post #201 of 2790
I'm back with those RAM benches for ya...had to tweak stuff to get it to 1600, so I have 1500 with everything else all equal vs 1800, and the 1600 with diff settings (it performed horribly)... also included my highest bench that's stable so far. Great sticks! Timings are all auto and haven't messed with them yet to improve things...

1500

334

1600

334

1800

335

highest I could get pushing these was 1920...

334

There ya go.

In other news, having some stability issues now and I feel like my voltages are higher than I should need them, so I'm not sure what to do next. I just feel like 1.4 vCore is a lot for a sub-4.0Ghz OC...maybe I'm just jelly of all the ridiculously low voltage ppl in this thread...I see lots of mid 1.3v high OCs even on 6 core...mine is only stable at stock clocks with 6 cores at like 1.35, and it is a power hungry beast baast that...any suggestions?

Absolutely fantastic RAMs. Thanks for tests. You must have good cooling over them.

I will definitely want get an exact model of those Patriots. However, it could be the chip and motherboard as well. I bet you can raise those results by playing with the timings.

My Kingstons do not like going past 1700.

Here's mine:

User Name: creisti86
CPU: AMD X4 960T Zosma
24/7 OC: X4 3819Mhz @ 1.42v
Max OC: X4 4000Mhz @ 1.45v
Unlockable: No

I was kind of dissapointed for not unlocking, but I still think it's a good cpu. I don't know if the max OC was fully stable, i just wanted to hit 4Ghz, and didn't want to put too much voltage in it. I could not achieve any overclock for NB and HT Link, left it at almost default 2010 (201bus, x10 multi), although I could achieve something like 2400 or 2600 with an 555 I got on the same board, but with this one, it was unstable even at 2200. Another thing I liked was that it was practically at least 5-7C cooler in full load than my 555 it replaced, though it could be because of better heatsink/thermal paste mounting.

it could be your motherboard. if you do not have some kind of heatsink on your vrms - it is not a very good idea to overclock and/or unlock.

i am not saying you need to buy a new one. i got a used mobo that i bought here in ocn but if you do plan on buying a mobo you might want look at the 990 series. but then again, if you are starting from scratch you might as well go with an i5 SB or wait for ivy - imo.

I put some small heatsinks on the VRMs, they don't get that hot, just a little warm. Anyway, I know I don't have such a good motherboard, but for now i think it will do. can't see a reason to upgrade as long as it is functional. Maybe I could get another 200Mhz from this CPU on a good MB, but I think it's just not worth it, I'll wait until newer, better technologies come around and I'll need to change both the motherboard and CPU, and then see what's on the market then. Right now i'm waiting for a HD 7000 series to get fully released and get some good model (7890?).

Kylezo,

if that is your idle temp, it is a bit on the high side. your cooler might be limiting your chip.

try lowering your nb to 2700. and can your rams take 1.63-1.65v? i do not know their designed spec. set the ram voltage at the designed spec. it might help. but really your temps are high.

absolutely not worth it, you are right. the heatsinks will do the job. thumb.gif

That is a very serious overclock, mind telling me exactly what your using? What cooler, and i see 1.5 voltage for cpu is that a little high for the chip to handle? Please I would love to know how you got this, I'm gonna try to build mine this weekend.

this is what I am using . . .

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835185166

with two more 120mm fans at both ends.

but can't recommend it because it is hard as hell to install. might be easier if the mobo is off the case like when building your rig the first time. but once installed - that's it.

Redwoodz and Schmuckley reached higher clocks than mine. Those clocks are just for show not 24/7.

At 6 cores, 4.0GHz is Prime stable but my fans are at their highest speed.
4GHz/1.42v is ideal for 6 cores and 4GHz/1.4v for 4 cores.

not bad for $130 with $15 rebate.thumb.gif

Well, it's my CPU temp, but not my core temp. Idle is around 28-30C depending on my OC and load is usually 55-60 (again depending). At 28C core, CPU temp shows ~42. The temps even out a bit as it climbs as per AMD design. I had the ram overvolted a tiny bit because I was overclocking it pretty dramatically (1600 > 1920) but I'll take your advice on that and the NB freq.

Here's a link to that ram btw, I got it for $25 bucks on sale ^_^ :
