for amd which one its better for amd platform , tight timing or bandwitch?
Try to aim for 1333mhz with 6-6-6-18 or 1600 7-7-7-21, anything tighter for the speed will probably be much more expensive. The performance between these two settings is just about equal.

I noticed that with my system, I had to gradually get it used to higher clocks and voltages before it became stable. I'm back to 1.10B2 and using my 3.9ghz cpu OC with 3.0ghz nb-cpu/ht link.

im on V1.9 and anymore on the NB over 2500Mhz bios crash and i have to reset and start again

Looks like my post got kind of buried back there and it was pretty much a solid block of text so here's my question and stats stated more clearly.

So I am currently looking to reach the stock timings and frequency that my memory is rated at. I've got Corsair GT Dominator rated at 1600 with 7 7 7 20 timing. I am not looking to overclock my CPU anymore than it needed to achieve those timings right now and haven't been successful in getting stable.

I'm currently running at 1600 with the 1:4 multiplier on, but auto timings are setting me at 9 11 11 29. I memtest'ed at 9 9 9 24 through 7 cycles and no errors came up but while playing a game I blue screened in the first 5 minutes.

I really don't have any direction on what to push to try and achieve stability and have just been trying settings that I've seen others do. I had my HT linkspeed multiplied x12 to get 2400mhz and cpu-nb at 1.25, with my dram voltage at 1.65 which it is rated at.

Should I be manually setting my RC time as well by the way?

My setup is the same that is in my signature, this is one of the final minor OC's I want to do before being happy with my machine! Please help Thank you everyone on this board for all the help and education.

Also forgot to add I'm running BIOS 1.7

What are your voltages for NB-CPU and NB voltage? I normally use 1.26v for NB-CPU and 1.25v for my NB voltage when my NB is set to 2600mhz.

I would recommend that you do. Your tRC should be the combination of your last two listed latencies so in your case, it would be (7+20) resulting a tRC of 27. Also, check if your Bank Interleaving is set to Auto or Disabled and make sure it is set to Disabled. I'm not sure whether or not your RAM will run in 1T or 2T timing, so it's worth a try to test both out.

i'll set them tonight and hopefully ill have my hyperX 4g ram and i can add that in and try for 4.0ghz


Speaking of 4.0Ghz can some of you guys who have made it list your bios settings so i can see if theres a trend particularly if the cpu your using is a 955BE

Well I disabled bank interleaving and I already disabled spread spectrum and C1E before that. Tried testing with 7 7 7 20 27, with the settings listed previously and i crashed in prime95 in 5 minutes. What should my next step for pushing it to become stable be? Should I try 2600mhz for nb freq? Higher cpu nb voltage?

I've been setting at 1T because I've read that performance is better compared to 2T. My memory is suppose to be able to handle it.

Thanks for the help!

Update: So it seems that I'm retarded, I checked back on my volts and had been changing CPU NB volts instead of CPU NB VDD volts. Big difference. I've got a prime test going right now with 20 minutes and no problems so far. Lets hope it can stick it out.

My temps are a little higher than I would like, CPU is hovering around 61 and my NB is about 64. I've read that resitting the NB heatsink can drop temps substantially, do you guys suggest this?

Guys If you are not folding for OCN already PLEASE get in on it so that we may beat EVGA again this year.

It's very easy to set up and you will find tons of help in the F@H section.

Official link

We are currently behind but their is hope as we are catching them and if we continue to keep up this progression we will beat them once again!

Well still no luck it seems, after having prime go for an hour I was going to stop it and when I tried to my computer crashed. I started it back up thinking it might have just been acting up and it crashed again while I was trying to open a game. Weird how it ran on prime95 for an hour. What's my next step in stabilizing my memory? What do I need to play with?

memory voltage set correcty? and whats your PCI link speed - theres nothing to gain from having that over 2100mhz
