    Okay, I set all of my settings to what you suggested, except for the Static tRead Values for the two channels, because I am not sure exactly what "6/7-10 333/B MCH - 8/9-12 400/D MCH" means... sorry lol XD. It just has an option to pick from a range of 5-15 or something (which I'm sure you already knew.. :) ).

    Those are the temps in CoreTemp at full load under Prime95. I noticed however that if I put the FSB at 315 instead of 316 it ran at about 54/55 under 100% load instead of 58/59... might do that.

    Also, would I get better performance if I left the memory multiplier on Auto and have it run at 948 and 5-5-5-15 timings, or go to 2.40B for 758 Mhz and run at 4-4-4-12 timings? I tried the 3.20B and 2.66D multipliers at all suggested timings and system failed to post every time.

    My last questions are 1) If I ever try to overclock with raising the voltage of my vcore, how would I go about that (how much would I raise the vcore, and then how much on the FSB) to find a good overclock. Also, how high is it safe to raise the vcore? and 2) Could it be my memory that is holding my system back?

    6/7-10 333/B MCH - 8/9-12 400/D

    Means if you are using a Ram Multiplier with B on it use 7-10, and if you are using one with D on it use 9-12. The 6 on the B would be hardest to get stable, same applies to the 8 on the D strap

    Only you can benchmark the different settings you asked about and see which is best for your setup. Using 2.40 and 3.20 depends on all other settings such as your FSB, all other ram timings, and voltages used

    Did you read the overclocking Guide? I know it is not based on your board, but it will provide you with some answers to your last few questions about overclocking and how to go about doing it. Please do give it a read thru a few times

    Alright,

    I am a little confused, I can't seem to get the system to boot into windows with the above settings. I was able to get to 3.8 using the settings I posted initially and it seemed stable at that point. Right now I am having a problem getting more that 3.8.

    I am having to do a repair of my OS at this point because of the BSODs that I was getting trying to get into windows --sigh-- I am hoping that I don't have to do a reinstall.

    Please post for me the exact settings you are using so I can advise of maybe why you are having issues.

    Ever use Acronis True Image? Works great and only take a few to mirror your system and then only a few minutes to mirror the drive back if your install fails

    I will post them this evening as I am at work now. I reinstalled

    I tried to use the windows complete system backup that comes with vista. When I booted from the CD, it couldn't see my RAID array?? I even tried to load the RAID drivers from my USB thumb drive. It would say that it was loading drivers and then give an error that the "install was not successful".

    I will need to be more careful.

    Thanks for your help.

    Now, if I just change the the FSB to 400 and manualy enter my RAM timings and keep everything else on auto. I can boot into Windows.

    What do you think?

    There are so many variables.
