    Here are results from xBench. I have no idea what they mean :-)

    Hopefully they will make some sense to you :-) ??

    No it does not make any sense :-)

    Thats a "Mac" program.... You have Mac OS X installed???? The program Chike is having get is for windows. You need to have windows installed to use the tools and stuff that will be suggested here. Mac OS can run on this hardware but is not supported at all here.

    Ahh since you already have 8GB of memory, no real need to purchase more!

    That Crucial should be fine for you and what you want to do

    If you think the RAM I currently possess will work well for my purposes, then great!
    I am unfortunately unable to run any of the benchmark software that would otherwise give a better idea of how my system is performing.

    BUT, if you would perhaps give a general recommendation on how to setup my bios, I would be eternally grateful.


    And please note, that I am not looking for "support" per se, just your opinions. thoughts on how I might make my system its best. If something goes wrong and I fry my Mobo, CPU, RAM or eggs, I shall not hold anyone here responsible, and I will NOT be sending anything to any company with an RMA. I do all of this, using your suggestions entirely at my own risk.

    Now, let's crank this baby up!

    Thoughts?

    You can try to set optimized settings blindely.
    Lowest tRD (Static tRead Value in BIOS) I was able to use with 333MHz FSB 5-5-5-18 timings was 6, and both channels driving strength set to 800.
    400MHz FSB with the same timings and tRD 8 gave a little better performance almost good as 1066 with 333MHz tRD 5.

    Setting lower tRD will require some stress test, but I am sure you can find Prime05 for OSX.

    64-bit Geekbench seems to give comparable results on Windows and OS X, these are my results at stock speed, notice memory performance and bandwidth are almost same:
    Windows 7

    OS X


    And here are results of MaxxMem2 and Xbench at same speed:




    Same set of tests running at my normal 4.25 GHz settings:

    I was able to use GeekBench using Rosetta. The file is here:

    I consider myself very, very lucky to have your assistance in my first OC foray.

    Sincerely,

    If you can't get 64-bit version of Geekbench then you should run 32-bit version, that is free and on OS X there isn't much difference in results. Running Rosetta version doesn't really tell you anything, it's just too different.

    Apparently I can run both, however this requires that I disable "Quartz" - which I am not sure how to do on 10.6?
