Thanks to everyone for their great input thus far! I really appreciate it! <br />
<br />
So here is the most stable setting I can get with load temps still around 44C and idle around 29C...<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
her eis the rundown:<br />
<br />
Multiplier set to 12<br />
vcore voltage at the low 2est possible --1.225 volts<br />
fsb 274.9 mhz rated at 1100 mHZ<br />
Ram 4-4-4-4-12 T2 @ 2.1 volts<br />
<br />
so I am topping around 3.299 gHz per core, stable in prime 95 running different tests on each core, for over five hours...I am happy.<img src="/images/smilies/gunner2.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Gunner2" class="inlineimg" />

also ,my ram is running aorun 860 Mhz

You shouldn't use both blend and LargeFTT's in one go, you should run SmallFTTs for 8+hours first then run blend on one core

ok..so one instance of smallftts one each core? for some reason when I go to start the same test on the other instance of prime 95, it doesnt start right away..the first instance goes at 100% of the core, 50% of cpu (task manager) and when i go to run the other same test, the other core just kinda piddles around...when I have them running different tests thoguh, they both take off. m<br />
<br />
nevermind..they are both running small now.

also, one other thing...I hav e heard thatr running fsb to ram in 1:1 is the best ratio...what if my ram will not take 1000mHz? I can only get it to go to 850 - 860 with current timings...advice?

I guess I could....do you think that I can get this xms ddr2 pc 6400 c4 to run at 1000 mHz? and if I can, should I lower the FSB speed to match the ram, as I do not think my ram will go to 1100 Mhz

also, this is off topic, I am thinking of giving up on [email protected] and doing folding for this team...this machine should fo folding well, I would imagine.

again though, If i can get it to say 950 or whatever, it wouldnt make sense to lower the bus speed would it?

You have an x6800, you don't need to raise you FSB to the point of maxing out your RAM, just raise the multipler<br />
<br />
Keep the RAM at 1:1 if that is your question

ehh..ok...I couldnt keep the multi stable @13, which is why I am back down to 12, from 11. now that it is stable here, I may start to look to alter FSB and RAM settings....right now, the fsb is aorund 1100 and the ram is around 850....I could perhaps meet in the middle around 950.....<br />
<br />
I am just happy to be where I am thus far...a little progress at least.

You couldn't get it stable at 13x? Did you try raising the vcore?<br />
<br />
You may or may not be able to 900mhz out of that RAM, it all depends on the chips

let me reword it...I can run 13x multiplier bt my vcore temps get around 55 - 59C and that made me kind of nervous.

ok..i actually was able to lower the voltahe below 1.3 down to 1.275 and the max core temps are around 52C...still tunning the small settings on prime 95 per core...stable so far at 3.46 gHz per core...again, let me both thank you guys and ask another question...am I better off with a higher multiplier and lower FSB, or vice versa?

A higher FSB with a low multi is better than a higher multi with a low FSB but that is only because of the RAM and the speed your running it at. For the CPU it doesn't make a difference.<br><br>
Once you find your max stable GHZ on the CPU, lower the multi to and see at which point your RAM maxes out on (slowly raising the FSB) then find a middle ground between the max CPU FSB and max RAM mhz

yea right now back down to 12 multi and running 1.22 volts...good temps...fsb running @ 285 (1140) with room to go, and the ram is maxed out at 880Mhz...so here I guess is where I am.
