Default Re: Veteran OC'er needs some advice!

$n][pErMan, you will have to get above the 400 fsb range to keep the NB from over working to hard, once you go to 401 to 450 or higher the timings on the NB are more relaxed where it will be more stable on that motherboard BUT I think your memory is what will hold you back. If you had 8500 memory this would not be an issue you could easily his hit 425x8@3.4 or 475x7@3.3.


Below you can see the difference between the 400 & 401 fsb and how the timings on the NB become more relaxed. Then you can see the performance gain as you move up on the FSB. All of these benchmarks were made with my P5B Deluxe.

400 x 8 1:1 @ 1600 FSB / Mem was @ 800Mhz Vcore 1.375 @ 3.2 - Idle-34c Load-54 (orthos)
SiSoftware - MEM = 7259/7285
SiSoftware - CPU = 29380/20477

PCmark05 - 7421

401 x 8 1:1 @ 1604 FSB / Mem was @ 802Mhz Vcore 1.375 @ 3.2 - Idle-34c Load-54 (orthos)
SiSoftware - MEM = 6761/6769
SiSoftware - CPU = 29463/20523

PCmark05 - 7380

425 x 8 1:1 @ 1700 FSB / Mem was @ 850Mhz Vcore 1.425 @ 3.4 - Idle-36c Load-58 (orthos)
SiSoftware - MEM = 7172/7196
SiSoftware - CPU = 31203/21777
PCmark05 - 7595

450 x 8 1:1 @ 1800 FSB / Mem was @ 900Mhz Vcore 1.55 @ 3.6 - Idle-40c Load-71 (orthos)
SiSoftware - MEM = 7365/7385
SiSoftware - CPU = 33188/22560
PCmark05 - 7893

475 x 7 1:1 @ 1900 FSB / Mem was @ 950Mhz Vcore 1.425 @ 3.3 - Idle-36c Load-58 (orthos)
SiSoftware - MEM = 7814/7828
SiSoftware - CPU = 30532/21296
PCmark05 - 8528
