Been pretty much in the middle of no-where, with no internet access at all. I'm only online right now because I'm at my parent's house.

Believe me I know the feeling. Our little one is 3 months old today and he just started sleeping through the night. Needless to say my sleep schedule is still messed up and my school is suffering immensely. O well I guess getting a c+/B- in anatomy and physiology with little to no studying isn;t too bad .

Stay outta trouble bro.

Of course . Yeah, he's still waking up every 2-3 hours. But he's now up to 10 pounds (from 4 pounds 11 ounces)...and drinking 6-8 oz of formula now. He's catching up real quick . I just REALLY wish he'd sleep more, lol.

Thanks blitz. I was just going to comment on my reluctance to open up the .doc or .xls files for fear of virus and maliciouse codes. No offense to you joe but I have not installed a virus scanner yet and don't want to end up where I was last week cussing at my pc and banging my head against the wall "figuratively speaking" So the .PDF was just the thing I needed.

Now joe I am astonished by your thorough time put into the overclocking methods. Heck I just go for it and shoot for the moon. blitz calculator helps me out at times when I'm really in the mood to get seriouse. You know what's funny is my ASUS M2N32 mobo has 4x1Gig of DDR800 ram and I run them at DDR800 w/very little overclock and they get better band width then my Foxconn Destroyer board running 2x2GB DDR1066 ram at DDR800 overclocked to DDR923. I'm gonna have to look into the ganged and unganged and maybe swop out the DDR1066 for some DDR800 and see if it's just the ram that is slowing things down. If the ram is the culprit then I'll be a monkeys but.

Once again Good Job on your recordings.

Hmm come to think about it some one was considering taking a break from Overclocking if I remember correctly. So glad that person has stuck w/it.

How old is he now? And yeah they seem to make up for lost time. Our little one was technically 3 weeks early, I believe he was 5lbs. 11oz. and didn't have an ounce of fat on him when he was born. Now, he's a straight up little chunker, he's got rolls in places I didn't know you could get rolls.

And man he's been drinking 6oz of breastmilk since he was born. I finally figured out that he was gorging himself and that was causing his stomach aches. So not only did he not sleep, he cried most of the time too .
Good thing we're getting past that stage.

pio! Great to hear from you! You've been missed.

Good to hear all is well, sleep deprivation and all that considered.

N2G: No offense taken. I totally get where you're coming from.

Hehe, it IS quite time-consuming doing things the way I do, but I find that I learn a heck of a lot more doing things methodically, especially when it comes to hardware I've never played with before.

Ironically, I found out that using a "shortcut" enabled me to progress far more rapidly than doing things all on manual. I was telling thlnk3r in a recent conversation that I was so surprised that the "Auto" settings worked so well on the SLI-DR; on the CFX3200, using "Auto" on anything, even at stock, frequently led to disaster. When I was working on things all on manual, I could only squeeze out 15MHz from those Crucials. I was convinced that maybe one of the DIMMs, or perhaps both of them, may be duds.

Good thing the "Auto" modes worked so well.

He's roughly 1 and a half months old. 6-6-09 was his birthday. And yeah, ours is getting to the point where he cries just to be held . We're trying to break him of that one....because we just can't hold him all night, lol.

Hate to tell ya buddy, you gotta hold em. And they say, for the first year you can't hold them too much.
Also, keep in mind that physical stimulation like being touched and held and talked to will make the baby grow faster and healthier. Studies have been shown that babies that get little physical stimulation do very poorly as in they stay underweight and get sick more easily because of lack of appetite.

You know an easy way of getting around that is get one of those baby carrier things. then you just strap em to ya and go about your business. Free's up your hands to do other things.

And just so you know the first 3 months are the hardest, it just gets easier from there.... well until they start walking then talking.

Oh, don't get me wrong...we DO hold him. Its just at night, when we're trying to sleep. We don't want him spoiled either (which holding him too much will do).

I'm glad your sharing w/us your trials and tribulations. I'm learning a lot just form you and your tests. I may have to adopt a system like this. The only thing I fear is the tediouse work involved w/my lack of patience w/the work of changing one thing in the bios at a time. I'm to impatient. If only there was a Windows based overclocking tool that would give full bios options w/in the windows environment. That would make it so much easier if one of the settings were no good. Because I could just do a quick reboot to get me right back to where I left off knowing the last change I made was no good and I would not have to CLR CMOS and start over from scratch plus wait for the bios to save and reboot again over and over again. BTW is there a benchmarking app that will show you what all of the ram timings are running at if you have them set to auto. It would be nice to be able to see where they start off at on auto mode so that I would know where my next move could/would be up or down.

EDIT: It's been a while since I played w/my Crucials. I think I ran my DDR500 at 3.4.3.8 1T 2.8V and I can't remember the rest and that is where a chart to track my progress like the one you created would be perfect for any one like me w/a pooooooor memory.

EDIT #2: Hey Pio, glad is all well w/u atm. I don't have any baby experience so I just stayed out of that conversation.
