Ultra-D 3000+ Venice - Advice for Stability?

Recommended Posts

Guest obvious

My RAM maxes out at 280Mhz (memtest stable overnight) with the settings in Rgone's guide below (I was amazed it went so high - is this particularly good?)

 

At 280*9 (2520Mhz) I get occasional BSOD's and prime95 fails quite quickly (if it doesn't lock up first)

 

9*278 hits the magic 2.5GHz and is prime stable for around an hour before getting rounding errors.

 

Temps hit a max of 51C during torture test (RAM,CPU and Chipset)

 

It seems that the CPU and RAM are very closely matched but the CPU is topping out first.

 

Any recommendations on how to get a bit more stability?

i would first try to run the ram at stock or lower and find max cpu ALONE.

Use dividers for that.

 

Whats your Cpu voltage ??

 

have a look at my sig for hint... at least for the cpu..

Updated Sig

 

Will test CPU with dividers

 

Thanks - Any more suggestions? :)

 

BTW, I don't have a spare floppy power connector attached to the motherboard.

:S

 

When setting various dividers windows BSOD's with either IRQL or PFN-LIST-CORRUPT errors.

 

Windows is fine at 1:1

 

:confused:

ok, seeing as I cant seem to get dividers working I'm back to my original setup. Any advice would be appreciated.

You say you dunt have any spare floppy connector ???

 

obviously you have power issue, DFI Says to connect all four to the Board.

 

Might be your problem.

You're right of course. Just ordered one. Never known a board with so many extra power connectors :O

Yep, my Ultra-D had problems until I hooked up the FDD 4 pin. Also, don't forget to bump down your LDT in BIOS to like 2.5 or 3 and try running your RAM at 3-4-4-10 with >3.0v just to make sure it's relaxed enough if you don't have enough time to mess with finding max cpu and separately (recommended)...
