lol.. yeah I got it... hope Hood isn't reading this though, he's scottish hehehe.harlam357 said:If it's not Thermalright & OCZ on this forum... it's crap! Remember that Mike Myers skit on SNL? "If it's not Scotish, it's crap!"
it's the darnest thing I tell ya... I know well the normal voltages for my RAM... but remember I told ya from the get go that particular PDP RAM was having issues, it wouldn't run 240 in memtest86 without errors with less than 2.92 volts... then at 245 it would error... but if I turned up the volts to 2.95 it did better, @ 3.02v it was error free... when I was pushing it to 246 it gave errors all over the place like 10,000 errors per pass... if I bumped it up to 3.05 only about 100, @ 3.10 about 10.... and I'm like... damn! volt hungry TCCD???? (yes, it's TCCD I checked) but I wouldn't run it that high... I knew it would burn... don't know why, but that RAM just simply perfromed better with volts... @ 2.6 -2.7 @ 245 or higher it wouldn't even POST...harlam357 said:What kind of voltage were you putting to the CH-5s?
I see in the sig that it says you're pushing 3.0 volts into those PDP TCCDs... I'm sure you have, but I'll ask anyway... have you tried lower voltages? 2.6-2.7 range? If that's good TCCD, it shouldn't need 3v to do 240-250 @ 2.5-2-2-11. Basically I'm saying that I wouldn't be so quick to blame the PDP.
On the other hand, I'm sure the CH-5 was lovin' some volts!
as for the CH-5... again... weird!! I burned in the RAM a long time ago @ 3.2 volts, loved it... loved the volts as all CH5 does.... then... one day... all of a sudden and for no reason... the CH5 wouldn't allow the computer to boot with over 3.00 volts to the RAM?!?!?? I have NO idea why... and from that day forward it would loose performance after about 2.95v... it still runs great, no problems with it... sometimes it will boot with 3.10v, but it won't run good and still won't even boot with too many volts...
the weirdest thing? TCCD that went volt hungry... and CH5 that learned to hate volts who knows?
