nope. Not really. I think most of everyone is buying the 965 c3's. I'm actually wanting to push my luck with another 955. But I kinda want a 550 c3.

Maybe instead of "Wonka", I should be calling you "Richie Rich"... LOL

SO!...... how is the OC coming along on the 955?

Volts, Freq's, CPU-NB and Volts? I know you have something going on...

I"m @
CPU 4Ghz @ 1.416 (CPU-Z during load)
CPU-NB 3Ghz @ 1.45v (Bios) 1.5v 9everest during load)
Ram 1.6Ghz CL6-6-6-21-27-1T
HT Link 2.6Ghz 2 1.32v

I would love to be able to be in the 6's if possible, but this truly is my first "RAM" overclocking, so I have absolutely no idea what all of the timing names stand for in the BIOS.

nah haven't done much of anything today. I'm pretty satisfied with the overclock on this thing with air. I'm going to keep this as a daily I think. It's actually nice and quite once you tone down the fan with a fanmate


NB actually goes up a few degrees with more cards in. Around 32c Idle with all 3 and being passive.

What about dust? Isn't that gigantic heatsink going to get really dusty really fast?

I would almost try a different, more unnoticed shop... Ty[ically they all get their shipments around the same time. So chaces are that you may actually get the same batch with a lightly lower number for the same batch... Just a thought.

Also, what's daily looking like. I might have to stick with 4GHz, 3Ghz, 2.6Ghz and 1.6Ghz CL6 or my daily.... I'm gonna try getting that 250HTRef Clk with 4,3,3,1.6 Cl6 Back... Havn'e ttried sinse that night that I tried posting above 3ghz on the both the CPU-NB and HTLink.

I would love to be able to be in the 6's if possible, but this truly is my first "RAM" overclocking, so I have absolutely no idea what all of the timing names stand for in the BIOS.
Try these settings:

CPU 3.8 (200x19) @ Auto V. (or1.40v on the CPU Voltage, NOT VDD Voltage)
CPU-NB 2.6Ghz (x13) @ 1.28v (In BIOS)
Ram 1.6Ghz , DCT Mode "Both" Set timings on DCT1&2 to (CL)7-(tRCD)7-(tRP)7-(tRAS)21-(tRC)28-(CR)1T
CPU DDR-PHY to 1.25v
DRam Voltage .07-.10v OVER Stock required v.
NB Chipset Voltage to 1.25
HT Link Voltage to 1.25v

1.) Run Prime95 in SMall FFT's for while (6hours without Errors) to ensure CPU is stable FIRST.
2.) Then Run in BLEND Mode (6+ hours) to Ensure that whole OC is Stable together.
3.) If all is stable reboot into BIOS and change JUST the CL for Both DCT's 1&2 for the Ram and reboot in to OS and run Blend again to ensure stability.
4.) If Stable reboot into the BIOS and Change the tRP and do the same as step #3.
5.) #4 is stable, follow step #3 for the tRAS, then tRCD, then tRC. This should get you down to the CL6-6-6-21-27-1T

NOTE: You may need to increase the voltage a little more even the .10v Suggested above. Don't worry about adding those volts, MOst Ram (UNless super cheap crap) can take a pretty good beating... You can always try to work the Dram voltage down, one voltage step at a time after you gett he above timings stable. OR just leave the timings at CL7-7-7-21-28-1T
You can also try to Work the CPU-NB Frequency up to as high as you can get it. I run mine at 3Ghz (1.45v in BIOS but Everest measures it at 1.47v and 1.5v under laod.)

Hope this helps.

P.S. These settings are NOT guaranteed to work. but are more of a guideline/ baseline of where you shuold start. But they should give you a good one if not be the right ones... Youmay have to work up to them as well. OCing takes time so don't rush things and be patient.

I need someone to help me out! I having a custom waterblock made for this mobo by Ultrasonic2 (muffy), we are currently in talks and negotiations, but I don't have access to measuring certain aspects about this board. I'm out of tim, and I can't remove my cooler to do some measuring. If ANYONE happens to have their cooler off sometime recent, can you do some measuring for me?

I need the dimensions measured from the center of the CPU socket to the edge of the mounting bracket. So from center of CPU socket to right side of bracket, left side, top and bottom. And I mean to the outter most edge of the bracket, and for the top and bottom, this includes the distance from center of socket to outside of where the screws mount it down. He's trying to help me build the absolute biggest block possible, and I need these dimensions. THANKS TO ANYONE WHO CAN HELP and +rep to whom who does!

EDIT: Here's a pic of our board with red lines indicating my desired measurements. Please include with each dimension which side it includes, i.e: from center to top: x.x", center to right y.y", etc... THANKS AGAIN!
