modded bios that aloow u to disable spread sectrum and auto detect dimms

crystal orb on nbridge, btw this crystal orb looks liek a very nice improvment on teh blorb.

wing fin heatsinks on the raid controller and sbridge

waiting for compound to dry/finish before testing, did find that the nbridge heatsink had little thermal paste on it and was not firmly attached!

I epoxied a retail Intel HS onto my northbridge and put a 80mm fan over the HS and the MOSFETS to the left of it, you REALLY need to cool those MOSFETS, they get pretty warm even @ default settings

metal oxide semi-conductor field effect transistor

they are to the left of the northbridge and below the zif socket,there is like 6 of them,square and black.

they get VERY HOT!,cooling the clock generatror should help u get a few MHZ on the FSB but yours is really close to the AGP slot so i dint know how u could cool it or put a heatsink on it.
BTW what was holding u back on your bus speed

I've been talking to yard frequently and I believe It was his power supply. He is very happy with his new 400 watt sparkle :)
I'm having the same problem I think. On the lookout for a cheap 400 watt supply :)

Freckmoto: Check out the jnc power supply. Dunno how its stability is though. otherwise go for the enermax 431w

putting a heatsink on teh little mosfets would do?

matt, i replaced my psu with a 400watt sparkle adn got the kingmax tiny bga ddr333mhz, 5ns ram, and addedheatsinks to all chips and a crystal orb on teh nb, though its fan doesnt go it is better than teh abit cooling., all that seemed to help

heatsinks would be fine,they make special heatsinks for mosfets,trying to find some
