i was fooling around with 'superstep' a program taht came with my motherboard for ocing. i increased the fsb to something like 203 or 204 just to see if their was a little difference. the cpu speed went from 3007 to 3045.
i ran 3d mark 03, with the same gpu frequencies as last time.
this is the orignal test

and my second test
http://service.futuremark.com/orb/pr...jectId=4592540

my score dropped, and so did the cpu score, by almost 60 points.

does anyone know why? maybe be cause of my slow ram, instead of 200:166, now its 204;166?

DOH! I have to log in??

Just don't mess with the ocing programs. They do NOT do you any good at all. System instability, jacking up of HDD, re-installing of Windows... all the pain that comes with overclocking programs for CPU.

Just don't do it, my friend.
I'd say CPU instability is the issue. Before running benchies, try running a stability program to see if the CPU is stable, if you really want to overclock.

Go as high as you'd like, but don't forget to check for stability.

I've had some experience with one of the overclocking softwares (Clockgen), and even a small overclock caused instability for me. Just keep that in mind.

Using BIOS is the best.
