    I did a 3Dmark03 test with my system totally standard and got 4459. Then i overclocked my Cpu from 133x23 by increasing the FSB in the bios to 138x23= 3174 ( 115mhz increase ). The CPU temp didn't really increase, but because of the very small difference in performance, infact it wasn't noticable, so i put it back to 3066mhz. The 3DMark03 results with 3060@ 3174mhz was only 4495 an extra 36 points. I didn't notice any difference in how fast programs loaded or anything. If i build the bottle up i might try increasing the FSB to 166x23 (with increased cooling ofcourse). But at the min i'm just going to concentrate on the graphics card, increase cooling on it and oc it, or just do some extra shifts at work and buy a new card. If i do get a new card i'm going to over clock my 9700np until it blows and then i can tell u's how far to go, lol.

    You won't get that far with that motherboard and its SiS chipset. If you did, you would be asking 3.8ghz+ from that CPU which also won't happen without some form of Vapochill or a Prometia.

    You also won't notice much difference by testing 3DMark03 because 95% of your score is based on the video card. Run 3DMark01 to see the gains from CPU overclocking.

    Is the Asus P4S8X-X not a very good motherbaord?
    It alows me to over clock the CPU over 3.8ghz.

    When i did the 3DMark 2003 tests i noticed that it said on the second set, ' Testing CPU'.

    How do you know it lets you get that high? Have you tried?

    It will let me do it, its just the CPU temp gets high. With the correct cooling it would be fine. It's just knowing the best way to cool it down.

    Also soulburner, could you tell me a bit about 'cpu, memory, and agp voltage adjustments' and how you benefit off changing them?

    CPU Voltage is known as vcore, more is needed the faster the chip is overclocked. Too much or too little will make it unstable.

    DDR Voltage is known as vdimm, again the faster you run it the more its going to need.

    AGP Voltage shouldn't be changed.
