Alright, I know the XP333 doesn't have the fastest chipset, but I need some help. At normal DDR266, I get around 1300 mb/s in Sandra. That seems quite a bit low to me. In 3dmark, I get 6515 with a GF4 TI 4200! I'm running an XP 1600+ OCed to 1575 on a 150 mhz bus... shouldn't this be running faster? Thanks...

Will increase your benchmark results. The default settings are overly conservative. You can change the registers w/o sacrificing stability. The more agressive settings combined with 150 fsb should return a Ram Int score in the range 1950-2000.

:cool:

procedure as follows:

run wpcrset
hit add - brings up a window
in register box input 78
in data box input C0
hit ok
repeat procedure for changing register 61 to 6C
on main wpcrset screen start and enable boxes need to be checked
reboot
defrag your hdd, run sandra, should see a difference...

Calvin, I'm getting really low 3dmarks with a Ti4200... I'm hitting 7200. I should be getting 9000 with a stock card on a 133 bus, but my bus is up to 160, so it should be much higher than this... I'm wondering if there might be something else up with the Iwill XP333. Have you had any other experiences like this?

Now that memory is improved lets move to yr next issue - 3dmark. Again need to tweak things a bit. Yr score indicates you are not making proper use of agp transfers. Not unusual with nvidia card installs, the default driver condition is disabled. To get agp set up properly best way is to manually enable using the rivatuner application. It includes a function that you can use to enable ali agp.

Open 3dmark, system info, display devices. If total agp memory reported is 0, indicates a problem. An alternate procedure you can use:

1. run Regedit
2. Find this path

WinXP:
[Hkey_Local_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Video\ {********-****-****-****-*********}\0000\

Win2000:
[Hkey_Local_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Controset001\Services\nv\device0]

(Note :The GUID may not matched because this will also depend on the video card and VGA driver version.)

3. If you have followed the procedure correctly, you will find the following:

Name...........................Type.................Data
Device Description.......REG_SZ.........NVIDIA VGA card

4. Add this :

Name............................Type...............................Data
Enablealiagp............REG_BINARY...................01 00 00 00

5. Restart system

I"m gonna jump in here to see if i can get some help

I'm also running iwill xp333r, with 512 megs of pc2700 kingmax 5ns ram

I get ~ 1400-1600 mb/s in sandra

I have messed with WCPRSET/EDIT before, and changing the registers mentioned. The problem is this - it seems if i set the mem. timings to "FAST" in bios, it has the same effect as changing those registers (get 1800 - 1950 or so in sandra)
However, with the FAST timing enabled, i can't run faster than 143 fsb or so. or maybe it was 147, right around there. That was THE setting holding me back, it runs performance enabled, CAS 2, 4 - way interleave etc... all fine, just that mem timing. I thought this RAM should handle it (rated pc2700 at CAS 2) and the ram runs up to 192 CAS 2 fine, haven't tested higher.

So basically I was getting the same mem score at ~ 147 fsb with FAST timing or with registers changed in WCPRSET (if i put timing to FAST the registers are already modified for performance) as I do running the NORMAL timing in bios at say 166 - 170 fsb.

Any suggestions to improve. I have the 4-11 bios. once i tried taking out one stick of ram, then the other, didn't seem to make a diff. i thought it was a board issue then. but that was a while ago...

209 :eek:

Which memory and did you apply a voltage mod? I'm contemplating making a run for 200, but I need to replace my memory first. I've read Corsair despite its excellent reputation is not the best chioce for this particular board, so seeking alternates.

I was using my old OCZ pc3000 rev2 (samsung) 256mb and using a wopping 3,29v on it. Sadly that wasn't what killed the board.
Just hope the stick is still alive too cuz I'm gonna use it in my upcoming GB board
