Was running rig at 355x9 1:1 3-3-3-8

Tryed tweaking those settings and running at 450x7 1:1 5-5-5-15. Was prime stable, and running in x16 mode, but was getting about 350fps in ATi tool instead of 450-500 at 355x9.

Tryed bumping vDimm a little and tightening timings to 4-4-4-12 and it went back to x1 mode with about 300fps in ATi tool.

So whilst it may show it running in x16 mode, its still messing something up and giving degraded performance.

Back to good old 355x9.

EDIT: Read a bit more of that thread, apparently the board is "picky" about voltages, and if they are a bit too high or low, it will go ape **** and go to x1. Seems this is a common side effect which can be caused by many different things.

When i tightened the timings i upped the vDimm, so im guessing thats why the board freaked out and switched to x1.
