Yeah I don't like the lights in my comp, so have all of them off on my Crosshair.

So...would 8-8-8-24-1T be decent timings on 1600mhz DDR3? I've tried tightening them some more, but just goes unstable.

I would say that that is average. Have you tried upping the voltage when tightening?
I think anything CL7 and under is pretty good at 1600

i was finally able to get my system stable with the actual rated timings 9-9-9-24 at 1.8v i also increased my NB freq to 2400Mhz. For some reason it seemed to lock up 5 mins into any activity in windows prior to the NB change. Ty Tyberias and Pavo


PS: looking for some input about my NB change to 2400mhz, was it neccesary? its currently runs 50c load.

It seems that the NB Clock increases do add to stability with the C3 revision PII's. There is a post somewhere (I can't seem to find it right now) by a Mushkin RAM rep that stated your NB Clock should be at or above your RAM speed * 1.5. So 1600 MHz RAM should run at a 2400 MHz NB Clock.

Also, as you OC the CPU, upping your NB Clock can lend some additional stability. I couldn't get stable to save my life at 4.0 GHz @ 2500 NB Clock, but as soon as I increased my NB Clock to 2750, I was stable.

Yeah, NB clock gives you a lot of stability, it's also instantly recognizable. I've got mine running at 2600mhz. Also, I have got my RAM down to 7-8-7-24-1T. I can't post with all 7s, but oh well. I can see a slight difference in benches with the two 7s. I really don't want to increase the voltage, as it's already a bit higher than the RAM is rated for. It's at 1.75v, rated for 1.65v

If you don't mind my asking, why do you need 6-Cores? At least, at the moment, there is very little that would take advantage of the added cores. For most intensive purposes, there is little actual NEED for a quad-core.

Performance. Better Scores on Benchmarks, such as 3dMark Vantage..
