you know, you don't sound too sure...okay i will do it!!! ^^ just kidding, man. anyway. okay so i need to increase vcore? and decrease dram? i don't understand why that works or even how it works. maybe some studing is in front of me...

yeah you should study up some, read some ocing guides.

asus probe should be able to monitor your temps for you.

oh, and I almost forgot to ask what model RAM you have. and you'll want to make sure you lock your pcie at 100Mhz and agp/pci at 66/33

the reason you probably need more "vcore" is because the processor generally requires more power as it goes faster.

the reason you'd need to lower your RAM settings is this: when your system speed goes higher, so does your RAM-- some memory can't take that high of a speed, so you'd lower it to accomodate.

dont go increasing vcore until you have got as far as you can go on the standard settings. You will probably get to around 2300 or more on the stock vcore. As mentioned the pci needs to be locked, it might do it automatically, an asus owner needs to step in to anwer that one??? set the pci bus frequency to 33 and the pci express bus to 100, that will help out and be safer, any faster and you can cause damage. That motherboard also has the VIA chipset by doing some reasearch and that to say the least is not the most attractive thing at all. You will still be able to overclock quite well but if you plan on going very high then that motherboard will not be stable. sorry. I have had a via chipset before and couldnt go past 260 htt with out it being unstable, see how you go, you might have some more luck thatn me with it!
http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/mai...ve-deluxe.html I got some info from that site to help out a bit.

wow, you guys are awsome...
yea, okay, so i lock the pci to 33 and the pcix to 100 and my ram to 100? i think i might hold off until i get more ram. (by the way, and i know this isn't the forum, but what ram do you reccommend for overclocking? i have heard corsair and kingston, any personal prefs?) and then, after locking pci, pcix, and ram, i bump the vcore up unitl i get the desired clock speed? and this will definetly help out games?

well when it comes to RAM brand is many times just perference. The main thing is what IC's the RAM uses... that is the main determinant to performance. Since you have an Asus board the best overclocking RAM you can get would be Samsung TCCD. it will clock to about DDR600 which would be important for a high OC since your cpu only has a 9x multi. so 9x300 = 2.7Ghz

if you went with 1gb sticks then the best would probably be the micron IC's that are in the ballistix tracers or the Infineon C die found in OCZ platinum DDR500. next would probably be Samsung UCCC

anywho, I'm actually thinking about selling my OCZ platinum rev. 2 TCCD so let me know if you're interested.

okay, scary thing happened..i was trying to overclock and everything, and i had a few problems.
aight, first i locked mem at ddr333, pci at 33, pcix at 100
then i started increaseing my multiplier. well, for some reason it said i had less mhz than stock so i them increased some other setting (can't remeber) and then after a while i was back around 1800, well then my little woman(new asus boards have a voice error code message) she said could not boot due to overclocking. excat words. okay, so i set everything back to stock and then rebooted back into windows. and i do not know if this is related, but windows would not boot properly (wouldn't show login) so i went into safe mode fine and then used last known good config. what happened? and pelease somebody explain what on earth i am doing!!!!

well that can happen if you push your system too far. that's why it's always good to back everything up before you OC. stressed components can corrupt data or fry...

just take it slowly. have you found the max frequencies of each component individually yet? you should really start there.
