    System memory multiplier (spd) [2.00B] << You may need to use 2.00D if you have that choice
    Memory frequency (MHz) 830

    Dram timing selectable (spd) [manual]

    ************standard timing control****************
    Cas latency time 5 [5]

    Rank Write to Read delay 3 << Set 6
    Write to precharge delay 4 << Set 6-8
    Refresh to ACT delay 54 << Set 62

    Read to precharge delay 3 << Set 5

    Static tREAD phase adjust 0 [auto]
    ***********system voltage NOT optimized!!************

    System voltage control [Manual]
    DDR2 Overvoltage control [+0.05] << Sey +0.1 as .05 may not actually be giving you 1.85 at all. What do you see in the PC health section for Dram voltage with this setting of .05?

    CPU voltage control [1.35]
    Normal CPU Vcore 1.32500V << 1.35-1.4 (you can lower later, I suggest starting high so you can rule this out as a issue)

    At 2.50 GHz, you're trying to run a 39% o/c with the stock Intel heat sink and fan. I highly recommend that you closely monitor temperature readings. EasyTune is a minimal monitoring tool. There are many excellent freeware monitoring programs. Check out RealTemp, CoreTemp, HWmonitor and SpeedFan. You want to use a program that displays cpu core temperatures, not just cpu and system temps.

    Even with a very good heat sink & fan, you will need to perform extended stability testing to ensure that your system is completely stable. An unstable system can lead to file corruption and force you to eventually re-install your operating system and all the programs. If your system doesn't freeze or suffer from BSODs, file corruption can still damage any file type; documents, photos, etc.

    sorry was out the day b4.
    hey Lsdmeasap i did the overclock settings that u told me and it worked. although my cpu vcore is at 1.4 and the temp for it is at 57c idle and 71c load ---> at the highest temp that it reached. hope u can get back.

    Nice to see you have your overclock working. As said above stock heatsinks are not good for overclocking. Although 1.4V is safe, it may not be for a extended period of time at 71C, but you dont load your PC like that always anyway

    But the important question here is, what was 71C??? Your CPU or your core temps? You need to worry about Core Temps, not CPU temp

    If your CPU Temp was 71C then your cores were likely 85-90C+ which is NOT GOOD at all.

    So please let us know what you was looking at for temps

    lol yes....:] . well ill be planning to get a new fan for my cpu. any suggestions for it[case is big will fit anything.]
    back to the temp. i was using CpuID hardware moniter and i read the cpu core. core 1 and core 2 were almost the same temp so i read the highest of the cores which is 71c. i had to switch back to 2.2ghz overclock cause i was scared to burn the cpu [not rich]. but with 2.2ghz on load [playing GTA 4] it reached the max temp of 57c. so ill be planing to buy a new HSF for my cpu. so is that the basics to overclocking?. if it is i wish to overclock to like 3.0 ghz + .
