Hmmm... no I have not. I was not aware fully of the FSB issue in the range 360-399. Is it possible for you to explain more why 400Mhz would be more stable than 360-399? I assume it has something to do with stepping in the NB chip but am curious. I guess to humor the idea I can take the multiplier of the CPU down so I can raise the FSB to 400 and see if its stable that way. Worth a shot I guess! Before I had the multiplier down but never went up near 400Mhz on the FSB thinking I had hit its limit much lower. From what you are saying I might have been close or in the unstable range.
