Well, I just got 4ghz at 1.48vcore, 2600nb, 2600htt, and it was Crysis stable for an hour, got to 53C, that's the target temp for the fan, and its tearing it up, louder, but I like it.

BTW, I do not hear anything different about the fan having to mount horizontally on my xiggy, it seems to sound like a somewhat louder fan.

One more BTW, if anyone has a set of fan mounts for a xiggy S1283, PM me...

I guess it will take time for the effect of it mounted horizontally to set in...mine didn't make any noises when just running on my desk but after i got it mounted on the S1283 it'd grind and grind ever so loudly...i guess it had some use on it before i got it since i did buy my Ultra Kaze used

Just broke one of my S1283 fan mounts...decided it was easier to just use rubber bands on the S1283+fan instead

As for your overclock you need to put the HT back to stock or below stock (2000Mhz)

Overclocking the HT causes instability and actually decreases system performance

What should my timings be for CAS 8? 8-8-8-24? Or just CAS 8-9-9-24?
C3 improvements were more on the IMC being able to handle all4 dimm slots populatede at once and the CORES clocking better. So far so good!

That ram will run lower timings with extra volts! Trust me! They all do. How much lower is somwething to be found for each model or Ram.

Is this correct? Ive looked thru the manual and online and cant find a certain answer.
DDR3 is best place in the farthest from CPU soket dimm slots being that they have on die termination. Long story short, It helps to eliminate the Signal ringing...

Here is a pick i took after my 1st try @ 4 Ghz..

[IMG][/IMG]

and no i did not try any other setting yet.... this is gonna take me a long time... will make a very stable OC setup.....So will give it a goo with lower setting and prime95... wioll have my GPU at standard clocks aswell.

BTW what is a Hyper Transport Sync Flood i have been walking in tonight.(after installing BF2142, which i think will not be to hard for my PC) This with all my setting back to stock as i am not planning to test my OC abilities till the weekend. Any solution perhaps.... ???
I only see 1 pic fro some reason and it doesn't show the specs on the ram... Which ones are they?

HT Sync Flood error basically means that you don't have enough volts running to the CPU or CPU-NB (related to memory)

Nice work! Will they be carrying SB Waterblocks as well being that the NB/mosfet HS is also connected to the SB...?

I have been seeing some test done over at XS that may very well be pointing in the direction of Matching HTlink with your CPU-NB Link to aid in stability of CPU-NB Clocking. Wouold, be nice to see some more results on that!

Later Gators...

A little busy the last few days! My LG BH200 Super Blu-Ray/ HD-DVD player went out and I"m trying to hunt down the Drive that's in it. It's a typical SATA drive that's in it so I'm not completely sure if I purchased a different Sata Drive, that it would work... Should, but will is a different story...

Hello again folks!

So, while I've been lurking here since my quest to cool of my NB temps, I've learnt a number of things. I tried the Antec spotcools, but that only brough me slight relief (58*C to 62*C at idle). Then I tried the stock cooler fan which I had to orient diagonally on the NB heatsink. That was a degree cooler than the spotcools.

Then I remembered that I had two 60mm fans from some old Athlon XP coolers and I tried those. At first they were no better than the spotcools, but then I alternated their orientationn and temps went down significantly (54*C - 58*C at idle and loading at 60*C to 65*C).

I though I'd have to live with that, but then you guys decide to replace the TIM on the NB and SB...why the heck didn't I think of that...

Anyway, idle temps on my NB are down quite a bit now (46*C to 49*C) and stay under 60*C under load (Far Cry 2 for 1hr ... would have gone above 70*C before).

So, thanks guys. I'm finally satisfied with those NB temps...now for the GPU! I might be watercooling for that though since the Arctic Cool Xtreme actually seemed to have made my GPU temps worse!

I'm thinking two loops, or one big one with multiple rads. I can probably fit 2 120s inside my case (Silverstone Raven RV01) and its got mounts for a 360 on the back...but, gosh those WC parts are expensive!

Anyway, thanks for all the great info and keep it up!

Mikhail

OK! I will try So far (after yestarday's overclocking session) I had NB at 2330 MHz

You know I feel now like a stupid (LOL)... It's a little bit embarassing for me... I got used to change settings in BIOS using Enter (there are many settings that you can change it this way) Of course I knew that you can change setting using +/- but well, It didn't cross my mind at that time

Thanks for warm welcome - there are first results (like I said after yesterday's overclocking session)

3495 MHz

FSB = 233
CPU NB = 2330
CPU V = 1.36 (and that's strange because in CPU-z there was 1.35)
CPU NB V = 1.21

I ran Prime 95 for 6 hours and it was stable - no errors. Can I assume that in this case my system is stable? or this should be longer test?

Thanks a lot for your advice - first post and you see... I have found the sollution :>

Hiii
I was browsing this forum and I have found some of your threads and I have found that you've got the same mobo as me but after I've added you to contacts I forgot to introduce myself Sorry for this confusion

Quote:
When you want to change the voltages in the bios you can also use the Page up and Page down keys
yes - I have replied to eclipse that now I know the sollution :> (actually +/- keys work fine for me

Quote:
As eclipse said yes you want to push the NB around the area of 2.4Ghz/2.8Ghz...when you start overclocking the NB make sure to know the difference between NB voltage and CPU-NB voltage in the bios...when you overclock the speed of the NB you will be working with the CPU-NB voltage and not the NB voltage
Yeap - I know that - someone on this forum made a great topic with all of these settings explained ... so I didn't change NB voltage but only CPU-NB
and here is my question - I have set CPU-NB at 1.21 V and it was fine (that's 0.01 V above stock settings if I am right?). Do I have to push this voltage up more (so far system is stable with that) - what setting would you recommend to me (don't want to push up more voltage as it is necessary to get stable system).

Quote:
As for your HT make sure to keep it as close and under 2000Mhz as possible...overclocking it past 2000Mhz decreases system stability and lowers performance as well
So you say that it could be even under stock settings I mean under 2 GHz ?
Now my HT works at 2070 MHz so I think it's not so bad

Quote:
Now please feel free to dump some more questios on us
Oh, yeah! got something about RAM settings (I have prepared especially screenshots) but have to hold on with posting this because now I just don't have enough time

... but don't worry - it will be done soon

Thanks a lot!

To answeer the following: I only see 1 pic fro some reason and it doesn't show the specs on the ram... Which ones are they? This is the artikel numbre form the Ram KHX1600C8D3T1K2
Picture of my RAM


"" HT Sync Flood error basically means that you don't have enough volts running to the CPU or CPU-NB (related to memory)"" = Strange because all i did was raise my Ram voltage to 1.65V because i run it 1:4 @ 1600Mhz, not even changing the CaS etc etc...

Hey hey all, quick question, Patriot Gamer Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) on this mobo, anyone know if I can fit the Zalman CNPS9900ALED? Seems it will but thought I'd check to see if anyone knows for sure before I order.
Thanks ahead of time.

Overclocking the HT causes instability and actually decreases system performance
Would you be willing to part with the left over xiggy fan mounts? lol

Well, for some reason when I tired 4ghz at 2600nb and 2000 htt, it wouldn't post, but when I set it fro 2600 nb and htt, the system is booting and running fine. My settings are 1.48vcore, 1.3v cpu-nb, 1.3v nb, and 1.3v sb and htt link. Anything wrong with that? AND, how can I test performance accurately between 2600htt and 2000 htt. I understand keeping htt stock would be best, as in my 939 oc days, you didn't want htt to go over 1000.

EDIT: Well, I'm booted at 2000 htt, must have been a vcore issue why it didnt post before. Who knows, Ill get hoem tonight and 2000htt wont post again... I did notice a performance increase! I went from a 20s 1MB SuperPi run to just under 18s. I'm gonna think about the RAM timings again, but I've already tested this RAM in the past at different timings and freqs. They just dont do anything better than 9-9-9-21-30 I don't think.
