    It seems that it's a lot of trouble to go through. From 1066 to 1150 I won't get much anyway.... maybe 1%~3% improvement.
    I set the voltage by myself. to 2.15v (added 0.3v by manual control).

    What is it you say about OC the CPU to 3.4GHz?
    I have Zalman 9600 cooling.... I think if I want to get the maximum from my RAM than I'll go all the way.

    Any of the other options you mentioned are better?
    Like having tighter CAS/RAS will yield more then having it from 1066 to 1150/1200?

    Unfortunately the 3.2 multiplier is the highest for DDR2 for FSB333, so to run it as DDR-1150 you'd have to overclock it to FSB rate that will allow with a compatible multiplier to run it at 1150.
    Alternatively you can run it at lower speed with tighter timings, as DDR-920 for example it should be able to run with 4-4-4-15 timings without a problem.
    A moderate overclock with FSB360 with 3.2 multiplier is another option, leaving CPU on 3GHz with 8.5 CPU Ratio or overclock it too to 3.4GHz with 9.5 CPU Ratio

    No not much difference if at all between 1066 and 1150, not at 333 FSB anyway.
    Higher FSB will give greater memory performance gain than just higher DDR-rate or better timings will ever give.
    With my DDR-800 I get almost 1GB/s more with 400 FSB than with 333 FSB, and lower latency.

    Ignore the DDR-600 (1200) it's wrong, they are both DDR-400 (800)

    I don't know your board but it looks like it's built for speed, and the E8500 is a good OCer.
    Couldn't find no Zalman 9600 (there are 9300 9500 9700 9800 and 9900 but no 9600) but it would probably hold a minor or moderate OC.
    It's a bit of work but if you are a gamer it'll give you extra kick. Video encoding can also benefit.

    I would love the assistance for having this higher FSB rate as you mentioned. I'm up for a bit of OC work if you can assist me.

    That's my Zalman 9600 cnpu

    As I am not familar with your board I'd leave that to whose who are.
    Meanwhile can also read http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/giga...g-guide-26112/

    Yes, the above linked guide is a GREAT Resource and was written with your board in mind and covers each BIOS setting in depth.

    If you need more help with settings you try, please post your settings here in full that fail for you and I can advise back

    Ohh, 3.20B is fine to use. I forgot your board does not have the 400 straps in it

    You would just need to bump your FSB a bit more (345) than stock to get the same speeds for your memory as you would if you used 3.33

    Ok I managed to do a bit of OCing and here are the details:

    I changed the:
    Multiplier to: 9.0 (instead of 9.5)
    Bus Speed: 360 (instead of 333)
    I got rated FSB: 1440MHz
    CPU: 3.24GHz (instead of 3.16)
    CPU Vcore: 1.33 volts
    CPU temp: 34~38 deg.
    Core temp:52deg. (max 69 at load).

    DRAM: 1152MHz (instead of 1066MHz) Don't forget that this memory is manufactured for 1150MHz and I'm sure I can OC it to 1200Mhz.
    FSB:DRAM: 5:8
    CAS/RAS: 5 5 5 18

    So far the system is stable but I didn't use benchmarking software nor games to verify stability. But I did noticed that the Windows Performance Assessment got my higher scores. I run a dual boot of Vista 64 and Windows 7 (64bit).
    The highest improvement was in graphic and gaming graphic according to Windows 7.
    I got from 6.5 to 7.5, I use ATI Palit 4870 1GB dual edition.

    I don't know if I did right and I sure would like some more advice.

    Thanks :)

    I doubt you need all that vcore for that overclock with E8500.
    What load was this for the 69c?

    Agreed Chike. Vcore looks higher than needed.

    Higher voltages = higher temps for over-volted component. Lowest voltage at which overclock is stable is best. Probably not a big issue for your minor overclock, but becomes a big issue at higher overclocks.

    People use programs like Prime95 to test stability. If it shows errors you are not stable.

    If you have EO stepping 1.3v would prob be fine, maybe even stock voltage. At 400fsb I ran 1.3v. You are not really stressing this cpu till beyond that.





    CPU
    =
    i7 950 - DO stepping - Batch #3014A844
    Cooling = EK HF Full Nickel
    - XSPC RX360 - Laing DDC 18W - XSPC Bay Reservoir
    Motherboard = GA-X58A-UD3R Revision 2
    , BIOS Version = Award FC
    Ram = 3x2gig Corsair TR3X6G1600C8D G
    Video = 2 X Palit GTX460 Sonic Platinum 1GB OC sli
    Monitor = 22" LG Flatron W2242T 1680 x 1050 Case = Coolermaster CM690
    PSU = Corsair HX850
    OS = Windows 7 Professional x64

    actually the BIOS set the vcore by itself, I left it on auto. but I think I can lower it to 1.28, the stock is 1.25

    Going from 3.16GHz to 3.6GHz I had to add 0.06v to vcore, going by that and that the E8500 are of a higher quality 1.26v or even stock would probably be enough.
