Ive just had a look at WCPUID and it has the fsb as 148.91 if i go any higher i fail PRIME95 and i dont get a full display every time during post.

My sandra memory bandwith is 755/945 is this OK? what are you guys getting ?

There where also a couple of things in the bios i wasnt sure about.

Firstly in the RAM settings there are these options
DRAM drive strength
Fast R-W Turn Around
How should i set them for best performance ?

Also in the AGP controll options how should i set the AGP write/read states ?

Are there any other bios settings that may offer better performance that i may not have looked at.

Sorry about using you guys like my own personal advisors, i do appreciate it.
No longer Epox Tech.

Best of luck in the future all my friends.

Hi Daniel, nice to be aboard!



When running a sandra memory bench you need to run in safe mode because drivers/memory resident programs can effect results.

USB devices can also decrease the benchmark, so you need USB ports disabled.

Finally, PCI cards like sblive! can hog bandwidth as well! For a true memory bench for the motherboard, you need to remove these. I never bother, but keep this in mind when comparing results to other people - how is the system set up when they take their benches?

For comparison, I set my system to 150*6.5 (Duron 800@975) and ran some memory benches.

I get 850/1030 in safe mode in Windows ME with:

a) all my USB ports enabled but not used.

b) all my PCI cards intact.

In normal Windows, I get 843/1025 @ 150 FSB.

People with high speed thunderbirds generally get 50-100 higher on both than our o/c'ed Durons.

With your benches, they look too low. Check them in safe mode, and don't use USB devices. Also, check your settings. Here are the optimal:


SDRAM Cycle Length = 2
Bank Interleave = 4 Bank
DRAM Prechg to Act CMD = 2T
DRAM Act to Prechg CMD = 6T (DO NOT CHANGE TO 5T)
DRAM Active to CMD = 2T
DRAM Burst Length = 8
DRAM Queue Depth = 4
DRAM Drive Strength = Auto
DRAM Command Rate = 1T Command
Fast R-W = Enable
Continuous DRAM Req = Enable

Hope I didn't miss anything! Oh yeah, AGP options enable everything (fast write, 1 wait state etc)
