Hey man how you doing?

I am using the Auto ganged feature and just set my ram to ddr800 4.5.5.12.18.2T and it deff helped speed up the cache memory benchmark scores. I don't think I am using sli enabled ram and I am using static ram timings voltages etc.

EDIT: Sorry guys the ram timings were 5 5 5 12 18 2T I just uped the fsb to 267 and cpu multi to 12x for a 3200Mhz oc and finally breaking the 8k Read MB/s and Latency of 42.9 ns FTW

I've been reading about your woes over the past couple of days, but it looks like you are really starting to get that chip rolling now.

Yes I am, thank you. I am usually a little slow out the gate but I always seem to get there at some point in the game. I have created a temporary system for this untill I get all the creases Iron'd out then it will become my sig rig. http://www.overclock.net/system.php?i=35804

EDIT:

I noticed CPU-Z reports my NB Frequency @ 2200 Mhz and I'm wondering if that is OK or if it should be slower for stability and how to go about changing the NB Frequency???







Also I put up a couple of PC's side by side for Comparrison to see if maybe the cpu has any thinkg to do w/the NB Frequency

N2Gaming, thanks for including those 3DMark06 comparisons. Very informative

From what I've read there is hardly a need to exceed the factory 1800Mhz HT speed for these processors. Many users in the Phenom II steppings thread are running the HT speeds below 2000Mhz. Some though are actually running around the 2200Mhz range. Other than that I haven't seen anything over that. Once you get these puppies dialed in it's no turning back

I wish I could tell you where to change/modify the HT settings but I am not familiar with that BIOS. It's probably a bit different from the online version.

Hope that helps

The link to the system did not work.

The NB Frequency can be changed under Advanced->Chipset http://enthusiast.hardocp.com/image....8xOV9sLmdpZg==

Spaceballrules, thanks for the clarification. I thought the 2205 BIOS might be different. Turns out that BIOS is officially supported under Asus. I must of got that BIOS mixed up with the non-official one for the M2N-SLI

Good luck

Don't quote me on that (Too late!), but that is what it looks like in the 1701, 2001, and 2101 BIOS versions. I doubt that Phoenix would remove that option from the 2205 BIOS, but I cannot confirm that. Usually BIOS updates only add options, if anything. The only notes that Asus provides on the 2205 BIOS is that they made it more compatible with certain types of RAM, so everything should look the same.

Sorry for that. I have edit'd the other post and here it is again. http://www.overclock.net/system.php?i=35804

It appears I have to make a very carefull cpu/fsb overclock and watch the NB Frequency changes in cpuz. the only thing that I could find that would change the NB Frequency is the FSB thus far. I will continue to research this w/hands on trials and leard from my mistakes as I seem to always do. Make mistakes that is

Look at what I found on Google. - http://www.overclock.net/amd-bios/21...frequency.html

From what I gather, you need to turn down the HTT multiplier from 5x to 4x or even 3x. That way you can increase the FSB on the CPU without over-ramping your chipset frequencies.

I agree with that.

I've read in several forums that with AM2/AM2+ boards, it is advised to keep the HT overall speed between 1000MHZ and 1500MHZ for stability reasons. I personally keep it just in the middle at 1225 (5x245) which is solid so far.

Here is a fellow speaking about his experience while playing with HT on m2n32:

An here is a link that I found very informative about how phenoms behave and different than athlons while overclocking:
