So basicly just don't let it get over 800...

Ok related question: A while back when i got my comp, the guy who showed me how to put it together (GF's (now exgf's lol) dad) told me to up the FSB. Unfortunately he didn't know anything about AMD's htt, so the FSB got cranked up to 215 for a while, with a 4x multiplier, would that have hurt the HTT and now it is preventing me from OC'ing? Just a thought.

'Most likely', that was not high enough to cause damage, many people use to overclock their ht a little, but now it's pretty well known that it has no benefit for amd systems. And even if it did damage something, it most likely wouldn't have affected your cpu. Try upping your vcore, if that doesn't work, then run memtest86 to test your memory, and then try finding your motherboard's stable limit.

Ok, i hope its not the memory, its only a few weeks old lol.

Ok, so i downed the multiplier to x10 and upped the fsb 240, downed the htt to 3x, and seem to be runnin fine. I upped the vcore by .025 also. Looks like im gettin somewhere, even though my clock speed is still the same as stock, at least im not stuck with my fsb around 200. Going to test its stability a little, any other suggestions would be a.o.k. by me

Down the multiplier to like 8X. That way, you are taking memory out of the equation altogether.

For stability testing, I have preferred OCCT for 30 minutes of quick stability testing. I would rather not have to wait 12-24 hours, and OCCT seems to be a pretty good test.

I upped my OC today to 2.891, and will go for 2.950ish tomorrow. I am gonna add 2 more case fans - 1 below to hit my 2 vid cards and 1 above right over the Big Typhoon to get the air out. Who knows where this will go?

Lowering the cpu multi won't affect the memory speed whatsoever, running a big divider will do that.

Oh i forgot to mention i downed the memory ratio also, so its not over 400mhz

ok, i upped the fsb to 250, lowerd the mem ratio to keep it under 400, and at first it failed to post. After i upped the vCore another .025 volts it booted fine, puts me at 2.5Ghz at 1.550V. Im on the right track i think thanks for the help guys seriously, this is good stuff!

No problem, keeps us posted ! Btw, you don't have to run a divider and such, just increase your multi to 12X (my cpu doesn't like the 10X multi, and most OC's i've seen with clawhammers were on the higher multi's). But, if you run a higher multi, you won't have to run as high a htt and memory speeds, thus you won't have to run a divider. After you find your max stable cpu speed, you can play with your dividers later, to make sure you're running your ram at it's max speed while keeping your cpu at it's max, that way you can get the most out of your system.

I don't think my cpu like a multiplier of 12 lol, never really gotten anywhere until i dropped it to 10, but i'll give it a shot lol.

Quick question for ya erauman, i noticed in your specs you have a clawhammer aswell, how fast have you managed to get that one running? Any new heatsinks? And if you remember, how fast did you get it going on stock cooling? I know every chip is differnt, but it would be nice to know when im gettin close to the limit I have an lcd temp readout on the front of my case, and my temp hasn't jumped with the overclock of 2.5Ghz, so i think i have some head room as far as heat goes
