230mhz FSB?? that's how i started out also. are you running a memory divider or is your RAM at 230MHz too. just curious.

anyways, is it the san diego core. it OC's pretty well. what motherboard are you using?

Be sure to stress test that sh*t alot. S&M is good for bringing it up to max temp. Prime95 I like for overnight stress tests.

Sounds like you have a winner!
