yes, but you have 1066 rambus, not 800, right?MrNatural said:Well I've done the mod and right now I have my vrimm voltage at 2.75v. I have my FSB running at 193/772 and my RDRAM running at 193/579/1158. Doing just fine right now. Be sure as mentioned to get your POT set to where there is no resistance or you could find yourself with no memory. I'm using a 10K pot and when I powered up even with it set at the very bottom of the POT resistance it still booted with the vrimm voltage at 2.7v so I didn't have to bump it very much at all.
Redphex said:yo ... decided to add the VRambus mod to my TH7
after some tries with a 10K Poti i set the Voltage to 2.7V
had it by mistake up to 3.6V without having my Rimms goin' up in smoke.
let's see if there's some stability improve in for me
hmmm. disappointing. even pumping the Vrimm up to 2.9v won't give any significant improvement. the stability-limit is still around 510MHz.
Eggroll said:Hello all. This is my first post so please gentle.
I hate to show my ignorance about matters regarding electronics to start out with, but I'm confused about something. Above, Mr. Natural says "Be sure as mentioned to get POT set to where there is no resistance or you could find yourself with no memory." Then in "Overclocking - AMD Motherboards - Get Your Volt Mods Here," Doctor says "On some mobo's, the 47K isn't enough resistance to disable the mod completely by raising it to the max, so PPL have been using 100K pots with good results." This thread continues with posts implying that "to the max" means a higher number than 47K like 60K or 100K or whatever.
I can't reconcile these two statements because to my electronics/physics blocked brain they appear to be saying the opposite things - one, that you start with no resistance and slowly increase it to raise the voltage and, the other, that a high resistance disables the mod and you work your way to the mod by slowly lowering the resistance to increase the voltage.
I ask because I want to do this mod with the new setup I'm putting together and I don't want to fry my RDRAM. Any clarification would be greatly appreciated. I know this is something simple like that V=IR thing, but I'm telling you, I'm blocked.
jdmcnudgent said:thanks buddie, am going to do it right now. now, by increasing the vrambus voltage, am i going to need to have a fan on the rimms to run at 150 fsb, and will i still need the diffenential at 6x with the mod? also, i was thinking of taking off the covers and removing the heat tape under the cover. will this make these run cooler, even without heatsinks on them and just a fan? or should i just leave them on and use the fan? thanks mr natural.
jdmcnudgent said:ok, did mod, very nicely done too. now problem is i hang at 26 every time i try to boot. had the rambus set at 300, diff at 6x, vrambus at 2.72, and i tried the fix option, and the divider option, with no luck. what should i do? i couldnt even boot to 2300. i need some help. thanks.
jdmcnudgent said:slowly but sure buddie, im at 2609 right now and steady moving up. mem is at 780 right now, and i know that it will at least do 920.well, i cannot run 3dm2k1se at this speed. it craps out, and starts back up fine, but it is saying that my video card has caused the problem. what should i do?
