    If you wanna buy a new mobo and proc, you must take into consideration that you will need faster ram, so you need another 150$

    hiro speedfan isnt really used to speed fans up most of the time its used for overclocking and the fans should be running at 100% anyway speedfan can decrease them to save power. u can use speedfan to change the frequency's of your ram,cpu or just by increasing the chipset fequency. what u need to do is run the programe then go on the clock tab then enter ur motherboards manufature and the model, and also theres timeing setting that should detect itself but probly not in all cases so research if not sure. then from that u will get a list of possible frequency's u can use .

    for example to name a few

    cpu 133.3 chipset 33.3 ram 133.3
    133.9 33.5 133.9
    137.3 34.3 133.7
    138 34.5 138

    those are the actual timeings that work stable with mine theres a fare few more that also. these overclockes are really only done on the chipset thus multiplying the cpu and ram in affect. there was a nice performance gain from 133.3 to 138mhz. it also has timeings that dont change the chipset speed and only overclock the ram and cpu say

    cpu 133.3 chipset 33.3 ram 133.3
    to
    cpu 166 chipset 33.3 ram 166

    notice the chipset has stayed the same but yet ram and cpu has been overclocked but only if your hardware can handel that mine cant atall.

    is any1 useing a pentium 3gig 533fsb chips id like to know its performance it might be in my next comp.

    guys 2.4 is enough for him. I have 9800 pro, 768 ram, 2.4ghz and it runs amazing. no lag and great fps in all games at max. EVEN FAR CRY, GOD I LOVE ATI.
