IIRC this is the correct process. Let me know how it goes...

Nice OC bny the way. The Ram is nice Ram as well!
I will try that tonight. Thanks for that tip!

Yeah, that's my starter/foolin around OC. I didn't even learn how to really calculate and adjust everything yet. I just kinda...played it by ear...listening for the BIOS reboot beeps, that is.

Yeah, the Mushkin was on sale on NewEgg and had a $20 MIR which made it as cheap as less pricey brands, so I scooped it up. First pair of Mushkin I have ever bought. In fact, my new build is some really good stuff. Enermax 80-Silver 1050W PS, 4x Samsung F3 HDs in RAID 1+0, dual 5850s. I spent some money, but this machine should last me at least...eh...1-1.5 year?

I will post back here when I do some more OCing. I am hoping to hit 3.8-4.0GHz, but I fear going too high cause I got a Zalman 9500A 92mm and I know it's thermal resistance is a bit higher and dissipation rating a bit lower than the 120mm jobs.

BTW, do you know of a good program or a decent way to get the temp off my CPU with the 550BE unlocked on this MSI board?

I'd really like to know that my CPU is running heat-wise, so I don't fry the poor thing (even though I bought a backup 550BE just in case )

Thanks again

Welcome and how are you liking that board?
Actually all he has to do is click the "Member sign up" link and add himself.


Sorry guys I have been swamped! I ran 36Hrs strait then had 1 Hr of sleep and then ran another 12 strait before I finally got 7 hrs of sleep. Thankfully my long week is now over and I can do some catching up and get back to helping (hopefully) you guys answer questions as well as make some changes to the OP.

to all of you this club is running so smoothly and getting so much knowledge out to the people that need it! I am thinking about doing some sort of contest for the members of the club.(as long as admin will allow) I have no idea what it would be or what I could do for a prize or two. Any ideas feel free to PM me and I will try to get back to you as quick as I can.

Hey no problem E!

Just trying to keep things rolling and helping others as the need. The contest sounds good! I don't really have any ideas at the moment...

OT,

Bad NEWS for me. I ordered my Asus 5770 and come to find out after is shipped that it's a Version 2 (The Egg)!!!! DANGIT! LOL I don't want that!

I tried to egt ewiiz.com to help me out on it Being that the website shows the Version1 for the Product pic but has the manufacturer number with a "V2" at the end. I didn't find out that the possibilities of getting one was even an issue until last night!?

So now I have to wait until it arrives, reject it, wait for the refund to post, order a new one (If I can find it) and wait for it to arrive....

So I'm stuck with this crappy ole XFX nVidia 7900gs until then.

BAH!!!!!! Anyone know of a good site that i could possibly find one for close to 175-180 with free shipping????

The 4 1600 ram sticks ran fine on my system.. games and all! But OCCT revealed the errors. So I backed off to 1333 6-6-6-24 and then I passed all torture tests.

AMD should make this known on advertise specs.. I can only imagine the countless of other people who fault their system and got rid of it.
Got my 8GBs of ram stable at 1600mhz under OCCT stress test.

I only bumped the volts to 1.92v with 7-7-7-24 timing. Since these are high voltage ram I was a little concern about doing this but on OCZ website they give an okay up to 1.95v

Version 1
Has the full shroud over the GPC and Memory thus cooling the memory by is heatsinks and sending all hot air out of the back of the case.



Version 2
Has the "new" heatsink that suppsedly cools the GPU better by a couple degrees max. But the memory has no built in heatsinks this lowering the potential ability to OC and Worst of all the Air is just dipersed throughoutt he PC case.... I will not put one of these in my PC....





Toxic,

Nice work! How it run? Does it make any difference in 3D benchamrking?

Mastiff: Ah. Yes I totally agree! I also will never buy one like V2!

IIRC the reason that they did it that way was because the VRM's were overheating at full load causing the cards to downclock because of the way the cooling was setup as well as the placement of the VRMs. I

How far exactly does the MSI OC utility that you can download from their website push a 965 BE C2?

Yeah, I don't know what I"m gonna do. I have the chance to reject the UPS shipment. SO I could order one by tonight. I've been hearinga lot about the Vapor-X that sSaphire has and the tests with heat inside the case and it's noteven a full Degree (*C) that it raises the Case temps. SO I may actually just go with that. Any thoughs?

UPDATE on the Ram OCVenture. I woke today with my Ram Passing Prime Blend mode for well over 8 hours @ 1773Mhz...

So I'm shooting for 1800Mhz today!
