    If you unlock the CPU and lower the multiplier but get the FSB up to 166MHz where the next multiplier cuts in then everything really goes sweet then just go up from there. :devil:
    Flaco 2.2v is the upper limit of the core setting. :smokin:

    Yeah, the Epox has one helluva Vcore option on the 8K3A+. As one fellow said "don't go there without watercooling, son."

    I have not overclocked with my soltek yet, but i will once i get my corsair XMS ram, it looks like it has good overclocking capabilaties though, i don't know what the vcore goes up to but it's a fairbit i think??? also you can go in increments of i in the FSB
    Or if you don't feel like messing around you can use the red storm overclocking which is built into the bios.
    + it has ABS II (anti burn sheild) so if it gets to hot from within the core it shuts off :D

    That's very hard to say as some will not require much or any increase where others will need a lot the only thing to do is just to see how yours goes and adjust in small amounts, if necessary, till you have a stable system. There is no exact formula to work to other than just trial and error. One person with the exact same hardware setup may only need a 0.1v increase where you may need a 0.7v increase or around the other way. :smokin:

    i personally don't like that board - because it is "legacy free" meaning it had no serial, parallel and ps/2 ports, so unless you already have a usb keyboard and mouse, your going to have to buy them if you upgrade to this motherboard.

    I don't care about the serial or paralell. when was the last time you used the serial or the paralell. my printer is usb and the keyboard doesn't bother me. so is it a good board
