well, i got up to 740/1010 just now by raising my pci-ex bus frequency...my hypothesis is that since my mobo has no manual adjustment for the pci-ex bus voltage, that it auto adjusts voltage when i increase frequency...

so im at 103mhz pci-ex bus and I gained about 20mhz on the core, so Ill keep going up and post results

Wow thats great news. I wondered if this had any affect on overclocking and always locked it at 100mhz in the bios. I was afraid if it went too high it would fry something out.
