    Albatron K8X800 Pro II Review - Overclocking


    (Page 8 of 9 )

    Overclocking is definitely not the highlight of this board. The problems are not totally on Albatron, as they provided nearly all the required options except for HT bus speed changes. The main bottlenecks lie within the limitations of the chipset: there is no PCI or AGP lock. This by itself is not completely damning, but the lack of dividers above the stock ones is.

    In addition, it appears that the HT bus, at least in this implementation, does not have the headroom to reach the proposed upcoming 1000 MHz speed with stability. Again however, the AGP and PCI busses would be so far out of whack that very few devices would agree with it. The other thing I noticed was that it did not like memory dividers being used. Since the memory controller is a function of the processor now, it's a problem with AMD. With a proliferation of high speed modules available, and the fact that this is not a dual channel memory setup like that found on the FX, it's probably a better idea performance wise to stick to 1:1 anyway. I'll be better able to answer this question in a future article, after I've had more opportunity to play with this board and various types of memory.  For now, all I could manage was 226MHz for the FSB/HT bus.
