howdy all,

Well as the heading might suggest some basic OC'ing for a friend of mine.

We just put his system together tonight and from the get go all has been well.

He unfortunately had bought his board before nforce2 came out but hey not bad for first try...

My recent overclocking has been with Intel so I have been out of tweaking any AMD systems...

Asus A7v333
Bios version 15...
vcore @ 1.75(board fluctuates up to 1.77-1.78)
ram @ default for now
1:1 ratio
166Mhz bus with 33Mhz PCI
Kingston Hyperx pc-2700 c2

Booted first time...
Installed winXP and the likes.....
He still needs to run some Prime95 etc.... but no lock-ups so far...
He is happy considering his last system was a P166(I think)...

Chip is AXDA2100DUT3C
JIUHB 0308VPMW
Idles 35-37 using Volcano medium fan settings and some thermal paste, as I didn't have ac3 with me, (yes I know I know.... hehe)

Its a pity their is no PCI lock etc.. as I believe he could go higher...
Anyway he's happy and thats what counts .....:D

Another thought, with a different mobo say an Nforce2 how high could he go....

He is currently at 166x13 or 2166Mhz up from 1733Mhz....:)

He doesn't need a NF2 mobo to find out how high he can get his chip to.

With his A7V333, how high he can get the XP2100 of his depends on his CPU, PSU, Cooling and RAM. Unfortunately the tbred and KT333 mobos aren't 100% compatible and can't run at really high FSB speeds. The highest I've been able to is 192fsb, while others can't get past the upper 180FSB range. If he wants to max out his cpu, he'll need to increase his multi and work with FSB speeds around 167mhz to around 180mhz. We don't need a NForce 2 mobo to max out the cpu. I haven't seen many XP2100 tbred b/Nforce2 mobo combinations on air that have gotten over 2600mhz. But they will let you run at FSB speeds over 200mhz.

Thanks the info will sure help.....

I guess the main reason to go with Nforce2 is being able to lock pci/agp..... :)
