In terms of memory concern, don't aim to get it to 1600 or above when you're overclocking 4Ghz and up. Many users at that speed usually set their mem speed at x6 or x8 way below the indicated speed.
Recently I tried to manually configure my memory settings with the lowest possible speed(x6), 1.5DRAM voltage, QPI/VTT @1.1v, timings at 9-9-9-25-34-1T and my load temps were 6c lower! QPI/VTT does contribute in raising vcore temps.
With regards to your video glitch, are you overclocking your gpu? Have you tried ATI Tool and running it for 15-30 mins? It has nothing to do with cpu/memory. Make sure you also have the latest gpu drivers.
is it good to try to get the qpi/vtt and/or the dram voltage as low as possible without crashing? would that help in lowering the vcore voltage?
i lowered my memory ratio so now it's running at 1200. should i bother with memory timings?
i just lowered my qpi to 1.14, dram to 1.5, and lowered my memory ratio to 2:6. i was able to get a stable intelburntest at 1.3 vcore and the max temp was 84. since i'm using windows xp 32 bit, i can onyl test like 2gb of memory out of my 4gb of memory. does this affect how well IBT shows how stable my computer is?Edited by LT225 - 12/8/10 at 5:33pm
