For the comp in my sig:<br />
<br />
with default mulitplier (10.5) I can set fsb to 191 MHz which gives an OC of 2005MHz, just over 2GHz, which is what I want. but whenever I try to go any higher than that, windows willl not load. BIOS loads and i get all the correct POST messages, but then I get a windows error that has just a few lines of white text at the top of the screen: it says something along the lines of not being able to load a config file, put the setup cd in to repair windows, etc. i just press esacpe and the comp reboots. when i go back into BIOS and set the FSB lower, then it's happy again. have i reached the limits of my computer? my 2GHz OC is by no means stable: a Prime95 will yield an error in a matter of minutes. cooling is stock, cpu temp during Prime95 torture test is 44-45C. any comments/suggestions?<br />
<br />
btw, ram freq is 166/200 for DIMM1 and 200 for DIMM2

Have you increased the voltage from stock? You may need to do this to incrase the cpu frequency further (if your motherboard has a voltage increasing option).......beware that you may need to upgrade the stock cooling if you do

Yes! Raise VCore up to 1.7v and try again!

i agree 1.7, youre going to fry the chip if you keep it at that level for too long. I wouldnt go above 1.65 if on air.

Yeah, please don't go over 1.65 with stock cooling. And it would be better not to use.5 multiplyiers. Use 10x and up the FSB to 216 or so..<br />
<br />
Oh, and you have different mem settings for both DIMMS? How do you do that?

temps are going up to 52C when running prime95 so i took vcore to 1.65. right now im tentatively looking for a wc setup, or just an aftermarket fan. either a bigwave 745, custom wc, or some reallllly quiet fan....not sure yet<br />
<br />
with regards to the memory, the stick in the first slot is made for either 166/200MHz, your choice, the second stick is made for 200MHz.

Socket A can take up to 1.8v on air no problem. Just watch the temps.
