    Hm, I see... So does it really matter if I use a 333mhz FSB, 9x multiplier with a 2.40B strap? Is there any difference in performance?

    I'm unsure of how the performance is affected and I'm sure you can find a stable configuration with your settings. My memory frequency is at 800mhz because I don't see a need to go over or under that amount for a 3.2GHz OC.

    Ok. That brings me to another question: My ram is overclocked, the voltage is set at 2.1v for the OC, the board runs it at 1.8 corsairs site says 1.9. Since I do not need to OC the ram for a 3.2ghz OC (such as yours) should I use the same 1:1 ratio as you for the ram and fsb? Also, does OC'ing the ram voltage and speed of the memory cause any long term side effects to the memory?

    I think you're going to get mixed opinions on that as well. It's probably best to do your own research on actual performance gains as opposed to side effects, safety, etc.

    Personally, I don't think you need to overclock the RAM if you just want 3.2GHz. I would also decrease the voltage to 1.9 to reduce RAM heat.

    The computer rebooted for some reason during prim95. I do not think it was due to lack of voltage because when the system rebooted into windows, it was prompting me for a driver install for a SCSI/RAID config. So I am thinking it was because I was installing some software while it was stress testing.

    Anyways, I have the memory voltage reduced to 1.9v and its running 1:1 now at 3.2hgz w/ a 8x400 multiplier.

    I read up on this and it seems you get a slightly better through put with the higher FSB. Applications may load a bit faster, thats all.

    Well I am 24hrs stable with 3.2ghz. I am happy there.

    I did notice windows xp reports my current speed at 3.60Ghz. I am assuming because of the 400mhz FSB. Why it is multiplying it by x9 instead of the x8 that I am actually using I have no idea but cpu-z has it at 3200mhz. So its all good.

    I I take it that I can turn all of the energy saving features back on and use even install Dynamic Energy Saver with no problems correct? I turned all of this off, per the overclocking guide, when I was testing the limits of my memory. What is everyone's opinion on this?

    You should test P95 with the energy saving features enabled. If there are no problems during the tests and afterwords during normal use, you should be fine.

    So far I'm 12 hours stable with P95 with EIST and C1E enabled. CPU vcore is set to 1.29375 (1.26 actual).

    resolved my issue this afternoon.
    I went back to all stock and it will resume from S3 without issue.
    Target OC was 3.2 so I tried 9*355=3.195 instead of 8*400=3.2
    I tried leaving the multiplier at 9x and set the CPU host freq to 355
    PCI exp freq to 100
    MCH Freg Latch to 333
    Sys mem multiplier to 2.4B (memory running at 852)
    everything else is set to auto.
    I didn't touch the memory settings.
    I am now able to resume from S3 sleep without the boot loop

    Hey, I have another question. My Geforce PCIE 7300 card is running a little hotter than usual. It's normally around 43 degrees celcius but right now its at 53 degrees as I am running prime95. Is this normal? Is it running hotter because the FSB is running at 400 if so, should I be concerned?

    Everything else is set to auto? Are you overclocking? If so, that could be a bad idea. you may want to adjust the vcore and the cpu pll to non auto settings.
