Right now I'm running 2 sticks of Crucial PC2100 (DDR 2.65) at 170 FSB. How close am I to burning these suckers out, or can I go higher :) ? Any help is appreciated.

Go higher if you can, they will generate errors long before burning out from speed. Raising the voltage is where you kill them and with crucial 2100 they can take a good amount of voltage before you damage them.

I got my pc2100 Crucial to 166 with only +.10 voltage. I hear without a heatsink, safe operating voltages are about 3v. but, if your going to be running at that voltage for very long.. GET AN ACTIVE COOLING SET!

Great guys thanks. I really want to see what this chip can do, and I didn't want to burn out the memory in the process :)
