I'm very new to overclocking but after doing some ready I went for it last night. I'm not getting the amount of OCing I was hoping for. My system is:
AMD Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego 1GHz FSB 1MB L2 Cache
MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum
2 X Corsair CMX512-3200C2PRO = 1GB ram @ 2-3-3-6 1T
ATI RADEON X850 PRO 256MB AGP

BIOS settings
I got the FSB up to 220 (230 won't post). Then I dropped it down to 210 because Gaming was freezing up. My ram is set to 2-3-3-6 1T w/2.75V and AGP Volts at 1.60.
Do I need other setting like CPU voltage upped? CPU-Z reads about 1.38V.
I have HTT mult. at 5. Any Ideas???

I can't get it much past 230 without upping the Vcore. I really don't think my CPU is that bad and yours probably isn't that bad either. There's something that limits the overclock with these Neo2's. Once you get past that, it might overclock better...

The 1-5x of the LDT is for RAM.
default: 5x 200 = 1000
Changing the speed ...
201-250 use a 4x
251-333 use 3x

OK but 250 X4 is still 1000. So where does that make anything better?

The max is 1000!!!
So upping the HTT requires reducing the LDT multiplyer to keep @ or under 1000MHz but best between 800-1000 to keep the RAM stable... in part.
RAM stability requires the above and vdimm increases and perhaps timing changes and involking a divider if necessary!

Oh... YES it does make it better because the data is transfered faster thus requiring less cycles ( or a lower LDT multiplyer).
