well I hope so to...
AND since I´m a proud owner of an 8K3A+...there should be no problem with the volts ...I´m going to put on some heat spreader and mabye modd a 92mm Papst inside my case blowing on the stick, just to make this baby cooler.

Memory
Samsung PC2700 DDR (2 x 256MB modules)
Just recently discovered on sale in the UK at a decent price, the Samsung PC2700 DDR modules here do 200MHz (DDR400) CAS2 with very agressive timings at low voltage (~2.7V). Outstanding DDR modules, about the best you can buy besides modules featuring Hynix 'K'.
Taken from a proffesional source.

Hello m8.

it alowed me to go al the way up to 210fsb...but with a little issue regarding the memory timings....I can´t set it anything higner than "Normal".

Thats a very good result m8. but can i please ask you to experimeny with your memory bandwidth. rather than a race for the highest FSB you might find that you get a higher score if u drop the bandwidth a few mhz until it allows you to use turbo settings.

Have been fiddling around witj the memory timings in this bios...and it won´t allow me to set it to any thing higher than "Normal" in "Sytem Performance" doesn´t matter what fsb I´m using....but after doing some testing I have managed to set every thing else to most agressive.

This is how it looks in bios:

System Performance: Normal (suxx as )
Dram clock: 166Mhz (of course)
Dram timing: Manual
Sdram cucle length: 2
Bank interleave: 4bank
Precharge to Active: 2T
Active to Precharge: 5T
Active to CMD: 2T
Dram burst length: 8
Dram queue depth: 4level
Fast R-W turn around: Enabled
Continous dram request: Enabled
Write recovery time: 2T


And this is what iI get in Sisoft Sandra 2002

Off topic.. but slightly on topic question..

256Mb DDR333 (64Mb x 4): K4H560438C-TCB3
256Mb DDR333 ( 32Mb x 8): K4H560838C-TCB3

What's the difference between 64x4 and 32x8? Are there any performance differences? Both are model numbers for samsung brand ram.. just curious

Well my friend "K4H560438C-TCB3" are single sided...and the oc better then K4H560838C-TCB3 witch are aperantly doubble sided...and doesn´t oc like the singel sided one...and in most cases it performs better in same speed and timing.
