    Tight on subtimings I mean :D

    2x1GB Crucial PC2-8500 Ballistix @665.8Mhz 5-6-5-9​


    [​IMG]

    Thought I'd loosen up the memory timings to 5-6-5-9 and see how far I can go at 2.55v vdimm max with my 2x1GB Crucial PC2-8500 Ballistix dual channel kit in black dimm slots. Swapped in 92x38mm Delta 120cfm fan to cool the memory via a rheobus fan controller :)

    System
    • Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 ES - L710A438 G0
    • Corsair Nautilus 500 3/8" ID
    • Asus P5K Deluxe 0311 bios
    • 128MB Gainward FX5200 PCI
    • 2x1GB Crucial PC2-8500 Ballistix dual channel kit in black dimm slots cooled by 92x38mm Delta 120cfm fan
    • 74GB WD Raptor 8MB on SATA 2 port
    • Pioneer DVR-08 Burner
    • Sony FDD
    • 1KW PCP&C SLI psu
    • WinXP Pro SP2

    Here's where I ended up @665.8Mhz 5-6-5-9 6-35-8-6-8 at 2.55v which is the highest memory frequency I've done to complete Super Pi 32M on any motherboard. Previous best was @650mhz 5-5-5-18 on Asus 680i Striker Extreme with 2x1GB OCZ PC2-9200 FlexXLC at 2.550v.

    I am waiting on my two 2GB PC2-8500 Tracer kits... the online tracking is getting closer :)

    Might be here Friday. Looking at this, I will be able to give the 'ol DS3P a bit of a workout.....

    Currently got the Corsair XMS6400C4 sticks in there with the E6600.....

    E6600 Core Stepping B2
    Core Speed 3240.1 MHz (9.0 x 360.0 MHz)

    2x CM2X1024-6400C4 @ 360Mhz 1:1 4-4-4-12 2T, 2.1V

    All very mild so far. TR Ultra120-Extreme on cooling duties....

    PGN actually omitted certain vital parts of my address so I had to pick up my RAM from FedEx office, which luckily is no inconveniance.

    I have 4GB of Ballistix PC2-8000 waiting at home :)

    (including a 4GB Lexar SSD stick which I mistakenly thought was a USB card lol) Who wants it? :D

    Price is back up to US$143.37 or something now.

    Glad you got even cheaper. Probably a couple of days later with a better exchange rate.

    If you did two kits now with the price rise, would be about $191/kit

    Not really, maybe you have never been on a passenger jet before?
    They just put them in a big white or silver plane (767-ER Freighter or 777 usually) with FedEx on the tail, point it towards Sydney and hit the throttles :lol:

    The cool thing is watching their progress. mine: here

    They have landed now, are at Alexandria waiting for customs..... hurry up you public servants!

    Eva , what is the advantage of an E6750 over say an E6420 apart from native 1333 fsb ? Or is that it ? Nice clocks anyway.

    Too good to resist when they are guaranteed Micron chips. Best thing so far about DDR3 is cheap, high quality DDR2 :thumbup:

    eva are those capable of 600mhz c4?

    ive been playing with my cellshock c4 pc8000 kit on the p5k deluxe, black dimm slots, and last night i reached 601mhz @ 4-4-4-8 and fairly tight subtimings @ 2.55v

    these cellshocks are much better at tight timings than high mhz, im wondering how they compare to your crucial?

    This has been discussed pretty heavily in the Intel forum, but basically you will be looking at about $350 for a Q6600 after July 22nd.

    You want to make sure you get the newer stepping that is coming, which is alot cooler.

    For my folding farm, two Q6600 boxes with 4GB of Crucial (4x1GB) with medium OC's on P5K mobos and TR-U120E for teh win!

    Yeah, I am loving it right now.

    Slowest machine I have in the house now is a Dual Xeon 2.8Ghz....Unfortunately no overclocking as it is a HP DL380G3....

    Otherwise, my slowest PC is a D945 at 4.0Ghz (235x17) on stock cooling, stock volts, one FSB voltage bump. Folds under load at 60 degrees. I have a Tuniq and a P5WD2 board plus 2Gb of Corsair 6400C4 to put it into and see what we can get....

    E6420 arrives Monday most likely.

    The RAM was held up in Customs last night and missed the local courier. It had better be here tomorrow.

    That is a signature quote that one.....
