    Normally I start off on phase change testing quickly followed my ln2 :D
    But this time i will spend more time on the stock air sink before moving to ln2 :thumbup:

    SPi 1m testing, stock heatsink with different levels of vcore

    thanxs mate, for extreme overclocking that little extra features in a board make make a massive difference. The UD4P is a nice board but is missing a few features like power button, reset/cmos and the debug display that makes overclocking easier.


    thanxs mate, yeah the board is cruising along, ram settings are quiet tight.
    Lets hope the cpu can deliver the blcks i need with ln2 :leet:


    3dmark 05 testing, not overclocking the GPU card with 3dmark tests, will wait till using ln2 on the 5870 to get real points.
    For now just testing QPI, ram timings etc.

    Wprime 1024mb, I didn’t do much testing as temps were really hot with such low volts.
    More testing to be done with better cooling

    did a little SPI tweaking, tighter ram timmings and higher QPI multi, managed to knock 40seconds off my last 32m spi score similar mhz.
