It might boot over 1000 HT, but the sweet spot is between like 750 and 1000. But yeah, change it to 3

First of all, unless I've misread your CPU-Z RAM screenshots several posts up, I think you're running mismatched RAM. I'm particularly unsure about the 1GB Corsair DIMMs you're running. (If I misread this, please correct me.)

Mismatched RAM will put a huge amount of stress on the CPU's integrated memory controller (IMC); in fact, running four DIMMs on a S939 system stresses the IMC a lot, so when overclocking, it's a good idea to reduce the stresses induced on the system as much as possible.

It's therefore a good idea to run a matched pair of DIMMs. A 2GB set (2 x 1GB) will help you.

Second, RAM tuning is probably the most labor-intensive and mysterious part of overclocking. There's really no shortcut to it other than good old trial and error if you want to get the most out of your RAM. Accordingly, you have to establish what your RAM can do on its own, and then combine that with what the CPU and your motherboard can do on their own.

To find your RAM's max, you have to:
  • Drop your CPU multiplier to a low number (I use 6x at most).
  • Reset your RAM to its stock divider setting (so it runs 1:1 with the reference HTT clock) and its stock timings and VDIMM.
  • Drop your HT Multiplier to a lower value (I use 2x).
  • Slowly increase your HTT clock, then run MemTest86+ after every change. I raise the HTT clock by 5MHz at a time when testing RAM, and use Test 5 and Test 8 (five runs of each test). It's KEY to run MemTest86+ before booting into the OS at this stage, because if you try to boot into the OS with horribly unstable RAM, you risk killing your OS installation (trust me; I've learned this the hard way).
  • When you pass your preliminary MemTest86+ runs, boot into the OS and run SuperPi 32M tests to establish basic OS stability.
  • When you hit your first MemTest86+ failure, raise your CAS Latency setting by one (or one-half, if your motherboard allows half settings), and re-run MemTest86+.
  • With subsequent MemTest86+ failures, you have to now be methodical and raise your timings settings one at a time and see which setting will buy you additional stability.
  • Repeat the testing.
  • Another option to try: Slowly increase VDIMM if timings adjustments don't help. Most RAM ICs don't stay safe at VDIMM higher 2.9V these days.
  • Keep on repeating these steps until your RAM simply cannot scale higher.

RAM tuning is NOT easy, but when you do it right, it yields a system that performs very well.

Good luck, and don't be intimidated by the enormity of the task.

RAM is unstable.

Have you tried the procedure I outlined for you a few posts up?

I'm sorry, but not a chance. My rig only pulls 5500 in 3dmark06, and an x1950pro, while not a new card by any means, is more powerful than an 8500gt...

Re. the OP--yeah, that RAM isn't helping much--why such low clocks on it--is it not DDR400? Why won't it run stock? That's odd. Also, seems like from the 3dmark SS, your CPU is at 2.4GHz. That will bottleneck the GPU somewhat, but what kind of performance are you getting in games? And what res are you using?
