Some of you may remeber my post on the other board about not being able to reach 133 FSB with my P3 800E and P3 750E both being cb0s on a CUSL2. Well I could get them to both run at 132 FSB. I thought that was too damn freaky and felt it was the mobo or RAM holding me back. Well I bought an AOpen AX3S Pro, Alpha PEP66, stick of Crucial 133 cas2, and an Antec case. I'll be damned, those CPUs won't do 133 FSB in it either! I'm not gonna do the pelt thing because I always seem to get some condensation. Welp I guess you can't win em all. I must say though the Aopen board is really nice. Kind of a toss up as to which one I like best between the Asus and Aopen. I now have the 800 running at 976 and the 750 running at 900. Also for anyone wondering, the PEP66 will not fit on the Aopen board, there are capacitors and coils all around the socket. My PAL6035 fits fine though. The PEP66 is now on the CUSL2 and works nicely.

I got the 750 running at 1Ghz on the CUSL2! I did it using one of these:

and some of this:

BAM 1Ghz... It seems the clock generator was getting too hot. I slapped one of those sinks on the lil bastard and now it seems to be working fine. For those who are curious, the clock gen is right beside the dip switches. If you're not sure if you are looking at the right thing, touch it, then you'll know which one to put the sink on. ;)
