Hey people!
Iīve been doinī some OCing on my AGOIA AXP and these r the results....
Of course itīs not stable at all (I can boot normally into windows and browse the net, and do everything but gaming or benchmarking, 3dmark 2001SE would crash into my desktop everytime i tried to start benchmarking) but iīm happy with it since I donīt have any fancy cooling and the puppy stays at or below 38 degrees Celsius (100 Fahrenheit). I also have the RAM at CAS 2.5 with Ultra timings and Command 1T (whatever it means).
jejejj :flames:

Not a bad effort at all. :thumb:
Maybe if ya knock that Command rate back to 2T that just may solve ya stability probs. ;)

Thanx Wiggo!
BTW, What is command rate?

2T is the norm as not much memory can make use of the 1T command rate. You'd probably get a higher FSB with 2T as well. ;)

THANX A LOT WIGGO!!!!!!!!!!
Just turning off command rate 1T and tuning down the mem timings to normal got me trough 3dmark without a glitch!, so, with the AXp locked (10x166) at 1.67 Ghz (2000+) and my videocard up to 200/450, i got the score below......
not bad, huh?
BTW, my mobo doesnt support 166 fsb so iīm running the PCI and AGP slots quite outta specs already... and my modem and tv capture card arenīt so good so iīm afraid to screw them... thatīs why i dont turn up the FSB more... but iīl unlock the puppy and tell ya what then...

I'm glad to be of help to ya and ya happy with the results. :thumb:

I really would've thought that MSI would support the 166MHz AGP/PCI divider but then that's probably why I like working with EPoX boards. :smokin:
