    Lower strap is better anyway, why did you want to use D?

    I was JUST reading your test of B vs D straps and you clearly said D is better :)

    um... TOADS? :D

    Depends on your board you are using and what FSB though, and also what memory timings and voltages are used.

    That was just simple quick test for a user, nothing in depth or set in stone

    Ok back to previous post - how is B better then? In general I guess.

    For P45 it may or may not be depending on all things considered. But "In General" the lower straps use tighter timings in the NB so throughput it faster

    Seems like I MIGHT have found stable 500 configuration already. 1.260V MCH core and surprisingly 1.2 VTT and 0.740 MCH ref.
    Now if it proves stable (few hours to go), what would you rather do? Try to lower the voltage and test again, or go up with FSB?
    Speaking of finding highest FSB possible, in how big steps would you increase the frequency?

    Thats all up to you, about the voltages and lowering. You could leave it, or try lower.

    Highest FSB, I personally pick what I want then make it work. I mean if I wanted 550 FSB I would set that and then get on making it work, no small steps in between 333 and 550 for me

    That may not work for you though, you may want to take steps in 5 or 10 testing as you go.

    Damnit, I think I will waste half my pay on cooling :D
    This looks very interesting!!

    I do like Thermalright. They give the impression of the company being a couple of genious Asian guys in a shed, doing magic stuff with metal. Their customer service is poor, as is the support IMO. I also spoke to the rudest, most arrogant rep you could imagine! They are heatsinks though, so I doubt any support calls are regularly needed.

    I like the idea of the tumble drier hose to turn a passive sink into a semi-active one. Sound idea, and definitely two blokes in a shed.

    I agree with LSD. I always set the speed I want, then make it stable if I can. With this I went right for 3.4GHz, then 3.6GHz, then I re-conosidered my Vcore limitr and tried to go 4GHz. No matter what I did, I couldn't make it stable with 1.45V or less (in CPU-Z after Vdrop, LLC on). However the things I learnt trying 4GHz were vital to get 3.9GHz stable, so I'm glad I tried.

    You have loads of room to play with at 500 FSB with just 1.2VTT. Fix your Vcore at the maximum you're willing to go with LLC on, then adjust FSB a bit. Now test and try and stablize with first increasing VTT, then lowering MCH ref to 0.720 @ 1.2VTT and try again. OFC also be mindful of MCH Core needs and tRead plus straps/subtimings.

    I think I won't mess with VCORE for now, rather set lower multiplier and focus only on getting some juicy FSB. I think I want 530 or so. Not like I expect to achieve that, but hell I will try.

    Btw 1.26V is stable, just broke 24 hours. Will try 1.2 just so I know what kinda room I have left.
    The chipset heatsink is to be picked up tomorrow btw.
