    My 1600+ on the way, anything I should know?

    Yay my Newegg 1600+ is on the way!

    Pretty much I am planning on overclocking the buggery out of it and was just curious to know if any of you 1600+ veterans out there had any pressing knowledge you could impart....Any useful information is welcome I have been doing a lot of reading on the forum as of late but you can never have to much advice methinks

    Congrats and good luck!

    Hope for agoia y.

    If you have a good mobo and psu you should be able to hit 1.7ghz with ease.
    Add good cooling (High-Perf. air or water) and 1.8 will be a piece of cake.
    Good ram and a good psu and 2ghz may be within reach!

    Watch temps and 5v line.
    Still overclocked and running linux on watercooled computers after all these years.

    Hey thanks guys,

    I'm hoping for an AGOIA Y but I have heard that lately people have been getting AGOIA Z's from new egg and they arent so great.

    I'm hoping to make 1.7ghz, Juliendogg's post fills me with some hope

    I have 300W PSU, Powerman which is a rebadged Sparkle isn't it?

    What exactly is the 5v line? and why should I watch it??

    unless you have a AGOIA Z, you WILL get 1.7 on ANY AROIA or AGOIA.

    Now, do not go and get excited saying i am gonna get 2ghz etc etc.... thats what i did and got pretty upset when the thing would only do 1790mhz w/ 1.95v

    My understanding is that 2ghz is really only possible with water cooling correct? I'm hoping for 1700, if I get more great, mind you a 300mhz overclock is nothing to complain about , not for 51.99 anyway
