Default Re: Basic FX59xxx bios changes


I tried different configuration for ram timings. I settled for 03030205050009000F000C040103 2D /3d and throttle 312F3231B0E210B000000001656C.
The 0101010101000A0011000A010101 setting gave a higher 3d score but ran choppy I left the settings for 2D and 3D the same [2D 300/500; 3D 477/500] during testing. I mainly looked for a fps gain

I also tried a different driver [81.95 to 66, 70] because it gave a little extra in performance.
The last thing I have tried is changing the agp bus speeds. I have an nforce 2 mobo with locked agp bus speeds. But with clockgen I altered them to 75 [normal 66 MHz] and 82. Overall 75 gave the best result
I forgot I also tried lowering the voltage from 1, 29 to 1, 28/1, 27 but I stick to 1, 29 volt

It was a busy weekend LoL
