so has anyone been able to run a 100 mhz fsb chip at 166? specifically a duron? if you keep clock speed near default or maybe even underclocked by multi can you get bus speeds that high?
i know the weakness has to be the chip cuz my system ran 166 with the xp.
I've just started really playing around with my 1G DURON, and contrary to what some others are saying, my experience with the DUORNs, both the Spitfire and the Morgan, is that they will run quite well at a high FSB.
I've had DURON 600's to over 1100MHz with the FSB [email protected]
on boards with the KT133A chipset as well as an FIC AD11 with the AMD 760 chipset.
AS I sit here, this machine is running happily with a Morgan core DURON [email protected]
with a 201MHz FSB. This is on an Epox 8KHA+ board with the KT266A chipset (BIOS v 8kal00) that utilizes a 3/4-memory divisor bringing the memory bus down to 151MHz. The CPU multiplier had to be lowered to 6X to achieve this.
My CPU temperature is in the mid 50's as reported by Sandra. I would like to get this down, but I have this machine under a desk in the knee-hole sharing the space with two other machines, all overclocked. (some re-modeling is going to be done around here when the weather breaks!)
My experience has also shown that the Morgans, like the XP's, don't seem to benefit from too much voltage. Some increase is still needed to get stability, but not the extremes that the T-BIRDs and Spitfires required. I'm running at the boards max of 1.85v with the memory voltage increased by 0.30v.
This machine is currently under 100% CPU load running SETI in the background.
I'll post the benches if you like.
I hope this helps.
