has anyone used this combo and if you have what have you acheived, im just gettin a benchmark so i know what i can get to 'safely'.

ive lapped my V7 and ill probably be using AS3, oh and ive put an extra fan chassis on top of the hsf and then my fan.

XP and V7 non-plus

I got about 1667 out of mine with the side panel off, but the chip can do 1900 with enough voltage and low temps. If its really cold in the room, you can do well, maybe around 1766. Also it helps to modify the Volcano 7 fan to run at full speed.

well with WC and unlocking your cpu maybe you will be able to get 1800 mhz (10x180) not bad ;)

here we go. got my xp1800 (o/ced to 1664) to 37c idle, 41c full load with a 92mm fan. chips could probably do much better but my mobo is holding me back.

check my sig for what im getting now (with no case fans)

volcano 7 is definatly not as bad as everybody says
