    Yup, you can drop you RAM speed down to stop it limiting your cpu overclock.

    should be getting one of these puppies next week

    although i'l be damned if i know what mobo to pair it with

    decent review although a bit daft not having any benchmarks results from a higher up a64 such as the 3500

    oh and the overclocking wasnt hard core enough

    just happened on this and the review - how on earth did i miss it??!!
    good job I got one the other week then

    now, its a week 48 one, how do we know which ones are good at overclocking a touch and have no troubles as I hear different weeks have different abilities it seems.

    p.s. I like the table listing all variations of AMD64's and at the bottom it says 'Street Price'...i have the vision of some bloke in a rain coat opening up one side to reveal a load of cpu's hanging on clips "just for you mate, a fiver..." lol!

    what revision board is it as rev 1 boards are not locked

    if it is a revision 2 (they all have working agp/pci locks) you may be better off using the promise sata rather than the via sata ports

    and yes you should also drop the htt to 4X

    Swapped the SATA to the Promise controller, set HTT x 4, VCore to 1.45, RAM to DDR333 and FSB to 275... And its stable

    I found that on my asus a8v-e the first time i tried to oc.
    I flashed the bios and 4 some reason it no longer corrupts sata. If an oc doesnt work it simply resets tot he neerest setting. I only can get fbs to 250 (2.25 gig) stable and found running ddr500 ram helps since its natural fsb is 250.
