I've tested the OCZ and they are only good to 467MHz, although haven't tested on this board.

I'm getting so frustrated with this inability to flash the bios. I've tried numerous ways...different flash utilities using FDD and USB.

EDIT: I finally got it to work using afudos226 flash utility, and now with the newest bios 0701 I still cannot use the 183 divider.

When are you going to get to real benching? Like games and time oriented tasks? I understand the importance of 06, it's helping you understand the synergy of the system right now, but I'm really looking forward to real world results.

I haven't really had much time to race yet because I've been so involved in getting the rig up and running, and fully overclocked in every way possible, on a short schedule. I have to leave for Washington, DC in 12 hours, so I'll try to do some real world benches for you next weekend. I can tell you that GTR2 is much better, as I raced a little yesterday. I haven't overclocked the GPU's yet and I only have 1 crossfire bridge right now.



And Blitz thanks again man! I decided to test the DDR400 OCZ Platinum @ DDR500 w/ 3-3-2-8-1T and they passed memtest. I'm very happy. I know I tried loosening the timings when I tested them before, but on a lesser board.
I'm going to go run 3dmark06 again and see if it's any better @ 3000MHz and DDR500. I'll be BACH.

EDIT: hmmmm...for some reason the score went down 700 points(11,011). The cpu score was slightly better, but the first 2 scores were much lower. any ideas? I'll check to make sure nothing is running. Can I use AMD fusion for gaming to run 3dmark?

UPDATE: I had Adobe Reader checked in the startup tab in task manager. I unchecked it, rebooted, retested and get 11,793 points. That's the best yet. Sweet!!!!

UPDATE: Hey this looks a little better doesn't it? I wonder does the memory controller work harder when using a divider and therefore get hotter when using a divider. It's really not that much cooler in here today to change the laod temps by 10c.

S&M is also very background tasks dependent. Between running it normally and running it with Aero turned off and my systray cleared can change temperatures as much as 10º C under maximum load. While you might not like the look of it, the best power will occur when you remove your wallpaper (leaving a plain color), keeping desktop icons to a limited number, if any, and using "Windows Classic" as your theme. That is, make your Windows NT 5.2/6.0/6.1 (XP/Vista/7) look like Windows 4.0/4.1/4.2/5.0 (95/98/Me/2000).

I put the side cover on and load temps went up 3c. I was only running core temp during s&m and not even core temp when running 3dmark.
It's cool enough for me, I'll keep the eye candy on.

What do you think about the memory controller working harder and causing more heat when using a divider?

It is possible. And if your temperature goes up when the door goes ON, I would check your case air flow. If anything, temperatures should go up when the door comes OFF because the air flow carefully considered is now disrupted by the open door.

I knew you were going to say that.........It's not perfect yet, but I haven't had time to do any case modding. I intend to install a side intake next to the VGAs and an exhaust fan on the back wall above the motherboard. This case is very large.

Two schools of thought with custom fans: get the largest fan possible (like a 240-300mm) to provide the maximum amount of air with the minimum amount of noise. This is what is espoused by most case manufacturers today. Or the alternative school I formulated after repeatedly cleaning the dust out of my rig: get multiple 120mm fans with washible filters to keep the dust away from the internal parts in the first place. Note, however, that these fans WILL be louder under normal operation. If I could do it again, however, I likely would not have bought the Armor I did with the side fan; that dust is terrible.

That is on air? If so, that is a ridiculous overclock. How cold was it out that day?
