    I stoped at 335 on the stock cooler and have droped back to 320 till somthing a bit bigger turns up. But I've been having some problems with my P5W DH Delux not letting me chance the Vcore at all (it's only got the option Auto in the bios.) I've left it running Rosetta for the last 24hrs to bed in and a quick 3dmark is giving a reasonable 6200 at 2.88Ghz with a mild clock on my 1900XT

    I'll post some results next week. Only got the system working this pm because of some strange craziness with my 975xbx. Still have a lot of stuff to install on the new system before I think about OC.

    Cant seem to go any higher than the above speed, i got it to boot at 3.39 but it crashed and on reboot my raid array had failed so had to reinstall everything, going to bring it right back down for the time being. Also ctrl and F1 seems to do nothing in my BIOS, how do i change memory timings!?!?!

    do the ctrl + f1 from the main bios screen, it should flicker slightly and then you go into the tweaker bit and the mem settings should be visible.
