If you were to shoot for 4.50 GHz with my sig rig, then what settings would you change?

Vbp6us, I'm amazed that you can run your 800MHz ram with those timings at that speed (966MHz). Those are some excellent sticks if they can run like that without errors.

And a couple of questions for anyone who has an EP45-UD3P in one of the CoolerMaster CM 690 II cases. How well does the cpu retention plate bracket hole line up with the cpu socket on one of these boards?

I've never used a case with the sideways hard drive cages. How well do they cool the drives compared to the standard drive cages? From looking at the pics it would seem that they wouldn't cool the drives all that well, but I've been surprised in the past and figure I would ask someone with first hand knowledge. I will be using 4 or 5 of the bays if that makes any difference. I'm interested in getting a new case as I really don't like the CM Centurian V I am using now all that much.

I tried 4.50 GHz by raising the vCore to around 1.36V, CPU Term at 1.32V, PLL at 1.65V, MCH Core at 1.30V, and the temp sensor in the BIOS showed a core temperature of 88°C.

So, maybe I need better cooling if I want 4.50 GHz - like perhaps water cooling or something.

Well, I guess it could explain the lock-ups I was having in the BIOS and also at the POST. When I put it back down to 4.0 GHz using the settings I posted, it goes back down to showing the very low 30's.

But hey - I still want to try 4.50 GHz because I admit that I find it hard to believe that it was really that hot. Perhaps it's a memory incompatibility issue which means I need the latest BIOS. Or, it's just because I don't know what I'm doing.

So I still want help.

Thanks for any input.

i too just installed my new GA-EP45-UD3P with a Q9650. im a bit moe modest in my initial hopes and am only aiming for 4Ghz, (the speed i used to run my E8500).

ive updated the bios, loaded optimized settings,disabled all managment/c1 etc, setup ram, vcore to 1.3.

everything else is auto.

i can run necessary FSB of 445mhz with multi x7 in prime blend enough for to know it can do it. but i cant boot it at 9x.

ive tried some different changes and was able to get into windows, but prime fails almost right away.

thing is its all a bit new to me having all these new settings, as i come from simple P5N-D bios (too basic).

i have understanding of concepts though, just looking to find out from people in the know, what are the key settings i need to be adjusting.

You shouldn't set your voltages to auto
I've got a link to setting up UD3* voltages in my sig. It'll explain what each option does and give some more in depth info on the board.

Also, with a higher multi, you need a higher vcore.

My Antec P160 was one of the first to have that type of drive cage.

If anything, the drives are actually cooler, because they present more surface area to the intake fans. Provided your fans are lined up correctly, you should be better off.

The one thing to make sure of is that you still have adequate airflow to the intake of your graphics card. The drives can block this airflow if you don't position them accordingly. One of the reasons I went from three down to two drives in my case was to improve this, but unlike mine, I the CoolerMaster has a front 140mm fan, so that should help as well.

Another benefit of the hard drives being mounted sideways is the direction of the airflow: to exaggerate what I mean, imagine if your hard drive is 2 feet long, but only 4 inches wide. Now imagine the efficiency of the heat dissipation as the air travels the entire length of the hard drive. While imagining this, let's pretend the entire length is producing heat, as opposed to only a portion of it producing more heat than the rest. Obviously, the air gets warmed as it passes over the entire 2-foot length.

But now let's turn this sideways against a 2-foot wide fan (again, I'm exaggerating on purpose). Now the air only has to blow over a 4 inch surface that's 2 feet wide! The heat dissipation is dramatically increased and the cooling is much more efficient because now it only has to travel over a 4-inch surface!

And so it is with HDDs: since they're rectangular, it's best to turn them sideways so that there's less time for the air to warm up as it reaches the other side of the hard drive, furthest away from the fan. There's less time for that air to warm up as it passes over it, thereby increasing the efficiency of the heat dissipation.

But for me, I just prefer how much easier it is to remove and install hard drives when they're mounted sideways.

its a good guide and id read it yesterday, and tried following it, i got as far as being able to boot into windows, but prime fails straight away, it plays BC2 for a bit then it died, (but it was sooo smooth).

i guess ill try it again and then post my settings if i cant get stable.

one thing though i might clarify this part:

Quote:
45nm = 1.2v for 333 and +.1 for every 75-100 FSB more
am im going from:
333 -> 445 is +112mhz fsb and ~ +.1 fsbv
or
1333 -> 1780 is +447mhz fsb and ~ +.4 fsbv

thanks
