I was able to do a little overclocking with this CPU. I think the CoolerMaster cooler was not quite up to the job, to be honest, as I found the system more stable when using a Sunon 80mm fan in place of the supplied one. As mentioned earlier, the retail CPUs you will see in on the shelf will be boxed with a higher-rated heatsink and fan than the one we're using today. With the Sunon fan installed and bearing in mind this CPU is one of only very few in the country and there is a queue of other people wanting to get their hands on it, I was only willing to take the CPU to 1.65v, .1v above default. There is no capacity for multiplier adjustment on this motherboard, but in this configuration we were able to get the CPU to run 3DMark2001SE at 215MHz FSB or 2365MHz core speed, producing a score of 20467 3DMark2001SE marks. This is a fairly typical result for a debut CPU and expect the overclocking headroom to expand as the yield goes up over time......................

Hehe, I have a Zalman, and cooling don't really do much to your FPS, unless your videocard is absolutely TOO hot that it causes problems (which is generally not the case). I had a few sunon's before, but I would make them run at 12v instead of 5v. They would cool really well - but the machines were noisy! (which don't matter to me too much). My room would sound like the server room at work. I had 4 x 80mm sunon's at 12v in my rig alone. Then there was the ISDN dialer and the better half PC too.

If there was no sound - I could not sleep - it was too quiet
