I think you're at the FSB limit for that motheboard. If you can't raise your multiplier (locked, I'll bet) then that's it.

You have a lot to do on that memory though.

It doesn't look like you would be limited by the ram as it's running DDR360 and with loose timings. If you think this may add, try to up the Vram by 0.1V - if this helps you really were ram limited.

If not, maybe some CPU or NB voltage may help. The problem is that particular mobo has a lousy NB cooler, and I'd think that you're limited by the NB temperature (nF4 chips heat a lot). The CPU and the ram are likely to go higher (check them each by adding 0.1V), if they're not the culprit it can only be the mobo.

Corpser, for socket 939 it's recommended that you keep the HT speed below 1000mhz. I suggest changing the multiplier to 3x and go from there. You'll typically start noticing instability issues around 1080mhz HT and up. Try also changing your CAS from 2.5 to 3. Also the Manchester core is a voltage hungry processor and will sometimes require up to 1.5volts when getting up to 2.7-2.8Ghz.
Make sure your running stability tests in Orthos. I always run the blend test at priority 9 for at least 5-6hrs.

Good luck

Is there a reason why your multi is at 9x? Stock is 10x.
