did it ever happend to you guys?
Heh, nothing's fair when it comes down to who gets their hands on a primo chip... :)

Keep in mind too that jody plays with the big boys in benching circles so he's already done the hard work of finding the sweet spot of his hardware.

As far as the issue you're describing goes... I've only experienced that with overvolting some memory, but I have had procs which didn't react well to extra voltage at all.
