Newark Mobile Results/Thoughts - Please Post

Recommended Posts

A few guys are starting to get Newark Mobiles and they seem to be working great on the nF3 DFI UT.

 

Would all those that have bought one please post their results and thoughts?

 

Things I'd like to know are:

 

Which speed grade did you get (3400+, 3700+, etc)?

What did you upgrade from?

Have you had any problems, have any weird things happened?

Did it improve your RAM overclock?

Are strawberries the only berry with seeds on the outside?

What CPU speeds are you able to hit?

What cooling are you using?

Anything else you think is worth mentioning...

 

 

I'm thinking of buying one for sheets and giggles, but I want to know the hassle & money involved is worth it.

 

Cheers

Rabb

The strawberry, a member of the rose family, is the only fruit with seeds on the outside. There are approximately 200 seeds on every strawberry.

 

Sorry, the only one I can answer for you. LOL

I just got mine in the mail yesterday.

 

I got a 3700, and I'm upgrading from a DTR3200. I havent pushed it all the way yet, but so far I've gotten it to 255x11 @ 1.55v and it's been running prime95 since yesterday around 6pm EST without any freezes or errors. My cooling consists of a Danger Den TDX Block, Hydor L35 Pump, and Dual Heater Core with 2 120mm Panaflo Mediums. Temps are 29C idle, and 35C load.

 

The CPU was totally worth it. I had my DTR overclocked to 265x10 and it did 12010 points in the sandra CPU benchmark, the new cpu at stock speeds 200x12 managed 11159, thats only 50 points less than my previous cpu, which had 200mhz advantage and an extra 65mhz of FSB. I really feel the difference in performance.

 

I'm currently using oskar WU 10/15 bios but I'm gonna flash to the 4/15 betas today since they have something updated for Rev E CPU's. I'm gonna let the cpu burn in a few days and then I'm gonna go for the big 3, if it doesnt happen then I'll have to get a new PSU and try again. The voltages on my xconnect dropped a little since last week so I think it might be dying on me.

Which speed grade did you get (3400+, 3700+, etc)?

the only one that i believe is available at the time of writing, 3700+

 

What did you upgrade from?

3200+ clawhammer that topped out at 2.3ghz

 

Have you had any problems, have any weird things happened?

it's very picky with my ram.. especially the Max Async Latency. if i'm off by more than 1ns, i get a raid array screen and can't get into windows.

 

Did it improve your RAM overclock?

with two sticks in, yes, from ~235mhz to ~255mhz. one stick is still at 265mhz

 

Are strawberries the only berry with seeds on the outside?

raspberries!

 

What CPU speeds are you able to hit?

normally run at 2.7ghz with 1.45v

2.85ghz with 1.57v is stable

superpi 1m at 2.95ghz and 1.65v

 

What cooling are you using?

zalman cnps-7000a tweaked to deal with the lack of heatspreader :D

 

Anything else you think is worth mentioning...

my chip doesn't like >1.65v, i'm assuming because of temps with the air cooling.

also, i can't boot with 3 sticks in at 1T

I think so.

Hoping to do around 2.8-3.0 (RAM will probably max out around 275)

The RAM I'll be using with it is the Corsair XMS PC4000Pro... heard it won't go past around 275... but we'll see. :) I've also got 2x512mb of Geil Ultra Platinum PC4000, so I'll test with that too. Pick whichever is better. :nod:

i thought i'd bump this, bios 5/4 gives better ram support. i can now boot with ram in non-consecutive slots. haven't gotten around to testing 3 dimms though
