I know in my case I could hit 3.6 GHz as long as I did no operations that stressed the memory controller. But the instant I fired up Prime95 blend, BAM!

So yeah, my CPU was kinda stuck at 3.25 as well. 600 free MHz is nothing to complain about though.
hehe, id rather use a 64bit OS that get that extra overclock though

i've maxed out at 268 FSB now @1.375V. temps are still good @ 38C max and prime95 stable.
problem is, i up the FSB to 270 and machine won't POST / goes into a restart loop / and I cannot access BIOS. I then have to clean CMOS by opening case, which is a PITA !
any suggestions for me at this point?

Buy a better heatsink. Actually, you can have first dibs on my Scythe Ninja Mini if I ever sell it.

heh, is the Scythe Ninja that much better?
it doesnt seem like a heat issue though.. 38C is hardly much :S
I have a feeling it has to do with the damn NB and HT frequencies.. they don't seem to stick at what I set them at through the BIOS.

yes yes i believe it does (christmas tree adding a nice touch) . My wife and I both play modern warfare 2 so we have it so that while one plays the other can watch fox over the internet or as seen un the screen up by disney .
usualy though modern warfare is up on the big one and we turn the asus a little to the couch and setup some tv there .
Trying to get out of the 3.25 ghz range but i keep getting failed boots any time my ram goes over 1333 and i have no idea how ram works on a physical level as i am a programmer not a tech.
dude for 99 dollars this chip with the right cooling is just amazing. comparable I5 costs 72 bucks more, and the board is 30 more. So when do i get in the club lol.

I was having a similar problem. I then realized that memory clock was a product of FSB x some multiplier. so i had the speed manually set to 1333 in bios. also, I found that when i increased the FSB, the memory timings were automatically changed. so I fixed all memory timings to the manufacture defaults. After that, i was able to push it past the 3.25 range.. I'm new to this too but hope that helps..
