Need help on P4P800 DELUXE

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hi

I'm trying to push it up as high as possible just for fun.
With quite normal setting with just v-core 1.725 and ram at 333, I could post upto 3.02 out of Northwood 1.8A.

It properly enter windows, and I can use IE. But it fails memtest. So far memtest passes only at 2.84.

So I want to work on other settings in CMOS such as ram performance, dram refresh, dram idle time. May I have more information on those settings?

Concerning basic ram timing, I assume that by spd setting is ok since I use DDR400 PC3200 dual channel of 1G.

Any comment is appreciated.

go to the bios where it says Chipset config.. something like that...
Then the first option is something about RAM... its enabled... so disable it... and then you can configure the RAM timings... i just did that 3 minutes ago... im fine i guess...

I would also recomand not to raise your vcore for now... let it [auto]
And...

Overclocking just for fun isn't realy wise... please download speedfan to monitor your temps..

One more thing... if you can't run a game at 3.0Ghz... its the PSU... (2oow).. kinda low for overclocking...

i would say that ur oc right about now is already quite high so u might want to be careful especially with ur temps. what are your current temps?

another thing, if u want to oc ur ram settings u have to set ur ram to manual from SPD. then adjust the timings and latency.

Idle temp is about 25. Full load is around 35. I'm writing this with 3.02(fsb 168). As I said, there is not much trouble with IE but apprently fails memtest. Currently ram timing is 3-4-4-8-4 which I guess the loosest one. Also dram idle time at 'infinate', dram refresh at 64.

I wonder which will be better, loose or fasten since I have ddr400 pc3200 dual channel 1G ram with FSB 400 cpu, Northwood 1.8A.

Please post screenies of the two RAM tabs from CPU-Z. I'm guessing you're running a pretty hefty divider, or else your RAM would not be limiting you (CPU stock is 100 MHz, RAM stock is 200 MHz). In your BIOS, try selecting something slower than DDR400). Something in the neighborhood of DDR266 should work pretty well for maxxing out your CPU. Once you find the CPU's limit, then test the limits of the RAM.

I assume that combination of ddr266 and fast timing might work. But with auto timing (by spd), only ddr333 gives POST.

Here are the spec of two memory sticks shown in CPU-Z.
With FSB 168 (3.02), I wonder what I can work on ram timing. Could I make combination of DDR266 and fast timing in CMOS since now only DDR333 with AUTO timing passes POST.

Take a screeny of the memory tab in CPUZ, that way we can also see what your ram is at right now.

I know the ram I had in my old system didnt like posting with high overclocks unless it was running as 266 with tighter timings.

As I expected and you mentioned, I could make it post at lower v-core with DDR266 and tight timing 2-2-2-5. But still it fails memtest. I'm posting now with DDR SDRAM 1024 DUAL Performance enabled 167 1:1 2-2-2-5 at v-core 1.70. It fails memtest either.
