AlbinoPenguin, Knock the I/O up to 3.5 and the core up to 1.85. You are approaching the limits of air-cooling(even with an Alpha) at 1.9v. You'll notice that it wil get very hot, very fast if you set it to 1.9v. I've gone all the way up to 3.6 on my I/O and it works fine. 3.5 is going to be necessary if you want to contimue OCing higher. 3.4 I/O is imaginary on the KA7 since setting it there still yeilds 3.3 in the monitor/BIOS. You are going to want to drop your CAS lat down to 3 if you are running 2, regardless(for testing OCing, it's a must). Later you can bump it back up.
Leave all the other CPU settings alone as I have found that they really don't make that much of a difference when trying to push OCing.
Good Luck, and watch those Temps!
The more I learn, the more I realize I don't know anything at all.

Alright. I now have my 700 running at 900, STABLE, with 2/5 cache, 1.75v core, [email protected] and 3.50 I/Ov.
I find this odd: I can hit 900, but when I try to push it to 950 I fail. But then when I try to go back to 900 at these settings it fails. So then I have to sit at 850 for a day or two then it will let me hit 900 again.
Some type of burn in maybe?
I'm gonna let it sit at 900 for a day or two then try to go for 950+.
