Here's my results so far, I'm hoping maybe you guys can help me out. I won't discuss overclocking my video card right now, though its something I've been messing around with. I've been using the Half-Life 2 stress test to simulate load.

 

STOCK SETTINGS:

Asus A7N8X Deluxe Rev. 2.0 BIOS 1007

Athlon XP 2500+ (166x11.0=1826Mhz, 1.65V) w/ Cooler Master Aero 7+

1Gb (2x512Mb) Corsair XMS PC3200LL (5-2-2-2, 2.6V)

GeForce FX 5950 Ultra 256Mb (475-950)

Windows XP Home SP2

 

OVERCLOCKS:

Proc: (200x11.0=2200Mhz, 1.725V)

Ram: (6-3-2-2, 2.6V)

Results: Totally stable, used this config for months now

 

Proc: (200x11.5=2300Mhz, 1.80V)

Ram: (6-3-2-2, 2.6V)

Results: Boots to Windows, seems stable

 

Proc: (210x11=2310Mhz, 1.80V)

Ram: (6-3-2-3, 2.6V)

Results: Boots to Windows, crashes under load

 

Proc: (220x10.5=2310Mhz, 1.80V)

Ram: (7-3-2-3, 2.6V)

Results: Boots to Windows, crashes under load

 

I have a feeling its my RAM thats holding me back from going with a FSB above 200. Any tips would be appreciated.

im running my 2500+ athlon 2500+ @ 2.4ghz

 

200x12 @ 1.65 volts

 

memory timings 2 3 2 11 @ 2.8 volts

 

its perfectly stable.. i've seen lots of people with really high core voltage.

 

i was running mine @ 2.2 Ghz with 1.5 volts until i OC'd it more.

 

but anways, cant you just up the clock to 12? or set the ram divider lower..

Thats always the killer about the A7N8X-DX.. it just won't go over 210 FSB no matter what hardware you through at it. Would have to consider a Volt Mod before getting it any higher.
