I think it was back in the Athlon64 days people raved about having a 1T command rate yielded a small gain over 2T.

I have not kept up with the performance difference since then.

Since someone mentioned the 1t vs 2t I have switched over to 1t; I believe it has made a difference but I would be lying to you if I said that it has for sure since I have adjusted a few other settings (turned off Virtualization as someone suggested, and raised the multiplier) to keep pushing Sheldon (my rig). Currently I'm running 4.44ghz and stable!=D

Once again, thank you all for your suggestions and advice.

How about AHCI mode for the HDD's.

That should give you a little as well.

Just be carefull, as windows is a little tricky to switch from IDE to AHCI mode.

I'd like to thank everyone who has contributed to this thread whether it's a simple comment or a suggestion. I have already learned quite a few new things in matters of optimal settings (for performance) for your computer which have lead to Sheldon shining brighter than ever! He's running strong at 4.45MHz!
(CPU-Z)
He also boots up A LOT quicker which I am VERY pleased with (I went into the Control Panel and manually shut off a couple of processes and apps that started on boot). Below is a quick pick w/ Wisecare365 Bootup Booster (a program which I have used for the past several months and am quite impressed with, does everything you need for maintenance and much more which I highly recommend!) showing a boot time of 20seconds! Definitely a new record for us, I was hitting high 50s and low 60s prior to this thread. Thanks again guys:thumb: and keep posting!typer.gif

Good Stuff! photo desktopQuickload_zpsda5496e9.jpg

Switched over to AHCI and like the message above says, thank you for your input because prior to the switch over from IDE to AHCI, I hit 25second bootup, post AHCI switch, I hit the 20seconds! Thanks for your advice, surely helped out!
Btw guys, if you have your HDD set to IDE rather than AHCI (if the HDD can support it) I recommend switching over to it as it offers some SATA functionality over the IDE and on top of this, provides a performance gain!applaud.gif
I personally looked into it and found out that if your current HDD is set to IDE and you have an active OS installed, you'll have to go through the Registry and edit a couple of settings prior to switching the BIOS setting of IDE to AHCI or it is possible you will be affected by errors and BSOD! I used the attached guide (I scrolled down to the Let Me Fix It Myself section of the guide) to help me with the Windows Registry setting change AS CHANGES IN THE REGISTRY NEED TO BE SCRUTINIZED because of the fragile environment. Happy tweaking!cheers.gif

I've looked over your bios settings.


To futher increase stability I suggest pulling down HT clock under or = to stock clock, it'll not yeild any performance difference if it was 1600 or 3600 MHz, only instability

To increase performance down CPU to 4-4.2, rise NB clock to max stable then find max CPU after. This will grant you a LOT of memory performance and that counts a lot in gaming performance and overall windows experience

You can easy set NB and HT +0.1v up, I suggest running NB at 1.25v, do 1.2 first if you wanna be more then safe. Most of the AMD OC motherboards have np running 1.3-1.4v NB. I run my NB at 1.275v @ 2800 MHz, only gain 70-100 MHz at 1.4v + a butt load of heat

I'm still seaching for the post you made with your CPU temps, because you've only +0.1v at CPU with a sealed loop cooler?? The max operating temp is what 72c for trinity??

Edit: Oh i see your memory is only at 1.55v, rise to 1.65v all regular size modules can run that, even without the "heatspreader" or what ever they call em.

There i've just handed you a plenty of headroom to go OC crazy, finding the best clocks with these new voltages setting biggrin.gif

so sad to see you have "Corsair Vengeance 1600 MHz CL9" regular mainstream stuff in a otherwise pretty intense rig.

Suggestion to next upgrade DDR3 1866 MHz CL8 are around 25-30% faster (in actual performance test) and will yeild around 12-14% higher fps.

CT1 is overrated! the post you made about it only was 1-2% faster is true! Tested it myself, at several diffident speeds. To max out CPU/memory/HT clock i suggest you reset it to CT2 for stability

I use OCCT to test with, best program to check for errors!!! Test for error i both small and large data set. If the tests run (sperately) error free for 1 hour you're clock is stable, two 12 hour tests = fully/100% stable. OCCT is also the best program i know off to track realtime sensor values, it'll even show minor glitches, glitches so smal the "other programs" miss em.
