Here is what I came up with testing out 2 XP's.I've been reading all over the boards of how well the 1700's are doing on the Nforce boards so i picked one up to see if it ran better then my 2100 on a KT-400.

CPU 1) XP1700+ DLT3C JIUHB 0310 1.47gigs at 1.5 volts. Highest stable OC 170x12.5 at 1.75 volts (2125 MHz) @ 39 degrees full load = a 655 MHz OC

CPU 2) XP2100+ DUT3C AIUHB 0250 1.74 gigs at 1.6 volts.
Highest stable OC 166x14 at 1.8 volts (2324 MHz) @ 42 degrees full load = 584 MHz OC

This was run on a Soyo dragon plat with 512megs of Samsung PC2700 (333 fsb). System is watercooled with a TC-4 block, Danner 5, and 2 Chevy truck heatercores. The rest of my system was running stock volts, but I did try uping the ram volts to get a higher fsb to no avail.

After its all said and done the 1700 did have a higher total OC, but I think I'll stick with the faster of the 2 processors. With some faster Ram the 1700 did seem like it could go a bit faster then the 2100 as it was a lot less tricky to get the FSB up, but it didn't like going over a 12.5 multy.

Man, with a DLT3C you should have been able to push it a lot higher. Was that the max voltage you could feed to it? Those temps are pretty low, so you should be able to get well clear of 2.2 GHz at least. Likewise for the 2100+, but to a lesser extent.

Have you tried lowering your multi and running at higher FSB speeds?

Seems like a waste of a perfectly good KT400 mobo running at only 170FSB.

Like i said i think my ram is holding me back. I'm using standard run of the mill Samsung PC2700 right now and it becomes unbootable if you get it much above 166 no matter how many volts you put to it. As for how many volts I gave the CPU's, 1.85v is a far as my board will let me go. I gave them all the volts I could to try and get it up but couldn't get the fsb up so had to go with the multy boost.

Actually, the KT400's 6 divider doesnt work so he is running it out of spec and actually running at 200FSB would probably slaughter his HD.

i am running my old soyo kt400du platnuim with a 1700 dlt3c and a junk water cooling setup (fishtank) with a small rad. now.every thing on the system has 1/4 fittings my temps are around 45c loaded ext cpu temp when it is hot out. but its running at 2350mhz @1.81v it has been on running seti for about a week now since my last reboot i think it is running @ 12.5x188 with 256MB of crucial ram cas2.5 and i think i had to up the vdimm 1 step but nothing hard on it

Even w/ only a 1/5 divider, it would still be better running in the 180-190FSB range, not necessarily in the 200FSB range.
