Also, try changing the Performance Enhance option (I don't remember the exact name)... the options are standard, turbo, and extreme...

Oddly, I'm stable at the turbo settings. I read an article somewhere that said the standard setting gave the fastest performance.
Yeah - thats what I anticipated when I bought this chip. It seems weird that I cant get to 4.0ghz since I get 3.6ghz no problem with no voltage change at all.

Even though my ram is stable @ 880mhz with my cpu @ 3.6ghz - I still am leaning towards my ram being the unstable factor when i get the cpu up to 4.0ghz

You can't arbitrarily lock the RAM frequency like that. It's linked to the FSB and can only be set by a multiplier of the FSB.

I.E

FSB = 400, so RAM would be 400 x 2.00 = 800, or 400 x 2.4 = ... etc.

That performance enhance stuff should be left on standard when you're seriously overclocking. I believe it messes with the phase of the memory-- it's a quick, dirty way of trying to squeeze performance from the computer.

That's what I thought from the beginning - though it seemed like DeRock was triyng to say otherwise. Probably just misunderstanding what I was trying to do.

Thanks for the clarification.

Anyways...does it make sense for RAM to be stable @ 880mhz when my CPU is @ 3.6..but not when its @ 4.0? Or is this definitely my cpu.

Well at 4.0ghz, you're technically running your memory at at least 888mhz, depending on the mutliplier selected. It could be that, or it could even be that you need more voltage on the FSB/MCH. Give your memory more voltage (if you're comfortable with that), and see where it gets ya, otherwise give your FSBv a bump. If it's not either of those, it's gotta be your processor.

If you're setting memory timings manually, "Performance Enhance" is a dead setting. It sets Static Read Delay, or tRD, as does the appropriate secondary memory timing in the BIOS after CTRL F1. Believe me it took a while to figure this out; Gigabyte isn't big on english language explanations.

If you set Static Read manually, it will override the "Performance" setting in the top bracket of settings.

My belief is that "Performance Enhancer" sets the tRD based on FSB strap (the old fashioned way) so that between 333-399 or so, Standard=8, Turbo=6, Extreme = 4. Above 400 they'd be loosened. Setting tRD manually allows you to dial in any static Tread delay you like on any FSB strap.

I haven't been able to make tRD=4 POST on any settings, though I haven't tried FSB below 333.

tRD, by the way, is even more important than CAS latency for the purposes of memory performance.

Has anyone had any problems with this board and an ATI X1950 Pro, my graphics card doesn't seem to be performing as well as it should do ?

ive locked the PCIE to 100MHz, the only voltages ive changed is my ram voltage to 2.1V and ive raised the FSB to 312MHz so my q6600 is at 2.8GHz and my ram is at 936MHz.

Any ideas to improve my graphics card ?

P.S. Ive got my ram in side by side(yellow and red slots) are you meant to put them both say in the 2 yellow slots or doesn't this matter ?

Umm..

Overclocking ure graphics card you do through windows.

Riva Tuner is the best for this.

DUAL Channel is both in the same colour

So slot 1 and 3 or 2 and 4.

Dual Channel improves bandwith and speed by a signifcant amount.

Hi,

I dont want to overclock my graphics card i just noticed that it was not performing as good as it used to in my cheaper asus board... thanks for the memory tip

the robust graphics booster is set to auto, should i set it to fast or turbo ?

also the performance enhancer is set to turbo should i set this to extreme ?

On my old board when i used to play a high spec game after 10 mins the graphics card fan would kick in, it was quite loud but now the fan just stays on quiet. Its like something is restricting my graphics card ????
