Normally it does affect your overclock. im no expert, but from what i know is that it underclocks the processor and lowers the voltages for it to run "cool and quiet".

People usually disable this feature.
Spot on there, if its enabled and your cpu is idle it will drop your cpu down to about 800mhz, and also then lower your vcore. Its the very first thing to change if you are going to overclock.


I played around with my memory timings last night and the best i could get was

6-7-5-15-1t which i think is pretty good. any suggestions on how to lower it further. the 5 and 15 cannot go lower (i dont have the option of 4 or 14) but i would like to drop the other 2 by 1 to get 5-6-5-15. can it be done??? i cant boot at 5-7-5-15 or 6-6-5-15. have i got it as low as i can go???

I am currently running it at 1450 odd and was tightening my timings at 1333.

I will post screens in about 2 hours. btw im running my NB at 2760 odd and booting, restating perfectly on 1401 bios. was the problem only after 2800? or was it 2600 which i think it was.

huh
have been running it for about 12 hours now and well when it needs full power it goes right back up to 1.4v and 3.8ghz and stays there when in use. ill let it run for a little longer and test it during gaming and whatnot and post back... but it does let my pc idle at lower temps (about 2 degrees cooler Celsius from 31-32 idle to 28-29idle)

That's already pretty tight in my opinion, im not really big on memory overclocking as i've notice almost no difference other than the required timings by the manufacturer. You can only see it when your benching, in real world usage you cant really tell.

have you tried bumping the voltage by just a notch?

Wow thats pretty good. what multiplier are you on 15x? and whats your vcore?

Hey guys, i'm new here and I'm looking for memory opinions.

Right now I've got some corsair dominator, 1600MHz, 1.65v and 8-8-8-24 timings. One of the sticks is bad though, so I need to RMA them... I don't know if i should just get a replacement or look for something else. I want to have something that will be compatible with the motherboard.

Should I go for those CL6 Mushkins?? I don't know if they're 'officially' compatible because mushkin doesn't list the Crosshair III on their website and I can't use their forum.

Whats my best option?
