8RDA+ gives lowers scores at higherFSB speeds??

Hi folks I got the 8RDA+ with Tbred 1800 and XMS 3200 ram This board runs at 200FSB with 10x multiplier and I get 10400 3d mark scores, I set it at 220 FSB x 9 multipier and I get 10100 3d mark??? I would think upping FSB a whole 20 would give a better score???

There seems to be a quirk in which multipliers under 10 give lower performance. Hopefully it can be addressed in a future BIOS update.

This board is great, but seeing as I can run at 220 FSB with no performance gain guees I will stick with 200 FSB and hope there is a fix.

I think it's the best board out there. I love it so much I ordered another. Directron still has it in stock.

I tried to replicate this "lower performance at multi less than 10x" bug but I didnt notice any great difference.
Has anybody else done any propper testing ?
got any numbers to show ?

It may be that your not totaly stable at 220 and that memory errors are slowing things down.
A similar thing happens to me with AGP speed, upto 75mhz i get better performance but abouve that it runs slower. at 100mhz its stable but allot slower than at 66.
