the 2000 rams are usually used together with intel they benefit alot from speed
my ram is rated for 1600 7-8-7-24-2T but atm i am running 1420 7-7-7-20-1T and if possible i will try to get 1420 6-7-6-18-1T
So far with abit more tweaking, i've managed to get the ram stable at 1750mhz 7 8 7 21 2T, Or i can go 1312mhz 6 6 6 18 1t, i have tested both and it seems the 1750mhz is alot smoother with gaming, Or it might just be that ram divider is not liked by the mobo.
But i serioulsy thought 1312mhz at 6 6 6 18 1T would be alot quicker, when i run everest benchmarks 1750mhz at cas7 smashes it.
I have been playing with this ram for over 2 months now, and today is hte first day i have been able to play BC2 at anything over 1680mhz at cas7, It seems the new f7 which i thought was not a new one when i checked, until i read the comment on here about it being the same file name but it was a update, FFS giga**** are so ****** stupid, would of saved me all this ****** trouble 2 months ago if they had just renamed the file and not left it the same, I did not take note of the bios date, just the file name, and i always thought it was the same one.
Seems rev1 board is ok, but needs alot of tweaking, been in the oc game since the first p3's and this is the first rig which has taken me over 3 months to get stable.
Final result 328mhz 4.592ghz 1.65v, ram 1750mhz cas 7 8 7 21 2t 1.71v.Edited by OptimusSwine - 8/21/10 at 3:48am
