hi guys,

what do you think? abit kr7a-raid with xp1700+ and pc3000 ddr at 380mhz ddr fsb. cpu mult at 8x190 1520mhz and ram at 190/380mhz ddr. this would be air cooled with a peltier and a very well ventilated case. some of you might remember me posting something about doing this, but i burned my xp2000+ and i'm going to do this with a xp1700+ till i get it right. help me guys. anyone doen this before?

[shameless plug]g-luck and i got a kt266a board w/ an xp1700 if ya need it, in classifieds section[/shameless plug]
:tongue:

happiness is finding a stick of ram in your mail.

How many Watt is your peltier, and what is the reason that your XP 2000 burned?

My case has so many fans that it hovers above the ground :eek:  .

i have four of them, two of each. two of them are 8.5 amps and the other two are 6.0 amps. they are 40x40x3.3mm and 40x40x3.8mm. the max voltage on all of them is 15.40. i have to check the watts, i don't know what they are.

oh yeah the 2000+ xp burned when i put the cpu in its socket and the peltier on top of it and the water block on top of that. the part of the peltier that was touching the cpu die burned out. i think the heat from the die killed the peltier and then its self.

Forget the Peltiers, you don't need them at 1520MHz. Save yourself some grief (aka, make your system simpler and more reliable) by using water cooling alone.

What's the frequency, Kenneth?

And use a motherboard that can actually handle 380MHz without frying your PCI cards and hard drive. There are a few motherboards that support the 1/5 and 1/6 PCI dividers.

Look at the IWill XP333, it's the most popular motherboard right now that will handle the 190MHz FSB with ease.

Four? How did you install that, parallel or in series. How the heck do you want to cool those they produce about atleast 8.5*12*2+6*12*2=348 Watt heat, and that is without the created heat of the CPU. You will need a super watercooling to cool that!

what RAM were you planning on using at 190Mhz DDR?

PC2700 is barely out (166Mhz), and not yet a standard. I think it unlikely you will find RAM that takes a 190FSB

Overall - I think you are being way too adventurous.

The speeds and overclocks you are talking about are one off project attempts, not running system configs.

If you want to invest that much time and energy, get yourself some LN2 and post the WCPUID for all to see!

Not at all, he's using PC3000. Anyway, many boards can easily handle 190MHz DDR, but his isn't one of them, which is why he's having problems.

Huh? PC3000? Where exactly did that come from?

Never mind - I found it.

Still only rated 183FSB though

PC3000 is available and he has PC3000. Read the original post!

i'm only using one of them, but i don't think i want to take the risk again. i have a mini freezer in my room, the heat exchanger is in the freezer. with no ocing the cpu is at ~1-3 celsius. with my xp 1466@1520 the temp is at ~15-19. i have to take the heat exchanger out of the freezer when i turn off the computer or it will freeze and i will have to wait for an hour for it.

hmmm..... i'm tired of this stupid motherboard. are you sure that iwill will work? and i want to use a via chip set too. do you know any mobos with via 266a north bridge that will work?

well they say 183mhz and then they say pc3000. i don't know what to go by. 183mhz=pc2928 which i would call pc2900 and pc3000=187.5mhz. so if i oc the ram by 2.5mhz i will get 190mhz or 380mhz DDR.

Nope, VIA isn't making 166MHz+ FSB chipsets for a months. The IWill XP333 is based on the ALi Magik1 (rev.c). Look at it this way, at least you'll avoid the endless VIA 4-in-1s and bugs and fixes every few weeks. The ALi Magik seems to be a more stable chipset. It is however 2-5% slower than the KT266A at 133MHz (266MHz DDR) but it can go higher than any KT266A motherboard.

The new via chipsets dont have any bugs found yet, nothing to avoid.
The "endless" 4 in 1's arent even needed if you run windows xp, and if you dont, just install one, no need to update everytime one comes out if you arent having any problems.


The kt266a chipset is the best option if you only have pc2100 ddrram, and it does rather well. The fsb can usually go to 150+ if your a fan of overclocking.
