OK, I want to oc my opteron to 2.6ghz. What settings should I place in the mobo? Am currently running 1 stick of pc4000 ram as the other stick is faulty. I keep screwing up with manually setting the ram timings. My ram is meant to do 3.4.4.8 at 250mhz

for 2.6 you want to run 260 x 10. you might want to go into your BIOS and change the ram timings to the 3-4-4-8 speed as well. 3-4-4-10 wont hurt it either. i hear the CACJE are pretty good OCers and im sure you could do 2.6.

youre at 2.3 and your volts are pretty low so its a good start. just up the fsb up 5-10 MHz each time and if you cant boot, raise the vcore a .25 each time.

good luck! and too bad to hear about the other ballistix dead

That's right blazing. settings of 3 4 4 8 would work even for the most "value" of value rams. also make sure your hyper transport is set down, to 3 maximum to leave memory completely out of the equasion.
then later you can try to tweak the memory and find the max for that too.

You could start out with the SPD settings you find with CPUZ.

To find my mobo max fsb, I decreased the multiply to 6x, but should I either increase the memory timmings or change the cpu/memory ratio so that the memorys fsb is always below its rated speed?

I've tested out the max fsb for my ram and it is 305, 1:1, at 3-4-4-8, 2.85v and I can boot into windows safely. The cpu multi is 6x. But when I bump the multi to 10x and run prime95 i get errors. So can I rule out the ram and ram voltages and concentrate on the cpu voltage?

id have to say so, if you know the max speed of your ram si that high high then i would say you can rule it out and start finding the max fsb of your cpu.

It is a very sweet setup, good value for money components. With that kind of memory it will be a shame if your CPU cant cope with it, however do try a divider. Looks like you ve done your homework, i suppose setting the HT to 3x is a silly question?
