...I like making up problems for me to solve.

59xx bios guide, good times. Thanks again Jim.

On that subject Jimmor, what 'does' Nibitor do with 59xx timings? I never quite figured out those A B C D E letters and how they related to X-Bios editor Hex view..

And I'd never taken the time to look at your 3dmark03 score What's your overclock on that P4?
You obviously aren't getting your fair share of "real life" problems if you have the time and need to keep making up your own new headaches to resolve

The main thing to understand about NiBiTor timings, is that they are all Decimal representations of the hex values which are actually used in a bios.

And NiBiTors first problem is that it won't allow changing Latency value "A" (to best of 64 (or 40Hex)) unless all eight latency strings have same values. Where for example it will error with "timing is not unified" and refuse to let you make a change.

Also the timings "B to F" represent only the middle five values of the 28 bit timing string identified in my guide. Which means that NiBiTor currently does not allow for best performance changes to all timing values in the string !

My current CPU is a 3.2GHz P4 at 3.92Ghz, with mobo bus at 245MHz.
The more I know, the more I know I don't know

Intel P4 3.2 @ 3.85GHz (ASUS P4C800E-Deluxe)
BFG 6800GS (16x1,6vp) @ 300/430/1200.
