    LOL another Biostar thread LOL
    but what can you say when this board is that good
    no mods on my board and FSB limit of 611MHz for 32M SuperPi runs on CAS4 but i did do some superpi tests at 5.8GHz-5.9GHz tonight

    i didn't want to kill anything so i stopped the session as condensation was really starting to get a bit much for me.....i will give me my best to make it stable at 5.9GHz for some 8M and 32M runs...i know i can do it damn it lol

    Test Configuration:
    Biostar TPower P45 board
    ***1.88vcore, 2.68vdimm, 1.69vMCH, 1.47vFSB***
    Intel Core2 Duo E8500 Q740A497
    2GB DDR2 PC10000 Corsair DOMINATORS (645MHz 1:1 4-4-4-8 timings)
    PCI GFX Card MX200
    620W Corsair PSU
    Stock heatsink on NB (LN2 cooled with small pours)
    kingpin F1 Extreme Edition Solid copper CPU LN2 Pot
    Big mamma 35L LN2 Dewar
    160GB PATA
    Windows XP Pro 32bit SP3



    I was FSB limited here.........and condensation kicked in when i figured out how to run 1.92vcore and -140C lol

    this CPU is a monster.......i need a board that can give me stable 631MHz FSB so that i can bench it at 6GHz rofl :D

    [​IMG]

    here is my settings template i usually use and then adapt it to whatever cooling i am using....so it would be slightly different for the above run if you know what i mean

    Code:
    SETTINGS
    
    M/B : BIOSTAR TP I45 (BIOS:626)
    CPU : Core2 Duo E8500(Q740A497) best CPU i've EVER had :D [EDIT]...errrr maybe my Opteron 146 with 11x multi still takes the cake
    CPU cooling : TTBig Typhoon
    Chipset Cooling : stock with extra fan
    Mem : 2GB Kit of Crucial Ballistix 
    2GB DDR2 PC10000 Corsair Dominator "dead" kit for CAS4 << still works eeek even it tons of errors in memtest heheh
    VGA : PCI GFX Card
    HDD : Samsung 160gb ide
    OS : Windows XP SP3
    USB wireless mouse and PS2 keyboard
    
    [BIOS SETUP] O.N.E
    Over-Clocking Navigator [Manual OverClock]
    Intel(R) SpeedStep(tm) : Disabled
    Ratio CMOS Setting : ×6 (change higher for benching subzero obviously)
    CPU Frequency Setting : 570(boot)
    Over Clock Retry Count : 2
    FSB Compensation: Enabled
    FSB(Bsel) To NorthBridge Latch : 1333
    DRAM Frequency : DDR2-1140
    DDR2 Enhance Mode : Disabled
    
    DRAM Timing Configuration
    DDR2 RCOMP Configuration : 2
    Static tREAD Value : AUTO
    Configure DRAM Timing by SPD : Enabled 
    [EDIT] this will give you CAS5 clocks and PL10 past 600MHz FSB
    for PL9 past 600MHz FSB you need to manually set CAS4 timings
    
    Clock Gen Configuration
    PCIE Frequency Setting : 100
    CPU Clock Skew Control : 200ps
    (G)MCH Clock Skew Control : 100ps
    CPU Clock Driving Control : Auto
    
    Voltage Configuration
    CPU Voltage : [I]SET WHAT IS REQUIRED FOR STABILITY AT MHZ YOU ARE BENCHING ON[/I]
    DDR Voltage : +0.600v (use more depending on RAM)
    Chipset Voltage : +0.600v
    FSB Voltage : +0.40v
    CPU Core1 GTL Ref Voltage : 0.63*VTT
    CPU Core2 GTL Ref Voltage : 0.67*VTT
    MCH GTL Ref Voltage : Auto
    CPU PLL Voltage : 1.5v
    
    i also disabled Multicore Computing under CPU section for max Superpi with single core otherwise enabled for 3D benching

    Bloody awesome Dinos... i could feel it that you had something cooking this weekend :D

    these E8500 Q740A479 seem to be pretty strong too :)

    Very nice work indeed. :thumbup: Are you running a modded BIOS? Perhaps drawing less power from the mobo would increase stability and achieve even higher results? You having a 2nd run at it sometime soon? More hwbot points for you!

    Mate i want 1 of these boards.
    LOL (645MHz 1:1 4-4-4-8 timings) is bloody gruesome

    I want biostar to sell in au.
    they really hit the fan with this P45 mobo combo.
    what results will be had when this mobo manufacture puts together a combo for Bloomsfield?:cool:

    6.1ghz? that is crazy! very impressive.

    can you also quickly try a 1m superpi and see what kind of results you can get on this 6.1ghz monster processor?

    btw: this post is written on a 2.4 gig machine which I guess is at least 50% slower than yours.

    :lol:

    thanks very much for your comments guys

    btw youngpro and me are team mates.......team mates don't compete against each other but for the team :thumbup:

    i will try again for W.R. frequency on this CPU soo

    single channel
    looser timings and PL and higher vcore

    i want to try and hit 6.3GHz :leet:

    Wow 6.1 on a E8500

    I'm hoping the E8600 will do 5 on air when it is released soon

    Dino's that is wild mate, top job!:thumbup::D

    Is this the same CPU a little while ago that you where just short of 6K MHz on a different board?

    I think that one died Andy. It had nothing to do with overclocking... *ahem*


    Wicked results Dino; do me a favour though and don't kill my board :p I still need to have a crack at it :D


    Also, as mentioned, Team.AU don't compete with one another. Well, we do but only for a laugh, but when push comes to shove we're open to discuss techniques, tweaks etc. You get nowhere by hiding info, especially from your own team mates.

    we share it all with the public pretty much
    nothing's off limits :thumbup:

    josh i'm trying to kill your board but i'm having a hard time i must say :D hahahah

    i will have one final LN2 session for some fast SuperPi action and if the board is still OK i will also give it a shot for extra frequency with single stick etc etc

    :thumbup:

    btw no more LN2 on NB >> does nothing for me heheheh :D except cause trouble heheh

    Hahaha, classy there mate.

    I might need to get you to send the board up to me on the coast as I'm not often in Sydney anymore due to my new gig - I'll probably call later to chat about this anyway. I need to chat to you also about a certain kit of memory and also need to get my golden DDR3-1800 C7 kit :p

    So stoked to see both you and James cook up some 6GHz action. I'm just annoyed my Q740A ES chip is such a dog. I've been batch hunting in the past week and still can't find anything worth while. My mate who owns a PC shop up here is even keeping an eye out for me hahah. Fingers crossed for some luck soon.


    Good luck killing stuff :Paranoid: :wired:

    Weeeeeeeeeeeeeee... new chip fun-fun :leet:

    Now I need to russle up the funds to finish the new cascade build and also buy a dewar. Bloody hell this stuff is addictive and expensive to boot, I'd almost be better off just smoking crack :lol:

    here is another update

    32M SuperPi at 5826MHz....had a couple of runs stop at 584x and 585x so i gave up

    also my hard drive must be screwed up as i am not happy with my efficiency but results are not too bad i guess

    [​IMG]


    also here is a 6GHz 1M :)
    absolutely hideous PP hehehehe

    [​IMG]

    i am FSB limited by this board
    this CPU has a lot more to give
    with the right board...i would be expecting at least 5.9GHz 2D/3D
    Josh is going to have a lot of fun with this CPU
    it handles -150C plus no problems lol

    :leet:
