Yes, looks like a bus clock wall because even when I raised the CPU voltage to 1,55V, with multiplier at 14 it didn't want to go any further than 240mhz. Also OC settings are pretty limited on my board, unfortunately.
Anyway, 236mhz proved unstable after an hour of infinite test in Linpack. 230mhz is stable though. It handled 10 hours in Prime95 + Linpack so looks fine. I'm happy about the gain anyway. It gave me 1500 extra points to CPU score in 3DMark and 1gb/s of extra memory bandwidth.
You are very helpful, thank you. But I have one more question.
I found those for just a bit cheaper price than those Patriots mentioned before:
In theory they look the same and user reviews are very good. Also, they are available in the same shop where I planned to buy a new Samsung F3 hard drive. Are they a good choice?
In this review they're generally praised:
But I can't see any comparison to other memories.
they also have these for a very similar price:
And these Patriots mentioned before are here:
To put it in a better perspective the price difference between Kingstons and Patriots are worth a pack of cigarettes and Geil is in between. All of them are cl5 by default but are certified to work at 4-4-4-12 at higher voltage.
I'm kind of keen to buy these Kingstons because I always had Kingston RAM and never had a problem. Also, reviews and user opinions are very positive.
If you tell me which of them are the best deal I'll place my order today and hopefully post my results by the end of the week Edited by szymon247 - 11/13/10 at 8:27am
