Temps are no higher than 42C now no matter what voltage or setting I'm using - at least for those that I've been able to boot to windows in.ashmedai said:Ooooh yeah. Marketing lingo sticks in my head as little as I can manage. I was trying to figure out WTF processor went in a Socket ZIF.
Well you're in the neighborhood, now just for the stability tweaking. Run over RGone's guide again if you haven't, also LDT 1.5V helped me a bit with the higher HT clocks. Chipset...dunno, mine's usually around 40C when I look. Don't think what memory you have matters that much as long as it's half decent and you set the ratio appropriately.
I have left LDT at 1.4 as I had read somewhere it was an optimal setting with issues at 1.5 - I will give it a whirl tomorrow at 1.5 and see if I have any luck.
After posting this morning I cranked my HTT up to 300 and then was playing with voltages, ram divider ratio's, ram timings, etc to see how far I could get. I found a couple of combinations that allowed me to try to boot to windows (it always posts) and the rest would no even get as far as "Backing up CMOS". The ram seems really finicky as sometimes a value 1 higher and/or 1 lower in ram timings would allow it to get further and error out on loading windows (unable to find/load pci.sys, ntoskernel, etc).
I was hoping to re-stumble across the combination that allowed me to get into windows at 300 HTT - and then fine tune for stability - but no luck so far.
I even got brave and (very shortly - a few minute at a time at most) tried DRAM voltages as high as 3.4-3.5 - but saw absolutely no difference from having it at 2.90. At least with the settings I was using at a time.
So today I'll do some more reading, and tomorrow morning I'll try again
edit - for that matter, I think I'll take some pictures of the bios screens with my 300 HTT settings and have people critique them - perhaps there's something terribly obvious that I'm missing
edit 2 - and yes, HTT multi at 3 and ram divider at either 133 or 100. Have tried both.
