    1.7v for 24/7 on AMD is fine for DDR3 id go as high as 1.65v on Intel though. Heh maybe even 1.75v would be okay on AMD i dunno highest stable ive been on my old ram was 1.7v. I dont think its something to do with the ram itself but the memory controller being on the cpu die.

    DDR2 if i remember you could go to like 2.1v for 24/7 or 2.2v.

    My Ballistixs are rated at 1.8v even though they are DDR3 - I do however run them at 1.65.

    they would put your XF to shame tatty!!

    But then all you would need to do is roll up in one of your Challenger tanks and 'blow away' the competition

    the mk1's were great!
    and 1.6 205 gti's
    the uno turbo wasnt much fun in corners,but on straights it felt like you were really flying,probably due to an inferior chassis
    my little brothers first car,a mini gt was properly nippy but i think it was because you felt like your arse was 1mm from the ground!

    Rover 214 Si, my most favourite car I've ever owned. It's the smallest little hatchback I've found that can fit full length fishing rods in with loads of space left for a passenger in the back and all your fishing gear.

    I quite like the E type Jag and thats about it as far as Jags go; obviously like i said before i like the Audi R8 and the Bugatti Veyron but the Zonda R is my favourite car, like in an IF only situation we are talking about i would own that as my Sunday car and drive like a Focus or a Golf for run arounds. Reason being as those cars are practical and less likely to get stolen.

    GranTurismo MC Stradale i cant wait to see how that is, i liked the previous Maserati GranTurismo models.

    Just bought myself the Zowie Celeritas Keyboard from OCUK. KustomPCs decided not to buy in stock this month, they said they would have stock by the end of this month but have bought in stock of other items and decided to get keyboards at a later time due to budgeting. They already made me await about 2 months for new stock so i decided to just get it now. Not really much of a price difference either. Be sure to let you all know what its like and that.

    thats the same with all ADSL companies, ADSL companies advertise the cap and not the actual speed, you can't complain when its unlimited Data for £10 a month , thats better then most 8mb tarrifs

    Ok guys here's the deal

    I won a competition to go to another competition. There are hardware prizes from Asus there. The competition (the one I won a place in lol) is an overclocking one. Presumably CPU overclocking but there may be some GPU overclocking involved too.

    I have not tried overclocking sandy bridge yet (don't have one) but presumably this is what will be going on. I understand there is a set clock (100mhz +- 5ish?) and an unlocked multiplier on a K series. What I don't know about are memory clocks and voltages. Should I clock the memory above 1600 mhz and what volts should I put through it? I understand vcore should be kept to about 1.45 max (presumably we will be using air coolers lol) is there any chance of a speed improvement with more?

    Also I have no idea what kind of clocks to expect from newer graphics cards. I can test them with furmark and all but I read some newer ones actually underclock in stress tests? Any tips at all would be great. I'll let you know how I did (and what I won) tomorrow night.

    There will be about 20-23 other people there and the competition is in London.

    Cheers for any tips!

    I think the Most you can set the base clock is 107 and no higher(or corruption will ensue)i will find the details to support this,but i am pretty sure the 59x multi limit (5.9ghz) can be bested by upping the base clock by a fraction.
    1.45v is absolute max on air(more heat=higher temps=less chance of completing your benches at those clocks)though of course its all down to luck,some 25/2600k's wont do above 5 ghz.at all.

    580s downclock in furmark etc tho the bios can be flashed with a modded one.(its due to current inrush)
    I assume the gear is there so you just play with whats available?that pretty much rules out vmods etc.
    i did hear about one guy being called out at such an event because he flashed the mobo he was to use with a "special bios" this was the MSI event last year.

    You would expect Asus to have there highest parts on show so the downclocking may not even be an issue.1ghz is possible with a 580 but i have not heard of this using air cooling,most was around 900mhz.I don't know what mileage you can get out of directCU.
    this might help:

    I think you are screwed.

    but heres a few tips anyway.

    Keep temps no higher then 70-75'c.

    Air cooling - never go above 1.4
    Water - maybe 1.45-1.5
    LN2 - skies the limit - 1.6v even

    but the silicon in SB chips have been known to start degrading around 1.5v so you gotta stay under that as much as you can unless otherwise.

    Leave the base clock and increase the multi - You can do it another way too buy increasing the baseclock to something like 104-105 and have lower multi. that should OC the ram too that way so keep an eye on it. youd be lucky to get anything high then 105 on the base clock. maybe 110 if your really lucky.

    if you want to OC via the baseclock, it takes a lot more tinkering and more skill.

    You are in over your head on this one IMO.

    We'll see tomorrow won't we :) thanks for the help. Any tips on memory speeds/timings for best benches would be great.

    I'm going to look for the inevitable TPU sandy bridge oc thread and read through that too.

    no, but the fibre optic cables are about £20-£30 a month if you want unlimited bandwidth and all of them have fair usage policies
