Thanks for that .. if I understand correctly, the BIOS allows 550 but on your system you got to 310 1T?

With the mem on a divider are you able to get higher than 310? As you can see I am seeking something that will do at least 360 preferable more as my current MB can do 395x9, at least in memtest anyway

well seeing as this is my first amd board, and I have no other amd procs, and my 4400 is uncooperative at lower multipliers (boots fine but fails dual prime) I haven't really pushed it yet past 310x9 @ 2.5-4-4-7 1t with geil one 2x512.

The option in the bios goes from 200 to 550, and my max fsb that I am willing to do on air cooling is 310X9 2790mhz, anything more requires too uch voltage for my current cooling.

If you really need me to, I could try a 6x400 run at 3/4 divider to see if geil one will run @ddr600 1t, and run a super pi for you... let me know

edit:

did a run at 6x 400fsb, 2x and 2.5x ht multi, 3/4 and 1/2 mem dividers and would not finish loading windows, probably my proc and not the board though.

i found a review of high htt and this board though here http://www.anandtech.com/mb/showdoc.aspx?i=2620&p=11

sorry I cant be of more help but I dont have an opterown and phase change lol, but if I can answer more mundane questions....

Thanks for the effort there ... I have previously read that review and while the author is respected, I am seeking others who also have the MB and able to replicate similar results.

So at 6x400 will it run memtest?... agree CPU / Mem timings maybe a matter here .. just would like to know that more of these are able to run higher than 345 1T....

Another thing if you can get some TCCD will it run 1T at DDR600+?

ncsa, the highest I was able to get on the Expert motherboard was 330 MHz. I think it is the processor that is holding the system back however, with my 3500+ NewCastle I hit 370 MHz.

Xavier1421 the Expert is easier to use than the older NF4 SLI-DR and you'll be very happy with it for sure! deathdispenser thanks for the link, that is awesome to see (although I think Anandtech might have gotten a "special" board).

One thing I noticed however is that the Expert clock for clock is slower than the older DFI LANParty NF4 SLI-DR when using low latency memory. With the setup the same (aside from the motherboard of course) and identical memory timings, my system is about 0.5 seconds slower in SuperPi 1M and 5-10 seconds slower in SuperPi 32m test and my 3DMark scores have fallen about 3%.

I have a suspicision that the BIOS' available for the Expert are tuned for high speed memory, not low latency since performance is similar to what I got with my old board using the 623/704 BIOS' (I was using the 510 tweaked for low latency with my old board). Patiently waiting for a low latency bios, hopefully that will bring performance back up.

just tried 6x400 again and also 7x350 with all appropriate ht multi's, mem dividers , timings and maybe even a little excessive voltage for clock speed cause I was getting frustrated ...

I think its my mem controller during post in pci listing section, it was glitching funny where it lists the memory controller, funny I never even noticed it there though. Would not finish post, would not pass mem test.

I have a feeling the mem controller in this chip doesn't like dividers, its a good thing that it likes 10x multi and voltage though lol.

Sorry, I cant prove more useful, but maybe I could pirate a single core from a friend for some mem test runs this weekend maybe

Thanks for checking these out ... just to confirm that the 330/370 were all at 1T ... I am guessing so as if it was 2T then the Pi runs would be >0.5 difference.

One thing I'm worried about is the chipset fan. I heard that longer graphics cards in the second PCIe slot will come in contact with the fan. Does the fan make a really weird noise when the card is in contact with it? I'm worried because I have 2 Geforce 6800GT's and I might be upgrading to this board soon.

My GTO² sits directly over the fan, very close to touching it. I really can't use any different heatsink, because I need such a low-profile one. So yes, it does.

The stock chipset fan is short enough that the fan would operate just under the videocards, you do not have to worry about videocards coming in contact with the stock cooler. If you were to swap the stock cooler out for something else then you might have a problem depending on what you use but that will be an issue on all NF4 SLI motherboards.

My X850 XT PE extends over the stock heatsink and it does not generate any abnormal noise. You have nothing to worry about if you go wtih two GeForce 6800GTs.
