It is presently set at 1000 and CPUZ shows the HT number as 1124.6 with the processor running at 225mhz.
Thanks Irv
You're HT link will be fine until you hit a certain FSB then you'll have to lower it to 800 (x4).

200 = x1
400 = x2
600 = x3
800 = x4
1000 = x5

Wow!! http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k180/irvdk/250.jpg

Just wanted to show you what your handy work did

I have the HT set at x4=800. What is next? I'm open for another lesson!!

Just carry on raiseing FSB until you get stability problems, though seeing as you're already at 250FSB you may want to try Orthos to ensure your system is stable at the moment. If Orthos brings up any fails then that is the point at which you'll need to start raiseing CPU vCore. This may not sound important but in my opinion its always a good idea to use stress testing software to ensure a stable system. Otherwise you risk the chance of multipler BSOD's which in turn can lead to corruption of the data on your HDD from improper shut downs.

Ok. I am on my way to do that now. I'll report back a little later. Again I thank you for your expertice and patience.

This is what happened after my last post.
When I reboot the system at 250 I got a screen that came up for Chkdsk. I let it run and it found 2 files and 44 unindexed files.
When it finished I ran Orthos for 45 minutes and it found no problems.

I rebooted again and got the same Chkdsk screen. I started to move the setting around and am now at:

http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k180/irvdk/240.jpg

The Vcore is actually set at 1.450.This is where I can get it to boot without the Chkdsk coming on. What do you think of these numbers? The temperatures are at 37C at idle.

Its not your idle temperatures that should be the most concern, its you load temperatures. Anything under 60*C at load is safe enough in my opinion. Also you may want to use Thermal Analysis Tool or SpeedFan instead as I switched to them instead of useing Asus Probe.

What happened was exactly what you said would happen. The HD corrupted. It seems it happened when I started it the first time at 250 with the voltage at 1.375. I had to restore from a backup.

What numbers (V) do you think I should start at in order to not have the HD corrupt on me again?

Raise your CPU vCore to 1.4v or 1.45v, though be very cautious of your temperatures. You're having boot issues as your MCH and CPU aren't getting enough power to handle the surplus FSB, just like I said, once a certain point is reached voltages will need to go up.

Thanks for the help again. I do not think I will have a problem with the temperatures as this machine under load never gets pass 42c.

I guess what I am afraid of is that the HDD will flake out on me and cause me to restore again from a backup. When I reboot and get the error message that the HDD has errors and need to do a scandisk, can I save the situation from happening if I do not let it go through that process? Or at that point is it to late to save the HDD??

I'd recommend that you let Windows carry out scandisc. Though this shouldn't happen provided your system is stable. If the CPU voltage is already up to 1.45v, which I think is the maximum stting on your particular board, then your only hopes of correcting stability issues are to lower the HTT Link, memory speed, and slacken your memory timeings. You should also check that your RAM is receiveing the correct voltage by compareing what is actually running through the RAM via the voltage monitor in your BIOS to the manufacturers rated voltage, and adjust RAM vCore if necessary.
