More Tweaks Please

Hi Guys,

I have just finished overclocking and stability tests on my cpu and memory and have the following running 100% stable:

Phenon II 955 BE at 19 x 200 (3.8ghz) at 1.5v

OCZ Platinum AMD Edition 4GB (2x2G DDR3 @ 1333mhz at 6-6-6-24 @ 1t

My memory is rated to run at 1600mhz but I can not get it stable anywhere near that so have left it 1333mhz with slightly tighter timings (think this is a mobo issue).

I was wondering if there are any other settings I can tweak to improve performance?, all other settings are currently at stock apart from the ones mentioned above.

Any suggestions would be greatly received

Memory Voltage

Memory is running at stock at the sec (1.4v I think), I didnt adjust as it is running stable at 1333mhz.

I did try increasin the ram voltage to upto 1.6v to try and get the machine to boot at 1600mhz but still no joy!

Many thanks

2t on the ram may yield the higher clock there.

Other than that 3.8 is a good clock, just make sure its 100% stable.

Stable

I have run prime95 on the machine on all four cores for 24hrs, so as far as I know if it managed that with no problems I think it should be pretty much stable.

Not sure if there are any other settings ie northbridge that I can adjust that would give me a performance boost.

I have kinda given up on tweaking my memory more and I am just hoping that gigabyte will release a bios update which may allow me to get to 1600mhz at some time. I did try it at 2t when i was trying to get to 1600mhz with looser timings (8-8-8-24 @2t @ 1.6v), but no joy.

Any help is appreciated
