Upgraded the bios to CheepoBios and managed to push my Athlon 1800 from 1.53ghz to 1.69 ghz. Not too bad for a board that doesn't overclock. My computer thinks I have an Athlon 2000 now. Even got to get my DDR running at 2-2-4. Just ran 3DMark... Got 10248 with the Ti4600 at normal settings (300/650), anf 10762 with it overclocked to 320/760. It's not a big difference, so I probably won't leave the Ti4600 overclocked.

My CPU temp climbed from 45 degrees to 49-51 degrees now that it's overclocked, I don't know if I wanna leave it running that hot. I just think it's funny that I was able to O/C on an ECS board, even if it is minimal.

My cable connection is pretty good . It's the only thing the cable company out here can get right.

I think I did pretty well considering you're not supposed to be able to overclock an ECS motherboard AT ALL. The CheepoBios is still kinda new, so not all the kinks have been worked out yet. I should be able to push it higher in the future, although I am not getting my hopes up. We'll see...
