Heya all, this is like my second post here i think
but anyways i just got my p5kpl/1600 put the computer together and installed xp and atm trying to get some overclocking happening
but i cant push it further then 1.97GHZ
any higher then 246 Front side bus and the comp won't boot
i have also push vcore up 50mv i beleive :S ive got ram set to 667, vram set to min..

Also should i set pci freq to somthing im running a 9800GTX+ im pretty noob sorry just want to play some games and see if i can get the adobe suite to run alittle better
but any suggestions would be great. OH and running stock cooling

Keep the PCI frequency default clocked. Increase the CPU voltage after it gets unstable.
It goes red after 50mv is that a prob?
Pushed vcore 2 max +150mv still couldn't move fsb any higher :S
bla this board apperently sucks for overclocking
oh wells guess im stuck at 1.9ghz better then nother

if it's the p5kpl-vm your chance for overclocking aren't very good
I have that board and it only has the FSB, the pci frequency, and the ram frequency.
Like i had it my ram clocked @ 667 and it overclocked to 2.86GHZ so then oc'ed to 800mhz
and with it clocked @ 800mhz it overclock to 2.81 @ 965MHZ

it depends on ram mainly cuz thats a big factor for this mobo.
I had the OCZ platnium rev2 gave me like no overclock
the patriot signature gave me a 10% overclock
the patriot extreme performance ram i have now gave me like a 20 % overclock.

So only thing i can say is ram. for even trying this mobo.
Yea cool thanks found out by upping the ram voltage i could overclock it alittle more so if i have some better ram i should be able to get a stable overclock well pass 20% can get about 23% stable overclock on OEM crap ram so im hoping if i pick up some of those nice corsair ram chips with the nice heatsinks on em
i should be able to overclock it a fair bit.
