My AN35N Ultra 400 is togther and I've started playing a little. I unlocked a XP1900+ AGOGA (2100+ batch) pally, and started testing. The system will run fine at 10*166FSB- not really an OC, but I was just testing multipliers. The memory (XMS3200) is set to 200, 8-3-3-3, for stability. I've tried 180FSB and it will boot Windows, till I try to run a stressing application (benching). Is this possibly due to the fact that the FSB and memory are not in sync? I'm going to try later when I get home both 200FSB (lowering mult. to 8-9), w/ memory in sync @200, and another test just lowering the memory to 360mhz to run in sync. at 180FSB. I don't think 1800 is stressing this chip.

I have a XP2100+DUT3C (2.2g batch) on the way to try. I'll post results tonight.

I got tired of screwing around with FSB settings, so I just set it to 200, memory to 100%, and walla!! She cranked right up. Seems at higher FSB settings, the FSB and RAM like to be in sync. It just would not play anywhere between 175-190 FSB, with the memory @ 400. This chip ain't a stellar OC'er though- 1800mhz out of a XP1900+ (pally AGOGA).
