With that board there's a bunch of things you can do to get better performance out of even 800 MHz RAM: slight oc, lower the Performance Level Static tRead Value), open the fsb up....

I'll have to dig around for the threads but, for 775 Intel rigs, more MHz on the RAM has shown better results than a straight 1:1 ratio. Don't worry about the 1:1 for right now. That's an amazing motherboard you have there capable of super high fsb's... I say go further on the fsb--as far as you can go--then see exactly how fast that RAM is capable of running, while being stable.

Do you have a link for your particular RAM? If I were a wagering man, I'd bet that you could get, at the very least, 1000 MHz out of those sticks and still be stable.

Here's the thread for these UD3's, there's a ton of good information there and a bunch of people that know these boards inside-and-out.

#1 Have you checked how far that chip can go fsb wise?
#2 How are the temps at 2.95?
#3 You aren't satisfied with 2.95 are you..? lol

You can go further if you'd like to.
