Sorry for the new reply, but I had too much in the last post to comment upon really.
Started overclocking the CPU, though going to go to bed now I think.
Clocks are at 280mhz x 9, making it run at 2520.03mhz so far.
RAM is running also at 1:1:1 to the CPU, so its fully in sync? That a good thing then?
Its stable anyhow, after 5 minutes of Everest Stress Test
I'll carry on up. Anything I should be wary of when it comes to the RAM? For instance, when I should up the voltage? Its at 2.0 now, plus how far my 800mhz RAM would actually boot at?
300X9 - Now at 2700.05mhz. Haven't had to do anything else, except raise FSB, as memory is still at 1:1:1 to the CPU.
Strangely though, temps haven't gone up at all, and Speed Step isn't on...
3DMark Score 12090 3DMarks (Massive increase over the 10,000 something I was getting before!)
SM 2.0 Score 5009 Marks
SM 3.0 Score 4880 Marks
CPU Score 4299 Marks
I know 3D Mark doesn't mean anything, but it does while overclocking
333x9 = 2997Mhz - 1:1:1 ratio to CPU.
I tried relaxing timings, and even tried not relaxing timings, and RAM failed to post, though I haven't tried upping voltages more yet.
Strangely still, during the RAM check, it kept going up and up. I stopped it at 4GB's, thinking wait...I have 2...
Temps still haven't gone up... Core Temp is still saying below 40 degrees C idle for all cores...
If I could reach 3.6GHZ, which I doubt somehow, I could run at 1:1:1 timings, and get my full 800mhz, and shouldn't get RAM crashes, but I doubt I'll get that far
Did a stress test anyhow for 8 minutes, and then started another one up to take a screenshot:
CPU fans at 1500rpm. Almost silent
Now running at 3060mhz - 340x9
Haven't increased voltages past stock yet, and things are stable. Temps have hardly gone up.
RAM is running 1:1:20 to the CPU, running at 816mhz (816's default running at standard clocks too)
Got CPU now at 3200mhz.
Running at 8x multiplier, with a 400mhz external clock.
Reason I did this, is at this, RAM runs at 800mhz standard clocks at 1:1:1.
Strangely though, Core Temp reads it as a 450mhz external clock, running at 3600. Yet, thats not what I set!
CPU voltage is still standard
