I've let all the power saving features on (enabled) so that my CPU even overclocked will consume less energy and therefore the frequency will change from 2.0GHZ
to the full 3.0GHZ
when needed/full load.
: That's with the 0711 BIOS, but with the 1004 I am able to push to 350fsb easy. With the 0711 it wasn't stable.
So, my CPU is now running idle at 2.10ghz
and when it needs to run at full speed, it does 3.15ghz
I used to use a 2:3 ratio but now I'm using a 4:5 ratio which comes up to DDR2 835mhz. I'm not sure which G.Skills you have but if you don't have the HZs, for timings I'd suggest 4-4-4-12-6-35-10-10-10-10-10.
Also, lock the PCI-Express to 101 and the PCI clock to 33.33mhz, everything else set to auto.
