I'ld get 2.8ghz, but is that going to put a bottleneck on my memory? Would my memory even be able to handle that much of an overclock without over heating? I don't have a temp sensor on my memory, don't know if anyone does.

First of all, thats too much of a jump. Increasy by 5-10 HTT at a time and do a stability test.
From stock 1.8 to 2.4 is already quite the jump....2.8 on air won't be easy unless you have one heluva cooling and good stepping.



also, Can you please post screen shots of CPU-z on the processor and Memory tabs..

Thanks

I've hit pay dirt! I'm pushing 1.6V to the proc - she's stable (prime for hours now) at 2.61 (290*9) with a 9/11 mem divider (~238). She tops out at 46-47C in a pretty warm room - cooler room, about 38-40. Now hopefully I'll have my other two dimms back from OCZ soon, and I'll post how well (or not) it takes 4 dimms at these speeds. Do you think she'd go to 2.7 if I can keep it a bit cooler? Right now it posts at 2.7, but doesn't finish booting, and resets to default settings.

Tough to say since you can't put any more volts into it (even though 1.6 is already not a small amount). That maybe your limit on air..

Ok, I have my HTT at 4x and the bus speed at 220 stable, but the 225 bus speed is unstable. My HTT is 1000 and 4x 225 = 900. So my HTT should be ok. My cpu is at 11x 220 = 2420. I've already established that my BIOS isn't responding to my changes in cpu multiplier, when I set it to 10 it's at 11 still. So, when I try to do 10x 240 it is unstable. Now, could that be because it is taking the 11x multiplier and making my cpu too high or because my HTT multiplier might be stuck at 5x, not 4x, and is going to 1200 for 240x 5? I can find out if you tell me a way to check the HTT in windows. Also, could this be a BIOS issue that would be resolved by going to beta BIOS 1?

Mufto, if you're running any official bios over 1.2, you're going to have trouble with multi and vcore settings. I jumped over to OCWB1, and never looked back. I'm sitting right now (with the vcore mod done) at 2.61GHz @ 1.6V (290x9), with the 333 mem divider (9/11 x290 = ~237). She's solid as a rock too. Also make sure fast writes are disabled on AGP settings - it does cause problems when trying to overclock your machine if you have it enabled (and you have nothing to gain by having it enabled).

I guess It couldnt hurt to flas to bios 1 and if you want to go back to 1.2, you can do that too.
Just be very careful when flashing, all it takes is one mistake to screw up the bios. Do as the instructions say and you'l be fine.

Hi guys! I'm back. Well, I have been getting random blue screens. It said something about the Memory dump. Anyways, I go to stock again and it all works. I have a couple of questions, 1- Do I just need to change the memory timings? 2- for now I have put the Memory timings to stock, put the HTT to 245 x9 = 2.2Ghz NB=auto, SB=auto. but that puts my FSB at 1300MHz. I heard that's bad, you want it under 1000Mhz. but when i change the NB/SB to 800MHz I get random blue screens again. Is it that bad to just run it over 1000Mhz? Thanks a million!

Ok, I'm sorry. I should have read up before posting. That just made me look dumb. So here is how I had my settings when it blue screens:

HTT=267
Mem=133
Timings=2.5-3-3-10-2T
NB=600x16bit
SB=600x16bit

The math says that should work. 267 x .66 = 176 which is under 200mhz that my DDR400 will run. Is it just that's too slow for the memory? I am going to try pumping up the HTT to 303 which gives ms 2.7 (303 x 9) and puts the memory at 200Mhz (303 x .66 = 200).

Question:

Will a HTT of 303 cause problems? That's huge isn't it.
This doesn't affect my video card if I have it locked at 100mhz right?
Is doing this even right at all? I am assuming that the memory needs to run closer to 200 and that's why it's not working at 176.

Thanks
