I have 2 sticks of 512mb PC3200(Budget and stock at 3-3-3-8) running in dual channel mode with 2.5-3-3-6 timings. Is that good? I only get 54s in Super PI with a XP 2500+ oced by multi to 12.5 x 166. Will not runn stable at 11 x 200 with my nf2 board for some reason.

Well, have you tried bumping the vdimm up and trying DDR400 again? Don't increase more than .1 volts at a time.

My voltage setting only has values of 2.5, 2.6, 2.7 and By SPD. I also have my divider running 5:6 allowing my cpu at 333 mhz and my RAM at 200 mhz.

I have the same problem, but my multiplier is locked. I can't get my Barton run in 11x200, because of the ram (I suppose),I reached only 185 stable, even in timings by SPD (2.5-4-4-7)
I know thah with this mainboard Barton can run over 200MHz FSB without problems.

You could try 10 x 200 for 2.0 ghz and utilize the full memory speed. I had the same XP 2500+ Barton running 11 x 200 on a Gigabyte GA7S748-L (SiS chipset) but yet can not get to 11 x 200 on this nforce2 board for nothing. Even with tweaking all the vdimm and vcore.

A locked multiplyer is no big deal.

Couldn't you just up your HTT and use a divider to make sure your ram doesn't go past it's stable limit?

To give you something to compare to: I have 2 pairs of mixed matched 512 sticks (4x512) running in 2T mode at 2.5-3-3-5 around 215mhz-220mhz.

One pair is kingstone valueram and the other is a no name brand.

What's funny is I have this ram running at lower timings then the spd's shows AND I have it at 215-220mhz stable instead of the rated 200mhz.

I think your on track.

After last night I maxed out at 10.5 x 200 with PC3200 running 2.5-3-3-6 in Dual Channel mode. Allowing my XP 2500+ to run at 2100 mhz. This pisses me off considering I was able to run the same CPU with the same RAM timings @11 x 200 on a SiS748 chipset.

I have been to Bulgaria back in 92 or 93. I was in the US Navy. I really can't remember the town (Burgas...I think) but it was on the Black Sea. We also went to Constanta, Romania. Very nice people.

Dude.....he is runnin an AMD,there is no HTT or divider......
....but,if you run the ram at 2.7volts,run at 200fsb and 10.5 multi, set the ram "ratio" to 1:1,or even spd....and it should boot up,but make sure the reset jumper on that MSI is in the "user defined" position or it will boot up holding the defaults and triing to load the adjustments causing system instability..(trust me...MSI NF2 board and athlon equals speed.)...BTW...good ram timings are loose where they need to be and tight where they need to be,mine are 2.5,3,3,12 at 410mhz.

), maybe that's the problem. Tkank you guys for the help.
Dont try to run the higher multi,if you can get away with dropping it to 10.5 you will gain better performance by having a higher fsb not a higher multi. Leave everything the same as it is right now but run your CPU at 10.5multiX200fsb,and if you want...raise the CPU core voltage by one step.Its a barton....it WILL overclock quite high.


P.S. thats a bit high for a Barton on the Vcore!
Im at 1.65/1.67 at atm.

Are you baked out of your mind?

Here I am adjusting my HTT(To 260) and my ram divider (ratio of 2/1.66) to achieve a 2.6ghz overclock from a 2.0ghz and this guy is telling me these things don't exists cause I'm running AMD.


And your RAM timing are sauce btw.
I can get 420mhz out of 4x512 of mixed match cheap stuff at 2.5-3-3-5.

Again, a locked multi is NO BIG DEAL.
You can just drop your RAM divider, drop you multi and bump up your HTT to higher levels then normal to make up difference.
