Nf7-s Is Up And Running


Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

 

I have the new mobo and the Mushking up and running. This board is awesome. I like the differences on this board vs. A7N8X right down the new style jumpers. So now I am ready to bump up the timings a little and was open to suggestions from anyone who has this board as to how I should ease into it. I am curious as to how people are using the CPU FSB to DRAMM ratio settings and what sort of results you are coming up with.

I can't get the FSB past 230 with a mutiplier of 11.5, or past 220 with a multiplier of 11.0. Core Voltage is at 1.8 and DRAMM at 2.9 with timings of 2-2-2-11. Any suggestions?

Good lord man...230fsb is MUCH more than anyone expects to get out of an athlon. I'd say that you've simply hit the chips (or quite possibly the mobo's) limit.

I have it all watercooled. Northbridge, CPU, Video Card and Harddrive. I am running all the necessary tests to make sure that I am not overtaxing any components. I am just curious what I can, and what you guys think I should be able to ring out of this 2800+ Barton.

probally close to 2400mhz since your water cooling you can go as high as 2.1 volts if your temps stay low. also run you ram @cas2 2-2-11 that will give you the best mem bandwidth on a nf2 mobo. yeah the nf7-s makes the a7n8x look like a granny walker when it comes to voltage options. lower the multi and see how high the ram will go. bh5 chips used on the mushkin can go as hgih as 3 volts vdimm no problem

 

my hyperx can do 220 allday no problems i think my northbridge is holding me back. hopefully ill have a nf7-s soon

The best that I could do with the settings I have tried so far and still run stable is what's in my sig. I am curious as to how the CPU/FSB to DRAMM setting works in the bios Soft Menu. If anyone could elaborate on this I would appreciate it.

 

 

Thanks all,

 

Jim

 

P.S. For anyone looking to purchase something new, this is one very sweet motherboard at a very righteous price.

You've likely hit your chip's limit. Unless you want to pump 2.2v thru it, or something crazy.

 

FSB:DRAM - if you use a setting that when reduced mathematically = 1:1, for example 3:3, 4:4, 6:6, etc, you are running in synch and you definitely want this. There are reports that 4:4 works better than any other ratio. I have used both 4:4 and 6:6 with equal success.

 

If you use 6:5 or any other asynchronous speed, you will find very large drops in bandwidth and performance. You *may* get your cpu a touch higher speed as you can underclock the memory, but the overall system speed will drop. Nforce2 loves synch and loves tight timings, with the best possible being 2-2-2-11.

 

If you can run it stable @ 230fsb, you are doing better than 95% of the enthusiast population - there is a barrier just over 210 (212-215, varies slightly) for a lot of people. Plus, depending which bios version, the 8.5-9.5 multipliers are fubar and almost impossible to get stable. Bios v10 is allegedly the most stable, tho has problems with SATA - there is a modified version out there that stabilizes SATA. The next most popular bios is v18, that's what I have run since it was released, rock stable 210 X 11 on an early 2100+ TBred B, folding 24/7.
