My bios settings:
CPU ratio Settings - 8
FSB frequency - 400MHz
PCIE frequency - 100MHz
DRAM Frequency - DDR-800MHz
Load line Calibration - Enabled
CPU spread Spectrum - Disabled
PCIE Spread Spectrum - Disabled
CPUV: 1.325V
DRAMV: 1.90V
Thank you all for your help wink.gif

now try and get higher, as the max temp is 80.C, so you still have loads of headroom.
Bump the cpu coltage to 1.4v and try 420MHz, run Intel Burn Test for 20 passes on high ram, and if it passes, try 430MHz, just keep raising the FSB until it fails the test, then return it, to the last stable FSB wink.gif

3.2 GHz is good, because my GPU is old ( 260 GTX ) and is already bottlenecking my CPU so there is no sense to go higher.. Thank you anyway

I don't want to open a new topic so I'll ask here... So now I have decided to built a new computer, because this one is already too old for gaming. I need it the most for playing games and for web designing&coding. My budget limit is around 1200€ (1600$), but I like to spend less. In my mind I would take this:

Cpu: Intel i5 i2500k 3,3 GHz 202€
Motherboard: ASUS P8Z68-V/GEN3 156€
Ram: Corsair Vengeance 8GB 1600Mhz cl8 68€
Gpu: Radeon HD 7870 2GB 332€
SDD: Corsair Force Series GT 60GB 97€
PSU: Corsair TX 950W 147€
CPU cooler: Corsair A70 45€

= 1,050€ (1.342$)

HDD and Case I already have

But I don't know, should I buy 2x 6870 1GB instead of 7870 2GB or any other..I need the best performance for Battlefield 3. So what do you think?
