ASUS M2NPV-VM + Sempron 3600 + TWIN2X1024-6400C4 settings


Recommended Posts

Just putting this rig online and wondering if anyone else has already spec'd out good memory + CPU settings. Auto seems (as usual) conservative. I'm not looking for anything specific, just wondering what others have found since I don't have a lot of time to dink around with it.


Current configuration (ignore any previous sig -- I probably inquired about my DFI NF4 Ultra-D long ago, which has been running swimmingly for many months on Corsair TwinX memory!):


ASUS M2NPV-VM motherboard (onboard video)

AMD Sempron 3600+ Socket AM2

1 pair TWIN2X1024-6400C4 (2x512MB)

Seasonic S12-500, 500W (overkill, and a real beauty, though this rev. seems to have dropped the PWM fan cable -- ack!)

(nothing else installed yet -- DVD and HDD don't show up for another day)



At auto (5-5-5-18), it picks up about 2450MB/s in memtest (bleh.. we can do better). At memory ratings 4-4-4-12, memtest86+ still sees 5-5-5-14, so no appreciable difference. Do I need to change the multiplier on the CPU and push it up above 200 to push this memory up? (FYI, 1T is enabled, and is being recognized... 2450MB/s for DDR2 in dual-channel? Bleh.)



Current memory settings -- either result in same settings of 5-5-5-18 (!) in memtest.


Memory clock - Auto or 800Mhz manually set

Tcl - Auto (or 4 manually set)

Trcd - Auto (or 4 manually set)

Trp - Auto (or 4 manually set)

Tras - Auto (or 12 manually set)

Trc - Auto (unchanged)

Twrt - Auto (unchanged)

Memory Timing: 1T (manually set)


CPU is auto (200 MHz), auto multiplier

DDR2 voltage is 1.9v (highest this board will go, for whatever reason)



Any suggestions on moderate bump would be appreciated.

If you post this in the Enthusiasts section you will get help in your overclock. This keeps Corsair rather out of the overclocking issue and the possible errors that can (seldomly, but it does happen) occur.


I personally will not give overclocking advice in this section as this section is more for compatibility problems.
