It is completely stable but it runs really slow! Could it be the memory? I have 2X512 generic DDR running at 3-3-3-8. Maybe I did soemthing wrong. I just kept on increasing the CPU clock 5mhz at a time and the computer got slower and slower as iwen on but now that its at stock settings, it runs fine! please help, i just spent about a $100 on cooling to practice overclocking before I got a new computer.

What memory do you have? If you have cheap stuff, you may be getting errors even at a couple mhz more than stock.

if you overclocked with the bios then look under dram configuration, or something like that, and look for ramspeed, should have numbers like 400,333,266 or dividers like 1:1 4:5 2:3 etc etc , if its not 1:1 or 400 , then you have a divider on.

i don't think i have dividers, all i can change with the memory is the vdimm voltage, memclock, and dram configuration options

it would be in dram config.. also do you have cool and quiet enabled in your bios? if you do disable it.. it throttles your cpu way back.

In the MemClock Index Value set it to whatever MHz you need to, to get it around 200MHz and not higher. For example if you set your FSB to 220 and your set your memory to run at 166MHz it would actually be running at about 183MHz. 220 x .83 = 183MHz. If it was set to 180MHz then it would be 220 x .90 = 198MHz. A good way to find out if it is your memory that is causing issue is run MemTest86 at your stock settings and overclocked and see if you get errors in either scenerio. Change that HT Clock Multiplier to 4X too. Ideally you want that to be 1000MHz or lower and it is calculated using your FSB too. So for everything 201-250 use 4X, and 251-333 use 3X and so on.
