you gave me motivation on many occasions. I was wondering. I just checked my mail box and yipy I got my gskill and ballistix ram modules to start testing.

Does any one know if it could hurt the ram if I used them while they are cold from being out side in my mailbox all day???

Not unless they got moist/wet from being out there, I'd say there's no danger. If they were packaged well, then no worries.

Have fun testing, N2G!

Thank you, they were in the original packaging plus in the bubble rap envelopes locked up tight inside my mail box. I don't think they are moiste. maybe I'll take a hair dryer to them from a distance as not to heat em up but to make sure they are dry and not damp from coming inside from the cold. condensation dew etc works the same way on metals like when you take a cold drink "like I did earlier to celebrate getting those temps down" out of the fridge and moisture builds up on the out side of the drink...

Edit: and like I'm going to do again becuase I just got some new ram for testing. I'll celbrate before I find out they are bad

Edit #2: blitz asked me why I was building a clear cmos switch on the BNBB project. well it just came in handy. I'm playing with new ram and it has different timings and I don't think the board likes the Gskill as much as the ocz. but in any case I'm loving that little clear cmos switch already...

N2Gaming, a single 120 x 38mm fan would offer a significant amount of air pressure over a single 80mm fan. Your temps dropped because you improved your airflow. I believe this was suggested several times in previous posts. If you had a case that offered proper fan placement either it be 80mm or 120mm then you might have a easier time. Don't forget also you're running 1.4volts through that processor so that is also contributing to the higher load temps. All Opteron 1xx series processors also have a 110 TDP.

Good luck

I was just teasing you man. I know a bigger chassis with more room for air circluation would be better but I'm a dye hard man. I gotta do things the hard way some times. It turns out the best placement of the side mounted 80mm fan is as an intake centered directly over the chipset fan. Did you notice how much the chipset fan slowed down once it was getting cooler air to it. It went from 7000 to less then 4000

Since I'm building a new Q9550 rig, I decided to see how far I could push my 939 Venice 3200+ being that I don't have to worry about being stuck without a computer if I fried it.

I usually run my 3200+ @ 2.48GHz 24/7 with stock voltage (1.375v) and cooling, idle temp = ~41c, load temp =~51. 12 hours + Prime 95

It took 1.5v to get it to 2.65GHz. Idle = 43c, load 53c. It ran prime 95 stable for 10 min, that was all I tried.

I was able to get it to 2.7GHz (Validation) with 1.575v, load windows run everything but fail prime 95. Temps were 43 & 55. This was with the HT link @ 1080

I wasn't able to go to the windows loading screen with anything higher, Even after I pushed it to 1.625v which is my motherboards max.





I also lowered the multi to 9 and was able to get 9x300 = 2.7GHz, but I couldn't go any higher being that my board doesn't let me input anything higher than 300. During this run my HT link was 1200 (validation), It took 1.625v to get there.




Overall I have to say that this biostar 939 motherboard and my 3200 have given me a lot of value and fun for the last 3 years and I'm gonna miss messing around with it them. (I'm actually thinking of keeping it to start folding / try linux.)



(yeah I know the Q9550 is treason, I just couldn't resist a NIB E0 Q9550 for $183 shipped after ebay coupon/cashback. My original plan was to see what Phenom II could do. After reading about Gigabyte's P45-UD3P I knew I needed that board.) This is gonna be my first multi-core rig, and finally I'm gonna have a sm4.1 4870, after getting stuck without sm3.0 on my x800.

Ok so I found another board that I think would actually be perfect for folding. DFI Lanparty UT NF4-ULTRA-D/G I did a goole search on it but have had no luck finding any info. Any ideas? Anyway heres a pic.
