Asus Rampage Formula (X48) Thread - Page 84

@hogans

It looks good in my eyes, you have a really nice overclock there.

You can try to run Ai Clock Twister Lighter or Light, this put less strain on the MCH (NB) and maybe this can make a different so you can gain 5 to 10 MHz in busspeed, you get a little lower bandwidth and higher latency but I doubt if you notice that in real life applications, you can probably also lower your NB voltage and still hold your 470 busspeed or higher.


You can also try to fiddle some with CPU and NB clock skew, something like this

CPU clock skew > Delay 100ps
NB clock skew > Normal
or
CPU clock skew > Delay 200ps
NB clock skew > Normal
or
CPU clock skew > Delay 300ps
NB clock skew > Normal
or
CPU clock skew > Delay 200ps
NB clock skew > Delay 100ps
or
CPU clock skew > Delay 300ps
NB clock skew > Delay 100ps
or
CPU clock skew > Delay 300ps
NB clock skew > Delay 200ps


I quess if you load LinX with max memory use it going to overheat your quad, is that the reason why you run so low memory use and problem size?

Thanks for the tips!

What should I be running for a problem size and memory usage in LinX?

Depends on what you want to achieve, most people use it to maximize the load on the CPU to check stability and it sure put some heavy load on the CPU if you use max memory, it can get really hot.

The more memory in use the higher problem size the higher work load for the CPU.

You also put a lot more strain on the subsystem (NB, memory and bus) when you use more memory, that way you also check your subsystem for stability, specially the NB and the Front Side Bus.

Usual 10 - 25 loop should be fine to check for stability and if it makes it doesn´t mean that the system is stable, it´s just stable with LinX, one should run other application also to check for stability, such as for example, Prime95 small FFT, Large FFT, Blend.

Had a dabble at 3DMark06, 3 hours gaming and shes still purring like a kitten

nice thread. i know these are a top of the range mb but ive been looking at the prices and although the mb is nearly 2 years old its almost the same price as when it came out.
with the new i cpu"s already out and the 775"s on the way out how can they still sell these mb"S at these prices?

I'm not even sure they're still making/stocking them anymore. Retailers are so retarded they'd rather not sell something at all and let it sit in the warehouse than sell it at a loss.

One of the reasons I am thinking retailers are not willing to sell these lower is because they know if you have a DDR2 setup, and you want one of these fine boards, you have no choice but to pay up. With DDR2 memory prices sky high, I can't imagine a lot of people willing to throw their ddr2 based parts away. Until the 6 core cpus become commonplace and ddr3 memory prices come down to earth, I don't really see any significant cost/benefit advantage to upgrading to the corei7, apart from a few synthetic benchmarks. And 8 core, 16 thread 22nm haswell cpus are about what, a year+ away?

I finally was able to reach 500 FSB on my Rampage Formula. It took alot of NB volts to do it though.
