    Ok, but PC3200/3500 would've been better though, but will it boot at 13.5 x 166MHz? :?:

I have a Logitec USB mouse, but plugged into the adapter and using the PS/2 connector.. it's one of those optical mice. er mouse.

    I had better luck OC' my T-breed 2100 ver b and actually got better benchmarks on it than I have so far on this Barton.

    Is 170 MHz too much of a jump? I had the multiplier set to something like 10 at that FSB. At least I think I had set the FSB to 170.

    Well I'm not changing boards just to overclock. I like the Abit KD7E just fine. I've always liked the way that Abit has their BIOS set up and keep updating as the need arises. I've heard some stories about memory compatibility with the Nvidia based chipsets. This is seen a lot at www.newegg.com in the system RAM section under different memory manufacturers.

    The Kingston Hyper X series should be in thursday at the latest that's Thursday here in the states for you guys down under with your watches set a day ahead... LOL:D

    I'll give some more tweaks then.. otherwise, I'm at 167 MHz with my 2 X 256 Crucial pc2100 in at the moment, and multiplier setting at 12, so doesn't do too shabby. Temp is 24 degrees at the moment for cpu core.

    I thought Abit bought out Asus to try and help them out and they are all Abit now??

    Booted tonight at 168.37 X 13.5 = 2,272.94 MHz :cool: Temp stays at 32 C Got that new Kingston Hyper-X series PC2700 DDR ram in. It's rated at CAS 2 so I set everything to the most agressive settings.. WOW!!!! What a difference RAM makes.

    Now I'm wondering if I can do 14?? LOL

    Can't do 14.. well, not with the votage where it's set. might try again sometime, but didn't make it past the system commander Master Boot Record startup screen. Bet it was whinning inside when it got to there.. :eek:

    Psssst: It got pretty warm inside the house this late afternoon, up around 83 or so (F) so I turned on the AC then I put the duct tube down at the AC vent... lowered my CPU temp from 44 down to 30 doing that. *S*
