post #571 of 1595
I tried booting at 234FSB with the memory at 400 and 533 and neither would post so i tried the trusty 233 and 232 fsb and neither would post at 533... i put it back up to 667 and it booted right up... do you think it could be the latencies? i am using 8-8-8-24 as recommended by gskill should i try lowering it? and lowering it to what?

What I recommend to do at this step is to try to eliminate the source of the unstable OC. Change the memory clock to the default setting, and make sure you're at the default voltage for the RAM. Change the RAM speed to 400 so it's 1:2 for the ratio. That way, the RAM can be eliminated. Next, try raising FSB slowly while keeping the CPU Multiplier low(7x or so) with the stock vcore . If it does not boot, you can 100% be sure it's your board.

I would suggest go back to your old setting, and bump up more vcore to see if it boots. The board and the memory seems to be fine, now it's down to the chip.

ok i dont know what is going on i am completely confused... but i stopped at 260FSB and started raising the multiplier to see what happened .5 at a time... and i am at 3120mhz (allowing the board to do V CPUZ says 1.47) 260x12 --- 1820 NB/H --- mem at 520

Manually set your VCore and keep it at around 1.475V, raise the multiplier to 13x. If it does not boot, keep the multiplier at 13x but lower the HT Clock back to 240 and start going up slowly.

ok i just got 3375mhz -- 270x12.5 -- auto V -- 1890 NB/HT -- Mem 540... Booted up great idling at 19c

Im gonna back the FSB to 240 and up the mult to 13 and see what happens when i start going up on the FSB

Good luck, try to find the best combination that will allow you to utilize the most of your memory's clock.

Whelp i made it to:
3406 -- 262x13 Auto V but it is sitting at 1.488
1834 NB/HT
524 Mem 6-6-6-15 (set by MOBO)
booted up and is idling very solid.20C.. gonna test at this for a while and see what i get before i try any higher. but it seems VERY solid... and i have a lot of room to back down the FSB to my target if it isnt stable enough for heavy gaming....


On a different note. Platinums fantastic methodology illustrated to me what the problem more than likely was after thinking on it for a while. I had been stuck at the 3.01ghz barrier for a week or two since i got the setup assembled. and was trying all kinds of stuff. in the midst of all of this i upgraded my bios from a much older version to the newest version without setting everything back to stock and starting over as i should have. i was looking through the release notes of the bios update and found where one of the updates in between fixed some issues with several mfg of ddr3 ram not timing out correctly. Any thoughts? am i completely crazy?
