2240MHz Mushkin Ridgeback RAM W/ Phenom II X6 1090T & 890FXA-UD5 - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Great to hear my quest inspired others!

It made me want some Ln2

I know it's super hard to push memory on AMD, compared to Intel, especially the tighter timings, so you are doing a great job!

Ya, Chew will be hard to tackle on AMD, good luck though if you go for it!!

Absolutely possible, even with Mushkin modules. At least in single-channel (testing dual-channel now)...

Wow, great job Slappa!

Well, 8-10-6 is a bit radical; going by the rules of timings (i.e. 7-9-7 ~= 8-8-8) it should be about equal to 9-9-9, still a fairly good result.

970 X4 = new IMC revision...i'm talking 955, 965. they wouldnt budge past 1800MHz
you also are using single channel
are you ganged or unganged?

You mentioned Deneb . Unganged. But that was with a Mushkin module. I have hit suicide runs of 2006 MHz several times on the STT sticks (4 x 2GB).

With both the Mushkin 996902 and STT sticks used within the confines of my setup, voltage has been a key factor in being able to hold a stable memory overclock. For example, the 996902 modules will not hold 5-8-5-18-23 1T without at least 1.725v.

Really? What do you mean, is it a C4 revision or a variant of the E0 revision?

Well I used deneb and overclocked ram with it long before there was ever a 970 X4. Theres still tonnes of users that have the 955 and 965, my apologies.

With every model they change the IMC, which changes how the ram can be overclocked. The 970 X4 is obviously the most recent deneb IMC revision. The highest binned cores combined with an IMC that was either improved or slacked off a few timings in order to support 1800MHz+

Most PSC chips, voltage only comes into play when passing a certain clockspeed. I can run all the way up to 2240MHz like I did in the OP, with no voltage increases. The only reason I had the voltage increased was to see if it could provide me with more headroom. All sticks are different, some like more than others. But PSC should not be run above 1.75V on air as it won't gain much benefit and will just add heat to the ram. It will also degrade or kill your ram after awhile above that voltage.

Nah the whole chip isn't a new rev. Just the IMC.

It's still a highly binned Deneb C3 , with an IMC that has been slacked off to allow for higher memory SPD support.
