Hi! Could you post screenshot from your BIOS from DRAM Driving section (or whatever it is called wink.gif

I changed my memory settings to 7-8-7-22-36 1T 1600 MHz (90ns) with 1.56 Dimm Voltage set in BIOS. I have tried to change this for 7-7-7-20-27 1T as my previous Patriots II Vipers PC-12800 could do without any problem but my attempt was a failure.
Then tried to change CPU/NB V to 1.25 V (and 1.30) and Dimm V to 1.65 V without any luck frown.gif Is it really impossible for ram that should run with speeds 2000 MHz to run with those timings? How much could I bump up the DIMM V ? 1.7 V would be safe enough for everyday use?

Thanks for your info! I checked them but as for me they are extremely expensive though I would like to have a few of them in my rig wink.gif
As for fans I have 2 of these Scythe SY1225SL12SH Slip Stream fans installed. They are a little bit noisy but I've been using them for 2 years now without any problems (and noise doesn't disturb me because almost all the time I wear my headphones on wink.gif

Yea, i've pretty much followed the standard procedure ht-2000 NB-2800 CPU/NB 1.25v ohh and dissabled power saving features (not that it really benefited my OC) One thing im a little curious about is the CPU voltage frequency, should i whack it up full or leave it on auto?
Running 203x19.5 at 1.43v just to overclock the ram a little for the time being, I'll continue messing round with it myself but let me know if you figure out how to get a little higher clockspeed without anymore volts!

BTW Latest 1208

I managed to succesfully reach 4.0 GHz with Northbridge Clock 3.0 GHz but it consumes massive amount of power and requires very high voltage.
The latest quite stable setting is this:

700

Anyway, I am going to change my Bios rev. for this 705 modded Bios and then give my CPU a try wink.gif

Let me know how 705 goes and what sort of temps your getting full load prime95 at 4ghz.

My latest achievement wink.gif

http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2401388

700 280

2401388.png

BIOS:

CPU V = 1.475 V
CPU/NB V = 1.375 V
DRAM V = 1.65625 V
NB V = 1.175 V

CPU LLC = UltraHigh
CPU/NB LLC = Extreme
CPU C.C. = 130 %
CPU/NB C.C. = 120 %
CPU Power P.C. = Standard


Massive amount of heat and according to Aida Memory Benchmark the results aren't very satisfactionary :/

I got a way better results running this Thuban on my MSI 790FX-GD70 mobo but over there I had 2 cores disabled, and actually ... I really don't know if it is worth bumping up all those voltages to have 4GHz, 6 cores, power "eater" computer. With 4 cores it would be a lot quieter, cooler and cheaper and in gaming ... will I see big difference? I don't think so.

I am still on 1208 rev. As for me I actually use IntelBurnTest because I personally find it stresses my CPU much more than Prime95. Under full load it is around 5*C hotter than in Prime95. Eventually I will run Prime to test my memory and overall stability. In IBT it was only 10 passes, so around 40 min. Not to much if you want to say is rock stable. I will keep you posted smile.gif

I'm just gonna run the 6 cores at about 3.9 wuth cool and quiet on, i play BF3 and GTAIV both games appear to make use of the hex core and frame rates are a little better. GTA V will be out soon too and im sure it will benefit from the 2 extra cores. Theres no point having 6 and not using them unless your in dire need of an extra 200mhz or so for single threaded apps.
Unless 705 makes a difference it looks like 203x19.5 (3950mhz) @ 1.43v NB-2800 is the most sensible 24/7 setting for me to leave it on. I'd rather be sitting nice and cool at 52 degrees than pissing away electricity and running on the ragged edge all the time anyways.

I'm still having an issue with the timing on the system clock, which is falling behind about a minute-and-a-half every 24hrs. I've tried several different batteries, just to make sure that it wasn't a battery issue. The only thing resembling a complete answer I can get from ASUS support is "It's not supposed to do that", which is a really big help to me and all involved.

Another thing is that the AI Suite OSD will periodically warn me about MB temps dropping to -(max value)*C, and that the +12V voltage is dropping to 3V or 4V (rounded).

Mine will give me the odd warning if i have HW monitor/ coretemp or other monitoring software running at the same time as AI suite.... pretty sure its not anything to worry about.
