Having given up on the 790i, where to next>?

I can't, unfortunately, actually push this chip mate, because my RAM is a two-timing whore which I was ripped off for. They can just barely do 900MHz so I haven't actually been able to test it properly. Max so far is 4.1GHz. :-(

concon i just leave all those secondary settings alone as i don't really know what they do so i don't touch them as a rule of thumb :) also you will have to decide what volts are safe but i came to the conclusion from trawling other forums that anyone running above 1.5v lost a great deal of overclockability from it :/

Gah, can't seem it push past 4.27Ghz..

Current settings:
FSB - 425
Vcore 1.37volts after droop
NB - Auto (1.1v default)
VDram - 2.1v
Timings - 5-5-5-12 (looser just to eliminate the fact they could hold me up)

anything else I could add here?

Which is FSB voltage?

Is that the NB voltage?

Btw here's my new score 14k
http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm06=8076867

Compared to my Q9450 at 3.6Ghz 14.5k. I think it's been an interesting experience learning about this change back to dual core.

Nah he wasn't going to keep it, but TheFrunj in his twisted deformed state bit his finger off, and took the CPU with it, and fell into the fire's of mount doom. In the land of Santa Clara

And stroking it calling it "my precious" all the way down.

Well my mind wonders how much stock is lost due to lava damage?

And how thin the next fab process will be in such a primitive fab plant :P

Okay.. So I just got my new graphics card this morning, a brand spanking new HD4870. So my question is, how do I turn down the fan speed before I do permanent damage to my ears???

BTW Rivatuner is not working!

did it come with a 7v connector? if not what temps are you getting? i get about 40c idle and 55-60 load depending how heavy it is.

Mine is idling on about 50c which I know is a bit hectic. But the thing is, it was sooo farkin loud, I had to remove the connector of the second fan!

and now I have a computer that is quiet again. It was like this high-pitched whine that wouldn't go away... I unplugged the fan, so now only one operates.

BTW what 7v connector?

Okay so this thing comes with a program called VTune, which I am assuming is XpertVision's own software. So I loads it up, and hey, they minimum fans speed is 50%... that's right, no option to go lower... so out frustration, I pulled the plug on the smaller fan, who was the culprit for all the noise.

But now that I have gone back into VTune, I have set the fan speed to 58%, which is still quiet, but now the card aint cookin'. now sitting on a very tolerable 41c. and did I mention quiet!

oh i was just thinking they may have provided you with like a molex to 7v power connector because the twin turbo module i got came with one and the ability to be controlled by the card bios via the pwm plug or whatever its called.
