Not sure what you have but try CPU-NB @ 1.4-1.45v and NB @ 1.25-1.30v

Also, what slots are in? Blue or Black? I've noticed that Blue like tighter timings and Black likes a little higher frequency's.

And have you tried turning OFF Bank interleaving in the Dram settings down at the bottom?

Im running 1.3v on my CPU-NB also running off the blue slots ill try what you suggested in a minute
post #1294 of 9641
Put those guys in the Black slots. Closest to the CPU socket will render tighter timings. 1.3v for the CPU-NB is stock. When running higher Ram Speed and Or Tighter timings that will put a bit more stress on the IMC and it will need a bit more power. I would just set it to 1.4 and be done with it. That and mocing the ram should be the ticket...

Well, I'm off to saw some logs. I'll be back in the morning to check the results of your tweaks and the move...

Hi mate,

I have been reading your posts (along with dir d) and interesting reading on the ram timings.

I wondered if you could share with me what I need to change in the bios to set the timings up. I know its a lot of trial and error and tbh I don't need the tightest timimgs ever - just a slight improvement would be good.

Could you just type a quick one on what options to change in my bios for me plaese - would be much appreciated..

Thanks

PJ

Well i tried again and I failed again. CPU-NB 1.45v, NB 1.3v, RAM CAS7@1600 7-9-9-24 1.9v, Put the RAM in the Black Slots and turned off Bank interleaving...Still no boot at CAS7, this RAM hates me haha. One thing that was wierd was instead the Screen not getting a signal and just sitting there, with the RAM in the black banks it actually auto cleared my CMOS and put everything back to stock. I tried it 4 times every single time that it wouldnt boot it auto cleared the CMOS. So for now i went back to 8-8-6-15@1.6v

Black,

The HS for that 720 Should be the same as the rest of Phenom II HS. They're all the same chip and I believe that they use the same Hs for them all. That's pretty standard from my knowledge...

Dir D,

I can almost bet that the voltage for your Dram will need 1.8v. try it. It's not going to kill the Ram. My ram's MFR specs say 2.0-2.05v and I've taken it all the way up to 2.4v and it's still fine. Just make sure that it's still within touchable temps. .15-.20v above specs is not a going to fry your Ram unless it's cheap and that's not cheap Ram. There's a Big Difference between Cheap Ram and inexpensive Ram... Try 1.77v at least! If only one core is failing then it's the IMc that needs more volts through the Dram voltage... If it take a like ten minutes for one core to fail on Blend with 1.77v, 1.80 will do the trick. Remember that once you hit stability, you can then wokr down the voltage slowly. It's called "low-volt bunrin in" You ower the volts a little bit a time running Prime95 for a while each time that you ower the volts to burn in that, speed with lower volts...

Remember that 1600 is an OC for the AM3 Standard of 1333Mhz so you will need above normal volts. It's the truth. but no worries. You'll be fine. trust me. I've beat the crap out of some cheap Ram before, that lived. Those sticks can handle it!

Thanks but I wanted to know if anyone on the GD70 had a 8x PCIe Raid card and had a crossfire setup. Does the board default to 16x 8x 8x or would it just go to 8x 8x 8x 8x even though the last lane isn't used?
post #1299 of 9641
In response to the 1.4-1.45 CPU-NB I would not really recomend it as I found it bumped my temps quite a bit and is prob what fried my 720 BE's IMC

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

Riskitall84: Glad to see you popping in hows i7 treating you?

Yea its goin good mate part from a dead dimm slot!!!!

Like what ya done with the thread! Knew you were the man for the job
post #1300 of 9641
Dir d,

I will be honest that seems a little wierd to me. Have you noticed any change in Bootup time when it does boot? One thing that I did experience with this board was that the MSI logo screen at boot held for a max of 2 seconds when I first got the board. Suddenly after the first 2 months it started holding for 4 seconds. I didn't really think anything of it until I started having more issues with my Ram. Erros, BSoD's And here's what tipped me off on the Problem....

I could change my tRP settings below 8. And when the MSI logo screen start holding for longer, I realized after a couple of hours of trying to get the tRP to go below eight and failing, that there was something wrong. I tried to do a BIOS update and got the ROMID Mismatch and didn't realize that it would brink the board. I RMA'd the board and they ttold me that there were a couple of broken circuits on the board.

Low and behold, I got the board back and was able to change tRP setting below 8 once again. So it might be something to look into with MSI because that doesn't sound right that you can't get 7-7-7-24 with your Ram.

Can you try to hit 7-7-7-24-31 @ 1333Mhz? If you can't then I would be calling either MSI or GSkill... Did you try setting your CPU, CPU-NB and HT all to stock speeds and still keep the 1.4v on the CPU-NB? Becuase if you haven't and you have the others OCed, it will be harder to hit the CL7 at 1600MHz.

My Ram is Rated at 2000MHz 8-8-8-30 @ 2.0v You not being able to hit 7-7-7-24 @ 1333Mhz with stock timings of 9-9-9-24, is like me not being able to hit 6-6-6-30 @ 1600Mhz, which I can and also get 5-5-5-21-26 @ 1333Mhz - 1475MHz+ with these sticks.


pij,

What are your current setting for everything.
CPU frequency (FSB and Multi) and Voltage
CPU-NB (FSB and Multi) frequency and Voltage
HT Speed (FSB and Multi) and Voltage
NB Voltage
Dram Frequency, Timings and Voltage


Riskitall,

I have had my CPU-NB Voltage as high as 1.65v and my CPU is still going to strong. I wouldn't suggest keeping it there Unless you have some rediculous cooling. You are right that Heat will kill things but some should be warned to use "Extra" cooling on applicable areas before bumping volts to high. A mild bump of .10-.15 isn't that bad. Shoot, ASUS S939 boards used .125 voltage increments.

Eatra Cooling Example:
I used the Stock AMD AM3 HS fan mounted to my Mosfet/NB HS. I also use my old Dualie Toledo's Stock HS fan on the southbridge with a bracket that I fabricated. Both are spinning at 3k rpm's. Pushing at least 80cfm's. I'm not sure whatt he specs are on those fans. COuld find out if anyone's interested though...

Anyway, why did you succume to the Dark side? lol- You left us! Obi Wan may have died (actually killed) but he still visited Luke from time to time... )
