I am going to be ordering my 1.7 Dothan off ebay today or tommorow, My laptop is going to be here monday, and I should have a guide up by the end of next week hopefully.. Unless someone wants to overnight me a spare 1.7 :P
i think that some 855 chipsets can do 533, but they sense the bclk pins instead of the bsel i believe. i'm not sure how exactly those pins work. the tech sheets dont document those much
also, could someone with a real pm 760 (2.0) chime in with what their default vcore is? because if it's the same as that of the pm 715 (1.5), there's no reason at all why an overclocked 715 would be any different at all from a 760. and if dell uses the same heatsink, then it should function in that respect identically as well.
and if the vcore on the 760 is higher than that of the 715, then more power to you! you have a cooler running 760 and itll have longer batt life than a true 760, and it should be stable still. intel puts a lot of buffer into these.
