It's become very apparent to me that these boards a a lot different from the other intel chipset boards because they won't max boot as high as the others but hang with the pack just fine at max primable FSB.

I have active cooling on my NB with only 42C load temps. I found that my board likes the cas4 setting way more than 5 and that's all fine with me. 4-4-4-12 at 846Mhz is better than TCCD at 3-4-4-10 at DDR600 by a long shot. WHat divider are you using? 400? 1:1 is the best as far as high FSB goes. What people doesn't seem to understand about OCing memory is that you don't think of things as 'looser or tighter' there is only 'what the rigs wants and what the rig doesn't want'.
yea, i tried 400 and 533(like you suggested)
i disabled everything that im not using, but left things disabled if i didnt know what they were.
im running 2.28ghz right now... fsb 325.
i also reapplied the AS5 to the nb cooler, running 2C cooler according to my bios. it passes prime95 perfectly, but it wont boot at all at 330fsb. ISNT THERE ANYWAY TO RUN A LOWER FSB MULTIPLIER?
maybe if i tried your exact motherboard settings i could get it to work... anyway you can get me this info?

thanks -pz
btw ill try cas latency of 4... duno if it'll help though :/

I had issues with my booting up. I couldn't get it to boot at over 340 for a time but once that worked itself out I managed to shoot right over 400 NP. Go ahead and give it more vcore as well.

My settings are found, here.

yea i hit my wall at about 327 fsb. duno why. maybe ill try a few of those settings like the 3x strength and what not... dont know if it will help, but hopefully.

thing is, ive tried 328 at stock volts and all the way overvolted... sometimes it boots sometimes it doesnt, even with stock volts it'll boot, sometimes it wont all the way overvolted... i really just need to figure this stuff out...

Oh yes, I KNOW what you're talking about. The warm boot problem. It kind of cured itself I just took some time and burn in. It still has that issue about FSB 430. If I use software to change the FSB within windows I can pi quite a bit higher than it'll boot at.

You might want to try that just to prove to yourself it just needs work... not a crap board. Get some decent OC software and push up your FSb from in windows slowly priming all the way.

I'm currently working on a 3.6Ghz + ddr1000, 4-5-5-15(which will be tightened as the prime passes)

lol well, i figured out what the problem was... finally...
twas a disagreement between my memory and motherboard.... either my memory or my motherboard wouldnt run a ddr2-400 or a ddr2-533 divider, so i was stuck with my memory's default ddr2-667... which is running it above fsb. problem with that is, then it needs extra voltage and such... which i can afford to give it, but that still leaves me hanging. btw THANKS for your bios settings, those strengths at x3 and the 15.6 setting or w/e allowed be about +25 fsb, then the voltage on my memory allowed me to go further... if i tried to use a divider or loosen the timings it would give me a big long beep and id have to clear the cmos... o well, running at about 2.45ghz for now... which im happy with... ill probably end up replacing this memory for some XMS or something that'll run extremely high frequencies... btw, im running my northbridge at default voltage, so thats why it had nothing to do with it...

thanks again for your help
im probably 50-100mhz away from the 1ghz club! just need some new memory!

You want to lower youre multiplier all the way,im not sure can you set x6?
If you do that you can overclock youre ram safely with youre cpu way out of its limit,its safe and should be done to find out what youre ram can do.

If the ram is limiting you,you should find out,its no use overclocking if you do not know what speed youre ram can run at.

So first lower the multiplier to see what youre ram is capable of,then set youre multiplier to 9 again and use witch cpu/ram ratio that suits you.
