eh... whats with the post necromancy... that specific topic kinda needs to stay dead...its for the good of the thread...
and what is it with people using odd ram configs... 4-8-16-32-64-128, no clue why someone would try 6 or 12 :/
eh.. stick with 16awg the lower the number the thicker and bigger the wire gauge. the thicker and bigger the wire the more power and amperage it can carry, you could be setting yourself up for another burn out dropping an AWGya mean these?
There are intricacies about this set up. CHVFZ its hard to take settings from this board and expect them to work on any other... even the saber kitty has trouble replicating settings and results when you've got a CHVFz opened up.
with these FX chip is not always a more is better.. (not everything is vcore related LMAO ) there is alot of balance to be had.
ALSO, something Sgt. bilko knows about as well is the Two graphics card physic buff
I wasn't running SLI as it was a 780 ti + 680 but i've noticed when using two card, weather or not both are used, cpu based scores increase.
When I rerun with one card i doubt i would break 10250 physics.
Getting back to the Balance aspect. Memory speed and Cpu/nb kinda go hand in hand.
there was a reason i dropped 200mhz off my cpu/nb from my 24/7 oc, also there was also a reason i dropped 400mhz on my ram.
Firestrike doesn't care for fast ram, it want low latency ram. 3DM11 I'd leave it where it was. it likes faster ram.
In my experiance, I don't see the point of going over 2700mhz on the cpu/nb unless you are trying to nail much higher frequencies like 2600+mhz on ram.
considering i need pretty much 1.4volts in bios for my cpu to run 2700mhz and 2400mhz found it was an exponential scale after that(think vcore voltwall)
if you are running @ 2000mhz ram like i was you don't need much higher then stock to achieve good scores. 2500mhz works well with 2000mhz ram.
most of these timing were actually Auto'd as i dind't care to tweak them from my 24/7 2400mhz ram.
All i did was took my 24/7 overclock tweaked a few things for different values hit the multi a few times and just kept raising vcore.
Also taking into account each chip is different, my chip doesn't want to do much more then 4.65 full stable (at-least under my cooling),
