I don't think tighter that 2-2-2-5 is actually possible. Sure, it can be set, but I don't think it exists. I did this a few years ago, set to 2-0-0-0-0 in the BIOS. CPU-Z didn't like it which is why I also had Everest open but it worked. It was no faster in any benchmarks that 2-2-2-5 2T.



I also did 1.5-2-2-5 1T which was no faster than 2-2-2-5 1T frown.gif

On a slightly different note, I was wondering if anyone here has any of those 2G or 4G sticks that they couldn't get to work. I have a A8R32-MVP deluxe (ATI version of the board that is proven to work at least with 8gigs) and the bios says it has the option for ECC. I was wanting to give it a go and figured i would offer to pay shipping plus a litte or something if anyone was stuck with some that wouldn't work for them.

What GPU limitations do our boards face? And I'm not just referring to PCI-E 1.1, I mean Vmem too. My s939 is setup as a HTPC, running Win7 64-bit amazingly well. System memory is topped at 8Gb for me (and I'm good with this) but what about a 4 to 8GB vmem GPU? For giggles, if I were to bench my future RX480 in the s939, would 8GB vmem be an issue?

Remember, these boards were made during a time when 2GB RAM was decent, and 4GB was high end. GPUs of the era were 512 to 896MB (yeah, thats a thing, lol) I even ran a 1.5GB GTX 580 in my board for the lolz. (A 580 that WAS going to be a hand me down until I abandoned water in my machine.)

Would the board start acting in unknown, unforeseen ways if we were to go 16GB RAM and an 8GB RX480. Think the s939 would even boot on 24GB of accessible RAM on the machine.

Lol 896MB as in a GTX 260? That's actually beyond the time frame these boards were produced. Really the 8800GTX/ 2900XT time frame was the final hour for most people still running 939 as their primary rigs.
I remember when the big leap from 7 series to 8 series came and the realization of cpu bottleneck on 8800GTS and above on s939 when compared to the C2D.

Nah......I'll not be devoting any more time to this foolishness than I already have. You may be working at 'hardware' level, but what you want done is at 'coding' level for something that doesn't exist. You can't put the cart before the horse.

Not to be rude, but it reminds me of kids who know it all, use vagueness, and use 'broad terms'.

I recall using a gtx 560 and a 650 ti on my dfi cfx3200 but I can't comment on the memory capacity issues.

Do we know for sur the Asus a8n series can do 8+ because hardware (I think I heard more wires), or could it be bios?

Guys, found some of the 4GB DDR1 on eBay for cheapskates... $4 a dimm. Should I get 4? The results weren't great from seaFs and Herm's experience... Of course, I'm completely content with DDR400 spec at 3Ghz, even at CL3 is no biggie for me. I'm a stability guy for my HTPC, but 16GB RAM can open some doors. 8GB RAM Disk anyone?

Not to mention the new Intel 520 SSD I just inherited. Think its faster than my old Crucial M4?

Hello SwishaMane,

I don't know for seaFs, but for me, I'm quite happy of how my old computer is still able to do with this amount of RAM.

If I'm no so active right now, it's because, after more than 10 years of daily use, the chipset southbridge on my A8N32-SLI is slowly dying (integrated ethernet, one of the two legacy IDE plug, and last week, all four sata are out of order). So I'm using the backups the A8N32 provide: SiI3132 internal SATA port to boot (and no more CDROM), and the Marvell Yukon for Ethernet link to the Intenet).

While checking the system, I came across... a dying 480W power supply that can't provide required voltages anymore (2.9v to the 3.3v line... The BIOS setup hardware monitor was showing red lines !). I'm running actually with a small 330W spare PSU with way better voltages stability, but that seems to have a random short-circuit ont the 'power on/off' wire.
Low power: basic usage only... well, that is when I succeed to boot. (Even touching the case might have the same effect as holding the power button continuously pressed : brutal power off).

New modular PSU is on the way, and another A8N32 should come too (thanks to Ebay !).

I'm using VSuite Ramdisk (free edition) for WinXp. Quite fast, able to use hidden memory (usefull when switching to the non PAE patched Microsoft Kernel), but this one seems to max out at 4Gb... But really, as temp directory, and holding a few softwares on it, 4Gb is quite big...

Negociated Sata speed should be what will have the best impact on speed, I think... With a Sata-2 controller, if neither the SSD goes back to Sata-1 (I've read that might happen on old hardware...), they should operate at nearly same speed...

At Sata-1 speed, only 150MB/s will be available... Quite slow for device designed to way more bandwidth...

Ah, here, as read speed seems in the same range, looks like the intel is a bit faster on write tests : 500MB/s (on a sata2, will be capped at 300MB/s max) as M4 is 175MB/s (128GB) or 260MB/s (256Gb/512Gb)...
