The "jimmy rigged centris 650" topic got me in the mood to overclock something, so..call me crazy...I did some soldering on my 840av motherboard

I disabled the smt oscillator and soldered a 25mhz metal can osc on. It is definitely a little faster.

That would be a fantastic business opportunity, and if you were going to do that, I'd send you MY 840av to overclock, if I had it still :(
