    4-5C is what it is all about!

    Tell you wife you are going to go with Water next! She'll freak out

    Sure is, you'd have to be happy with that result.

    Water would be nice but I'm not ready for the debate at home and I want a new video card soon, better FPS boost and I can put the 512 GTS in my sig. rig and drop the heat outside the case.

    How do you like <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><st1:place>Vista</st1:place> 64 and the extra two sticks of ram, when I went to four sticks it dropped my latency slightly in Everest as I remember and I took a hit on the 3DMarks but it was around the time I went to SP3 also. Thanks for the suggestion and the advice on the 120.

    Found this over at PCSTATS http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/intel_e8400/ , check the gaming performance gains between the stock E8400 and the clocked one (4.2), I was little shocked. Also a little fodder for the 2 vs. 4 core debate.

    I'm liking x64 Vista with 4GB though I took a major hit latency wise from 7-7-7-20-1N to 8-9-9-23-1N

    the problem (as far as I can see) appears to be the tRFC

    the first pair had a tRFC of 48 where the second pair have a tRFC of 59 which effectively means I can get it down any lower than 60, I'm still tinkering though, never say die

    I had a quick skim of the linked review, he was pushing insane voltages into that poor chip, it wouldn't last long at those.

    Suicide runs FTL

    EDIT: Now running 8-7-7-20-1N , performance level 8, tRFC is down to 48 but I can't get it to boot at CAS7 though, still tinkering

    :)

    When I first read it I was a surprised that he was pushing 1.45v, more so 1.55v, way beyond anything I'd run. Top end of the VID range is my usual limit, might push a little more for a 32M PI run, but not for the time needed for the article written. I'd like to have seen the temps. I always run into my temp limit, long before my Vcore max is reached.

    Since I know very little about your MB or DDR3 I stopped by the Asus forum and did a little reading. A lot of memory questions, same for my MB, until the latest BIOS anyway. Did notice a few were running their Clock Twisters on light / lighter. Here are some results, Rampage BIOS 0403 with my P5E using Everest, cache & memory bench.

    _____ Read - Write - Copy - Latency
    Auto: 8670 - 6347 - 7142 - 57.6
    Lighter: 8397 - 6345 - 7109 - 60.4
    Light: 8546 - 6350 - 7126 - 59.7
    Moderate: 8604 - 6349 - 7139 - 57.8
    Strong: 8667 - 6345 - 7146 - 57.6
    Stronger: 8680 - 6348 - 7143 - 57.6

    Five runs each, mean shown, first time I've been able to bench all settings. No changes to any setting shown in MemSet at each Twister setting. I switched to Strong and started experiencing random lockups and I couldn't Prime, went back to Auto ran nine hours. This was done with a Q6700 @ 10x350, RAM 5:8 @ 1120 5-5-5-15-5-42 P/L5. With the latest BIOS 903 for my board I couldn't post at the highest setting using the same setup. I've spent some time trying to find out what the setting does in full but have not had much luck. If this is a stability issue for certain RAM disregard, as I just skimmed the posts during lunch.

    Your bios is slightly different to the P5E3 by the looks.

    Our Ai Clock Twister offers Light, Moderate, Strong
    My Transaction Booster is set to Enabled - Boost Level 2

    Boost Level directly affects the Performance Level (as shown in Memset), anything higher than Boost 3 or Relax 3 will cause no boot.

    I have a lot more info on how it works at home but you may find this an interesting read(although it is P5E3) Link

    I'm experimenting to see if I can get a similar result Read/Write/Latency out of my memory fully tweaked at 1066MHz 7-7-7-20-1N as I'm getting out of it at 1333MHz 8-7-7-20-1N, so far I'm getting "close, but no cigar"

    At 1333Mhz 8-7-7-20-1N I have to run Ai Clock Twister set to Light and Transaction Booster at Boost level 2 or it won't boot, POST is fine it just doesn't make it into Windows.

    Currently at 1066MHz 7-7-7-20-1N I can run AI Clock Twister set to Strong and Transaction Booster at Boost Level 2, tonight testing continues and I'm aiming for Clock Twister - Strong and Boost Level 3

    I actually read that review, used it to help figure out the BIOS settings I didn't recognize, (most of them) but didn't pay much attention to the DDR3 info, using an article about the Rampage ROG at the same site for my memory info. The Rampage review sort of trivialized the Clock Twister so I've stayed away from it, plus I always had problems when I did play with it, till I started using the Rampage BIOS. With the native P5E BIOS I'm using at present I was able to bench it on Strong and had these differences with Everest: -7.2, Same, +23.8 and +.06. Auto to Strong, based on 5 runs each setting, I haven't tried to see if I can keep it stable. There are some gains there so I'll be playing with it more in the future. The P5E BIOS has the same Clock Twister offerings as your BIOS.


    So how is the experimenting coming along. With those memory settings from your post what kind of Performance Level, are you getting? That is one thing I miss about the Rampage BIOS, you set the Performance Level / tRD directly. none of this offset stuff, With P5E BIOS I've had the Transaction Booster subtract 1,2 & 3 from my P/L at Enable 0. One time I had posted with a P/L of 6, setting 5 in MemSet worked so I set enable 0 to subtract 1, no post, tried disable 0 had my 5, subtracted 2 and added 1 back? Sorry a little rant.


    I just broke 1220 with my ram, 1150 stable had been my best, with this new BIOS and the E8500 I finally really like this board. 9X458 1.32v RAM 4:3 1221 5-5-5-15-3-45 2N tRD6 2.18v, 4 hours OCCT stable, needs a little more time.


    Need to go put in some face time in the living room.
