Default Yay I knew I made the right decision.

I knew my memory was the best for the 680i platform, and I was pretty sure it would be faster than the Corsair PC2-10000, looks like I was right. That means the Corsair Pc2 9136 has no chance against my Corsair PC2 8888 at c4.

Thanks mate

Great going on your memory aswell, thats very good for what it was rated for ie 5-5-5-15 , if you read the review it seems your memory overclock is even more impressive as they found that the 975x is very bad for my memory and they couldn't even get to the rated speed on some 975x boards (understandable as the 975x doesn't have epp, so you have to be patient )

After reading the review I now realize I still can go further . Very soon I am gonna go for a 1600mhz fsb (3.6ghz cpu) with a 3:1 linked/unlinked ( i don't know which yet) memory speed of 1200mhz at 4-4-4-12 with 2.4v. Anandtech still got further to 1233mhz, but I don't think that will work for 24/7 settings and was probably just a record or something. Saying that I hope 1200mhz is okay for 24/7 and is not just a benchmark thing.
This should give me a crazy super pi score.

Default Re: Yay I knew I made the right decision.

Be careful with that 680i. I was running 1200MHz 4-4-4-16 @ 2.45v for a good two weeks, then my board decided to take a crap all over my memory. Ended up having to RMA the board and memory. Hopefully you didn't get a dud board, but you never know. Seems to be happening to too many people running their memory at high speeds.

Might be wise to run slower speeds, 1T, with crazy low timings, since that seems to perform better anyway, at least for me.

No, no pics. Wasn't Orthos stable for more than an hour, but it worked for gaming. Were the best sticks I've ever had, though. Ballistix is great. Don't dare to overclock my memory on this board anymore.

ALthough I hope not you may be right. Kind of scared to do it now. Perhaps I should just6 do 850mhz 3-3-3-9 and 1T at 2.4v like how most people do. Who knows maybe my memory might even allow 900mhz 3-3-3-9 and 1T ? Has anyone ever managed 1000mhz at 1T? If you look at the kingPins's (24k orb) rig you will see he does exactly what you suggested. he has the same memory as me but for some reason he alos just has it at 850mhz 3-3-3-9 -1T instead of the rated 1111mhz 4-4-4-12.

Then again maybe it's all do with the memory you have, as te Corsair dominatr ram was made with the 680i in mind and vice versa but that could jus be clever marketing gobedley gook.

Well done

I assume that is what you have now? with the 4-4-4-5 timings? If som you must get some fast super pi times

Yeah, the PC28888 is the best. I'd have gotten it myself if the local wholesale agent actualy carried the product.
