Do you think that 2-3-3-8 would be better than 2.5-3-3-7? or that it would make me able to overclock my cpu or ram more?
EDIT i mean 3-3-3-8
Thats good to know about the 4 sticks. I never realy thought about that, but it does make total sense. I am not even going to try. With my water cooling system it is quite a task just to close the side panel. the water cooling system besides its main cooling bay(or whatever you put in the cd drive slots) hase a 80x80x25mm fan connected to an 80x80x25mm of coiled copper tubing and that is connected to my side exaust fan wich is of course 80x80x25(green quad led makes my case look pretty!) with all the extra shit in there, well it is just hard to close it without somthing hitting the fan.
I just figured that a native 2.4ghz could get a lot closer to 3ghz
Also can some one give me a hand here. I get(vaguely understand) CAS RAS to CAS RAS precharge. but the 1t 2t thing i dont know even wich one is faster. not to mention there are a ton of other memory timings I leave on auto because I dont understand them.
Ok, funny story, true story. So after I posted that last one I started messing with OCing my e6600 system and now it wont start. This morning I remembered someone talking about 4 sticks being a bit tough on the memory controller. I cracked my case and yanked 2 sticks then felt bold and OCed my stuff even more. Anyway its not stable the way I have it so I will just put it back for now. But my memory is Kingston HyperX ,huh, I could have sworn I got value ram.
Dont know were my jumpers are. CANT FIND A BATTERY. so I'm screwed for now on my e6600.
Too many cords and tubes to see the battery, yea I will just look at the manual and take out that batter when I get home. I set to 1t timgins with 2 sticks in back at my stable oc of 226 and 206 for my memory, wouldnt start, but I had to go.
Its not "lagging" but it can drop below 40fps on the fear test at max, lowest was 38fps but like 90 percent is abuve 60, or whatever the top group is. So basicly I just want mOre POWER!!!
Thanks for that link, it sounds like it will be fun!
Hey not home yet, I am having my lil brother take the batteries out out now. I was shopping all day at work lol. got a nice PSU that lights up blu, moduler plugs nice nice. My current one is 420watt it is probably about to splode! I got some ram heatsinks for my 2 grahics cards. x1800xt and 8800 GTS. I got the kingwin ac-3000 because one the kingwin website it says works with ALL Nvidea and ati cards... guess what... NO IT DOESNT, doesnt fit on the 8800's I cut some pieces off and bent some others and got it to fit. but I had no idea the memory got so hot, nearly melted my ballz off and beleive me it was an effort to get them in there in the first place.
err. sorry I am pretty sure I had some kind of point but I seem to have forgotten it.
I do video editing and multitask alot. for example I will be playing counterstrike listening to music browsing the net playing snes roms, and ocasionally playing some other game too like maybe WoW(not my account, its not worth 144 bucks a year or whatever, to me) So clock speed is important
Dude it is not my day! I come how and get them both to turn on, then I notice my waterblock has literaly fallen off my AMD one little tab thing has brocken off my mother board well I got it back on but of course my cpu is running like 10C hotter but under load that is 54C so its not devistating till I get more thermal past.
There are a couple good options for thermal paste; I don't have the link to the thermal paste shootout but there is a hard to get brand called Shin-Tsu or something that won that shootout with Arctic Silver Ceramique coming in a close second and AS5 trailing way behind the top performers. Since AS Ceramique is easy to get I would recommend it for sure. It is also a lot cheaper than AS5
On my 4600+ 65w version I have gotten to 3.1ghz stable, but once I started cranking my memory up I couldn't keep 3.1ghz stable. I was able to get 3.0ghz stable with timings of 5-5-5-18 2T on Corsair XMS2 memory clocked to about 1000mhz. I ran it through some benches with that setup and with the same CPU clock but with a more conservative Memory overclock with 4-4-4-12 2T timings; but in the end the looser timings and higher memory overclock trounced it in performance so that is the way I keep it now (I actually keep it at 2.94Ghz 12x245 just so I dont feel like I am constantly running my stuff at its maximum). I can't even think about getting a 1T command rate with this memory though for whatever reason
I think if I had a better cooler instead of this Zalman 9500 I could stabilize a bit higher CPU overclock...higher quality memory wouldn't hurt me either.
I would say for the memory you have that that is a pretty nice OC
