    Tony at OCZ did a good write-up about tuning DDR3 at 1600+

    Nobody's talking about the new 1554 BIOS. So, what's it like? Is it worth the update? Can anyone oc any higher with this one? At least it is possible to go as far as 720MHz for the PSB I believe, right? Well, that's way behond normal proc capabilities.
    Anyone tried also IDCC v4.1.0.168?

    the 1554 BIOS is like sunshine in a bottle. everyone with a Bone Trail should have it installed. i haven't tried the new IDCC yet though. my previous experiences with it were so bad that i'm waiting for the green light from you guys before i install it again

    I was waiting for comments before jumping in.
    Any changes in the mem voltage granularity? I believe a 0.1V was already in order.
    Also, the PCIe freq with a 1V increase/decrease would make sense.
    Hardware monitor is also a little on the poor side, but there are also limitations to the monitoring chip, the datasheet shows this.
    I guess tRD or performance Level (as Asus calls it) are still not there.

    I have 1554 on both the BT and BT2 with no new issues. Stable before, stable now.
    Can't stand IDCC so I can't comment on it (except for the "can't stand" part).

    C1E and Watchdog on the regular BIOS menus is reason enough, I think.

    Also, given that new things ARE showing up, someone must be listening.
    Submit a ticket for tRD. I did.

    Did you email them directly to the support email?
    I'm not sure they even read it through, their first answer is "Intel does not support overclocking", although thay state otherwise in their page.
    Support and marketing guys there must hate each other...

    Yep, Just say "BIOS Feature Request, add tRD memory control".
    Tier 1 is still clueless but BIOS seems to be a keyword to get it the correct group.

    My proccessor will still not overclock (at any voltage) anywhere beyond 3.4ghz with any bios newer than 1478 even at stock fsb speeds.. I have spent countless hours trying to figure it out.

    Quick little price update:

    DX38BT + Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 = $149.99

    Just bit, and purchased myself a board. Hopefully it will be as enjoyable as my XBX2 with the latest bios!

    Yeah Tony, great job indeed!
    Can you hint on some of the new stuff coming up?
    New audio drivers came up on Intel site, can't see any changes really on the readme file, there's even a mistake with the driver version in this file. It seems it must be for Vista SP1 only, since they say you need to uninstall and re-install after SP1, minor update I guess.

    in regards to the x48 motherboard which is mine now for a couple of days. i've
    wondered if i should be concerned with cooling the power regulators (mosfets)?? when using a tower cpu cooler such as the thermalright ultra 120? also, another question, in the intel spec sheet they indicate thermal sensors on the cpu, nb and sb dies, i assume readable somehow or as something other than what i've assumed in other boards, ie.,xbx2. what i'm getting at is within everest with the typical cpu,gpu,hdd and such there is also a motherboard temp and an auxillary temp indicated. now, i love the program know as everest but i not taking thier word as what a sensor should be called. could it be, for my own curiousity, that cpu, mainboard and auxillary
    be temps for the cpu, nb and sb. anyone want to enlighten me?

    I wouldn't worry about the mosfets. They run pretty cool.
    The 3 temps are...
    CPU (the diode)
    Motherboard (the aSC7621 monitoring chip itself which is between the cpu socket and the first dimm socket)
    DIMM (the sensor is in the space between the second and third dimm slots)

    ok, thank you gtj, i'll buy that. funny thing is when reading to many message
    boards is that i care about stuff i never cared about before.

    by the way, for the modest overclocker like myself, i'm as happy with the x48
    as i've been with xbx2 the past year and half.

    DX38BT + Q6700 + overclock = headache

    Okay all you guru's....tried first with old version bios, then most recent...
    I am not a total rookie overclocking... (this PC is a e6400 clocked to 3.2 on BX2)...but never worked with this chipset
    googled to hell looking for resolution.

    I am trying to overclock my CPU (Q6700) on this x38bt chipset. I have 1333 DDR3 corsair RAM...here is my issue.
    I tried a 10x and a 9x and I cannot seem to overclock CPU stable to (even) 3.4 GZH, without enabling "cpu voltage offset". '
    I have up volts for fsb and mch... ect.
    I can set volts all the way up to 1.6 and no dice, and YET with a voltage of 2.875 and offset enabled (+300mv = 5.875v which is less than 1.6!) I am stable....

    I should be able to overclock this CPU without enabling offset right?

    by the way temps are okay as I am using TEC cooler

    P.S. if someone has numbers for q6700 (or 6600) overclocked perhaps I can try them...

    You should NOT need the offset.

    Start with 333 * 10. You should be able to do that at stock voltages. My q6600 G0 did it with no problems.
    You should not need to touch vMCH or vFSB until you close in on 400FSB.
    What are your memory settings?
