Earlier today, after work and I cashed in my paycheck to be more exact, I bought an AMD Athlon64 2800 and an GigaByte GA-K8NS Pro.

After fiddling around and running between systems, to burn drivers because the mobo cd was trash (Wouldnt read in ANY system I put it in), I am now OC'ing it.

So far I have it at 216 from 200 FSB. My memory seems to be stable at 352MHz (333MHz stock), which is something my old ABit NFS2 board couldn't do.

So far I am pleased with some of the benchmarks I am getting. Here's a few:

CPU: 1.94GHz
Mobo HTT: 2X 864MHz (1728MHz data rate)
CPU HTT: 2x 864MHz (1728MHz data rate)
Memory Bus Speed : 2x 176MHz (352MHz data rate)

SiS Sandra CPU:
Dhrystone ALU : 8943MIPS
Whetstone FPU : 3048MFLOPS
Whetstone iSSE2 : 4005MFLOPS

SiS Sandra Memory:
RAM Bandwidth Int Buff'd iSSE2 : 2695MB/s
RAM Bandwidth Float Buff'd iSSE2 : 2697MB/s

Next pay check I'm gonna invest in getting another PC3200 of 256MB so I can finally use that one I bought a few months ago and get rid of another bottleneck.

You don't need Dual Channel memory for Socket 754 Athlon 64s, throw that PC3200 in there and see what it can really do.

yeah, I see 3200+ speeds in your future, if you can keep it cool enough

The only problem is that stick of 3200 is 256MB. Else I would throw it in there.
I always buy my memory in sticks of two. That's how I was raised.


I hope to beat a 3200. I almost bought the 3500 but I didnt have the extra 110$.

Congrats on going the A64 way route. You're not too far off from the 3200+, If temps hold you back when you go higher, slap an XP 90/120 on and you'll be set.

Ok. I've reached my targeted goal, so Im gonna stop and post some figures.

SiSoftware Sandra
CPU Benchmark Results:
Dhrystone ALU : 10187MIPS
Whetstone FPU : 3499MFLOPS
Whetstone iSSE2 : 4562MFLOPS

Memory Benchmark Results:
RAM Bandwidth Int Buff'd iSSE2 : 3070MB/s
RAM Bandwidth Float Buff'd iSSE2 : 3068MB/s

Logical/Chipset 2 Memory Banks:
Bank 0 : 256MB DDR-SDRAM 2.5-3-3-3CL 1CMD
Bank 2 : 256MB DDR-SDRAM 2.5-3-3-3CL 1CMD
Channels : 1
Speed : 2x 201MHz (402MHz data rate)
Width : 64-bit
Maximum Memory Bus Bandwidth : 3216MB/s (estimated)

FSB: 246
CPU: 2.214GHz

Chipset 1 (mobo)
Model : Nvidia Corp ??? (00E1)
Front Side Bus Speed : 2x 984MHz (1968MHz data rate)
In/Out Width : 16-bit / 16-bit
Maximum Bus Bandwidth : 7872MB/s (estimated)

Chipset 2 (cpu)
Model : Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) Athlon 64 / Opteron HyperTransport Technology Configuration
Front Side Bus Speed : 2x 984MHz (1968MHz data rate)
In/Out Width : 16-bit / 16-bit
Maximum Bus Bandwidth : 7872MB/s (estimated)

So there they are. Tonight Im gonna do a burn in test with Prime95 and see if she truely holds. Temps seem to be fine, but wont know till the burn in. Idle is around 29C and the highest I've seen it at when under load is near 43C. Gonna eventually get a better HSF.

Was foolin around with the FSB a little more and pushed it to 250x9. Then I went to do a SuperPI calculation to see what my times were. It finished in 40 seconds! at 246x9 it finished in 43.
