I'm running my 2.4b at 2.5 (150 FSB) at actually lower than stock voltage (1.46) and it's very stable, is this bad for it? I know upping the voltage produces heat which can be bad, but does upping the FSB by itself have any adverse affects?

18x150 = 2700, not 2500... Whenever you overclock you may damage the chip, high voltage and heat are causes of this, but the faster operation in itself may wear it out too AFAIK.

Short of it perhaps temporarily failing on you due to lack of voltage under stress, no.

oops, you're right fizz, it's actually at 139 FSB, I dont know where I came up with 150, I used to have it at that though but not stock voltage. What about my Motherboard? I've read of people's caps exploding or failing or something, if I keep it OC'ed all the time could it cause some sort of MB failure?

Don't worry about it. Its a rare thing to have such a problem. I've ONLY OC'd every mobo / CPU I've ever had and have yet to wreck anything.....

Stroligo said it wouldn't cause any harm apart from heat/voltage, which does not seem to be relevant to your situation- so I think it's safe to assume you are allright sailing on his experience.

Could you post the SL6 code, pack date, and batch number?
Thanks
