Under DRAM Settings there's a memclock value. That's your dividers.
I think ASUS has 400 as 1:1 with your HTT, 333/400 is 5/6ths of the HTT etc.

Yep, certainly try that and if that's not stable go a bit lower. Once it's stable, see if you can tighten the timings a bit.

The system still doesnt like it, tired relaxing the timings to 3-4-4-12 then uped the FSBxMulti to 260x11 and it just blankly refused to boot.

Irritating this is.

hmm... try to find your max cpu speed... that may be what your problem is... use ncsa's guide to find the max of your cpu and RAM. I don't have a link at the moment because I'm not at home.

You might be asking a bit much of your CPU. Most will do about 2.8Ghz, but I think your board will only go to 1.5 vcore. You''ll probably need a bit more if you want to go higher.

I`m running C2 but I think I will get some new RAM modules.

My board does a max of 1.55v for vCore which should be enough to be honest, just going to have to fiddle a bit I guess. Think I`m looking for a qucik solution, need to take more time over this.

Your memory should not affect your CPU OC if you know what you are doing. You can OC each component on its own to find the max. I bet it's your motherboard holding you back with the 1.55v maximum.
Do a search around for an Asus BIOS that might have higher values above 1.55 vcore. Sometimes people Modify bios's to allow more.
You might even come across a volt mod that makes it simple to increase volts..
Check out to see if there is an Asus forum on their website, find out from other users what they do to get higher vcores'. I would go insane if I found out my motherboard stopped at 1.55v

Thoughts anyone ?

FSB = 250MHz
Multi = x11
vCore = 1.55v
RAM = 3-3-3-8
RAM Freq = 266 or 300
vDDR = 2.8v

you may be stuck at that fsb/htt on that board, try dropping the multi to 10x and increasing the fsb/htt to 275 and setting the "RAM Freq" to 266 or lower.
also lower your ht / fsb multiplier to 3x
