Thread Starter 
ok so i did do as u asked previously. fsb to 310 and enabled NB and SB Over Voltage Vcore but i couldnt see any option to up them as u had asked. anyways. everytime i try to up the Processor Voltage and restart then i go back to the bios, it doesnt work. its set to 1.4 then i raised it to 1.5 but when i was back after a boot it still shows as 1.4.
one more thing. now if choose to set the mem timings mode to Limit, its 100. so would that mean it remains on that timing or do i run ClockGen and read my mem freq and set it to that frequency? then lower the timings?

Everything im telling you im saying from memory because i havent used my A8N-SLI in a while so im sorry man i cant help you much more with the BIOS options... But i think i remember from back when i did use it that if you set the mem frequency to anything other than DDR333 or DDR400 then it will automatically change back to DDR400 after the first boot - its a bug with the A8N-SLI bios, try a bios update...

Are you sure it's not your motherboard hitting it's ceiling? I had that problem with mine, I have the same stepping, but my motherboard can't get past 320 or something like that. Just put the cpu on a lower multi and see how high your motherboard can go first.

And what are your temps like?

And what are your temps like?
temps are idle 34 load 46
as soon as i go over 313x9 fsb and over 2.8 ghz then bang it freezes. i tried uping my mem voltage. and lowered my ram timings from 3-3-3-8 to 3-4-4-9 and uped the processor voltage to 1.5v still same problem

this is what i wanna know. setting it to limit will show that the memclock is 100mhz but i could up it too. should i leave it to 100 and lower the timings instead?

Those are nice temps for that cooler. What I meant before, was change the multiplier of the CPU to 8x or 7x, set the RAM limit to 100mhz, or lower if there is something lower.

Then increase the FSB over 313 to 315 or 316, and then see if it works. If it doesn't, then your motherboard will not go any higher. This means you have to enable overvolting of the northbridge, that's what I think it could be called in the asus bios. Then see how high you can get your FSB this time.

After that, you can then try to match that speed with your CPU at it's highest multiplier, changing the voltage as neccessary - watch the temps.

Then try and get the RAM as fast as possible at that speed.. I won't go into that yet though.

I am unsure why your CPU voltage isn't changing, but there should be other options than 1.4 and 1.5 in there, with finer adjustments. That's a guess anyway.

Does that help?
