    OCZ Platinum PC3700EB in K7 System

    I've decided to try some PC3700EB in my mobile 2600+ system, I was just wondering what should I expect out of this stuff...? I've seen some crazy OC's from it in K8 and P4 systems.

    Anyway, I wanted to try it in a K7 system.

    Thanks for any input.

    It won't perfom the same on a k7 as on the k8 or intel. A64 isn't as depending on cas latencies as the k7 is.

    Probally you're better off with bh5's...

    well I seem to have 240FSB right now ok. 2.9vdimm, 3-3-2-11 (stock).

    Anybody got any tips for this memory in a DFI Infinity? Like for those other timings (e.g. Act to Act, etc..) or if CPC should be on or off. They are the 2x256 kit.

    CPC should be on. Other timings I am not sure about, but I reccomend asking SAE, Saaya, Last Viking, or Evil_Spork as they seem to know Infinity's pretty well.

    Try setting the timings to 3-2-2-11, you have plenty of voltage to work with so I wouldn't worry about it limiting your speeds...and the tighter timing is worth it, especially in an nforce 2 setup.

    ram timings:

    3(or 2.5)-2-2-2-11(x)-9-12 (x = adjustable depending on ram, some do better at 10)

    e-e-f-e (CPC, superbypass, etc)

    alpha timings:
    1-3-3-3-2-1-3 - The old standby
    1-3-3-3-3-3-4 - Most stable (SAE and LVK)
    2-3-3-3-3-3-4 - Setting on latest nF7 D25 bioses, may be worth a try.

    Drive strenght: 6
    Slew rate: 7

    Note: I have not tested "2-3-3-3-3-3-4" or adjusting the slew rate yet...

    Using 2-2-2-2-11-9-12-eefe-1-3-3-3-3-3-4-a-a-a-a-a I am stable at 250fsb on my BH-6 for 1000 (not a typo) passes of memtest test #5 so far...

    EDIT

    Click here for what is used on the D25 nF7 bios.. good starting point for adjusting drive strength and slew rate probably

    WOW, thanks a lot STEvil. I'll try some of that stuff and get back to this topic with results.



    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    EDIT: Well, here are first initial results....booted into windows and typing on it right now at:

    Settings :: 233 FSB, 2.8vdimm, 1.6vdd. (all stock)

    Timings :: 3.0-2-2-2-11-9-12-1-3-3-3-3-3-4-eefe-a-a-a-a-a

    Other :: 10x Multi; 2.33GHz @ 1.65vcore (laziness, for stability. I don't remember exact lowest stable vcore, somewhere around 1.500v)

    I need to test further for exact stability with memtest and such.

    Ok....

    - 245 FSB
    - 3.3 vdimm
    - 1.9 vdd

    Timings: CAS 3.0-2-2-2-11-9-12-1-3-3-3-3-3-4-eefe-a-a-a-a-a

    - 10 passes of memtest #5
    - 5 whole passes

    Error Free.





    I tried 250 FSB but it only got through 3 passes of memtest #5 then errored (2 errors) at the end of pass 4. As soon as that happened I gave up on it. Im sure if I relaxed a few timings I could get it stable. But right now im happy with 245 at the current timings. Especially since this isnt BH-5. I've also got an 6800 Ultra coming in, in like 2 days so I want a pretty rock solid FSB for it's arrival.

    So those are my final results for now. I'd assume this would be a good reference topic for anyone pondering to buying this RAM on an NF2 system.
