most CPU intensive?


Also, hit 3GHz today stable enough to run benchmarks, turned it back down cuz while it was stable with the OCZ 1GB kit at 600MHz 2.5-4-4-10-1T, I popped my 2GB kit in and set it to 3-4-3-8-1T (like I always run them) and it was unstable.


So I'm back at 2.9GHz... and lemme see if I can remember my settings off the top of my head.


Genie BIOS Settings:


FSB Bus Frequency - 200

LDT/FSB Frequency Ratio - 4.0

CPU/FSB Frequency Ratio - 14.5x

PCI eXpress Frequency - 100Mhz


CPU VID StartUp Value - StartUp


CPU VID Control - 1.45v

CPU VID Special Control - Auto

LDT Voltage Control - 1.20v

Chip Set Voltage Control - 1.52v

DRAM Voltage Control - 2.80v


DRAM Configuration Settings:


DRAM Frequency Set - 250=RAM/FSB:05/04

Command Per Clock (CPC) - Enable

CAS Latency Control (Tcl) - 3.0

RAS# to CAS# delay (Trcd) - 04 Bus Clocks

Min RAS# active time (Tras) - 08 Bus Clocks

Row precharge time (Trp) - 03 Bus Clocks

Row Cycle time (Trc) - 11 Bus Clocks

Row refresh cyc time (Trfc) - Auto

Row to Row delay (Trrd) - 02 Bus Clocks

Write recovery time (Twr) - 02 Bus Clocks

Write to Read delay (Twtr) - 02 Bus Clocks

Read to Write delay (Trwt) - 03 Bus Clocks

Refresh Period (Tref) - 3120 Cycles

Write CAS Latency (Twcl) - Auto

DRAM Bank Interleave - Enabled


DQS Skew Control - Auto

DQS Skew Value - 0

DRAM Drive Strength - Auto

DRAM Data Drive Strength - Auto

Max Async Latency - 6.0

DRAM Response Time - Fast

Read Preamble Time - 4.5

IdleCycle Limit - 256 Cycles

Dynamic Counter - Disable

R/W Queue Bypass - 16 x

Bypass Max - 07 x

32 Byte Granularity - Disable(4 Bursts)


Think that's right.


Those settings give me ... ::finds all the screen captures::






















FEAR on Maximum/Maximum:




FEAR on Maximum/Maximum @ 1600x1200:




That was all run with no rebooting, same exact settings as listed above, and the Prime95 for 1 hour was run after that, during which never saw above 43C.


Now if that ain't stable enough for cosure, I don't know what is ;)


And yes I'm runnin' those exact settings right now as we speak, 24/7 lol well, whenever I'm not testing out higher OCs.

Well I've had no further luck hitting 3GHz stable, I got it semi stable but not... y'know, stable stable.


However I'm now runnin' 2.9GHz with my ram at 3-3-3-8-1T. It's risen my scores a weebit in benchmarks, kinda nice to see that decent of an improvement from upping the voltage on the RAM a bit and changing one number LOL


I'm now gettin' 15510 in 05, 9849 in 06 and 116399 in AM3. Not too shabby for everyday settings.

I still hate dual prime but have learned my lesson that no dual prime custom settings = BSoD. I'm still pissed off at my rig because it won't hit 3.0Ghz either.


I've got to 332x9=2989 MHz on 1.58Vcore now.... in my gut I KNOW that's way too much voltage for the speed but I'm just taking it out of the picture so I can prove it's my FSB limiting me. (I've got dual prime at about 40 minutes as we speak... if it goes past 7 hours I'll call it stable and shoot for 334x9... again I know it'll fail.) OOP, it just failed at 43 minutes... just like it does with 334x9. I'm going to put it at x8 and see what happens.


ANYHOW... I think you just need to give it 1.475 vcore to make it stable
