8RGA+ - great board

Just switched from RDA+ to RGA+.
Great results occured.
Can do 215FSB superstable with onboard GF4MX enabled.
Many people say that it is not possible, but in my case it works flawlessly.
3D Mark 2001 score - 5100 3D Marks.
With my RDA+ I could do only 200FSB with the same setup.
Now I can sell my GF4Ti 4200, I don`t need it anymore.

Only drawback are voltages. I have to pump 0.1V Vcore more than RDA+ to get it stable.
Comparison of voltages on RDA+ and RGA+:

8RDA+ 8RGA+
12V 12.30 11.70
5V 4.89 5.05


The power MOSFETS on 8RGA+ are giving quite opposite voltages than 8RDA+.

I am stil testing onboard GF4MX, if it work OK with my games, I shall sell 4200.
I am not much of a gamer - playing games very rarely.

I always want the best out of my equipment considering my needs and price/performance ratio.
I OC because I can speed up my onboard MX.
The other reason is divx encoding.
