In my TH7 II , I had 256Mo of Kingston RDRAM (45ns) that would not go above 960 (120fsbx4 or 160x3 ) so i decided to try the new Samsung (40ns) (2x128Mo ) to see , and i could not believe it ,
i could raise fsb till 146 keeping the multiplier at 4 ,getting so PC 1160 with stock DGRC! I had hesitated to buy PC1066 but it was too expensive and i have read it would not work at x3 , I am glad i got the PC800 !

Wow!! 584MHz DRCGs on a TH7II. Do you know what DRCGs they are (manufacturer, part #)? Pretty impressive OC for the PC800 too - no wonder you're pleased!!:)

Great system dankal!
Can you let us know which BIOS you are using and what setting you have for AGPCLK/CPUCLK(AGP Clock)? I've tried 144 FSB with the FIXED setting, but the system usually locks up when playing games.

Waja, i dont use the fix option when possible because of boot problem and it's more stable with dividers . My setting are actually
fsb144 with divider @2/4 ,so agp is @72 and pci 36 which is perfectly stable .
Coz , i can't unfortunatly tell you the drgc type as i tried to see it months ago while the great thread on that topic was on ,but even with magnifying glass the marks on them are invisible .All i know is that i got this board 14 months ago so they are not of the new type that is rated for 600Mhz

I am using the Samsung 40ns RDRAM, I think that I am going to see what I can get it up to now. I have been holding back from pushing it to the max.

Iv'e got the drcgs but havn't put them in yet. Even so theth7II has been one of the best boards ever.
In sandra it said that the board could be upgraded to past 4.0 gig
I wouldn't doubt it

I've got aTH7II-R w/ a P4 1.6A running at 140fsb (2.24 Ghz); Rdram bus @ 400; V-core @ Default (1.46 in BIOS) Vga @ 2/4 & STOCK Cooling. Memory is Samsung PC800. Bios is Mr. Naturals 40B. I only have the cold boot problem when I have had the system unplugged. I've been running it like this for a couple of months now with no problems except a GF3 Ti200 that died ( look here ). I'm very pleased with this setup. Merry Christmas! -Dave

Yep, for a motherboard that's been around almost 1-1/2 years, our TH7-II can still kick some hinny. My Samsung PC800 is almost a year old, but it'll do 133 FSB with 4X (1066 MHz). The newer stuff obviously does even better.
