    Talking Got my new C1 2.53 today from Terry!

    Running at 3.33GHz right now on 1.475v actual That said, I haven't checked for stability. Will be running SETI soon enough to begin testing.

    Only problem with the FSB of 175MHz is that my RAM is only running at 175MHz since it can't handle the 220MHz with only 2.8v

    So far she seems like a beauty. Was running 3.8GHz and 1.7v but temps were too high for my crappy heatsink (56*C instantly and climbing in BIOS), so I'll see what I can get on default voltage until I get some watercooling

    A puppy with two peckers...hmmm...that'd be hard to beat

    Quite happy with the setup though, yes! Just wish I had better RAM though. Otherwise, it looks like I'll sacrifice some CPU speed for some RAM bandwidth since SETI likes RAM bandwidth more than anything. Working on getting some better RAM though as well

    I can't run either 4:5 or 3:4 at 175MHz FSB. I figure I should be able to use the 4:5 divider at 166MHz easily, and maybe 170MHz. That way I would be around than 3.16GHz-3.23GHz and still have RAM at 208MHz-212MHz. 175MHz FSB though, I have to run 1:1 ratio which is a killer for RAM performance

    I got this new 1.0a that did 1.6GHz stable at around 1.62v but then I put in the box and it isn;t doing as well but it may be the ram. I can run 1.54GHz on default vcore. Pretty sweet chip. If I can do those speeds on that vcore usually it means the chip will do a few 100MHz higher with more juice. Maybe this epox don;t like the high FSB's like some mobo's don't. Can't complain though. It gets scores quite close to my PIII-s in super pi.

    This new epox board has some weird setting that I don't how to work yet really well. Ram buffer and some other BS. Choices are defaul-normal-weak-strong. So far it seemed that possibly strong was the best for stability.

    Come on. Go for the Promedia cooling on that hand picked core. It should do 4Ghz easy.

    I bet it could with the right cooling... I'm going to start with watercooling. I need to find a decent, yet affordable (~$35 hopefully) waterblock for P4. Then I'll move on to chilled water (maybe with the aid of the outside air..its like -4*C out there right now. That wouldn't be bad to leave the reservoir and radiator sit outside my window. It'd be like home-made Promethia cooling
