Aborted overclocking attempt

Did some cooling tweaking and overclocking over the weekend and received the following results using 1.85 volts in the core:


These temperatures were taken while running at 100% load for 30 minutes. I didn’t bother taking idle temps, but I’m interested to see how fast the cooling loop drops to a base temp when the processor is at idle.

Weird how CPUID measures the processor speed at 1596MHZ and Motherboard Monitor measures it at 1598. I’ll go with the higher number, methinks.

My machine would post at 1606MHz and a few higher, but Win2k would either freeze or BSOD at the splash screen. I suspect that the AHA-19160 SCSI controller doesn’t like running at a PCI bus speed of 38MHz.
