Comments:

  • When I first got this RAM I thought it was maxed at 285Mhz and 2.5-4-3. I spent a LOT of time tweaking to find the perfect settings to give me the extra Mhz.

    This TCC5 is not very good when it comes to 2.5-3-3 timings. Max I could get to be stable was about 265Mhz.

I have results and settings from two more sets of RAM I can post as well. Plus I have a set of 4000 Redline in the mail. Will post as I get time, great thread guys. :)

Mate,

I'll hit you up with some timing tweaks when I get home. My TCC5 (exact same sticks) could do 285 2.5-3-3-8-1T 3.0V. Sold it to Thunda. I'm sure he can easily hit 300MHz with 2.5-3-4-x timings.

Thanks for your post!

Mine can do about that too but it is not Prime Blend stable. I ran a 32M @ 282Mhz 2.5-3-3 but that was once and it has failed every try since.

The RAM works great at 2.5-4-3 but doesn't with trcd=3. I have tweaked and tried every setting and combination of settings there is, literally weeks of tweeking. I am willing to listen to any suggestions you have though. :) In my experience, everyone is going to have different settings that work the best for their system even if some key settings are similar. For example if I put my RAM in your rig, optimal settings and even max OC would probably not be the same. CPU, BIOS, PS, and the MB itself all are factors that can change what the best settings are.

When I get a chance I am going to retest the 4200 since I have phase now. I am hoping a frozen mem controller might give me an extra Mhz or two. :)

1 of my ram sticks just will not perform with voltage more the 3.1v which is holding me back.
I found that with this ram the dynamic counter enabled lowered my superpi scores

CPU-Z and other programs do not know how to handle the "Officially Unsupported" Dividers, so screen shots of them are useless. Here are some photos of the bios setting pages:

The 7:6 and 6:5 Memory dividers are great. Since my SD, for whatever reason, does not like 300 HTT, it's the only way to run these sticks at their max. I haven't tried massaging other memory parameters to see what they'll go up to, but I can say higher Vdimm does not seem to help. These settings are stable running any test including Prime95 Torture Blend.

I got Crucial BallistiX PC3200 (2x512MB).
Currently I have them running at [email protected],0v (2,9v in Bios) with 3-3-3-5-1T. Didn't try to lower voltage, but perhaps it will still be stable at 2,9v or 300Mhz. Have to try that, but my CPU won't stay stable at 300x9 for now.
Really nice stuff. Before I had them maxed at [email protected],7v with 2,5-2-2-5-1T. Everything above isn't memtest86 stable anymore with 2,5 CAS.

Will post screenshots later.

Comments : GEIL ONE TCCD iis one of the best ever TCCD's i've ever run.I've got two kits of them -one retail which i can run 312Mhz trcd-4 and 292 at trcd-3.Second kit is engineering samples without heatspreaders which i've recieved from Geil for testing purpose.Still looking for some CPU with good IMC

Comments:

It isnt much but its timings I tweaked a bit after I got back from school. They are perfectly stable as well as increase the bandwith compared to my system stock. This really is my first time tweaking these RAM settings on my own so they are still loose. There are also no errors in memtest 5. Most are set at auto but hey, its a start.

I hope this is everything you want S/N. If there is something ealse you would like me to add or run please let me know as well as criutiqe (spelling?) me.

Ouch Son!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ouch

I need to sit down with you once again when I get time and get your Redlines' to shine cause that is really low for this RAM.

Comments:


* - These timings arent almost as tight as they can be however, they are perfectly stable and pass Memtest (all tests) with 10+ passes each and no errors
- Bandwith can be raised by lowering DRAM Drive Strength and DRAM Data Drive Strength along with R/W Queue bypass to also increase max OC. This should only however show a little increase in both areas.

-If you are experincing instability, up the Tras and enable 32 Bit Gran.

-These timings have been mem tested, 32m PI, 3DMark05, CPU Burn-In, and prime 95 for a little over 12 hours along with the occasional hour of BF2. I will prob tweak and burn in a little more before calling it quites on this RAM.

-1.5 in TCL has little to no effect on the timings.

-Yes, Im relitivley new to RAM timings and tweaking

-No testing/tweaking has been done regarding the sticks in diffrent configurations or slots.

Is that good enough for you guys :thup: :shrug: Any criticism besides the fact that there are alot of screen's?
Anything ealse you would like S-N?
I will be back later on in the week to post my final results (1-2 screens :beer:)
Enjoy!
