Those new sticks you ordered will help things along but for better speeds, I'd try a 133MHz divider and see how far you can take it along with some looser timings such as CAS 2.5 instead of CAS 2 for example. Naturally with a lower CPU multiplier you won't get as high of a clockspeed with the same bus speed settings.
It's a matter of give and take related to settings.
Sorry Kryton, I wrote that wrong. I meant to say a DDR 200 divider in Bios, not 200mhz. Currently, I am at 133(ddr 266) for my divider. This works fine for around that 2.8ghz OC range(cpuid says 185 I think, and I have my timings cranked down to 2.5-3-3-5-2T, the stock was 3-3-3-8), but I feel I am maxing ot the memory, even with only 2 gigs running now. BTW, I have been running 2 gigs instead of four now for like 3 weeks on win7 64, and have not noticed any kind of performance loss. Maybe if I play something like Crysis but, other than that I am not sure the I need much more. Thats why I only orderd 2 gigs of the Mushkin mem to start with. I will try some higher timings with the mushkin sticks at first just to see how high I can get the OC on the cpu. Thanks for your response, I wil post new results hopefully sooner than later.
