  1. You can crank up the voltage as high as you want as long as your temps are ok. I have ran my chip at 1.9 for months now with no problems, and i know people that run theirs higher than that with no problems. It's all about the temps

    Athlon Xp2800+ Voltage Increases?!

    Yes to everything except raising the AGP Voltage. It won't do any harm but neither will it do any good in my experience. You can raise you Vcore as high as you want as long as your temp is good. I prefer to keep mine at 50 Deg C and under, though many people run them up to 55 Deg C.

    Need A Bit Of A Hand..

    Do not buy Thermaltake. You will not be happy, they make garbage. If you want a good PSU get a Antec True Power or a enermax. Also the Jet 7 looks cool but on high speed it sounds like a jet. A aeroflo would cool as well or better. Or if you want the best air cooling available get a Thermalright SP-97 with a good 92 mm fan. This setup cools as good as the low-mid range watercooling setups. Oh, and alot of people have been getting the same type of problems with your board when they try to go over 195 FSB. That board just seems to not like going over that FSB.

    Suggestions On My O/c

    If your failing the blend test than your RAM might be bad. The blend test will catch things that even Mem test will miss.

    That is why, that board doesn't like to go over 195 FSB. Try dropping FSB to 195.

    Fried I Need Help!

    Try taking the battery out and letting it sit overnight. Sometimes it can take that long for CMOS to clear.

    Overclocking Help Needed.

    Nice!! Make sure you get some arctic silver 5 with it, you can't go the best on the heatsink and not on the Paste. That would be just wrong

    If you have the money get a thermalright SP-97 and a good 92mm fan like a panaflo. The SP-97 is the best heatsink for AMD period.
