FX53, Asus A8V and Geil PC4000 testing

Well, my FX-53 finally arrived after being on backorder since 7th August, and I am more than happy

Firstly, I threw in my Mushkin BH-5, but it craps out at 222 @ 2-2-2-6 due to the lack of vdimm on the board. So I threw in my Geil PC4000 (2.5-4-4-8) and threw it straight up to 250x8. Impressed to say the least. Stable as a rock and good memory bandwidth to boot. Once I work out my best clock speed at 250FSB, I will post benchies

Yeah, Venus 12. The LS is currently at PC Range and I should have a replacement soon-ish And yeah, no insane voltages just yet

Gotta work out some things with this 939 board. A few ioptions I am not used to seeing, and as a result, I can't seem to get over 2.5GHz

Thanks for the links eva, will give them a good read

BTW, here is a sandra mem @ 250x10, 2.5-4-4-8. This was with the LDT x 4x. With it set at 5x scores were actually lower by 30-40 points
Oh, also, the SuperPi 1M time is a surprise considering I am using 2.5-4-4-7. If I can get me some tighter timings at 250FSb, it should be able to achieve sub 30s

3rd screenie is Sandra buffered, same settings as the unbuffered test

I'm off to read those threads and see if this geil will run 2.5-3-3-6.

Ahh, my eyes... I wish people would believe in paragraphs when they use that much text

Thanks for the link, seeing as the only real difference between the Rev 2.0 and Rev 1.02 is the "Official support" for the locks and a WiFi module

BTW, this thing feels and seems alot faster.. Installed WinXP in 15 minutes including drivers
