Thanks for the advice...I'll keep that in mind. I fully realize that when doing things such as overclocking a system that you are taking chances. I'm sitting here looking at an old GeForce 3 Ti 200 that had a little OC'ing accident a long time ago. I just like to push things...ask my parents or my wife...they'll be happy to agree. I just have this nuts desire to tinker...I don't know why...I've always been that way. I just couldn't be happy with my toys when I was a child even...I had to take them apart and try to do other things with them as well. I'm not one of these peeps that's gonna cry and moan if something doesn't go according to plan. The way I see it...you've got to be willing to take the risk that you will totally hose up something every once in while...and if you can't stomach the thought of that happening...don't do it!

Yeah...I think I'm going to remove the resistors with a hot pair of tweezers...I've done some similar work like that before and it worked well for me then...so I think that's the way I'll go. I'll give the 1.58 a shot...It's not like you can't go back so long as you keep the thing cool...in all my years I can honestly say...I've never fried a CPU due to heat. Of course...I usually take great care in the area of cooling so I'm sure that's saved my bacon on a great number of occasions. I'll likely give it a shot this weekend and I'll let you all know how it turns out.
