170Mhz FSB and climbing!! Woot!
It took me two weeks to finally give in and accept that *maybe*
I had a bad system board and it wasn't me, or bad memory,
or a bad Power Supply. I ran down to Microcenter and picked
up the EXACT same board, from the exact same store, and even
the exact same shelf! And already I see that this new board
has a newer BIOS (Jan 18th) and the BIOS chip has a different
number on the sticker. I don't know if this makes any difference,
but THIS ONE OVERCLOCKS!!
I'm returning this bad board tomorrow. I'm pretty ****ed cause
this is the 3rd IWILL board that I've had to return because
something just wasn't quite right. One wouldn't keep the time
no matter how fresh the BIOS battery was. One was way way
overvoltage (like 20%) and wouldn't run stable even at stock,
and this last one wouldn't read the processor speed correctly
nor could I flash the BIOS which I was hoping would fix the
Before I gave in and swapped this board, I was SURE I was
losing my overclocking edge!
Back to overclocking! Wish me luck!
