You're wrong, the k7mnf-64 has a modded bios that's capable of setting the FSB at any value between 100Mghz and 300Mghz, memory timing, memory frequency, allows values over 128MB for AGP Size, allows various other things. The modded bios also allows you to set auto-shutdown at 60, 65, or 70 Degrees C, so your computer doesn't get damaged if your cooling isn't good enough. This bios also allows you to use Clockgen to overclock, rather than overclocking in the bios.
If you want the modded bios, Email me at email@example.com
, and I'll send it to you.
It's what I'm using now
EDIT: Sorry for anyone that emailed me looking for the bios, some of them got lost but I think I covered everyone that asked. Since the FSB of that processor is clocked to 166GHZ, it can't go any higher unless you pinmod the proccessor to achieve a higher VCORE. With a higher VCORE you can bring the FSB to around 185, but be warned, bringing it this high will cause amazing amounts of heat, so stock cooling isn't enough. If you don't mind a little noise, take off the side of your case and place a house fan there (if you can't afford/don't want to pay for cooling, like me =P) A good running tempurature is usually below 60 Celsius at load. The lower the better. I suggest somewhere around 55Celsius as your top tempurature while using 100% of your CPU's processing power (such as video conversions, playing games, etc., where the processor is being used.)
