Computer not running up to par (Phenom 955 BE) - Page 2

post #11 of 27

VRM cooling is also necessary before you can safely overclock this chip...

Download and run LinX to see your load temps.

The memory portion of this looks way wrong to me. Does your motherboard not support DDR3-1600 without overclocking? That last CPU-Z picture shows your memory running @ 671mhz, yet you appear to be overclocking just using the multiplier. If your just going to increase the multiplier- try running your memory at full speed. (Set to DDR3-1600, should show 800mhz in CPU-Z). Also- any reason why it shows the memory running SINGLE channel instead of DUAL channel, do you really have one 8gb stick?

I think you can dual channel your memory on a 32-bit OS. GigaByte boards dual channel slots are 1 and 3 or 2 and 4.

386

I switched from 3 and 4 to 2 and 4 (just had enough room to get the 2nd slot in with my heatsink there) and now I am running dual.

I also noticed an improvement in my boot time.

Well according to 3dmark link, your graphics card is underperforming. Maybe some driver issue? I think thats the original 3dmark11 benchmark, you should re-run it since its still showing your old ram settings and see if anything improves.

Also one more thing about the memory - Good job on getting 800mhz and Dual channel but CL11 is pretty bad for DDR3-1600, is that the timings its autodetecting? If you can lookup exactly what memory your using it might help- but I would guess it's probably CL9 (or even better).
