You should give me a link to that background, it looks pretty sweet.

PI likes faster RAM and timings, but it's not a deciding factor.

Website I got it from has a 404 Was a great site too. Didn't even realize it was from pink floyd until now, still love the image though.




Hate to ask the nooby questions again but which of the numbers under the timings do you change? First four or are they separate?

Yes, the first four are the major one's you'd want to concentrate on.

I just ran superpi with some of my tweaks.

Haven't lapped my EK supreme yet though, and this wasn't in the air conditioned room.

My MA790X-UD4P motherboard is definitely stronger for overclocking than my K9A2 Platinum was.

Though I still don't think I'm getting the temps I should be (it's in the 30's idle). Maybe I'll be able to get >4.2GHZ.

They can handle a lot more volts than that (world records with LN2 are done with 1.9-2.0V). The only issue with the CPU itself is increasing volts increases temperature.
And not all motherboards can handle higher power loads.

For 1M runs, most CPU's will be utilising cache almost exclusively instead of RAM (Phenom II's have 512KB L2 cache per core and 6MB L3 cache).

Cool'n'quiet is made to throttle the core speed down.
