Hello all, new to the forums, have read a lot of good info here, but have a question that I have not been able to find an answer too.

I have an Asus Crosshair III Formula Mobo running the 1403 Bios. I also have 8GB of G.SKILL Ripjaws Series(4 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL.

Now to my understanding this is supposed to be running at 1600Mhz. I check the Bios and its running at 1333Mhz.

When I change it to 1600 it will reboot after showing the windows logo, and or give me a BSOD. I tried to up the voltage, and it ran fine just idling for about 10 minutes before a BSOD.

Question is, has any one run into similar problems that can recommend a solution? Cause I feel I may be missing something to get my RAM to run at its advertised 1600Mhz.


Well finaly got my Ram running stable at 1600Mhz, had to adjust the timings from 9-9-9-24 to 7-9-7-24 with the voltage uped to 1.65v from 1.5. Been running stable for 24+ hours, getting ready to try my hand at OCing the CPU.

God I love this motherboard.

hi boomer, if you place your memory on the voltage thats on your chip 1st and then boot, then restart again and just change your timings one by one. i had this prob on the gigabyte board i got at the min and my kingston 1066 couldnt get it past 800

playing around got this finally stable will try for higher speed but I think i might be maxed at 3.6 with this fsb due to temps, I'm maxing out at 61c during burn in with 60 being more or less the temp

SO also maybe some warning should be in order to people who are using stock fan/paste unless this was only my fault somehow

but I repasted using arctic silver 5 and almost frkn broke my processor taking off stock heatsink. apparently the stock paste glued my proc onto the heatsink so that when removing it I actually "ripped" oout my proc from the socket bending 4-6 pins in the process. Boy was I pissed and almost out a proc. luckily I was able to take a nail filer and use the smooth tip to gently, very gently bend the pins back and no probs yet (about 2 weeks since)

Hm... so i can't restart or post, even though stablility passed, unless i set my Ht to 2100 (from 2400)...

Though I cant take my proc out of the socket when I tried before putting in the heatsink again......

Mind posting exact voltages for NB, HT, CPU/NB etc that you used for this run? We have exactly the same setup except for I have an aftermarket HS on mine. Im interested to see if a) I can duplicate and b) if I can run the same FSB with a higher OC.

The same happened to my x2 6000+ I spent 2 hours bending back 2.5 rows of pins to get it down in the socket again:S pain in the a%#
anyways
I was wondering, why are you overclocking your bus speed like that^^

The performance gain in overclocking the FSB and the HT link is
practically nothing compared to overclocking the CPU.

Rather underclock the HT and get more OC on the CPU
for performance gain... That is my experience anyways
on the am2/am2+ plattform, I don`t think the AM3 is
radically changed on that point(correct me if Im wrong)

*curious*

To get most performance I would set the ht link to 2000 or even less,
use the cpu multiplier and find out what speed that doesnt work and bring it down 0.5x
and then adjust the FSB up abit to find the sweet spot and then u can mess
with Mr volt

my cpu is set @ 1.30v, mem @ 1.96 rest on auto...

the higher the fsb the better over all system performance, or so I thought? though i do think the ht is maxed out at 2k or so but still trying to read up on this , but basically the higher the fsb you can get it will increase your memory performance, you vid card and any other things that are controlled by the fsb....

That was a low cpu voltage.... stock is around 1.4v

Well, u can do an experiment: Run 3dmark06 with your current settings,
and compare it with my method maxxing cpu oc.

And you can ofc bench the memory in sisoft sandra etc.

But since u called your comp for pavo gaming and use a 5870 gpu
I would belive your after best overall gaming performance.

And I`m pretty sure u would achieve that with highest possible stable
OC on the CPU/GPU. That is were the performance gain is,
OC`ing the memory and tightening the timings helps a bit (but not much)

I see little or no performance gain in overclocking the HT, only stability
problems. The same with the FSB.

OC`ing the the FSB had much more impact on earlier platforms, now I can
only see little or no improvement in performance.

Edit: Just noticed u got the c3 revision of the 965be which stocks at 1.3125v? (correct me if Im wrong) still early in Norway

its 1.25 v actually, or at least i can run it at stock at 1.25 and this is running fine with 1.30 for my little oc.

and ya i get way better scores ocing my fsb than just by the multiplier. this current set up with my gpu @ 900/1200 gives me a score of 20047 3dmark06 while my score with a 3.9 ghz oc with just multiplier gives me a 21k score. my mem is always set @ 1600 with 7-7-7-20-1t. I tried 6-6-6-18-1t but im scared to up my voltages over 2 with stock cooling so I cant get it stable .
