The quest for 5 GHz resumes!

post #1 of 65
Thread Starter 
Well after a short break to handle some hardware issues, it's time to get back to breaking the 5ghz barrier. The rest of my custom WC setup should arrive Friday and I got the G. SKill DDR2 800 in last night. One thing I'll say, DAMN this ram is quick. Timings aren't stellar, but I'll tweak those later.

Hopefully by Saturday I should have some reports. My best SuperPI @ 4.5 was 28 seconds, I'd love to get it down to 27 or lower.

Any suggestions from those who've hit 5ghz? Specificaly regarding PCIE, because @ 4.5ghz with PCIE locked @ 100 I was having issues OC my 7800GT. Anyone else have this problem?

Stay tuned
