2) tighten your RAM timings - you should experiment with that (what is your DIMM Voltage?)
3) and the current one isn't nice? ;> biggrin.gif

well... to tighten the timings, i suppose that i have to add a little more voltage to my rams, am i right? i get kinda jealous when i see someone with a higher score than me, using some value ram sticks..

to test stability, is there another program (i want to avoid prime95) to test it?

To test stability I use Intel Burn Test 2.53. Just be careful because it can make your CPU 10*C hotter during test than Prime 95, so you should have a decent cooling. Run it on Very High settings. It doesn't stress memory the way Prime95 do but it is a lot quicker.

To check stability of your Ram after tunning I use quite simple and Free software MemTest.
In your FX you've got 8 cores so run 8 instances of this software (in full version there is no such limitation I assume). Now you just check how much ram you've got free. Let's say you've got 8 GB (you can check it in your windows Task Manager --> Performance --> Resource Monitor) then in each instance of memtest you put a value that you'll get from this equation:

Free RAM/no. of cores. Let's say you would have 7GB of free ram, so you have to input in each dialog box 875 MB. Then you start all of these instances and wait after it makes 2 passes (200%). That usually indicates that your RAM settings are fine and stable and it's less time consuming than running Prime for 12 hours or more.

Yeah, I'm on 0705 with my 1100T and every time I update I have stability issues and always end up going back to 0705. Tempting though!

i did use 901 for a bit, but had problems-so i went back to 813.
i will wait for someone else and then i might give it a shot.

Just doing an upgrade from my CHIVE to Sabertooth 990FX and flashed to the latest BIOS first thing. Maybe it would have been a better idea to run with the BIOS that came on the board first, as it is not liking me trying to get it to 4.8GHz like my FX-8150 was on the CHIVE motherboard.

I think I'll do some reading in this thread to see if I'm missing something important.
