    Athlon 700@900Mhz Why not!!?

    I recently purchased the Speeddevil 2 from Globalwin it's the one with the L2 Cache settings. I'm running it on my Athlon 700 which is 0.18 micron I have it running at 850Mhz with the voltage set at 1.75V. I was actually hoping that I could reach 900Mhz when its a 0.18 micron. I know its not a heat problem cause when I was running 700 it stayed at a nice 40 degrees celcious and running at 1.75V now its only about 42-43 degrees Celcious after running 3D Mark 2000 and Quake 3 timedemo (I've got the golden orb). Could the problem be my L2 Cache thats holding me back? It's running 1/2 now should I try lowering it to 2/5 or would that lower the performance even if I reached 900Mhz?
    Please help!!!!

    850 with 1/2 cashe speed is awsome with air cooling.. you lucky most ppl can't get it stable @ 800 with the 1/2 speed divider.. Yes you will have to adjust the cashe speed, but I dont know how much performace you will gain going up only 50mhz, but reducing your cashe speed to 2/5.. I dont have much cashe speed experience, since I dont have to worry about it.. so someone correct me if I'm wrong.. good luck!!

    Definately set it to 2/5 if you want to get to 950Mhz. The performance won't drop any.
    You people who think you know everything really piss people like me off who really do know everything.

    yes u will gain some performance but it will not be that much greater. if you can get it stabler and run it cool that high then it would be worth it.
