Just up the fsb in tell it wont boot, then maybe a little more vcore, keep it under 55c under load. you should be safe with 1.57 vcore with air cooling.

After that I'd assume I'd shoot for the highest FSB setting it will boot with without crashing, then down my Ram from 1:1 to 166 mhz? I just don't know how ram timings/voltage works, so I'd like to avoid that until needed. Thanks guys!

That's exactly what you should do. Set your CPU multi as high as it'll go..and up your fsb as high as possible. When it stops going...up vcore...it that doesnt' start to help...put a ram divider on.

If any of these guys help you...make sure you inform yourself of the "rep +" button...just wanna make sure these guys get credit for their hard work.

Thanks Sideburns and jrabb. I didn't know that's how the rep status worked, but I've accordingly did that for all you that have been helping me. Now that I have the confirmation on that's what I should be doing, I'll keep plugging away and let you guys know my results. Thanks again!

Keep your FSB multiplier at whatever it is stock and ram on the 166 divider, the HT frequency still at x4 and move up the FB from there. Start at 210 FSB then go up 5 everytime. When you get to 250 FSB then put the HT Frequency to x3. Once it doesnt boot after a step up then don't be scared to put the voltage up a notch. Keep it under 1.6 and you'll be fine. Id say just leave the ram timings alone till you figure out high a FSB you can get stable. For ram timings I suggest you go the the manufacturers site and set what the optimal timings are. GL

So just to know...what are you at right now?

To test for stability..download a program called SP2004. It is the best program you can get to test for stability. Run the "large fft" test for about 10 minutes each time you make a jump...then when it starts stopping tweak it a little bit. After you just can't make it more stable...back off a bit, and see what happens. After you think it's stable...try to run it for at least 6 hours.

I'm at 230 FSB right now, and upped the voltage to 1.475. I have SP2004 downloaded, but wasn't sure what test to run so thanks for that bit of info.

I'll keep trying to bump this up as well as tone my ram down to 166 after I run this SP test. Thanks!

I'd leave the ram until it gives you troubles...that's how I do it. But if you're more compfortable that way, then go ahead...just don't go TOO low...that's just as bad.

You should be able to get pretty far on that chip. That's plenty of voltage for now. Let us know how the SP tests go.

Sadly it crashed on the 130 when I ran it. After that, everytime I tried to boot to 130 it was locking up before I could even log in I have it at 125 now but I know this thing can push harder than this! I set it to 1.5 voltage just in case. I don't want to tinker with my ram too much anymore since last time I bumped it down to 166 it started having all those crashes on loading.

Also I even tried 3x at 130 and it was still crashing after it crashed the first time around. I sure hope I can successfully push this thing pass 2.25 gighz.

Edit: Should I try dumping down my CPU/FSB multiplier? Does that help a good deal with this kind of situation or is it really for when you're about to cap out and need to push that extra few FSB mhz.

130 FSB? Im a little confused, did you mean 230? I would think that a FSB of 225, FSB multi of x10, vcore of 1.45, HT Frequency x4 and a divider on 166 woudl boot up perfectly. Ther has to be something that we are missing here. Can you give us a screenshot of of CPU-z or showig the setting you are running or write up of what setting your bios is showing? Even without a divider you have some nice RAM that should be able to handle 225 or 230. Post back with all the info you have. If you dont have CPUz, download it as it will tell up alot. Thanks

Sorry about that, that was definetly a typo. 225 FSB is booting fine with x10 vcore of 1.5 ( I just had it higher for the sake that my computer is plenty cool enough) with no divider. Anything about 225 though is giving me problems and I'm not too sure what I should adjust to get the best of it (maybe my ram voltage?).


EDIT: Here's a CPU-Z shot. Looking at it saying my voltage is 1.44 it throws me off a bit as I know I have it set to 1.5 in bios.



Thanks guys
