I'd like to get your opinion.
Im stable at prime95 at 2.9GHz 240 FSB default voltage.

At FSB 250 3.0 Gig it quits after 1-2 min even with 1.6 V or 3:2 Ram ratio.

The CPU temp is 51-52 at 240 FSB and 48 at 250 FSB and 1.6 V.

It seems to me the RAM and the CPU is not the limit but more the IS-7. Thats the parameter that is changing. It doesn't get too hot. The requierd volt increase is too large for just 0.10 GHz CPU increase.

??? Too bad if the chipset is the limit.
