Depending on how your RAM takes it you should be able to hit 2.5 from the looks of it.

I would try these settings to see if it works...

250 x 10
HTT x 4
Vcore 1.55
Memory divider 166 (333)
mem voltage 2.7

Also, if you could list how high your memory can run (230mhz, 250mhz?)

Your temperatures are pretty high for default voltage..do you live in a very hot area? Did you make sure to put thermal paste under the heatsink when installing it?

The majority of Winnies get around 2.6 depending on your components. That's when their memory controller usually takes a dump.

Yea i have AS5 under the HS
I dont live in a hot area.. at least not right now, its winter here.
Umm do u think the higher temps are from not so good airflow in my case and should i post some pics of the inside of my case.
I wont try to OC it anymore until i can get the temps to drop.

do you have a stock heatsink and fan if you do update to a good hsf or a water cooling if you can afford it but a good hsf and some good heat sink compound (as5)? will be good to
keep temps below 50c when at load your temps are a bit high right know
by posting pics this wont tell us much but keep your case very tidy !!! to help air folw
also the settings above seem ok 2.5 ghz seems great if you have your temps below 50c at load
hope this helps ! if stuck just keep asking plenty of people to help here

The settings tytlyf gave you should work (Works fine on my venice without the 2.7 memory volts)

Here is how I got 2.6 (max stable):

260 FSB
10 x multi
htt x 3
Memory on auto (though it ended up being 266 divider or 133 x 2)
CPU VCore at 1.55

everything else on auto

I am still having trouble getting my load temps lower, i am using as5 and have a Zalman 7000b-Cu.

I dont think its an airflow problem. I have 2x90mm intake fans on teh window of the case, 90mm exhaust on back, 80mm blowhole and 80mm intake in front, plus the exhaust fans on PSU.

Should i try takeing my HS off and redoing the as5 and reseat it or what?

Winchester cores run hotter than venice core.Different room temps affect cpu temps. I run at 22 degrees Celcius at home. I bring it to my mothers and it runs at 36 degrees celcius.When overclocked i run at 36 degrees and 51 degrees at full load at 2640 Ghz.What monitoring tool are you using?.
