Welcome to OCing. :lol:

 

 

 

Specifications on your RAM timings are : Timing

 

3-4-4-8

 

 

 

 

 

You may have to loosen them up more to OC higher. Use the genie Bios settings to tweak your memory then use memtest 86 to test if the memory is stable at the given timings.

 

 

 

Lots of trial and error in OCing.

i even have to do the timmings when its on a devider? right now its 340mhzs under 400ddr lol

 

i know the ram does 415stable had it for year like that in my dfi 250.

 

it works 415 in thsi motherboard @ 2.3ghzs.

 

but even if i lower the ram wee down to 100ddr lol it still wont go past 2.3ghzs.

 

 

or do i have to do the timmings on this board even if i dont oc the ram?

Yes, if you don't have the manual already follow the link I gave and look up the Genie Bios settings and try setting the divider at 9/10 and loosen up the timings like to 3-5-5-8 and see what happens. When you increase the fsb you are also increasing the memory speed.

ok thank you:) i know it increases the memory while ocing but i had it at 100ddr and tried and still cant go over that..

 

but gona look up that manual you posted and loosen the timings:)

 

 

oh you meen this right? Motherboard English/Multilingual Manual

have you added a little more voltage to the chipsets? sounds like that might be holding you off a little.

 

what voltages are you using at the moment across the board?

cpu / memory / chipsets?

i tried uping all voltage to 1.5max for all of them and it didint help:(

 

i even tried teh cpu at 1.61vcore still no go.

 

so far i got it at 2.34ghzs but i know it should go higher but not sure how to get it up there:(

 

everytime i try higher it stops at were it shows all the stuff cd ram raid controller and cpu speed and stuff.

 

im still useing teh stock bios whould that do anything or no?

this dont make sense lol very tricky board lol

 

i figure i try my kington pc3200 just 512mb and set it to 270 for 2.45ghzs and it booted right to windows i pop the ldt on 2.

 

so i figure ok i try my 2gb adata ram again just 1gb in the first slot like the kington was and it didint boot to windows.

 

so i tried it in the 2nd slot and put the ram in the 4th slot and put the the fps at 268 @ 2.4ghzs and it booted right to windows lol

 

i guess i have to keep mesing with stuff to get it going lol

ok i updated to the 12/23 t-mod bios and now its overclocking @ 2.475:)

 

the bios must of been messed up that came with the board...

 

 

 

2.5ghz now:) tho my ram didint like 220 so i tried lower devider and it stoped at that pci loading screen.

 

so im trying to figure out how to get my ram to be lower atleast up to 218.

 

right now im runing it at 218 with clockgen had to use that to lower it for now.

2.7ghz:) have to run my ram at 300mhz tho.

 

till later on till i get better ram

 

so far im likeing the performence:)

 

 

also did a 05 mark http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm05=2451684 oc card a tad bit:)

 

 

loveing this case to xclio 2x 250mm fans staying realy cool:)

2.8ghz:) stock volts and it feels like it wants to go more:) my ram is ony at 310 but more mhz is better atleast till i get pc4200 in couple months lol

 

but so far the performence is realy nice:)

 

gona keep it at this and do the usely things i do gaming:) and see if it crashs than later gona try for 2.9 or even 3ghzs:)

yep im like the the board very much:) got it on sale to 53$:)

 

but so far im likeing it as my dfi-250ut or better:) think the vcore could go way above 1.9 lol but no way theses cpus will survive lol

 

but im not haveing any problem ocing with ony 1.37vcore on it:) think i could even lower the vcore and still be good lol.

 

ony thing i recomend on this board is update the bios when you get it lol because mine whoulding oc over 2.4 with out hanging on the pci screen.

 

but after the update it overclocks like a beast:)

yep im going to:)

 

 

for cpu got it to 2.85ghz:) tried 2.9ghzs forze on superpi than when i try to boot again sai system32 error:(

 

thought my windows died :(

 

than i try back to 2.85 and it worked but i herd its memory when it causes that error.

 

tho got my ram on teh lowest devider but maybee its the timmings not sure.

 

i know it cant be the cpu because on prime i could run it forever on small with out ram.

 

but when i run it with ram it fails after 11mins.

whats weird is it fails prime but i been gaming fear for hours and autoassault which streses the whole system 100% lol and call of duty 3 and carbon with out any hipcup lol

 

but that makes me its something with the ram i have to do.

 

because if it was the cpu it will cause the games to freeze or crash or do something lol

 

but im gona keep it at this clock till i get prime stable on the 3rd settings for the ram befor any higher because dont want to screw up windows lol

 

 

but this computer will be at 2.9 or 3.0ghzs soon a later lol
