    Instead of posting 2 threads I'll just post both my questions here. I was wondering about the temperature of things like my cpu and the gpu on my graphics card but my bios wont tell me, is there any way I can find out what temp their runnin at? Also, with my mobo I believe that I can upgrade to a faster processor like a 3.06ghz or a 3.20ghz but im not sure, is it possible??:barf:

    The 3.06ghz 533fsb cpu is supported by that chipset.

    For the gpu temp you need to attach a thermal sensor on the gpu itself. The cpu temperature should be viewable under a tab in the bios called pc health status or something similar..

    Or use this great application.

    Thanks, I'll try that app when I get home...., oh and since I'm overclocking that graphics card, is there a way to see if its getting overheated without puttin a node on the gpu itself? Will it get screwed up if its gettin too hot so I know to slow it down?

    Run some intense graphic application such as 3dmark2001 Second Edition

    If you get visual artifacts then your memory chips is running to hot, if you get major lockups then it's your gpu that's runing to hot. If any of these occurs then step down 3-5Mhz and try again til you find your cards oc limit.

    Sufficient airflow within ya case is very important to get the most oc outta ya card.

    No reason to buy a 3.06b, just by a 2.4b and run it at 3.06. Much cheaper, and faster too.

    170x18 1:1 2-2-2-5 easily > than 133x23 1:1 2-2-2-5

    Kingston ValueRam 2700 will do that easily.

    And I've got a 2.4B in a Gigabyte i845PE mobo but try as I may that sucker will not go past 2.71GHz, luck wasn't on my side when I bought that chip. :tears:

    But then as his sig states that he has an Intel 845pe mobo overclockin' isn't really an option for him so the 3.06 would be plus he'll get HT thrown in as well.

    Also, I'll bet $5 he's got an entire Dell system, judging by the monitor he has. And the closest those comps get to overclocking is buy putting a watch underneath the tower.

    Ahem, bad joke, : peace2: Mista K6
    Modified Dell 8200 Case:
    -400MHz FSB i850 Intel mobo
    -P4 Williamette Socket 478, 1.9GHz
    -768MB 16-bit PC800 RDRAM
    -MSI GF4 Ti4200 128MB @ 284/581
    -7200 RPM Maxtors: 60GB (2MB) on mobo and 160GB (8MB) on ATA/133 PCI Card
    -Creative Inspire T7700 7.1 Speaker System on an Audigy 2
    -Windows XP Home Edition SP2

    Rock on : peace2: , MiStA K6

    I know, but it depends on your stepping. I have an old 2.4B B0 stepping that also craps out around 2.7.

    My friend however has a 2.4B that runs at 3.06 daily with stock volts. Mine needed 1.8v just for a suicide screenshot at this speed. If you get a C1 or later its going to be guaranteed (I doubt they sell B0's anymore, I bought it in 02').
