I just rebuild my kids' machine with
Sempron 2.2 (9*166)
512 M DDR3200 (2.5-3-3-8)
I was able to reach better than Sempron 2.5 perf with 9*200 by jumpering the CPU FSB and setting DDR 400Mhz and overvolting +10% in the bios
Using Everest, I was happy to see the chipset clock to be 67MHZ, (QDR) which must mean that the AGP divisor is WORKING
So far, so good
I noticed the memory setting of ASROCK suck badly
the ram is being driven at 2.5-5-4-9 instead of 2.5-3-3-8 indicated by SPD
I am currently playing with WPCREDIT and WPRCSET.
I have not found the KT400A datasheet. I have used the KT266 pcr as a starting point.
I modified offset 64 bits 7 and 6 from 11 to 10 to get RAS from 9 to 8
and bits 2 and 3 from 11 to 01 to get RCD from 5 to 3
Changed offset 69 DRAM queue bit 5 and 4 from 10 to 01 (overall hex value from 2D to 1D)
Changed D5 policy bit 4 and bit 1 (overall hex value from 1C to OE)
memory read (Everest): from 2146 to 2267 : 4.8%
memory write (Everest) from 604 to 711: 17.7%
Latency (Everest) from 136,5 to 134: 2%
Is anyone knowledgeable with the KT400A chipset ???
I would like to know :
1/ how to get RP down to 3
2/ If anyone is skilled in editing the AMIBIOS 1.3 and flashing it
the only tool I have found able to read the bios file si AMIBCP 7.51.03
I got the bios file from
http://www.asrock.com/support/download/ ... +.htm#bios
I got the pcr file from
3/ what are the hidden features of the bios
Because I would like to make the change permanent instead of having to load PCRset at every boot.
