  1. I have upgraded my rig since I was last here quite a bit, here you go

    E6300 2625Mhz L629A B2 (Best4ghz+ E6300 stepping) Lapped to a mirror
    TMG i1 CPU Cooler
    ABIT IB9 (Maxes 375 FSB stable :'(
    XION XON-103 Case and PSU
    4x1GB of DDR2-800 4-4-4-12 at DDR2-750 4-4-4-8 2v G.Skill PK
    Vista Business 64-bit
    eVGA 7800GT w/ Accelero X1 515/1200mhz

    So what do you think, I want ABIT to release a new BIOS for a higher FSB.

    The B week stepping are better than A week....

    He's probably got phase or LN2. Did you realise his vCore is at 1.7V? Stock is 1.35V.

    know, some xtreme people use 2v :D

    Not many boards support vCore of 2V, and those people who do get to 2V would have done some hardware modding to their motherboards. They're definitely on LN2, and all the caps on their motherboards, as well as any voltage regulating hardware would have been replaced.

    Ya, motherboard voltage mods are fun for the whole family!

    I feel sorry for you, that your motherboard maxes out at 375FSB. I'm used to reading reviews of 680i and P965 chipsets that max out at like FSB2300 (575MHz) :(

    Especially since you have a CPU that can take 500FSB +.

    P.S. Lol, I see that you posted lower on that page you linked to ;)

    Yeah, I was wanting at LEAST 400 FSB for 1600, but 375 equals FSB1500 strange.

    If I had a E4300 or 4400 375FSB gets me well over 3Ghz!

    I wish I would have gotten the tForce P965, review got it to 495 FSB stable :( and I didnt go for it because this was like 20$ cheaper (Got it for 73$ at newegg)

    I wouldn't have saved that 20 bux.....

    I wouldn't have saved that $20 either... although I have acquired a P5B Deluxe for the extraordinarily low price of $0.00 + shipping (shipping was $22.50) ;)

    So when I get my Core 2 E4300 or E4400, CNPS9700, and OCZ Platinum DDR2-800, my CPU is going right up to 3.5GHz :)

    That FSB OC is quite low but maybe the new BIOS will fix things. Most 650i chipsets hit 400MHz and beyond without breaking a sweat.
