[Official] MSI 790FX-GD70 Owners Club - Page 659

post #6581 of 9641
Hey everyone, I'm a long time reader and few time poster, and am just starting to play around with my memory timings again. I've got some Corsair Dominator GT 1600, and have had it at 1600 for a while but it was running at 9 11 11 29. I just recently decided to do something about it and up'd my HTlink speed to x12, for 2400mhz, and increased my cpu-nb to 1.25, my dram v. to stock 1.65, and am trying to get 7 7 7 20 34. I haven't run any stability tests since I have to be on my computer but I had it set to those clocks and crashed while playing a game. I've seemed to stay pretty stable at 9 9 9 24 41. Any advice to make the lower timings stable? Should I add another multiple to HTLink speed? I'm fairly uneducated about overclocking and I'm reading as much as possible! Please help! Thank you, and thanks for this vast array of information.

Update: I memtested the 9 9 9 24 41 all last night and it did 7 passes with no problems. Then I get on a game this morning and it crashes in the first 5 minutes. Have yet to prime test it so I'm assuming I'll crash there too. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

sure is with 1.10 or higher bios update

by the way, does your zalman cnps9900 allow you to install it so fan blows across the case and not just up and down?

Flash to the 1.B BIOS vs the 1.A - 1.B allows you to disable the Turbo thing which allows higher OC's and is just a more overall stable BIOS.

nice looking case there love the green...i am trying to find out how to make my setup look a bit better plus have better cooling, i have a xigmatek red scorpion and it isnt as good as i thought when i bought it, the fan thats on it sucks, 120mm@1500rpm max...most other coolers have at least a 1800 to 2500rpm fan. i am probably gonna buy a scythe ultra kaze 3000rpm fan, will provide more than double the fan flow from my xigmatek fan. Plus im getting a Zalman ZM-MFC3 Support Fan Controller and evenutally a new case

1.B was a little troublesome for me....needed more V's to attain the same stability.

Anyway am trying everything, but am not able to solve the CnQ problem for now, so thats an ongoing exercise. On a different note, I got a new set of ram today, so will be testing it out with my board this evening.

Also wanted to check what all the noise was about with 1090T's and this board flaking out on high voltages. And why did MSI decide on a 4+1 power setup for the 890FX, when every other high end board has atleast 6+2/8+2?
