Using a DFI LP NF4 Ultra-D and SLI-D Motherboards, 2* 256Mb PC3200 DDR1 Winbond BH-5 Memory Modules and a Tagan 520W Power Supply, a 100% overclock was achieved on an AMD Athlon 64 Socket 939 3000+ Venice using 10kg of Dry Ice and Copper Tubing for extreme cooling.

The 3000+ has a default operating speed of 1800Mhz, on air cooling they easily managed 2800MHz and eventually switching to dry ice, they ended up with a final result of 3603Mhz which translates into a 100% overclock.

The Ultra-D and Sli-D allow you to set the memory async to the FSB, so you can run your CPU at high speed while keeping the memory speed in spec, the current dividers offered are 100/133/166/200, the DFI Expert adds one more, 143Mhz; which comes in handy with these BH-5 Winbond modules. Swapping the 2×256 for 2x512Mb sticks can also increase performance? but overall with the gear I had to work with the results obtained today were not disappointing.
