The 1.73 volt setting corresponds to a 5% bump in the Vcore setting. For all tests, the Vio was set to a 5% bump to 3.55 volts. Still, I'm very impressed with the stability of this combo. Not only does the RAM do 150MHz with no sweat, the CPU is stable at a 50% overclock too. But, I wouldn't recommend running your combo at max Vcore anyway as that's similar to running your car engine near redline. I've settled on 1008MHz at 1.73 volts for my setup. Because this is a CPU/MB/RAM review, I've chosen not to include 3D benchmarks. Rest assured that those benchmarks will crop up in my next video card review.

If you look closely, the Win98SE chip temps are slightly lower than the DOS test temps. This is due to the side panel being on and the S500's fabulous air circulation properties. The interior case temp was only 2°F above the ambient air temp--that's gotta be some sort of record. No other cooling was used.

WinTune is anything but an accurate benchmarking suite for different platforms (i.e. Athlon vs. Intel); however, within the same platform, it's very accurate. At 150MHz FSB, we have integer capabilities exceeding 3 GIPS.
