Oh well. It was basically one of my first rigs. Besides, the thing is that the 2.7V I gave my RAM DID work for about 5 months (when I had 2x512Mb) before one stick began to fail. Aftwerwards, I guess the manufacturing processes and crap never made such good RAM again . I'll try cranking up the volts, but in your opinion, is the extra 36Mhz in FSB really gonna make a difference?
Thanks for that info. Hopefully ASUS can get back to me before those auctions end (I'm really reluctant to spend any more money since I've already spent over $800; it seems that every time I upgrade one thing, something else fails and I'm just about out of cash.) But I'll definitely keep the Abit board in mind.
Quick question, can too much voltage actually cause the CPU to be unstable???
Well, I knew that part, and my CPU is cold enough:
I guess I should have asked this instead:
Let's say that temperature is NOT an issue and a certain CPU in reality needs 1.7V to be stable. Will running it at 1.725V or higher cause instability??? (This would be for testing purposes as I do not know the voltage really required for stability yet)
