i like the blue accents of the III, and think it might make me want to go with a blue setup next... who knows red memory sticks + red gpu + red fans still look good with the am3 red accents /w black background!


--- EZ FLASH QUESTION ----
i wanted to ask how i can ez flash my bios without a thumb drive..im about to smoke again, so i doubt ill find it when i come back

is there any way i can use a cd?

Well, the blue goes perfect with the watercooling setup i have now, everythings blue, but i wanted to go red and black with the new case. i think it will be sick when i do it.

EDIT: wow murder grammar there, fixed tho

It seems like when people get the red tubes it looks cheesy from the pictures, but I'm sure it doesn't look as cheap and orangish that I think they are in person!

i know what you mean, but i may not actually use red tubes, i might just get the red dye fluid and have to clean the blocks every six months(doesnt bother me, i like working on my computer!!: )

Why do they look cheesy?

been there, done that. Im sorry but the coloured tubing looks 100x better than the coloured coolant. at thats my opinion.

hmm, i might have to physically look at the tubing then. Since i have seen tubing that "red" look more of a "reddish-orange" color. Also what tubing are you using there?
post #1047 of 1767
wow that red tubin looks great now that i just came back from a good smoke sleepy time soon or BC2..who's down?


but before we do that may i get some help? im worried about my memory..i'm trying to get stable, but it's not working out

34*C ambient, 33*C idle (I'll get you load time's tomorrow.. I know it's important..but I doubt it's temp.. I get BSODs..but not sure about this time.. it crashed 30 min into prime 95... my memory is cl7 or cl8 (they claim that now?) 1600MHz 7-8-7-24-2N (wth is 2n?).. I'm running it at 1100Mhz 7-7-7-20-27-1T (all auto timings, but I set volts to 1.65v). The SPD in CPU-Z reads different volts for this timing, 1.5v. Should I lower my voltage then?

My CPU 206*19 3914MHZ @ 1.45v - CPU VDDA Volt 2.55v
My NB is 2472MHz, and my CPU/NB is 1.34v.
All other volts are auto... I think my Load Line Calibration is disabled and the overvault is set on auto (I think).

Any ideas?

Sorry if that was hard to read, haha. it was hard to type



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
MORE TO READ <3
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Phenom X4 965BE C3 (3.4GHz @ 1.4v stock)
7-8-7-24-2N 1600 2x2GB 1.6v G.Skill Ripjaws (8-8-8-24 for AMD systems I guess)
Asus Crosshair III Formula
OCZ ModXStream Pro 700w


I am 20 runs stable @ 3.99GHz (19*210) 1.52v.
36*C ambient
33*C idle
59*C load
(I believe my NB was around 2000MHz, and memory I'm not sure)

Usually when I do IntelBurn runs @ high.. I go for 20 runs, and my memory/NB is at stock settings or auto along with voltages. If I do run along a problem it would be a GSOD (Grey).. like a fuzzy one.

This time my sig is running at:

4.0GHz (16*250) @ 1.52v
Auto memory timings @ 1000MHz 6-6-6-15-20-1T (auto volts, I think 1.6v)
NB frequency is 2,500MHz @ auto voltage (not sure what it is).
My CPU/NB frequency is 1.43v (1.42v just failed on me on previous BSOD).
My ambient today is the same as the 3.99GHz test four months ago (and I know my NB freq is higher and timings are tigther..but running at a lower frequency).

I just ran IntelBurn @ high and failed after the third test.. I was at 59*C Load.. so I had room until 65*C (I don't want to even go that high, but just for a quick benchmark it would be nice to be stable at 4GHz).

The problem is this time I didn't get a GSOD.. I got a BSOD, any ideas? This must be a NB or memory setting issue, right?! If it is... should I run Prime95 Small FFT for 6-10 hours and see if my NB frequency is stable at the clock? If it fails what should I do, or should I run memtest86+?

Any ideas? I'm not sure about vdroop.. I have it disabled.

if it helps you, I know I had to push more volts into my memory with more fsb. With stock fsb @200 I can run my mem around 1.85v. When I pushed my fsb to 300 only way I could pass intel burn was to push my mem to 1.964v with everything else being same.

Not sure if that helps or not.

What is your memory rated at?

Thanks + rep

Ok so I'm posting three times in a row..this time will be a charm:


Crashed in Prime95 Blend pretty early, and I didn't get to see if it was a BSOD.. or what kind of error..or if it's a temp problem (which at my settings I really doubt)!

FSB 205
PCI E Freq 100 (is this worth changing btw?)
CPU Ratio 18.5
DRAM Freq 1640
CPU/NB Freq 2255
HT Link Freq 2050

So my CPU is just under 3.8GHz @ 1.387V, and it passed 20 runs of IntelBurn @ High (Ambient 33*C - Idle 31*C - Load 51*C)

CPU/NB Volts 1.3375 (this was on auto, but I noticed on auto it was at 1.42volts & that was more than my CPU volts..so I toned it down manually).
NB Volts was at 1.1 auto (but I set it to 1.113 manually).

My memory settings are 7-8-7-24-2T @ 1.6V 1644MHz (1600 DDR3), but since I got a BSOD running prime95 Blend again... I changed it to 8-8-8-24-2T 1600MHz...

in order to switch from 1644 -> 1600MHz.. I changed my FSB to 200, and my multiplier to 19. So now I'm exactly at 3.8GHz.


Any ideas on how I can get stable?

Also here are some BIOS settings, maybe you can tell me what to put if it's at a bad setting.

DRAM CONTROLLER CONFIG
Channel Interleaving - XOR of Address bit
Enabled Clocks to all DIMMs - Enabled
MemCLK Tristate C3/ATLVID - Disabled
Memory Hole Remmaping - Enabled
DCT Ungaged Mode - Auto
Power Down Enable - Disabled
DCQ Maximum Bypass Counter - Auto
Bank Swizzle Mode - Enabled

CPU CONFIG

Micro Updation - Enabled
Secure Virtual Machine Mode - Enabled

Extreme OV - Enabled (should I disable this?)
("When set to enable you might chose high level voltage overclock but not guaranteed CPU life")
CPU Load Line Calibration - Enabled
("Disabled: The CPU voltage has 50mV droop with loadline")
("Enabled: The CPU voltage will be kept without loadline")


Any ideas? My temps seem fine to me.. 34*C ambient, 31*C idle..and in Prime95 Blend.. I don't go over 50*C.
