Not as of late but it seems like it might actually work...i am just wondering as to how much of a difference it will actually make on the system...where did you pick up on the CPU PLL idea?
I could google it but i am curious as to where you got it from
Well, I reserched it. It does help, It just takes a bit to dial it in. I knew where it was with my PII x4 810 but it's different for this 965BE C3.
Right now I'm not using it. I'm completely
CPU- 3.8Ghz (200 x19) @ 1.392v (Stock with vdroop)
CPU-NB- 2.6Ghz (200 x13) @ 1.25v
Ram- 1.6Ghz (1:4) CL6-6-6-18-1T @ 2.02v (no DDR-PHY)
HT Link 2Ghz @ 1.2v (Stock)
Will be Keeping those ram speeds and timings and Working on my CPU-NB and then my CPU frequencies... 1.6ghz Ram @ CL6 has a nice sweet spot @ 2.9Ghz+ CPU-NB...
So until I start having issues with stability, I most likely won't use it. It's kind of like the CPU DDR-PHY for the Ram. It's probably better implemented with higher Frequencies.

I hear you there. I want to get another Sapphire VAPOR-X 5770 for CF. They run so cool that it makes sense. PLus, with the way that they scale.... Wow.
I'm gong to get a larger Radiator as well. Mine is single 120mm And I would like to get at least a double. Swiftech Make some really cool Stackable Radiators in double fan size. So you could purchase one, run it for a while and then add a second one behind it with a fans in between and one the back and front. Very cool design.

It is partially natural for the Mhz to jump around in between a 1 -2Mhz Window. Anything above and beyond that may be from either having the "Spread Spectrum" option enabled while OCing or because of Major EMI in your local area... Rare but is a possible factor...
