Right, so when I was still in South Africa, I had a Gigabyte P35-DS3R board, which was great for my OCing needs - I had no problems overclocking. Things were simple and easy to use in the bios. I had no problems getting awesome bandwidth, and using my Trascend axe ram DDR1200 modules, I cracked 10000+mb/s in Sandra 2008 at around 500 FSB with great PL too.
Now, I have moved to the UK, and thought I'd try out a P45 board for my new rig. Anyway, I can get some decent overclocks so far (I only want 3.6ghz and 4.0ghz for some OCL leagues (friendly)). The problem is, I can't get a good performance level. There are so many extra settings like PLL, Termination voltages etc...
Basically I need help.
I need to get 515 x 7 for 3600mhz, but I need a good PL - like 8 at least. I can't seem to get this right. I know my board and cpu can get 515FSB, its just so damn unstable at the moment. I can't get a full 3D run in.
My specs are as follows:
Asus P5Q P45 Pro
2GB OCZ (ATI heatspreaders) DDR800 4-4-4-12 (This is crap I know, but I will be moving on to some G-skill DDR1150 modules soon) - these so far I have got to DDR1030 5-5-5-15.
ATI HD4870 512MB
OCZ GameXStream 600w PSU
So can anyone help me with some good settings to try get 3.6GHz with a decent PL? 515FSB is crucial, as I am aiming for 24k in 3D mark 2005, and need the higher bandwidth to be available. I can't get much more than 23k with only 400 FSB :/
Anyone care to help me out here please!
