    I don't know for sure, but I would say they both play a part...

    (Especially the circuit of memory-to-FSB-to-CPU & vice-a-versa transit loop... DMA access &/or AMD HyperTransport/LDT, notwithstanding either imo @ least)

    :)

    W2hCYK - HOLD OFF ON WEEKLY UPDATE FOR A BIT, see my post

    Give me 10-15 minutes from the timestamp on this post on my last edit @ the bottom of it (that last unit should be done then in time for your Wed. update)...

    Finishing up my last unit for this week!

    (98% now (as of this edit))

    That will be my "100th unit" too!

    (Well, not really - 21 or so are PURE b.s., result of my "infamous" overclock error in combination w/ the "-forceasm" console mode client switchwork I use... ugh, that COST me large in the "score" area, the one I am MOST concerned about no less!)

    Still, it will send me into the 9000's range of score too... not enough to catch YOU though this week... oh well!

    Anyhow/anyways:

    I got "caught up" in the overclocking & memory re-tightenings game, per the screenshots above... all as a result of doing the "ScienceMark 2.0" benchmark testings this week!

    (I haven't run units for F@H very much @ all, except for when I sleep, & that too, was overlooked once or twice this week!)

    :)

    * I KNOW: "Excuses, excuses" on my end, but it's all 100% straight-up facts, documented herein...

    SO, that said?

    WELL - We'll be coming @ you ALL this week though, trying to take over 3rd place here from you again, my man!

    APK

    P.S.=> And, @ higher o/c'd rates than ever before here, lol... coming at ya baby! apk

    Update away W2hCYK! Got my "100" units done here...

    W2hCYK:

    Update the first page as you see fit!

    (I am all done "cooking" unit "100" here (loosely termed 100, more like 80 actually & you KNOW why, lol!))

    Should show 100 for me by now I would think on the team output page... Well, no it doesn't yet, oddly! Must be some "time lag" in there before it too, updates!

    Oh well! Anyhow... (EDIT PART - team page is updated, shows me @ 100 now & 9000 scoring range too - UPDATE AWAY MAN!)

    :)

    InfraRed!

    (Cool... )

    * Good to see you as a mod are joining the fold & w/ the rig you "jacked up" via that WILD volt-mod thing you did (VDroop stuff you wrote me on in PM)!

    I scored 985.67 now, went from 3.15GHz to 3.3GHz, and now a 1:1 ratio with my ram.. best I can do, and I'm putting 1.53v through this prescott.. argh.. trying to deal with this till the conroe! :-D

    Cooking up some more units!

    *edit, oh and btw, stats update now finished. :)

    That's QUITE a jump, scoring-wise, on ScienceMark (from 881 -> 986 on your end) & @ a 1:1 non-divider using memory setup (I have to get better RAM, no questions asked, imo & those of others - it holds me down from better o/c's).

    Here is mine for your reference:

    My latest score & stability (via ScienceMark 2.0) is as follows, having switched from using an 11x multiplier X 249mhz FSB to 12x multiplier X 231mhz FSB):

    CPU-z 1.35 CPU-mhz data (~2773mhz - a 373mhz overdriven gain):

    [​IMG]

    CPU-z 1.35 RAM-mhz data (~185/200mhz - a "ROI" of 93%):

    [​IMG]

    (This is w/ out setting my BIOS memory setting of RAS Precharge to 2, it is still 3 here but I used the older photo of it when I had it @ 2T for a test of what memory settings I can/could play with to try "tighten" them some more still yet)

    ScienceMark 2.0 score (increased from 1392 -> 1401.11 (my highest yet on 12x multiplier thusfar, & even almost beating my old mark of 1401.20 done on 11.5x "fractional" & frowned upon multipliers + higher FSB @ 249mhz)):

    [​IMG]

    My BIOS data for overclocking used:

    LDT DATA:

    CPU HTT Frequency = 4x

    DRAM CONFIGURATION:

    CAS# Latency Tcl = 2
    Min RAS# Active Time Tras = 5T
    RAS# to CAS# Delay Trcl = 3T
    Row Precharge Time Trp = 3T
    Row Cycle Time Trc = 10T
    Row Refresh Cycle Time Trk = 13T
    Read to Write Trwt = 3T
    Write Recovery Time = 3T
    1t/2t = 1t

    JUMPER FREE CONFIGURATION DATA:

    O/C Profile = Manual
    CPU Frequency = 231mhz
    PCI Clock = 100mhz
    DDR Voltage = AUTO (cannot do over 2.6v on my RAM, tried it already 2x)
    Chipset Voltage = 1.6V (max)
    HT Voltage = 1.25V (max)
    CPU Mult = 12x
    CPU Volt = 1.5V (max)

    :)

    That is about as good as I can get it...

    That's the spirit! We now have new members too, in InfraRed, which is good to see as well & he's using his "VDroop" modded system no less (pretty cool stuff, have him run that by you, & see some WILD hardware modding in action)!

    Yup! Caught it... ugh, now it's time for coffee... I need the "mental overclock" today, couldn't sleep in this muggy heatwave!

    Yup, I "hung up" again in "hibernate" type power mode & couldn't recover... it's been hot here lately & I "pushed" a new overclock (noted above @ 12x multiplier now vs. 11x) & it wouldn't come back.

    "-forceasm" again probably... all my other stuff never has a problem & the system stays up & running solid (even games for long hauls like 45 minutes or more (typically how long I stay @ them nowadays)).

    * It's noted (as you pointed out) NOT to use that w/ an overclocked rig, & it's showing here...

    (OH WELL!)

    ordered a P4 1.6GHz and a Celeron 1.8GHz, both 478's. If neither overclock like a banshee, I'm going to toss them into seperate folding rigs. otherwise, if it overclocks like mad, I will use it till it blows, and then use as a keychain.

    $5 each too! :)

    going to overclock the 1.8GHz celeron first... SL68D

    Code:
    Part number	BX80531P180G128
    RK80531RC033128
    Package	478-pin FC-PGA2
    Socket/Slot type	Socket 478
    Processor speed (MHz)	1800
    Bus speed (MHz)	400
    Clock multiplier	18
    L2 cache size (KB)	128
    Manufacturing technology (micron)	0.18
    Core voltage (V)	1.75
    Case/Junction temperature (°C)	77
    Core stepping	E0
    CPUID	0F13h
    and the Pentium 4 1.6GHz.. SL5VH

    Code:
    Processor core	Willamette
    Part number	BX80531NK160G
    RK80531PC025G0K
    Processor markings	1.6GHZ/256/400/1.75V
    Package type	478-pin FC-PGA2
    Processor speed (GHz)	1.6
    Bus speed (MHz)	400
    L2 cache size (KB)	256
    Qualification sample	QFF9
    Previous stepping	SL5US
    Manufacturing technology (micron)	0.18
    Core voltage (V)	1.75
    Case temperature (°C)	75
    Core Stepping	D0
    CPUID	0F12h
    Core multiplier	16
    My Motherboard goes all the way to 1.95v for the CPU, ROFL!!! But that only is a .20 overvolt maximum, unlike the newer cpu's that you can take up the voltage to like.. a .65v increase. I may do some VID mods. So I should have a bit of fun. I think I'm going to remove the IHS's for a better cooling solution also. I dont think either of these are epoxied on, correct?

    Overclocked the 1.6GHz P4, got 2009MHz on 1.95v, loool.. board was overvolting up to 2.1v... ROFL... never had a cpu that could take that voltage. and my temps were 25c on air cooling, Ambient was 28!!! LOOOOL

    I ordered a E6600 from www.tankguys.com They have wonderful customer service, and they e-mailed me with a time estimate of the week of the 15th of august for arrival. I dont have any other hardware yet, so Im not in a rush to get it now. At the end of the summer(4 weeks for me) I'll have another $600, which i'm going to spend on my 2 hard drives, PSU, Motherboard, and some cheap ram to get me going.

    Then for my bday I'll get whatever card is $400 at the time from my parents and bday cards in the mail/some of my pocket money, and usually my grandparents are very generous and give $500, so I'll probably get my RAM and a watercooling rig..

    I am so excited!!! ROFL..

    Ok back to folding now.

    O yea, the crappy celeron comes in today @ 3pm.. lol.. 1.8GHz 1.75v.. I should try some weird cooling on one of these. $5 a piece is amazing. :-D

    OH, I agree...

    Especially after seeing the power-ranges of many of the systems folks use here, in this thread (see the score chart, get an idea of what I mean):
