Help, Can't do 289mhz on DFI Expert with Geil One TCCD...

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Title says it all, no matter what settings I try I can't seem to get my ram stable at 289htt 1:1 on the Expert. I'm not real familiar with the 20+ other timmings in the bios and have no idea how to go about setting them up to stablize my GeIL ONE TCCD at 289, I know damn well these things are capable of 300+htt. Please help O ram gurus.

Try disabling 1t timing. 2t usually gives you a better overclock. What's the vdimm at?


"no matter what settings I try I can't seem to get my ram stable at 289htt 1:1 on the Expert."

Exactly what settings did you change?

if it's pc3200, yes, that's quite a bit.

It's rated to do ddr600 (300htt x2) with 2.5-4-4-8 1T @2.7 vdimm (i know, kickbutt ram huh), but I can't get it to do 289htt at 2.5-4-4-8 2T and I've tried 2.6-2.87 vdimm. I know it has to do with the other timmings or something but I'm apparently clueless (<--hard to admit) about those.

Sorry, forgot to go over that, the cpu will do 260x10 rock stable but won't do 289x9. It WILL do 289x9 on a mem divider. It's definately the ram.

Yep, some of those other timings other than the first five have quite a large impact onstability and bandwidth and shouldn't be ignored.
Here's a very useful guide: http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=11397
Just going to take a bit of time if you want that extra speed.
Also, try burning in with test 8 on memtest overnight for a couple of nights and see if that helps.

Try it with only the one stick of ram and see what happens....are you running dual channel? Also I wonder if the Spread Spectrum might have to be disabled in the bios.

What's yout htt frequency at? (5x, 4x, 3x, 2x) It should be no higher than 3x if you want to go with a 300MHz "FSB".

I'm just trying to to offer tips.

vdimm 2.7 - 2.77
tcl 2.5
trcd 3 - 4
tras 6 -8
trp 3- 4
trc = sum of tras and trp
trfc = sum trcd trp and tras
trrd 2 or 3
twr, twrt, trwt 2
tref 3072
twcl 1

skew 255+
dram drive strength 7
data strength 4 (reduce 0%)
max async 7 - 8
read preamble 5
idle cyc. 128 or 256
dyn counter - enable
R/W bypass - 16x
Bypass max - 7
32 bit gran. - disable

Sorry if I left out a setting or two, this should get you to around 300 or so...

if I put a hyphen try to go for the lower setting for performance, and fall back to other setting if you encounter instability

something similar to this works for me to about 291 htt so...
