What mods have you guys done that are runnign 200+FSB?

Just curious. Thats some very impressive numbers some of you guys are running. What sort of mods and memory are you running to attain that speed? Are you using voltage mods or aftermarket cooling?

Hi loafer87gt,

Welcome to the forums M8!!!!!!!!

Most people achieving this high FSB speed are very experienced overclockers. However to achieve such a high performance many people are using the beta bios from Epox which seems to have an SDRAM divider enabled. Also most people are using high quality RAM like Crucial, Corsair and Muskhin. The only mod that I know of at the moment is the Vcore mod that increases the voltage supplied to the processor which can help high FSB speeds. Also they will have their VDIMM voltage maxed!!!!

Question

Would they also have jumpered the L1 bridges, or can this be done without surgery?

L1's do need to be painted in order to operate such high bus speeds.

You dont need any mods to get a FSB of 200+. Im running my board and CPU without mod at 200FSB. (My CPU L1 bridges were never cut in the first place)

Nor do I even need high memory voltages. My Kingmax PC2400 runs fine at default voltage. The 3/4 memory divider allows the memory to run at an easy 150mhz.

Epox Tech was taking about the newer XP chips only not the unlocked T-Birds.

You cannot run an AMD XP 1900+ at 200FSB with default multiplier settings!!!!!! Even if you pump 2.2volts into it!!!

You tend to find yourself pressing the INSERT key at reboot in those instances !

Paul - dual Vapochill is apparently almost ready for me. I've got two MP processors ready for it.

That's g8 M8! Are you placing 2 XP1900+ MP chips or 1800+ chips. Cant wait to see some benchies from your dual setup.

Keep me informed,


Paul.K

PS You should be able to hit 1.8Ghz+ with very little probem!!! And that will be a nice Christmas presant!!!

We got two 1Ghz parts at present.

Our MPX board will come out when the chipset is right (revision B1) and will not ship with buggy USB and other problems. So if anyone is wondering where the M762A is - its not far off - AMD are just perfecting the chipset to make a most wonderful offering.
