You said you loaded defaults? What's that mean?

K, let's start with the very basic with that system there:

Pentium D 945 can easily be overclocked to 4.20ghz (250x17) with the stock CPU voltage.

RAM? The ram should read DDR2 500 (Memory Frequency 500mhz) when you overclock your CPU to 250mhz or fsb whichever way says in your DS3

RAM should be with a minimum of 2.1v and timings of 4-4-3-10.

The rest should be at the default settings your board came with.

See this BIOS SS of the DS3 and you'd get an idea: http://www.pcper.com/article.php?aid...e=expert&pid=4
