OCing 2800+ on A7N8X-D


K

Kevin Wagner

Hey folks, I just bought myself some kickass corsair TWINX 3200XL (2x512)
ram for my 2800+ (barton) rig and plan to do some OCing. Reading reviews I
found out that this ram is capable of 2-2-2-5 timings all the way to
224MHz!! Now realistically, how high could I get my bus speed? Right now
i'm running 10.5x205 = 2153MHz with full stability. I haven't tried any
higher now that my temps are in the low 50C's. The only voltage I touched
was the DDR voltage and I put it from 2.6 to 2.7V. I plan on buying a
coolermaster aero 7 lite. Whats the highest bus speed that some of you guys
have acheived? Could I go higher if I slowly increased the vcore? I'm a
little new at this. Any input welcome. Here are the specs that matter:

Asus A7N8X Deluxe 2.0 bios 1006
2x512 twinx 3200XL
Barton 2800+ Stock cooler but getting aero 7 lite soon
350W Enermax PSU

Thanks

I've heard guys getting as high as 220 on some of the dlx boards, my
non-dlx does 210 with Corsair 3200LL at 2.6V (2-2-2-6) no prob, got a
Barton 2800+(week 8 2003), @ 3200+ (200x11) it needs 1.675v to be
stable, new stepping should do better.

I wouldn't worry too much about the CPU temp, max is 85C, mine peeks
around 60-65C(depending on room temp) @ 2315Mhz (210x11) with a Aeroflow
TMD hs/fan, been running for 14 months.

I you want more bandwidth try 2-2-2-11
Good luck,
Ed
