The HZ's have a little more to give. Try these timings and see what happens.


Here are my final settings and results. Anything above 270FSB was a no go at 1:1, so I settled in at 260X11 and 1:1, fairly tight timings and performance is great. Was hoping for that 275FSB 1:1 nirvana, but just wasn't going to happen. I'm happy at this point as I was able to squezze some more out of my Sandy.
