    4.5ghz.......damn don't remember when i saw that.........i will keep my eye on that.....and the voltage and the temps......haha

    btw, cpu pll is on auto......have never touched it........should i ?......options for it are like <normal, auto, or manual setting>
    If normal (default) CPU PLL is 1.8 you can try a 1.81/1.82.
    BTW you cannot type &lt; it's reserved for html options, instead type &lt&#59; and &gt&#59;(&gt;)

    ok, changing cpu pll to 1.81 and gonna rerun linx at 3850 for a couple of passes, then try 180 bclk

    3.96GHz.
    After that I think it's time to see how much can the memory be Oced.

    The way I have found mine was I jept increasing ram freq. with a know stable CPU freq./settings until i got errors in memset86+, then tried to lower the voltage to see if it can be pushed further. More is not always better, and I found my memory to OC better with 2.0v even though it's EPP(DDR2 euivalent of XMP) is programmed with 2.1v.
    Of course the maximum that passed memtest86(~1145) was never stable in windows, but I can tun it stable at 1090 instead it's rated 1066.

    If your ram is capable to do DDR-1460/1500 with the 7-7-7-21 timings there's enough room for OC to 4GHz/4.1GHz.

    three successful passes in Linx :) cpu voltage topped out at 1.32, temps around 80, now what......i think i got the memory at a multiplier of like 6........and 7-7-7-21.........
