Yeah, well those people that say 'CRAP RAM! OMG 2.5CL' you just gotta brush off because you know one sandra bench would shut them up.
I'm benching 240x10.5 1:1 of course, 1.7v chipset, 2.8v dimm, 2.5-3-3-7 timings
I really don't think it'll go tighter than that, meaning 2.5-3-2-7 or 2.5-2-3-7 just won't work, especially because I just want to make sure 240 is perfectly stable so I have somewhere to start off at that I KNOW is stable, so when I do that voltage mod I can start at 240 and resume climbing.
lol I'll have to get you a screen shot of my fan speeds 4W4K3, I saw a fan hitting 8600 RPM and I was like 'what the hell is that?' forgot about that NB cooler, of course I can't hear it over my other fans, but that things insane.
My thermal probe fell off the bottom of the heatsink, though so I think I'm going to tape it to the bottom edge of the NB heatsink to get decent approximate temps.
Even with this board it records the same -48C, 48C, and 127C trying to find the NB temp diode
I'm using this BIOS BTW:
D25 CPC-ON ver. 3.0.00 Fire Bpl 3.19 26.08.04
Although I can't remember if I tried CPC-ON or OFF lol
Your 233 has to beat out my 240 though cause you have it at 2.5-2-2-5 and those middle 2's really increase bandwidth...
Do you suppose it's the RAM that's limiting you from going above 233 though? That's the only thing I can think of since I'm getting 240 with NB voltage only at 1.7
I don't know if I'm quite daring enough to try those really tight timings you got though.
