But how come my 2.40C can run 287, 5:4, 2-3-2-5 on the P4P800 and P4P800 and only do 279, 5:4 on the Epox boards? And I've tried two 4PDA2+s and four 4PCA3+s. I did get up to 282, 5:4 on one 4PDA2+ board.

Also, the 280 fsb limit is a well-known issue with every motherboard out there except the Asus boards (I know as I've tested over a dozen boards by Abit, DFI, MSI, Gigabyte, AOpen, Asus). Hipro over at Extreme can do 371 fsb but he still sees the 5:4 cap at around 270-280 fsb on his Abit board. It does seem the people on phase change are immune to it.
