To make matters more interesting, he got the FSBs, both of them, to more than 1700MHz. More than anything, this is a testament to the inherent goodness of the Seaburg chipset, it is driving eight cores at notably higher than it's rated speed. The only downside? 1.953v, a tad higher than the 'recommended' settings.
