Keep going in either direction until you get the longest prime run and then if all else fails, bump the CPUv one step...

Hope that hepls!
Hmmm i have never seen this little dial mentioned

So far i am around 1.55V on the core now and thats 1.56V idle and 1.544V load

I am running 2.65V through the PLL...i just selected this number randomly so it can probably go lower

Now how does this effect CPU temps compared to just upping the core voltage?

My highest load temp usually evens out to being 45C and under...its higher ATM due to my CPU fan spinning down and up as the GD70 is only running the CPU HSF at 37% and when the CPU surpasses 45C the fan spins up to 50-60% fan speed so the core drops below 45C and the process repeasts itself

It's still better than 100% fan speed from this kaze

Here is the Linx progress so far...i am surprised it hasn't crashed...i wonder if this will help with my core clock issues

I am going to start increasing my core clock and see what happens

Got 5-6-5-24@1333 stable with 2.1v, it kept bluescreening after 2 hours of prime95 blend but i put a fan on the ram and that cleared that up now its stable.

Cool. Looks like you could trying to getting a bit of COoling on your NB Chipset/ Mosfet HS. Did you say that you have a fan on it? The Stock AMD Phenom Fans work great!

Here is whjat mine looks like as to where I have it mounted. It's an older pics so things look different now. I painted the whole inside of my case black and have bifferent Components and less wires.

Have you tried Ganged mode? Or the Blue slots yet?


Read THIS Conversation that I found today on Ganged or Unganged. You might find it interesting... Lots of good info. Pay special attention to the user "M_S". You can tell the he knows his stuff.

I have been using my Blue Dimm Slots for a wihle now with good results...

I havent ran ganged yet and i will read that thread...I am using the blue slots though

SLI works on this board, right? Some say it don't but I'm fairly certain it would. Someone solve this mind debate for me please.

Okay so you're saying that the MSI GD70's BIOS are "Greater Than" than the Giga's? LOL

Or that you switched?

Yeah it's quick read but very informative.

Summary.....

Unganged vs. Ganged.

Unganged- Better for Multithreaded apps. Not as stable being that the two DCT Channels have to be accessed at the same time which can cause timings issues, especially at HIGHER Speeds.

Ganged- Better for single threaded apps. More stable being that both DCT's are looked at as one and thus access is smoother being that it's setup as more of an auto state instead of having to be adjusted.... through timings and Strengths...

Do me a favor and Run the Everest Memcache bench at your currect settings. Then switch to ganged and rerun the Memcache bench again and tell me what you see different... It's nuts!!!

P.S. did you see my testing results for the HTSF Error testing? If not, it's totally due to low vaoltage for the PROCESSOR frequency....

Oh yeah and I'm running my NB Sable @ 3Ghz @ 1.40v in BIOS, 1.43v in Everest and 1.44v with a full load!

Prime95 Blend Stable.

Sorry for the Dubs everyone!

Yes it does work.
