If you bump up the FSB then you will overclock the CPU and RAM at the same time. Do some searching on this sight and you will find good resources on how to overclock and bump up your FSB. If you need more help post up a screenshot of your CPU-z. That will give us something to work off of and give you some advice.

What is the voltage on your ram? And also isn't 1.29v a little low for 3.2?

What specific model is your Corsair RAM? (am presuming its Corsair).

But these are my suggestions first up, even without that specific information.

Your first step...

1). Bump your DIMM (that's RAM) voltage up to 2.0v. At that voltage level with any DDR2 800 Corsair RAM you'll be fine and won't risk any damage (I myself take a little more risk and have mine running at 2.2v, up from default of 1.8v).

2) Next, you can try changing your RAM timings. Particularly, drop your CAS latency to 5 (that'll give you 5-5-5-15).

Hope that helps.
Meh, good enough
