Well my setting is 267 Mhz for the processor, I use 133Mhz for the memory and HT is 3X
Sometimes I set 250 Mhz for the processor, 166Mhz memory set and HT to 4x.

I increaseed the Proc's voltage to 1.375.

For the SSE3 it is not recognized in native mode with 10.4.6.

Thank you for reply.
For your convenience, I uploaded a small windows utility which helps to find a correct fsb/multiplier ratio.
Here: http://rapidshare.de...helper.zip.html

My settings:
Cpu:270/9x @1.325v memory 150@2,5volts HTT:4x with DFI board

If you set your memory to 133 you can go up to 290 on CPU fsb @1,4 volts .

Anyways thank you for specifying how you use SSE3, because was a enigma for me..:)

Update: Cpu 280/10x @1,350v memory 140/2,5v HTT:3 = 2,8Ghz on Opteron170

PCI slots in Win XP are shown and working, I have no probs with audio either in Mac OS and Win XP (any of the 3 cards I had installed, well 2 soundcard and the external usb sound)

Same cooler here, also I modified a Vantec IceberQ ( not Pro!) Vga cooler for chipset cooling...I think is the best solution for chipset cooling since I have 2 pcie slots SLI, and the chipset is between them, also is flat enough to do not be in videocard's way...
