    Right finally got round to doing this!!

    I'm @ 178 at the moment! Stability testing.

    Any chance of some setting for 8-8-8-20??

    Pleeeeease :D

    Passed x5 no problem.

    And My TS bench with 2GB of RAM (Testing one at a time) is 42.682. Is this good?

    185FSB TS Bench 40.966 :D @ 7-7-7-20
    188FSB TS Bench 40.124 :D @ 7-7-7-20

    Can I get into the 30's at 7-7-7-20??

    Woooh 191FSB TS Bench 39.624 :D @ 7-7-7-20

    Looks like I have a godly chip and RAM!!

    I tried to do this so long ago with my G73 using SPDTool for the same reason.

    It didnt work and I found not all ram is capable of having the spd timings flashed so I figured that was the reason. So I guess I will give this a shot to see if it works when SPDTool failed.

    I actually paid for the full version at £23.. I guessed it would be worth it for the support. (They have been very fast on the email).

    Give it a shot. Going to do a thread later with all my results.

    No problem, you were fast to reply to my initial email which is a big plus in my book so i'll happily pay the money.

    £23 for 324Mhz is worth it in my book :D

    Grat news both sticks can run at 191, so currently got 4GB and will be running various bench marks throughout the day.

    Very happy man. 15 from 133 to 191.. Who'd have thought it!

    39.515 TS Bench with 194BLK @ 7-7-7-20 and 4GB RAM.

    What a monster i5 I have!!

    Cheers. Not sure if this software would work for the R1 TBH. I know the overclocking method is different.

    Here is my 3Dmark06.

    So are you saying i'd be better using the settings below:


    Rather than these settings:


    Very happy with the product currently testing 194BLK. 10 Intelburn test runs in and going well. 67C max temp.

    On a side note. ITS VERY VERY IMPORTANT to set the Intel Graphics Chip to max battery. I can only get 175BLK with this set to balanced. Set it to Max battery and i'm up in the 190's!

    Well, I find it hard to advise anything on these timings, because they are very specific for each system. I would not change something if the highest result have been achieved.

    Will flashing to the top set of timings damage the RAM in anyway? They look slightly faster than what i'm running now so wouldn't mind giving them a try.
