    That might explain the random crashes I have been getting with this rig.... Still working all of the bugs out before I O/C any higher. How much voltage can these bartons handle?

    i wouldnt know because ive always aircooled, problem is possibly the core may become brittle, also the extreme cold mixed with room temperature could cause moisture buildup thus frying the chip, but sure go ahead and try it, but id recommend a 3rd party bios, PC 3500-4800 DDR, and better cooling for the NB and SB, and also cooling for the VRMs and other chips that may get hot.

    I think I may still have my SN45G profile for SpeedFan - I'll have a bash at looking for it when I'm home.

    UPDATE: What motherboard are you using Craig? No wait, I've found your previous post. Unfortunately I can't find a profile for your board, only the nForce 3 version. Wonder if that would work... o_O

    Just found this club and wanted to say hello. :)

    Devout Socket A fan here. So much so that I just cant bring myself to move to the dual/quad cores when my Athlon XP still does everything I need.

    So hello to all the Socket A fans out there. Good to know Im not the only one left. :toast:

    Actually, no. I have 3 Athlon XP cores. 1 XP2200 and 2 3200. I have been toying with the idea of OC'ing one of the 3200's though. Think I still have the guide stashed somewhere. The one thing holding me back atm is getting better case cooling and a better CPU cooler.

    whats the clock rate the CPU is at, also a major suggestion, use a IR thermometer gun and shoot the CPU and NB.

    Right, my 2GB DDR500 arrived today. So, if I get time this week I'll have a bash at OC'ing my old XP-M 2400+.... MUHAHAHAHAHA!

    I have a thermal sensor on the case (not sure how accurate it is) I placed that right into the heatsink of the northbridge and highest that reads is 40 deg. I will have to aquire one of those guns.
