I remember switching the performance awhile ago, but it must have reset at some point. I even put a bit of an overclock on it, but that is about as much as I am getting at this point, though I'm going to keep trying some different sets.



Now, as you may notice from the memory area, there are two different manufacturers. OcZ and Corsair. The Corsair memory is my newest set of memory. Those are TWIN2X4096-8500C5D memory sticks. The other two are 1GB sticks that I am using in the other two Dual Channel slots for the time being...

They are all currently running at the same time with a 428.7 Mhz (1:2) speed, for a total for of 6GB RAM. Now, these two new sticks of RAM support EPP profiles. From previous research, I found out that DDR2-1066 RAM is supported by the motherboard, but only after a older BIOS update, but that it would only work with Phenom processors. These EPP profiles are to allow a proper speed for that type of RAM.

Well, I bought a few of these sticks, put them in, changed the voltage to the native 2.1v, changed the DDR2 speed to DDR2-1066 and finally changed the EPP profile to High Frequency (which is supposed to run the DDR2-1066 sticks are stable full speed). After that locked my computer up, I have to hard reset the BIOS and then tried the Optimal setting, which didn't work either. After I reset the BIOS again, nothing would work. So, I finally just put those two other sticks in and now I'm running a normal 6GB configuration at the speed mentioned above. It should also be mentioned that I also left the speed at Auto and tried plenty of different combination's to get it working, and nothing worked..

Anyone have any idea on what is going or how to fix it? Greatly appreciated, and thank you for the previous help!
Well IIRC 1066 is not really supported on AMD systems as it is overclocked ram settings but can be used on higher end AM2+ mobo's w/the right BIOS and CPU's.

However most Overclockers w/older AM2/AM2+ systems need more headway for overclocking thus the need for DDR2-1066. i.e. you use DDR2-1066 sticks at DDR2-800 and bump up your FSB to about 250ish and get closer to 1066 or even faster depending on your skills .

I have 4x2GB Corsair XMS2 just like what you got but w/out the D on the end of the C5 and I run mine rock solid all day and night at DDR2-1013 w/all 4 ram slots populated.

If you want to run 1066 speeds then try to use just 2 sticks of ram. You may also need to play around w/the configurations of where you put the ram. i.e. try different ram slots until you figure out what works best.

It will be nearly impossible to run all 4 ram slots populated at 1066 speeds.

Here is what I get from my RAM http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1226067

I just recently started using CnQ/C1E FTW.

@MeBecomingI: Look at and study Wriceth's overclock and you will see what he is doing to achieve DDR2-1100.

@Wriceth: Great work. Nice OC and well you know what they say. Proof or it never happened

Brought down the voltages as was not being down as appropriate via the 5002 bios.

Replaced 4000+ with this yesterday after upped the bios to 5002.



Stable. Now going to throw the kitchen sink at it and see if it stays that way. Update to follow.

People, no one knows how many must return a card GTS250 in 3dmark06 under phenom 9850 + m2n32-sli deluxe? And the 11500 points is normal, or a little? Kind of like card should give 15000 points...

Awesome! It seems like I was doing just that even before I saw that post! Nice to have confirmation. However, unfortunately for me, he seems to be able to push his overclock much higher than me. Good job Wriceth!

Without further ado, here is my current overclock and configuration:



As you can see, I've achieved a much higher speed with my memory, but it still isn't where it could be. I also can't get any higher than 239Mhz bus speed, even if it is 13x, 13.5x, 14x or anything else. I've got a high voltage going through the CPU, and I've also upped the voltage of the RAM (2.1v), CPU -> NB (1.425) and NB -> SB (1.4v). It still doesn't budge any further, and Windows just stops working. I should also be able to reduce some of those timings as well, but I'll hold off until I can get a bit higher with the speed.

I'm sure there is a hold up somewhere, but I can't seem to find it and I'm concerned about pushing anymore voltage. In fact, I might need to drop it. There has to be something holding me back. I'm starting to think it is my HT speed. I notice that is a almost a full 100 Mhz faster than Wriceth, so I'm thinking that the difference is causing some instability. It seems like I can change that in the System Tools, but I'm not sure if that is going to affect my CPU bus speed. Could that possibly be the cause?

I could drop the CPU multiplier to a lower value, but that won't help increase my bus speed, and I end up sitting right near the standard 3200 Mhz speed.

However, I'm happy that my RAM sticks are working. Thank you for the input. I didn't even think of running the sticks in DDR2 800 and just overclocking them... It makes sense, especially when the sticks are designed to run at 1066.

Well, any further help would be greatly appreciated and I want to thank you all for the help! Awesome!

@MeBecomingI

Try dropping yout HT multiplier to x4 and you should be good

The highest i can get my HT is 1200Mhz (300x4) but i try 2 keep
it between 1000-1100Mhz as it it seems to run more stable.

Yours and Wriceth posts have made me want to push my ram
now lol, so im gonna do some oc'ing and i'll post results later.

Cool. I'll give that a shot and see how it goes! Thanks!

And good luck with your overclock! I hope for the best.
