Just found something intersting. This was about some Gskill RAM. Now I have my HT voltage up a notch or two due to the fact that I run it higher then 2000 so That may be helping with me running it @ 1600. Time for some more testing! (hopefully this weekend)

hmmm HT voltage....that just threw me for a loop

is there software to turn Cool'n'Quiet function on, off or auto on the desktop? The AMD overdrive is having problem disabling this function and overclock; even when it's auto. I hate to restart my comp to get into the bios again and again.

Yes it will fit with the stock cooler. BUT it may not with some aftermarket coolers.

I just took the worst HSF's(heat sink fan) clearance(Megahelms AFAIK) and put that in there figuring that way we could cut down on some of the will my ram fit questions. Now if you are running water you could run that 10" stick you were talking about as long as it will fit in your case



Exactly!

As for Ram speeds. The C2 stepping chips are native 1333 and anything above that is a technically OC on the IMC. AFAIK no one has been able to run higher then ~1800. The nice thing (as has been pointed out) is that you can run 1333 or 1600 and tighten the heck out of the timings, as well as probably lower the voltage. For some killer latency.
Sorry... LOL- I just had to do it.

I thought that I metioned this a while ago... No? I swear that I did. No Biggie. The HT Link Voltage supplies not only the HT support but also GPIO (General Purpose Input Output Voltage) and Analog PLL...

Unfortunately not. just trun it off in the BIOS. Restarting and going back into the BIOS is an OCer's best friend!

You would be the exception. The question is tho can you go any higher? can ya??

You are correct sir I completely forgot. *gracefully hands credit to Mastiffman*
+rep for the correct answer.

BTW how are you running @ 0*c?!?

So mastiffman, since you're such the expert , what exactly is the correct timing and latency for the speed of 1333mhz? and i'm not going any higher, so don't theorize about 1600.

I was messing with Kubuntu 9.04 last night on an old rig, and it doesn't sync right or something to my monitor or something. So, I gotta get the 32-bit Kubuntu 8.04.2 out and re-load and hope it installs well, and hope that it's not the video chip on the motherboard gone back.

Gnome wasn't too bad, but I just liked the look and feel of KDE 3.5 better. It looked clean and neat and the default config was more appealing to my natural instincts of where to go for things.

Maybe KDE 4 will get better. I don't know. If not, I have to figure out how to put 3.5 on newer installs or keep using the old version then updating it.

Oh yeah, I realized last night...I have to get the Alternate install for Linux to get RAID compatibility for my new rig. I am such a dope sometimes

Hello!

Ok... last week I decided to clean my rig out a bit. Recent constructions by my neighbors and such prompted me to buy a couple cans of compressed air, dismantle my whole system and start cleaning. There was dust all over the thing and hated for it to short out or something.

(SIGH) I must have done something to my system since now, upon reinstalling everything back my Gigabyte GA-MA790XT-UD4P mobo will not show me any core temp readings. They all show -55C. I have tried resetting the BIOS back to normal, I have uninstalled SpeedFan like three times (along with eliminating any residual registry entries) and such and no luck. Also, as luck would have it, my AMD Overdrive shows me the cores and all but won't show me the core frequencies! CPUID does show me all relative data so I know it's not the CPU. I uninstalkled and reinstalled the AOD several times as well. I know that this is my bad and I can only think that maybe I did not properly discharge myself of some static electricity or something and maybe that fried whatever helps control the core temp sensors. Other than that, the mobo works just fine but, how can I OC if I can't read my temps? I'll keep it as a back up board should I have any problem with the replacement.

Oh well...

So, none of the local parts vendors have any real AM3 boards available. Some have no clue what they are talking about. One guy told me that I could use my DDR3 memory on the AM2+ board he was trying to sell me (an AsRock I think it was). I said no thanks and decided to surf the net.

My three choices were obviously the:

Gigabyte GA-MA790FXT-UD5P
MSI 790FX-GD70
Asus M4A79T Deluxe

I figured that I would upgrade while I was in the process of changing the board out. It's Christmas, I've been a good boy and Mrs. Kah said I could have a gift if I wanted. Sooooooooooooooo....

I knocked off the Asus from my list because I would not be able to use my sound card (X-Fi Titanium) with it then. No PCI-e 1x slot. Somewhat of a shame but I have the money invested in that sound card and don't want to loose it. It's only like a month old.

I am partial to Gigabyte but the reviews on the MSI are very good indeed. I decided on the MSI only because it was cheaper. Also, I don't know if it is me or what, but I look at that board and it reminds me of the Batman movies. Michael Keaton did an awesome job in those movies.

So, I ordered it from MWave last night. Was the second cheapest price by $3 (after Newegg) but had cheaper freight and I also came across $10-off coupon code which worked perfectly. The board and freight together was only like $4-5 more than the Gigabyte board alone (not including freight). I hope to receive it by tomorrow, Friday the latest.

I also liked the Keaton/Batman movies. It's a shame he never appeared opposite a Robin.
