well it failed at 245x11...but it does stay stable at 260x10

After that it didnt seem to matter how much Vcore I added, it wouldnt get stable. Also remember that overall system performance is better the closer you can get to 1000mhz HTT without going over. So it would be better to lower your FSB to 250 and keep the 4X HTT than to go to 255 and 3X wich will drop your HTT to 765mhz.

If your going to go to a 3X HTT I would switch to a 9 multi if your MoBo can handle the hike in FSB.

I have posted this a few times to other peoples question but here goes one more time. Figure out your RAM and MoBo maxes if you want to get the most out of your OC. To do this lower your HTT to 2X and put your multi at 8. Next put your RAM at 266. After doing this start raising your FSB till windows gets unstable. Thiss will let you know how high of an FSB your MoBo can handle.

To find your RAM max put the divider at 400 ( 1:1 ) and leave the other settings the same as the previous paragraph. Set your FSB to 200 and raise it slowly till windows is unstable. When it gets unstable losen your RAM timings. You can also try switching your RAM stix if your a perfectionist. No two stix are the same and you want them to be as close as possible to identical. You want your slower stick closer to the left and you can squeez a bit more performance out of the pair.

Next put you settings at 2X HTT, 266 RAM Divider, 10X multi. Start out at your current max of 255fsb. Raise it till windows is unstable. Now you know exactly what each part of your system can handle.

Now all you need is a calculator, paper and pen. It should only take a few min to figure out the best performing configuration. If you are not sure wich configuration is better to get the same speed just ask.
I agree with Psyleck, my X2 4400+ is at 2.75 with 1.425vCore! Now that you are at a higher HTT frequency, you might want to bump up your HTT/NB/Chipset voltage up one notch if you encounter another "wall".

What are your settings at the moment because I can only get it stable at 2.6Ghz. My currently settings are:

260HT x 10 Multi x 3HTT
Ram = 3-3-3-8 (stock) OC'd at 217 (434Mhz)
Vcore = 1.5v
Dram = 2.8v
