    Default P45-DS4, E8400 & ReaperX PC8000-2x2gb benchmarked

    I promised some benches with my rig running @ 9x400 and 8x500 stable... here they are.

    9x400:

    Nice write and copy times on that x500 bench!

    No trd 9 still eh?

    Nope still tRD10, since i'm not always gonna run 4GHz (wanna be able to quickswitch in BIOS to 3.6GHz if it's like above 25 degrees on my room (and vise versa). If i run 3.6Ghz i can't even hear the fans, it's around 10 degrees cooler.
    C1 state doesnt work 100% @ 8x500, it lower's multiplier to 6 idle... but doesnt lower voltage.

    I can tell tRD 9 add's ~250mb readspeed and does about -2 ns latency in Everest Memory bench. Would be nice if i ever get this to boot (always) proper, since it's 100% stable.

    About issue i had with Standy-resume, it looks like resume works very proper like it should now. Even on 4Ghz. Performance Enhancer was the bad guy. And i can also advice everyone to run this "Standard", since it add's stability, no matter what other settings used. Just the little bit extra stability it needs for Standby to resume.... always (Memtest gave only like 5 error's in 20 loops on "Turbo", thats very few).

    Still have the issue with Cold-booting.... when system has been off for a longer period of time.... I hit the power button, power kicks in (fans spin for less then a second, then stop).... 2 seconds nothing... then it automatically boots proper.... Boots always the second time, if not the first. This is also no matter what settings are used (meaning even default).

    Seems odd really, I have no issues with tRD of 9 even up to 1066+ on my board, must be ram quality or something?

    Nice to hear you are S3 stable as well!

    Very odd to hear you have cold boot issues, even at stock, that is a good PSU too aint it?

    Rather RAM compatibility then quality i'd say,
    Powerchips aint that bad, since i had no Micron-D9GMH available in any store here.

    PSU has deviations of 3% at max, thats good for me.
    Very positive review:
    Antec NeoPower 650 Review Page 7 - Conclusion - Overclockers Club

    650w is more then enough for this rig,
    no issues that lead me to think of a bad PSU :)
    It's very very silent too, thats also important!

    I use Mushkins that have PowerChips on them so it is not compatibility

    just checked voltages with a professional multimeter to be very sure...
    Checked 5v and 12v rails.. values appear to be even better then Everest (everest is false).

    12v is 12.11v
    5v is 4.98

    both IDLE and full LOAD (3dmarkvantage)

    it's very nice imo since its less than 1% deviation.

    ****, S3-resume just crapped out on me while doing 4GHz...
    Nothing is what it seems :(
    Guess ill have to live with it since memtest/orthos is 100% stable.
    Hopefully it keeps working on 3.6GHz.

    I did a very intereresting finding:
    Higher MCH voltage allows lower (faster) tRD settings.

    example:
    - with 1.36v on my MCH, tRD 9 ALWAYS manages to POST @ 8x500.
    (it needs 1.32v to be memtest/orthos stable)

    - when running 9x400 with tRD 8 @ 1.1v MCH, i'm unable to get it tighter until i set a higher MCH voltage. That also allows me to do tRD 7!

    Unfortunatly, when running tRD 9 @ 8x500 with 1.36v @ MCH, S3 resume still fails.
    I dont want to go higher than 1.36v MCH for 24/7 use... so im kinda stuck here...

    I think a future bios update should add MCH_startup_value, or something similar!

    Perhaps this MCH voltage has something to do with my coldboot issue aswell...
    It's so time-consuming to figure it all out!

    I'll be pleased to hear your word on this, LSD

    edit:
    i seem to have reboot (coldboot) issues asswell @ tRD9...
    I tried if tRD 11 would work for S3 standby... also no-go
    So im currently running tRD 10 with S1 standby :(
