    k so far

    as previously stated 10x240 2-2-2-10 3.4v ---- PRIME STABLE

    I just tried 10x250 2-2-2-10 3.5v----PRIME UNSTABLE

    Ill now try some more vcore... 1.55x10% = 1.7 vcore and see if im stable then

    Otherwise it looks like ill have to settle for something around 10x240 2-2-2-10 3.4v

    Whats the max vcore and temp for winnies?

    Thanks for the nice words .. The claim i made yesterday and acidbaby shared the view, that this ram enabled me to clock higher for cpu is wrong for me.. at least in terms of prime.. and prime is correct coz i get random freezes and rebooting when doing this like internet browsing and levels like 11*240

    Dont know what week, but i bought it about a month ago from an USA ebay seller who had heaps of them

    It can do 2600mhz prime stable on with my old 3700EB @ 217mhz 3-2-2-10 but cant seem to hold a high speed with lots of bandwidth

    Orker,
    something a few guys have told me that I will test tonight is that the memory controller tends to give up "before the CPU" in a lot of instances...

    Eg, a memory controller may be able to do 240 RAMHz @ 1.5v, 245 RAMHz @ 1.55v, 250 RAMHz @ 1.6v etc.... Now, the CPU may be able to do 2500MHz @ 1.5v when the memory controller is withing its limits (eg, 240 RAMHz)... so 10x250 will need AT LEAST 1.6v.

    I'm not sure if that theory is correct but will start testing it tonight like I said... if it is true (or close to it) we will have to treat the AMD64 as two different components (CPU & NB)... Eg, just like older nF2 platform, but this time vcore & vdd need to be the same..

    dude all ive been hearing about these winchesters is that they dont pass prime when oced. try something different as a test!!! do some loops or something!

I was thoroughly dissapointed when it wouldn't work on the DFI boards so never did go out and buy it. I understand about the issue of NF2 and 2 X 512mb dimms however my 2 X 512 BH-6 from you guys holds up fine. Not very high on the fsb but 222 with 3.1v memtest, 3dmark and prime stable. I can run up to 243 with 3.3v in memtest but 222 with 3.3v in windows causes me problems. I am sure the memory is just fine as memtest goes for hours at a time with no errors. I am hoping it is just a chipset compatibility with this ram as it is quite new and the bioses being older for these boards weren't tailored for this ram whatever it is. I wish DFI would hurry up and offer their new boards so I can jump off this NF2 ship and onto something bigger and better.

    thanks for looking into whatever you can do.
    I seems that you are doing pretty well from what I can find out. It's pretty much as you suspect, more than likely a memory controller issue. I think DFI is getting pretty close with their new boards. So hang in! A64 around the corner man.

    This is just SO TRUE

    Ok guys after benching and trying different settings all week the only one i am prime stable at is:

    240*10 2-2-2-10

    Even though i am memtest86 test #5 stable with no errors @ 250 2-2-2-10 3.5v (see pic) , i cannot prime with cpu clock over 2500mhz

    I tried the absolute max vcore at 250 and it did nothing.. even 245! it fails
    Now i can also say its not prime... 32m loop failed and 3dmark01 crashed sometime last night

    Is the mem controller going to be revised in january? If not, im seriously considering getting an FX53 or wont that make a difference.. I really never want to spend so much on a cpu but 2400mhz suxzorz

    Thanks Andy..

    My getting 243 is ONLY memtest stable. My chipset is very weak on my board and will get no where near that when windows loads and dual channel is running etc. My BH-6 based memory can memtest into the mid 240's with no issues however with CPC on I can't do a lick over 222 in windows. Really discouraging. I hope I can get 260 out of this memory on a new board with a booster. Only 17mhz away from my goal. I sure hope my memory doesn't crap out by then.

    So I take it you have word the DFI's are coming soon?

    FYI for canadians looking for VX Gold:

    VX 1Gig kits are available here at
    http://www.poklik.com/ ,they are located in Montreal.
    They sell OCZ memory exclusively.

    The price for the VX is not listed on their site but I was told $326.00 CAD*best price in canada*

    VX Gold is in extremely limited stock in canada so if you want one better move on it NOW!

    Could be difficult to do seeing as though there's no way of seperating the two, and also no way of supplying differing vcore and vdd.
    I've heard it all, I've seen it all, I've done it all. I just don't remember any of it.

    I can vouche for the rarity in Canada. That is also the best price. I payed 339 for my kit which was the best price until this.

    I am now at 10x245 at 3.3vdimm 1.7vcore,it has run for 2 days at 10x244 3.3v,and everyday i go up 1,so 2morow i will set it at 246 an till am at 250 or beyond ,it is stable have run a few pifast,superpi and ontop off it all i'am running D2OL 24/7,so i think its stable,if it isn't i eat my pants.

    Screenie's are following when the rig is connected to the net,i think that will be 2morow or next day.

    That 9x265(3.4v) in my sig was also stable,i've run it for 2days and nights,but did'nt make a sreen,forgot it

    OK, I am now almost certain our memory controllers are bailing on us before this mem even gets going... I'd like to see some of the guys with GOOD NewCastles & FX chips to share their results, I have a feeling their VX modules will "magically" be able to clock higher with less VDimm...

    I say this because I KNOW my CPU is at it's limits well before these babies even break a sweat... @ 3.2vdimm my modules are SOLID at 256 2-2-2 and only generate 8 errrors in 10hours of memtest at 257 2-2-2 with the same 3.2vdimm... more burn in and they will be SOLID there too I think. Then with 3.3v they are good to at least 260 2-2-2 but then my CPU needs a big hike in VCore to keep pace.

    Once conrad... CHECK YOUR EMAILS DUDE! hehehe... hosts my screenie from last night you will see where I'm at with 2x512MB VX .

    When I get another chance I will run my best stick on its own with the max VDimm I can giv it, about 3.35v I think cos my 3.3vRail is only 3.47v... it will be interesting to see if my results get better, or at least if less VCore is required. Currently my max stable is at 3.3vdimm (3.29v real) and 3.4vdimm (~3.35v real) gets me no where higher... but raising vcore does.

    I know this may be hard to answer but if you can please do. In terms of the VX vs. BH, which do you think tops out higher on average? I ask this because I am wondering if my purchase of the VX was even worth it as it seems yet again I have poor luck when buying parts to overclock. At 3.3v I can get my BH-6 to 245 rock stable for hours on end. With the VX I can only do the same at 243. Not a huge difference I know however I bought the VX hoping it would be better than my BH if not the same. It is turning out to be worse. Burning in most of the week now has proved no gains.

    I am running both sticks on my DFI Lanparty B board which is an NF2 setup. Most if not all are running A64 setups. I know its not my controller crapping out due to high speeds as same timings as my BH give me 2 more fsb without a hassle. There is no point in keeping both pairs around and since my BH is doing better I might as well sell off my VX. I am wondering if in the long run this will be worth it though. I mean, can BH-5/6 sticks do 260 with 3.5/6 volts or do they usually crap out before then? It is known that the VX can do 260 with those volts so am wondering. Will it be worth keeping the VX cause even though it is clocking lower now it may pick up on the top end where as the BH will crap out? Do you think with an A64 based chipset the VX will do better than 243 at 3.3v?

    I know this is all hypothetical as no concrete answer can be found however if you have any ideas or if anyone else has BH and VX sticks that they compared together I would appreciate your results. Until I get a new board with a booster it is hard to tell however I now have $800 canadian worth of ram sitting here where one pair clearly isn't doing leaps and bounds over the other. I might as well sell one and get some of my money back.

    Thanks again and sorry for my rambling.

    BH does keep scaling... it is VERY VERY similar to VX, apart from the ability of VX to run CAS 3.
    Keep in mind you have had your BH for a lot longer than the VX so it has had more time to burn in... in reality they are probably very similar in overclocking ability.

    BUT, the biggy bout VX is you can CONFIDENTLY feed them 3.6v (3.5v+5%) and KNOW you are supported by one of the best RMA/Customer Service departments in the industry.
