    FSB 2 x 167 (334 mhz data rate)
    Core voltage at the mo 1.65v
    Current agp transfer rate 8x v 3.05
    cooling at the mo does some adeqate
    CPU AMD 2800+Barton at 2.08
    768mb DDR 2100
    Leadtek 5900 non ultra @ 3d 500 & 900

    Ya PC2100 memory will be causin' a bit of a bottleneck as PC2700 is what ya really should be usin' so that the memory can run at the same speed as the CPU's FSB. Bein' based on VIA's KM400 with intergrated graphics overclockin' is likely to be quite out of the question as Gigabyte will bundle their EasyTune4 overclockin' software with any of their mobo's that can overclock but it's not available with your mobo so ya likely to just have to put up with what ya have. :shrug:

    Well accordin' to Gigabyte the GA-7VM400M uses the VIA KM400 chipset but if ya've got it to 2.3GHz then luck to you. :thumb:

    50C, is that on idle or 100% CPU load?
    Still I like to see <50C under full load though most boards will be happy so long as ya stay under 60C (a lot will depend on ya room temp though).
