Don't worry dude, should be safe with me
[hwbot] Eliminos - 31.848 - AMD Athlon X2 3800+ @ 2.75GHz / G.Skill HZ 1T 250MHz 3-4-3-8 [/hwbot]
my super pi record with my pc in sign.
it says i have to sign in to view that mate... you got anywhere else to host it ?
I like the frosty monitor effect
Got the ram in, had Pi running without pushing CPU or RAM, and managed a smidge over 30s. You better run!
[hwbot] Shadowed_fury - 29.656s - Opteron 144 @ 2.835GHz - Gainward 7800GT @ 500/1200 - PQI 3200TCCD @ 267MHz 2.5-3-3-6 1T 2.7V [/hwbot]
Get in Grats on breaking the 30 second milestone mate What alpha's you got that ram running at btw? Should be able to squeeze a little more outta it time wise
Still not quite got me mate although i think my cpu is a bit borked as it wont go over 2.6 anymore. I've got a X2 3800 on the way though so it's going to be relegated into my media pc when that gets here.
With the next planned additions to my watercooling. I hope to improve it.
That is literally, at its max.
Your on water too, that makes me feel even better about my air cooled time then!!
I'm board limited. Most annoying
I was with my epox board which is now in my media pc, hense the upgrade to an AN8-SLi
EDIT in response to shadow fury reply below.
For the money they really are excellent, shame about the whiney cooler. I was pretty damn impressed with mine (which uses the nf3 chip). Will be re-uniting the opty and the epox as soon as my X2 gets here, i've got a zalman cooler for the nb too which will go on when the opty goes into it, s silence isnt far away
Its a good board. Top10 is pretty impressive for an Epox.

I guess its not too bad considering its an old 2800, I cant seem to get anything faster thats more stable though
Have you tried slackening off the RAM timings a bit as your getting near the 200MHz the ram is rated at, so i'd have though loosening the timings to the default 2.5-3-3-7 should allow it to get you up to 200fsb. I know thats what i did with my 2600 to get to 2.5GHz. What cooling are you using? and temps are you getting?

Ya beat me
Can you lot give me some hints on tweaking, apart from the obvious. Ive just fiddled basic timings, multi and fsb at the mo.
Thanks dude Not much in it left. And Computer loop is now leaking :|
Get A64tweaker. It let you do tweaking in windows on the memory.
No real advice for using it, each memory stick/board is different. So just fiddle with a (one at a time) setting, run PI. And see if its slower or faster. Repeat until it crashes. And then get as tight as possible.
You need to find your fastest clock speed with memory speed first, and tweak from there really. Most of the time MHZ>Timings. However, I did get a seconds worth from little tweaks!
