    UD flys at 1544 MHz.!

    For most of this year I've been fighting temps on my Athlon 1.4 while running UD. It heats up to the mid 50's... Till I went to an 80mm fan adapter and now it runs UD at 46 to 48... and allows me to overclock over 1.5 gig. Cool! This rig sure can chew up UD units quickly at this speed...

    How to speed up wu's?
