I relaxed the timings, and have peaked the ram speed @ 838 mhz.
Now I am trying to tighten the timings.
I was using 2 instances of Super PI, and running the 32M tests for stability testing of the ram. I read somewhere that Super Pi is a good test for OC'd ram. I did have a few tried along the way when Super Pi would encounter an error caused by the ram.
Any advice on the best method of trying to tighten the ram timing now that its OC'd?
I am have the timing down to 5-4-4-18. My computer failed to post with the CAS lowered to 4 (4-5-5-18).
I am starting to try and "FIX" the 18 :)
I have an infrared Temperature gauge, the highest temp I have been able to find on the RAM was about 49c @ load. Most of the points on the ram are 2 - 6 degree's cooler. Ambient air temperature is currently quite cool in my room.
Is this good temperature level? What would be considered too hot? Im looking ahead for the summer heat :)
I seem to have maxed out the memory, but I'm not sure that the timing is totally accurate. 5-3-3-3 @ 838 Mhz.
Is the tRAS really running at 3? Is this helpful to performance?
I moved on to the CPU, I put the core voltage up to 1.5v. I have the CPU @ 3.01 (I think, I am in class atm and going off the top of my head.) I am using Core Temp Software, and the highest I have seen the Core temps is 45c. The Cores are usually 42-44 under load. The CPU did not want to run @ 3.06 (Windows froze during, or just after loading).
Hmm...Your CPU should be able to do much better. I believe you can run the memory unlinked from the FSB right? Make sure you set it like that in the BIOS. Also make sure you check on OC settings of your board. And start out your voltages way lower please...Start at 1.40V and see how far you can get on that...I think you should be able to start at 8x400(3.2GHz) with that voltage and go up from there....If you get a lot of BSOD you might want to loosen the timings on your RAM and lower its speed a little.
