I'd recommend you to use a different drive for documents and data instead of having everything on the same drive, even with different partitions if the MBR gets damaged it takes the whole drive down.
Back on topic, I've found that the 1.50 and 1.60 bioses aren't as stable as 1.70. I can run IBT fine at 3.2Ghz on 1.70 but on 1.50 and 1.60 it crashes almost immediately. I thought that the increased RAM speed was the culprit but a) I've run the Platinums @ 230 before with 0 issues on my HTPC and b) they passed memtest and WMDT so I think that the microcode uptades on 1.70 really help with stability.
I'll try the tools that lemonadesoda told us about to see if I can transmit the 5:4 div to 1.70.
I'd totally be interested in buying them =D depends on how much you're willing to sell them for =P
I'm getting a new hard drive soon and I'll just put programs and such on there, install another OS as a backup on the new drive and leave the OS on my previous drive that works.
If you could that with the 1.70 BIOS you'd be my hero Dx I'm currently running 250MHz FSB, 5:4, multiplier 12 so I'm only getting 3GHz for now but with the modded 1.70 I could run at 3.2 and with a new chipset cooler and other cooling products I'm getting I won't have to worry about heat so much =]
Which reminds me, should I PM you my mailing address for when you send that chipset cooler? =P
