    What exactly did you set? Sorry, I may have gave you to tight of initial timings not knowing how good of a tweaker you are

    This should for sure work for you, then work your way down to the lower settings above with 444-12 and then the rest starting with tRD (Static tRead Value) >>>

    *EDIT*

    Oh yeah, CPU may be at it's max or your wish to push voltage into it is?

    With this tweaked ram timings the machine is stable..

    From what I am reading online the e5200's cant hit 400FSB.. As a matter of fact, most people stop around 320..

    Sure, I can probably go 320 x 12.5 = 4GHZ.. But higher FSB is better

    I guess I'm going to have to be content with the settings above. One thing that's bothering me though is my RAM frequency. At 760mhz, I feel like I'm cheating my self. The final question is this..

    SPD to 2.40 and cut back on the timings? Or am I fine where I am?

    Thanks.

    Did you try raising your PCI-E Freq and try 400 FSB any harder?

    I would maybe benchmark a few setups like you suggest with faster ram, higher/lower FSB, Higher/lower CPU Freq and find a happy medium

    Then........ Sell your old ram and maybe something else and start saving for a E8400

    Those timings even at that speed are likely very good, if you wanted to run 2.40 with 380 FSB you would have to use looser timings and even though faster it may not be better. So that is why really the only way to know would be to benchmark a few different profiles and see which is best.

    F11 on the MAIN page in the BIOS is save, F12 is load. I think you can store up to 8 profiles, not sure the # on your board but for sure some

    I just bought this chip, I have no intentions of upgrading anytime soon. If I need to change anything in my computer it will be my hard drive.

    Increasing my PCI-E frequency will give me a higher clock fsb? :S

    Never heard of that one..

    Ahh, ok!

    Ya, sometimes increasing PCI-E allows you to clock the FSB higher. Just be careful, after 105 or so is not good. 100-110 is my max I use, normally 100-102 is fine for about anyone and if 102 does not allow you to push the FSB higher it is not likely that 105+ will either. I was just tossing you a tip to try out

    Thanks for the tip. I'll give it a try!

    And thanks for all your help in this thread.

    Nope. No luck by increasing the PCI-e frequency. Can't get it past 400FSB. I'm going to stick to 380 then. It's the highest FSB i've seen with this chip from what I've seen online so I guess that's ok.

    I was thinking about increasing the SPD multiplier to 2.4 to get 912mhz on the memory.

    I'm guessing I can slacken the timings to 4-4-4-12. What about the advanced timings. That's where I'm lost. Recommendations?

    Thanks in advance.

    Ahh well I suppose that is good then for that chip since you looked around. I have not, nor have I seen many using it so you may well be right about its limits

    For 380 x2.40 you can use these settings >>>

    CAS Latency Time________________ 5
    Dram RAS# to CAS# Delay_________ 4/5
    Dram RAS# Precharge Delay_______4/5
    Precharge Delay (tRAS)__________ 12/15


    ACT to ACT Delay (tRRD)_________ 3
    Rank Write to READ Delay________ 3-4
    Write to Precharge Delay_________ 4-6
    Refresh to ACT Delay______________ 48-52
    Read to Precharge Delay__________ 3-4
    Static tRead Value_______________6/7-8
    Static tRead Phase Adjust________ [Auto] << Always
