get to the fsb speed you like you can back the voltage back down a little
at a time til it won't boot then back it back up. if you cant get to the fsb you desire go a little higher with the volts (and not just vcore, fsb vtt).
the max intel says is still safe for this cpu is 1.45 on both fsb and vcore so you could just start out there get to the fsb you want then try backing them back down. also your board is going to have a selection for ram ratio, unlock it from the cpu if you can or if your board has like 1:1 1:1.2 1:1.5 etc change it so the ram isn't over the rated speed. once you get your fsb where you want it and stable at the lowest volts possible you can start overclocking your ram with the same 1:1 and so on til you get where you want it. also usually when upping the ram speed you will need to up the volts and loosen the timings. so if your ram is ddr2 800 at 5-5-5-15 and you want to run it say 1000 bump your timings to something like 6-6-6-20 first and volts to 2.1v see if it boots fine and don't give you blue screens, then go back and try tightening the ram timings back down little at a time like 6-6-6-18, 5-6-6-18, 5-5-5-18, 5-5-5-15 etc. if you google your board i am sure someone has done a review on it along with overclocking features and settings and see how they were able to do it. the cpu varies slightly on fsb, multiplier, volts etc but it is going to be the same process no matter what your cpu. confused yet? lol
Thanks for the info still confused

Trying to look for the settings to set the RAM ratio however from what i can tell on this board that its the System Memory Multiplier (SPD) setting, that shows options like 2.66C, 3.33C, 2.00D etc and the key on the right says x.xxA -> FSB 266 MHz, x.xxB -> FSB 333 Mhz, x.xxC -> FSB 200 MHz, x.xxD -> FSB 400 Mhz, is this what i'm looking for? I cant find anything that directly mentions a 1:1 or 2:1 ratio etc.

Theres a value for CPU Termination and its set at 1.200V currently, does this make a difference to anything?

Cheers for the help

man i haven't been on my gigabyte board in a while, but you are i the right place for your ram ratios. you should be able to see your ram mhz somewhere and it should change when you select a different option, if i remember correctly too a b c and d are for different fsb ranges, and you are probably going to want to select something in the with 'c'. do you see your ram speed change with different selections? i believe you should. and yes the cpu termination should be set around the same as vcore, can usually go a little lower with it then the vcore though.

Cheers for the help guys

I've managed to get it running at 260 FSB 12.5 multiplier with 1.32500 vcore and 1.3 termination voltage, cpu-z says the vcore is 1.296 got the system memory multiplier set at 2.00D and the timings at 5-5-5-18.

Going to see if it works at 266 FSB which it should run at with 1.288 vcore from what i've seen then stress test it, which programs would you recommend for stability testing?

Cheers again

Okay so i've managed to get it clocked to 3.3GHz using the 12.5 multiplier, 266FSB and 1.296 vcore according to cpu-z (i think its about 1.3225 in BIOS).

However when I ran an Orthos blend test, core 1 halts at about 30 mins in with this error message:
Code:
FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4
Hardware failure detected, consult stress.txt file.
Torture Test ran 30 minutes 41 seconds - 1 errors, 0 warnings.
Execution halted.
However I can't find the stress.txt file, does anyone know what that error means?

The cpu-z readout is attached, the memory looks funny to me but I've no experience so I don't know if its out or what

Basically something is not stable, a bump to vcore will probably help.
