A64 overclocks - what have you?
 
Just interested in what guys are getting out of their A64's. I'd post if I could :p

Anyway, what board, what cpu, voltage, fsb, MHz, ah, you know what to put down

AMD A64 XP3000+ 10 x 210mhz @ 1.5v
MSI K8T Neo with latest BIOS update
Corsair TWINX XMS3200LL C2 by SPD @ 2.7v
MSI FX5200 with TV tuner (no 64-bit WDM driver yet)

Have had it up to 10 x 220mhz, but the graphical part of the F@H client window crashes. I am not sure if this has something to do with the AGP port not liking this speed. I am experimenting with this.

10 x 225 runs stable 24/7 with kingston hyper x 3500 but with my 3200 220 is the max

Danrok got this bios from msi's site, think it might be beta not sure?

I think the version I have is 1.2. Trouble is the Live Update doesn't run under XP-64bit and I have no other OS installed on it. I can update via floppy of course.

Did you find you were able to o/c more after that update?

havent noticed any difference really, but havent really tried much overclocking recently trying to get some new ram first

danrok 7th March, 2004 07:35 PM

Which RAM are you looking at?

I've relaxed the memory timings a little, cas 2.5, and now stable at 218mhz. I think the 1.55v limit on this board is holding it back now.

Here's cpu-z. Ignore the vcore reading it's wrong, I've set it at 1.55v

Also, be sure to disable 'spread spectrum' in the BIOS.

Here's a CPU benchmark using 64-bit SiSoft Sandra.

Download it here: http://download.9down.com/software/S....SP1.Win64.rar

(This is the only place I have been able to find it)

Thats intersting as it says in manual that 1&2 give "optimum" performance have you found that 1 & 3 is better?

Man our server is FAST tonight!!

danrok 8th March, 2004 01:13 PM

Daniel - Is that your own connection? That's damn fast!

bradmax57 - RAM Guy at Corsair insists that I should use 1 & 3. I don't know if this just applies to Corsair memory.

The manual says 1 & 3 will do DDR400 as well as 1 & 2.
