As far as I can see there is no damage done to my cpu or mobo. Possibility of having a relatively strong chip?

80C for extended periods of time will damage your chip. If you really feel like putting that on the line then go for it. If not, then listen to what we say. 60C, no more.

Is using FSB really better? when I unlock cpu host control so I can change the fsb I get a warning that system voltages are not opptimzed. In flashing red text too. Scary...

Upped multiplier to 18.5 now on 1.40 cpu core

You get that warning anytime you mess with system voltages anyways. That is just their way of saying you are messing with crucial system settings, continue at your own risk.

Make sure you aren't super overclocking your memory while you are doing this or your system will be unstable no matter how much voltage you pump through the CPU.

System restarted during windows 7 sysclassification test. Switched back the multiplier to 17 and upped the fsb to 212.

This too. You will probably have to up your Dimm voltage a little as well while you increase the FSB clock.

I dont see a setting called dimm voltage. System bsod'd again during prime95

Do you have the C2 or C3 revision? 3.60ghz (x18 multiplier) shouldn't be that hard to achieve. I believe most chips should be able to get to 3.6ghz on around 1.4v. Here are my specs..

CPU: 3.8ghz on 1.4375v
NB: 2600mhz on 1.25v

Each chip is different though. Just make sure you don't go over 1.55v and 60C.
