Cool OCZ PC3200 Gold new BH5 die + DFI NF4 SLI-D

Well I believe this is the first worldwide posted results for 2x 512MB OCZ PC3200 Gold with the new BH5 dies. The product link is at http://www.ocztechnology.com/product...l_channel_gold



Tips for this ram on DFI NF4 SLI-D

1. don't use 325 or 326 bios they mess up the ram clocks and threw me off track as to what the ram can do. i.e. lower cpu multipliers in 325 bios don't work 10x/9x
2. best bios so far 310 official bios
3. with 310 official bios fix ddram data drive strength = 1 otherwise you can sometimes BSOD in windows, i set drive strength at 2, 4, 6, 8 fine with no probs
4. ram with 310 official bios performs nearly exactly like old BH-5 in terms of mhz ceilings at each vdimm setting
5. like old BH-5, the new BH die stuff on this ram doesn't boot at cas3
6. Trc of 10-12 is needs less vdimm, but once you change Trc to 8-9 you need 0.1-0.2v more vdimm to get windows stability
7. ram is untested beyond 200mhz speed so guess not even OCZ know what they are consistently capable of overclocking wise from module to module

so far with 310 official bios with 2x 512MB OCZ PC3200 Gold on DFI NF4 SLI-D i'm at memtest86+ v1.55.1 wise

240mhz 2-2-2-5 at 3.0v
245mhz 2-2-2-5 at 3.1v
250mhz 2-2-2-5 at 3.2v
255mhz 2-2-2-5 at 3.3v
260mhz 2-2-2-5 at 3.5v

using stock AUTO 12-14-2-3-2-4 or 12-14-2-2-2-2 or 12-14-2-2-1-2

Of course windows stability tests will probably result or change those results somewhat.

DFI NF4 SLI-D 310 official bios

120GB WD 1200JB
Pioneer A05 Burner
580W Topower 686P6 Adjustable rail 35A/12 psu
WinXP PRO SP2

- note SLI mode will probably reduce cpu related performance slightly so take that into a/c with the benchmark results.

I don't think you can buy them yet. These are direct from ocz

yes these are samples from OCZ... hopefully Aussie disty AustraliaIT.com.au imports some too. Best to go to www.australiait.com.au and check out the OCZ reseller list and contact those resellers and ask for the ram - more demand would prompt the disty to order some I guess

I'm gonna try the new 331 bios for DFI NF4 and see how they respond

What do you mean by "new BH5 die"? Does this RAM have a new version of BH5 on it?

BTW none of AustrliaIT's listed distributors are even advertising VX yet. I know there are plenty of other Aussie shops that have VX but I find it kind of odd that the official resellers seem to carry little in the way of OCZ product.
