Default Re: Basic FX59xxx bios changes


01. My first idea is not functioning. Memory is fixed at 700MHz regardless of 2D/3D.

02. in the bios, memory latency is set at 07 03 0F 43. Should I change it to 07 03 0F 40???

03. Throttling can be set at 3D Clock. I did and @ 500MHz, 3DMark03 freezes. It will run fine on 485MHz. At 485MHz, I measured the temp. is 67C while ambient temp. is 33C.

04. My MSI FX 5900XT Memory is Hynix 2.5ns. At 850MHz, memory temp. is 71C. What temp. is safe for it???

05. What clock settings you prefer now in these conditions. I'm thinking about 450 Core but not sure about memory, it depends on you.

Thanks for the reply. I'm greatful to you.
