Opinions on X2 3800+ OC - Page 2

post #11 of 25
Thread Starter 
well i'm not leaning in either camp's direction just yet. It's just i've read the exact same things from Intel/AMD; 8+cores, DDR3, 3+Ghz at launch, and both claim 40+% more efficiency than the Quad core conroe's of today. It's kind of hard not to get excited isn't it?

Your problem with not achieving a better OC with your X2 3800+ is due to you putting stress on your memory controller. Having 4x512mb is bad for OCing and puts the memory controller on your A64 proc in DDR333mhz mode as well. I still have this mobo and the very same cpu....I got to 2.7ghz stable @ 1:1 with DDR500 memory. You need to run 2x1gb if you want to get to 2.7ghz+.

When people say Barcelona its safe to assume they mean a K10 quad core

blue devil i see your point but I honestly think this is just voltage, because the system wouldn't post at 1.45Vcore. Sometime today I'm going to up it to 1.5 and try 2700 again. But I Understand your point 4x512 is a issue.

Yea he's right I didn't even notice that you are running 4 sticks. That will put quite a strain on the memory controller.

Ok well looks like 2.6 it is for here on out until DDR3 is here. It's really smooth at that speed and i'm generally happy, but from here on out no more 4x512 for me. Thanks guys

Yea in gaming it won't make a bit of a difference. Especially if you only have 1 X1950 Pro. Good job!

Don't worry man I'm in the same boat, I cant push her far past 2.6 without another vcore jump and my temps wont handle that despite my massive cooling steps so it's 2.6 for me as well. As you say though, it handles everything just fine until early 08ish till I do a new build

yeah i thought about making the jump to DDR2 when it was introduced but the major WOW factor wasen't there for me. It just seemed like a move by AMD to support DDR2 so intel wouldn't leave them completely in the dust with conroe. Plus at 2.6 that's a FX-60 minus 512Kb of Level 2. You know speaking of WOW Vista didn't really give me that either, I just bought it because my XP install got corrupted and I didn't have the Install disc. Vista is actually annoying at times and fun at others. A lot of built in features.

You notice a difference running your CPU in 64 bit? I want to get Vista, but I will probably wait until I get another CPU and 4 Gb of DDR3. I hope they release some 2*2Gb kits of DDR3 initially. I don't want 4*1 Gb :\\
