I was going to see if anybody out there has some tweak suggestions for this mobo. I had suggetions for the K7s5A mobo and homemade BIOS's due to the fact of having it for a long time.. however this one is newer to me.
Here is my specs:
-Shuttle MN31N motherboard - Dual channel
-Crucial PC2700 RAM (2x256) 333FSB.
-AMD XP2500 - Overclocked to 2.14Ghz
-NVIDIA eVGA 6800GT 256MB RAM DDR3. @ 380 x 1.10Ghz
-420W ThermalTake PSU
-ThermalTake SilentBoost HFS - lapped- with ASV
I curently run 300Mhz over stock, with an idle temp of 39-40c.
Obvioulsy, if I would have got faster RAM - that would allow a larger buffer.
When I boot, it reads "XP3200+ ... Memory timings 322Mhz".
Im happy at this level and everything is supper stable. Just seeing if any other MN31N have other suggestions or anybody..
Balistix will be next down the road.
