I used EZFlash

I was going for a stable overclock as close to 3GHz with my processor as I could get, with the RAM clocked up as high as I could get... I had to up the CPU-NB voltage 0.25v, Processor is at 1.35 in bios... although for whatever reason it always runs higher. Memory is up 0.75v from it's ddr2 800 spec of 1.8 volts.

So final settings changes in BIOS:

FSB: 215
CPU Voltage: 1.35v
CPU-NB: (gah I forget this one, just add 0.25v to the base)
Memory Voltage: 1.875v

I tried reducing the timings a notch for my memory, the system became very unstable. I think the problem is exactly as Think3r said. 4 sticks of RAM. I'm pretty happy with it, although I wish I could have gotten it stable at the 3.125 GHz I started with. Oh well... It'll make my outdated hardware run for another year or 2 while I decide what I'm going to build next!

(bah, ok so I changed my mind... I'm back messing with it)

N2Gaming, may as well wait to update any of my info, I'm probably going to be working on this overnight... I simply decided that I would get this to be a stable overclock with it all pushing a little harder. Hardware's all the same, but I am positive I can do better then what it's at.

Hey Reaper,

Your most likely going to need 2+ volts on 800Mhz RAM to get tight timings. Also Put your Processor at 1.3625, +0.75 Volts on the CPU-NB and You should be right then.

Ironically that's exactly what I've done. It's booted. Although that doesn't mean a whole lot. I also bumped my FSB to 220.

It's running 220x13.5x with 4-4-4-12 timings at 2.075v on the memory, 1.275v on the cpu-nb... running prime95 now. Yay for flash games on the laptop.

Ok, so I rebooted just so I could go ahead and put these BIOS settings up after running Prime95 for several hours.

CPU Freq: 223
DDR2 Voltage: 2.100V
CPU Voltage: 1.400V
CPU-NB:1.400V

RAM A&B clock skew: advance 150ps
timings: 4-4-4-12

(edit inc with new and FINAL validation)

Never been able to get it to run at 800, only 667. I just o/c the FSB to bump on the memory speed!

I have a M2N32-SLI Premium mobo with X2 6400.

Looking in to getting an SLI setup for the first time.

Choices are between 8800GT vs. 9800GT


Trying to breakdown some things:

Are 1GB models just gimmicks?

650w PSU enough juice?

PCI-E PSU connections are usually 6pin I'm assuming?

Will my CPU bottleneck the SLI'd GPU's?

You may see a slight advantage using 9800 > 8800 especially if the 9800's have 1G of VRAM. The more video ram you have the higher you can set your resolutions on your graphics cards w/out noticing as much lag or stutter. 650w should be enough for those cards in SLI. 1MB video cards are no gimmic they have a purpose. Your CPU should not bottleneck thosed SLI'd cards much if at all but it really depends on the game and if it's a more cpu or gpu dependant game. PCIe connectors come w/both 6/8 pin connectors and some of the latest Nvidia Cards have requirements for both. I don't think any 88/9800GT cards require 8 pins but the GTX GTX+ might. Depending on what you pay for the 88/9800's your contemplating, you may be better off getting a couple of 250GSO or GTX260's.
