Custom building computer for overclocking - Page 3

post #21 of 27
Thread Starter 
I want to flash the motherboard bios to 0513 before I start to overclock this comp. Problem is I didnt get a floppy disk drive. Already possibly having some problems I will need to fix. The auto config of the ram timings seems to be at 5-5-5-18. Should be at 5-5-5-15 according to corsairs website. I will change it later to 4-4-4-12 which will set the ram running at 1022mhz according to aandtech.

If i turned the voltage up on the ram slightly to 1.9v will it be able to run at 1066mhz at 4-4-4-12? It's at 1.8v right now according to the Asus PcProbe.

GO for the EVGA 7900GT instead. Better quality, and cheap as heck on NCIX.com.

Oh, and the step-up program is sweet

Make sure you geta vf900CU and vmod it. It would be a shame to leave it stock...

Good luck!

Did I hear someone say "AMD uses slower DDR memory"? Attention Intel fanboys: DDR has lower latency than DDR2 so it balances out.

Back on topic, though, nice build, and I agree with sideburns but what happened to the uber-watercooler?

Allows for faster 15000rpm hard drives. No Sata 15k drives out. Besides, with the PCI-X raid controller instead of onboard SATA, 2 Maxtor Atlas 15k drives are much faster than 2 10k raptors in raid0.

Let me know when amd gets PC8500 1066mhz ddr2 ram. I am going to wait a bit, probably until I get a Conroe till I go nuts and get a waterchiller or phase.


So far on stock timings, these are my temps (according to Asus PC Probe). I ran PCmark 2006 for a hour continuously: blue=idle red=load
ambient temp: 22
motherboard: 31 34
cpu: 35-38 (as5) 44-46
7900gt: 54 (as5) 71 <---this load temp looks rather high

Do these temps seem normal?. The only one that looks funny is the 7900 during load. It jumps to 71, but drops to 57 in under a minute. Think the heatsink on the 7900 was reinstalled with the AS5 incorrectly?. I've only waited about 36 hours now for the AS5 to cure.

No motherboards use 1066MHz DDR2 as a standard. Getting that is just stupid and a waste of money. If you're going to throw money around like nothing, then at least get 2GB OCZ DDR2 1000.

Check the review of the ram out at least before saying that.
http://www.neoseeker.com/Articles/Ha...views/xms8500/

The Asus P5WDG2-WS does support it with the cpu frequency turned to 266. Running at 200 right now so ya, it is being wasted at the moment. Besides if you want to talk about money being wasted, look at the scsi raid card and 15k hard drives.

Still need someone to tell me if those load temps in the above post are normal.
