Hrmm.. I too am using all four dimms... testing time later tonight. Right now its KILLZONE 2 TIME!
Give me some time, I've only had about three hours to bond with the chip so far.
pssht i killed my 720 in a day
Lol, I like to pace myself
I've got pracitcally a new rig here, the only stuff that carried over from my 9850BE was teh PSUs, HDD and mobo.
lol oh well i'm learning a new machine to DDR3+AM3 is a pain in the ass
Damn, where is everyone getting all the 945ES chips?
Or is it the same chip just making it's rounds?
Well.. I'm just starting off here and I'm starting with my RAM. I'm able to set the RAM to 1066 in the bios, set the voltage and timings however upon restart my RAM timings change to 5 7-7-24 and it seems to give me different options of timings depending on the speed of the RAM. Very confusing. My question is, how can I set the RAM to 1066 and have my 5 5-5-15 timings with this board?
PII X3 720
2x2gb G.Skill Pi Black 1066 2.1v
DFI 790GX LP Jr. 1/21/09 biols.
Is there some sort of option where you have to enable manual timing control? My NF4 DFI board is like that.
Well after reading up on it my only option is to run 5 5-5-16 because unfortunately with this current bios the higher the RAM speed the more lower timing options you have. Strange but true. I'm going to work on something in the mid 900's at CAS 4, that should be the ticket for now.
Thanks! Will do. I have the Crosshair original so I'm pretty used to Asus' layout since they are the only boards I own, but I hear the Crosshair II Formula is different.
there are several moving around
its a wee bit different
I think I killed my motherboard last night.
why dude, whats up with the rig?
Turns out it wasn't the motherboard, I managed to kill my ram within six hours of receiving it time to call newegg.
damn wtf, what did you do to it
So.. does anyone know where I could find some good OC'd bios settings for my 790GX? I pretty much have my RAM figured out so It's time to move to step 2.
i got 4.7ghz this morning i will post a 4 core validation soon and i'm going to try and run pi tomorrow afternoon
Thanks for the info CD. That's badass. 4.7GHz. What are you running for water hardware? lol
Dur, just looked in your specs -_- lol
What ram DID you have? lol
rofl we were running my stock i7 cooler ghetto rigged to his board and a big ass piece of dry ice on it. my i7 was at -26c we got cdawalls to
Damn dude, you know there's an edit button right lol
talking about me? yeah stupid me, I read one and reply one at a time usually :X. lol at the i7 cooler with dry ice.. haha
I'm getting somewhere... Just starting though...
Got a bit more out of it.
