DRAM Frequency = 1305 (should I lower it or should I leave it in this range?)
Core Voltage : 1.47V (CPUz reported)
Do you think I should go up and feed more voltage? By the way, CPUz voltage and core voltage in BIOS is has different values. should I follow the voltage reported on CPUz.
I remembered it was already set to 1.50V in BIOS? Am I still in the safe range? confused.gif

Just tried this, ran into a BSOD rightaway after running LinX for 1 minute.... I just raised the voltage again

CPUz = 1.53

Any suggestions? I'll try running LinX using this voltage and see it's stable..

What did you try? NB at 9x?

This is what i had earlier...

245 x 15 = 3.67 MHz
cpu nb x 8 = 1960 MGHz
DRAM Frequency = 1305
Core Voltage : 1.53V (CPUz reported)

Should I go with nb x9? how about the DRAM frequency, should i lower it? can I stick with the core voltage?

I'm sorry, too many question..rolleyes.gif things are just getting started with me trying to find out how far this baby can go..

easy there, cowboy biggrin.gif He's already getting BSODs.

CarreoJ - do you get the BSOD with CPU/NB 8x or 9x?
You shouldn't need 1.55v for 3.67Ghz (and yes, that's Ghz, not Mhz smile.gif )

I had a BSOD when i tried CPU/NB 8x....haven't tried 9x yet...

hmm...so what do you think about the voltage? 1.53V good enough? I mean I can log on to windows without any issues.

Nah, something's wrong here. What timings does CPUz report for your RAM? Should be in the Memory tab.

Seems like it's not stable with CPU/NB 9x, ran into a BSOD a few seconds after firing up Linx.

Open cpuz and look under the memory tab. What timings does it say?

hmm...it's 8-8-8-20-27-1T ... I have a feeling this has something to do with the RAM settings...which I'm not well versed..confused.gif
