no mechaninal parts so they dont fail as easy.

(supposed to be)FASTer than regular drives.

small

um....

idk.
so you can basically use them as hard drives? Of course, their capacity is not much but, good enough for like a bench rig for example?

after bashing my head on my desk for 2 days i think i have gotten somewhere.

how stable is that clock? What was the issue that had you banging your head on your desk?

In other words, what were you doing wrong before that you could not reach that clock?

the board has too many options in the bios.

also,

there is no "feel" for when your close on settings. on 775 boards you can tell when your getting close to stable. this thing is a total shot in the dark.

It's all about the right mix I swear.

Just one of them being off, can cause the whole thing to come crazing down.......

The master kingpin

too high pll man...try 1.6v max pll. and for 5g maybe 1.7vv
me
I tried a bunch of them
2.1v
2.0 PLL
1.45VTT

Just can't find a good mix to get into windows.

That was me going for 5ghz with the QX9650......

the lowest pll on the x58 is 1.812v.

here....

vcore = vcore
pll = pll
qpi/dram = vtt
dram = dram
ioh = NB
ioh_pcie = pcie lanes on the NB
ich = SB
ich_pcie = pcie lane on the SB

i have heard that qpi/dram to dram voltage is ~1.5x all the time.

so that would mean...

qpi/dram(vtt) 1.35v
ram needs to be 2.15v(???) thats higher than rated spec of the mem.

fugger said he could OC further IF he could find ram that could take up to 2.6v... thats insane for ddr3 thats rated at 1.5-1.65v

idk what to make of this. its really odd.

i feel like its the P5Q3 all over again.

Ohhhh and before you hamster lovers get on my case........they taste damn good with some honey mustard!
