Hey Cognoscenti,
I checked your gallery out and I really like your rig. Very good job! I must say that I'm quite fascinated to see a moddrix My ex-girlfriend should see you, lol

Anyway, I'm trying to plan a board design, so I have a couple questions if you don't mind:

In "photos_021", is the Thermalright SLI cooler bent?

If you used only a single gpu at the south pci-e, do you think the Thermalright SLI would fit at the northbridge while angled north-west to south-east? I'm concerned that the ram sticks may interfere...

I really appreciate it, thanks!

http://ramlist.infinityx.nl/ddr2/

Interesting that some of the Micron products are hand picked and some are not. I wondered what caused me to pay an extra 50 bucks per 2G module just to get the suffix "D" on the end of my model number. I don't know if that extra dough is worth it versus OCZ for example that isn't? I can get this memory to run without any memtest errors at 882mhz 4-4-4-8 1T but at 900mhz if produces errors at the usual spot that catches most memory problems, the dreaded test #5...so perhaps handpicking isn't the greatest thing!

Back to the dividers - can't report too much other than to confirm what I think Robilar alluded in the above quote in that if one doesn't use the oft quoted dividers, you run the risk of bottlenecks occuring outside of benches e.g. 15:16 etc

Edit: Looks like 895mhz 4-4-4-8 1T on the RAM is the max after several runs on memtest86. At 900 the machine seems rock solid but does produce memtest86 errors so obviously 1 error is 1 error too many and can't be used.

Thats a solid list and its been posted a number times as an excellent reference tool.

882 at those timings with 1T is excellent and will bench very well mhw. I'd stay with that. I've been able to get my ram to run at 915 stable with similar timings as well (4-4-4-8 1T)


The D suffix on your memory is for Dominator. Its not the IC but the Dominator heatspreaders that relate to that suffix. You can get Corsair PC2-6400D Dominators (which there was a big stink about a couple of months back). They initally had micron IC's and then mid run Corsair changed them to (crappy) Promos IC's without notice to buyers. I got a set and returned them because of this issue.

I thought I'd point out something that isn't mentioned in the first post of this thread and I feel some members may find it important. Sometimes, depending on the main FSB set, you RAM will run lower than the value you set it to when in Unlinked mode.

For example, 1512FSB and 800Mhz on the RAM will actually make your RAM run at about 754Mhz. To get round this I simply kept setting my RAM from 801, 802, 803, 804, 805, 806, until finally at 807Mhz it showed my RAM actually running at my desired speed of 801Mhz.

I'm still looking into why Unlinked mode does this and weather its simply an issue with XMS2 DIMMs or just how the chipset handles the memory. I thought I'd oint out that at 1440FSB and 800 on the RAM, the RAM runs bang on 800Mhz. This is leads me to belive that it is more likely to be a chipset discrepencie.

I haven't seen that in awhile and because I manually set ram speeds separately (as you did by trial and error), it becomes a non issue. You are right that it does crop up but manual adjustments easily resolve it.
