3.20 on q6600 on xfx 680i LT sli - Page 14

post #131 of 313
Okay, so it took me quite a while to read this entire thread and to get my own up to speed. But I'm running 1440MHz FSB (360MHz x 9), and I've found the most stable voltage for me is set at 1.41250V, and CPU-Z tells me it's at 1.376V. I really need to do the pencil mod. Why does it seem like everything keeps going wrong with this computer? Lol. First I was having a hard time getting quiet fans. So I got the Silenx iXtrema Pro's. Set me back over 80 bucks. Biggest waste of money ever. I bought them about 2 months ago, and 2 of them have died, one's about to, and they were neither quiet nor pushed much air. I am about to order 4 Slipstream 1900's. I think that will be better. Then I realized the OCZ Vindicator I purchased was crap. It helps to do research BEFORE you buy. So I got a TRUE, lapped it and my processor, mounted it, then realized the backplate was shorting something out (I thought this only happened with the EVGA 680i LT's). So I drilled out the spot, then wrapped the entire backplate in electrical tape, and remounted. I'm still a little peeved, because I don't think my lap is as flat as it should be, so I think I'm going to need to do it again. My temps suck. I'm at 39 Idle and 66 Load in a 23 Ambient. IMO, that's ridiculous for a lapped TRUE at 3.24GHz. So I don't like the tiny fans on the LT version either, I wish I would have gotten a 680i, but I can live with that decision for now. Eventually I'll probably get a 790i, but that's down the road. Along with my new fans, I'm ordering an HR-05 SLI/IFX NB HS as well as an HR-03GT VGA HS. That should shut my two most annoying tiny fans up, as well as give me better NB and GPU temps. We'll see. Then when I get around to it, I'm gonna relap, and I'll try and be patient this time and actually get it flat. Plus I need to pencil mod. If it's not one thing it's another. Why does everything have to be modified? Why can't they just make and sell things that don't suck? Why can't they send the TRUE's out flat? Or the Q6600's? Why are the TRUE backplates not engineered to take into consideration chips on the back of the MB? Why don't they make those little capacitors send the right amount of voltage without me having to apply some pencil lead? Why didn't they put a decent HS on the NB? Why does SilenX lie? Why do tiny fans have to whine so much? Oh well. When I DO upgrade, I'm gonna Quad-SLI 8800GT's on a 790i with a Silverstone ST and a QX9770 in a case that can fit it all. Until then, I'll just dwell in poor man's land. Lol.

Seemed to me like you were just ranting. Is there an actual question there?

Really I was ranting but also kind of looking for a suggestion for a MB that might be ready out of the box, if there is such a thing

If you don't need SLI, there is a big thread around here about the Gigabyte P35-DS3L that a lot of members love around here (I am one of them). It can be found for about $100 or less. Only thing is that the board does not support RAID.

Well, I do love SLI, although I'm not running it at the moment. For $100 or less, it might be worth a look. I'm not running raid right now, is it something I should consider? What's the benefit of running raid?

RAID can add speed as well as redundancy to your hard drives.

Hi people,

I have the xfx 680iLTsli board, a Q6600G0, 4x2GB geil pc6400 etc etc etc
I've got the p07 bios flashed into it and it runs 3200Mhz extremely stable.

like this:

I've disabled all speedstep etc stuff in the bios

cpu multiplier 9
fsb 1423
mem linked at 3:2 sp mem is approx 949

memtimings expert
tcl 5
trcd 5
trp 5
tras 10
cmd 2t
trrd 3
trc 32
twr 5
twtr 9
tref 7.8

voltages:
cpu 1.375 (1.33 idle in Vista, 1.28 under full load)
fsb 1.3
mem 2.1
spp 1.5


Now, if I set the vcore any lower, prime x4 just locks up my pc and orthos dies same goes for setting the spp voltage any lower.


To go further with this overclock I've been doing some reading in this forum and I decided to flash the p31 bios I did the flash successfully, rebooted, entered the cmos settings, set everything to default, rebooted, entered the cmos settings and started setting the settings I want.

The crazy thing (or not) is that this bios doesn't get me any better results whilst overclocking.

I've tried setting the fsb to 1700 and the multiplier to 8, mem unlinked and completely default. vcore to 1.45 (1.4idle and 1.35 under load) and I get a nice deadlock

Every step I've tried in between has about the same result as with the p07 bios. Did I miss something? Or does p31 just not overclock any better than p07 in my case?

Grtz
btw. I can get a bit higher than 3200Mhz but not much

Are those the factory timings for your memory? 5-5-5-10 seems kind of.. really tight.
post #140 of 313
nope those are not the factory timings but they work
tested with memtest.

stock is 5-5-5-15 @ 800Mhz
they strecht to 5-5-5-10 @ 950

that's great value for money isn't it?
