|Anyway any OCer nows that normally you loosen your timmings to 5-5-5-15 before you OC. Also I did state that setting it to 5 will help greatly as far stability goes. 500 FSB on a P5B should be easy right and if not then set up a 4:5 divider and set the FSB to 400 and bam you have 500 on the RAM|
OC your RAM 1st...when you know what it likes at 500mhz...then try for 500mhz FSB...not the other way around. That is just asking for issues.
And. no I wasnt 'taking a shot' ..just pointing out that contradicting yourself in your opening statement, might not be the way to introduce an idea to someone. You were on the right track with your settings...just a different method, which is ok too.
