    ok got my geil black dragons (4gb ddrII800 c5 set) this week and am dissapointed with them, they wont overclock at all (well managed 833mhz :() tried to run them at 1000 from everything ranging from 6.6.6.18 2.0v-2.4v and everytime i cant get it to boot.

    anyways managed to loosen the timings a bit (so far 5.4.4.15 2.1v, might try for 4.4.4.15 later but sure ive tried that before and it wouldnt post),

    what are these benches like from everest, any good or?

    memory read 7576MB/s
    memory write 6057MB/s
    memory copy 6510MB/s
    Latency 59.0ns

    im pretty sure the C5's are the same as the C4 but didnt make the cut at C4 hence the losser timings, but hardly any OC at all :(

    keep them at 5-5-5-15 cas 4 needs more volts over cas5 for the same clocks ;)

    Well don't put 2.4v through them obviously you'll kill them. Looked at your board. You do have an aging board, great board though, I owned a p5b and loved it. 2 things. First, and I can't remember, is there an option in bios to raise sub-timing trfc? If so, raise that. Secondly, bump nb voltage. 1 of those 2 things should help you achieve your objective. Its not the ram, its the board dude.:p

    strange you think its the board, i could hit 1000 with my supertalent easily, and im not running them at 2.4v there RATED upto 2.4v so if they fry there still within the limit there supposed to run at and i can rma them if i chose to run them at 2.4v :toast: (which im not keen on lol )

    trfc is at the max i think, and ill try raising the north bridge see if that helps any but like i said ill probably just sell them on and get some reapers :rockout:

    Well, just kinda big, and I didn't think they overclocked super, like a good set of Ballistx:p

    Which version of Everest? 3.50?

    Just as a comparison, FYI, I have DDR 400.

    Read 6000 MB/s
    Write 5400
    Copy 4000
    Latency 64.1
