Any ideas on how to solve this issue ?

Thanks

Ok I am going to guess here as I never use sleep/standby
in Bios there is a section called power management check in there. Another place to look is the power options control panel you might try changing the power plan in there or even editing it. The only way I know(found out on accident) to get what you are asking for is to put it into hibernate. It basicly turns it off but doesn't, if you know what I mean.

mdoclow,

"Who here has had issues with AMD AOD doing weird things with the pci frequency jumping around?"

I get this as well and do think of the AOD like Spec does as I use insimiliar way.

E,

As far as the HT link speed it seemed to hinder performance above 2k Mhz Until you hit 2600Mhz... Have you tried that same teesting situation with anything above 2600 (2700-2800)???

I wonder if it just need the right speed. Also, what were your CPU-NB speeds at while testing the HT link?

I'm not sure how many of you have seen this, but it is the .pdf user manual for the AMD AOD 3.1. It has an area that attempts to explain how to use ACC, as well as other interesting things.

They call it a "Performance tuning guide."

If you haven't seen it yet, I would recommend checking it out, it speaks a lot to overclocking AMD platforms.

Was running 2600 NB I am gonna try for a higher HT just to see what happens now.

E,

Sounds great! I will be interesteed to see the results

Mduclow,

Nice! I'll look into that! My 945 C3 Ships on wednesday... Finally!?

unoptimized and in windows 7. I bet xp + dialed in NB and Ram settings will net near 5.5ghz validation! NB was @ 3400mhz roughly and some ram @ 1600mhz 6-6-6-18 1t

This is quoted off of the 12th page of the AMD tuning guide I posted the link to prior.

" ...
2) Advanced Clock Calibration
In case of the AMD Phenom II CPU, the “Advanced Clock Calibration” (ACC) feature can be used to
improve the tuning margin of specific CPU cores. Typically the CPU core that has the lowest tuning
margin by default is the likely candidate to see benefit from ACC-feature.
ACC can be enabled thru the AMD OverDrive™ utility or from the BIOS menu. Select the “Per Core”
option and set the value of ACC to “+2%” for the CPU Core that has the least amount of headroom. Set
the rest of the CPU cores to “0%” (default value).
Note that the system needs to be restarted before the new settings will be applied. Restarting the
system is required each time the value(s) of ACC are adjusted.
... "

Guys, I'm diggin' this C3! Even in a 64-bit O/S, I'm 4040Mhz - cpu, 2828Mhz - nb, 24/7 stable @ 1.5v and 1.44v. I might be able to squeeze close to 4.1Ghz 24/7 over time. I'm pretty sure there is some tweak room to get the volts down as well. Load temps are about 46c~.

And... after an hour of Prime sm fft's, all 4 cores are matched exactly, there is not even 1 minute between any cores and the tests, they are synch'ed beautifully!

Nice work mduclow!!!! And of course Spec!

I also found some info in the AOD DTG....

According to the Guide. CPU-NB Speed compared to DRam Frequency is as follows..

"In general the CPU NB clock should be at least three times the Memory
clock
(example in case of DDR3-1600: 3 x 800MHz = 2400MHz NB clock)."

So that is very important info regarding memory speed clocks and the affect of CPU-NB speed on it!

VERY COOL!

Pertaining to HT Link Speed. The Guide says a few interesting things.

1. "HyperTransport Link frequency will determine the available bandwidth between the CPU and the NorthBridge
Chipset."

2. "In most single CPU socket configurations the default 1.8GHz or 2GHz HT Link
value offers sufficient amount of bandwidth even for multi-GPU configurations
."

BUT!
3. "Increasing HT Link frequency
may provide a small performance boost for certain 3D applications, games and benchmarks."

So I figure that this was a good piggyback off of E's HT link Testing results.
