My Super PI timing for 1M calculation is 1m14s.
M/B: Soltek SL-DRV4 KT266A
CPU: Athlon XP 1800 (1533mhz) o/c at 1740mhz 11.5 x 151
384mb ram DDR2100 at CL 2.5

but I search over the web and the time should be less than 1m10s..u guys know why my superPI time is so slow?

well make sure that absolutely nothing else is running for starters.

i also would suggest you DONT use your ram at Cas2.5. Hardest memory timings usually give better results with programs such as these. whats the highest FSB u can run at with your ram at Cas2?

You're an embarrisment to nature you know that?

So u mean overall it would give a better performance if I run at CL=2 with a lower fsb?

Possibly if its not much under spec. Better is to get that RAM running at CAS 2 at normal FSB =)

in some cases, yes.

if the ram is running asynchronously, as with the kt333
people find that 133/133 with Cas2 is better than 133/166 with cas2.5

if your running synchronously, as i think u are, its best to try it for yourself.

set all your ram timings to their hardest settings, and see how high u can go.
