Default I LOVE this 8RDA+!! And the tcb3 PC2700 just keeps impressing me...

Heh, I didn't think this rev 1.1 had the bawlz to do it...
I didn't think this JUICB 1700+ had the bawlz to do it...
I didn't think this samsung tcb3 PC2700 had the bawlz to do it...



My other 2700 tcb3 stick is being borrowed right now, so I'm surviving in single channel mode, but still, this is nice!!

I'm runnnin @ 2.05ghz, 215fsb... not bad for an all-air setup, IMO...

Only glaring deficiency is the fact that my 18.2 10k SCSI's are saddled with a 29160, not a RAID controller... maybe God will smile on me soon and plop a SCSI RAID controller in my lap...

Dang, gettin a kt266a to 189fsb was fun and all, but this... this is a freakin punchy setup for the minimal amount of cash I've spent!!

... A barton's on the way... so I'm sure I'll be even happier soon...

here's my 205fsb with your timings (remember, me ghots (one) 256mb chip in right now...



I think the samsung tcb3 is not really meant to be in the same class as that TwinMOS stuff, but IMO it does pretty good...

...and does CPU-Z report voltages correctly?

It's tellin me that I'm runnin @ like 1.585v... I have it set to ~1.8 in BIOS... maybe CPU-Z just lists the *supposed to be* stock voltage??

ok, cool, I can boot with the slightly tighter timings @ 215... I don't get much of a boost though, and I still can't obtain the output of that twinMOS memory...

I just tried again but in Single channel mode.

As for the voltage, CPU-Z reads directly from your BIOS so your CPU may not infact be running at 1.8v check your helth settings in your BIOS. My board seems to over volt 1.8v = 1.85v to bad it fluxuates to much to be good jumps from 1.75 ~ 1.85v all the time this is why my overclocking is so limited

It seems the voltages are really jumpy on a lot of nforce2 boards. I know I have watched my Soltek FRN2-L, with the Soltek system utility go from 1.75 to 1.85 too. Even when I had teh Vcore set to 1.85 it spiked up to 1.95 sometime.

Talking Re: I LOVE this 8RDA+!! And the tcb3 PC2700 just keeps impressing me...

CPU-Z reads the vdd voltage as the CPU voltage. The 1.585v you're seeing is vdd.

8RDA+/1700+ power:

Default Re: I LOVE this 8RDA+!! And the tcb3 PC2700 just keeps impressing me...

holy crap!!

Well, my 8RDA+ is goin into the GF's rig now...

It'll be matched with:

- the 2x256mb tcb3
- a 9700P
- a 40gb/8mb cache WD400
- another Barton 2500

...My new primary rig is as follows:

- Gigabyte GA-7N400-L1 with modded bios
- 2x512mb Geil Golden Dragon
- My 5900SE
- a 40gb/8mb cache WD400
- a 2500 now, but a mobile 2400 will soon take its place...

the 8RDA has served me well, and will make a good base for a system I can LEAVE ALONE for a year... (no mo fiddlin with the GF's PC!! :P:P)
