I cant wait for the X48 bios version of the Maximus Extreme (I think it is the Pinot Noir).

That's what I was afraid of when I saw the timings on DDR3. CAS 7-8 at 1600MHz (one clock=0.625ns) is nearly the same as CAS 6 at 1200ish (one clock=0.83ns) or CAS 5 at 1000ish. If you do the math, CAS 8 @1600 and CAS 6@ 1200 are exactly the same....5.0ns.

Still though, you're getting over 10K read and under 60ns which ain't too shabby. I think with some serious work you could see up to 15% better performance- should you be able to break the 800MHz barrier. You can do it ...I know you can!

Hi, im new to this forum and newb to OCing too!!! i just ordered new hardwares and am about to build my new comp! im so eager! i made many researches to get the best gears for my budget (the gears are in my sig)
i wanted to know a few things about OCing with that motherboard
i would like to OC my e8400 and i think that if i set my FSB to 500mhz instead of 333 id be getting 4.5ghz stock and then i could OC it further by changing the voltage right??
at the same time, i should be able to use my 4x2gb 1000mhz(stock) RAM in dual channel right?
i am unsure on how to do all those things... so far, does that make sense??;p
changing FSB and voltage needs to be done in the BIOS right?
Tx for the help in advance!!!!!

Definitely set all the voltages in bold to specified settings and not auto. Go to the Hardware monitor in bios and post the actual voltage for each of those (they are displayed beneath the temps), then we can go from there.

You need to first worry about getting 3.8GHz stable, then work your way up from there. I just helped Collateral with his 4.0GHz E8400 OC and we set the following:

FSB Strap: Auto
FSB:
RAM speed: 9xx (cant remember becasue we ended up setting his Ballistix to 1102, but it is the next divider down)

Loadline Calibration: enabled (others are reporting to set it disabled on E8X00 chips, but he wanted to reduce vdroop)
CPU voltage: 1.328v
NB voltage: 1.49v
FSB Term voltage: 1.42v
PLL voltage: 1.52v


note: he also bumped it up to 500 x8 multi for the same 4.0GHz OC.

NB voltage: 1.55v
FSB Term voltage: 1.54v


Also, 1 or 2 of these might be off by 0.02v because i cant remember the exact settings, but they are def. close!

Hope this helps

Hi Eric,
I found the following in my bios:

Vcore - 1.288
3.3V volt - 3.232 V
5V volt - 4.896 V
12V volt - 12.376 V

Is this what you mean?

Just installed Asus Probe v1.04.49 and it gives almost the same values.
Vcore - 1.30V
+3.3 - 3.23V
+5 - 4.90
+12 - 12.43

I was hopeing it would give you the northbridge voltage. Well I would recommend setting the following voltage:

Vcore: 1.3v
NB Voltage: 1.45v
FSB Termination voltage: 1.36v (dont go over 1.4v)
PLL: 1.52v

Then see how high you can OC on those settings for now. Just make sure to set your NB Strap to 333 or 400 (for stability) and your ram to withing specs (by setting them ram manually to as close as you can to their rated speed).

Hi Eric,
I will try this tomorrow cause I'm away this evening.
Since I'm new to overclocking you could explain what you mean with "...and your ram to withing specs (by setting them ram manually to tas close as you can to their rated speed)"

I think he's saying to set your memory as close to the manufacturer's specifications as you can get. I see you have PC6400 memory, so it should be rated something like 800MHz 5-5-5-15 1.8V or 800MHz 4-4-4-12 2.1V

I'd reccomend trying getting 800MHz 5-5-5-15 on your RAM and OC your CPU only first (to find the limit), then do the opposite. Set your CPU to stock and try your RAM at 8xxMHz 4-4-4-12 or 3-3-3-8; 9xxMHz 4-4-4-12; then 1xxxMHz 4-4-4-12 or 5-5-5-15.

If you let me know which Kingston set you have, or if you happen to know which ICs they sport, I may be able to suggest some potentially reasonable stable settings for you.

Edit: Just saw you have 2Gb sticks so CAS3 is probably out of the question.
