    slk-900 with a TT 56cfm fan, or more recently 92mm tornado and a rheobus.

    With the tornado I had it up to 2.508ghz, but it wasn't really stable, and the fan was too loud at that level. Right, now i'm at 1800mhz, and burning in.

    i'm F@H stable at 2404MHz right now...have been running F@H for 3 days w/out problems...played Q3 and Tribes2 for an hour, but P95 losck my system up after 2-4 hrs...regardless of P95, i'd venture to say that 3+ days of F@H and other burn in proggies...i'm okay.....shooting for 2450MHz, then 2500MHz....

    Okay, first my gear:

    MSI K7N2-L Bios rev. 3.4
    AMD Athlon XP 1700+
    {AXDA1700DUT3C 9295117261224 JIUHB0251XPMW}
    512 M Generic (Samsung) PC3200 8-3-3-4 (I think)
    Sapphire 9500 NP 128MB
    WD80GB Caviar w/8MB cache
    Sony CRX 175E CD-RW
    Thermaltake 420W PS

    I reached 1900 when I first tried to clock my 1700 (166 x 11.5). I have since invested a huge amount of personal time into building an external watercooling rig in an effort to improve my speed.

    I am now watercooling both my cpu AND northbridge, with a passive sink on the southbridge. I try to reproduce the above combination and get 500 Mhz?! Everytime I try to set the fsb to 166 and go for a high multiplier I get some BS speed like 500 or 900 or some crazy ****e. What am I doing wrong!

    Are ya keepin' the FSB and memory speed the same? :?:

    Also ya PSU maybe feelin' the strain now.

    up your vcore...i mean really up it. the dUt3c chips don't oc very well....that's what's wrong. your board may not support using higher multis if you get the screwed up speeds so you may need to mod your cpu....check here for help:

    Ok, I read the documents thoroughly and taking that advice I got the following results:

    FSB 154 x 12.5 (1928MHz)
    Vcore 1.650 (I just left it on auto)
    Memory 1:1 6-3-3-2.5

    So 500 MHz isn't bad. I set my memory in single-channel mode, they seem to say this is more o/c friendly. I tested with Sandra loops for 4 hours and it was fine. CPU temp runs around 30 at idle, and never even hit 40 during the testing, so I know my watercooling is, well, cooling. I certainly am getting more than my moneys worth for the CPU I bought. I know I was supposed to go with the higher FSB but I could not reach these speeds. I would crap out about 100MHz lower. I'm willing to go back and try again (overclocker's motto?) but I was hoping someone could give me a little more advice or perhaps reassurance I am doing this right.

    When I seem to top out, my computer fails to POST (or seems to fail anyways). No video signal, won't respond to keyboard, nada. I reset BIOS and start again from the last good settings I had. The guide says to bump Vcore 25mV while bumping FSB a few MHz, but I still hit the same wall, even bumping 50 or 100 mV over. It will not boot unless I reduce my FSB x multiplier to some combination of 1900 or less. I have AGP fixed at 66, and PCI is on autodetect (I don't see a BIOS option to fix PCI, so I guessed this was ok, I have no PCI cards anyways).

    I feel like I should be getting a much higher clock, considering I am not straining my temperatures in the least bit, nor am I pumping a lot of Vcore. Is that the problem right there? Should I turn it up even higher? My power supply output appears to be stable. I am hesitant to wire trick, since this is my daily use computer, and I don't want to smoke it. Are there any other settings I can look at to get past this 1900 barrier, or should I be happy with this? Thanks for all answers!

    did you up your vdimm? that will need upping also. you should be able to get 2000MHz+...definitely up your vcore to at least 1.65V, don't use auto...the DUT3C chips like higher voltage vor oc'ing....

    just keep upping the fsb, your motherboard doesn't use the multiplier's over 12.5 without blowing some bridges.
