It may have been discussed before, but whats the best OC'able ram for this board? OCZ ? what model? can u guys send me a link? thx!!

I wanna get something thats high capacity but also fast.....

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...tem=20-231-289

This is what I have now, but as stated in the specs its for intel boards (Wish i saw that b4 I bought it) seems like the fastest I can get it is 1666Mhz... at 8-8-8-28 timings... is that about as good as its gonna get?

Just a questions for the guys who cleaned off the old TIM on the board...are the mosfets cooled ok with the thermal tape, or does that need to go as well...

I was wondering this too but it seems w/o the tape, the chips wouldn't really make contact w/ the heatsync i dont think... thoughts?

I think that it really dpends on what your settings are.....

What is your Voltage for the Dram and CPU-NB when you are at 1666?

I want to let you know that IF, you are trying to boot @ 1666Mhz and it doens't matter how much voltage you give it, then you may have ran into a wall. What you'll need to use the "Multistep OC Booster" option in the Cell menu.

What that does, is lower your Ht Ref Clock by 20Mhz, just to boot into the OS. Once you are in and after about 45seconds, your HT Ref Clock will go back up 20mhz.

For instance.
If you set your HTRef Clk to 210Mhz to equal a Ram speed of 1680, then setting the "Multistep OC Booster" to "Step 1" w take your HTRClk down to 200Mhz so you could boot intot he OS @ 1600Mhz Ram Freq.

After 45secs it would go back to 210 Enabling the Ram Freq to be 1680Mhz.

So with a Ram strap of 1:4 you could effeectively Run your Ram @ 1760Mhz in the OS after 45Seconds... But only with Step1. Step 2 Lower the HTRClk by 40Mhz which has been a fail every time for me. once it changes in the OS. It always froze!

So hopefully this has shed some light on running your ram at higher frequencies.....

Yea I'm at 1666Mhz stable at the auto voltage settings... I can run it at 1.65v and be stable thats not a problem... and the step is 1:4... seems like anything higher is just not worth it... its already pretty fast.

I was just wondering if its really worth it to buy something thats made for AMD and is tried and true for OC'ing the crap out of it heh..... this ram is rated at 2133Mhz but no idea if it will do it with the AMD chip since its designed for intel.... doh!

I cleaned the thermal tape off (Pet hair/dust) as best i could and left it on there...i see no reason to remove it and from the looks of how everything goes together in that area it should be doing a pretty good job of assisting the transfer of heat and making sure there isn't much flex with the whole NB/Mosfet cooler

I don't think that your Ram would be a problem... Hey, you think it's fast now... .try running CL6 with it. Even at 1600Mhz with 2900-3000Mhz CPU-NB... it's as snappy as you could imagine....

What's up rewind? Been kind of laying low lately huh?

I should be getting my Tuniq TX-3 tomorrow or tuesday (Hopefully tomorrow) and I'll be replacing the Old TIM with TX-3.... SO hopefully that will put a cap on my temps!

You think I can run the CPU-NB that high? The mobo specs say it can do 4Ghz but is that really possible? THx!

Mastiffman, you are great! I've used OC Booster with Step 2 and maybe that's why I couldn't make my RAM stable ... for example --> that's the max what I could get ...



and that's only with 1:2.66 divider so actually stock frequency 1,066 MHz

My BIOS settings were:
CPU V = 1.38
CPU NB = 1.27 ( why in full load this voltage goes up automatically?)
CPU DDR PHY = 1.23
(this is quite interesting because it helped me stabilize my Ram but I don't know how much I can put without having my RAM modules burnt )

DRAM V = 1.89 V (though I can put 1.9 according to specification ... what do you think how much can I add to this 1.9 more?

I think it's all because my RAM... I should have bought these ones -- > DDR3 Gamer Series for AMD Black Edition - PC3-12800 - 1600MHz Memory Modules (AMD Series)
instead of these
DDR3 Viper II Series - PC3-12800 - 1600MHz Memory Module
...

Well, they work with 1:4 divider with 800 MHz of clock speed but with terrible timings and w/o CPU overclocked - everything at stock voltages.

Any tips to tighten these timings ? (I have already moved them to slot 3 & 4 as you've told me but I don't know if it made any difference)
