I am really trying my hardest to get the big 4.0 stable but after trying my best with the knownledge I have I still cant get a stable system.<br><br>
I currently am at 235 FSB, with stock voltage for the CPU and ram; 1:1 ratio @ 400Mhz with 3 4 3 10 timings.<br><br>
I might be completley wrong in the way I am approching things but with my fidling I went from 30 seconds on OCCT to 5 minutes and then my system reboots.<br>
My temps are 40C load and 35C idle.<br><br>
Thanks <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Thumb">

Buy a motherboard that can and will overclock, ECS are not meant for that. <br />
<br />
Here, Sladesurfer is selling his <a href="http://www.overclock.net/1330974-post1.html" target="_blank">P5WD2-Premium for $60</a> shipped, you will not find a better deal with a motherboard that will certainly overclock that 3.40ghz pass 4.0ghz. I'm sure with the proper cooling you could get the 3.40ghz to at least 4.20ghz. <br />
<br />
So jump on that and you'll get yourself a nice OC and better performance overall.

Why cant I at least try and see if I can get a stable OC on this motherboard?<br />
It has all the settings any of the Asus boards would have. <br />
<br />
Besides ECS used to be low end but they have been getting a lot better, so before I even think about getting another board I would like to see what this one could do. <br />
And altough that Asus P5WD2 Premium is tempting but it requires DDR2 800 as its standard and I am buy new ram whatsoever.

any suggestions on what to input, ram timings are really not my thing.<br />
<br />
Also the vcore for the cpu is set to auto, I am guessing I should set it manually to stock?

well firstly i would set the vcore manually to stock<br />
<br />
then i would lower the timings to 4-4-4-12 <br />
<br />
the timings your using are really tight for ddr2.<br />
<br />
also intel's like raw speed more than tight timings <img src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thumb" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
then if it still isnt stable i would bump the vcore one notch
