All of us here at x64bit.net wish everyone a
Merry Christmas and prosperous New Year.

Scara's build part 2:

All that I can say is that the progress has been excellent - Lino

“I took the Core temps after rebooting back to 3Ghz as I forgot to do it clocked.....LOL........but they are near enough as we are only talking seconds just after the Prime run......

Gonna try for 4Ghz later but it will be a struggle I think as this BIOS is very picky......had to relax timings on RAM more than I would have liked and had the RAM at 2.3v.

Looks like I'll have to really up the chipset volts for higher figures.......

Still.......only 1.8s behind RJsPC's score of 12.281s now”

Athlon 64 FX-70 series launchedseries

The FX-70, FX-72 and FX-74, clocked at 2.6GHz, 2.8GHz and 3.0GHz, respectively. All three are fabbed at 90nm and contain 2MB of L2 cache. Their on-board memory controllers support up to 800MHz DDR 2 unbuffered SDRAM, AMD presentation slides reveal.

As expected, they use AMD's workstation- and server-oriented 1,207-pin Socket F infrastructure. They are each rated to consume no more than 125W of power. AMD will brand the two-socket systems as Dual Socket Direct Connect (DSDC) technology.

Major NV driver bug on 8800 series!

On most systems, any driver from 97.28 and up has a bug in which it causes 2 of the 3 memory clock generators to stick at 400mhz regardless of what your overclocking software is telling you. Using Rivatuner you can see it happening.

Status: not RivaTuner issue, NVIDIA driver's bug, two of 3 memory clock frequency generators are really running at 400MHz

G80 boards use 3 independent memory clock frequency generators (1 generator for each 2 memory channels). When the PC is booting, core/memory clocks are set to much lower clocks comparing to the clocks set in Windows GUI, and at that time BIOS programs all 3 memory generators to 400MHz. When the OS finish loading, driver must switch all 3 generators to target memory clock. 97.02 driver does it properly, 97.28 - doesn't and leaves 2 of 3 memory clock generators running at BIOS defined 400MHz clock.
