We're getting there!! The CPU seems sorted (thank you all...so far!!!!)

Now, see the pics, how do i get my memory to operate at 400mhz? I lowered the timings (read somewhere else while googling) and it booted to Windows XP fine...but the memory is now too slow. MUYA - will go away and lower the Voltage now...oops.

Edit - MAYA - will go and try those memory timings you suggested...

Pic 1 - CPU
Pic 2 - Memory
Pic 3 - Mobo

lol.. if only you had said you had upped the vcore :D

woulda made life a lot easier :cool:

Do also check your DRAM:FSB Ratio. Seems you have 5:4 which means if you fsb is at 200mhz the ram will run at 250Mhz! which will burn your memory out. So set that to 1:1 if you are running 200Mhz and your memory is 200mhz capable.

With nForce 2 mobo running memory synchronous to the fsb has the highest performance gains as opposed to running the memory asyncronous with the fsb.

On that mobo you will get better performance at something like 10-2-2-2- or 11-2-2-2 the Tras set to low on nforce duel channel boards has been covered mega times in all forums.. set your ram to 100% or 1:1 and it should be fine if you need to you could add a little voltage to the ram those sticks can handle 2.8 volts without a problem try stock vdimm first and if it is not stable add .1 and try again

I need 2.8 vdimm and 1.825 vcore to reach 210 x 11.5 if thats any help and I use 2.5 cas try maybe just for a test 9 - 3 - 3 -3 at 2.8 vdimm and see what gives also dont be afraid to give a little vcore even if 1.65 is default some mobo's dont deliver the proper volts .. also in passing what do you have for a PSU 12v rails and 5v rails the AMPS is what I am looking for

The 10 or 11 tras should not affect windows loading but 2 cas is tight 2.5 you have a better chance I have used cas 3 and tested and there really is not much of a difference in performance but there is in stablilty depending on the ram in use and again the PSU is very important here
