    NF7 owners

    For those running it overclocked : What FSB are you at ?, do you have any mod's ?, and what BIOS are you using ?

    Preferably anyone over the 200mhz range.

    400FSB (2x200) keeping both mobo and RAM in spec, no need to rock the boat as that FSB and bandwidth from Dual Channel RAM is more then enough. Not worth running things out of stock for tiny gains in my book. Besides if I keep to 400FSB it's perfectly safe to replace the awful crappy NB fan with a passive solution. I currently run my Barton XP2500+ (1.8ghz) at 2.0ghz undervolted to 1.55v to keep it cool and quiet whilst still achieving more than a 10% o/c. Sorry to be boring

    Currently at 230 * 10 in sync.
    Done the VDD mod today, can probably get close to the 240's with any luck.
    Need to do a Vdimm mod next, memory rated upto 3.1, board only does 2.9

    also 400fsb, i have one of the rev1.1s, so im over by 33mhz
    my rams also pc2700, upto pc3200 speeds, i cant get much further, so im winting for my w/c north bridge before i do any voltmods. im using 11x multi to give 2.2ghz
    i agree with austin, low latencys and dual chan for example dont make enuf diff to spend more money on, though i have dc and ram is at stock latency... so no money lost... and 200 is a nice round number
    cpu is at 1.83v though, but the niose made by my tt smartfan is quiet compared to the niose of my 2x7200rpm drives
    VDD mod is the chipset one? how did u do it, ive read about a way penciling a resistor by the agp slot, or sticking a 10k pot between one mosfet leg and ground... which is right?

    3.1v for mem!!! :O my samsung is rated 2.5+-0.2 according to the specs, got it at 2.67v, CAN i go higher without damaging? i got heatspreaders, but they had a negative effect.. (2.77 is next, unless i do vdimm mod)

    Re: NF7 owners

    For those running it overclocked : What FSB are you at ?, do you have any mod's ?, and what BIOS are you using ?
    Preferably anyone over the 200mhz range.
    Rev: 2.0, no mods, no vcore increase on chipset or ram.

    FSB: Had it up to 216 with some old 2700 cas 2.5 twinmos @ 2,3,3,6 ... It ran 24/7 at 213 /w jiuhb.

    Bios: The one that you posted a link to about 4-5 months ago, Agent

    Edit: Agressive cpu interface and ram in sinc - probably 3/3 rather than your recently touted 6/6.

    I spoke to somone the other day at Abit Trickle - they said they know about the 6/6 setting giving a few mhz more in some cases, but even they dont have a clue why
    They are posting it on their forums aswell now as the setting to use.

    I'm running 215 FSB with 10X multiplier. Kingston Hyper X PC 3500 at the 6/6 setting. The timing is 11-3-2-2. I'm using the latest Bios (19 I think) and the only mods I've done is to put on chipsinks, a Northpole Northbridge cooler, and a Zalman northbridge cooler on the southbridge.

    Here's my specs for now

    Amd 2500+ Barton Core
    FSB 216
    FSB/DRAM ratio 4/4 (430MHz)
    CPU Voltage 1.8
    Dram Voltage 2.8
    Chipset Voltage 1.7
    Agp Voltage 1.6

    Timings 11,4,4,2.5

    System has been running stable for about 1 week straight with intensive gaming and prim95,sissandra and 3dmark 05 benchmarks no problems yet. Just using cheap MarkeValue ram 2x256 dual chanel.

    I'm looking into purchacing at least one stick of 256 500Mhz ram and seeing if i can get the processor as close as possible to 2750 Mhz.

    So far my temps are 42 idle and as high as 54 on full load. I am also running an sapphire radeon 9600 atlantis 256Mb Oc to 435/202.5 as well and haven't changed the bios still using Abits bios but the latest version i believe it's 6A61BA1BC-27

    Also using air cooling but have dual fans on the processor both running around 4500 rpm with a duct connecting the fans. Alot quieter and more airflow over the cpu.
