So my week 44 cheapie processor finally came in and I was able to just start
messing around with it today. I used Easytune to ramp up the FSB to get an
idea of where my proc was at. I started off at 200 and got up to only 9x283
(2550MHz) before Orthos started immediately erroring. Hmm... disappointing.

So I thought about all those posts I saw about FSB walling and decided to
drop the multi to 8 and up the FSB. I must have ended up in a higher strap
because the FSB kept going up and up until XP BSOD'ed. It crashed at 8x386
(3088MHz )and I flipped over the multi back to 9. Crashed again at 3070MHz.
Looking good... it seems I've found my proc's limit. 3G's was my target and
it's nice to have found it so quickly. I notice too that the power
consumption at the wall is quite relatively low compared to the old AthXP
150W load.

Currently I'm pushing the PC6400 memory to see if it can handle a 12% OC @
900MHz while the CPU is hovering at 1350MHz. Seems to be doing okay at this
point. Will report results
