OCZ Value VX Thread

I'd like to know what others have their Value VX running at and with what settings. Specifically part # OCZ4001024WV3DC-K

 

I'm currently running at [email protected] Its stable for the most part, but prime95 torture test crashes the machine within 45 minutes usually at any speed above 215mhz.

I have the PC3200 VX, running on mostly auto settings, expect the important and not so confusing ones that make up the first chunck of memory settings. I have managed to get 262mhz at 1.5-2-2 timings. Note that I am only using 1 stick because the other died, and it takes 3.7v to get it stable at 262mhz. 257mhz is stable at 3.5v though, and 258mhz only gets 2 errors a pass at 3.5v.

 

I'll check my other settings, but some of your settings seem a bit too tight to run very well.

 

(note that the other stick died from unrelated reasons, I still had it running at 2.6v when it died).

u shoudl change those to Auto and see

 

DQS Skew Control.....................Decrease Skew

Max Async Latency....................6ns

Read Preamble Time...................5ns

 

and change this to 8 or 7 since AMd65 likes them more than 5

Min RAS active time (tRAS)...........5

 

and which bios r u sing and in which dimms have u installed them ?

BIOS 623-3 (official dfi) orange slots.

Well I switched to the 623-2 bios, and I also read that the yellow slots are better for high voltage memory? Can anyone confirm that? Anyway I also switched to the yellow slots at the same time I flashed the new bios. I'm now 12hours prime95 stable at 230mhz at 2-2-2-6 and 3.4v with most of everything else on auto so either the yellow slots or the 623-2 bios helped out quite a bit. I think it was both though, I'm pretty sure that with the 623-3 bios the yellow slots wouldn't work for me. I'm going to see how high I can get on 3.4v, I'll let you guys know.
