I think you were posting reply when I responded earlier, you may want to scroll up and examine the link I provided and give some attention to the type of chips you have on your memory.

from the link u gave me euphorixmix, by the looks of it i have BH-5 chips...ive got the OCZ Gold Series PC3200 1gb ram...is this BH-5 chips stuff anygood.....ooh yea right now im running 2.4ghz...havnt run any OCCT or Prime or Super Pi Yet...so im about to do that

I Changed my FSb to 240
Uped my ram voltage to 2.8v
I think im runnin 2T
166 divider
1.45v vcore
104% special vcore
1.7v Chipset voltage
and oh yea dam...i forgot to change my timings...still running at 2-2-2-5

i really do appreciate the help guys..i think i mayb gettin somewhere

DAM froze on the car test of amd nbench....but passed super pi....and weird thing...in the 1m calculation my 2.4ghz was 1 second slower than my 2.35ghz??
i think i need to loosen my timings

I do not think you have ample power. The DFI manual is wrong, period. www.dfi-street.com is a site owned and run by a few DFI employees. Please read the link I posted for you earlier. The board takes a lot to run, as the link I gave you describes.

DFI-street is run and posted on by people with a lot of experience with the DFI boards, and they know what they're talking about(especially since some of them are DFI tech).

Yea, it is good memory it just needs some special TLC to get its full potetial. I have never used a DFI board but from what I have read the bios is overclocking friendly and allows you to have a lot of liberty when it comes to increasing your voltages to your memory and processor.

If you have sufficient cooling in your computer then I would say you would be ok to increase your ram to 3.0 or higher. Memory with BH-5 chips do not run at optimum until they are pumped with 3.2 or 3.3 volts.

I would recommend you set your divider even lower and lower those timings like you said you are going to do. Set VDimm to 3.0 and up your Vcore to 1.50 and see how far you can push the processor. Once you know that you can work your way back down to a memory divider you want, ideally 1:1 if you can. To do anything like that though you definitely will have to increase your VDimm to 3.2 or 3.3. Good OC-ing.

he i also think upping that vcore to at least 1.5 /1.55v would help so much i had my 3200 running at 2.35 stabel with 1.45v and tehn upped it to 1.55v and can get 2.5ghz stable i cant wait until i get my dfi hopping for 2.6ghz stable or higher

Definitely up that VCore. The reason your SuperPi time was slower was because you memory was set at the 166 divider. 1:1 ratios with overclock produce the best results. So running at 2500MHz with a 5:4 divider you will have slower results with running at 2500MHz with a 1:1 ratio.

hmmm i was sure i had enough power....but the other guy said my psu has dual 12v rails..which is apparently a good thing...does anyone think i really need a better psu or is my current one fine??

yup ill bear that in mind and up my vdimm to 3.2.....will it be safe to run my ram at that voltage??..

i think ill have to get some better cooling to up my vcore...im on stock right now, but ill be getting some as5 and a TT blue orb 2 soon

ahh so that explains my slower super pi time........well thanks very much guys for your help...i really appreciate it, but right now im tired and ill be off to bed, but 1st thing 2mrow im going to try all your suggestions and post back my results..thanks once again

I'm not too familiar with the DFI but here I go; put your HTT to 4x (this times your FSB should be around 1000), up your RAM voltage to at least 2.8 volts, definitely loosen your memory timings, and give your CPU a little more vcore. As far as the memory divider, keep it at 166mhz until you can get prime or pi stable. Once you achieve stability, then you can tweak the memory timings and voltages a little bit more.

It has dual rails, but it doesn't say the amperage for the rails, so for all we know it could be a total of 18. Definitely don't buy a new PSU without knowing for sure though. Try a friend's or something.
