CPU speed in Relation to RAM speeds... - Page 3

Okay, so stay away fropm the nforce4 series, and take on the 975 or so? Gotcha. I will heed the advice regarding the edit function as well. Thank you for the reminder, I hope to keep the threads cleaner.

This particular board is cert'd for C2D cpu's...so it already would have a fsb higher than 250.
post #23 of 27
Check my cpuZ validation...if your looking for high fsb clocks get a P5W or a P5B. From the "research&destroy" I have been doing my P5B has an approximate fsb cap around 500mhz, at least with my current PSU and RAM that is.

yeah... but when yuo overclock you start at the base FSB, and he seems to be hitting a wall...

Asus P5B or P5W DH Deluxe are your choices. If you want dual graphics, get the P5W DH Deluxe, which supports Crossfire officially, and will run SLI with modded drivers.

EDIT: and for both of you, on the bottom right of a post you make yourself, you'll see an EDIT and a QUOTE button. Please hit the edit button if you want to add to a post, and you're the last poster in a thread. That keeps threads cleaner Thanks again.

confused now. Buying a lighter to set this thing on fire... Intel boards are difficult to overclock with,correct? because this chip I had originally equipped with a 945gnt, but I suppose that still would have hindered the fsb speeds?...

Ok. There is a different between Intel Branded motherboards (which overclock like crap, if at all usually), and motherboards with the Intel chipset. If your board was an Intel brand, then no OC would have been possible.

Currently, motherboards with the Intel P965 Express chipsets are the best overclocking boards for Intel LGA775 CPUs. They have been known to hit an FSB of 500MHz, esp. with Core 2 Duo CPUs. Examples are the Asus P5B Deluxe for $149.99 and the Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 for $146.99 However, these boards don't support dual graphics, although the P5B can do so with modded drivers, but with bandwidths of x16, x4.

Second best in the Intel LGA 775 overclocking arena are the boards with the Intel 975X chipset. Here Asus currently rules, but ABIT has a new, promising board. The top contenders are the Asus P5W DH Deluxe for $249.99 and the Asus P5W64 WS for $309.99(!!). The ABIT AW9D-MAX for $239.99 looks promising, but only has one PCI slot which will be useless when using dual video cards. These boards support Crossfire by default, but can run SLI with modded drivers (all in x8, x8 mode).

Now, if you're patient, DFI will come out with an ATI RD600 based motherboard. Here are some images: http://www.overclock.net/1289110-post20.html This chipset will feature dual x16, x16 PCI-E in Crossfire mode, and rumor has it overclocks well (this is the one I am waiting for...hence my lower-end 975 board). When it will come and how much? Don't know.... Might be worth waiting for and just hold on for now.

I'll try the 965, not too into graphics as far as sli, just got the sli board in case the bug bit me. I will take your suggestion to fry's and get what I need. I really appreciate all the help.

PS: tried the setup as far as 1066/800, idle temp at 27C and the full load at 32C, flipping cold for air, as far as I know... Super pi still sucks at 35 seconds. Systool stress test shows 11.28sec on the 1M stress test at 2 loops...
