When pushing HIGH FSB to find your system FSB limit always go with lower CPU multi so you don`t have to worry about Vcore and heat..
500x7 is much faster for the system`s overall performance than 450x8..
On LGA 775 every FSB MHz counts and 50MHz FSB is A LOT..
And your RAM would run at 1000MHz and with 500MHz FSB it would give you almost 9GB/s READ bandwidth..(you can check RAM bandwidth with Aida or Everest program)..
Edit: since you seem to know something about this motherboard aswell (?), maybe you know why everytime it boots up it tells me no hard drive found, and then proceeds to boot into windows fine anyway? I have the OS HDD in SATA slot #1 too.
