WOW, 8-9-9-24 at 1866 is super tight, those should easily blow away my 2133's. Try to run them at 1T Command Rate. Should gain you approx: 3% to 6% Boost in performance, especially in CPU intensive tasks.

Post some benches :D

They should arrive Monday in the mail (DHL linked with US Post Office). I was really impressed with the timings also. You know I had to pay $108 for those 2 8GB dimms. But I think it is a good idea. It may take some additional stress off the IMC running in 2 banks only and that might allow a slightly higher overclock??? Just guessing. If not at east my performance shoudl improve on some applications like you said. I will try 1T command rate as you suggested. That is almost a rarity now with high speed dimms (1T command rate that is).
I probably wouldn't have popped for the memory. Just got a bummer letter from social security that their not sending me a check for December because when after I retired I had work income ( That is not allowed on early retirements before age 65-66. That income came from my last paycheck that was paid after m,y retirement date and from 6 days of unused vacation pay. They are so ridiculous it makes me sick. I have no savings to live off and my job pension covers my mortgage, heating bill, and a small portion of my credit card debt. Now I will have bad credit for paying my bills next month late. You have no idea how humiliating this is. Social Security Administration is so inept and so poor about communicating their rules it is criminal. Another capitalist bureaucracy that must be destroyed with an egalitarian revolution.

With new ram installed and change in fsb from 230 to 233 =4.68 GHZ
New cinebench 64 bit test results also lowered cpu core voltage to 1.425 v.

Capitalism is OK, the issue is Government Deregulation to ensure the Rich stay Rich, the Rich become Richer and the middle class become poor. This is called Vulture Capitalism. Those same individuals that wrecked the world's economy are the same people that control the Governments hence DE-REGULATION.

A little nerves myself, I go to court tomorrow to see if they drop the political charges against me for organizing hospital workers against cutbacks and closings. They are based on a perjured criminal complaint. If the 2 perjurers fail to submit detailed affidavits to back up their complaint the charges will be dropped. They should have submitted those affidavits weeks ago. I believe they are afraid toi perjure themselves in open court and that is why they are reluctant. I have some 240 signatures on petitions from hospital workers demanding that the charges be dismissed. Tomorrow lets me know if they dismiss or go to trial. It's been a trying 3 months for me My stress levels have been above normal. Not the same fellow I was when I was a young rebel. The will is still there but the body is weaker.

So I got 32GB of G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DD...

To boot and run at 2133 at 9.10.9.28 timings @ 1.6 volts.

Why do they hate me and have the SATA ports laid out by untrained monkeys?
Time to update your systemspecs Steevo! Congratulations!
To day has been a glorious day for me. The low-life knaves who had me falsely arrested and
defamed my character, had not the courage to file a legal affidavit which would have amounted to felonious perjury. So all charges are dropped in my criminal case. A weight has been lifted off my spirit. I have so many people to thank who stood by me and signed petitions on my behalf. Love them all.

Not mine actually, its a server.

9TB of RAID 5 on a dedicated card, 512GB of RAID 0 SSD on the board.



Of course it will be running F@H, and I will need to get a new cooler for the 8350 since I plan on running it hard.

That is the same volts I am using. My HT is @ 2.60GHz. The only time I get stability issues is if I try to OC my RAM.
Bye the way if you like a little vulgar satire check in the TPU UK club. That is if it hasn't been moderated before you read it. Just posted a mild criticism of somebody's profanity.It is hilarious.

Question, now that I am only using 2 of the 4 DIMMs, which 2 should I be using for max OC? The black or red :confused: Checked online but did not find anything about it.

Nevermind, its the RED slots according to the manual.

You might be able to be stable higher. What is your core voltage set at when you are at 4.5 GHZ?

I believe it is bank 1 and 2. Not sure which color but it is the first 2 banks I believe.

I believe it is bank 1 and 2. Not sure which color but it is the first 2 banks I believe.
Currently I have them in the two Black Slots, the manual says to use the two Red for max stability and OC. :D

Question, now that I am only using 2 of the 4 DIMMs, which 2 should I be using for max OC? The black or red :confused: Checked online but did not find anything about it.

Nevermind, its the RED slots according to the manual.
Yes are the red slots the 2 front slots or the two rear slots?? I just was going to tell you I read the manual.

Well guys I always had run a 4 dimm memory configuration in the past until I just changed to 2 8GB dimms. Never thought of checking color codes. I had my ram in a red and a black slot. i am sure that was causing some lock ups I recently got in my browser. it wasn't a voltage issue so that must be the reason why. Also probably inhibited my overclocks. Thanks for bringing it up Super XP. I would never had checked otherwise. Now I'll give one more run of testing o.c. limits Thanks guys.

Just upped the GHZ on the processor to about 4.86 I am uploading all the tests and voltage and temp values I can. Note that I had a couple of lockups in 3D Mark 11 so I upped the volatge all the way to 1.50 v. The Cinebench 64 scores are impressive though.

You might be able to be stable higher. What is your core voltage set at when you are at 4.5 GHZ?
i have the vcore at 1.4v
