so other games like Left 4 Dead, Call of Duty 4/5 will run pretty good at 1280x1024

Lol, I managed to hit n1 spot in all rankings besides Vantage today after noticing two of my four records were alread broken yesterday, but not even 3h after I posted my new results, the 05 benchmark got beaten again.

Back to the bench table!

Yesterday, I had a few benchmarks scoring incredibly low for no apparent reason. When I checked the CPU-Z memory details, however, I saw that the memory was clocked at ~480MHz CL5, instead of the 640MHz I set in the bios. Apparently, it was not possible to run with the 1067 divider.

Today, I spent a few hours figuring out what was exactly causing this bizare issue. I went over the different timings, HT Link frequency settings, different combinations and finally ... I figured it out.

To get the 1067 divider working properly at high memory MHz overclocks, enable 2T mode. Even if you're certain the memory could run 1T, it seems to be a technical issue more than a memory bottlenecked issue. If you disable the 2T mode, the bios automaticly resets the memory to the 800MHz divider, even if you've manually put 1067MHz.

By the way, in the proces of figuring out this issue, I also figured out a golden setting for benchmarking .

This new hardware tweak is great!
