Good choice, if you can wait until DX10 arrives, I suggest you do. (New series of GPU's.)

I'd also suggest the Thermaltake Big Typhoon VX as another option for air cooling.

I'm not sure how the P5LD2 is different from the P5WD2-Premium but for the basic overclock it all is pretty much the same so, fallow some of these steps:

Quote:
Few overclocking tips for the P5WD2-Premium:

Configure System Frequency/Voltage:

1-AIoverclocking set to "manual"
2-CPU Frequency is where you can change the fsb of your CPU. Start @ 250.
3-DRAM Frequency is where the fsb of the RAM is. Set @ DDR2-830 for a 3:5 Ratio.

4-Performance Mode set to: Auto
5-PCI Express Frequency, set to: 105
6-PCI Clock Synch Mode, set to: 33.33MHZ

7-Memory Voltage: 2.1v or 2.2v
8-CPU Voltage Core: 1.4125<--Leave to AUTO if 250fsb is what you'll use.
9-fsb leave at AUTO
10-MCH Chispet voltage, set to: 1.55v <---leave to AUTO if 250fsb.
11-ICH leave at AUTO.

Advance CPU settings:


1-Microcide: Enabled
2-Max CPUID: Enabled
3-Execute Disabled Function: Enabled
4-Enahanced C1 Control: Enabled
5-CPU Internal Thermal Control: Enabled (if 300fsb+ set to: Disabled)

6-HTT: Enabled
7-EIST: Automatic (if 290fsb+ set to: Diasabled)

Advanced Shipset Settings:

1-Cinfigure Dram Timings By SPD: Disabled
2-Set to 4-4-4-12-4
3-DRAM ECC Mode: Disabled
4-Hyper Path 3: Enabled (if 250fsb+ set to: Disabled)
5-DRAM Throttling Threshold: AUTO
6-Boot Graphics Adapter Priority: PCI-Express/PCI

Some other things I do is to disabled the 2nd PCI-Express LAN, the SATA Link controller and ITE Controller. Sound I also do because I have an Audigy Card. Parallel and Serial ports are also disabled.

USB 2.0 is set to full speed for the highest transfer data possible.

The settings I suggested are for 250fsb but you can and will reach a higher fsb with the Big Typhoon, maybe 275fsb. But remember that at 275fsb, RAM at a 3:5 ratio will be at DDR2 966 speeds and maybe you'll have to lower the RAM to a 3:4 ratio.

If it's not exactly the same, it gives you an idea of how and where to start.

thanks wankerfx, i'll check out the big typhoon vx, but where do i buy it? i live in canada, and when is the dx10 gfx cards coming out?. Nasgul does that configuration go the same way for my P5LD2 mobo.

I'm not sure if it's the same config but it's just to give you an idea of how things work, check your BIOS for the settings that you may need to change.

I highly suggest you get a notepad and write the info in paper that way you can keep track of the overclocking settings that worked and didn't work. And remember, don't start with CAS3 for the ram timings, usually the best choice is 4-4-4-8 or 4-4-4-12 with a 2.1v or 2.2v
