Eclipseaudio4, well for me I start off with stock sub-timings. If everything passes during testing then I'll bump each individual sub-timing down a bit and re-test. CAS always seems to be the big one that shows performance differences in memory benchmarks. Same goes for the command rate (1T/2T). I've noticed that VDimm is usually required when the memory frequency is overclocked and not using tighter sub-timings.

Good luck

so you usually don't need to bump the Vdimm when lowering sub timings?

Eclipseaudio4, in my experience I've never had to but that doesn't mean you don't have to

Test each individual setting to see what provides the best stability. I usually use the Everest memory benchmark to see if my changes yielded any performance increase.

Good luck

Hey Mike. When trying to get the tightest timings I generally start off w/stock rated timings for the ram in question and then slowly work my way down as follows. 6.6.6.6 / 6.6.6.5 / 6.6.5.5. / 6.5.5.5 / 5.5.5.5 / 5.5.5.4 / 5.5.4.4 and so on and such untill I find the best stable performance.

If you have new ram and a lifetime warranty then you may wish to bump up the Vdimm a bit if your really pushing the ram spd as thlnk3r has suggested. As long as you have some passive cooling over your ram you should be fine w/a .1, .2 or .3 bump in Vdimm voltage.

I know I rode you a coulpel of times about trying 7.7.7.7 ram timings but that is only because I was curious if your ram is capable. I have seen other overclocks w/said timings w/outrageous Everest benchmarks. It is very possible that your ram is not capable of tighter timings or faster spds. You will have to play around w/your ram dividers as well as your FSB/HT to determine what your ram likes best. I know it's a PITA but if your looking for the best all around stable system performance then you have to put in the work. Believe me I Know your no sloutch and have been working on that overclock from day one and your doing a good job thus far. Keep up the good work.

If your really seriouse about your Ram performance then look around in this and other forums at cpuz and everest benchmarks for the best overall OC'n ram. We know you got a nice chip now you prolly just have to do something about the ram. I'm not saying you don't have great ram but you will know soon enough if you persue every option available for squeezing every bit of performance out of them.

Good Luck,

N2G

Thanks,

It is just a 512MB USB memory stick soldered to the USB connector. It is supposed to be used with Vistas "Ready Boost" feature, but given its' tiny size and todays low RAM prices it is pretty much useless. I did find it useful to store BIOS-files on it when I upgrade the BIOS.
I have never actually used the remote control with that board (instead I use it on another system together with LIRC to control a video playback application on Linux).
I do occasionally use the "ScreenDUO" (a small USB-connected LCD screen with a few buttons). There are only a few application for it, which severely limits its usefulness. Too bad, as this is actually a really cool device.

Thank you.
Here is an old CPUZ link for one of my M2N32 dlx boards:

I currrently do not use my Premium Vista board so I will not be be able to provide you with a validation link for it.

N2Gaming, good point. The IC's on my G.Skill set are Hynix D43's and boy those things are a pain to play with when it comes to tighter timings. Honestly these things can't get any tighter then what is advertised at stock hehe

DrSwizz thanks for the Vista Version related info. So I'm guessing that this is VRAM Not DRAM meaning that what ever is stored on it does not get lost when you power off the system? If so that is very usefull for BIOS files.

That's a very nice overclock. Thanks for the validation link.

That's a very nice overclock. Thanks for the validation link.

Thanks for quoting that I missed it.

And I had to put an next to the valid link! Holy cow Nice OC!:

There's more than one test on memtest86+?!

Well I guess I got something to try when I get some free time.
