Hey guys i finally got my 3000+ to o.c a bit it woulnt go past 220 so i put it to 240 and it boots fine , now im at 250 on stock air and stock heat compound, am i safe speed fan says "Temp 1:25 , Temp 2:27 and Temp 3:70, but temp 3 has always been 70 so i dont really mind it. Is this safe to stay at and my HTT is 3x it wont boot at 4.

if your temps and voltages are fine, then you should be good to go. The HTT multi just needs to be set so your system will boot and be stable. So if x3 is the multi, that's good.

Alright thanks, do you think this is the highest i can go or can i go higher and what can i use for stability testing , this is pretty much the first time ive overclocked my cpu.

As far as the CPU is concerned, it can go WAY higher than that. I'm not familiar with your board though, so I don't know if your mobo will take it much higher :-/

if your motherboard allows you to increase the vcore (cpu voltage) to 1.65v as a maximum, then you should be good to go.
You can get that chip close to 2.6ghz.
Another major concern is if the mobo is stable with higher FSB(HTT) speeds...having it stable at 300 would be ideal.
What are your settings currently?

FSB
multi
divider
vcore...etc

FSB=250
multi=9
divider=166
vcore=1.4 , auto
htt=3x
havent touched anything else on memory or cpu
i think my motherboard allows me go up to 1.7? i might be wrong though

looking good, great board, depending on the bios rev, the core volt selections go up to 1.7, with an additional option for up to +.3v though you sholdn't need/want more then 1.8 for anything...

fredster, lets go for 2.4ghz. I will also post an overclocking calculator that you will find useful for calculating overclocks, dividers, etc....here we go..

267 x 9
vcore 1.5-1.55 (try 1.5 first) These are safe voltages, not harmful.
HTT x 3 (HTT doesn't have affect on performance, it needs to be set for stability)
Memory divider 166
Memory voltage 2.7-2.8 (these are safe)
Memory timings default (you need to post a link to your memory, I dont know what you have)

This should be it, try the 1.5 vcore first, then increase to 1.55 if it isn't stable.
It also could be your memory that cannot run at the quicker speed, you could always use the 133 divider just to make sure it's only your cpu that could be the cause of instability. please post a link or tell me the default timings and everything you can about them.

Here's the overclocking calculator.....this should all work if your memory is halfway decent...

K, I can try it on v core 1.5 but wouldnt that give me alot more heat with that stock cooler and i dont have AS5 on it .. what would happen if i left it on default voltage with that o/c?

yes, that's good. What did you do differently this time? Did you figure out what you were setting improperly?

The voltage I recommended is completely safe (1.5-1.55)....I doubt your temperatures would even break 50c under load. You should be monitoring them while running prime95...next step is going for 2.5ghz.
