post #10731 of 28699
Have I reached the DFI's limit?!?! I got the board to 276 mhz, fully stable. But for some reason it doesnt want to go any higher, it doesnt appear to be a CPU thing because I tried all the multiplers from 6-9, once I try to boot in 278 itll POST and all that, then it gets into some sort of pre-windows self check thing and it doesnt find something about the DMI pool and reboots.
Do I need to up the LDT voltage or the chipset voltage? And on smart guardian is the PWM IC- pulse width management integrated circuit? And are those basically the caps?

Thinker, Mudd you guys got any suggesttions?

I've personally never ran a DFI motherboard before that I could handle. We ran a DFI NF3 board a while back, but I couldn't even tweak with that board for stability.

However, it sounds to me like you need to up your chipset voltage slightly to continue past 278.

bumping the chipset voltage would be my guess , you should be able to get alot higher than that

This thought is from out of left field, but what PSU are you running with your DFI? Sorry if you've mentioned this before, but I've forgotten.

pio and froggy, CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I'm so happy for the both of you!

BlackOmega, as others have said try adjusting your chipset voltage from 1.5volts to 1.6volts. Is this a Ultra D or a SLI-DR board? Sorry I can't recall what you purchased. Factory chipset voltage is 1.5volts for my SLI-DR. Yes PWM is the pulse width modulation. Those are located on the left of the Socket. They are under alum heatsinks. More info on PWM: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pulse-width_modulation. I believe they are mosfets and not caps. (If I am wrong someone please correct me)

WOW Pioneer caught me by surprise. Congrats

Take the Disney cruise in Florida for your honeymoon. I know it sounds like a child's vacation but it was so worth my money. I ate a lot of food and played many hours of ping pong. Needless to say my wife kicked my butt every time

Good luck guys

Tried it, no change.

Im thinking I can because its totally stable @ 276 not even a hint of instability. But 277 no boot, POSTs, gets to teh self check screen, it cant verify DMI pool or some crap and then it restarts.

Ok the basic getup, until I get my Centurion case, is my sig rig. So Im using the PCPnC PSU, the Asus case and the WD HDD. As for the DFI board, Im using my kingston RAM, the XP-120 cooler and my opty 165. I mean its already doing better than my Asus board did with this CPU. I know its something to do with the board because it wont go any higher even @ 6x, my Asus board with the exact same RAM and CPU got to 336 @ 6x.

But Im starting to wonder if its something to do with the BIOS, because there things that just dont work right, I have it set so it turns the numlock on @ startup - it doesnt, any voltages that I change manually dont take except for the CPU VID Special which is the CPU VID x 104%. But it only multiplies the default CPU VID (1.31v) not the value I set.

Also theres a setting in the RAM option- bank interleaving. What does that do? And is it better to enable or disable it?

Thanx guys!

BlackOmega, here is a good read about "bank interleaving": http://www.realworldtech.com/page.cf...WT110401204523.

See my suggestion above, I think you might of missed it.

Good luck
