Since alot of us have nforce2 boards, and OPP mentioned that a new bandwidth thread should be started up, I thought I'd go ahead and get one goin.

Keep in mind, this is strictly for nforce2 based motherboards and just the sisoft sandra memory benchmark. And let's keep it in sync and dual channel (if you can). Feel free to list your mods, your bios, etc, so that we can all learn from each other :)

______________

I'll start it off by posting what I think will most likely be max FSB attainable with my A7N8X.

A quick overview of mods, 1.9v on the chipset, 3.12v on the memory, 1002.001 beta bios, cpu_fsb jumper @ 100, new battery, 85w peltier + chilled water on the core (-5 to -8C temps). My PSU is also vmodded and gives me 5.15V under load approximately (not sure if that affects the high clock.) Memory is 2 sticks of XMS3500 (winbond -5ns) in DC 100% sync.

EDIT: Timings were 2.5-7-3-3 @ 240mhz. 2-6-2-2 @ 236mhz

HÂ¥percUbe: I'll have a guide up soon on how exactly I did everything on my site, Maximum OC. And as for rock solid, I could bench sandra, I could do most things in windows, I didn't try PCMark2002 but I will give that a shot eventually. Speaking of PCMark I scored 6464 @ 232 2-6-2-2.... was just testing.

Drozdov: Silly me I forgot to put it in... 2.5-7-3-3. 236mhz I can do 2-6-2-2 though. ;) (I will edit my post w/ this info.)

yes it's rock solid and 3dmarkable 233 dual channel, till 228 is quite easy

i'd better go with NF7 1.2 or 8RDA+ then A7N8X ,altought Sys got an impressive fsb with that ;)

Like Spaceboy wrote POS Vdimm. I'm thinking of modding but can't decide if it's worth it, oh yeah Epox 8RDA here with 3117 bios, btw Spaceboy that helped a lot. With my previous latest bios, I got BSOD loading windows even at 230 in normal room temperature conditions

Well the option to get to 250 is there but it would be mighty tricky to hit it! And without a chipset voltage mod or memory voltage mod on the A7N8X don't expect to get much past 205-210. :(

I am regretting not cooling my old boards NB with at least a wb, and even better a wb/pelt combo and raising the vdd to 1.85+....... that board was rockin' at the lowly 1.77 missed opportunity there... I don't trust this board as much as that 1.....and have 2 156w pelts, but the wb I have does not fit, and I would have to design a hold down out of some strap metal and bolts....been thinking about that also, as this one stops around 233/234. may lower the resistance a bit... heheheh

Guys help..I have an issue

I have the MSI K7N2-L nForce 2 motherboard, a wiretricked Athlon XP 2400+ and Kingston HyperX PC3500.

I'm at max FSB @ 200 my ram only does 3,3,7 and the CPU won't go beyond 2.2 Ghz. I'm using AS3 on the CPU and a HHC-001 HSF...Temps are NOT a problem. I'm running this as of now:

CPU @ 2.2 Ghz 1.675 V

FSB @ 200 (DDR400)

Mem @ 3,3,7 2.5V

Now I know one thing, the MSI doesn't allow VDIMM adjustments...so I'm stuck at 2.5V....At DDR400 FSB Dual channel is VERY UNSTABLE, while single channel works fine...Is that whats keeping me from the 2,2,6 settings EVERYONE seems to have?!?!?! Also..the damn MSI doesn't allow over 200Mhz on the FSB..so what do I do???

Do I have to buy an ABIT NF7 V1.2?? Or is there any hope for the MSI??? Any suggestions are welcome as I want to move to the next level! :D

sysfailur
02-25-2003, 06:54 PM
Hollywood... I would have to say that you'll need more VDD (chipset) voltage to stay stable in dual channel. You might also want to try TIGHTER timings believe it or not that might work. Also check for bios updates constantly!

hollywood
02-25-2003, 08:20 PM
Thats the problem SYS...it seems that the damn K7N2-L has NO fix for the VDIMM settings. Anyone here heard of a fix for us poor, wretched MSI users?!?

hollywood
02-26-2003, 07:23 AM
I just realized that you meant Chipset voltage (VDD) Duh...Man...That means I may have to slap on a better HSF for the northbrige and do a VDD mod on my mobo...hmm...wonder if there's any mods for the K7N2-L out yet. Now as far as the ram voltage..I think MSI will resolve the issue via a new BIOS..but it's already up to version 3.3 (started at 3.1) and they still have yet to fix the VDIMM issue..

I'm guessing it has either a PCI lock in the BIOS or they put the one sixth divider in there or both. A friend got his UPS tracking number on his w/a new T-Bred B 2100. So he should be getting his on Thurs. So we'll see what the things got. Excaliber PC has a combo deal w/the CPU & the new NF7-S 1.2 for a low low price. You'd think I work for them. Anyways, you would've had to order over the weekend to get one this week. They get a new shipment in every week. But they sell out almost immediatly. :)

You will get higher performance running fsb/mem synched than asynch.... at 200mhz synch those scores in Sandra will be in the 2900 -3000(INT- Buffered) range.... try it. Do some benching of different apps like sandra/pcmark/3dmark/games synch( around 200mhz, or the best you can do synch), and I think you will see what I am trying to say B4E.

Sure, I know what you mean, but I wanted to see where I could arrive with my FSB.

My RAM works max at 414MHz...so I coudn't test it with higher FSB!

Actually I think that's dual channel, but lower timings. I scored 10 lower on the Int, but scored 19 higher on the Float w/ my dual chan @ 2.5-7-4-4... so maybe he was using worse timings? Not sure.

Yes it's SC. 3th ram slot won't work above 220Mhz reliably when benching 3D, allthought pifast and sandra mem test work just fine 242MHz DC. (4-2-2-2 3.2V Kingston HyperX PC3000)

EP-8RDA+ v.1.1
A3 stepping northbridge

The northbridge has the ability to go all the way to 216FSB @ 1.85vdd. This is with a GF2 HS and 50MM fan; without the fan all that was attainable was 205 FSB.

Single channel, only one stick now, of corsair XMS3200. It'll go all the way up to 210ish or so @ CL2, 3-2-2 but is not stable. To run at DDR433 (216) I have to up Vdimm to 2.9v and relax the timings to CL2.5, 7-3-3.

Another thing to note is that my system is not stable at 216FSB with "Aggressive" (northbridge?) timings. "Optimal" is required. At aggressive the GUI turns bluish and other interesting visual anomalies pop up. :p

yes thats all very nice, but how many people here are running that kinda vdd for normal use? and how many people here are actually stable at any of these speeds?

what i wanna know is whats the highest vdd and highest STABLE mem clocks that people are getting in normal 24/7 use.

im at 1.91vdd and 2.9mem (shows as 3.0 though in bios), managed 225fsb at 7/2/2/2 on my NF7-S 2.0 with 2x256mb xms3500. system temp according to bios never goes above 31c under load which i think is fine using stock cooling.

SAE
04-24-2003, 02:03 PM
This vdd I am using all the time. My max stable fsb was 230MHz dual channel before taking this 1.1 out of my sys to put in my new 2.0 :mad:

After that I could not even boot at 220MHz fsb with my kingstons. So back to my good old 1.1 but my proc was changed though.
But now though pelting my nb as before I could not run fsbs like before :(

So I gotta test out the max of my 1700+ (near 2450 b/c of fluctuation of voltages) @1,78-1,82. Think I am gonna put some hs on all the mosfets to stabilize it more effectively.

Think today I am able to use 11*221MHz @2,0-3-2-2 24/7 and 4eva ;)

Hoping on a fix for rev2.0...

I'm not sure if my mobo finally bit the dust, but if it did I'll be RMAing for a a7n8x 2.0. I was told that putting a 100mhz fsb processor in my board might fix it, so I'm going to give that a shot and hope for the best. Just thought I'd update people who were wondering why I haven't been benching anything in a while :P

Just to show I'm still @ it though, here's a Soltek 75FRN-RL maxed in the bios @ 211mhz with ease. I may be getting a 75FRN2, which allows for up to 250mhz. :cool:

Hello B4E, when did you buy the A-Data, and where if you don't mind sharing? Little higher and you'll have the highest bandwidth on th planet! Woow. Forgot who it was here who said the highest was 4K?

Meaning your at 3700MB/s bandwidth, and 4000 = 4K, so if you were to breach 4000MB/s you would effectively have attained the highest memory bandwidth on a AMD system on Earth. If I read that prior statement correctly. It's here in this thread somewhere.

Yeah, I know it, but you must consider that my abit isn't modded and I only use standard air cooling system, so IMHO this is a very good result.

B4E your the man!!! Nice, really nice. Your going to have to find a Beta BIOS which allows for 275MHz FSB!

Hey shidokanjohn I just ordered the Soltek SL-75FRN2-L which allows VDD adjustment to 1.8V. It wasn't too warmly embraced initially because the board's 1st BIOS was only 200MHz FSB. It was then increased to 211MHz FSB, however; recent BIOS versions offer 250MHz FSB. And supposedly each board has the C1 stepping nForce2 NB. Speaking of NB's, I took the NB heatsink off my 8RDA yesterday, and the stepping was A3 so I was happy. I put an old Thermaltake CPU HSF on there, but haven't fired it up yet, because I had problems with my Prometeia's microfreezer contact. I think CPU temps were as high as 50C, but with the inaccuracy of PCHealth (thermistor is under CPU which is affected by Prometeia's low temps) I'm afraid I damaged my 2400+.as actual temps may have been over 60C. I had experienced all sorts of visual anomalies in the BIOS. Anyway, I'm going to give it a go tomorrow morning when I'm not so tired.

Really nice overclock guy's. Your inspiriation it can be done! But where the heck to you go after 250FSB? Wow.

Ok, I reconnected the L12 bridge as per the picture on my 1700+ JUIHB, and the cpu was indeed recognized as a 2600+ at 166fsb. But it made the overclockability worse, not better. It would not run above 222fsb stably regardless of the memory settings. This mod sounds bogus to me. This is on a Abit NF7-S v2.0 with the 1.1 bios. Disconnecting the mod let me run at 230fsb once again. Disconnecting the L12 bridge on a 2600+ should give you the same advantage, but reconnecting it on a 1700+ is a mistake.

No I didn't try it with 1.0 bios. There was another very odd thing about the reconnected L12 mod behavior: my cpu temp skyrocketed to 65C idle (watercooled) from 33C with the L12 bridge disconnected. This was not an artifact or a bad job mounting the cpu, as the water radiator was also quite warm. After disconnecting the bridge and reinstalling the temp went right back to 33C. So there's something strange going on, possibly bios-related.

But there needs to be more than just the one "reconnected 1700+ L12" positive result before I'd recommend people do this assuming it will work.

I can acheive it, but I have to lower the mutli, to the point where it defeats the bandwidth.

If you run the test unbuffered the cpu speed has nothing to do with the benchmark of the ram.

yeah I can hit 228FSB with an 8x multi, but I'm not running at 1.8GHz just for the added FSB!

I think part of it can be attributed to the stress factor. As you increase the clock speed of your CPU, it actually takes full advantage of the FSB and puts a higher strain on it. Could be wrong though, this is entirely speculation. I'm sure there are a number of factors, latency being one of them as well.

those 6gb/s scores of the 300fsb P4 rigs seem so much faster, but i just remembered that its pure bandwidth. they are not really much faster in gaming then an xp or barton with 250fsb.

with all this quadpumped fsb stories i just see the history repeating itself, intel is now taking the mghz legend to the fsb... and many people are falling for the 1.2ghz fsb. but paired with the low latency i must admit that its a different story then P4s mhz thing.

Also is prudent to disable, "Use 50% Memory Only for Test"? Could this adversly affect the purpose of the twinbank memory architecture?

BTW Tekime I think your onto something there, or it may be as simple as the vcore needs to raised to compensate for the higher clock-speed. I think your correct as far as latency is concerned at higher clock-speeds, however; raising the latency would again defeat the benchmark.

BTW emp I found clock speed is just as important as FSB, so as bias_hjorth mentioned, you may have to raise that mutli. And disabling thermal throttling is very important. Although itn depends on your motherboard, and CPU. I understand the Barton, has internal thermal throttling, so unless the motherboard has the option to disable it, that could be a problem.

I just wanted to let every one know some of the bus speeds I hit yesterday with the recent purchase of some Hyper x 3500, a NF7-S v/2.0 and a Barton 2500............I hit 246x10.5 and was able enuf to run 3dmark01 this is after only a North bridge mod running 2.1v........the recent move to a chiller that I purchased on ebay for a $100.00 has also dramaticly helped out, temps were 15C in winbond............I have a Swiftek mc50w coming and next weekend I'm moving up to a 9800 that MrZee wil help me do the v/mods too and we are planing on doing the memory mod to the board also...... currantly have a v/moded 9700 thats pushing 20064 in 01 (posted) I couldn't have done this without the help of our team mebers and Mrzee Thanx

If someone can help me about posting screenies :-) Where? URL

I'm now coming to run with the big Dogs. Ruff ........cowpuppy.

hit 250x10 yesterday. I have screen shots I just cant post them (option is not availible if someone could explain why?) this is in DC still. tried 255 but I think I'll have to do the mem mod to get any higher............I was able to run 03 @246x10.5 w/a mild overclock on the vid card temps were 9C



runnin with the big dogs. Woof

4Gb?!? I think that it is impossible with an AMD sys @the moment or?!?

no its says on the pic. solvet posted it in this very thread some pages back. he scored so high because of the 3ghz cpu power +250fsb . i actually think that 4gb can be achieved 100% stable. maybe we need another nf2 revision or a new amd stepping (cpu power is very important for high bandwidth scores)

i only reach 2.3ghz (11.5x200) without any mods so far. watercooling for cpu and chipset on the way, got the vr for the vdd mod and everything, but at the moment i dont even have any money for the hoses i still need to buy :( and i always tell myself that i dont have any time to do it, but i end up hanging around in this forum for about 1 hour a day... i should spend that time to finally get watercooled.

i outperform the 3000+ and 3.06 P4 in both of sandras cpu benches but barely reach 3gb/s memory bandwidth :(

Estide
06-11-2003, 10:08 PM
Sandra 2003 "needs" more Cpu power to reach high bandwith but i heard that the Cpu power Sandra 2000 is equal :) test it :D

I know your Porblems because thats the same that I have :D

My Cpu is already Watercooled, thank good but there are so many other things i should do (e.g.to leanr for the English class Test tomorrow) but what i do is playing chess with a good friend 4hours a day 7days per week :D But don't talk to much lets Oc´:)

doch ist ein T-bred A- aber er ist ja passiv gekühlt, das schafft man mit Luft net ;) Der DLT ist unterwegs (mit ner Ti4200 hab ich getauscht gegen meine 9500NP), sollte schon samstag da sein...wenn der Typ mich verar****hat dann gibt es Tote :D
Die Kingston sollen auch nächste Woche eintrudeln, Graka und NB kühler kommen in vier wochen bis dahin muss das Case fertig sein, ich meinen AB zusammengepappt haben, VDD,VBR+VDimm Mod muss gemacht werden usw... schaff ich bestimmt net :( *g*
Aber lass jetz mal wieder English labern oder emailen (estide@web.de)sonst werden wir noch rausgeschmissen :D

actually i think i can run my 1700+ passive. it runs stable with 1.4v up to 1.5ghz i think! temps are so extremely low that im sure i can unplug the cpu fan (i have a huge heatsink -> coolermaster) and itll run ok. so your getting a 4200 or your getting a 9500np?

vdd mod is pretty easy. (50m von hier wohnt son elektro türke zu dem alle hingehn wenn sie probleme mitm fernseher, videorecorder etc haben. der typ hat meinen fernseher für nur 15€ wieder zum laufen gebracht! der zeilensetzer war im arsch... bei nem anderen technik laden meinten die den fernseher kann man knicken! ich kenn den jetzt schon ganz gut und werd ihn fragen ob er mir eben 2 kabel an die stellen löten kann. macht er bestimt umsonst :D

if there is a shop like that close to you go there and ask them! (but watch them carefully, if they dont look very skilled or motivated better do it yourself)

another way if you dont feel confident enough is go to conrad if theres a shop close to you. they have very skilled soldering people and im sure theyll do the job for 5€.

where did you order the kingston ram and for how much? hyper x 3500 right?

lol, mine at 1.52V and 30C h20 ;)

I can do default freq. (1733) with 1,25V :D

@saaya I have sold my 9500, now I have an Ti 4200 but this card don't want to go higher then 300/600.. The DLT 1800 I have, seems to be bad too....
I want to do The Mods myself... :)
I bought the Kingston memory from a Forum member of Hluxx(celemine1Gig), and he bought them on Ebay (it's a longer story)
It is 2700 kingston Value Ram with Bh6 Chips
The Forum Meber bought the 2700 Vdata too, so we (He the Vdata and I will test the Kingston)can test the Chips :D

But now back to topic
With an 1700+@1700mhz and an FSB@208 I have an bandwith from 30XX

Have a good day

SMOKIN! :)

4g is deffinitely possible. When my 8rda3+ arrives, and I get some LN2, I'm going to shoot for it :)

i think none of the peops here has done the vbt mod right? that should boost max fsb by another 5-10mhz :)

Estide

The VBT is for the Vdimm(VBT should be the half of Vdimm) or?!?

yeah its yet another memory voltage, but since the memory is keeping people from gettng 4gb/s and not the chipset this will really help i think.

you will need 3ghz cpu and 250 with tight timings to break 4gb/s wall in sandra buffered.

saaya
06-23-2003, 08:09 AM
255, theres a screenshot of solvet who has 3ghz+ 250 and only got 3990. well that was with cl 2.5 though i think.

I feel VBT mod is only for 8rda's...

Got a (two) nf7-s!!! :cool:

Yes only for 8rda and only if you do the Vdimm Mod
