@Massman: I don't have enough money to spend on new hardware, but maybe I'll go the cheap oc style like piotke
Btw, no OC'ing today because it's my birthday

Thank you very much.
My birthday gifts to myself:
-Another 3d mark score
-A temporary drivers license
3.2Ghz worked now (400*8)
I gave it 1.4125 vcore and it did what it had to do (kind of... but I'll explain that later) I also changed the fan configuration a bit (geoffry said something about cooling the northbridge may be getting hot, so I had some testing to do)
during the previous benches, I laid the 'exhaust fan' (the black box above the gfx card on the pictures) on the cpu heatsink, blowing some air to the northbridge. Today I did some testing with my fans, and I noticed it doesn't moves that much air. --> 2 fans vertically on the heatsink and the exhaust fan, so they blew fresh air to the mosfets, northbridge and gfx card.
hmm, not that much marks as I hoped it would be, especially when you look to the previous results....
second run (I changed the GPUcore to 860 Mhz, GPUmem to 1200Mhz using rivatuner)
Notice that GPU-Z doesn't detect the correct speeds (or arent the speeds set when I don't restart???)

And for today the (last) runs:
Booted @ 410*8 1.4v in bios (I want to keep it safe because I still need this pc for school) than I used setFSB to raise the FSB to 425Mhz (430 didn't work, and I don't have enough time to test FSB's between 425 and 430, or higher vcores)
For tomorrow: I won't be able to continue, since I'm coming home around 10 pm, and I've got to get up around 7 am the next morning.
Good luck too all the others for the last day!!
