I have a E6400 running on an Asus P5B Delux board, with only the most basic of overclocked settings.<br><br>
Currently, I'm up to 3.4ghz from the stock of 2.13 and am happy with that setting; yet, although I'm not really interested in gaining much more clock speed, I figure there are probably more tweaks I can make to better the performance overall while staying at the 3.4 setting ... especially regarding my memory settings, which I've made very little adjustment of. In fact, I have no idea what the best setting for my particular memory really would be.<br><br>
I'm posting here images of my bios settings; I'd like for any of the more experienced overclockers who have used or are using the P5B-Delux and/or who know something about how to clock ram to please comment at will.<br><br>
My ram is: 1 gig (dual chips) Mushkin Extreme DDR2-6400 (800mhz)<br><br>
The stock timings listed on the chip are: 4-4-3-10<br><br>
(not real sure what that means!)<br><br>
The following setup has been tested extensively with dual95prime (at least six hours on torture) and so far has been totally stable.<br><br>
I'm not the most experienced overclocker ... maybe a few months experience, and so please let me know if you see anything obviously out of whack.<br><br>
Here's my settings:<br><br><br><img alt="" src="http://resume.jbhfile.com/temp/main_cpu.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br><br><img alt="" src="http://resume.jbhfile.com/temp/northbridge.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br><br><img alt="" src="http://resume.jbhfile.com/temp/southbridge.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br><br><img alt="" src="http://resume.jbhfile.com/temp/adv_cpu.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br><br>
any tips, tricks, etc. would be good.<br><br>
my goal is to keep it around the 3.4ghz area but maximize the ram performance (that i spent about 180 bucks for!) ...

Looks great and speed is fine nice job... I have the redline Mushkin DDRII 8000 cost a little more like $550 for 2X1 gig<br><br>
To set your Memory timing's in screen #2 set dram by speed second one down on the list disable it and it will open to the settings box there you can reset the timings RE 4/ 4/ 3/ 10 ect. the Mushkin can take more volts same place as the Vcore is increased set at 2.20 and you can try tighten the settings re 3/3 /3 /8 but at the lease make sure the setting are stock.

Nice going! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Thumb"><br><br>
Here is a little info on RAM timings: <a href="http://articles.networktechs.com/printer-1.html" target="_blank">http://articles.networktechs.com/printer-1.html</a><br><br>
What kind of temps are TAT (if you have it. If not highly recommended) returning?

here's a screenshot after running dual prime95 for about ten minutes; i know that's not much time, but, believe it or not, my past six hour tests have shown there is not a big difference between 10 minutes and 5 to six hours ... at least with the modded zalman 9500 that i'm usiing.<br><br>
here's the screenshot showing what is a fairly consistent 1 to 3 degree difference between asus's provided tools and TAT:<br><br><img alt="" src="http://resume.jbhfile.com/temp/AISUITE_vs_TAT.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
personally, i go with what the makers of the board provide; in other words, i read from the asus numbers; this is probably just an average of the two cores displayed in more detail by the TAT utility.<br><br>
i realize, to be safe and when comparing different temperature measuring providors, it's most likely best to go with the one who reports the closest to blowing something up ... but i rather chose to go with the makers of the board itself, as the most *accurate* measuring stick.<br><br>
let me know otherwise, however, on the chance you have more insight into why one app would be better than the other.<br><br>
take it easy.<br><br>

Here is a link to a thread concerning placement of temp sensors and the software that reads them.<br />

I have become cautious as I age, so I err on the side of...you guessed it "caution", therefore I use TAT for testing and the final analysis for decision-making when applicable.<br />

i prefer caution too ...<br />
<br />
:)<br />
<br />
i just had a birthday. and so, ... i lean on the TAT utility quite a bit as well, but only because it's the greater of the two evils, so to speak. better to be safe than sorry.<br />
<br />
besides ... i think i have thermal management disabled in the bios ... (!!!)<br />
<br />
(it's almost like vegas or LA)<br />
<br />
thanks.<br />
