Did you lower your cpu multi to take your proc out of the equation as the limiting component? If not, knock your cpu mutli down to like 7X when you are trying to find the max speed of your ram. Also, what timings did you change, and what timings are your ram rated at to run at pc4800 speeds? Also, is your ram bh5, bh6, TCCD or TCC5? What are the recommended voltages of your ram? And what exact model of ram do you have?

Let the RAM burn in for a few weeks or so, RAM dosn't always reach it's max rated speed out of the box, especially if it's pc4800. Give it some time, then crank up the speed.

well i didnt lowered the multiplier and the ram timings r 2.5-4-4-10, and im 95% sure they r tccd and the recomemded voltage r from 2.7 to 3.1

Well, it could be that your CPU is holding you back, not your RAM... Maybe. What divider are you running at?
edit: it could also be your PSU, are you still using that crappy Raidmax PSU? If so, that is your main problem, my Raidmax 420 watt crapped out on me after a few months of owning it, the rails were also very unstable even at time of purchase.

What processor are u using? what u need is set the divider to 200 1:1. without knowing what processor u have u can try this variations.
Dram: 200

Fsb: 255
Ram: 255 mhz
Multi: 11
Cpu:2.805 <----overclocked cpu speed

Dram: 200
Ram: 281 mhz
Fsb: 281
Multi: 10
Cpu: 2.81

This next set up im not sure if its going to be possible like i said im not sure what proc u have this is for the 3k+ with x9 multi

Dram: 200
Ram: 300mhz
Fsb: 300
Multi: 9
Cpu: 2.70

Hope this helps u

just changed settings, multi to 10 and i fsb to 2.65

if you haven't yet, set your Command Rate to 2T. Asus boards seem to have a problem around this speed at 1T.

ok i have a winchester 320[email protected] . Ok it seems like the cpu is holding me back cus my ram is running at 292mhz while the cpu at 2335mhz(2.3) with a multiplier of 8, so i mean i dont know what to think, any ideas?

by the way i tried the second one and didnt work. it seems like the cpu cant go over 2.5 or 2.56.

I have the same CPU...mine maxed out at arround 2.6 while still having some stablity. I am running it at 2.5 and it is rock hard stable. that is a 25% OC and I ussually shoot for a 20% for day to day use as i firmly believe that most hard ware can go at least 20% faster than stock.

I did have it up 2.85 before, but that was with one stick of ram and it would only POST and boot one out of ten tries. I never could even get a bench mark complete.

damn man, i guess i'll have to stop dreaming of the 3.0 i thought i could get with this ram but looking at the bright side i will push the cpu the further (2.5 now) and the ram i will see wat is the highest is can go but really stable.

people have gotten to 3.0 and above with a 3200...infact there is a bunch of threads here on it. I think it depends on what mother board they used and how many volts they were feeding the CPU and not so much what ram they had. And I am pretty sure in no case was it truely stable...and besides, these are AMD's they don't need to go as fast. A 2.0 AMD will out perform a 3.0 Intel most of the time....if not all of the time, but intel is better at multitasking and junk...I don't multitask. That's why I got seven computers in my home office.

i dont know how they got there cus this rig wont even post with something over 2.7, at 2.6 it maybe load the windows screen but after loading it restarts, but anyway i think the purchase of this ram was a waste of money since the other ram wasnt really holding me back the only thing i can do better is timings and fsb but das it.
