xjedi Posted May 11, 2006 Posted May 11, 2006 Hi, I just bought the dfi-lanparty Rx200 and I was wondering why im not able to overclock like I was able to on my last motherboard. My current settings are : HTT: 3x DDR: 166mhz cpu voltage: 1.55v cpu vid: 1.04% ram voltage : 2.99 chipset voltage: 1.4 timings: 3-3-7-3 1T fsb:260mhz cpu frequency : 2.34ghz Before I switched over to pci-e I had a gigabyte agp motherboard that allowed me to overclock to 2.6 ghz at 288 fsb.. But now im struggling to get it stable at the settings I have it on now. My cpu speeds bottleneck the video card so much now that I get lower performance then my previous AGP system I had before. The system I had before was a gigabyte k8ns mobo, with a x850xt pe, the same cpu, and the same ram ... the only thing that is different is the psu which I switched from a forton source 450 to the antec 550 NeoHE psu because I thought that getting a new PSU would fix my stability problem, but it didnt of course .. When I first switched over to PCI-E I bought the a8r-mvp motherboard which overclocked like a charm but it wasnt stable enough... I figured that the problem was the fact that The maximum voltage that I could set to my cpu was 1.52 volts. So I bought the DFI Rx200 motherboard since the bios allows more leway with CPU VID but sadley it is performing worse than the a8r-mvp motherboard in the stability even without the voltage limitations. Mabye Im doing something wrong , but Ive read the overclocking guide and ive looked all over for modded bios or something that will allow me to get better stability but I havent found anything yet. Its sad but without overclocking my performance is alot worse than my agp setup which is rediculous because I have a x1900xt!Can someone please help me!? :sad: Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
