hlygrail Posted January 20, 2007 Share Posted January 20, 2007 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 an Abit AN8 I built for my dad when he had beaucoups problems w/ the value series Corsair 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 or reliable settings would be appreciated. I'm not looking to mad overclock this box, just get some reasonable MB/s counts. Maybe 2450MB/s is good enough, but it's nowhere near as good as the PC4400 memory in my Athlon64 3200+ box (DFI NF4 Ultra-D). Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
