I know this - noname ram will be out, Geils are much better. After I tune setup, I will post some results (E Cacheman, superpi32M, CineBench, etc...)

Hey all,

I know this isn't the ideal thread but it's a great one, applies to our CFX mobo and I had to share.

This may not be news to many of you but GOODNIGHT my crossfire microstutter has finally been nipped in the bud. It's like I traded in my gpu menage a trois for a single.

Culprit.. HPET enabled in BIOS.

From my understanding disabling HPET forces your system to use a less accurate timer through the cpu instead of the chipset. I can't imagine it would affect stability but just wanted a little clarification on the subject if anyone has any idea.

interesting. i haven't had this problem. i'll have to check it out when i get home. nice to see someone else with trifire 5770's and 9800gt physx!

Indeed! I have to admit that I finally went for broke and picked up the third card after reading a couple of your posts and haven't had a single regret. It was definitely worth it.

As for HPET... sure enough I just ran through a gambit of games (particularly titles where I could recall specific scenes/views/areas that hitched or had stuttering) that I used to chalk up poor performance to unoptimized drivers or AMD/TI's craptastic CAPs system and many of them confirmed HPET is not CFX's friend.

So i have GEIL installed, but im little bit confused and sad. My C2 has a little bit bad DDR3 controller. Cause if im use 3800 / 2600 and ram 1600 7-7-6 (7-7-6 works too) - linx is stable, same hyperpi 32M, but sometimes PC restarts itself... So i adjust 8-8-8 and is ok, and no restarts ... Very very bad DDR3 controller in C2 revision :-(

But anyway, in 14 days i will have x6 1100T BE, and i hope, that i will hit 2000Mhz for memory with nice timing

even the c3 chips have trouble running ram at 2000mhz. usually around 1800mhz is the max. thubans have much improved imc's and will generally do 2000mhz on ram and 3000mhz+ on cpu-nb.

Yeah, you won't get much better than 1700-1800mhz with a C2/C3. Even with a Thuban, you aren't guaranteed anything past 1800mhz, though you'll have a better chance with RAM that is specifically made for 2000mhz and up.

I have Geil evo two 2000Mhz 6-9-6 1.65 grantued. I can pass linx with 7-7-7 1600, but sometimes sudden restart occur. So im at 8-8-8 1600 ands its ok, this alll its cause C2. My friend with C3 and worst rams can run 7-7-7 and thubans are better what i saw. So i must wait to unleash full ram potencial with 1100T

EDIT: Im played little bit with CPU PLL(VDDA) voltage and from auto i set it to 2.8V - now i have 1600 7-7-7-21 30 1T stable with C2 :-) Its safe to use 2.8V for 24/7 on this?

EDIT2: Linx error after 30 minutes and COD crashed after playing one hour, i have to set back 8-8-8

Anyone know the max temp of the motherboard? Mine fluctuates between 29C-38C depending on my fan settings. It was better before, but one of my Yate Loon fans broke, so my Scythe Slipstream fan is my puller instead of just blowing on the mobo/gpu.

have you tested upping more the ram voltage or not?
