I was hoping to run stuff on the slower side, then figure out what my CPU can do. What I used to do on Core2 systems, max out the FSB and memory, then up the CPU multiplier and the Vcore.


Wilson. When you mention the memory at 1450Mhz are you thinking maybe its a little on the high side, so maybe its holding back my NB?

Thx much for the input! :-)


CPU-NB Link voltage,
sorry I been getting confused a lot lately, cause I guess different boards use diff terms for the same things. And I'm not familiar with AMD too much

Are you referring to HT Link Voltage Control?
Or CPU NB VID Control?

Thanks for any help!
Unfortunately I'm not familar with the Giga naming convention on AMD boards, but HT and NB are two completely different things. Generally PHII boards seem to have both main HT & NB voltages which (I guess) raise the voltage to the chipset, but they also have HT & NB Link settings which adjust (again... a guess) the voltage to the controller inside the processor.

I've personally found that I needed to bump both the NB Voltage and the NB -CPU Link Voltage (not HT) in order to get my memory to play nice in the sandbox.
