Corsair XMS2 Twin 2x2048-6400 - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 
Well,

I took the vcore up to 1.65v, system booted into windows at 9x400=3600 MHz.
DDR2-800 for the ram at 2.25v 1:1 with timings at 5,5,5,12
TAT temps were 48c & 51c at idle.

At least I know that my system will handle that range, but will wait for water cooling to run 24-7.

You are not at 1.65 vCore...those boards have vDroop like you wouldnt believe you are really at 1.58 to 1.61. Which is fine if your going to use water and your temps dont go too high. The e6700 is more tolerant to voltage than others but it all depends on how long you want to use your chip. I am not one to judge because I dont keep chips very long and dont run them at excessive voltage EXCEPT for when im benching.

Ok all of that said lets play with some ram settings now that we have gotten you to 3.6.

Turn auto off and set your ram timings manually as follows:

4-4-4-12 ignore the other settings

Boot and try a SuperPi with your ram running at its stock speed of 800...I think you will be surprized at how fast this baby can go

After you finish benching set your oc to something more reasonable like 3.2 or so and try and keep you real vCore below 1.45 check CPUz for real vCore or you can try probe...

I just saw your screen shot ... take a look at your CPU voltage...not even close to 1.65..like i said horrible vDroop.
