    that is one uber time dude, its the massive cache and sheer clock speed that give you that quite amazing time

    I would overclock if i could. Thing is my mobo has no overclocking ability. Doesnt let me mess with voltages or even fsb speeds. The only time ive done it is using a program called speedfan. Managed to get it to 2220 before i got scared and backed off. I dont think there is any other way to mess with voltages other than the bios and if there are any other overclocking programs out there i would like linkies please . :lol:

    I think I need more raw MHz to get any faster, and unfortunately no matter how much voltage I feed my Barton, it just won't do it...

    242FSB though, ph34r :hip:

    And that's the funniest thing I've seen in a long time :clap:

    Sigh. Keep an open mind. It's just like people who think you NEED water to get to 2.5 on a 2500+. Guess what, you DON'T. My friend does it with an SLK900U and Tornado. I had the pic, but stupid angelfire cut my site...

    still burning in, I updated bios and it screwed everything up, couldn't get to windows without a BSOD at anything above 2.4Ghz, couldn't boot with 12.5x multiplier either. Even after reverting back to d18 from a hacked version of d10 :blah:

    Anyway, 215x11.5 worked this morning, so we're back off upto some decent fsb's and speeds :cooldude:

    Just gotta break the damn 40s barrier, need either 230+fsb, or 2550Mhz+

    so what BIOS are you on now? and have you finally sorted your NB cooling, is that why you've got the new FSB or is it just feeling funky today?

    I think I've sorted the northbridge out, but I'm going to have to increase fsb slowly, 210 was the max I could get it to run at yesterday, in windows, without it crying on me. Today, I rebooted and tried 215fsb, and that worked, so tomorrow, I'll try 220x11.5 and see if I can get to some reasonable core speed :)

    I'm using d18 (latest available), as I was before, but, I tried to use a hacked version of d10, which is supposed to have the latest sata bios attached to it. It didn't work, and after reverting back, I've seen my temps (from the previous d18 that I was using) rise by a good 6'C on my case temp, and same again on core temp. However, it's stable, so who gives a monkeys :p

    If I get round to it, I'll do the vdd pencil trick, to give me about 1.9v on my northbridge, meaning I should be able to get higher, more stable fsbs :)

    well I've got it totally stable at 2.03v 2500Mhz, so I don't need 2.25v at all to make it stable at 2500Mhz... here's some more messing, still 40s, but getting closer to making it 39s...
