Im pretty satisfied with what its doing so far, but do you think that upping the fsb to 215 would be a significant difference? That would almost put my processor at 2.6ghz and would increase my ram speed to about 170ish. At full load Im at 35 C so my cooling situation is still good.

I tried to research online and found that people with similar setups are reaching 220 fsb with my ms-6702 mobo. To be on the safe side i was gonna stay at 215. Also, if my comp doesn't like 215, what's the worst that can happen?

Zona, I did some searching and this might be of some use. It's a modded BIOS that actually allows you to lock the pci/agp buses for your board: http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=45339 (#2 post).
One user in that thread got his HTT up to 276mhz. A few others confirmed that the "locking" option was available. This is a modded BIOS so there is no guarantee's. Flash at your own risk
If you can't lock the buses then your dead in the water. There have been plenty of individuals that ignore that and end up damaging their board in the long run.

Good luck buddy

Thanks for the info on the modded Bios. This may be a little too risky for me. I would rather not push the limits and take a chance of burning my board out. Im broke atm so I want to keep my system as long as possible. haha Im gonna wait till hellsaber1973 gets back to me to see what his numbers were since he has the same setup as me.

I appreciate all the help.

bump? 215 at a 12 multiplier = 2.58ghz and a 860 HTT where 800 is stock? Will that be safe?

Zona, 860HT (hypertransport) is safe. With S939 you typically don't want to go over 1000-1080mhz HT. After that you may run into stability issues.

Good luck

youve got a nice OC there , I have a good OCing 939 and its board locks the pci/agp
which is needed for the OC I get on my 3500+, just keep in mind that the HT multi
has "straps" that it does better on so if you hit a wall on fsb, then lower your HT multi
in fact I lower my HT multi to 3 and drop ram low like 266 then find my wall on the chip/voltage and start tweaking my ht and ram from there.
