Abit IC7-G

Kagato, I see you run the same board I do. PM me as I have a couple of 'q's reagarding your BIOS setup. Thanks.

Why not ask them in here and share the knowledge...

We don't need no stinkin' knowledge in here!

What settings in particular?

It's not polite to ask one how to store pron on the ROM


Posted by Mizzouri on 02-22-2004 11:37 PM:

For starters:

2.8GHz 800fsb
1GB Mushkin PC3500
Abit IC7-G
Nvidia 5900 128MB
WD 10,000rpm hd

I built a nearly identical system for a friend though he has the ATI 9800 AIW. Both cpus can clock easily to 225MHz bus but at this point I have to turn the ram down from Streetracer to normal. At 220MHz I can run in turbo. The biggest question I have is how in the heck can I get the machine to run the AGP bus to run higher than 66MHz? I know 'how' to do it, it's just that the system won't boot. This is a new one to me as it has always been really easy to get the AGP/PCI bus to clock considerbaly higher, even on crappy hardware. This holds true when the system is barely clocked at all (205MHz). Any sage advice or general tips for this board would be nice. Thanks!

Typically you don't want to be running the AGP bus, and more importantly PCI, beyond 66MHz/33MHz range - ATI's are especially picky about this any more. Some folks have gotten away with around 72MHz, but that is in some extreme overclocking (300MHz +) with a huge array of voltage mods and mosfet cooling changes . Anything beyond 69Mhz though is just asking for instability and other issues. The MAXII's are known to undervolt on AGP, so it may help bumping that up to like 1.6V.

To get any decent overclocks on memory, you'll have to turn off the GAT options and hardset them, along with memory timings. I know on the GAT, first three of mine are set to AUTO, and the last two are Disabled. With your PC3500 memory, I would think you'd be able to run 1:1 to around the 230-240MHz mark, not 100% though, I've only worked with PC3200 and PC4000+ so I'm not sure where a 3500's "max limit" is before you'd have to start using a 3:2 or 5:4 divider.

Oh, and I run my memory timings at 3-4-4-8 @ ~266MHz ...

Cool. I see that I'm just about maxed then already. Thanks for your input.


Posted by Kagato on 02-25-2004 04:26 PM:

I could likely push farther with some better memory or moving from 1:1, but the IC7's are known to have issues with using the dividers (3:2 and 5:4) above the 260MHz range. I'd like to get some of the OCZ PC4200 EL memory and see what she can do.

Yup, good fast memory seems to be the limiting point for the P4s. I'm extremely satisfied with this new machine.
