be sure to drop your HT too when you crank on your HTT

For Best performance or outcome you will want the HT at 3x . And yes the 165 has a Multi of 9x.

Wrong thread. The 165 is dual core.

eh, you dont need to drop your HTT multi to 3xs with that low of HTT or FSB. Only drop your htt multi if your FSB is over 260 , you want to keep your HTT FREQ between 1000 and 1060. If you go over 260 fsb or htt, im old school i call it FSB. Then you want to drop it to 3x. Also when upping the FSB you may need to up the volts to your chipset.

the opty won't run as high of HT so he needs to drop it to 3x, maybe even 2.5x if he wants to stay stable he will have to drop it to 3x. my friend learn about your opty procs

you don't even need 1000 HT anyways. its like having 6 cars on a 6 lane highway. you can make it wider, but its not going to make information go any faster....

Here's what I did:

Set your RAM divider at 150

Set your RAM timings to stock (auto usually works but isn't as effective performance-wise)

Set your CPU voltage (also known as vcore)to stock (mine's @ 1.32 volts)

Set your HTT multiplier to 3x

Set your HTT frequency to 200

Set your CPU multiplier to 9x

Boot into windows and run some kind of stress test like Prime 95 for a few minutes (30 min.'s give or take), it is VERY important to make sure it is running both cores independantly. To do this You will need to run 2 Prime 95 applications (1 for each core). Let me know if you need help with this as it is kinda tricky and if you don't know how to do it you probably won't do it right.

If it doesen't throw any errors, reboot and start upping the HTT frequency. It'd be safe to say you could start at 250 and move up in 5-10mhz increments, but safest way is to start @ 200 and move up from there. Make sure to Prime95 it for a while between each change. Make sure to take your time with this and go slowly.

When you reach a point you feel is fast enough or you feel is the max for your CPU, Prime 95 it for at least 8 hours. If it doesen't have any problems, you could raise the HTT frequency more until it starts showing problems.

You may need to raise your vcore if problems arise, but I expect it should do AT LEAST 2.6 GHZ (288 HTT frequency) on the stock vcore.

Let me know if you have any questions, I'll be here for at least the next hour or so.

Kaxx, I'm sorry but I don't know where to find the ram divider, I can't find it, or I may not recognize it when I see it.
Also, my CPU is set for 9X, but I can't find my HTT multiplier to set it to 3X.
My FSB is at 231, and stable, but I've not run prime yet, not ready for it I think.
I'm feeling very noobish right now.

too complicated. go google a program called Orthos.

your HT settings should be in the menu where you find your CPU multi and everything else. It'll say like HT something or HyperTransport.

I'm not sure on your board where it is at, you may need to go into all of your BIOS options to find it. Perhaps someone else here cn help you with that.

Look for DRAM settings, DRAM frequency, DRAM divider, etc. It's in there somewhere. The options for it may be 1:2, 1:1, etc. OR they might be 133, 150, 166, 180, etc. Be sure to look in ALL of your BIOS options.

This is a good one as well, but I'm not sure whether forums allow you to use this for socket 939's in case you want to put this in the overclocking database. Mostly used for socket AM2's, but I haven't checked in a while.
