post #1241 of 9641
Well i decided to do some NB testing..CPU at 3.6ghz 1.4v(auto) and 2.6ghz NB @1.3v.. Passed Prime95 blend for 4hours after that i decided it was stable. tried to up the voltage and try 2.8ghz it wouldnt even post. so right now im at CPU 3.6Ghz@1.4v(auto), NB 2.6Ghz@1.3 and Ram 8-8-6-20@1.6v(auto) Full load 51C. Should i stick with this RipJaw RAM which is rated 9-9-9-24@1.5 1600 or get this RipJaw Ram http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231303

I would try and tighten the timmings on the Ram you have. If not there is a kit which I had on my GD70

Tight timings at 1.65 Volts. These kicked ass for me

[QUOTE=BlackOmega;7486553]You're welcome. I think on the first page of this thread is an AM3 overclocking guide that you'll probably want to read before delving any further into OCing. I'm sure it'll help you understand what needs to be done in order to get the most out of your rig.

Good Luck



Mate,

If I set up exacly the same in the bios.. it should be good right??.. only difference being is that I have ripjaw mem as oppossed to ocz...

This is as low as it will boot...it will not go down to CAS7 no matter what at 1600. it will at 1333 but 1333 CAS7 is about equal to 1600 CAS8

What frequency is your RAM at?

Well that'll give an idea of whats possible but it doesn't mean that you'll achieve the same results. The saying "your mileage may vary" is applicable here.
All hardware components will OC differently even if if you have 2 identical setups. One might be able to achieve 4.0GHz stable with a minor voltage bump where as then other won't be able to get past 3.8 no matter how much voltage you throw at it.


And I was wondering if someone could verify that 1333 is the official limit on the phenom II architecture. I can't seem to get my ram to run stable at any good timings @ 1600. As of now I'm running memtest with my RAM @: 1333 6-5-5-16-1T timings. Once that goes about 4 passes I'm going to see if I can tighten them up any more. And no matter what I do, can't get this RAM to run CAS 5 @ 1333.

I will verify this. Check the specs here. Notice the Astrix in the DDR3 spec list.

Thanks Eclipse, I thought it was the official limit for the IMC on the chip.
I still haven't updated my BIOS. I'll have to do that and see if I can get some better timings @ 1600.

So far so good @ 1333 6-5-5-15-20-1T timings.

Well the RAM that you have is already running at a pretty good speed and it's timed better than factory.( Just out curiosity, what did you use to stability test? ) I don't think the ever so slight performance boost you might get from the faster ram would warrant spending an additional $100 on a new kit of ram well unless you're trying to achieve 1866 or more.
