I dunno if i should increase the ram voltage to 2.0V+ to accommodate the OC, but the 675 sticks are definitely a burden.
I tried setting my timing to 4-4-4-12 and system refused to boot. SIGH
K, that RAM is great for me, for up to 442mhz, which I have in my 2nd rig.......and 2.0v? That's never good for when overclocking. You should use at least a 2.20v.
For the P5W-DH which can do 400fsb on a 1:1, try setting the RAM with a 4-4-4-12 and 2.20v or 2.30v, the Vc should be either 1.55 or 1.60v.
There's a feature in the P5W-DH that you'd need to turn off, it's called: HyperPath 3, disabled it, and this is in the "advance chispet settings"
Also in the section: : "Configure System Frequency/Voltage", there's a couple of things you'd need to do, for example, lock the pci frequencies to 101 and 33.33mhz and also the Performance Mode Set To: should be AUTO.
Finally, in "Advance CPU settings", you should disable C1E and Intel SpeedStep, I think CPU Internal Thermal Control disabled as well.
So, try that. And remember, RAM at 2.20v or even the 2.30v.
