Been running at a PCIe frequency of 113MHz for 4 months (24/7) as well.
I simply cannot go over 3.6GHz unless I raise the PCIe frequency to 113MHz.
No problems whatsoever so far.
Just confirming Kindredice's and Chim3ra's words.

AwDxTc, if 105 is the max your ever tried then it wouldn't hurt to go for 108 for example and see if that allows you to overclock any higher.
Don't leave it at that frequency all the time if you have fears of damaging your video card... just do it when you need to overclock to play a game.

With the P5WD2 E, this is not an issue, not at all, he shouldnt have to adjust his PCIE 1 notch, his problem is not the PCIE it is his ram, he is running it 2:1 and is actualy pushing the ram not the CPU.

Drop the ram to a 1:1 ratio, drop the timings, and bump the FSB some more. Your problem is not the PCI so dont even mess with this. There you have problem solved, now its up to you to try it out.

on the pci-e issue..

it can damage your card i screwed the first one i had... while only trying to get past 222fsb.. had to raise the pci-e to get any higher than 222fsb nothing else would work.. dont remember the setting the card got fudged at. i believe that it is my mb.. my ram is good

That board is not the problem, that's one of the best OC boards out there. If you're hitting a wall, it's the RAM or the CPU, that's for sure.

Yeah I just confirmed early it has nothing to do with the pci-e freq because I bumped in increments to 115 with no avail, I'm going to try and adjust the memory and see where that gets me. I'll report back soon.

So its not extreme to push over 105,even 115. Better search before comment.

I fixed the ram and that appears to be the trick... I may have set it too low though because it's hanging at the Windows welcome screen so I'll have to do some more tweaking. I'll get back to everyone and let you know how it goes. By the way I'm at 230fsb with the windows hang.
Is the reason Windows is hanging is possibly that my current timings are 5-5-5-12? Should I possibly tighten those up?

Another Question I have is that all voltages for the FSB Termination, MCH Chipset, and ICH Chipset are all set to "auto" I know it would probably be better to manually adjust these settings but I'm sure what's the optimal settings to start these off at...any ideas?

You realy dont need to worry about the secondairy voltage's untill you start running into walls again, but Ive never realy noticed a stability increase while adjusting those voltages. Anyways heres a couple pix of my settings @ 4.0. Like I said in the PM dont try to go strait for these as you will probably not make it that far, but its a rough estimate. BTW I think your timings are way to loose for a lower speed, if you are 1-1 you should try 3-3-3-8 or 4-4-4-10 or some where in that range, if you try to use my timings your system will not boot so dont try it.

My system won't boot anyway with anything higher then 226fsb!!! lol I can't understand what is going on. I've tried running it 1:1, 4:3, tightening the timings to 3-3-3-8 and 4-4-4-10 with nada. I can't even get it to post past 226. It just completely shuts off. I've never had this happen to an oc I did.
Here's some pics of what I'm at currently...

What is you ram voltage? SOunds to me like maybe you need to clear cmos and start over with a 1-1 ram-fsb ratio. If that doesnt get you any further I dont know what will. Maybe Ill think of something else, but there usualy only a couple things that would keep it from posting and thats Vcore, Vdimm, ram timings or the CPU just doesnt like to overclock. I dont know what else it could be unles mayber you have a Raptor hard drive. Ive heard some problems with raptors and overclocking.
