Thanks Paul :-)
Unfortunately, that didn't get the 3 gigs to work I tried every
arrangement of pins. On JP1 and JP2 I thought that would fix it. But
it didn't thanks. That first part of the first link was very
Good news is I figured out with just the 2 in slots 1 and 3 I can get
150+ more megabytes per second in memtest86. It doesn't work with my
old 512 pc3200 stick. But the 512 stick does by it self. I ordered
another new 512mb stick of same series to go in middle and hopefully
get 2.5gigs turbo instead of optimal (default slower). I convinced
newegg to give me no restocking fee before I bought if it doesn't work.
Hoping it does 2.5 gigs isn't bad I'm thinking of vista and games.
I'm also bought an AMD 2600+ (highest supported) and was able to
overclock the multiplier by 1 but got an error in prime95. So I
clocked it down to only .5 over and about +3 the front side bus. Seems
to be stable. The memory really seems to have speeded things up on
turbo. Is it normal for an AMD chip to be able to be overclocked
without modification? I bought a kit to connect the bridges to
overclock think I would get better performance with that? Or if I'm
able to move multiplier up am I already unlocked? Should I try a XP
AMD 3000+ FSB 333 and clock down the FSB for more performance? It's
only I think a 1.01 board but heard on ASUS discussions that it works
to about 150 FSB.
I'm going to try putting my old computer with pc power and cooling
power supply and hook it up to main board without taking out of case
but is only 275 watt. Hopefully that makes it work. I read on their
website a new manual insert that pc2100 and pc2400 or 2500 can't
remember which it is at moment work up to 3 gigs. But pc2700 only
works with 2 gigs BUT, I did get the 3 gigs pc3200 to work with old
video card :-/. I also tried turning down the FSB and latency all the
way down wouldn't post with all 3 1GB sticks and changing voltage. I
might try removing all jumpers on JP1+2 and see if that works or is the
default jumpers same as no jumpers? I'm running out of ideas.
Got anymore ideas Paul or anyone else? Thanks again for the help Paul.
