A64 500Mhz HTT barrier broken on DFI LP UT NF4 SLI-D@ 2005/03/06
divider. After a myriad of benches were run to determine stability and repeatability, ClockGen was pushed to it's limit of 500MhzHTT....this time necessitating the use of the 100 divider which brought the ram in running at 250Mhz, or DDR500. Multiple benches were run including 3DMark '03 and '05, Hexus PiFast, Aquamark and SiSoft Sandra memory benches in the most stable fashion.
His only wish was that the the clock generator could be pushed higher
All runs were achieved on air, and 3D runs were done with a pair of nVidia 6600GT's running in SLI mode at their stock speed of 550/1100. The board is as recieved from DFI (Thank you Vivian Lien and OPPAINTER) with no modications. Its running the as shipped 1/25/05 bios and the only deviation was the removal of the nForce4 chipsets heatsink fan for cleanup and an application of Arctic Silver 5.
In the near future MrIcee will be sporting a custom built phase change CPU cooling arrangement, and is hoping to take the little Winchester to the next level when he'll be able to utilize higher multipliers to go with the extraordinary HTT speeds.
