    Some additional airflow and cooling thoughts:

    • Mounting your cpu heatsink vertically will no longer pull heated air directly from your video card into your push/pull cpu heatsink fans.
    • You can add an additional 120mm air intake cooling fan above your optical drive.
      With this setup you would need to remove the 3 front panel bay covers and it would be best to add a front panel screen filter.
      Naturally you would need to be creative to mount this new fan securely using zip ties, velcro or some home made brackets.
    • You should also get improved airflow by keeping your front case panel door open.


    I've found that using dryer fabric softener sheets very effective as a disposable fan filters.

    @lukevega

    I hope you saw post #40 and post #41, they go together.

    This are some of your settings that you used 3 days ago when you got a BSOD 0x124 one minute after starting Prime95:
    Code:
    CPU Clock Ratio ____________ [9]
    Fine Clock Ratio ____________[0.5]
    CPU Host Clock Control___ [Enabled]
    CPU Host Frequency (MHz)___ [411] --> 9.5 X 411 = 3.905GHz
    
    System Voltage Control____ [Manual]
    DDR2 OverVoltage Control__ [+0.200V]
    PCI-E OverVoltage Control_ [+0.1V]
    FSB OverVoltage Control___ [+0.1V]
    (G)MCH OverVoltage Control [+0.1V]
    CPU Voltage Control_______ [1.41250V]
    First, lower the CPU Voltage Control to 1.40000.

    Make the changes in the numbered list one at a time and boot your system.
    If your system boots to the windows desktop, leave your system idle for 15 minutes.
    Start the Prime95 Blend test.
    You should keep hard copy notes for each test and note any problems that you have, such as:
    • boot loop, with or without the bios resetting to default values
    • BSOD; what is the bugcheck code (e.g. 0x0124), when and where did it happen (e.g. elapsed time in Prime95, while booting, etc)
    • any other errors or problems (BE SPECIFIC, I'm not a mind reader)


    If a test fails, change the next bios setting in the list and leave the earlier setting if it is different, such as when going from (G)MCH OverVoltage Control to FSB OverVoltage Control.

    Make the following changes. one at a time in the following order boot your system and test with Prime9:.

    1. (G)MCH OverVoltage Control [+0.15V]
    2. FSB OverVoltage Control___ [+0.15V]
    3. FSB OverVoltage Control___ [+0.20V]


    During all tests you need to have:
    • HWiNFO64 running with Sensor Logging enabled with a 2 or 5 second interval. where 2 seconds = 2000ms.
    • CoreTemp running to confirm your also show your core temperatures and cpu speed.
    • Memset running with the SPD button pressed along with the >> button to display both memory channels

    .

    The attached screen-shot displays some useful HWiNFO details.

    When errors occur, the devil is in the details.

    When you post your full bios template, please put the following information at the top of every full template post:

    Motherboard: Model: Rev#: Bios Version:
    Cpu: Model
    Ram: Brand, Model/Part#, Link to your ram's specs
    Power Supply Unit: Brand, Model#, Wattage


    This will help thread readers who want to steal....errr....copy your bios template.

    BTW. as I'm typing right now, your thread has 1,367 views so far, whodda thunkit!!

    Any questions?

    Naturally if your system is apart right now for spring cleaning, you won't be testing or posting until your system is back together.

    Cheers profJim!

    That sure is helpful!

    Yeah I really hope that others are benefiting from this thread as much as I am (or at least somewhat)

    Getting closer to exams so haven't been working on the system for a few days - but it's always at the back of my mind!

    I've been studying away from home for a few days but want to get back and check some info out too - I'm wondering if another factor in my low SSD scores is related to this: (AnandTech | An Update to Kingston SSDNow V300: A Switch to Slower Micron NAND) - I'm unsure of what version I have in my system but I'll probably cry a little inside if it's the 5.0.6 firmware...

    I'll run the tests before I go ahead and 'deep clean' my cooler - did you also suggest I rotate it so the airflow is from front to back?

    Forgot to mention I went back to the 3.8GHz settings that ran prime95 stable for 4 hours so will be looking to take it from there. I'll post all the info next time I get a chance.

    Again, thanks for the continued support!

    AS SSD reports your firmware as 520ABBF0 and I don't know if this means you are one of the unlucky ones.

    I started the http://forums.tweaktown.com/storage-...rformance.html thread in August 2011 to provide information links and warn readers about buying a somewhat less expensive SSD that uses asynchronous Nand instead of the somewhat more expensive synchronous Nand.

    The bottom line:
    asynchronous drives = inferior performance
    synchronous drives = superior performance

    At that time, toggle Nand was not available for the mainstream/enthusiast market.

    We will have a better idea where you stand once you have connected your ssd to the native Intel sata2_0 port and rerun the AS SSD benchmark. The fact that you have a 240GB ssd helps somewhat, because the smaller sized ssd's have somewhat lower benchmark scores but they really take a performance hit when the ssd is more than about 66 - 75% full.

    The ATTO ssd benchmark uses compressible data, so its benchmark scores will look much more "normal."
    With an operating system on your ssd, 4K random read and write scores are more important than sequential read or write scores.
    There are some excellent ssd guides and web reviews that explain what it takes for an ssd to perform well.
    I pretty sure that your add-in sata3 controller card's performance in your P35-DS3L is hindering your ssd performance.


    Knowing your current ssd firmware, I'm going to see if I can find out which newer firmware versions are available and if this information will let us determine what type of Nand you have. If Kingston has one large firmware update that covers many models, we might not be able to find out..

    As I said earlier, if your AS SSD performance is similar to my scores in the first two tests, you've got the good stuff.

    Some areas in Europe might have strong consumer protection laws, especially when it comes down to corporate fraud and/or bait and switch business practices. After the OCZ ssd "marketing" fiasco, I permanently swore that I would never again by any of their products. I was somewhat bothered when my used hardware bundle included 8 X 2GB of higher end OCZ ram but I wasn't going to "throw away $250 - $300 of usable DDR2-1066 memory.

    I really like Kingston's higher end memory but at this point I won't be recommending their memory unless they do the right thing and take care of their ssd customers who got suckered into buying an inferior product.

    FWIW, my first ssd's for my systems were OCZ Agility2 60GB asynchronous models that worked well with my older systems, at least until one ssd moved into the slow lane when it got "too full."


    Cpu Temperatures and Airflow


    The cooling fan in the middle of your case's lower compartment draws air in through the lower hard drive cage an should be fine for cooling your hard drives. The main upper compartment has only one air intake fan and its airflow is partially blocked by your hard drives that are in the middle cage. Moving the drives to the lower compartment will provide an unobstructed airflow path which should help with somewhat cooler cpu and video card temperatures.

    I suggest that you work on lowering your cpu temperatures the same way you should overclock where you don't make a lot of changes at one time.

    Right now I'm 4.5 hours into my Prime95, Q9650 4.0GHz tweak test running with lower cpu core voltage. My first IBT and LinX stress tests passed with flying colors, only to have Prime95 barf after 1.5 hours. Right now the 4.0GHz cpu core voltage is only 2 clicks (0.01250 volts) higher than my everyday 3.8GHz settings. I'm going to see how low I can go. My findings will give me a better idea how to lower your Xeon's cpu core voltage.

    @lukevega

    Before you try booting with your ssd connected to the motherboard's sata2_0 port you need to check several things.

    Go into your bios Integrated Peripherals screen and report the settings for SATA AHCI Mode and SATA Port0-1 Native Mode.
    Page 39 in your mobo user manual describes the options, but don't change anything right now.

    Page 37 has the Advanced BIOS Features screen.
    Report the current settings for Hard Disk Boot Priority, First Boot Device, Second Boot Device and Third Boot Device.

    When you installed win7 on your ssd, how was the ssd connected to your system? Sata2 port? Using the sata3 add-in controller card?

    Are you familiar with searching the windows registry for certain values.

    Your AS_SSD screen-shot shows that you are currently using the asahci64 driver which is for your add-in sata3 card.

    Keep in mind that the AS_SSD scores represent the worst case scenario for your SandForce based ssd and does not accurately reflect real world performance. My asynchronous OCZ Agility2 ssd had similar AS_SSD scores and installing it as my boot drive made my P35 feel like it was supercharged and on steroids. Previously I was using a WD Caviar Black hard drive as my boot/data drive while running win2k pro.


    On a happier note, my Q9650 4.00GHz Prime95 Blend stress test just passed the 5 hour mark using cpu core voltage = 1.39375, so far so good
    My everyday 3.80GHz setting uses 1.38750 volts.
    3 of the cpu core temperatures range from 52o(C) to 65o(C) with one rogue core insisting on running 6o - 8o hotter. I've made it more difficult for my system by varying the ambient temperature from 19o - 26o(C).

    Congrats on your overclocking prowess profJim!

    If I remember correctly, I initially installed my SSD via a native SATA 2 port but could never get the system to POST with AHCI mode enabled in the BIOS :/

    I should get back to the system this evening so will see what I can get done.

    Installing windows 7 when your boot drive is plugged in to a motherboard sata port won't let you use AHCI mode unless you first set:
    • SATA AHCI Mode = Enabled
    • SATA Port0-1 Native Mode = Enabled


    If the win7 install is done using IDE mode and you later enable AHCI mode in the bios, when you reboot you will get a BSOD error.

    Check out AHCI : Enable in Windows 7 / Vista - Windows 7 Help Forums for detailed instructions.

    The basic procedure is to enable the following win7 registry keys:
    Code:
    If you installed in IDE mode you'll need to make the following registry changes before you change the BIOS to AHCI Vista/Win7 ONLY
    
    Enable switching between all IDE/AHCI/RAID modes by changing "Start" Values in these keys to 0 (zero), Win 7 / Vista ONLY
    
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Msahci\Start
    
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Pciide\Start  
    
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\iaStorV\Start
    With my P35-DS4 board I enabled IDE, AHCI and RAID in the windows registry using this procedure.

    A web search using: enable ahci in ide mode provides more information.

    Prime95 is alive and well and still running after 7 hours and 20+ minutes.
    It took several tries to get it stable with lower cpu voltage.

    I can't tell you how much more I'm looking forward to repeating two more 8+ hour tests using Prime95 Small FFT and Large FFT tests.

    Time for another pretty picture:

    Finally back at home, moved the SSD to native SATA port 0 and checked the AS SSD benchmark - Yikes!

    Socket 771 Mod Xeon X5460 GA-P35-DS3L Overclock-sata-2-benchmark-png

    Gonna' try to get AHCI Mode working then I'll report back.

    Edit: Just took a look at my registry settings and all the 'Start' values are 0 so I'm not sure why it isn't working yet...

    Are you sure that SATA AHCI Mode = Enabled and SATA Port0-1 Native Mode = Enabled in the bios?

    With these enabled did you save settings and exit the bios?

    Does your win7 Device Manager look like this:
