like the title says, Id like to get my oc a bit higher.
Id like to try and get my fsb to 200, but my ram is only PC2700.
right now I have both ram and cpu at 170 with my ram timed at 1:1 2.0/4/4/8
and its rock solid with an oc of 2.2ghz. Id realy like to try and see 2.3-2.4

what would I have to change my mem timings to to try and obtain a cpu fsb of 200 but keep my ram from having a fit on me?

EDIT
just realised I put this in the CPU section. mods feel free to move if need be.

Go into your Bios and select to "lock" the ram speed to 333mhz or 166mhzDDR.
You may have a setting like 6/5 or some thing set that to 6/5 and run your fsb at 200.It should boot up! I have PC3200 so it WILL run at 200mhz but...I wanted to squeeze the best speeds out of it so I locked it too 333mhz and tightened the timings to equal or faster then PC3200!!! run it at 11,3,3,2 REMEMBER TO DROP THE MULTIPLIER!!!!!

the only real way is with patience. Set the timings all the way up, increase the voltage and work your way down untill memtest86 shows errors then move it back up to where it was stable.
Try increasing 0.2v (you could go higher but I have no idea what your memory will take with out cooking it).
try changing only the CAS to 2.5 and see what it will do then try CAS 3

well Im sad to say I tryed what Ge-Force said and now my new mobo wont boot.

Ive tryed using the reset jumper on it and removing the battery over night so I guess I'll have to rma my board and when it comes back be happy with the oc of 2.2ghz.
