Actually it runs at 1333 (250HTT with a 3:8 ratio) right now, but with 6-6-6-16-22 timings opposed to my rated speed of 1600 with 7-7-7-20-27 timings. I'm not running below spec because 1333 with 6CAS has a better memory score than 1600 with 7CAS. I've tested this myself and I can't get 1600 down to 6CAS. I'm trying to do the best with my C2 as I can despite it's slight "disadvantage".

I'm starting to understand what you're saying now about my settings, but with my HTT at 200mhz, I can't get any cold boot to 2800mhz NB using a 14x multiplier for CPU-NB, even if I use those 1.55VCPU-NB/1.45V NB settings. I'm able to get a better OC using lower voltages if I raise my HTT to 250. So I'm confused on why HTT OCing is so shunned here, I can cold boot past 2600mhz using lower multipliers and lower voltages.

I'm just trying to learn more about my computer and share my experiences, but it seems like all the help I'm getting isn't very constructive.

Speaking of RAM, I wish the first post had a listing of "favorite" RAM, or RAM that proved a good OC candidate with this board.

I just ordered this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820220440

I'm second guessing myself right now. Is there anyone who could provide me with a better choice? I would cancel the order in the AM, and save myself the hassle of returning it.

Thanks

I made a shroud today to help keep DrMos Cool





Testing it now. Load temps at 55 after 30 mins of P95. Even if my load temps are about the same as before, I hope to at least keep that hot air from entering my H50 rad

Cancel it! Try to look for 1600mhz that has a CAS of 7 or lower. So timings should be 7-7-7-20 or similar. The lower the timings the better the performance, otherwise the higher RAM clocks are negated by the loose timings.

This is probably a better choice for a similar price point.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820226103

At 1600, the best timings would be CAS 6, but at that performance you're looking to buy RAM that is rated at 2000mhz and higher. Also try to avoid RAM that have 2N as part of it's timings, since this means the RAM runs double the time (slower) to finish one cycle. If you don't have a C3 CPU, I would recommend going to 1333 speeds and looking for 5 or 6 CAS timings, as those get the best memory scores.

No. I wish, I would definatly be interested in that... After switchign my rad fans around to go with air from big boy antec fan, my temps went down quite a bit. Before I got 60C occt linpack after 15 minutes, this time I maxe dout 48C. I'm gonna try p95.

For comparison.

NB-CPU VDD Voltage 1.125v
NB-CPU Voltage 1.175v
NB Voltage 1.2v

Northbridge clocked at 2600mhz, tested 6 hours stable on Prime95. Temps are between 61-68C idle/load with a 80mm fan on top of NB/MOSFETs. I never removed my NB/SB heatsink. It seems that 60-70C seem to be fairly typical tempetures for NB on this board. Hope that helps some.

Well i am sorry you feel were not being very constructive with our help,and i dont think we shun HTT overclocking,but in answer to your statement that running your ram at 1333 gives better scores than running at 1600,here's some tests i did today,replicating your settings,and then my settings.
