@mastiffman: I know you were able to use the OC step. did were you able to just set it or did you have to do something special to get it not to freeze when it steped up in the OS? Also It has been a while sence I have OC'd using FSB/HTT ref clocks is there a V setting for high FSB?

Very cool! Do you have 1600Mem? So that's not bad then! Seems like a nice OC. Was it stable at all?

As far as the Multistep OC Booster, I would normally set it to 2, IIRC, being that it only Downclocks the HT Ref Clk by 20Mhz. Sometimes this would be just enought to get past post and into the OS. I would also use the OC Dial setup as well to see how far I could get inside the OS...

I'm almost positive that Ht Ref Clk OCing will need NB Chipset Volts for more stability. And also, you may need to fiddle more with your CPU PLL Voltage being that the HT REf Clk is changing. I notice the most impact around 2.58-2.61v (stock is 2.5v)...

Nice Ram clock Eclipse.

Hey Masitiffman: What bios Rev are you using that is allowing you to run your ram at 1600 6-6-6-18 and what are some of the settings I should try to change in order to achieve similar clocks and timings?

Thanks so much for the advice. I thought that the PLL would need to be set but was not sure how high or if that was even it.

Right now I am sooooo wishing for more ram divisors! I am currently memtesting 1304 mhz 8-8-8-24 and it seems to be stable so far. Thats with a 1:2 divisor and a 326 FSB (IIRC)


Are you talking about CPU-NB or MB NB

OK WTH!

so I was playing and 9-9-9-21 1304Mhz would give me memory errors @ 326FSB (9-9-9-21(stable on 965) @1600) Then for the heck of it I tried to lower my memory. I am now running 7-7-7-21 1304 w/326FSB STABLE! WTH nothing is different other then the latencies!



BTW core temp temp offset has been set.

Being that I have a C3 955, I've only really liked 1.84beta, 1.1A0 Official and 1.1A2Beta. Although I have lower required Ram volts with BIOS 1.1A2...

I can do it with all BIOS, Beta and Official past 1.6, IIRC.... One has to have a Good Set of Ram Modules and a Decent IMC as well... I acn't run those timings with my Kingston 1600 Cas 8 @ 1.65v Hypers not matter the votlage!

Well, you need to Quit playing around and do some Serious OCing with that bad boy! lol

Typically you would need NB Chipset voltage. But if you aren't using it and you are stable, don't mess with it!

Nice Timings too man! Shucks! I knew the IC's on those Modules could do it!

LOL- AH, that's why you are stable at the HTRClk Frequency. If you crank some NB Chipset voltage you may very well be able to substantially lower that vCore... No?

I knwo that these guys can handle volts past 1.55v but that crap scares me! LoL


Okay, so funny thing is happening. I was looking back at some past OC's wondering WHY in HECK I'm not stable @ 4ghz CPU @ 1.49v, CPU-NB 3ghz @ 1.43 and Ram @ 1600 Cas 6 @ 2.08v (high Volt Ram)

So I lowered my NB down to 2ghz Again and Ram at auto and I'm able to get my CPU stable @ 4ghz @ 1.44v (Bios), 1.432v at Idle (CPU-Z) and 1.416v at Load (CPU-Z).... I'm using BIOS 1.84beta again though. I'm going to let it run a few hours just to make sure and then I'm going to try the 1.1A0 and 1.1A2 BIOS to see if it's the same thing. Or if 1.84beta is really as "Special" as I originally thought that it was!? ... weird though huh?
