Ok as you can read by the specs below what my system is compiled of.

I just ran CPU-Z and i found out that my 2600 is a Throughbred: here are the specs:
Voltage :1.696
Stepping: 1
Model: 8
Family: 6 Ext Family: 7

Core Speed: 2071 MHz
Multiplier: x12.5 (Unlocked BTW)
FSB: 166 MHz
Bus Speed: 333 MHz

L1 Cache: 64+64Kbytes
L2 Cache: 256 Kbytes

Ok now for the BIOS settings:
CPU Fre Multiplier : 12.5
CPU External Frequency: 166/33
Mem Frequency: Auto/333
CPU Vcore: Auto/ Manual
CPU Vcore:1.65

And my RAM is 2.0-3-3-7 for the settings...

I am going to get http://www.case-mod.com/store/produc...roducts_id=801 for my HS replacement with 2x Zalmac Tornadoes fans (92mm)

My ram is PC2700 and i know that i am going to need at least PC3200 to be able to get high speeds. I really need some help here. Thank you guys in advance!~!

EDIT!!!!!:: Should i change the Multiplier and the FSB or both or the V or what...

I've got a T'Bred 2600+ like yours. and just so you know, I had mine running @ 2.5GHz without any problems (its currently running @ stock speed due the mobo its in)

The RAM I used when oc'ing my 2600 was Corsair TwinX XMS3200Pro Cas2 (2 x 512Mb) with timing of 2.5-3-3-8

Before you start oc'ing I would recommend to read the oc guide (https://www.overclock.net/overclock.p...king-guide.htm) as this will give you a step by step process on how to oc (i used it when I first started to oc).

If you're set on that heatsink have a look at the thermaltake tower112... It's the same but all copper instead of aluminum which will help get better temps...

Another goods ones to look at is the thermalright SP97, SLK947.

Ok, Your board being an A7V8 means its a VIA Chipset, Which also means that there is no PCI lock. If you noticed when you upped the FSB by 1 mhz it read 167/34, the 34 is your PCI bus speed. PCI Bus speeds much over 35 mhz can corrupt a harddrive, not to mention a sound card , vidcard, and anything else on the pci bus, SO, tread lightly. It only goes back to 33mhz at 200, then starts back up above it. Your best bang for the buck, would be to back your multi down, and go to 200. to be on the safe side, take the multi down to a point where you at at or below the 1916mhz your cpu is at stock, then start playing from there.(200x9.5)

What's the one that Cooler Master has? It's like the Silent tower thing but has serrated edges on the fins to increase the surface area and performs pretty well from what I hear. You probably want to reconsider the fan choices as well...that's gonna be one loud mofo

I've been looking into a new HS and Fan combo myself. After doing alot of reading reviews and forums I would recommend getting the thermalright SP-97 with a 110 cfm or more fan. It is from what I have read by far one of the best heatpipe heatsinks out there. But they are really hard to find as they are being phased out for its replacement the SI-97 I believe (not available yet). I found them at www.vibecomputers.com on sale for 49.95 CAD!!! A great price, but sale is only on until Oct. 14.

I'll have mine in a few days and I'll give an update as to the difference it makes from my current Vantec Aeroflow.

if you can't find a sp-97 the slk-900a is a good clip on heat sink. Not as spectacular as the sp-9 but in sheer numbers it is not far behind. If you can't find the sp look at the 900a from thermalright. Overclockers.com has tested a bunch of heatsinks and the 900a ruled until the sp-97 came along.
