HT -- 2Ghz @ auto v
RAM -- 1333Mhz @ 7-7-7-24-33-1t-1.65v

So far it's not giving me any trouble in Windows. I ran IntelBurn Test on std for 5 runs and it was fine, so I'm going to see how it is in Windows for a bit, and maybe I'll run a couple of hours of Prime sm fft's, tweak it if needed to stabilize.

The next thing I'm going to do is keep those settings and try the RAM at rated speeds - 1600Mhz 7-7-7-24-33-1t-1.65v, maybe I'll end up bumping the volts a bit. Once this is stable, then ...

I'll try upping the NB, and see how it goes. Then I can get back to pushing up the CPU again.

This seems to be going well right now, hopefully she doesn't blow up next month!

I'll keep you posted to how it goes.

k I may try this method who knows.
BTW Marc would you be willing to do some ram benches with me, using everest 5.3? All I really want to do is have use both at the same speeds, only difference being the ram timmings to see what the difference is.

yeah I checked the beta bios's and noticed that as well. only reason I say we may be close to a new release is that they are running out of 1.7x numbers and will soon be on 1.8 betas.

Nice mduclow!

I'm on 1.6 and have tried up to 1.7b3. That does make sense though E....

That Ram test will give the tighter timings the gold medal for sure!

Sure, just let me know what to do. I'm not even sure I've downloaded Everest, much less used it.

BTW, 3.9 @ 1.445 rebooted in Windows on Prime sm fft's after about 80 mins. I came in to check on it, and it had rebooted, after checking the log, it ran about 80 mins.

So, I've bumped the volts to 1.455, although I had no issues whatsoever in Windows @ 1.445, I even rendered 100 .ARW files into .jpg's with Lightroom, saving them to the desktop, which hits the cores pretty good, and it had no problem, so I think 1.455 might be pretty close to it.

Let me know Eclipse

[QUOTE=Mastiffman;7493265]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

STOCK,STOCK, STOCK... on 1.4 bios....

Only built a few days ago and not changed anything in the bios apart from running ram at 1:4 to get 1600mhz. My thoughts were to get my ram timings set up then overclock my cpu.

Thanks man

Hello all,
I'm new to the forum. I was just wondering what settings and performance I can expect on a 955BE on a good air cooler (Zalman 9700). I am still at stock as I just built my system last night. I had stability issues with 8GB of G.Skill RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231189
I finally got it to work by lowering the memory speed to 1066 down from 1333. So any recommendations with my RAM and just overclocking this machine in general would be much appreciated!
