ok... a little better. I used the linked version of superPi this time and...

Memory:
Frequency: 167Mhz
FSB:Ram: 6:5
Cas# Latency: 2.5Clocks
Ras# to Cas# Delay: 3 Clocks
Ras# Precharge: 3 Clocks
Cycly Time(Tras): 7 Clocks

Should I change the memory timings?

Oylpann, open up your notepad and change the font, that might do the trick.

Rob, try setting the TRAS to 9, 10, or 11 with the Nforce2 chipset for a small performance boost. Also see if you can get the CAS to 2 and the other timings to 2.

Hmm... sorry for the post spam... I was looking at my screenshot and noticed something extremely odd... it's not the voltage of the CPU, which is read wrong. Look at how much memory it shows I have. That's a tad bit off.
I guess the program can't read the info from the AV8 correctly.

Well actually Ryn, I can get it up to about 2.65 rock stable at 1.65v but since I dont have agp/pci locks, I get video corruption in games.

It works fine at the desktop and while folding, but when i play games the video gets all screwy.

If only I had a socket 754 nforce 3 board, I would be able to take it to 2.7ghz most likely. :twisted:

I run my A64 at 2.5ghz all the time though. :wink:
