Threaded View

Hello to everyone,

can someone point me to right direction on overclocking AMD Venice core
3200+ (2000MHz) with 2GB Kingston ram (2 modules from subject) on EPOX 9nda+

I saw on net that this RAM can go up to DDR450.. and i saw some post that it
is used at ddr436 (2.4GHz system) without any problems..

for 225 BUS it needs to be set at 3-3-3-7, 2.9V 1T.

I do not know what it means.. in beas Epox has:

DRAM configuration

Max Memclock (Mhz)  is set to 200 MHz and hopefully it can be changed,
1T/2T Memory timing is set to 1T (this is obviosly right place for 1T from
3-3-3-7, 2.9 1T)
CAS# latency (Tcl)    is set to 2.0
RAS# to CAS# delay (Trcd) is set to 2
Min RAS# active time (Tras) is set to 5
Row precharge time (Trp) is set to 2

does it mean that this current configuration is:

I would like to know how high can I go with this Epox mb, memory and Venice

Thank you!

I have an Epox 9NDA3+ coming in today from newegg. I did a bit of
reading before deciding to get this board for my ATI AGP 9800XT video
card. I will also be using a pair of Kingston KVR400/512R  512x2

Here are some of the reviews I read before I bought the Epox.

This should answer your memory questions

I have read of people running the Kingstom Value at 240FSB 1:1  with
relaxed timings.

This board seems to have a couple of quirks: 1. It forces DDR 333 when
4 DIMMs  are used. 2. It overclocks better with memory in sockets  3
and 4.

According to reviews, this board is capable of very high FSB speeds
(275 to 310). But like anything, your mileage may vary depending on
your CPU and RAM.

I would relax the memory timings and see what the CPU is capable of by
increasing FSB then work with lowering your memory timings until the
system is  stable.

hope this helps
