The Increased performance of running 200FSB or better more than makes up for the difference in loss of DC advantage. 2% to 6% difference IS a difference and closly approximates the cost increase for DC so that is a wash when OCing. There is no reason not to use DC except that it often limits your top OC fsb. It is definately excellent when running your sytem near or at stock speeds on all but two of AMD current CPUs.
    So for someone like me, who doesn't OC, it does make a reasonable difference... :) Nice to see you guys back again.

    Yeah. Climbski lives in reno, NV where the dew point is probably well below freezing. I tried using an a/c up here in RI where the dew point is usually in the 60's in the fall and got a bit of condensation buildup after 30 seconds. Definitely not a good thing.

    As far as the difference in performance gains between 166/200/227fsb, that was going to be my next test. Would it be 2.7% all the way around, or 15% at 166, 2.7% at 200, and 1.5% at 227?

    Unfortunately my system just isn't stable in single channel. I get random lockups at 217fsb with my PC3500 in single channel but can run 235ish in dual channel without a hitch. Go figure.

    My NF7-S manual states that supported memory is:

    3 DIMMs DDR200/266/333 (max 3GB)
    2 DIMMs DDR400 (max 2GB)

    Is this really correct? Anyone tried running three DDR400 modules?

    FX5900 - 3DMark2001 [20,566] - 3DMark2003 [7,281] - Aquamark3 [56,694]
    Ti4400 - 3DMark2001 [16,028]

    I've noticed with a fair few of the original nForce2 boards that they have limits on what DDR400 they support, both chip types and quantities, but I thought they had fixed this up with the newer chipset.. :confused:
