    Don't know whether it's been sorted with a BIOS update, but the P4S800D only allowed +0.1V on the Vcore on release and didn't clock too well either in the reviews I saw.

    Either way, you want to be using either 2 or 4 sticks of RAM otherwise you'll force whichever you use into single channel memory mode.

    The p4p800 should be ok for 250fsb+ I've seen reviews where they got them upto 280mhz, so I'd see how far it'll go before splashing out on a new board

    asus p4c800 and abit ic7-max3, cant go wrong either way. these are the best p4 o/c boards u can buy.
    3D Mark 2k1 - 20661

    If you get a customer, or an employee, who thinks he's Charles Bronson, take the butt of your gun and smash their nose in.
