Upping your FSB ups your ram.

For example, if your FSB is 230, then your ram would be running (overclocked) at DDR460 (230 x 2 = 460). Seeing as how the memory isn't rated for DDR460 speeds, it could cause some problems

Setting your memory speed to DDR333 (aka 5/6th divider), would bring that DDR460 down to DDR383 speeds. While this is slightly lower than stock DDR400 speeds, the increase in CPU frequency would more than make up for the small memory hit.

They pushed it up to 2.9v but you still have it currently running past DDR500 speeds and beating them, SWEET!
Drop down the default DDR400 setting and you will find much more room to OC the CPU!

Make sure it's stable too! Run memtest86 on it!

Check out the link, some great info on timings ans it's OCability, if that is your RAM You already seem to have beat them in the OCIng of it already

Just curious, how much volts on the RAM now?
Thanks Duke and Fatal05, gonna call it a nite, but with this info I should be able to knock down that tree tomorrow evening.
Wheeeeeee!

Wow, I love this board! Now if I only knew how to drive the chip.
I think the only pertinant info not in the screen shot is:
Memclock is 166, and K8 to N. bridge is 3X. I have had it to boot up to 2.8+, but not stable running Orthos.
My question is, how to go farther?
