I have a Kt 4 Ultra SR with an athlon xp 1600+ agoia Y. I am running the fsb up at 170 mhz right now with 1.85vcore. I have not unlocked yet and this is as high as i can safely go on air cooling (volcano 9, ducted).

this yeilds 1806 mhz as my oc. sandra reads 1.81 ghz. any higher than 170 gives me bsod's though. my crucial cas 2.5 pc 2700 cannot keep up to that, sadly.
I should note that this board has an automatic 166 fsb setting. if you set it to 166 in bios, it will enable the 1/5 divider. I would be interested to see if it has a 1/6 as well, but im not nearly brave enough ;)

The VIA KT-400 nas NO 1/6 - sad but true...

I didnt think it did. but it would have been nice. 1/5 is fine though as 200 mhz only runs pci at 40 mhz. that isnt TOO bad. but it still too high for my liking.

kt4v OCed

kt4v + unlocked xp2000
1 piece samsung 512m pc2700
WD 60G
raidmax 400w psu

I'm still playing but so far:
10*183fsb 99% stable
11*174fsb most aggresive memory settings 100% stable

Anything over 186fsb causes data coruption on HD. I just can't get to 200Mhz which should equal pci speed of 40Mhz, even though the same hardware did pci/42 in a kr7a mobo with no data coruption. Not sure weather it is the memory or HD holding me back?

Nice what's your vcore and memory voltages to achieve this?

you cant spell stupid w/out SIU
190x9.5, 1.775vcore, still tweaking memory will have benchies soon, but first i have to install a few programs after that data corruption (FSB200 is imposible with my HDD, hope i can hit it with the new sata HDD's) this is the highest i will go (38Mhz on the pci, but ive got more room on the vcore for a better multi)

ill have benchies soon

he he. i think i saw 173 mhz somwhere in here at ... *blinks* 1.755... either that had weeks of burn in or it crashes ever other minute. heh. I think im going to burn in mine. I can see a glimmer of 2000 mhz hitting this cpu, but a burn in will be in order. i think ill lower it to 1400 again and run it at 1.85 for a few weeks to see if it can burn in . then MAYBE< i can hit 2 ghz without a huge volt mod.
unfortunatly, the most aggressive timings for ram i can get is 2.5,2,5,3 4way, 1T, 8qw and ultra speeds in the bios. if i run ras to cas at its most agressive, 2, it dies. lowering it to be equal or larger than the cas delay was nessisary to get stable operation. but I will be getting some cas 2 geil ram soonish with luck, so i will be able to test a few things out here.
but wish me luck on hitting 2000 mhz.

okay, VERY stable now @ 1720 with a XP1600 "y" 0213

180 fsb

stock voltage

if anyone knows of a better setting than this with stock voltage, ill try it out. (reason i am asking is that my cooling isnt up to par )
volcano9
36 idle
43?load

it getsREAL bad as soon as i up the vcore (39idle 48load) and thats just @ what i had before
