Could be a possibility of too much leniance. That's wierd though.

Did you happen to try my settings of 270 2.5-3-3-8 3.2v ?

Thats a no go too. At he moment i am doing a thorough stabily test on cpu at 260*10, i've done occt 30 min test and super pi 32M and its passed both and now im currentl doing 24 hour prime 95. Im doing this to check the error is not caused by my cpu as per your advise. Any other tests i can do to ensure stability?

12 hours may be perfect for Prime95. I recommend you use 3D Mark 05 to benchmark. If there's any faults at all, that will usually crash.

when testing ram clocks, you want to remove everything else from the equation.

leave ram divider at 200mhz/ddr400 (1:1)
drop cpu multi to 6 or 7x
drop HT link (LDT) multi to 3x/600mhz

and focus on the ram itself.

This should help you out

This is kind of building on what Eclipse said. Just take it slow and try to figure one thing out at a time, then move onto another issue. The Ballistix is a tricky RAM to get but it's possible to get a lot out of them. Just keep trying and keep posting here so we can help you though it.

I usually run mem-test for about an hour or so. I have heard that 12 to 24 hours is the target time but I am impatient and I hardly ever keep my system OC'd longer than it takes to bench. When I game, I always run stock clocks but when I bench, thats when I pump up the clocks and see what is in the machine.


...................I need another gig of Ballistix!

OKay thanks guys.Ive been having good fun! I would say things are looking up a lil bit. My cpu 100% stable @ 260*10, 3d03 pass, 3d05 pass, prime95 (16 hours) pass, OCCT 30min pass, Siper PI32M pass. Anything else i can do for my own piece of mind? I am working on RAM right now and seems to be holding stable 2.5-3-2-6-8-10 @2.6V ddr 480. So is my target now to run tightish timings @ ddr 520 ? Is that going to be possible? Ive read many places ballistix pc 3200 can only do ddr514 2.5-3-3-7/6. I guess well see.

Edit:My sig is not stable

Edit: Maybe wrong forgot rob got [email protected]

I could have been lucky that time too, I haven't tried to accomplish that again. I am running 2.5-3-3-8 though at DDR540, so I know this memory is capable of a lot.

If I were you, I'd try to just up the voltage, maybe to 3.0 or 3.2 and then turn your divider to 1:1, to *try* for DDR520. I might tri 2.5-3-3-8 as well.. and if it's not stable, I would blame your CPU. The new Venice chips overclock very well apparently.

things loking good ive just passed two passes of memtest, ddr520 2.5-3-3-6 @ 2v6+0v03. Ill let it run for 8-10 hours?? then try for 2.5-3-2-6. Pray my memory stays stable at 2.5-3-3-6 for me. Thanks for all your help, i think what was holding me back (providing it does stay stable) was the fact i kept my Trc and Trcf at 8 and 10. Set it back to auto if not running 2-2-2-5 and seems to be holding up.

Sweet man, that's great. I'd keep MemTest going for a few hours.. no need to go any longer if you are just going to try to OC it more.

Yeah, sometimes the TRC and TRCF can screw you over, I forgot to mention that. There are other misc timings in there that held back my OC before as well, so I just turned everything to Auto except the basics.

2.5-2-2 at DDR500 speeds? That's some nice timings there. Is that chart from one stick, or two?
