LOLOLOL. I know. I Know... That online company kept stringing me along though. They gave me "False hope"!?

After I ordered I got an email from someone through ebay that has one. But for 215!!! What a tool! I told them that they were going to have a hard time selling it when one can get the 965 C3 for $20 less.

I can't wait though! There's is this group of guys that are trying to Boot into windows above 1760Mhz on OCZ and XS with the 965 and the MSI 790FX-GD70. They were acting like it may be the board that can't go past 1760. So when I posted my 1792Mhz run, he was asking me what he could do to get that. He didn't even think of using the Multistep OC booster. That's how I got mine to run that high. Plus the OC dial...

Now to the point of why I can't wait to get mine. Oh, BTW, they all C3 965's Running that 1760 @ CL6!!!!!

So with my C2 810 I couldn't boot into Windows from day one past 1700Mhz. So I really think that I may be able to run 1800Mhz @ CL6 with this new chip as long as it's a good one!

As far as the whole "center of the waffer" thing goes. No offense to anyone. I don't even know how much that matters OR how true that is anymore. (I'm willing to be proven wrong! lol) My 810's number is like 90325 or 90327 and it clocked nicely. Check out my Highest CPU-Z Validation on it.

So I've got memory with max speeds of 2133MHz, but eclipse tells me my CPU will only safely support a max speed of 1600MHz. How come?

Also, do any of youse guys use Black Box instead of CPU-Z?

Uhm, I think I might be slightly retarded about this but, they wont sell you parts that dont work at 2133mhz without damaging your CPU? Or do they? Surely they must know there are AMD fanboys out there still. And we're bound to try their ram and get it up to its stock frequency. Do they mean a speed of 1600mhz after the ratio or before the ratio.

I have never used it until just now and i must say i like it

Download it

Now i can't say anything for or against its accuracy but check out my screenshot...i have 939 pins?

Ok, I've read the new guide Eclipse posted, and I still don't get it. Maybe it's not arranged in a manner my brain can absorb, autism does that to a guy. Anyhow, is there some kinda spreadsheet showing a certain model CPU and mobo (say, 965 BE c2 on a GD70), and then the target speeds, and then the necessary voltages and clocks for the various components like HTT and NB and whatever else?

Okay so, If you're trying to run 2133mhz on a MSI 790FX-GD70 which you are. I assume you would have to lower the CPU clocks and raise the Reference clock or BUS clock. At least thats what I call it. Some people I think call it the HTT. You would probably have to match 3.4ghz while matching 2ghz on the HyperTransports Link and FSB and then use the ratio setting to get the ram to speed you want. As for "Killing your processor because the ram was clocked too high?" I can't say I understand how that works myself.

Where ever did you hear that confusion?

So, I added a second
VisionTek 4890 OC
yesterday. Got it up and running, and wow, did that add some heat into my case! Ambient is about 17c.

Prior, my NB idle would be about 38-40c, now it's about 51-53c! Mobo temp was about 23-26c, and now it idles about 30-32c. CPU temps also went up about 4-5c. I'm surprised about two things, how cool the two cards together stay (both folding @ 1025/1050 - 56c/core and 60c/mem, both @ 90% fan), and how much heat that second one added into the case!

Looks like I'm going to have to w/c these things, but they are pretty fast. I'm able to run them both in CFX @ 1025/1115 so far.

What is HTT? Hyper threading technology? Or did I say something stupid? I've never heard of the bus reference clock referred to as the HTT. Maybe Im older on the technology terminology than I thought?

Just make sure you have those warranty's handy when folding

I'm just saying, my memory is advertised as 2133mhz. If the IMC on the CPU won't be able to handle that, I can tune it down to 1600.
