AMD64 3000+ Detect array....

Recommended Posts

What happens when you run 225x10? Can you go higher than 225 on FSB/HTTx10 multi and boot? Are you wanting to get maximum Ghz speed or a balance of Ghz and memory bandwith?

I can run 225x10 but that is about the limit.................I'm wanting to find max GHz over memory bandwidth as my memory really isnt up to the job

Take a screen shot of "memory" in cpuz and post it. Just curious if the 9:10 divider is actually working.

 

I'm at work at the moment but will get a screen shot tonight. It does appear to be working as I cant boot if the memory is set to 1:1

Defintely sounds like a memory problem. There are not very people that haven't been able to oc a 3000 at least to 2.3 or 2.4 if things are set correctly. But, then again you could just be unlucky. :( Let's hope not! ;)

Memory is just budget stuff...............Nanya Tech PC3200 nothing fancy

 

Currently running 250 x 9 with HTT 3

 

Memory divider set to 9:10 and timings 3 3 8 3

 

did you try to relax these timings yet? like i said before, this is what i did to fix the exact same problem you're having. well, same symptom, anyway. try changing 3/3/8/3 to 3/4/8/3 or 3/4/8/4. you may also consider dropping the 8 to 10 as that value is widely regarding as being the best for nforce3.

 

also, just to figure out the FSB ceiling of your CPU, why not set the memory divider to 4:5? then you should be more easily able to determine how high your cpu can go. when you do, then go back and slowly try to work your RAM up to 1:1. just a thought.

try moving your SATA's on 1 and 2 instead of 3 and 4. I had mine on 3 before and I switched it to 1, now the detecting array doesnt appear as much when playing around with settings.

Excellent suggestion. :)

Ok..........I had another go last night and basically I cant get it stable with 230 x 10. Using relaxed memory timimgs help but its still not Prime95 stable.

 

I've even tried the lowest memory divider but doesnt help :( so I cant really find the CPU ceiling. I also notice that when I'm using the 9:10 divider, CPUZ does not recognise the speed??

 

I left it last night at 250 x 9 with a memory divider of 9:10 with 3 3 8 3...........this is Prime stable. BUT the moment I try to get past 250 (eg 252) its not at all stable :(

 

With the current setup what SuperPi 1M is respectable? I currently get 40s. And I get about 15,000 in 3DMark01 with the old Ti4600

 

Thanks all

I hate to say it, but you may have found your max cpu speed. Although some 3000s hit 2.4-2.5, there are some out there that will barely get 2.2. It is basically the luck of the draw if you get that good overclocker or not.

did u raise the chipset voltage to 1.7V? i had to do that to get 260 stable.

 

that when I'm using the 9:10 divider, CPUZ does not recognise the speed??

 

happened to me too- wouldn't worry about it.

 

I currently get 40s. And I get about 15,000 in 3DMark01 with the old Ti4600

 

dunno about superpi but that 3dmark01 score is pretty good with a ti4600. i bet if you threw a 6800gt in there, i bet it would go up at least 10K points.
