    now my actual, its much faster than my old settings

    how fast are your super pi 1m and 2m calcs?
    my linx also reports much lower flops than yours!

    EDIT: correct pic now
    higher latency with that timing? obscure?

    Maybe the lack of memory speed as compared to mine affects your L3 a bit????? I don't know dude.

    I can tell you when using windows these AMD chips are quicker. The may not be faster at burning a dvd or other tasks but in windows they are faster. I'm not sure why maybe the memory controller or chipset instructions, but they are snappier.

    Trt, that's th same thing I noticed, they feel so snappier. I personally think that AMD's Hyper transport and the way they communicate with the mem and NB and stuff is a much better design than Intels. That's just my two cents.

    @jr. I'm happy for you bro, imma try to send you that ram today bro.

    Updated to F5 bios, switched it over to Hybrid EC Firmware from normal. No Windows load, but it did unlock to quad although no proof due to no windows boot.

    O btw CP, I was playin Dirt 2 today, didn't change any settings and it played the same. So in theory i'm matching performance of the quad + GTS in gaming.


    EDIT:

    Unlocking was a no go, attempted a few things.

    That's a really pretty box. :D

    250 HT is yawn inducingly easy to hit on Phenom II as long as your board as above garbage level...aka even a budget board will go higher than 250. My Gigabyte MA770T-UD3P $80 budget board tops 330 HT on problem without raising voltage. :cool:

    I'm using a quad....PII 955 C2. I've seen higher than 370 HT with Phenom II's before, and that was a lock multiplier model.

    I have absolutely no doubt that you'll be able to hit 250 HT as long as you're using at least a decent board.
