Can you do a bench at 800Mhz with tight timings and see if there is a difference.
Why are you replacing one 680i with another 680i? That's not much of an "upgrade". Why not get an x38 that will at least be able to support 45nm quads, something NO Nvidia chipset is/will be able to do.

Err. the new 7 series will support the 45nm quads.

And i am going from this 680i to the evga 680i because Asus's 680i has serious ocing problems with the quad.

I am getting the Evga 680i A1 Revision because i want sli and i want to be able to oc my quad beyond 3Ghz.

And i am not waiting until the 780i unless it comes out within 3 weeks.

Your information about the 7x0i supporting 45nm quads is sketchy at best. It was only two days ago that Nvidia announced NO 45nm quads would be supported on their current chipsets... AFAIK, they remain mum on if 7x0i will support them. Intel and Nvidia are in a spat because Nvidia wouldn't license SLI technology to the new Intel chipset. If they don't figure out a compromise before 7x0i is launched, you can expect they never will.

If you have the money to replace (not upgrade) parts, then all the power to you. I'm sure you'll get a better OC on your new board... hopefully it turns out to be worth it.

I just acquired

Crucial Ballistix Tracer: DDR2, PC8500
Running Frequency: 800Mhz
Timings: 4-4-4-10 - 2T
Voltage: 2.0v
Memory Size: 2GB (2 * 1GB)

CPU is overclocked to 3.0GHz using 9 x 333 FSB. Any suggestion for my system since i couldn't go more? Anyone with similar setup?


EDIT: OK just tried CPU Multiplier 8 x 400 FSB with same setting for RAM as previous setting and voltage. 3 frames faster in Aquamark. 1 sec faster in 1M SUPER_PI. CPU voltage is set to 1.275V but i am not sure if this voltage is stable. Idle CPU temp is 45C. Load CPU temp is 63C

3.2 with a high fsb is better than 3.2 with a lower fsb.

Increasing FSB basically increases the max bandwidth between the cpu and motherboard > memory.

I CREATED A HWBOT TEAM FOR THIS STUFF. Go to http://hwbot.org/profile.team.do?teamId=1761 and register on Hwbot.org if you havent before, and join the team to submit benchmarks for the team. I guess we can use this to submit ram OC's only. Or whatever else you wanna submit to I guess.


We can use this to submit different frequencys/timings with each different tests you can submit to proove the differences. Or we can just have all the crucial ballistix owners in a team benchmarking CPU/GPU/Memory and all, which I think is a good idea. If everyone in this thread participated with that team then it would turn pretty nice. I made a new hwbot name besides my main one for the OC.net team just for the crucial owners though
