NVIDIA nForce2 C1: on the threshold of Athlon XP 3200+ with 400MHz FSB? Results of overclocking

I donít know if the question sign is suitable in the title: judging by SiS´s recent SiS748 + SiS963L bundle and VIA´s preparations for KT600 + VT8237 (KT400A-CE, according to some sources), both of which support 400MHz FSB, this stir has a reason.

NVIDIA acts simpler from this angle, having made nForce2 to support this bus from the start. Nevertheless, it continues to release new steppings of it with improved specifications.

Currently there are two nForce2 steppings popular in the market: A2 and A3. However, we got to know about another one — A1, being actually a version of C1. It seems NVIDIA is also to make thorough preparations for 400MHz FSB products.

It turned so that EPoX 8RDA3+ already bases on nForce2 C1. Having set VDD to 1.65V and used DDR460 memory, overclockers have succeeded in achieving stability with up to 230MHz FSB!

ABIT NF7-S Rev. 2.0 is said to be another mobo on this revision. It work stably at 228MHz FSB in dual-channel mode at chipset voltage 1.7V and Vdimm 2.9V with Twinmos PC 3200 modules on Winbond BH5 chips.
