take it easy there, chief.
that was a pretty subtle analogy if i've ever seen one.
i do know what an analogy is, and i also know A LOT is two words. lol.
i guess i just didnt catch the analogy between a graphics card and a motherboard. apologies.
original poster, you say you have to really up the voltage to get to 3.0
what voltage do you have to use? i am just curious...i can get my 4200 to 2.7+ with a slight vcore increase. to stabilize at 2.75 i need 1.45 or 1.475 i cant remember which.
i have upped the vcore to 1.6 and can post close (so close) to 3.0ghz. but my abit will not let me go higher than 299 bus speed, and i have to use a x9 multi to get that. at x10, i cant go quite that high, but overall closer to 3ghz. so, either it is my mobo or my psu. i dunno?
i would look at the dfi lanparty ut dude it is supposed to be the boss hogg of am2 overclockers.
if you get it, let me (us) know how it works out. actually, do that no matter which board you get!
