    I recall a user that had an AMD board that does not support SLI, unaware of it he happily ran SLI configuration setup.

    It appears that there are some SLI hacks available on the web, but will they work?
    One of the more promising hacks fools the SLI software into thinking you're using an X58 motherboard.
    I'd hate to buy an additional card for SLI only to find out that it won't work.
    Much as I'm happy with my graphics setup, if I were buying right now I'd look closely at an AMD 6950 setup for CrossFireX. Naturally they'll be better deals in 3 or 4 months. I wonder when PCI-3 Gen3 cards will arrive and will they really need all/most of the enhanced bandwidth? Time will tell.

    Small fft test failed at 32k

    I have decided to venture into prime95 now,...in an attempt to iron my crinkles (errors)

    I ran single FFT tests at increasing increments for 15 mins each,..making changes until they passed.
    I don't know if this was a good idea but took a lead from Chike asking me to test 8k min/max and quoting "if it fails.. we have a winner." Where I was then able to Pass after changes and retests.

    With my limited knowledge I ran from 8k increasing the next by a factor of 2 (It felt right but...it's a start)
    ie: I ran:--8,16,32,64,128,512, and all though not small FFT's I also ran 1012, 2048. All done at 1x15mins

    Again with my limited knowledge I created a rule of thumb that these would be backwards compatible. I could easily be wrong but further testing will help answer my own question.

    So, as I'm trying to prove a point to myself...

    Results: Bios 467x9

    I obviously need to run small FFT test at length 3-4hrs followed by large FFT 3-4 Hrs.and then Blend..
    But,..

    Back to IBT. with new Bios settings: 467x9

    IBT Result:
    PASSED
    Nb://view right side image as left is stock 3GHz comparison
    Ga Ep45 UD3P rev 1.0 Bios assistance-stock-vs-oc-4-2-png
    This is my tightest group of Gflops yet.............

    From optimized stock CPU frequemcy, it's easy to calculate.
    OC GFlops = (OC frequency) / (baseline frequency) x (baseline GFlops)
    My Avg Gflops are:

    467: 29.1801 (4.2GHz)
    Divided by
    333: 21.1530 (3GHz)
    multiplied by
    21.5296
    Equals
    30.1932
    29.1801 are my results..........??????

    I need to be away for a while but will run further Blend Tests later,...

    Actually,,..looking back I should try with returning back the CPU PLL to 1.57 I'll give it a try testing

    128k
    CPU Ref 0.7300
    CPU PLL up 1 to 1.59 But now 1.57
    FAILED
    and with Vcore 1.33125

    How exactly do you make Av. GFlops for 3GHz are 21.5296 when max GFlops are 21.18(21.1799)?

    Yes there is, but smaller.
    There is an E8400 @ 4.2GHz powered one in your windows.

    And about the other question?

    To Chike.
    Actually,,..looking back I should try with returning back the CPU PLL to 1.57 I'll give it a try testing

    128k
    CPU Ref 0.7300
    CPU PLL up 1 to 1.59 But now 1.57
    FAILED
    and with Vcore 1.33125

    Lets see....
    In my test results post I increased the CPU PLL and failed,..later I increased the Vcore.
    I did not retest with CPU PLL at the original setting.

    5a.
    128k
    CPU Ref down 1 more to 0.7300
    FAILED (test#14)

    5b.
    128k
    CPU Ref 0.7300
    CPU PLL up 1 to 1.59
    FAILED

    5c.
    128k
    CPU Ref back up to 0.745
    CPU PLL 1.59
    FAILED

    Hmmm...with errors of rounding 0.5 expecting 0.4 or less.

    5d.
    128k
    Vcore up to 1.33125 (1 click)
    CPU Ref 0.745
    CPU PLL 1.59
    PASSED
    I now have re tested

    5d.as
    Vcore up to 1.33125 (1 click)
    CPU Ref 0.745
    CPU PLL 1.57
    and it PASSED[/QUOTE]

    However in earlier tests

    3.
    32k
    FAILED

    3a.
    32k
    with CPU PLL up 1 to 1.570
    PASSED

    4.
    64k
    FAILED

    4a.
    64k
    CPU Ref down 1 to 0.745
    PASSED
    I didn't increase Vcore prior to 3a and it passed.
    I am only going by what I have learnt.
    The results tell me that CPU PLL @1.57 works without increasing Vcore
    Now,. The real question is what is better?
    Higher Vcore or Higher CPU PLL???
