egva 7800gt 256mb
fortron 450w psu
thermaltake big typhoon cpu cooler
wd 74gig 10k rpm hd

i have it oc'd to almost 2.6g this is what i did:
234fsb x 11 multiplier
cpu volts to 1.45
nb volts to 1.6
the ram v 2.8
but the ram timing on auto
i tried some settings but had no success, and i noticed that when people say "timing at 2-2-2-8" and so on i have like 10 settings and i only see 4 there what ones are those???? and my main questions what can i set mine to??? its ok now but i would like better speeds from it, what do you suggests for me???

Please put your system in your Profile via the USER CP
Here are a few links to help you with the RAM timings.

There is a more in depth link but I have to find it!
Mere is another one

dont touch the voltages unless you run into stability, you dont need to increase the voltage if you increase the speed.

you should try

255 x 11
HTT x 4
vcore 1.5-1.55
Divider 166
Timings 2.5-3-3-7 1T
vdimm 2.7v

If you dont understand what I wrote, then you aren't ready to overclock. And would probably damage something before gaining anything. There are multiple overclocking guides on the web, I suggest you read them before doing anything.
These settings I just mentioned are "basic"..

i just tried this:
245x11
httx4
vcore 1.45
i have no divider
ram volts 2.75
and i set the ram from the ddr400 to the ddr333 and left the settings on auto witch were: 2.5-3-6-8-11-16 according to cpu-z
and i am running 2.7ghz on air!
i am watching temps now, do you still suggest those ram timings? thanks for the help guys.

yes, i suggest changing your times to 2.5-3-3-7-11-16 with 2.7v.
Nice job on the clocks. You do have a divider its your DDR333 speed which is also referred to 166 or 333 dividers.
If you try for more, just keep increasing your FSB, and when you get to instability, it's most likely your HTT multi that needs to change to x3, or it's your vcore. Most likely your vcore.
Increase vcore when it's unstable to around 1.475...then increase FSB, then increase vcore to 1.5...
It's a steady ongoing process.
Once again, good job, I wasn't sure if you understood anything I was talking about

You probably will want to put it on a bigger divider like 133 if you plan on going higher, cause the value ram won't like it much. I know my corsair value ram is pitiful when it comes to overclocking, but what can you expect from value ram?

one more thing, i dont really want to lower my htt its at 245x4=960. if i raise my fsb to hit 2.8ghz i have to go to 255x11 for the cpu to hit 2805 so then i will have to lower the multiplier to 3 only giving my htt to 765?

you dont have to change your HTT, only change it if your system doesn't boot. My board will go over 1100 HTT speed. It doesn't do anything for performance, it just needs to be set in a range for the computer to boot.
Those temps are fine for your setup. 50c isn't that bad, but about the limit for your Daily clocks.
