Nice, custom mounting for the HK3.0 is a must!

Just wanted to let everyone one know my 965 C3 is OCing WELL across all 4 dimms on 8GB of the AMD Edition Corsair Dominators.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-284-_-Product

240x14 for 3.360ghz - 800Mhz DRAM freq. right now, still testing for max fsb, but is looking good. Im also at 8-8-8-24. Only 10 mins into stability test tho. Ill never get 6-6-6-18 like MastiffMan, but Im also using all four slots, so, uhh...

EDIT: I don't mean to inflict that my CPU is Ocing well, cause its below stock right now, but I mean the IMC's are holding strong. I feel this chip can get 3.9 stable, mebbe 4ghz even, but no more I wouldn't think...

I have this mother board and phenom II x4 965 Black edition.
My RAM is transcend(a cheap one) 2GB single stick which is the worst on the system. It is 9-9-9-24 1333.

Now as my pocket is empty i cant go for a newer ram something like CMD8GX3M4A1333C7(which is planned).

So, what can i do with this RAM to get max performance?

Is there any use in spending time on trying to any kind of OCing on this RAM. I intend to to NO OC on CPU, but just RAM.

I am a newb to OC, i read many many web pages, but still wanted to know best way of doing it from the masters here!

I actually would recommend doing the opposite and OCing the CPU instead of the RAM. OCing RAM is much harder to get stable and there's a minimal gain from it.

Do you have the stock heatsink for your 965 and is it a C2 (140W version) or C3 (125W version)? If you do still have your stock heatsink, I would only recommend going up to 3.8ghz, which you can probably do on stock voltage and by raising the CPU multiplier to 19x. However, if you have an aftermarket cooler, I would opt for an even higher 4.0-4.1ghz OC. This is the biggest benefit in your case.

I also recommend saving up for at least 4GB of RAM, as you're really crippling yourself by running a single stick of RAM in single-channel mode. If you REALLY want to increase your RAM's performance, try lowering the timings down to 8-8-8-24 or even down to 7-7-7-21. Make sure you have the Drive Strength on [Both] instead of [Auto] and set Bank Interleaving disabled. If you fail on lowering the timings, you might have to increase your RAM's voltage, but make sure you only go one notch at a time and test it out, as you don't wanna kill your RAM and be RAM-less. Try not to go past 0.15V more than stock voltage for now.

This is all the advice I can give you, hopefully they help! If anything you can get more advice from the others here.

Excellent, thanks for the quick and very useful update.

I have the stock cooler and i believe it is 140W edition..how to check that? I have a remote connection only to my pc now. OCing the CPU is not a priority for me now. I will try to change the RAM voltages stuff..and possibly not fry the ram.. Wish me luck!

I'll ask again...

Does anyone know what the motherboard LED code "2E" is for?
I am trying to OC my 1055T, right now I am at...

REF: 300
Muli: X12
CPU: 3.6Ghz @1.38v
NB: 2100Mhz
HTL: 2100Mhz

Now I ran my CPU yesterday through 50 runs of Linx to make sure my OC was stable and it passed. So I then go and try to play AC2, all is good and well and played AC2 for about an hour with no crashes.

Next I open BFBC2, after about 10 min of playing a match online I started to notice my MSI AB OSD is saying my GPU is at 103C...I think to myself this can't be right and just kept playing cause while gaming in AC2 my GPU wasn't over 70C and this was on 80-97% GPU usage same as BC2...So I just kept playing till finally my GPU hit 110C and hard locked my PC and rebooted its self and just sat at a black screen with this "2E" LED on my motherboard. The only way to get my system to boot again was to flick the PSU switch off and drain the caps and then flick on switch and power on...If I don't do the previous step I would just keep getting that "2E" LED error code.

Can anyone tell me what exactly this "2E" LED code means? It might be more or less a driver specific issue and not the board. The board might just be getting told the GPU is acting up and putting out that code...IDK thoughts??

Hi! I experienced that code when I didn't push in entirely my GPU when i tried to boot up. I have a feeling it might be that one or something's wrong with your GPU.

I only get this "2E" LED code while playing BC2. I only noticed it because my MSI AB OSD said my GPU was 105c and it locked up my PC at 110c. It's only one game specific. I can play hours of other games and be fine, but only 10 min of BC2 will cause this "2E" error. I will try reseating my GPU later when I get home and as well as reinstalling BC2 if the first doesn't work...Thanks but I am trying figure out the specifics of the "2E" LED code and what it means...

I hope you get it sussed out MEMPHIS. Just out of curiosity was your first two boards ver. 1.0 or 1.1?

Hope you get it all fixed. Please update us regarding the code if you're able to sort it out. I want to learn more about it since I'm a new PC builder.
