    2.0 for the ddr2 voltages and 1:1 for the memory-cpu ratio

    Can you use one of the templates here to post your settings?

    What BIOS version are you using, and can you post a link to your ram or give the model #.

    On the MAIN page of your BIOS please press Control + F1, the screen will flash, then go into the MIT Section and give us your settings again. Looks like a few are hidden from you >>>

    This is Just a template I use to ask people their settings, pay no attention to the numbers in it, replace with yours

    The way you should be doing this is in steps, if possible, when attempting to tune ram, make sure your not overclocking your CPU at the same time, just incase it is your CPU, or the northbridge of your motherboard under stress holding you back.

    I suggest lowering your cpu multiplyer to 6 and then see how high you can raise your FSB. I dont know for sure with your board, but you should also have different ratios rather than 2.5 for memory. Generally you want to use the highest Memory Multiplier and the lowest FSB as your board wont be the best overclocker, but you need to find your max FSB first to see if an overclock is possible.


    I suggest you try the settings below
    Robust Graphics Booster___________ [Fast]
    CPU Clock Ratio ____________ [6]
    CPU Host Clock Control_ [Enabled]
    CPU Host Frequency (MHz)__________ [266] > Raise this now along with a higher system memory multiplyer)
    PCI Express Frequency (Mhz)_______ [100] This just wont boot at all if increased even by 1mhz
    C.I.A. 2__________________________ [Disabled]
    System Memory Multiplier_____ (SPD)__ [2.5] (Do you have any higher numbers here?)
    DRAM Timing Selectable_______ SPD __ [Manual]
    memory frequency (mhz)______ 800___ [Ideally 1066, the closest you can get?]
    Performance Enhance = [Standard]

    CAS Latency Time________________ [6]
    Dram RAS# to CAS# Delay_________[6]
    Dram RAS# Precharge Delay_______ [6]
    Precharge Delay (tRAS)__________ [18]

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

    System Voltage Control____ [Manual]
    DDR2 OverVoltage Control__ [+2]
    PCI-E OverVoltage Control_ [+1]
    FSB OverVoltage Control___ [+1]
    (G)MCH OverVoltage Control [Try 1.28V]
    CPU Voltage Control_______ [1.300 to begin with]

    Limit CPUID Max. to 3.....................: [Disabled]
    No-Execute Memory Protect............: [Enabled]
    CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E)................: [Enabled]
    CPU Thermal Monitor 2(TM2) ...........: [Enabled]
    CPU EIST Function.........................: [Disabled]

    So Skillz, did you get anywhere yet?

    And please do let me know What BIOS version are you using, and can you post a link to your ram or give the model #.

    If not, please give me your full settings and I will see if I can help you. G31 is not a very overclockable board but you should be able to get somewhere at least
