    upgrade concerns...

    Hey all,
    I've been out of the ocing/tweaking scene for a loooong time. Finally I got some funding together and decided to go for some new stuffs.

    I was looking at a 2500+ Barton, as my local retailer has AQXEA steppings which I hear are doing pretty well. Thing is though, I have an Asus A7N8X deluxe with 256 mb of PC 333 RAM. The A7N8X seems to have the ability to run the ram lower than the FSB, but I ran some tests with my current proc, and the results are mediocre at best.
    [edit]
    I forgot in my fervor to mention my actual problem: Does anyone know how to get the asychronous FSB/Mem timings working better?
    [/edit]

    I presently have a 1700+ Paly which doesn't mind the 166 FSB with the mult knocked back a bit. The Ram is real dodgy above 166 though as it is.

    Also, Any word on Koolance? Those cases look sweet, I was thiking about picking one up. Though the hose diameter is pretty tiny. Thing is, I have a rad, res, and pump from my old WC setup, but no waterblock... Should I just get me a DangerDen Maze 4 and live with my ugly case? Or should I drop the dough and go for the pretty Koolance? I don't have the capabilities right now to mod my present case, so I don't think that's going to be a possibility. I'm just tired of this constant whirring from my fan!

    Any input is very welcome! (and if anyone wants to offer advice on a new rad and where to put it in my case, I'll get back to you on the model SO OLD, I'd appreciate that too)

    Thanks again!
