Highest I have tried is 220 but it want too stable. Might be more stable if I make the ram timings less aggressive and increase the ram voltage.

I have 11X212 with 1GB of TwinMOS PC3700 @2.9V and CAS2 - runs very stable...:) Have tried reducing the RAM settings though still doesn't boot and upping the FSB though it still won't boot to Windows. Have had the XP2400 booting to windows at over 2.4GHz though not stable at lower FSB!?!?... I'll never complain of too many BIOS settings though must find more time to experiment!

Highest I've gotten is 225. However, at this speed the onboard LAN craps out after a while.. planning to volt mod the northbridge later

is it common for the onboard lan to crap out at high FSB? I have been having problems with my connection and wasnt sure if it was the onboard lan or my cable modem....????

I've had a heatsink on it even before I put the board in my case :) It's nice and cool.

200 because I only have cheap but stable Samsung PC3200 DDR400 and I don't want to hassle with it for only a percent or two higher score.

I just set up an NF7-S, Rev. 2.0 and with 512 MB Corsair XMS3500 C2 I had been running in a Pentium4 rig. I have got it running at 225 fsb, 2.8 VDIMM at 2-2-2-5 timings. It won't do 3DMark2003 at 228+, even at 2.9 VDIMM, but I'm pretty happy so far. The XP2100+ I am running maxes out at 2415 mhz at 1.9 volts. I drop the ram down to 210 fsb for everyday use, at 2.6 (2.7?) VDIMM.

I've had it at DDR472, 2-2-2-5 at 3.1 volts on a P4 board so this is pretty good dual purpose ram.

I notice at 2.8 VDIMM on the NF7-S it is actually 2.96, correct?

I have my XP2100+ maxed out now at 220x11.0 or 2410 mhz, 2-2-2-5, 2.8 VDIMM, 1.6 VCC (Northbridge?), 1.5 VAGP, and 1.87 actual VCORE. I'm not willing to go higher on the VCORE so forget about 2500 mhz. Upping the VCC or VAGP gets me no higher on the fsb. I believe the ram can do 225 fsb if the CPU wasn't so maxed out. Again, I am running a single 512 MB stick of Corsair XMS3500 C2.

I am totally stable here as I've passed a 28' SuperPI run. My benches: 3DMark2001 = 17303, 3DMark2003 = 5303, 3DMark2000 = 19944. Stress temps are 46 C as I am running an insane 5800 rpm 80 mm fan on my Alpha 8045. I am very very impressed with these benches, as to get the same scores on a P4 rig I have to run around 3200-3300 mhz, 180 fsb, and a Granite Bay DC board at 2-2-2-5. I am running a 9700 Pro at 375/335.

I have only been running Athlons for two weeks now and the only other board I tried was a K7RA-133R, so this NF7-S, 2.0 is very impressive, considering a newbie can get this far on an unmodded board and on air. I haven't even touched the stock Northbridge fan. I wil be putting the same CPU in an 8RDA+ and it will be interesting comparing boards.

I have gotten my NF7-S 1.2 to 145fsb at 1.7 volts. The only way I can get it to post at that speed though is to relax the ram out of sync and it has to be lower then around 350. Anything higher then around 112 is not stable, could be cpu, or ram. I'm using 3200 samsung. I lapped the northbridge and am using a Zalman Chipset cooler w/40mm fan. Southbridge has a heatsink also no fan.
