I am able to run at 230x11 which is 2.53 GHz at 1.488volts using VCORE overvoltage(1.400+.100mV). I have tried changing the FSB to 240x11 but the computer wont start up when I save and continue with the changes and then when I manually restart it, it tells me that overclocking has failed and for me to go back into the bios and fix the problem or to start up the computer using the standard defaults. I have tried this sites(<a href="http://www.anandtech.com/cpuchipsets/showdoc.aspx?i=2452" target="_blank">http://www.anandtech.com/cpuchipsets...oc.aspx?i=2452</a>) overclocking methods and the only thing that I can ever accomplish is 230x11. Confused???? I am so close to maxing my processor out at 2.64 at 240x11 or I would even be happy with 235x11 GHz on air and only need to squeeze out another .5GHz to .7GHz. Does anyone know what I can do to make my computer stable at 2.58GHz or 2.64GHz while not going past the point of no return on custom air cooling? Any feedback would be nice. Thanks. <br />

Make sure you are running the latest BIOS for that motherboard.<br><br>
Also try looser RAM timings this should give you a little more headroom for FSB.<br><br>
Have you also tried upping the chipset voltage 1 increment.

How do you know what Bios your running..the version and all. To up the ram timings I need to change the pattern to what? I don't know what the most stable pattern would be for the SuperTalent 3200 DDR ram with heatspreaders. I have just made an attempt to up the voltage one increment with the FSB staying put at 230 and I think that the computer was overfeeding to much voltage to the processor at 2.54GHz because the temperature topped out at 63 Degrees Celcius which is very hot. If you have anymore advice I am willing to sitt back and listen because I am learning myself as I take the overclocking adventure. Thanks

Post a CPU-Z of the SPD and current timings in the Memory tab.<br />
You may want to try a higher divider and use the 10x, just a thought. <br />
Your on track but do only try small increases of a few MHz as you reach the extreeme of the CPUs possible speed. A quick test with OCCT untill you hit instability works great, then perhaps some others to confirm stability.

2529.8MHz processor speed at 11X at a 230 FSB. I am running 90nm at 1.440volts on the processor. My memory frequency is 148.8MHz and the FSB<img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />RAM is CPU/17. The cas# lanency is 2.5clocks, the Ras#to Cas#delay is 2clocks, the Ras #precharge is 2clocks, the cycle time is 6clocks, the bank cycle time is 8clocks, and the Dram Idle Timer is 16clocks. My memory again is the SuperTalent3200 DDR-SDRAM with heat spreaders(2 Gigs). I hope this can help you to understand where I am coming from. Also, the computers processor temperature at stability is 50-55 degrees celcius and that is running under a large load. On thing that I am noticing is that my +3.3V is going haywire from 4.08V down to 2.0V speradically. I hope this is not a problem.
