Red face AGP Tearing...again?!?!

I just read a test of the new 8k5a2+ on tbreak ( http://www.tbreak.com/reviews/articl...2&pagenumber=1 ), and look whats in there, I will quote:

"...we were able to take the FSB as high as 201MHz FSB with RAM running at 2.90V. Anything above that caused the BIOS to go high on something showing flashing colors..."

Doh...what's happening here guys? Could it be possible that this new board has the same problems as its predecessor 8k3a(+)? What are the engineers at Epox thinking? That we don't notice it? That we will just forget about it?

Same here at 203+, (most aggressive timings) but only in the bios at this speed.

That is always the difference between one BIOS and another.

THIS IS THE ONE !!!!

I'm 99% sure CPU fast command decode is enabled, check my other post on it.

8k3a 2812 bios is FAST, It appears to have CPU fast decode enabled !

Good changes in the case of 2812. Finally some bandwidth. At least with SANDRA.

This at 199 fsb and tame timings and a little tweak with WPCRSET. Samsung DDR 400 was a poor performing stick. Right on the edge.

I think good ram is a must with this one.

Wholly crap 3051/2821 ? I cant wait to get home and try some more.

What ram are you using? Is it the new tcc4 ? Or the old tcb3 overclocked ?

New one. The ram is not very good. It needs max volts with this bios and fairly tame timings. 2.5-3-6-3 4way etc

Even with 2719 it needed 3volts at 200fsb.
