*Does the Rampage allow you to select the NB strap? If so you want to keep it either 266 or 333mhz. [the 266mhz strap may require more NBv than the 333mhz strap, depending on your current FSB.]
Yes, there is an option to select the Nb strap in my Mobo. Thanks for your answer.

Those are phenomenal temps!! You don't need to start to worry until you're in the 60's on load. 65 is a good limit, much like the highway.

Tha NB strap affects both the latency of the CPU and the RAM. Keeping the strap set to the lowest mhz setting, you are keeping the lowest amount of latency possible. Each time you raise the NB strap, you are loosening the latency to allow for a higher OC.

That said, the latency at the 400mhz strap is uber loose, allowing for OC's up into the 500-600mhz FSB. You should be able to keep on the 266mhz strap until you reach ~450mhz FSB..

*Think of the NB latency and voltage as RAM.. the looser the timings get, the less voltage is needs to run stable. If you are keeping the 266mhz strap at 400+mhz FSB, you are going to need to add some NBv [like going from 5-5-5-15 @ 800mhz -> 4-4-4-10 @ 800mhz... the later will definitely need more voltage to run].

Hope that answers your Q, clearly.

Where do you live? Seattle there is no way to reach that speed.
