Nah I haven't run memtest yet. The memory is being tried within the company specs though.
They guarantee it up to DDR266 at 3-4-4-8 timings 2.85-2.95 Vdimm
At 250 they say 2.5-3-3-7 timings ( thats where I got it) with 2.75-2.85 vdimm, I got it at 2.8
I just upped my Vcore to 1.9v even, thingis up at 44C full load now from like 40C with 1.875! Big jump in heat with a small voltage boost, also knocked the chipset DOWN to 1.6 to see if for some weird reason it'd work.
Low and behold it's now at Test 3 in blend mode, which is what like ....15 minutes I think, so we'll see how it goes. Hell I may need to prime the CPU again so I can find out the required Vcore, although I coulda sworn 2.5GHz was 100% stable at 1.875Mhz, but hell since it's OC'ing the RAM now it may need that little bit more juice.
Man I hate hitting 44C.
I hope that water cooling has a nice effect, I HOPE I HOPE I HOPE!
Can't even tell you how disappointed I'd be if it failed me, but I don't see how it could.
That'd be going against all the reviews I've read plus I will have a 2nd radiator, which I gotta say DAMN, the thing is freakin huge man lol.
Grrrr mike! I'm so jealous of your 250MHz
but yeah, like you and I have both said I'm almost positive it's the 512mb vs 1gb
I need to do that voltage mod.
4W4K3!!! Come volt mod this thing for me
EDIT: Oh yeah and I asked that guy CPU Killer from dfi-street for some top knotch liquid cooling info. Said I was a mod here and most people will come to me for OC'ing help, but no one has liquid cooling here (that I know of) so I wanted to become knowledgable in that too, to reinsure people like myself who are new and want to get into it
