Overclocking -AMDX2 3800+ - Page 3

I found the problem...

I looked at the Geil Forums... The Golden dragon is a very high quality memory. i will not accept 3-x-x-x. It must stay 2 or 2.5 CAS. before I found out about the HT and its' Bus Link (Staying under 1000Mhz is best post somewhere else) I had the system up to 2.6GHZ on x4. Also had the memory on 2.8v and 2.5-4-4-8 with a set of Geil Value memory. This memory just wont drop that far back. I have now:

250FSB, HT=x4, Vcore 1.425v Vcore Special - 104%, DRAM Freq - 2.70v
Timings - 2.5-4-4-8, 5/6(166FSB). Everything works fine and seems stable. im in windows and running sp2004.

So I should change memory to OC the CPU more? or should I bump it up to 2.6GHZ, until my Zalman gets here? Or are you saying go with a whole new computer?

I can get 2x1GB and install the Zalsman CPU fan and those 1GB sticks have lower latency. like 3-3-3-8 so I can bump those back to the 4-4-4-12

nope Socket 939 DFI Lan Party D SLI. Only DDR. It takes PC4000 = DDR600 Tops from G.Skill, and a few others.

2-3 months and I was going to get the bundle from Tiger Direct:
EVGA 680i w/ QX6600 for 250.00, and add some OCZ Memory and a new PSU.

Lower that LDT/FSB Freq Ratio to 3 or 2. You start to become unstable at 1000Mhz and above.

Cool.. I lowered to x3 on the HT. I read that somewhere so i have been trying to stay blow 1000Mhz as I stated above. But the memory is the problem I thought. I won't accept anything other than CAS 2 or CAS 2.5. If I try to get CAS 3-x-x-x it will fail.

And yes you're correct on the memory. Thanks for checking me on that.
Well right now I'm stable at 2500 HT-x3 and DDR333 (166-5/6) with a Vcore of 1.425. i went up to 2.6HZ but I don't want to stay there because I think I should get a new fan. Heat idle at 2.6 is 35-36c. I'll wait for that Zalsman first.

Thanks guys, very much thanks to you MasterTrixter
