    Ooh, good luck. I've got the same CPU and same board as you, and they OC nicely. I just had to back mine off because my appartment gets hot hot hot in the summer.

    What do you have FSB/multi at on yours? My board is a 1.04 revision, soon to get the latest BIOS for the XP3200+ ;).

    GHoosdum, my A7N8X-Dlx is the same rev as yours and has the A2 northbridge. I'm running a 2500+ at 187 X 12.5 on my board as it isn't stable at all running a 200 fsb, no matter what multi I have selected, thus taking the overclock out of the equation. My highest stable fsb for my board is 187-188. This is with the latest bios rev also.

    It arrived via FedEx today. I will check it out and see if I can get a 200FSB... I hope I can, otherwise my next five weeks of PC savings are going toward an nF2 ultra board!

    I'm not too crazy about Shuttle... I was planning on getting another A7N8X-DLX board if I have to... but I'd get an nF2 Ultra one this time...

I just got one in yesterday to replace my Asus board with; that's going to be my weekend project.;) The board is damn nice and comes with a good assortment of accessories too, including a serillel adapter to put an IDE hard drive on onw of the SATA channels.

    I have the box sitting on my desk... so close yet so far away! I've got a week of exams at school now so I have no idea when I'll be able to install the Barton. Carp! :banghead:

    Hrm... I don't buy Abit anymore... ever since my sister's PCChips board outlived my Abit board... when the Abit was not OC'd, not undercooled, not pushed to the limit in any way. :wtf:

    I only buy Asus these days. :thumbsup:

    /me :respect: Asus!
