Does anyone actually think i can reach three ghz (or almost three) with my current configuration? i dident think that my ram is that bad for overclocking
Unless I'm confusing your motherboard with another ati board, your current motherboard OCed very nicely. I'll look for the reviews I read and see if I am mistaking your board for something else. I'll edit this when I find the link..

It will be best to see if you are on the latest BIOS and in particular what model of MB...

For example the Sapphire PURE Innovation PI-A9RX480 has an extensive range of BIOS controls for both CPU and Memory, prob even more than a DFI!!

Look in your BIOS and see the Overclocking section - DRAM Section - Etc...
There must be these settings... check each Menu Item and Sub-menu.

my motherboard is a Pure Crossfire Advantage PI-A9RD480adv oh and btw now that i update my bios i can change HAMMER FID and HAMMER VLT and heaps of other stuff im gonna try OC it better now. My new max is 300 freq its not limited to 232 now yay! anyways wish me luck...

Edit: Argh! theres no Overclocking options and i still cant find anything on HTT/FSB options, however after raising my DRAM volts to 1.90 and chipset to 1.35 and freq to 230 my computer threw a spaz, i had to turn it off at the wall and now my firewall needs a reinstall and my computer thinks it the 1st of Jan 2003. Ohwell, it was fun

so after reading overclocking guides for about 3 hours i am still really lost, i cant seem to find anything on HT or HTT i do have something called LDT which isen't really mentioned. The LDT values can be set to 200, 400, 600, 800, 1GHZ or Auto. Defaut is on Auto. I tried to put it on 800 but it made a mess and i couldent boot up. Also is 1.808v good for 2.4ghz. what would be good for a 2.6, 2.8 or 3ghz?

It would be good if you can capture some BIOS screen shots, so we are able to see what you see.... a Digital camera is required and upload them as .jpeg - small file sizes.

LDT is likely to be the HT equivalent being x1, x2, x3, x4, x5 but represented against PC3200 modules running at 200Mhz which is the default.

Assuming 1.8V is the Vcore, then it is a extremely high and not good for Air or water nor should it be required to get to 2.4Ghz. You should not go above 1.6-1.65v on good Air.

Lower that, that's WAY to high. try 1.45 volts.

I hope that's a software error giving improper voltage readings. Stay under 1.65 volts on air. 1.8 volts is too high regardless of temperatures and/or cooling being used.
