    I have couple question i have a ga-7n400-L mobo 2500xp and 512 ddr 3200 ram no name ram. i was wondering is this mobo good enuff to o/c my cpu on or do i need a mobo wit fan on it liek i was gonna get a ga-7nnxp instead i have a Thermaltake Xaser III Skull Case and was gonna get a thermaltake volcano 7 hsf wit speed contorl.


    Would i be better off keeping my mobo and buying some good ram or gettin ga-7nnxp and usin ram i got i only want to get 2 3200+ speeds.

    And i try to raise vcore on my ga-7n400-L mobo only got 3 options (+5% +7.5% and +10%) which would i pick.

    Help needed.:confused:

    You should be able to get to those speeds, You have a n-force 2 chipset and DDR rated for 400mhz. Hum for the vcore push it only if you can manage the extra heat ant test your rig after (prime95), you may need the extra voltage to get to 200 mhz fsb... depens on your luck! (tip to lower temps while overclocking: lower the multiplier)
    Oh and for the ram keep the factory timings to get to 400mhz DDR, if you want to get higher, slack them before upping the fsb.

    I see that Gigabyte still persists with those stupid %'s but first make sure that the memory is runnin' at the same speed as the CPU's FSB (166MHz/333DDR) then raise the Vcore +5% and see how far ya get then.

    Other than the GA-7NNXP havin' Dual BIOS, ATA RAID, SATA and aditional Gigabit LAN there wouldn't be anything between them as the rest of the spec's are the same. :shrug:

    Well my volcano 7 wit speed control fit on the ga-7nnxp mobo.doesn't look like much room there tho.
