Just thought it would be nice to see what the TZ members have their NF2 boards set at and if they are happy with the NF2....
My rig Abit NF7-S Rev 2.0
XP 2400 10.5x @210 fsb, vcore 1.75, 2205mhz
2x512 Crucial PC3200 Dual Channel @210fsb 2.7volts
ram timing 11-3-3-2.5
My xp2400 is at the limit and for some reason it gets unstable at a higher vcore so 1.75 it is The Abit Rev 2.0 overvolts the ram to 2.7 so even if I set it at 2.5 or 2.6 it's still 2.7, that's ok because 2.7 is a fine volt for ram this is not the case with the Rev 1.2 board...
In Test with the INTEL P4 boards the Crucial PC 3200 ran @400fsb with the timing (SPD is 8-3-3-3) of 5-2-2-2 and it was some of the best ram for the P4. This is not the case in the NF2 as the Crucial won't even post at CAS2, it would blow my bios to pieces if I tried & this has been reported by other Crucial users as well it runs great @CAS2.5
Overall I'm very happy with this setup and other than the problems I had getting ram to run at 400+fsb the system is fast, stable & trouble free!
Sons rig Abit NF7-S Rev 1.2
XP 2100 12.5x @180fsb, vcore 1.75, 2250mhz
2x512 Kingston HyperX PC2700 Dual Channel @180fsb 2.6volts
ram timing 7-3-2-2
The XP 2100 is a better chip than my XP 2400 and has reached 2300+mhz with ease, maybe I'll swap when he isn't looking The Kingston ram is another story it runs fine in single channel @SPD of 5-2-2-2 and 333fsb, I never could get it over 333fsb @SPD nor would it run @SPD in dual channel even at 333fsb! 7-3-2-2 works great Newer Rev of this ram is out and the latest bios seem to help but HyperX is not recommended nor approved by Kingston for the NF2 boards.....
This system is also fast, stable and trouble free=
My experience with the ASUS A7N8X-D is the same as the above...3 NF2 boards and I've been a happy camper =
