Cool thanks for all the help. I should have probably looked for something like that earlier. But reps to you two for responding so quickly.

you should be able to reach 2.65 stable easily. Im on 4200+, ASUS A8N SLI Premium, 2x512 OCZ Titanium.

My ram timings are 2.5-3-2-5 with a HTT of 4

CPU Settings: 265x10 1.5v, 2.8v for the ram.

Because my ram is not the best overclocker i had to drop my ram speeds from 400 to 333 to overclock my cpu to my desired speed and run stable. Bumping 65 mhz on the fsb while the ram is running 400mhz was too much for my ram. By dropping it to 333 and running a 265x10 fsb, my ram is now running 440mhz, not a huge overclock on the ram but enough, and it allowed me to achieve a higher fsb without pushing my ram above its limits.

Id try and keep your ram timings as tight as possible untill u blue screen or encouter errors. also make sure to drop yout HTT. If i were to try 270x10 i would put it to 3 from the 4 i have it at now. Also make sure to give your cpu enough volts or you will experience reboots or lock ups in games.

Try 265x10, 1.5v, 4 HTT - Keep your ram timings stock except for maybe the CAS bump up .5 if you cant boot. That is basicaly what im running and with your cooling you should be able to get 2.7 ghz or higher. If you would like to talk some more you can contact me on msn, ryan@x2designstudios.com
