I bet some of you are stoked about the new x6s coming out! I know I would be if I still had my system!

Aah, I'm not that excited about it. No offense to those that are but what's the point of that many cores? 4 Cores are plenty in my eye's... AMD should be focusing on their "Process Stages" and "Integrated Memory Controllers" instead of cores. But that's just my 2 cents...

Integrated Graphics could use a good upgrade as well! The ATI Hybrid Crossfire is kind of pointless when the IGPU is only constructed of 32bit architecture....

I like the idea of evolution, "x" number of cores and so on, but I'm really focused on improving my IMC's clock instead of upgrading a quad core to a six core.

Evolution.... That's WHOLE other story!


GSK3RD,

Where did your System specs go? Be proud of what you have!!!!! At least you have something, right? There are those don't have anything, let alone a PC!

@ Everyone,

What are all of your Vdroop specs looking like? Does anyone know if setting the VDD Voltages will affect how much VDroop there is? Ecplise, you mentioned something about this didn't you?

Mastiffman,

The kingstons are really holding me back on bandwidth



Not 30 minutes stable at 2928 CPU-NB on the configs above...

Trying some settings here in order to reach a higher cpu-nb, since I cannot even think about lower latencies

Can't complain about the system as it is since it's pretty fast but...

Hm.....

They shouldn't be. As long as they're a decent set. Could just be settings. Tha could just be that you don't have enough volts to your NB... Try increasing the CPU-NB Volts and retest. Say upto 1.45 in BIOS for the CPU-NB. If that doens't do it then it the Dam Voltage. Mine need 1.71v for stock timings to be stable.

I know these Modules are decent. I highly doubt that you got a crappy set. It happens but it's rare. Most of time these people that have bad hardware from the get go are installing components right off of the truck in cold weather. That will cause instant condensation and Bam! Short them puppies right out! Even installing parts without unpluging the PSU will do it.

So you should be good, just need some tweaking!
Check my pair out! They were in a 785G chipset motherboard too!

No, I don't think that I got a bad set, no complaints here

Actually I got a VERY decent cpu, I can almost go to 4ghz on stock volts

It's PRIME time again

Maybe I can check if my modules also reach that kind of speed...

With Ram that can't do lower timings (Cas6) without needing rediculous volts, you are better off running them at higher Freq's with say Cas8 or even Cas7 Timings @ 1750-1800mhz and CPU-NB @ 2750-2850Mhz. Ram that can do Cas6 Timings are better ran at 1600mhz and CPU-NB @ 2900-3000+mhz.

1600mhz Cas6 with CPU-NB @ 3000+ will give you better latencies (Lower) than 1800mhz Cas7+ @ 2850mhz CPU-NB or less. it's easier on the AMD's IMC and will typically require less volts overall! JMO through Experience though!

I usually keep my VDD voltages 1-3 clicks lower than the actual voltage. However, even if there is a larger gap, I saw no performance/VDroop differences. I usually have higher voltages during idle than when it is in load (about a click in difference).

EDIT: I feel like the 6-cores aren't going to make much of a difference, unless you actually use applications that utilize those cores. I'm more stoked about Bulldozer APUs, but that isn't even going to come out any time soon.
