    Default New to OC what can I do

    Hey guys been searching through the forums the last few days picking up a few things :) Just picked up the GA-EP45-UD3R with Newegg.com - G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

    I just want to tighten everything up, appreciate your help :)

    Whats your mem voltage at?

    You can try PL(static tRead) of 7, but many times it may not work.

    Other than that try to tighten the timings, again you may need more dram voltages

    I'll try that thanks

    Currently running voltages on auto since I haven't had any instability issues but will mess around with them if needed.

    Auto Voltages WAY Overvolt things when overclocked! I STRONGLY Advise you manually set them, PLL and Vtt (Termination) for sure, as well as ram voltage

    If you want a full set of suggested settings let me know and I will post you some

    As for now you can try this range of settings to get better performance from what you have above >>>

    Advanced Timing Control
    tRRD...........................................3-4
    tWTR..........................................3-6
    tWR............................................4-6
    tRFC...........................................52-62
    tRTP...........................................3-5
    Command Rate (CMD) ....................:2

    Driving Strength Profiles
    Driving Strength ............................1066 << Benchmark/test 800 -1066 -1200 each to see what gives best results

    Channel A
    Static tRead Value.........................:8 << Try 6-7

    Default Re: New to OC what can I do

    Thank you so much for your help! Quick question: is there any detriment to leaving on CPU EIST and C1E? The only reason I ask is I leave my computer on 24/7 to seed torrents so there is quite a bit of time where I'm not using the processor besides utorrent. Just wondering if there is any performance hit by leaving it on when I am using it.
