There is also the influence of the MB and what speed this can run at ... which is why finding the Max for each of the 3 key components helps you see the options which are available.

Now for some setups the CPU will not like or run at particular lower Multi's so it is a matter of testing your system to see what performs best.

CPU Speed is No.1 then it is a balance of HTT vs mem timings the idea is to max out all of them in a balanced way, something that takes testing and time on any partiuclar setup.

Regardless of the settings, keep your full load temp @ or below 50c!

lol, yea dont wanna burn up this little gem of a cpu. on full load from prime95 it maxes out at about 48, so im kinda borderline. i was thinkin about gettin one of those tt big typhoon you had mentioned to me but gotta wait to get some cash, and from what i hear some time to install it. i thnk it just boils down to me being lazy, lol

An aftermarket heatsink and fan will help your cpu stay cool once you start overclocking.

If your mobo, ram, cpu and video cards are run hard, it is all held in check if your power supply isn't up to the task.
Overclock in small steps.

well im sitting at 240x11=2640 and 2.5-3-3-8 stable after 1.5 hrs of prime95, but at about 47-48 C so i guess that is fine until i get a new heatsink.

im also planning on getting some more ram. would that increase my cpu heat any forcing me to buy the heatsink before the ram?

Yep... until you get a good FHS I'd not push it any further
On the RAM, 2x1g would better serve you than 4x512s both in performance and OCing.

well, would the 2x1 ram increase the heat too much w/o a new heatsink?
