I've re-run most of my previous benchmarks with 7.58 driver, it's a fair bit faster. I tried 3.2v with the cpu at 300mhz, still blue screens. I'm not wasting any more time with this cpu aiming for 300mhz. I might put my 200mmx in at a later date. Also I have a Tillamook cpu that may work with this motherboard if I do the cpu mod.
For some reason the 233mhz screenshot is corrupted. The score was 1340

the score was corrupted in the screenshot? weird..

can you upload the driver you are using in a zip please I'm having trouble finding a working version that has a working download link

I re-ran the 233mhz bench and updated the post, also added the driver.

For those wondering about ATI video cards, I ran this with a radeon 8500. Interestingly it has the exact same memory IC's as the Geforce 3 Ti200, which means the memory on the GF3 has a fair way to go from 430 to 550mhz, well theoretically anyway. I used the 2.2 driver. No idea if a later one will improve performance or not.

Very nice :p btw, if any of you guys are running usb2.0 cards. Take them out when doing benchmarks. Just being there can drop your score a few hundred points

No mouse, hence no cpuz in same screen. Just putting up for reference, not a record or anything 🤣. Seems this card is better than a 7000, but not as good as a 7500

I don't know how but I beat it, barely. similar configuration to Yourself, except Epox EP-MVP3G5 Stb Voodoo 2 SLI, P233mmx at default speed.
This was about the 10th run. I tried the other voodoo 2 as the output, not that I have any idea whether that made any difference or was just sheer fluke.

I like your mobo.

Which version of the video card is that? Do you have a pic of the card?

Using vga I assume?

I haven’t had much luck getting my mx400 working on my tyan s1564d

Same machine, but now used RivaTuner to OC the card a bit.
I achieved 255MHz core, 380MHz RAM.

My MX-400 has only VGA. And yes, I use it together with a very nice high refresh rate Sony Trinitron CRT. (CPD-G200p)

That's pretty cool. You might be able to achieve even better performance if you limited yourself to just 64MB RAM, not just in 3DMark 2000 but for most games you'll ever play on this. This has been discussed before, but the i430TX chipset that your motherboard integrates can only cache up to 64MB with performance degrading after that point.

No worries. I use top 192MB of ram for ramdisk and Windows only recognizes 64MB 😉
