I recently overclocked my xp1700 to 1.6ghz (146 bus) but the memory is only 133(ddr266) so can i put ddr333 in my 266 mainboard?

yes, you most certainly can. the memory controller will just cut it down to the appropriate speed.

Thanks!!! I had a feeling this was the case, gonna get corsair pc2700 for extra performance and stability (this memory is dead cheap now). I'll post my o/c results later :) .

I tried some pc2700 ram that a friend kindly let me use to test the o/c abilities of my motherboard and also used his 2400xp (im getting one soon) and i got it runnin on 150mhz bus (300ddr) and the 2400 reached 2.265ghz! With not so good heatsink tho it ran upto 60 deg but im fairly confident i can get it upto 166 or over when i get the thermalright sk7 :)  Thats 2.49GHZ! hehehe

Thats good man! Keep up the good work. 300 mHz fsb for that system is impressive.

Regards,

Rob

Thanks for your replies :) . Im very impressed with the m/b too, but one thing i did notice when i o/c it and stuck a vacum fan in(fits into spare pci/amr slot) it kicks out some heat to the extent that I dont need my heater on lol :) ! Im seriously considering water cooling but wouldn't know where to start with that.

maybe you might take interest in something like <A HREF="http://www.ocia.net/reviews/8500/8500.shtml" target="_new"> this</A>

i am planning on buying a kit just like this. All ready to go, no guess work, easy installation, all in one package and decent product and performance. I thought I would be lost in watercooling land, but the more I read, it doesnt seem so scary and bad.

Let me know what you are doing.

Hmm im not so sure, the standard temps the reviewer got were pretty poor considering all the effort u go to in setting the thing up, 45c at load is poor i get 50c on my system now at load using the old 1700(a not b)oc to 1.53ghz and just the exhaust fan taking air from the heatsink and its hardly even audible. I think ill stick with my plan to go for the sk7 heatsink and a descent yet quiet fan.
Maybe after ive got this setup up and running ill consider watercooling later because its definitely worth a look.
Thanks for the page though, good reading :) !

No problem.

But you have to realize his setup, case. case fans room temps, etc geographical location are all different then yours, so... His results could be atypical and mucch diff then yours. Who knows, he could have even screwed up , so.

Yeah considering its only like 0 deg outside and 15 in here lol i suppose it could well be thats actually a good temp he got.
