I've mostly used stock timings for whatever speed its running.... that may be my problem.. who knows lol..

CPU-NB Multiplier.. biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

Still haven't tested much but 2750 is a no-go on mine.
3000 HT Link is easy.
CPU-NB Voltage at 1.300
HT-Link doesn't need much of a Voltage Bump.

I was able to reach 2670 on a Giga. 1.350 CPU-NB Volts

Yup.

He needs that for QuadFire. To boast his Physics capability.

Nonsense to go that high using less than 3 cards. The gain is minimal if there is.

Point is, 3000 HT Link is too easy to get. Even still, there's too little to be gained aside from the Mobo NB heating up quicker. biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

What if i downclock my ht and overclock the cpu what will hapen? Just curious.. Hehe.

Nothing. A slightly cooler NB maybe.

Besides, OC'ing the CPU is the main goal. That's why people advise to just use Multi. It's just for the CPU alone. Which will also give you the most performance increase.

Those who use a combination of the FSB and Multi wants to refine everything. RAM, CPU-NB, HT, even PCIe Clock. Just be extremely careful with the latter.

In my experience from a GIGA,

Multi - CPU OC, I cannot stabilize 4.8GHz on pure multi.
Combo - FSB of 253 X 19 = 4800 can be stabilized using slightly less voltage.

CPU-NB if dropped from stock of 2200 will give you larger latency esp in the memory. Too high, and you will have difficulty in stabilizing. Needs moar Volts as Mega say.


Just a note on these chips, FSB is directly linked to CPU-NB and HT. Not really a problem with saberkitty but some boards don't show the actual HT and CPU-NB clocks at the bios when doing FSB OC. Thus find it hard to stabilize them. And say, too much of a hassle to do.

And remember, HT can only be higher or equal to CPU-NB.

Edit: You can still OC cpu-nb and RAM via the multiplier. But the effect on RAM performance could still be less than using FSB to OC the CPU-NB.

ie. FSB 200, CPU-NB at 2600, Memory at 2133 CL9 will score lower on Memory Benchmarks than FSB of 267, CPU-NB of 2403, RAM at 2133 with same timings.

Just my experience though biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

Thank you so much. This is a big help for me speacialy the nb part. Now i know what thay do.. smile.gif my set up is
240bus
2400 nb
2600 on ht
19.5 multiplayer

So this is good to go?

How did you come to this conclusion, because if you were using their *software as in ASUS AI Suite II* it spits out random temp numbers on all things, it is VERY buggy*. if that is how you came to this conclusion this is the most likely scenario when they receive your board. They will stick in one stick of ram listed on their DRAM QVL list, and if it posts, send it right back, I know you probably like their software (IF that is how you came to this conclusion, but I call it bloatware, personal conclusion of course) and I would never trust ASUS AI Suite II. If this is the scenario, you basically sent them a good board for no reason at all other than some buggy piece of code that I heard was written by..well never mind, I am not here to say negative things, I do after all use their Asus Sabertooth 990fx R2.0 and their Asus GTX780-DC2OC-3GD5 and love them both. Perhaps next time you have such an issue you can contact one of us, even me if you would like, I will set my settings to allow IMs and add you as a friend as I can see you need some help and I am willing to offer it to you. If that is not the case, and you used something like a Unit-T M8990G with a thermocouple attached and you actually took the real temp of the PCIe-2 and it indeed was going bonkers then consider this post null and I will try to delete it. I apologize if I came of harsh, but I came across a few people that were ready to RMA because of ASUS AI Suite telling them their CPU temp was 81823838 C redface.gif Not even kidding.

You need to test them!! biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifObserve Aida scores. You want the best of things. More Bandwidth, Less Memory Latency.

Looks good on paper IMO. Just for you to prove. Also note that there have been reports that FSB has some holes.

example, if 269 is unstable or unbootable, try 275 while watching your CPU-NB not to go beyond 2700 or more. biggrin.gif

Again, AIDA64 to test your OC on the memory side.

Very true devil-smiley-019.gif

Report my RAM is at -265 degrees.. LOL negative 265 doh.gif

Yes im corently strestesting rightnow i dont know how to test the nb and the ram.. frown.gif im just makit it stable at prime95 can you guide me? Sory for my bad english.
