@N2Gaming

Ok, did now benchmark for both. Ganged and Unganged at 240FSB.

Interesting... Unganged lowers reading bandwidth for both, system memory AND L3 cache. It sets the L3 also to unganged mode?

See the attachments.

About NB/L3 tweaking i have to say: Although the better L3 affects CPU benchmarks only marginal and core clocks do this proportional to clock, i have by the L3 improvement much faster response times at overall computer handling. The "feeling" speed in Windows is much improved, much more than by my core clock OC from 3GHz to 3.6GHz.

uweFR, is the second screen shot "unganged"? Your memory read speeds went up quite a bit. Interesting results

modes are shown on the screenshot "memory type".
Ganged is faster for both DDR2 AND L3 cache.

uweFR, thanks for the clarification. I should give "ganged" mode a try. Currently I'm running my set in "unganged" mode and I'm getting about 9400MB/s Memory Read in the Everest benchmark. I'll try and remember to post my results tonight here

Thanks again!

So, I continued to mess with mine, because what seemed stable with quick tests, went unstable in 9-22 hours. This is my final (I'm not messing with it anymore!) setup. It turns out with my Phenom 9850 BE, overclocking the memory much more then this causes the memory to error out after a while. This is stable with Prime95 after 24 hours running it. (I might try bumping the multiplier up one more time eventually, but I'm going to get some good gaming in on this setup and see if I notice any framerate issues or anything first)

TheReaper521, looks great. Were just trying to go for a solid overclock with minimal voltage increases? Overclocing with 4 sticks of memory is not easy. Good job

Good luck
