Striker and 8888C4DF problems


Recommended Posts

So I built my new rig recently and ever since I got my Dominators in I have been having a heck of a time getting these thigns to there stock settings. I can't figure out if it is a settings issue, board issue, or RAM issue.


100% Stable settings are as follows, I am using BIOS 1004


everything stock or auto except for all the advanced CPU features are disabled and spread sprectrum disabled. Memory set to 1066MHz 4-4-4-12-2T 2.35v (read 2.38 in pcprobe).


now to the ram up to 1111 MHz I have to overclock a bit. So Ive tried the FSB at 1110,1111,1112. the best results were @ 1112 with CPU voltage set between 1.35-1.4v, 1.2 HT @ 1.35v, NB @ 1.45v, SB @ 1.5v, VTT @ 1.35v. But it wont get into windows and @ 1111 the system wont post.


But if I go up higher on the FSB to kick down the divider I set the FSB to 1250 and it wont post... set it to 1248 and mem to 1109.3 it posts gets into windows and right now I am running dual orthos and typing this at those settings. I think my voltages are as follows


CPU: 1.400v (reads 1.34v)

MEM: 1.375v (reads 2.40v)

1.2 HT: 1.40v (reads 1.44v)

NB: 1.50v (reads 1.52v)

SB: 1.50v (reads 1.50v)

CPU VTT: 1.35v (reads 1.39v)

Vrefs: AUTO


CAS: 4



TRAC: 12

Command rate: 2T

rest auto


sorry this post is all over the place.


Anywho... any ideas? Is my board just picky on the dividers? or am I looking at potentially bad ram or bad mobo? Orthos has just gone 30 minutes withotu error.


EDIT: Orthos went 2 hours before I shut it down to play some games. I guess everything is ok and just picky...


EDIT2: Nope not stable. After 2 hours 9 minutes I got video artifacting. I am now suspecting PSU is at fault. Going to try running the test again with memory at 1066MHz

That may be the CPU its not uncommon to have odd multipliers have anomalies, I think I would give the MB Bios some time to mature a bit more and see what happens. Do you have the latest bios version installed by the way?
