ok i got into the bios and these are the changes i have made

CPU/SPEED VOLTAGE SETTING AUTO=MANUAL
DDR VOLTAGE AUTO = 2.6
PERFORMANCE MODE AUTO=TURBO
V LINK VOLTAGE 2.5=2.6
MEMCLOCK MODE AUTO=MANUAL
MEMCLOCK TO CPU RATIO 1:1 DDR200= 2:1 DDR400

PLEASE SOMEBODY LET ME KNOW IF I DID ANYTHING WRONG...SO FAR I DONT THINK I HAVE AS FAR AS MY KNOWLEDGE TELLS ME

I AM NOW LOOKING AT CPUZ AND MY CORE SPEED WENT UP FROM 2400 TO 2582.3MHZ I HAVE NOT CHANGED MY MULTIPLIER BECAUSE I CANT SEEM TO FIND IT IN BIOS OH AND I ALSO INCREASED MY HTT FROM 200 TO 215 IN BIOS ANY EXTRA HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED THANKS

ive made some new changes ive increased my CPU FSB frequency from 215-220 i tried to increase it to 250 but it would put me to safe mode when i go into OS so i got very scared and dropped it down to 200 even when i brought it up to 230 it would still put me to safe mode

my question is should i increase the cpu volatge from 1.5 to 1.6? Im not exactly sure what its gonna do so i thought id ask before i do it

my core speed is now at 2639.9mhz with a multiplier of x 12 and an htt of 220 mhz ..please let me know what else i can do to increase my speed... my goal is to get this baby up to atleast 2.8 to 3ghz help!!

That is a fair over clock right now. Try and run your ram at 1:1 ratio.

what mobo do u have? asus k8v deluxe? and i dont ever recall sum1 hitting 3.0ghz with a via chipset. disable cool and quiet feature then ur timing should be 1:1 ratio, cpu voltage should be 1.65 if i recall my old k8v mobo theres one more feature in the very bottom u have to set it at AUTO not turbo

i just changed it to those settings but when i did both my monitors would go back and nothing would appear but my comp would still be on because i can hear it running and the on light is on the ram light is also on so im not sure if i was supposed to wait till it reconfigures itself so i waited a little longer until i lost my patience and restarted then when it went back on i got an error saying overclocking failed and asked me to change the settings so now im back to my old settings accck 2.7 really the best i can do with this?? *sigh*

good morning guys ..this will be day 2 of my overclocking adventure...ok last night the highest ive gotten it was at 2.75 but it was very unstable..at times it would ask me to start in safe mode so i brought my

CPU FSB back down from 230mhz to 225mhz it seem like anything higher than that would put my comp up to safe mode or make it unstable...

here are my current settings

HTT=215mhz
DDR voltage = 2.6v
CPU volatge = 1.65
memclock to cpu ratio = 2:1 ddr400
performance mode is back to turbo

please let me know what i can do to increase my core speed thanks alot...this forum rules!!!!
