  1. Hello, I'd like to separate some in-depth research considering sA that started in this thread: https://community.hwbot.org/topic/187148-a7n8x-e-deluxe-as-an-alternative-for-socket-462/ I'd like to discuss some sA and NF2 specific mods to: Make instructions for beginners Investigate other BIOS mods Make some progress if possible I'd like to investigate the work done by gurus like Merlin, tictac and many others, take the best from them and maybe move ahead. It would be very nice to get over 250FSB by tuning system registers and check how it's done. I'll start with some known mods and would like those familiar with ( @Mr.Scott ,@I.nfraR.ed, @digitalbath, @Tzk, @Strunkenbold, @TerraRaptor) to check in and correct if I'm wrong: BPL mod (also NVMM in later versions) - memory init routine from NV. Newer versions are better (up to 3.19?), latest are sometimes incompatible. CPC off (=CR 2T) seems to be modded in BPL. ROMSIP - a set of tables (CPU interface on/off, and for 100/133/166/200 FSB) with CPU and chipset related settings. Influence stability, overclocking, performance. soft-L12 - a mod that acts as BSEL, forcing BIOS to implement FSB200 settings even on FSB133 CPUs. Most mod BIOSes have it, add stability on high bus speeds. modified alpha-timings (can be set using the new NF2 tweaker from Infrared) options ROMs with performance tweaks (3D-fire for example - modified chipset registers?) changed some northbridge registers (S2K control probe limit, XCAARB_RD/WRCOUNT, DQSEN_PULL_B, Auto Refresh Cycle Time, Read-to-Read Command Latency, Pre-charge All Command ) (seen on Asus A7N8X dlx mod BIOS) Please, stay to the topic, don't discuss CPU binning, memory, voltmods and other things. BIOS mods and how they affect the system is the primary goal. Do not discuss cosmetics and general BIOS techniques like opROM update, unlocking menus and so on. I believe we all know how this is done (or it can be discussed in a different topic) so we can focus on advanced stuff.

  2. I mean, if it works, there's not need for an extra BIOS for P4P800SE. You could use mine and mod it if you like. So you don't waste time and power. The menus were added by hand, the chapters were moved using AMIBCP. I took the idea from Asus Jumperfree section on newer 775 boards when you have all you need: frequencies, voltage, timings - all in one place. http://web.archive.org/web/20090503062933/http://www.rebelshavenforum.com/sis-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=52;t=000132 Bottom of the page.
  3. Have you tried different GART versions? https://sites.google.com/site/nf2stuff/ Can't find that thread about drive strength.
  4. Have you tried using my BIOS in P4P800SE? I'd recommend to disable integrated peripherals as well - audio, COM and other stuff. According to the datasheet, this one works only for IGP, so I didn't take it out.
  5. Это известный баг последних версий враппера. Ждём исправления.
  6. They kinda always say that. But we can check full build number and guess from that.
  7. Here's a working one - you use latest CPU-Z (or CPU-Z vintage) version for submitting frequency reference scores and you back off from peoples old results that aren't obviously bugged.
  8. Why should I put a "_" in it's name? It's called TX97-XE, like it should.
  9. I can. Rename to what? Seems fine to me:

  12. If you have a programmer or a board to hotflash, give it a try. IIRC, the 865/875 were compatible between generations. The first generation P4P800 with P4C800 is gen1 and P4P800SE with P4C800-E are gen2. I do have a P4P800 SE but haven't tested it yet.
  13. You have to mod the ME region that is responsible for clock configuration. Then it's just XTU. Firmware mod. https://www.techinferno.com/index.php?/forums/topic/1624-lets-enable-overclocking-on-all-6-and-7-series-laptops/
  14. Hello @Freakezoit, I would very much like to hear of this legit tweak that gives more than 100% boost with basically same clocks: https://hwbot.org/submission/840529_freakezoit_3dmark2001_se_mirage_3_(sis_670671771)_2658_marks @Leeghoofd, what do you think?

  16. Do you have a GPU-Z screenshot?
  17. No specific, just logical sense. On your picture I think 1366 + 370 doesn't look good. I think apples to apples would be good enough - AMD with AMD, Intel with Intel, relative sockets together or by date. Say: 1366+1156, 775+771, 478+370, 939+462, 441+S1 if we stick to current socket count. Also, MSI+Gigabyte together. And Intel, AMD, NVIDIA, ATI on one row. Oh, and this looks broken:
  18. Yep, less pages to scroll, more informative for each one.
  19. Any chance to stick my sugesstions about hardware pages too? I believe they don't change time response but they do improve usability.
  20. You replace the input frequency of 14.318MHz that goes to PLL with a custom one. This shifts all the clocks from the PLL. Breaking the timer, USB, floppy. Thus, you need to provide stock 14.318 (system timer), 24MHz (floppy?) and 48MHz (USB) as well to maintain these while other frequencies go up. You shift only the base clock, the board's PLL does the rest. Nope, should work with pretty much any PLL.
  21. I believe it's still on beta on my drives I'll try to clean it up and post. BX133-RAID as well.
  22. Excellent choice. They are voltage limited to +0.4V IIRC, but this can be fixed with a BIOS mod.
