But is it normale for cpuz and speedfan to display a lower vcore then the bios? Or is the bios displaying a higer vcore then it realy is??

I got my vCore set higher in BIOS than it shows too...
I dont know whats wrong, or if it's anything wrong at all.. but the vCore is kinda unstable... But there hasnt been any unstability on my system, so I dont think it really matters...

I know that the stability doesn't realy matters unless its more then 0,05 but how important is the display difference? I mean can I go up a bit furter or is the bios displaying it right?

As I understand it, the BIOS is telling how much vCore that is feeded, and CPUZ (or other that kinda programs) tells how much vCore it gets... so, you can try to up it a notch and see if it gets better...

It's really just to try and see what happends... As long as you stay under 55 degrees, nothing will happen to your CPU... (Just remember that upping the vCore results in more heat in the CPU)
The only things you might come over is freezes, bluescreens and reboots, but that just mean that you've overclocked a bit too far

You've read the Intel overclocking guide here in the forum, right?

shure, and it cleary says that a vcore of 1,7v is the maximum. But If i can nodge it up a little I might go higer

If you go over 1.7 I really dont know what will happen, so I can't tell you if it's safe or not...
You gotta ask one of the Intel experts in this forum. I'm sure they can help you!
"The_Manual" has helped me with alot of stuff, see if you can PM him about it

Alright I seem to have hit a wall. I can't go over 239 Mhz, if I do my system wil become unstale or not even boot anymore. I lowerd it down ro 236Mhz and lower th vcore for some less heat production. I'm at 3,3Ghz now, quite a good Oc for my first real attempt is I must say so myself

Thanks for the help!

I would not give up on the big 250 mark yet

238MHz was stable with 1.7v correct? and temps were fluctuating between 55-58C.

I would attempt a run at 240MHz with a vcore of 1.71+ if it will stay below 60C. However you processor is actually rated for 75C of thermal output so you have some room. Keep it below or equal to 55C for 24/7 use but for a few hours test run it should be ok. This would allow you to see what settings work well and then purchase a better cooler to run those settings 24/7.

Make sure your memory operates as close to 400MHz as possible. Also burn in your processor at 238 first, so run Pirme95 or something that uses a huge amount of processing power for a long time to burn in the CPU at its current speeds. This may allow you to go a bit higher, it did for me

Make sure that the AGP/PCI values stay at 66.6MHz/33.3MHz or as close as possible all the way through.
Another point would be perhaps to increase the chipset voltage one notch to allow the data transfer to operate a bit better, this would make sure that its not the board that is limiting you (very unlikely because the board is very good).

Ill try it, but keep in min that even on a vcore of 7,5v (at least the bios says, cpuz is more like 1,7v). The system was very unstable when I went over 240.

But ill try the burn in, and see what happens

Thanks!
