you should run some memory tests and system benchmarks to see if everything's up to speed. =) Also to test system stability..

k i turned EIST back on, kept the multiplier at 9 and lowered the cpu voltage to 1.30, and got choppy sound.
i left all above settings the same other than EIST (i turned it back off) and sound is fine.
what should i be noticing or what should be different/better about having the voltage down to 1.30 rather than 1.35?
could the choppy sound while EIST is on be because windows 7 and vista dont play well with this mobo's EIST setting?
i remember having speedstep on with my asus p5b-e board and never having any choppy sound issues.
the thing is also that i dont get any choppy sound issues when i boot into linux or osx.
the choppy sound happens on all audio devices in windows 7 and vista when EIST is on

seems like it's running fine at 3.0GHz @ 1.3V eh? I would just leave EIST off, I always do, it's no good. =P Check actual temperatures between 1.30V and 1.35V, you can also get details in your BIOS, but if you are running in the 40 degrees range you can probably OC more and take advantage of the extra CPU speed. =) This processor should be able to do 3.6GHz @ ~1.4V so if it will be under 60 degrees or so, it might be worth it to run at that speed since it's safe.

You should be able to run tests in Everest. Tools tab: Cache and Memory Benchmark, System Stability Test, etc.

Nova looks real decent. Even better with CD in the background. =P

Try this for 3.6GHz. =x after your bench tests so we can see the diff. =) make sure to check temps.

CPU Host Clock Control - Enabled
CPU Host Frequency - 400
Performance Enhance - Standard
System Memory Mulitplier - 2.00D

CPU VCore - 1.40V


cross your fingers..

Try these settings, they are optimum.


Don't forget to change your CPU multi to X8 for 2.6GHz (no problem). For MCH Latch and everything else not listed here, set them to AUTO. I would simply load defaults then enter the following settings.


CPU Host Clock Control - Enabled

CPU Host Frequency - 333

Performance Enhance - Standard

System Memory Mulitplier - 2.40B

DRAM Timing Selectable - Manual

CAS Latency - 4

tRCD - 4

tRP - 4

tRAS - 12


Advanced Timing Control (submenu)

tRRD - 3

tWTR - 3

tWR - 8

tRFC - 52

tRTP - 3

Command Rate - 2


Load Line Calibration - Disabled

CPU VCore - 1.30V

MCH Core - 1.20V

MCH/DRAM Reference - 1.0V

ICH I/O Core - 1.60V

ICH Core - 1.20V

DRAM Voltage - 2.10V

So 6 years later, I still have the same memory and CPU.
Only thing that's changed really is my video card. I recently went back to the overclock settings that you recommended above, and ran MemTest.
I notice it says 5 5 5 18 though.
Is that just because those are the RAM specs, or is it not testing the ram with the settings I gave it(the 4 4 4 12 you told me to do above)

By the way, the next test for stability is Prime?
If so, any suggestions on how I should run it?
