1.63 is safe for him as long as his HSF is performing proporly. hey dude who started the thread. i can;t PM you so contac tme on AIM @ wileet4fud

EDIT: If you have your BIOS updated, your vcore is actually .5 higher than what you set it in bios. I run mine @ 1.7 with Vmod to hit 3.0....but i wouldnt; do that on air....
What is a vmod and is it easy to do? Also if I update my Bios to run at 1.5 should I be able to hit 1.6 with the timings you showed? Do i need to drop the 350 on the new memorry or can i hit that on my budget ram?

I dont; think you ened to pay 350 on new RAM but you do need to keep it down on 2 sticks. I woudld get some deent overclocking DDR, but you don;t need to drop 250 bux on a new kit. You can get a reasonable good 1 GB kit for 160 bux...for 2 gigs i think you could get one for 200-225.

The bios update (newest one) gives vcore .05 v higher than what it shows in BIOS. The vmod, is easy if yo have some soldering skills already, but i wouldnt; recocmend it without some practivce at least. It involves soldering somehting extreemly small on the PCB and there is no room for error. I would say go for it though. I used a cold heat solderign tool and it doens;t heat the solder already on the PCB so you can make this a reversible mod so noone knows. You can hit 2.8 on 1.63v....

Look in the vmod section of the site and you will see some linsk to the work it takes...

Do you have some recommendations for 1gb modules of mem? I would hate to be held back by my mem and I have enough other machines arounf the house I can easilly find a home for my budget ram.

Hey guys.
Nice read through the last few pages. Prob is I don't understand most of the lingo... I am a self declared newb.

I've finally invested in a decent high end system, and had problems with BIOS, so had to reset the CMOS etc, thus setting my BIOS to default.

What I was wondering is if I could get some direction on how to set up for a 4400 on my DFI UT SLI-D mobo please? At present it's at default, and I don't want to go overclocking the crap out of it, if at all really.
Is more just that most of the settings in the BIOS are set to 'Auto' etc.

A pic of the same BIOS as mine is in the FAQ pic here:
http://img352.imageshack.us/my.php?i...sgenie19pp.jpg

On my screen presently it is set at default as:
FSB Bus Frequency -- 200MHz
LDT/FBS Freq Ratio -- Auto
LDT Bus Transf Width -- v16 ^16
CPU/FSB Freq Ratio -- Auto
PCI eXpress Freq -- 100Mhz
K8 Cool 'm Quiet Sup -- Disable
C & Q MAX FID -- Auto
CPU VID Startup Value -- Startup

CPU Core Voltage -- 1.33V
LDT Bus Voltage -- 1.22V
Chip Set Voltage -- 1.52V
DRAM 2.5V Voltage -- 2.64V

CPU VID Control -- Auto
CPU VID Spec Cntl -- Auto
LDT Voltage Cntl -- 1.20V
Chip Set Volt Cntl -- 1.50V
DRAM Voltage Cntl -- 2.60V
DRAM+.03V if it's not 3.2V -- Disable


I didn't mean to hijack this thread or anything, just this was focused on the 4400 and I didn't want to start yet another new thread.

Any advice would be appreciated. Again, I am not wanting to heavily OC at this point, just to get it running at a basic aggressive setup.

I would advise you to start a new thread IMO, you would get quicker responses and it would help unclutter things. Yours and his mobo are entirely different things in the bios, there are plenty of people with yours...
