Just a quick comparison for those thinking of getting any ram Past 1800Mhz. If you can find a better deal on it than say a 4Gb Kit of 1600Mhz Ram then by all means get the higher clocked Ram. You may be better off that way anyhow. AMD will be keeping 240pin DDR3 for at least a little while so any new revsions of the Phenom II Procesor come out, that would enable even higher Ram Freq's, then you're set. IF you want higher...

This will show the comparison of Ram Running at 1600Mhz CL7 and 1333Mhz CL5.

Both Benchmarks are with th CPU Running @ 3.4ghz and the CPU-NB Running @ 3Ghz.
They are Basically the same speed and 1600 CL7 is easier to hit then 1333 CL5, IMO.

The third Benchmark is with 1600Mhz CL6 Ram, 4Ghz CPU and 3ghz CPU-NB. Just for smiles...

The 1333Mhz CL5 which took quite a bit of voltage over the stock required for this Ram.



The Same Ram @ 1600mhz CL7 which didn't any increase in volts.



Now the 1600Mhz @ CL6 which took a little less than what the 1333Mhz CL5 took.

@AndreL & Niko -- You can use RAM rated above 1600 Mhz. The thing you need to understand is that the CPU (even a C3 965, AMD's best chip right now) is going to limit now fast you can run the RAM. It simply won't handle anything above 1900Mhz~, and most people can't get it past 1800Mhz.

So, what's the benfit to higher rated RAM on a system that can't handle that high speed? You can lower the timings with slower speeds (like 1600-1800Mhz, which the CPU should be able to handle) and get very similar performance to the rated timings at the rated speeds. Understand?

Then if you upgrade in 6 mos. or something, maybe you will then be able to use the faster RAM speeds, so you wouldn't need to upgrade the RAM just yet.

Is it safe to run NB set to 2684mhz with 1.3v?

I'm running my NB at 2600Mhz-2800Mhz with voltages ranging from 1.4V-1.55V

The max voltage that is stated by AMD or it might be MSI anyways the max suggested voltage that you shouldn't go over is is 1.55V and the max temp MSI says you shouldn't exceed on the NB is 80C...

Just watch the temps...1.3V should be easy on your CPU temps and your NB should barely even be getting warm to the touch...

I really need a new CPU....damn this voltage hunger Core/IMC

This is a bit worrying for the board i am about to buy...
Can any1 settle me a bit ?

Like i told someone else dont let 1 bad review from july on one bad board skew what you think...go to multiple review sites and look. The board has a much more mature bios now and is stable as a rock. Just read this thread and you can see what im talking about.
post #3328 of 9641
Yeah looks like they were unlucky enough to get a bad board, i'm still getting it, its the best board for features and price by the looks of it.

Are there any CPU AIR coolers that wont fit on this board.

Ok finally just used some spar time to Overclock my CPU and Im at 3.69Ghz-3.7Ghz Stable on 1.35V. http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=914355
Update me on the spreadsheet please
