i just read some of ur posts here and i figured out with the cpu-z program that im running a a64 3000+ with C0 stepping...
by ur posts it sux.
i also have a gigabyte KT800 - not a KT800pro and therefore i guess my PCI and AGP arent locked.

by all that info, i figured out im kinda stuck with overclocking, or atleast i shouldnt try any.
am i right?
any suggestions?(not like "buy a new gear")

oh btw - im new here... be gentle :)

well you could overclock it a bit but you cant to much because the pci bus needs to stay below lie 35-36 mhz in order to avoid hard drive corruption

and how do you know heh as a Cg revision.

CO and CG are revision's not steppings. The steppings are the5 digit codes like CAABC for exsample. For now we have no idea if steppings affect overclocking like they did on the socket A platforms.
