I finally got my CPU to boot into windows with FSB=310x9=2.8 (RAM timings loosened), but I had to use 1.75 Vcore (which I know is way too high), I got the BSOD after trying to run a benchmark, I'm stable with 300x9=2.7 with 1.65core, Will I never be able to reach 2.8 with this chip, am I overlooking something??

my multi is 3x, and I raised the chipset voltage to 1.7 which is the max, the stock was 1.6 i think

What are your timmings, and are you using a divider if not try putting it on a small one my DDR550 will get 310fsb with 3 5 5 11 timmings.

No, but I've already tried all the different dividers to no avail, I must be missing something, I cant get stable with anyhing over 2.7, is that the chip limit??

That very well could be the chip limit, from what I gather after a little research, most people can't push it higher than 2.4-2.5

If you haven't already, try a 5:6 divider, upping ram voltage, changing ram to 2t, or loosening timings a bit more.

If none of that works, then congrats on your OC all the same.

EDIT: What core is your CPU?

you are lucky to get it to 2.7. That chip usually tops out at 2.6 for daily use. you are running way too much volts into a dual core on air. If you wanted to overclock, you should have got the 165

The X2's are average overclockers, nothing special
