The best setting are lowest timings and the highest FSB. but there is a preferance at high FSB - low timings..


I should get that FX-55 clocked high, and when the 55 doesn't want to get any further tortured, get the multiplier down...


When the RAM quits clocking higher, set your timings more loose.

hmmm...bit extreme for me i think!!...i will just set cpu as standard for now...just t get over shock of cost heh heh.

at present with athlon 64/3000 i would get 'hangs' every now and then so i had to find best timings for it all to run ok.now i will just set spd as standard too...see how it all pans out.

thnx for ya reply :O)

hi all....

o/c will be an option later of course...but right now i am having probs just running 1 sata drive and normal settings!

does any1 out there have a gigabyte GA-K8NSNXP-939 mobo and FX55 cpu combo?which timings do i change in bios...more than 4 options for timings!

which ones refer to ?/?/?/? (ssandra reports mine as 3.0/4/3/3cl/2cmd )

i just dont get it,i have looked at the bios timings for my ram,swapped slots etc (rows 1&2 - 3&4)...but i am still getting freeze-ups running benchmarks.

glexcess locks up = reboot

3dmark2001se/03/05 lock up = reboot

i am using latest drivers for graphics/sound & sp2

i see most users go for asus mobo...should i change??

i had similar probs with my old 64/3000 cpu n k8nnxp mobo....only common part is my twinx ram...hmmm!

pls people...i just want this system running good so i can bench it and then add all my other drives back in.
