    The Epox 8RDA+ is a fave with the serious overclockers here, and runs about $80. The nForce2 chipset will unlock that 2400+ for all it's worth....just make sure to save some dough for cooling. :thumb: Also, that ECS board will support a max of DDR266....you're gonna need even faster RAM than that if you want a decent OC....I know, I had the ECS K7S5A, before the Pro came out....it now resides in my girlfriend's PC.....where it belongs...

    dont even get me started with the k7s5a. I had to mod the chipset cooling for it just to run stock fsb of 133. Damn insulating tape! I have a 8rda+ on the way and im excited. All the features you could ever want. I putting a 2400 in it too so ill let you know how it goes.

    Yes you do need to unlock it. Toms hardware has the guide on how to do it. The last 2 L3 bridges are the only ones that need to be "filled" and "bridged".

    Yes, I just confirmed that to be sure...No unlocking necessary with an XP 2400+ on an nForce2 or KT400 chipset, the higher multipliers are available to be adjusted......BUT! If you do unlock it, the very low multipliers are available, which will enable extremely high FSB speeds.
    Also, I've never used a shim, and never had a problem with a broken core.

    I unlocked it on my Asus A7V8X with the KT400. I figured do it, so I wouldn't have to take it out and do after it was put together. Someone passed me along bad info. Oh well, its unlocked and running pretty sweet right now. I am breaking it in at 17 x 133 and am going to adjust after the Shin Etsu thermal paste has a chance to cure.

    I also have the A7N8X which I know unlocks it already, but that is for another one of my systems with a Barton 2500+.

    Sorry for the wrong info. Thats bad when it gets pasted on to me and then I pass it on to another, didn't know. sorry.

    I bought a shim for the 1st time just because. I have never chipped a chip, although I have seen one. I figured 8 bucks, I would try it, only because of the unlocking grease on there. (didn't want to smear it on accident and short the chip out).
    I have never used intel and have built a ton of systems and never chipped a "chip" although it was funny when I saw my 1st one, it was at Bestbuy and the guy was talking himself up like he was a master builder or something and chipped this guys chip! Needless to say we all got a kick out of it, cause the guy was kind of an a$$.

    Have fun,
    Chez
