You've got things going well !! Only thing I can recommend [am I am sure you are already trying...
] ..is higher FSB and mem speeds..at your current timings. Didnt see what PL you were running.. you hit 5 yet over 450mhz FSB?
You know whats crazy with the WAZA for my 1M? If I wait till almost the end, or try to catch it at the very end my times stay about the same. But If I hit PI go at about 1/4-1/3 of the way through copy I can knock off 3/10+ a little sometimes.Its always been my understanding that you wait till its just finished to hit it? It hangs PI and then it will lay 4 or 5 calc's down at once..
I'm just cruising on this ram right now CL, I'm a PL of 6,tRFC-35 and tRD-8, at 4-4-4-12-3...Just running 1:1 with my daily 470x10 with a 2.1 v-dimm, I want to burn it in a little before I push it much. I had to order them from Ireland so RMA times would kill me right now. All I have besides the Team that is any good is a set of 2x512 GKX FireStix, and they aren't very highly binned, I'm lucky to get a 475-500Mhz max at decent latencies with a 2.3 v-dimm.
My Team ProMos IC's I can do a 5-5-5-15-5 at a 5:6, as fast as I've had those I believe was around a 620-630, somewhere around that, there rated for a 6-6-6-18 @ 650Mhz..But with them you just cant tighten timings much...Hopefully if this D9GKX is like my old Ballistix set I can do a 4-4-4-12-4 up to around 600Mhz, Man that was a good set of the old fat ones..
..Ran for a good year and a half before the 2.3 v-dimm killed them, good stuff there..
I've been up all night trying to get a fast disk set-up, its more trouble then the OC'ing..
..I'm using a Lite xp Pro and I'm just not getting over about 2/10s faster on 1M then I get on Vista. I'll take it, but I was expecting better, I'm headed back to play with it again in a minute.
Have you tried using a "Ram Disk", I'm having so-so results with it to. Practice makes perfect I hope...
AWESOME pi run man and as for the memory they are pure sexyness congrats again and keep up the great work
Well Thank You!!! There even sexier when I flip them up and see that double sided GKX goodness..
..I love the stuff!!!
For real, that's a nice PI run
Can't wait to see what these new sticks can do
Thanks!!! I'll push them soon, I hope, when I get that DI pot on my chip..
..I'm just cruising right now, I'm a firm believer in burning in chips a little bit slow, trust me I want to push them pretty badly right now...
