Well its been an interesting time playing with these settings.
First the cpu.
Original start point.
HT link 2280
CPU NB 2736
Adjusting CPU NB to 2964 automatically takes me to 3 cores?
Didn't try forcing 4th core, just rolled it back to 2736 then forced 4th core.
These cores have passed intels burn harshes test.
Adjusting HT LINK past 2280 causes boot issues.
2508 booted then crashed 2 minutes later.
Rolled back to 2280.
Adjusting multiplier to 16.5 crashes pc.
Seems happy with X16.
ALL above changes did not effect buss speed???
Buss speed is highlighted but nothings happens in bios when enter is pressed?
Current core speed is now 3648.
Played with DRAM.
Original. 7 7 7 16 @ 608 FSB 3:8 <--- auto 1216
Raised it to 1520 auto----> 9 9 9 20 33 @ 760
Then forced the top 3 to 8s NOVA score 1119
Then went to max option, 1824 that gave 11 11 11 24 40 @ 912 FSB 1:4
Nova scored the same, 3D crashed.
Rolled back to original and went to manual timings.
6 6 6 15 5 20 8 4 The numbers past the 6s are guesses. Just trying to follow what seemed like a pattern from auto settings.
All these changes didn't make a major differance in bench scores.
Not sure how to force the buss speed for the cpu.
PC seems nice and responsive.
Temps are 34 C.
Though I did switch fans to high as I think about. Will lower to middle postition and recheck.
Still haven't touched voltages.
Forgot to mention that I lowered my video card RAM HZ to 1385.
Some 3D test strted crashing.
Original 3D score before any other OCing.
After OCing video card and todays OCing,
