Yep - it works. FSB starts at 1333 - so far I adjusted to 1343. What are some good increments to try? And thanks!

When I'm feeling out a new chip I'll normally go up by 10s, and then drop to incriments of 5 when it starts getting close.

So far I have made it to 1393 - not very far, but I don't have a lot of time for this. I don't see any difference in the cpu score though. I bet it will go much higher - but I will persist in going up only 10 at a time and see where that leads in the next month or so. After I boot up I always have to game a bit before the next reboot, so this might take awhile. :)

Hmm - getting no post after 1493 - I wonder if there is a "recipe" one can follow for these 750i motherboards?
