    I have a feeling there is more to the reasons for the lack of stability than meets the eye here...maybe its our boards or CPU's...its just hard to tell.

    On a side note guys we test to 240 or so 2-2-2 but going by results seen on this thread overall results can be VERY different. I said this before and i feel i must repeat that this is NOT DDR500 ram, we don't test it that high as there are just to many factors involved in getting a solid guarantee at that speed.
    Well in my case, that is hard to justify with above clause since the other sticks of VX were doing fine 256, 258, 267mhz @ 3.5v. To put blame on mobo or CPU is bit iffy unless I had 3 strange cpu and 2 mobos (yes the failed one in my book usually gets special treatments). If this type of incident is isolated only to me, these are very good memory for price. Even if it is not, if you don't have to RMA often (hah! :P) it still is.

    As for 3.3 -> 3.5, I got about 6-10mhz gain. Rookie is going to test my good pair of VX on A8N and tell me if divider issue is still present on other mobos. (NF4 Sli one's especially... got this memory in anticipation of SLI anyway)

    Bacchus, I suggest you try to boot with another memory quick before putting these VX one again. I don't quite know what it is but I had similar sympton and disappeared once I put TCCD in for short time and put VX back. Also, 3.51v, the memory approaches around 50c in my setup. booster pumping heat out from mosfet next to memory doesn't help either. Try better cooling real quick to see if that is the culprit.

    I think tonys point is that its PC-3200 and doing 2-2-2 at anything remotely near 500 is quite amazing by itself

    Keep in mind sucess at overclocking is affected by so many things

    for example I have 2 msi socket 939 motherboards in my personal lab , let me show you some results I got with a few pairs of PC-3200 rev 2 plat( max memtest stable speed 25 passes test 5 )

    Kit # 1 board # 1 = 281
    Kit # 1 board # 2 = 275

    Kit #2 board # 1 = 273
    Kit #2 board # 2 = 279


    As you can see the results make no sense , just one CPU / board /PSU combo likes one pair better that the other

    I am sure I could isolate the problem exactly given enough time , but we accept that things like room temp / electrical noise and so on vary.


    Our solution to that problem is to build enough overhead into the products that its imposible not to mee the spec ( in this case the spec is 200 2-2-2 @ 3.3 volts )

    With that said, I'm buying myself a Zippy PSU for the Holidays.

    lol

    I've had a 600w powerstream on order since middle of last month.. darn retailer keeps pushing their ETA back

    Ah well, gives me time to dial in a few settings.

    All along the watchtower the watchmen watch the eternal return.

    Zippy 650 +3.3V@45A, +5V@50A, +12V@36A

    OCZ Powerstream 600 3.3V(28A),+5V(46A), +12V1(20A), +12V2(18A) total 12v 38A


    It beats us a little, except the 12 volt... but not for long

    That 3.3vRail is the real clincher for me... 2x512mb @ ridiculous must suck a fair bit of amps from that rail, and once the voltage is raised the amps available would fall... 45amps is jus plain naaasty

    So Ryan, no mention on that offer I made you?

    If the Zippys are good enough for the top dogs in Japan, it's more than good enough for a frustrated overclocker in California like me.

    1) Reasonable priced PSU. Bit hard to do but Powerstream 520W is about 15% more expensive in general than when it came out... LOL

    2) Forget the size. We want the power. Looks are nice too but not worth sacrificing for power. I suggest you guys acquire Zippy 700W PSU yourself and see how lay out of PSU is drastically better as well as size of components used due to its length (22cm). I know it is not for everyone but so is the bigger than 600W PSU. Might as well go all out if you were going overboard anyway.

    3) Despite the fact I didn't buy OCZ 600W, I love how your 20+4pin and 4+4pin lines are set up. Keep up the goodies.

    4) Read PC&P's claim of how they measure, etc and claim similar act on your end.

    5) Maybe another non standard connector with optional multi meter display that displays voltage of selected channel would be nice on this top dog. Easily switchable between 3.3v, 5v, 12v would give us better idea than LED for actual voltage supplied without having to probe too deep :P (Even using standard molex with different marking, etc could do it so people can still use DMM if they wish).

    6).... I ran out of thinkings Now do I get something if one of my idea is used ?

    I would like to see all of the above in a new product dubbed the OCZ Powerstream 690.

    690W of ultra-clean power with the absolute bare-minimum noise
    +3.3V@69A
    +5V@69A
    +12V@69A

    We'll all refer to it as The Big 69er. I'll be willing to cough up $400 for one if you decide to put it out on the market.

    no idea what it is with the price of our products rising over time , the weird thing is we dropped the cost to retailers since the products have been released

    notes take on the rest of the stuff

    Sorry about getting off topic guys

    sorry for going on with my "problem" but i finally fixed it.... ufff..

    so to summarize all my efforts, i'm back with error free "memtesting" @ DDR512 (as i was few days ago). the problem was voltage.... i'm at 3.45v now and even cranking volts to 3.5v generates errors now....

    so, for now i just keep it burning at 3.45v and we'll see if i can squeeze out anything more of those VX

    Fine wine gets better with age. You've only been sipping from the glass for 4 days.

    Here's to hoping you get what you want out of that memory.

    Err... Rookie tested my memory with his awesome cooling prowess and steady voltage on dimm and got 270 2-2-2-x on my pair of sticks I am going to ask tomorrow exactly what he did when I see him to drop nice goody off (can we say SLI :P)

    Do you guys reallly need a 700w+ PSU? How low are you rails using a 500w PSU? I ask because I can't imagine how my 530w Fortorn wouldn't be enough unless I ran some tecs or something.

    Why go only to 690w,why not go direct to 1000w and make a beast of a PSU,now that woot be xtreme .
