E4 i think, but i'll check it when i get home, i'm gonna get some ac5 and change the 80MM stock fan for my 80mm xaser11 with the rheobus.


edit: its a DKA5CF so whichever stepping that is., cpu-z reports it as SH-E4

i want to see some superpi runs on this cl2 memory you claim is running 1:1, or even a screenshot of your memory tab in cpuz....
this was as far as i could get it and I had to boot 3 times into windows before it stopped giving me blue screens (had to inch the chipset voltage up .1V to get it to stay stable for a pi run). Gonna change my hsf for the xaser and see how she runs then, hopefully i'll be able to push 3, but i'm sure my ram will crap out as it is already hardly usable at 272, i only got into windows once and not long enough to run anything.

I can hit 2.8 stable with stock vcore. I can hit 3.1 not-quite-stable with a 1.6vcore.

ya the sandy's do very well on stock vcore. What is your memory timing at 2.8? and 3.1?
post #15 of 22
My mem timings (this is with Value Select, remember) are 2-3-3-5 at 2.8, mem running at 195MHz. At 3.1, I have to up mem vcore from 2.6 to 2.8 and lower timings to 3-3-3-8, and even then it's not stable. But mem runnings pretty high freq. when CPU is at 3.1. Can't remember exactly how high, but this value RAM will actually go up to 225MHz with loose timings. With 2-3-3-5 timings, the best I can do is about 205MHz before things crash.

oh man i read 195 as 295 i was like holy crap on valueselect?!?!? ***

oh man my htt was at 800 instead of 1000, so i set it manually and it gives a noticable difference. System now runx identically to an fx-57 in both arithmatic and multimedia benchmarks in sandrasoft bench and the memory kills the ddr2 pc5300 on the int and float bandwidth. Shaved about 2 seconds off the superpi.

i hold mine at 3Ghz all the time. it held 3.1Ghz for a 1Mb superPI run, but that's about all i could get on my Zalman 9500...

those times are really slow thunder, something is up, you should be well into the 28 second range with the clock and the memory timings....your system is struggling to perform, turn off any unnecessary programs while benching..
I've never seen those OCZ el's run cl2 on any system at that speed. 2T doesn't count , that's probably your problem and why your times are slow...
never run 2T, 1T at all costs..

its at 1T in the bios, but it reports as 2T in most programs except sandrasoft.

I remeber reading something about my board having issues with 1T and tccd etc. Also when i put the memory on 4:5 it reports as higher in the bios than it does in cpu-z, so something seems to be up with that. Also check out my cpu vcore, .032 volts... either my board is running mythical efficiencies or the reporting is off a bit.

Btw i was running bitcomet at the same time I ran the superpi.

There is also something fishy with my scsi320 card it has a monitoring program in windows and it almost always uses 2% cpu.
