(I had another thread going but it was cluttered and i got some new info so i opted to start this one instead)
Ok i am in need of serious help.
My current settings are (im just trying to find something stable, ill lower the voltages later):
FSB - 423 (* 9 = 3.8 GHz)
vcore - 1.3625
MCH - 1.42
ICH - 1.3
VTT - 1.34
Under these settings my system will pass Prime95 small ffts 8 hour test, but will fail on the blend test after 10 minutes, indicating memory (even though the memory passed 4 hours of memtest)
My memory is rated for:
Timings - 5-5-5-18
My current memory settings are:
DRAM voltage - 2.1
Speed - 846
Timings - 6-6-6-18
Under these settings Prime95 blend test is still failing, but if i lower the timings to 7-7-7-18 my computer wont post. Is there anything else i can do to get the memory stable? I saw settings for MCH/DRAM Reference and DRAM termination, but im not sure what either of those do or if increasing them will help.
Also there are two options on my board to set the memory at a 1:1 ratio, one of them is 2.00B and the other is 2.00D (from what i understand they deal with the memory strap, but im still fuzzy on the differences between them). I have tested both of them this setup and both tests failed Prime95 blend in less then 10 minutes.
If anyone has any info or advice i would be grateful
Yea, i think the ram is holding me back due to failing the blend test, but the fact that it wont overclock even 46 Mhz is just pathetic. I am still planing on lowering the overclock and then increasing the ram to make sure thats the problems, but i haven't had the time to do that as of yet.
