post #6121 of 9641
hey guys just a quick stupid question i just swapped my crosshair3 out for the GD70 this morning and in the bios i can not find a way to lower the rams base speed. I see the 1:2 ratio option but in the AMI Bios (ASUS) there is just a quick easy setting to put the ram at a lower speed. I am caping out at like 3250mhz stable on my OC. it is BSOD or freezing in bootup and i am almost positive it is my ram trying to run to fast.. i should be able to get to 3500 stable if not better since this MB has better power management. Any help would be great. thanks guys

i've loaded BIOS, so everything is on STOCK, now please help me what to do in BIOS ...

Does your computer always crash @ a cold boot?

I got same mb, cpu and videocard as you and my comp is also unstable, It crashes always @ cold boots and sometimes rondom.
my memory: OCZ Gold XTC OCZ3G1600LVAM2G

I've putted so much time in it to solve it but still no succes.

Those RAM settings look like they are running pretty low. I would try to run them at rated settings instead of the motherboard's stock settings, since the lowered settings might be causing instability.

I think 1:2 is as low as you can go on this board. If you feel like the RAM is running too fast, you can try increasing your timings, so it gives the RAM some room to increase in clock speed.

I think HT Link speed does effect benchmark scores. It's ironic how most recorded data state that increasing HT Link speed negatively effects performance, yet it increases benchmark scores... thoughts on this anomaly?

Anyway, here are my test results.

Using Mastiff's settings of:

*CPU 4ghz
*CPUNB 3ghz (I never knew I could use the 15x multi for CPUNB)
RAM 1600 (7-7-7-20-27-1T)
*HT-Link 2ghz



Using a higher HT link:

CPU 3.9ghz
CPUNB 3ghz
RAM 1600 (7-7-7-20-27-1T)
HT-Link 3ghz (increased both my winsat and Everest score)

if your PC is always crashing down, i think you've low voltage on RAM's, LOAD your BIOS and make some tests and you'll see if problem is after you set settings in BIOS or not...

when i bought this config at first saw that RAM was working on 1066, so i changed in BIOS, 7-7-7-24 1.7v and PC was crashing down, because 1.7v wasn't enough, then i set 1.8 and PC isn't crash, but i need help of professional , who knows about this problem, but i can't find him ...
i'll set 7-7-7-24 but what volts i don't know 1.8 or 1.9 (it will be more stable ? but may it shuts down my RAm...)
post #6127 of 9641
SO which ram works well on this board...looking for a new set of ram now...anything around 150?

What u mean with rated?

Ill try now macedoneli advice of 1.8v+ on ram, still its strange that its 2 low on stock settings. Stock settings or the ram are 1.65..


I have nothing 2 do with CPU NB Voltage/mulitpl ?
I readed in this thread that more people had cold boot problem and it had also something 2 do with cpu-nb. (but all had the problem with oc and not stock.)
But I never saw a clear answer on the problem.

It also takes so damn much time cuz i can only check the next day if my changes are succesful.

have'nt popped in for a while so thought i'd see whats happening,
and also to say that im no longer a fellow gd70 owner, i sold my amd rig a couple of days ago cus i needed to raise some funds for a 5970, it broke my heart selling my gd70 as its been a little gem but sadly she had to go, but maybe are get another one soon if the x6 pull some decent clocks, but anyway heres a screeny of her @ her best.

Strangely enough i messed with my timings a bunch and ended up trying something that worked on an older board and lowering the NB/HT speed a ton (1800ish) and that has seemed to allow me to get better overclocks again. I dont know why the crosshair functioned fine at a higher NB/HT speed than this board but idc i never could see a difference in my benchmarks from nb/ht speed anyways.
