Ok, so your max reference clock on the board is well in excess of the max reference clock value you were able to obtain when overclocking the CPU. That is good, that means your board isn't holding you back.

The total CPU speed is the most important factor when overclocking, the memory is no where near as important, as we can just tighten the timings for any given speed. I assume you were using the 11x CPU multiplier when you hit the 246MHz? That gives 2706MHz, which is exactly what I'd expect from an X2 4200+ (mine maxed out at 2730MHz on 1.475v). Have you run Orthos (small FFT test) for a full 12-24 hours to ensure stability at 246MHz x 11? If not, make sure you do so and let us know if it passes. If it doesn't, try decreasing the reference clock by 1-2MHz until you find the speed that can pass a 12-24 hour Orthos small FFT test.

SmasherBasher, do you have a 4200+ Manchester? The Manchester core is an extremely voltage hungry processor when it starts to get close to 2.6-2.7. The average overclock I see is typically around 2.7Ghz.

Good luck

I think I have it...

Clock = 244
CPU Multi = 11x
vCore = 1.5
HT 5x
vDDR800 = 0.1v (5-5-5-18-23-2T)

Still a bit unstable.. but I'll see what I can do to tweak it,
