I have SY6BA+IV, PCI is 1/3 & ISA is 1/4 but in BIOS it's 122fsb/37pci and sisoft sandra shows pci running at 41, which is correct then BIOS or sisoft?? don't want to spen the money on a cd-rw if it ain't going to work!!
I have an OEM Ricoh MP7060A that's done great writes on a 36.66666 Mhz PCI bus. I've also seen it do a write on 42 Mhz PCI, but I wouldn't call that average. I'm at 110Mhz FSB and 1/3 PCI. Usually 1/4 PCI starts at 124, go for a few more Mhz....
Dual Celerons [email protected], cache latency 0/1, aircooled! As of tonight, my Alphas got an upgrade. I took a resistor off my Sanyo Denki's and now they run 5000rpm! Beat that, TNProud2B! Hoochcooler my butt! Can't do 600Mhz, like my steeking Alphas!
I personally advise, strongly, against anything over PCI 37.5Mhz with an IDE CD-RW.
I also advise against an IDE CD-RW generally, as SCSI is a lot more reliable (and tolerant). Of course you have the greater cost...but I wont OC PCI more than a couple of Mhz if I had an IDE CD-RW, such as the HP 8200i. Also, if it breaks, you got no warranty.
