Ram Settings on Lanparty Ultra B??


tame1

Recommended Posts

:bigeyes: Just purchased a Lanparty NF2 ultra B with a 3200+, its the first mobo iv'e had that lets me play with ram settings. i have 2 sticks of CMX512-3200C2 which can be set to 2.5-3-3-6. i'm not quite sure where to put what number lol (newb to the memory scene)... in the bios i have T-ras, T-rcd read, T-rcd write, T-rp and cas. i assume the 2.5 is the cas, but have 4 choices left for the other three numbers...can someone gimmie a hand on this? just what to put where would be cool.... Thanks

The RAM you have purchased is rated to run (in the order you have given) at 2,3,3,6 timings. They probably won't run well below that specification. I'd try lowering the first number to 2 from 2.5 . 2,3,3,6 is good settings for performance and should be the most stable settings with your RAM. Good luck, Mike.

Tame1, DO post your results on this board. I have been testing one the last couple of nights, and it and DFI's tech support are POS. Let me say that same CPUs that do 300 and 305 fsb on Abit boards will not run 3D stable above 285 fsb. I queried DFI tech support on how come they keep changing the PCB of the boards and my poor results and got a terse reply that o/cing is not guaranteed so TS: tough sh_t. I had to e-mail then three times to get any response from them. With my XMS3500, I could not get the LanParty 875B to run 5:4 >270 fsb or so, only 3:2. Wouldn't even run at 1:1! Same deal with a DFI 875P Infinity board (got same lousy overclocks also). Same sticks run fine on Asus, Abit, and Epox boards. I did install the latest BIOS for the LanParty, but DFI has pretty much left 875P Infinity users out in the cold as there has been no BIOS updates since 7-03! Their boards have hot restart and cold boot issues >290 fsb unless you use the latest 2004 BIOS. I even tried using off 66/33 fix to get the board to run 3D stable above 284 fsb and no dice. 3DMark2001 always kicks out. I tell ya, I am not a happy camper with DFI at this point.

just to agree with clevor...but DFI'S tech support told me to update the bios and set the timings to certain values...and i did...and no improvements...so they flat out told me to get a new mobo and or proc and or memory....i paid good money for what i have...ALOT of good money...so i want what i have to work...not get something new

Since this thread has been dug up, might as well post an update: First of all, DFI tech support has improved 200%, possibly due to my gripes both here and on Asusboards. I had to contact them about BIOSs for the 865P LanParty board, and I got prompt responses to several e-mails, sometimes the same day. My main complaint was how they deserted buyers of older PCB or Rev. boards, in regards to BIOS updates. Well now they have BIOS updates for pretty much every board. I guess yelling and bitchin helps sometimes. In regards to the 875P LanParty, even guys on Extreme have complained about the inability to run 5:4. I recently reran the board and had the same issues with newer ram like Ballistix and TCCD. I don't think they can fix it. The board is strictly 1:1; even 3:2 won't run sometimes. As for the 865P LanParty board, it rocks! I got this board on liquidation for $99 over a year ago and only tested it recently. It overclocks as well as any, and unlike the 875P board, runs 5:4 very well. In fact, I ran 300, 5:4 with TCCD and Ballistix ram on a 2.40C, 3D stable. The board has a memory tweak I used to get 5:4 stable, with minimal loss on performance. The board outperforms the AI7 at 300, 5:4 in 3DMark. I contacted DFI marketing to see if they had any more boards, but got a prompt response in the negative. However if you can find the 865P Infinity board, that is the same board with no bells-and-whistles. I picked up a used board here in Japan two months ago, so I keep two. The only problem with the board is severe undervolting with the VCORE. I have to set 1.95 in the BIOS to get 1.71 actual, but I doubt I will ever need more. I tried the latest BIOS, which supports EO step Prescotts, and no help. But at 5:4, the board performs opposite of the 875P Lanparty, and it's one of the best 3D benching boards I have ever seen. In three nights flogging three different sets of ram up to 300, 5:4, I did not experience a single kickout or lockup running all three Marks and Aquamark! Just amazing.

Clevor, I really appreciate the type of information you dig up. You really dig deep in some areas that help many people that are at a dead end. Keep up the good work. If you ever have a minute, visit us at a new site some friends and I are trying to really get off the ground. Your input is always welcome. [url]www.houseofmobos.com[/url] Mike.

Actually HoM's moving servers ATM. Won't be up for a day or 2. Waiting on host to change domain names for the webspace. Mike's right though, always looking for quality posters there. Site's going through changes as well, so staff positions are popping up randomly. Manufacturer or product specialists are high up on the list ATM. Before any additions are made though, we gotta get the front page up, which is waiting for the site to back up and running! :)

And I recognize Gorganzola. What I like about Asusboards is your sig updates on all previous posts; with OCForums, it only updates on subsequent posts. Oh well.
