    it does indeed, if you get the unlocked one. i just ordered an oem from ebuyer and runs at 11.5 x 200 no probs, which is slightly higher than stock 3200

    with PC2700 you can't go any further than 333MHz FSB

    In your sig it says you have PC2700, the max theoretical speed of this RAM is 333MHz (something like 2.7Gb/sec transfer rate?) So you won't be able to get your FSB up which is what overclocking is really. You could increase the multiplier but it won't increase your performance.

    With an NF7-S v2.0 you can. I have the XP1700+ and PC2100. The 1700+ is at 2.2GHz (200*11) and the ram runs at standard speed.

    increasing cpu clock either way will make it faster. acctually fsb doesnt do much, gives only a few % more to my 3dm2k1 score...
    also if you look @ my sig, (most) pc2700 ram is capable of pc3200 (with memsinks, and voltage upped a bit) while mine is capable of pc3500

    Kezzer your 3dm2k1 score seems about 1k too low for a 9800p/2.2ghz athlon :O
