I have the same memory and that's my settings.Hope it help.
Thanks for the reply !
Thats probably the part that i don't understand.. Is clocking your memory down to 9xx essential to get a higher fsb on your cpu? If so, then i got some work to do since i never tried it, and always left my mem running at standard stock mhz, never lower than that...

Hi, Tekkah. My recommendation at your current FSB (333, right?) is to bring the memory down to 1:1 and then to clock from there. That would mean (assuming 333 FSB) to put memory at 667 (333.3*2). Start at stock timings, but because you have PC2-8500s, you can probably bench 1:1 at 3-3-3-9-1T. Check your read/write/copy speeds and then try again at 1000 RAM clock, which should be 3:2; you'll need to open up to probably 5-5-5-15-2T to begin with, but you might be able to squeeze it into 4-4-4-12-2T. Always try to tighten tRC as low as possible (CAS + tRAS + 1 is my guideline) and leave the other advanced timings at AUTO.

Totally off-topic, but I installed my X-Fi Platinum today! Photos in my sig. I'm going to attach one anyway for the fun of it. I did a case mod so my wondrous Sennheisers can be easily connected!

***EDIT: I'm not normally one for product stickers, but this one matched nicely with the gaping hole I created & I think "people" (I don't get visitors, but if I did) would understand better why my case is defaced... (hey, that rhymes!).

***EDIT 2: My case looks like Darth Vader now. I'm kind of scared.

^ hahahha what a nice waste of money

Not really a waste but a luxury... I am going directly into the sound card with a mixer and wouldn't want that thing in between but MAN that is nice! it looks cool and it must be really handy... love it!

The sticker does fit nicely... and that is coming from an other sticker un-friendly guy.

On Topic:
Guys... I think I may have a buyer for my MoBo... now don't cry... i will visit you guys from time to time... heheh...
It looks like my mobo will go bask on the Mediterranean sun in the Island Nation of Malta... MAN! My board is going to heaven! Did it die?!?!?

I hope it works out for you. If you need a buyer for your NB Noctua, I'd be all over that (hot, hot, hot right now at 1.45).

***EDIT: Not a waste of money because my case front out jacks were jacked. I ONLY use my headphones for gaming (must consider wife/dogs), so that is the most important thing.

maybe... sure... I was told the ABIT needs nothing more than some airflow over the existing cooling which scares me... but if it is so it might simplify things and I'd be selling it and the Evercool... I'll let you guys know and you have dibs on it... did you know I lapped it?

I have been trying to break my own little 3.0ghz wall for quite some time now. But for now, the only combo that seems stable is 3 Ghz with 5:4 Linked so my mem runs @ 1066mhz

I was able to get 5-5-5-12 2T on my OCZ Reapers PC8500, but thats about it. As soon as i change my FSB higher than 1334, my system gets unstable.

I also tried mem unlinked, mem @ 1066 and raising the FSB, again unstable over 3.0ghz

My voltages are:
1.48
2.10
1.35
1.50
1.50
1.55

Anyone got some hints.. i think im missing something with the whole mem thing.. Linked, Unlined, Synced.. etc..

U can check my system specs below.

Grats to everyone who seems to be more succesful than me, i've seen some nice OC's here
Hi Tekkah,
My setup is similar, q6600 and OCZ 6400 reapers. 700W PSU, Raptor and another HDD, Zalman 9700 coooler. Two trusty XFX 7800GT's in SLi.
I run FSB at 347 so 1390 in BIOS, 900 for the memory and unlinked. Careful when you play with the Asus booster it somehow resets to linked.
My voltages are 1.35 for CPU, 1.4 NB, 1.5 SB, 1.55VTT and 2.15 for the memory.
All the usual settings folks on this forum have recommended, so most things disabled, and i set my memory manually per the SPD (4/4/4/15/2t) with the rest to auto.
Check your PSU also. I started off using the 1.5 for CPU but can drop it under 1.3 to keep temps under 20C when i am not pushing the box.
I run pretty comfy at this setup, 3125 or so and seems to keep temps under check.
Good luck, if you need detailed PM me i will spell out the exact settings.

Hi guys,

Thanks for all the info!

My system is currently offline, i ordered 2 x Extreme Spirits II for the N & S bridges, and some paste. Those bridges really get hot!

Im still kinda new to the whole mem timings thing, especially with the Mhz'z. The timings i do understand.

So, correct me if i'm wrong. If i set my FSB at ...let's say 1400, i should set my mem mhz to 667 on 3:2 ?

I.E.

Is there a setting for my mem MHZ to put it on, so i can just raise the FSB of the CPU from that point till it reaches its max?

When you're trying to OC your CPU, it's best to leave the RAM at loose timings and at 1:1. In the BIOS, you will want to set FSB/RAM UNLINKED and type in the desired FSB value. 1400 actually means 350 FSB because it's quad-pumped. So, you would put into RAM 700 for 1:1 (DDR2 is double-pumped). Once you have a stable CPU OC, then you can start OCing the RAM, but you might find that you're faster at 1:1 than at 3:2. Just make sure to keep benchmarking after every bump.

I'm having trouble getting my northbridge off. Any help? I remember someone put up a video of them applying thermal paste to their NB and SB, and then they installed a Tuniq. Anyone know who's video that was?

Also, can I take off the thermal pads on the other parts connected to the heatpipes and apply paste to those 5 little square pieces on each of them?

It was USlatin, video is in his sig.

You'll still need thermal pads, 'cause height of the mosfets varies + board isn't straight, rather potato-chipped. I use T-pli 260, doubt that you can get it easily. Arctic Cooling sells some pads on ebay for cents + check Newegg.
