D975XBX Badaxe - 1441 bios = working 2:3 divider

Post by eva2000 » Tue Nov 07, 2006 1:42 am

I updated to 1441 bios i lost some max 1:1 and 4:5 oc'ing stability versus 1334/1304 bios but i gained alot on 2:3 divider.. before 1441 bios, 2:3 only booted up at 266fsb stock, even 1% higher fsb at 2:3 resulted in no boot on 1067fsb strap.

But now with 1441 bios i'm booting up and memtesting on 1067fsb strap so far at 320fsb 2:3 480mhz memory clocks... that's a huge improvement over 266fsb stock 2:3 only bootable :)

I updated to 1441 so to be safe i can drop in kentsfield cpu without issues :)

Final result single 32M @528mhz 4-4-4-8 at 2.36v vdimm with 2:3 divider :)

Before, on 1334 bios best mem clock for this set of memory on D975XBX was 519mhz 4-4-4-12 at 2.36v vdimm on 4:5 divider. On P5W DH same set of memory did 533mhz 4-4-4-8 at 2.4v vdimm

To compare same E6700 on P5W DH 2:3 divider but with 525mhz 4-4-3-8 at 2.52v vdimm

Ran timings a bit tighter @528mhz 4-4-4-4 at 2.39v vdimm
