Well Eclipse looks like I am having more luck than you. So far 2 hours 20 min prime stable @ 1600 with 8-8-8-24-32-1T. I wonder how high I can get this RAM. It's rated for 1866 @ 8-8-8-24-2T @ 1.9v.
We'll see how it goes. I've got it running @ 3.6GHz (1.5v), 2600 NB (1.4v). Now that I've started using the PHY voltage setting, it seems to have helped a lot.

Here's an Everest run of my memory settings...

I really hope AMD goes triple channel with their next architecture

They wont go tri chan..theres really no use for it in their architecture. They might change by bulldozer but i doubt it since its supposed to be on AM3r2 platform which is supposed to be compatible with reg AM3 boards.

Just watched it today and it was jaw dropping to say the least...Jodie Foster looked so cute (Our age is pretty close compared to when the movie was shot...not a perv comment )

The movie definitely had a great plot twist at the end and it was a real shocker...compared to todays movies where halfway through the movie you can say oh hey didn't i just see this go down in x movie last week or oh wow i see where this is going

I am digging up gems all the time though being the age i am and time i grew up in...i am playing through the Dirty Harry series for the first time ATM...ok ok iv gone way offtopic
I saw AVATAR on Saturday afternon and WOW, WOW, WOW! It was at AMC theater in 3DIMAX!!! It was AMAZING!!!!! Great story and Truely beautiful Picture! I have never seen 3D look so DARN GOOD! James Cameron is Cinematic GENIUS! I SERIOUSLY FELT LIKE I WAS IN THE MOVIE!!!!

So if your ram is unstable, at certain timings how do you make it stable?

And what is the difference between raising CPU VID instead of CPU Voltage in the GD70 bios.

And how high should you raise the VID? Does anyone know where to point me? Don't exactly feel like going on a suicide run.

Hey guys, I'm looking to get a 4GB set of RAM for this board. What would you guys recommend? Newegg would be a good place. Thanks guys, and happy holidays.

I'm having very good luck with the OCZ AMD Black Edition (OCZ3BE1600C8LV4GK). Overclocked to 1816 Mhz, 8-9-8-24-32-1t, 1.7v.

To stabilize your RAM there are a few things you can do. First and foremost make sure the voltage for the sticks is set appropriately, the GD70 tends to undervolt RAM.
Then depending on your NB frequency, adding voltage to the CPU/NB can help.
And after Mastiffman's testing we've concluded that adding CPU PHY voltage also helps to stabilize it.

As for the CPU VID, that's more of a reference point for the board. It tells it what the default voltage is/should be. I believe that would be the equivalent to CPU start up voltage. Also, I've noticed that depending on where it's set to, it changes the "safe" range on the CPU voltage.

So set the CPU VID to 1.30 or 1.35v (stock voltage is up to 1.35v).
And use the CPU voltage to set what you want the actual CPU voltage to be.


On a side note, I've managed to stabilize my RAM @ DDR3 1600 with 7-7-7-21-28-1T timings (2600 NB). So far it's 5.5 hours prime95 stable. (Going to try CAS 6 when I get back from Frankenmuth).

I also messed around slightly with overclocking it last night, got it to 1704MHz. Was somewhat stable, but all of the settings were so....ugly that I just reverted back to 1600 for the time being.

For you guys that have messed around with the CPU PHY voltage, have you noticed that it changes your CPU-NB voltage? I have my CPU/NB voltage set to 1.39 in BIOS yet Everest shows it being 1.42v.

I might get some of that winter breeze on the go when I have some time off.

Crank up the timings and get the ram stable.

What is a safe overclock for air? Like nothing extreme. Im not really that extreme. I like my components to last now mind you I would love to go bonkers and blow the crap out of my pc just to enjoy the thrills of suicide runs which believe me I would totally do it and did and killed my PSU (I think it was faulty but that just killed it good) But, I just dont have the time or the money when Im trying to save up for school.

My cpu tends to idle at 30C. And its Load at 40-42c. I open the window when its cold out it drops to 18c idle and 30c Load. Hehe. I really wanna get some of this on the go.

Really, I already know what to do Ive done it but, I dont know if I did it right. I assume I did. I was able to get 16 hours on Prime95 large FFT 3.8ghz and 2.2ghz Northbridge. The temps just kept Rising and I was approaching 62C Load. So I turned it off. Mind you that I have reseated the processor like 3 or 4 times since. But, I never Really bothered after that.

Unstable First Attempt
Stable Second Attempt

When I did this I didn't set the timings manually so they went all over the place and even worse than that I didn't turn spread spectrum off. This is my first time overclocking this PC. Ive done video cards and CPUs in the past just never had a machine that was really capable of overclocking like this. Like the kind of obstacles you have with new pcs and overclocking is not the same as I remember it because back in the day overclocking was just new and not as much hype like now.

Also, Please do not ask about the X800XL that think has definitely passed its useful life cycle and all of this overclocking was done on an Antec 500watt EarthWatts PSU.

You could try these. They apparently overclock well since their default voltages are ridiculously low.
