Hey OCers,

Thanks to Rajesh_K I've found the combination that works with the ASUS K8V Deluxe. Popular opinion holds that you can't get past 220fsb with this mobo and a A64 3200+ ClawHammer. Well these settings work for me and appearantly for Rajesh_K also. I'm currently running 230fsb and just scored a 4504 using pcmark04. I've run several stability tests and all previously failed tests are now passing with flying colors. If you need the settings just drop me a line. But remember the credit goes to Mr. Rajesh_K. If all goes well for the next couple of days with these settings I'll be spending my mobo money on extra ram and a new cooler. It appears that this setup works well without the AGP/PCI lock.

Best Regards,

My sincerest apologies! I just found a review that ran the K8V Deluxe at 225 stable and benchmarked...I'm kind of confused now! I was under the impression it had neither the PCI nor AGP locks, but apparently it has a secondary PCI lock, (whatever that means) and it has to be that the AGP is tied to the RAM frequency.

NOW, the only way they made it to 230 was a memory ratio...but even being the case...thats SWEET! Maybe I just need to upgrade my cooling now!

Again, Brian, and Rajesh K...I apologize deeply for having been mistaken.

Thank you,

but to let you guys know, I've been doing some testing on my system, and I have found that lowering the HTT frequency has made it possible to reach higher slightly stable speeds, Maxed was 2.37GHz, although, when trying to run 3dmark03 Video crapped out. But I have found it has stabilized my 2.31 GHZ speed. I suppose I should try to lower to 400MHZ instead of just to 600MHZ HTT maybe that will make the difference, I haven't tried fidling with the 16bit or 8 bit settings yet.

And another thought I had, was what if you set your CPU speed to 1800MHZ, and then fiddle with OC'ing?

Oh, and I have noticed, that without OC'ing my vid card, I am attaining higher FPS with a higher clock speed, can anyone shed light on why this is?

Anyways, right now I am running:

  • FSB 230-235
  • 1.7V CPU (at 235 u may need to goto 1.725)
  • DDR @ 2.8 (and ram limited to 400 @ cas 3)
  • AGP 1.5
  • Vlink 2.6
  • Auto
HTT is set to 16 Bit's both way at 600MHZ

Hope this helps you guys.
