That's nice stuff.


Its good to see people having good luck with their 790FX-GD70

Try and see how it reacts to that speed first before you get worried about the damage to CPU's IMC. I can't see why they would advertise that speed for fun if they never tested it on an array of CPUs. Now mind you that most ram you get nowadayz is always somewhat "OMG INTEL OMG" oriented. But, Im really getting sick of this Intel buzz. No offense to any Intel users reading but, when you're trying to find ram and constantly see "TESTED FOR CORE I5 AND CORE i7 PROCESSORS FOR COMPATIBILITY" plastered everywhere you tell me how easy that makes it to find ram. What happened to AMD Users. We have 30% of the market? We're not worth 30% profit loss? Exageration of course but, thats the way it makes you think about that sort of wording.

I heard that

Now can you tell me where you live so i can rip that 965 C3 out of your cold dead hands those are some nice clocks in your signature now your making me want to upgrade
post #2915 of 9641
Here are some numbers I've come up with based on someone else who's got the exact same setup as me, give or take. I'm going to try to plug these in unless someone objects.

Target Core Speed: 4GHz
Core Multiplier: 20x
Bus Speed: 200 MHz
FSB : 2000 Mhz
[EDIT: Forgot the Voltage]
Core Voltage: 1.488V
RAM Settings:
Speed: 2133MHz @ 9-9-9-28

Looks ok

Have you thought about lowering the memory clock to around 1333Mhz and seeing how low you can get the timings

Since past 1333Mhz on the ram its almost superfluous results in gaming and other intensive tasks...yet you will gain quite a bit from the tighter timings
post #2917 of 9641
So I suppose the max of 2133 makes it future proof? I suppose I could tone it down to 1600 at 9-9-9-15

As to the RAM speeds, it just means that RAM has been tested stable @ 2133Mhz. This is good for you, because you can get some pretty tight timings with 1333Mhz or 1600Mhz.

The limitation is on the IMC on our chips, not compatibility, per se.

You should be able to get some very good numbers out of that RAM, and in the future you won't have to upgrade as soon, just turn 'em up when you can!

so what exactly is a "tight" timing @ 1333Mhz?

Dont worry about 1333 that Ram should be able to run CAS6@1600>CAS5@1333. Then once you get it stable at CAS6@1600 i would start cranking up the Bus speed. Your ram probably wont perform well on your chip though because its a C2.
