    Nice one! So is it running much faster? as fast as a pro?

    Do ou know a lot about motherboards? cos i've got a asus p4s8x-x mobo with a 3.06ghz cpu, and i want to know if i can overclock it a bit. I know you can in the bios. But i don't know what a safe speed would be, cos the only cooling i've done to it, is put one extra fan on the back ( a one of those neon led fans ).
    What cooling would you suggest, that is quite easy to install?

    Thx

    My card is running a hell of a lot faster than a pro. Core is at 448mhz, up from stock of 275. I also vmodded it and replaced the heatsink though so that helped a bit (check my sig for links).

    Depends what ram you've got in that board.

    That's all you need to know. Your FSB is running at 133mhz right now, and that ram is rated for 166 (333 / 2).

    Try increasing the FSB on your board a bit, to about 140 or so. This will also increase your CPU speed. You can keep increasing it bit by bit until it gets unstable or your temps get too high.

    The stock cooler is OK for a moderate o/c which is all you're going for. What are your temps at now?

    Also if you dont mind the noise, I'd keep your side panel off if I were you.

    My temps at the minute are :

    MB: 28.5C / 83F

    CP: 50/51C / 122/123F

    So taking the side casing off keeps it cooler?
