Just finished my testing with my ram.
Timings are much much more important then frequency.
1333 to 1600 saw a good increase. (same timing)
1600 to 1866 saw smaller increase (same timings)
1866 to 2000 saw nearly no increase (same timings)
2000 to 2100 saw a decrease. (Had to go from 1T to 2T)
2100 to 2200 saw a decrease (^)
So dropped it back down to 1692 since that got me the best NB and HT overclock.
And worked on my timings. going from 9-11-9-27,1T to 8-9-8-27,1T made a massive difference to the ram tests and 0.08 in cinebench.
Running out of things to optermise. Had 2 new OCZ SSD's show up but both were DOA so now have to wait for replacement before I can change my OS to raid 0.
Good info, i personally use samsung 830 what ocz you running, there are quirky
I played around a bit with my oc, thrse chips are interesting, from what i have gatheref on the uarch is that bosting the single thread makes the biggest difference, any one with a high oc wanna confirm my hypothosis
I wonder if steamroller with the 2 prefetch per module corrects that
I see how vishera is what bd was supposed to be, is it safe to say you guys have found the bottle neck on the uarch yet
