There are too many options in my BIOS. LOL. Like I said I'm about to give up. I think that It's pretty much maxed out at stock speeds.
Nonsense! Alright first thing, using any Windows based overclocking utility = FAIL 99 times out of 100. It just creates instability. If you're changing settings in the AMD OverDrive AND trying to change settings in the BIOS it simply won't work. Your system will become unstable I can promise you, so it's best to uninstall the AMD OverDrive, reset your CMOS, and just do it all from the BIOS.

Now I have a question, when you got your motherboard to 340MHz reference clock, 1650 HT Link, was that through the BIOS or AMD OverDrive? If it was AMD OverDrive, retest the motherboard in the BIOS (shouldn't take long, you can increase reference clock by about 5-10MHz at a time until Windows doesn't load. Then move onto the CPU and let us know how high you can overclock the CPU. Make sure you're giving the memory 2.1v.

I will do that tomorrow. I have been re installing windows for 7+ hours now. I am curious why everyone keeps telling me that the manufacturer reccomends my memory at 2.1v when Corsair's website tells me 1.8v ?

http://www.corsair.com/_datasheets/T...-6400C5DHX.pdf

Where are you all seeing 2.1v?

Also, I've manually set the BIOS to 2.1v and every time I do it, boot up and run CPUZ, it keeps telling me that I'm at 1.8v. So aparently what I think is the RAM speed isn't. Like I've said... Too Many Options. LOL.

Austiclees, the ram voltage should read something like VDIMM. I had a look at your manual and I actually couldn't locate anywhere for memory voltage adjustments. Are you looking in the JumperFree Configuration?

Good luck

Yes. One you set the JumperFree Config to Manual you can edit a lot more items. One of them is DDR Voltage. Taken right out of the manual:

"
DDR Voltage [Auto]
You can enter the desired DDR2 voltage using the numeric keypad. The values range from 1.80V to 2.50V with a 0.02V interval.
__________________________________________________ ____
Refer to the DDR2 documentation before adjusting the memory
voltage. Setting a very high memory voltage may damage the
memory module(s)!
__________________________________________________ ____
"
Now. When I set this to 2.10V or whatever, when I boot up and start CPUZ it still tells me that it's set to 1.8V

Btw... I just installed 2 more 1GB sticks of the same memory.

Austiclees, have you tried running another application to view the voltages such as Everest? Make sure in the BIOS after you make changes you hit "F10 Save and Exit".

Good luck

Okay I just installed Everest Ultimate Edition 4.50 and I don't know where to quickly look to show the voltage. I ran a full report and about 75 pages down it told me that my voltage was at 1.8. It is set to 2.1 in the BIOS. And yes I make sure i save changed before I exit. I even save my changes to a profile as well. IHNFC what is going on.

Austiclees, the temperatures/voltages are listed under Computer --> Sensor.
If you change the DDR Voltage to 1.9 or even 2.0 does it save those changes?

Good luck

Ahh, I've never seen the CAS5 version of Corsair's PC2 6400. Yea according to those specs 1.8v is correct, which makes sense because no 2.1v memory should running CAS5 at PC2 6400 speeds. Most people with Corsair PC2 6400 have these, which are CAS4 and require 2.1v. Sorry for confusing you, you're right 1.8-1.9v is the voltage for your memory.

Durch, not to be ignorant or anything but how come CAS 5 memory doesn't run at 2.1volts?

I still do not see where it shows me the memory voltage, and CPUZ is still reporting 1.8V. LOL, any other ideas?
