    Ok, another question. With my current setup would it be better to leave my overclock as it is 166x13.5 or unlock my processor and lower the multiplier and raise the fsb some more? Which will give me a better oc and better preformance?

    With the Abit NF7-S v2.0 ya wouldn't have to unlock ya Thoroughbred as the chipset will do that for ya but on ya current mobo it wouldn't be worth it as the KT266A chipset wasn't designed with those sort of speeds in mind.

    sorry if im intruding but i got one little question. my memory is cas 2.5, and if i raise it to cas 3 would it help my memory cope with the overclockingness, and would i have to change any of the other timings? my memorys been kinda squirrelly and uncooperative through my overclocking missions

    Try upping your voltage to the RAM (DDR Reference Voltage, Vdimm), as GieL tends to need more voltage than other brands.

    Mine are run at 200mhz on default voltage and they do get pretty warm...

    Wonder if my DDR550 at 3.0v would feel hot.....

    Well, IT could depend on your RAM's closeness to the CPU :D Also I think some RAM runs warmer than others :cheers:
