    is a 250 (500 total) fsb possible on any Nforce2 boards, with or without 2nd hand bios's i was just wondering if this is possible, preferable without going to water cooling.

    It is possible, but not with air cooling.

    The highest I see normally on air cooling is in the 230s with voltage modding on Abit NF7 boards (usually 1700+ DLT3C).

    The record that I have seen so far was 277 on an A7N8X.

    The guys doing that are dripping LN on the CPU to sustain it though....crazy Japanese sob's.

    Thats way overkill for AMDs....they will be underclocking that RAM...

    3dgameman.com did a video review and he said he did 260+mhz on them (or 520mhz ddr.) With the new 64bit athlon coming out, i htink the ram wont be used at a underclocked rate.

    Yes, but he is asking about Nforce 2 boards.....which won't run an Opteron.
