That's why performance RAM like OCZ has heat spreaders.
For the cpu???

seems like i keep having crashes ive always had the hl2.exe crashing but never during game. this is weird and it also happens in modern warfare 2, i think im about to down clock.

just ran the windows mem test and it said there is a problem.

is there anyway i can find out what or how thats all it tells me im about to put the speeds to stock and see if it does it.


UPDATE: put everything back to normal, and i re ran the test and this time it didnt find any errors, i wonder what am i doing wrong??? maybe i cant keep it at 1600 mhz...

UPDATE 2: put it back at 1600mhz but without the voltage this time and still says i have a ram problem on that. seems that i need to keep everything at stock for everything to be ok.

Hey, sorry been putting some new shock absorbers in my old ladys 300zx (PITA).

NO! LOL the DRAM BUS VOLTAGE should be at 1.65.
i just done some quick research and thats the one i found you should be adjusting for the ram. leave the rest on AUTO unless you want to overclock.

thats why your temps rose, as i think that QPI/DRAM setting has something to do with the cpu, if just overclocking ram, the cpu should NEVER suffer temp increases as they are not a part of each other.

that the only downside to the i7, you have to learn all its new terminology, like going from intel to an AMD. now the i7 has so many volt settings, its confusing.

also are your ram timings set to auto or did you set them manually?
if you set them manually, put them on auto after fixing that ram volt setting, then re-test the memory to see if its ok.

there will be a way to get it @ 1600mhz! otherwise i will be disappoint in myself! lol

oh and also, disable Speed Step (unless you want the cpu throttling its multiplier down automatically when at idle), i hate speed step, if i could disable it on my laptop i would.

let me know how those settings work out.

ok well i did it that way, but i set the voltage at 1.64 because when i would put it at 1.65 it would auto go to a 1.66 and kept telling me its not recommended, i ran the ram test and found no problems so im wondering if i should leave it at 1.64. do you think 1.64 is ok? now i just need to run some games and see if they crash like they did, and cpu temps are back to normal

UPDATE on game: just played tf2 for a bit if it was going to crash it would have already, considering when i had it the other way around 10 mins in it would of crashed with the hl2.exe not responding thing. although i did have a little stutter when i came in which scared the hell out of me, cause then i thought it brought back my old problem O_O but then i kept playing and everything seem to be ok. seemed to be that my computer wasnt all the way warmed up yet.


Also on the speed step you think its no good??? i mean it ocs it self when using 1 or 2 cores to get more juice out of it... if it hurts me more then it benefits me ill disable it.

yeh 1.64v will be fine. the i7's for some reason have an issue with the ram voltage being too high. i dont know why this would affect the cpu though. or it could have something to do with the actual DRAM bus that gets affected by the voltage. but they do recommend not to go too high over 1.65v

its good to see that we had success! lol FTW!

speed step shouldn't hurt anything, its just it will make your cpu speed fluctuate when it gets to a certain percentage, for example, at 80% idle (20% cpu in use) it will reduce your multiplier and cpu vcore to 'save power', then once the cpu starts getting used more it will return it to full power. its more a personal preference matter, the way i see it, is if your computer has high end components, why bother trying to make it more power efficient? like a supercharged v8 and expecting to get good fuel economy?lol. with laptops, windows 7 allows you to set the minimum cpu usage, so i set it to 80% and it keeps the cpu at full speed so there is no lag between going from idle to opening a program.
and because you have the i7's turbo enabled, when at a certain cpu usage, again it will in fact increase your multiplier by x1 to give it a boost.

to me these advanced features are great for laptops (that want the battery life) and economic PC's like home theatre pc's (even though i overclock mine)

so with all that said, has your WEI increased? what about the memory assessment speed? (if your WEI did increase, dont forget to show it off on the WEI thread!)

ok thank you ooo so much!!! lol may not be the right place to ask this, but i have my pci e Video card int he 2nd pci - e slot of my mobo, im wondering if thats effecting any performance as well.

o damn and yes went from a 7.4 to a 7.9

You do have a 1x PCIe slot according to this. Make sure the video card is not using that slot. (I don't think the card can go in there anyway, but not sure since I don't own PCIe stuff.)

no probs. and thats a nice increase too!
it should be in the closest PIC-E x16 slot CLOSEST to the CPU, i dont know if it would affect performance, but for compatibility sake, thats how it should be done.

and no, it is physically impossible to fit a PCI-E x16 card in a PCI-E x1 slot, unless you destroy and modify the actual bus connector
