I think I just found my max stable overclock with aircooling and PC3200 ram.... My A64 3000+ Winchester topps out stabily at 2.61 for a grand total of 810 aircooled megahertz
w00t w00t!

Just thought I'd post about me doin' the happy dance. Click my rig icon to check out it's new benchmark scores in Sandra (P4 eater!) and Super Pi!

I have the same setup and was having a little trouble getting it any higher then 2.1. could you post all the changes that you made in the bios to help me out? Thanks

When you say you have the "same" setup is it exactly the same or only partially the same. Give me a rundown on exactly every piece in your system. Your maximum overclock could be determined by a few things and I already have some things in mind but I need some system details to validate my thoughts.

Post up specs and I'll definately try and get you taken care of!

Ok considering your your cooling setup is good enough, and your psu has a decent 12v rail you should be able to get a good overclock since you're essentially running the same mobo that I am.

You need to start by upping your vdimm to 2.8 and up your vcore to 1.5. Go into your advanced bios options and lower your HT Multiplier to 4x to begin with. Now go back into your power bios area and start increasing your cpu frequency in 5mhz jumps until your computer won't post or wont load into windows. Once you've reached that point you need to go back into the advanced bios area and then into your ram configuration area where you will need to start slacking your memory timings (however you should be able to hit 266mhz fsb with stock timings since ur running PC4200).

That's your first step, lemme know how it goes!

Your ram may operate stock at 2.8 and you're underpowering it at 2.5.... Crank your vdimm all the way up and see if you notice a difference.

tw33k, as soon as I score an XP-120 that's what I'll be runnin' at

Hey man I have that same ram I have gotten it stable to 250 with 2-3-3-8 timings. I may could go higher but haven't yet. What is yours running at and what timings? Also what Voltage?

My ram is running at 2.5-4-3-6 at 2.5 vdimm. Your ram can definately be pushed quite a bit further than 250.
