Thread: Need help optimizing X3220 (Q6600) OC on GA-EP45-UD3L

    Further optimizations:

    Vtt: 1.3V
    MCH Core: 1.2V

    Was able to run Prime95 for 12 hours before I stopped it.
    I was wondering, do you think I may be able to increase my memory frequency to what its rated at, 1066 MHz, or would that introduce too much instability? What would be a good System Memory Multiplier to begin testing at?
    CPU: Intel Xeon X3220
    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3L
    Memory: 8GB PC2-8500 OCZ2G10664GK
    Graphics Card: BFG Geforce GTX 260 OC
    Hard Drive: WD500GB
    Power Supply: Corsair HX620
    Case: Antec
    CPU cooling: Tuniq Tower 120
    OS:Windows 7 Ultimate x64
    Monitor: Acer H233H

    Nice to see you were able to lower thing a bit, surprised to see MCH Core come down that low with 8GB.

    You may be able to get more out of your memory, but not sure with 8GB. I do know you would need to loosen things up and raise voltages again though before trying, and then you might only get 50-100 or so more Mhz, so it might not be worth all the hassles it would take to try but it's up to you.

    I'd either try more FSB using the same memory multi, or try using 2.66D from the FSB you are on now, that would give you 1005Mhz. You will need to loosen up the timings though for sure, especially tRD, MCH Core will need to be raised again, and you may need a tad more tRFC
