hmmm, i'll try that 401x8.
if it ran without any great temps increase, i'd be very glad.
anyway, i had another thought, reading some other forums. maybe my RAM is holding me back? people say to put it at 1:1 but i dont get it.
in my freaky asus bios, the FSB is x4, in other words, to run 400 fsb i must put 1600 in there. right now it is 1500, which makes my fsb 375 (x8 = 3.0)
but, for ram, i leave it unlinked and leave it at 800mhz. CPU-z reads 400mhz but i guess thats correct, right? now, if i link it and leave it at 1:1, with 1500mhz, ram is automatically set to 1500 too. and this will fry my little babies, wont it?
i think i'm missing something here. i really dont understand how 1:1 can get you any further. unless its because you OC the memory but oc'ing a DDR2800 to 1500mhz is madness XD
would be glad for help.. going to sleep now, tho. (10:40 pm here in Rio, i'm 16 and got to go to school by morning
EDIT: btw, at 3.0 ghz im running at 1.3000 vcore. ran it at 1.28, and yet i didint orthos-check it for hours, i left it downloading some games and when i came back it had turned off. guess its better to leave it at 1.3 anyways. nb vcore is 1.39 or 1.2something, i dont remeber exactly. i think its 1.39 tho.
