After using this guide: <a href="http://www.overclock.net/faqs/31782-how-find-limits-my-cpu-memory.html" target="_blank">http://www.overclock.net/faqs/31782-...pu-memory.html</a> i decided to take a stab at overclocking my pc.<br><br>
i got these results<br><img alt="" src="http://picsorban.com/upload/overclock6.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
this is after i got:<br>
325 as my max htt on the mobo<br>
2695 mhz as my max cpu clock<br>
231 as my max fsb for the ram<br><br>
i'm using an a8n-sli deluxe mobo, ultra 600w psu, and 2 sticks of kingston infineon ram and 2 sticks of corsair ram at a timing of 2.5-3-3-7<br><br>
what can i do to get my o/c up to a stable 2.7ghz as i've heard that this is possible on air?

Well I'm no AMD guy, but if one were here, I bet they would suggest to get rid of your 4x512mb RAM and go for 2x1gb as AMD's mem controllers don't like 4 sticks...<br><br>
But just wait for one of them <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

i'm VERY noob to overclocking, so is it safe to assume that a 231 max fsb is pretty crappy for my memory?

That is a good OC for low end memory so I'd say you have some of the good stuff!

Hi matey.<br><br>
I'm no expert, by any means, but I'm pretty sure the CPU will go to 2700....<br><br>
I've been making enquiries about memory, and everyone is advising me to get 2Gb of 2 sticks, for the dual channel purposes.<br><br>
Bloody good score, my highest with my system so far is 5725 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Mad">

</div>Well I'd say yes,<br />
but then I know about as much as you <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
2Gb of 2 sticks would sort you right out, but then compare my score to yours......<br />
<br />
You must be doing something right <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" />

</div>if i were to switch out the memory to maybe 2gb (2x1gb) of g.skill ram, do you think i would be able to up my memory fsb and maybe raise my multi or divider to get a higher oc?

Like me, comparing our systems give you a clue <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /> <br />
