Hi all,
i've just downloaded the "latest" BIOS for my board from Epox. It's been out over a year. Anyway, what i've just found out is that it has CL1.5 support! And guess what, i've got it running. ok, i'm using a 100 Divider just for now but it seems to be running ok. Personally, i don't expect it to last too long, but i'm just gonna hope. I'm surprised the computer even booted since the memory doesn't even support CL1.5 (according to Corsair).

I'm gonna verify it can gimme 3DMark05 and 3DMark03 scores without crashing. If it's higher than my previous score of about 7000 (in 05), then i know that timigs are better.

All i need now is a CL1 rating!

Should i go for lowering my CPU multi and upping the clock speed, or should i just raise the memory divider? It wouldn't load windows for too long at 183 (a new divider included with the BIOS) but it did get to the desktop for about a minute.

you should really be load testing with prime 96 / memtest if you want to see if your OCs are stable
