I use rain at the mo. It used to make a huge difference when I was using the old Bios for my BF6, but since I flashed to QJ bios, rain dont do nothing. The bios seems to cut power to the CPU automatically!
Well I can only get my 450 up to 630 if I disable the L2 cache. It isnt worth the performance drop though. It goes to 612mhz fine but my L2 cache is only 4ns not 3.6 so thats my limiting factor.
As for video card, I had hell on trying to get my CL TNT2U and my ViperV770U to run at 133Mhz fsb. So much so in fact that I bought a new cooler for the viper and fecked the chipset getting the old fan off
The CL runs fine now with or without the big fan. I still had probs with certain appz and games like 3DMark and Quake3 until I flashed my bios to a version that sets the SDRAM leadoff time to 4 instead of 3 if you hit 133mhz fsb. If you are having probs with ur video card try that..it worked for almost everyone I know.
I did actually borrow a V3000 to see if that worked...and it did...much better that the TNT originally. Once I changed the SDRAM setting though, the TNT was way faster and just as stable. I can even o/c it to 175/200mhz and post 6100+ on 3DMark in 800x600
