    So I clock my chip up and put ram timings at 4-4-4-12 and my latency runs around 58ms
    well when I tighten it up to 4-4-4-10 it goes to around 60ms...

    Anyone explain this?

    Ram just doesn't like the setting, or it wants a little more juice for the setting. I've seen similar scenarios on my own rigs.

    Thanks I'll try to knock up the power a bit and see what happens.

    I really want to push this chip to like 4 ghz but I almost don't want to increase the voltage on my chipset...

    PS- this other new system is a e6750 :) G0 FTW! Even clocked at 3200 it sits about 19c on air, full loaded never passes 30c.

    19c on air?! do you keep your rig in a freezer or what?

    does your air cooler have alcohol injection or what i seriously doubt your geting 19C on air unless you somewhere where the outside air is cooler than 19*

    19C = 66.2F. I doubt it's 66F in your pc room, and even if it was you would need a damn good cooler for that :p maybe a bad sensor?

    Hmmm, wasn't paying attention to that. It's most likely a misreading from the program used. Try some others to see what you get.

    Some chips, like my former Brisbane, just don't give accurate reading, either. But the readings are still good to compare changes in the same system. AKA: It's still good for keeping track of the effects of your settings, in the ways of temp differences compared to stock.

    No its about 65ish this room normally... All programs give me the same numbers, and I really have no reason to think its not correct, it has a AC Freezer 64 Pro, AS5...

    Everything looked perfectly where I would expect them with my e6420 that was on this board before..

    Seemed a little odd, but it is pretty cool in here now and the the heat sink is always cold to the touch...

    Dunno anything is possible so it could be off, but either case its always cold.

    I'm really comfortable around 60F honestly..

    Throw on a sweatshirt and enjoy. Besides my pop stays cold longer. :laugh:

    Did you change the FSB?
    = impossible.
    Coretemp v0.95.4 too?

    I've found that mem latency is all about finding a sweet spot. i messed around with my CellShock memory for a long time because I wasn't satisfied with performance. I tried going DDR2-800 @ 3-3-3-6 but latency would go all the way up to around 68ns. After fiddling around in the BIOS I finally found it it seems that the P35 NB like the older P965 "likes" ratio 4/5 better than 1/1. So right now I'm running DDR2-1000 @ 4-4-4-12 which gives me a latency of 51ns. And as if that wasn't enough the memory bandwidth has gone through the roof :) All I can say is this. Read up on your memory and NB on the web and then try a lot of different scenarios, it worked for me and I think it could do you some good.

    Just got that actually, it finally gives me 26ish on each core under max load 38ish.

    Sounds a bit more normal :)
