Cool. From what I remember, me and you have exact same RAM. Mushkin 996659... I might try those timings. I couldn't get them stable anything lower than 9-9-9 tho... But if 7-7-7 wasn't much better, then there's no loss. I'm doing 9-9-9-27-36 just to get rig oging good and stable for sure, and I'll slowly tune them in. What effects would 8-9-9-27-35 have? Or maybe 9-9-8, or 9-8-9? I'm not sure on timings relations with each other completely. And too impatient to thoroughly test.

Happy belated birthday.

No offense taken. I wasn't planning on using that cooler for very long anyway.

Took apart my rig about 2 days ago in an effort to make a custom bracket for my lapped Big Typhoon and realized that in a certain orientation I could use it no problems. So once that was established I took the 720 out and lapped it. Temps are BEAUTIFUL now.

Unlocked the 4th core only to find out the IMC is bad. O well no harm, no foul.

Here's a screen shot of my lapping results.




BTW, what is stock NB voltage?

yeah I have the same issues lately. I could not get anything faster then 9-9-9-21-1t (with others set) @ 1600. I was able to get 7-7-7-18-1t @ 1333 but it was slower

As far as the relations I cant OC ram for crap!

nice job!

What are your load temps, and ambient?

NB 1.2 IIRC CPU-NB depends I think.

I'm not trying to OC them, just trying to tighten them up as best as possible without instability. I read a review on them that they can do 6-6-6-18 at 1.95v at 1333, but I couldn't post, lol. I also tried 8-8-8-24 at 1333 and BSOD immediately in Windoze, AND I tried all stock 205mhz fsb, and no post, not even a light on my mouse, UGH, this RAM is trash, but AWESOME! LOL, its a paradox, not by definition tho. I'll try your timings tomorrow morning and report back, as for tonight, Im out...

1.95
hmmm. I know when I went for 7-7-7-17 it would not post but @ 7-7-7-18 I posted and was fine to do whatever @ stock voltage and 1333.

You know running that compare I think I will stick with this ram as the differences were minor IMHO between 7-7-7 and 9-9-9 @ 1600MHz.

EDIT: I'm out too!

Ambient 19/20C. Loaded temps just barely touched 32C, usually sits @ 31C while running prime.

Yeah I noticed in one of your screen shots you had all the voltages and speeds, etc. on your on screen display so I added them to my on screen display.


Here's what mine looks like now.



Off to do some more testing.

Hey E,

Can you post anything past 1697MHz without turning on the "Multistep OC Booster" Modes 1 or 2?

Hi guys,

You know what would be really good - a noobie guide to setting timings for ram and overclocking your cpu.

I have asked in a few forums how to do this but no luck so far. I know its a lot of testing crashing, testing stabling, testing ect.. BUT I don't want to get to 3.9 or 4.2! I just want to try and get around 3.6 and set up my memory timings.

I know there is many links on the first page and indeed on other websites but its all greek to me.... and before any suggestions on being stupid... I did manage to spend a few days reading guides how to stick a pc together and well... I did it!

All I was looking for was what options to change in bios from stock, what things to change/adjust and bingo - thats all. I know (well I think I know) what programmes to run after to check stability.

Any help would be great.

PJ

My ram is rated for 7-7-7-24 1600MHz @ 1.65v, but it seems my ram is limited by the IMC. I could only get my ram stable at cas 9 at 1600MHz.
