Quest to Derek T re P5K Deluxe Wifi


Recommended Posts

My proposed configuration will be


QX 9650 preferably overclocked at 3.6 ghz

on P5K Deluxe /WIFI-AP with 2 sims for total of 4 gig

1) in a recent post you menntionned the 3 choices below for Ram

in a similar board (see below)

Which of the 3 alternatives would most successfully work stably

and fast in this config. Without pulling my hair out but still exploiting

the full capability of the cpu (cost is secondary to probable success on first attempts)



2) Another question I have I researched the Ultra 120. Some supplier suggest

a lapping procedure (sanding down to make contact surface flatter

Do you recommend this ?


Thank you and forgive my confusion. I am trying to get this right the first time

with completely insufficient knowledge



Your quote


For example:





Run to the standard JEDEC values and will run fine in plug and play.



Run at an extended value and will need to have the 4-4-4-12 with 2.1v manually set.




Will need to have the Speed of 8500 (1066Mhz) manually entered as well as the voltage raised.

Good hardware picks.


QX9650 with 9 X 400 = 3.6Ghz. Now you can choose:




This is the standard 800Mhz DRAM that would be best suited for lower end processor speed. Since you are running with a Quad Core and clocked up to 3.6Ghz, then you would benefit from a faster DRAM speed due to cache requests for data multiplicity, which basically means that the requests will have to be repeated for Core 1 & 2 and Core 3 & 4. Faster DRAM speed will show a lessened stall awaiting data in these cases. So a set of:


Twin2X4096-8500C5 would be beneficial in your situation. It is where I go with the Quad Cores at any rate.


I have not seen the need to lap the Ultra Xtreme 120. When you look at it, you will notice the smoothness and very likely see no need either.
