Hehe... Sadly, I can't seem to raise the voltage for CPU... So what I'm trying to accomplish here is at least get to the highest ballpark overclock that my CPU can handle without the voltage increase... And I seem to be near to it... I'll try to max it out at 3.3 Ghz flat and hope I succeed!!! Thanks a bunch guys!!! ^_^

Yeah... Managed to get it working on 3.3g Ghz flat... Prime95 Stable at 4 hours or so... Will try final stability testing tomorrow...

Okay, my final question: I was able to get a solid 400 Mhz increase from 2913 Mhz to 3313 Mhz using FSB 245 x13.5, but it bought the ram to 406.7 (my default RAM value is 400), bringing RAM speed to about 813 Mhz, while default value is 800... Is it safe or posibble to increase the speed of the RAM as well? Sorry for the noob question, and will appreciate your replies... Thanks in advance!

It's perfectly safe.

Almost all DDR2 RAM can safely take at least 2.0 volts, if they've got some heatspreaders.

Even if they didn't, you're still pretty safe.

Yeah, thanks, did a little research on that one, hehe... I hope that my RAM can take an extra 13.4 Mhz without ever needing to overvolt... Thanks a lot guys, all I can say is it's mission accomplished for now... ^_^

Yea, I found that with my RAM, I didn't need to overvolt until about 860mhz. It ran just fine on stress tests etc etc up until then on 1.85v, which was what the BIOS set my RAM to.

Glad you've got that overclock working! Careful though. It's never enough. You're gonna keep thinking "Oh man how much farther could I push it?" and then it's a never-ending cycle.

That, until I get me a board that can overvolt the CPU higher than 1.4v, hehe... Thanks again!!! ^_^
