is there any hope for me ??!!


Recommended Posts

ok dont all laugh out loud - i'm new to this game !! :roll:


I have an ECS Nforce250 A939 with a 3700 San Diego


I've just bought Twinx 2048-3200C2PT memory - I didnt do enough research into what I should by memory wise - and I'm hopeing someone can tell me if it is performing well or have really mis-purchsed...


I have gained approx 200 points on 3dmark05 over my old 2x512 set-up


I have 250x11 on the cpu and HT x3 - memory 166mhz - the read preamble and async latency both 6ns and timing set to 1T


all in BIOS



i then use clockgen to up the clocks to 3125.20 cpu 284.11 HTT memory 223.23


runs stable enough to pass any of the 3dmarks and all the latest games...



when i look at the timings on memory its 2.5-4-2-8 - 1T


i havent really had any sucess in changing any of the settings with A64 - I can get the system to work at 2-4-2-8 but clock gen wont look at it - and i cant take the CPU above 240 if the memory is set to run at 200Mhz in the BIOS.


I guess I'm stuck with this mix-matched set up as its my own fault for not reading up properly..so any help geting my set up run a bit tighter would be apprciated.. I guess a new m/b could be part of the solution but I need to stick with AGP as I can't afford to replace my nice x1950pro just now.. would the ECS KV2 lite or Abit UL8/AV8 improve things any - they both have an extra 1000MHZ on the FSB??




bit of a broad support question I know - but any help or tips mucho appriciatered
