- Athlon 64 Overclocking

Curious about Athlon 64 and overclocking? Lost Circuits take an Athlon 64 3200+ and ASUS K8V motherboard with newest BIOS for a spin and see just what they can get from the new 64-bit processor.

After the somewhat disappointing overclocking experience with the initial BIOS revision of the ASUS K8V and the Athlon64 3200+, we used the latest production BIOS Rev. 1003 that, amongst other new features allows manual changing of the frequency and voltage ID (FID and VID). Overall, the new BIOS greatly increases stability as well as overclocking potential, after all, we were able to crank up the speed to 240 MHz and run 100% stable at 235 MHz.

- Lian Li meets VapoChill

Sabien from a town near Overclockers Australia modded his Lian Li case to fit the phase change cooling from a VapoChill unit.

WOCAU has a nice reader project posted today. Tired with the look of his VapoChill Classic, Sabien hacked up a Lian Li tower to accomodate the phase-change cooling system. While he was at it, he watercooled a few components too.
