awesome ill have to try that though i just found an asrock dual core vsta on local classifieds im going to buy. w the coolermaster v8 i just increased the clock to 18.
i swapped out the cooler master V8 for a more period correct zalman fs-c77 fatality i got super cheap its not quiet enough for the pentium extreme w its dual prescott cores(66* on occt after 3 mins) lol looks great though.

so with the new board, ddr2, and the hd 3650 the extreme agp scores 7246 on 3dmark 05 and 451 on nova bench vs 6842 on 3dmark 05 and 432 on nova bench with the asus p5p800-vm /7800gs/ddr400 yet to run the 7800gs in the system
system clocks are: cpu 3.4ghz(17Xclock), gpu 900mhz/ mem 555mhz ddr2, system ram 667mhz? ( weird readings on cpuz, bios says 667)
going to test this system with an e6600 cpu later
