    Righto, trying to get my system to overclock.
    Any changes at at cause it to beep 3 times are saving and exiting the BIOS. It then resets to the default settings for it.
    Put these setting from an earlier suggestion in:
    Try this and see if you get anywhere >>>

    CPU Clock Ratio ____________ [10]
    CPU Host Clock Control_ [Enabled]
    CPU Host Frequency (MHz)__________ [200]
    PCI Express Frequency (Mhz)_______ [100]
    C.I.A. 2__________________________ [Disabled]
    System Memory Multiplier (SPD)____ [4.00C] Also try Auto here
    DRAM Timing Selectable_______ SPD __ [Manual]

    Performance Enhance = [Standard]


    CAS Latency Time________________ 5
    Dram RAS# to CAS# Delay_________5
    Dram RAS# Precharge Delay_______5
    Precharge Delay (tRAS)__________ 18


    ACT to ACT Delay (tRRD)_________ 4
    Rank Write to READ Delay________ 4
    Write to Precharge Delay_________ 6
    Refresh to ACT Delay______________ 56
    Read to Precharge Delay__________ 4
    Static tRead Value_______________ 10
    Static tRead Phase Adjust________ [Auto] << Always Auto

    System Voltage Control____ [Manual]
    DDR2 OverVoltage Control__ 0.1V << Try first, then try +0.2 (after you set this, reboot and check in PC health section and see what these settings are actually giving you as it may be off more then a little, so best to check)

    PCI-E OverVoltage Control_ 0.1V
    FSB OverVoltage Control___ 0.1V
    (G)MCH OverVoltage Control 0.2V << Try .25 or .3, and then try nothing extra as well

    That is not overclocked? Please give us your overclock settings you try that fail, and only those settings (I mean remove my suggestions and put the exact setting you used)

    Sorry just want to be sure and the above is stock speeds so I thought I better ask.

    Thanks for reminding me of the issue though, lets see if we can get you going at your overclock speed

    Hi, thats exactly what I put in without any overclock added and it does the 3 beeping thing.
    Which I believe is what was making people think there is a issue with the RAM.
    If I leave it totaly at default I can add 5Mhz to the CPU host freq and it POSTs but 6MHz or more and there is nothing.

    Performance Enhance = [Standard]


    CAS Latency Time________________ 5
    Dram RAS# to CAS# Delay_________5
    Dram RAS# Precharge Delay_______5
    Precharge Delay (tRAS)__________ 18


    ACT to ACT Delay (tRRD)_________ 4
    Rank Write to READ Delay________ 4
    Write to Precharge Delay_________ 6
    Refresh to ACT Delay______________ Set 64
    Read to Precharge Delay__________ 4
    Static tRead Value_______________ Set 9
    Static tRead Phase Adjust________ [Auto] << Always Auto

    System Voltage Control____ [Manual]
    DDR2 OverVoltage Control__ 0.1V << Set +0.2 for now
    PCI-E OverVoltage Control_ 0.1V
    FSB OverVoltage Control___ 0.1V
    (G)MCH OverVoltage Control 0.2V << Set +0.2 or +03
    CPU Voltage Control_______ Set 1.35-1.425 for now, should be plenty

    Woot!
    It posts and I'm in Vista as I type!
    Now just to slowly increase the host freq and see where I get to I guess?
    Adjusting the mem timing to keep it as close to 800MHz too?
    What sort of upper limit should I be aim for please with the spec in my sig?

    Also big big thanks to everyone who has helped.

    Spoke too soon it would seem.
    Power the unit off, when I turned it back on started the mem check then shut itself off.
    Popped back into the BIOS all setting the same bar the host freq which back too 200 and clock control off and it powers on fine.
    One other thing from the list of things to try I can't find anything called C.I.A 2 to disable.
    Choose 1.4V from the menu and core temp shows the VID as 1.325V and CPUz shows th core voltage as 1.376v.

    Tried leaving a 10x multiplier, host freq 200 and enabled, and its all good.

    CIA2 may not be in your board as it is a budget model, it should be in the MIT Section right above memory multiplier though if it is in your BIOS.

    Did you try the Control + F1 hot key on the MAIN page? Press Control + F1 on the MAIN Page then the screen will flash, then go into MIT and see if you see the setting. if not it may just not be in your model. I can check your BIOS if you like to be sure, let me know

    So sounds like your 333 FSB Settings worked, but just were not very stable. You may have need a bit more vcore, or maybe you had a timing set to tight? Do you still want to try 333? If so give me the exact settings you tried and I will advise back, and please do keep trying you can get it!

    Yeah would like to try 333!
    I'd copied it exactly from the post above where it worked 1st,
    With these powers settings:
    DDR2 OverVoltage Control__ 0.2V
    PCI-E OverVoltage Control_ 0.2V
    FSB OverVoltage Control___ 0.2V
    (G)MCH OverVoltage Control 0.2V
    CPU Voltage Control_______ 1.4v but CPUz showed about 1.37v in the vcore.

    After it killed itself I had the side open and touched the northbridge, very, very, very hot to the touch. Everest showed about 40 degrees though.

    Which timing on the RAM (I assumed its the RAM) timing) are too tight?

    Only use +0.1 where I said, not +0.2 for all those and really PCIE/FSB do not even need the +0.1, I just noted that for stability Auto would be fine. MCH though will need +0.2-0.3

    About the timings, did you put exactly what I had? If so, not sure sorry I thought I gave you ranges I should have looked! None of those should be too tight, however try it again but this time with the voltages as I said and try 2.50A Memory multi. This will overclock your ram a little bit, but it should be fine.

    If no luck go back to 2.40B with all the same again, but more Vcore than you used before
