AMD Athlon 64 x2 6000+ Club! - Page 70

post #691 of 1595
Hey 6000+ members, heres a review of our Stock Heatsink... thats right, it beats all after market heatsinks and was #1 cooler, that was in 2006.

http://www.frostytech.com/articlevie...articleID=1962

So think again if you plan on replacing it... sure there are better and less noisy heatsinks in 2008 but it WAS the best in 2006. AMD included a very good heatsink! Your after market heatsink may fall behind the Stock one. check in this article where your heatsink falls as for 125W temp test and you may be surprised!

OK, another quick question ... when OC'ing RAM lower numbers are better correct? I want to set my CAS, tRCD, tRP, tRAS as low as possible right? So like, the default settings for my RAM are 5-4-4-15 and its rated for 2.1v - 2.2v, so I might want to try and set it at something like 4-4-4-12? Or how does that work?

Also, what about the tRC? For all this testing I have had it set at 26, will I want to turn that down as much as possible as well? And what might be a good setting for that?

Thanks all!

Ok, well since the reply was slow in coming I just set my RAM at some loose timings of 5-4-4-15-24 @ 2.1v and it seems to run fine. I would try to lower it some but every time I do the system becomes unstable for some reason or other.

I am finished OC'ing the CPU and RAM, you can check out how i fared in my system specs.

Next come the GPU's! wish me luck!

GPU's successfully OC'd!
core: 600MHz to 705MHz
memory: 900MHz - 951MHz
Yippy!

All in all, with my entire system OC'd how it is now I am running CRYSIS with everything set to high at about 40-50 fps... I'm not sure but I think that's pretty good! Also my 3DMark rankings went up.

Thanks for the help everyone. I know a lot more now then I did before, and next time this won't be such a huge deal!

hmm interesting about the stock compared to the zalman very surprising. but i dont have the stock one any more lol, im thinking it should be ok considering its only hitting the 50's in gaming so its not like its constant might try bending the zalman bracket for a firmer fit and redo the AS5 paste. speaking of which is AS5 or AS:ceramic the best ? lol also its 34 degrees in my room and its hitting 57
which isnt too bad considering the room temp i think

Here's a contribution for our 6000+ Club. 6Mhz short of 3.3Ghz with my crappy setup. Rock Stable and load at 59C for 30min with Orthos. FYI, thats 100% load on both cores...If you have any suggestions to break the mark, feel free to share. Note: I cannot up the voltage on Ram and CPU is given the most voltage possible from this MB at 1.4V and no NB Voltage on this. By the way Orthos really tortures, and quite frankly, most of my daily tasks load temps at 50C max, and since I'm not a gamer, I'm done on this OC. My issue is that if I set the FSB 1 MHz higher, yes I would reach the 3.3Ghz, but for some reason, my mouse cursor tends to freeze and completely locks and system requires cold reboot, so I had to settle at 235Mhz on FSB...

Sigh ... Is there any way to OC RAM without changing the Bus speed?
I OC'd my CPU to 3.273GHz by changing the Bus speed to 218 and the multi at 15x.
at these settings with my ram set to 800MHz its only getting 820MHz ... I want to know how to get it up to 1000 ... without changing the Bus speed preferably, or if thats even possible.

Thanks in advance!

Lower the multi to 14x like mine and raise your FSB, this will raise your Ram speed higher...if unstable, you can slightly up voltage on ram after, you can hit the 3.3Ghz mark. Yo'ur within reach big time!

Also, faster is not nessecarely better as to Ram OCing. If you want more speed, then you will lose out on faster timings. If you run the RAM linked/synched, then you will be able to achieve much better timings at a lower speed. Changing the speed and/or timings is considered OCing too. Thus, it is up to you to determine what you want.

Has anybody in our club hit 3.3Ghz with our 6000+ on stock cooling and Stable with load temps at or under 60C with at least 30min torture in Orthos?

If I lower the multi to 14 then i would need a bus speed of 236MHz to get 3.3 and when I put my bus speed up that high for some reason my comp is very unstable. I don't know what to do!
