Chaintech ZNF3-150 ZENITH mobo and an AMD 64 3200+ ATHLON processor

Anyone running a 64 bit processor yet? I am just building a system (for me this time!) with a Chaintech ZNF3-150 ZENITH mobo and an AMD 64 3200+ ATHLON processor. I am using a Cascade Waterblock.

Anyone else have any experience here?

Man, this thing screams. It topped out at 230 overclock. It's running at 2.9v memory and 1.7v at the processor. It's rock stable there and anything over that it won't boot windows. I'm using Corsair 3200 Xtreme memory now but will try some Buffalo 3700 with Winbond chips later. At this speed it runs at 47 C on die temp with a Cascade waterblock. The screenshot is with Seti running 100%. The other temps don't seem right from MBM as the board isn't listed yet. I did a reboot after running overnight at 230 and Seti and looked in PC Health Status.
Specs:
Clawhammer 64 3200+ at 2300 MHz
Chaintech ZNF3-150 ZENITH
Antec Performance Plus1080AMG
Cathar's Cascade Waterblock
Arctic Silver - Ceramique
1024 MB CORSAIR XMS DRAM 32MX8 PC-3200 CAS 2
2 WD Raptor 36 GB SATA RAID 0
MAXTOR 30 GB 133 ATA
WD 80GB 100 ATA
DVD+RW +R Sony DW-U10A-10
VGA PROLINK GF 5900-128 MB
ViewSonic 19" LCD VP191b
P C Power & Cooling 400 Silencer

Nice, can we see some memory benchmarks? I am really curious how an overclocked onchip memory controller performs.

Here are some screenshots. First one is with Buffalo Memory with Winbond BH5 chips. I shows as 2700 memory...supposed to be 3700 memory! Anyway, the post is at 235MHz, but the memory is running at reduced rate (196MHz)
The second is with Geil 3200 and it's running at 230MHz with tight timings and the clock speed is 230 over. The last screen is showing some SETI stats, they are impressive. Anything under 2 hours per work unit is better than anything I have ever done!
I'll run Sandra and see what this Geil can do.
