If you're still running at sigged CPU clock, you can try a smart 1:1 for 667. We have the identical RAM and board, so I know you can get 3-3-3-8-1T at 667 (tighten tRC to 13).

I don't know how the B3 will react, but a lot of G0 users get slightly better FSB, and you might be able to open up a little more. Even a 17MHz jump to 350 (RAM to 700, same timings) might push you into a new NB strap.

**EDIT: When I say I don't know how the B3 will react, I mean the Q6600 B3. Obviously, I have a B3 as well... which gets to past 360 FSB, Windows-stable.
hello all. yep, i'm a new-comer to this forum, but not to ballistix. i run 4 1GB modules of ddr2 800. currently, i run mine 1:1 with my 333 fsb.

my question is how are you able to achieve 1t? nothing i do so far has allowed me to even POST with that setting. otherwise, 3 3 3 8 timings work like a charm on my machine.

one other question, is how are you able to set your tRFC to 12 or 13, as the BIOS only shows increments of 5, starting at the lowest of 20, which of course i use.

oh, and sorry for not having my signature set up with all pertinent specs. i gots a leetle homework to do, i know! so, for now, i run a q6600 G0, on the same board you use, a maximus formula, BIOS 0907.

sorry to break the ice with a pile of questions, btw.

I'm having a problem with getting them to run 4-4-4-12-24 with 2.2v. I am however running them with 1 stick of the old(double sided dimms).

Now the catch is, even when I run the new set by themselves they still will not boot up and I get ram error.

I can get it to run and be stable with 5-5-5-15-38 2.3v but can't run anything lower or it won't boot.

Is anybody else having problems with these new ic's on the Ballistix???


EDIT: Oh yea, they are the DDR2 PC26400 Ballistix 2x1GB Kit.
lol, I've got the same issue I can't run my ram at spec either.

I'm seriously considering getting some other ram... or calling crucial and seeing what I should do about it.

My sticks seem to overheat and stop working... I'm running 4-4-4-12-24 @ 375MHz and 2.2V. I'm pretty sure its overheating because it ran Orthos blend test fine for about 2 hours then it stopped and it isn't the CPU. I opened the case and felt them and they are almost too hot to touch.

nvm..... apparently you were referring to BEFORE you were running your maximus, Dostoyevsky77. when you said you had the same board in your reply to the_rocker, it dawned on me HE has an nVidia chipset, which can do 1t. from what i read, intel won't do 1t. sorry.

btw, correct me if i'm wrong. thanks. feel free to PM me, so as to not clog up this thread any further, as i've *cough* done......

DETAILS
2 X 8500 running @ 1000
Q6600 @ 3.15
Quad750
680i
8800GTS 640
Raptor 10000

Oh yeah.. I called Crucial today and guess what? They are not making the 16 chip module 8500 ddr2 anymore so ROCKER
HOW DO YOU LIKE THOSE DETAILS?

BLACKWATER11

P.S. Rocker.. bend an ear.. let me tell you something. Has it ever occurred to you that people might want to look at the details of other systems all on the same thread? Ask the many out there if they would rather NOT move back and forth between threads just to look and find details as well as dialogue to mix and match what's working and what isn't?
post #746 of 1096
All 4 of my sticks just died . I requested an RMA so hopefully I'll get a new set of 4.

Yep, about to RMA 2 sets with them, hopefully when I get the replacements everything will be smooth. Crucial has kinda been on my bad side here lately.



Hey wire, you gonna be able to get those sent out tomm. or are ya gonna have to wait. Hope you get them back in a timely manner. My last RMA with them they sent them 2 day so that was kind of them.

yes, i just got a set back from crucial myself. their customer service was perfect. vanessa kellogg was my associate. they send an email upon receipt of your modules. and they do send those back 2-day fedex.

all i would suggest is to give them a few days, and make a phone call to see the status. someone had not given the release for mine, and once i called, they apologized and fixed it right there.

another thing...

i had the ddr2 800mhz 2x1GB kits. two of them. one set had a model number ending in .16FD5, while the other set had a .16FD3. the older set ended in 3. ironically, it was the newer set that had a bad module.

so i researched a bit, and found that the newer modules being made often had bad chips. they also look different than the older ones, as they don't have a two clips holding on the heat spreaders. the spreaders are held on by adhesive TIM.

i was ecstatic when the replacements arrived, and they were like my older ones and ended in '3'. work perfectly.

mine run at 1:1, 333FSB (q6600), at 3 3 3 8 2t. 4 modules too!

one other thing: ravin..... how in the world do you get yours to run 1t on that board? i have exactly the same board, and 1t will not even think about posting. at ANY speed or timings setting. i posted a bit further up trying to get dostoyevsky to offer any thoughts, as he also runs his at that command rate, and ALSO has our same board.

Just need to say that I am closing the detail thread as we cannot put in the time to keep updating the list.

Carry on using this thread to compare RAM details and troubleshoot etc...
