While waiting for Alpha Pal 6035 delivery I've been trying to see what this thing might do. The only success I've had is to 1000. Very disappointing. At 1050 I can post and run WinMe until it locks up. At 1100 it will post and immediately shut down. What settings should I try in the WZ bios? Specifically:
CPU FSB/PCI clock?

CPU power supply

Fast CPU Command Decode?
CPU drive strength?
Enhance chip performance?
Force 4-way interleave?
Enable dram 4K-page mode ?
Dram Clock?

I've only had limited success changing the multiplier factor. Any thing over the 100/33 setting for the clock doesn't want to work. Any special settings for RAM? Temps running at 1000 are 30-40C.
I am running with a Netgear 10/100 card (FA310TX) that I've tried with and without. Didn't seem to matter.
Thanks in advance, Scarzo
well with my KT7A-raid board i had to bump my I/O voltage to 3.5 up to 140 mhz
3.6 up to 150 mhz and 3.7 for up to 162 mhz FSB

as for your core voltage i would try raising it a little ...that is if your temps are ok now

keep it under 50C and you should be fine

what RAM you have?
Here's the way I have my bios set.

fast cpu cpmmand decode = fast
enhanced chip = enabled
force 4way interleave = enable
enable dram 4k-page mode = enable
dram clock = hclk+pciclk ( this is your pc100 or 133 setting)
set your core v to 1.8
set your i/o v to 3.4

Advanced Chipset

Dram timing= turbo ( for all three banks )
dram bank inteleaver = disable ( you only have 1 bank and if you try 2 or 4 way it will lock your system up when you try 3dmarks )
delay dram read latch = auto
md driving strength - hi
sdram cycle length - 2 ( cas settings )
memory hole = disable
pci master pipeline req = enable
p2c/c2p concurency = disable
fast r-w turn araund = disable
system bios cachable = disable
video ram cachable = disable
agp aperature size = 64m
agp driving control = auto
fast write supported = no support ( this one will lock you up during 3dmark as well )
cpu to pci write buffer = enable
pci dynamic bursting = enable
pci master 0 ws write = enable
pci delay transaction = enable
agp master / ws write = disable
agp master / ws read = disable

You might be maxing out your processor as well. I had a 1gig tbird that would post and run fine all the way up to 1179 but it couldn't do any games or or 3dmarks past 1089mhz. I got this new chip and no problems what so ever with games or benchamrking.

Basicly they break out every single KT7A Raid BIOS variable for you. ;-) It should help, lord knows it helped me.

G'luck with it.
