    Ok I'll use everest.
    Right now the system is stable but I haven't stressed it as of yet.
    The setting are by defaults from the BIOS.

    The settings that i've entered, were:
    FSB
    Strapping
    CAS/RAS 5 5 5 18 - I set them according to the lables on the sticks.
    Voltage for the RAM +0.3v
    and Voltage for the CPU two steps above stock. That's it. All the rest was done by the BIOS
    CPU: Intel E8500 @ 3.16GHz
    RAM: OCZ Titanium 2x2GB & G.Skill 2x2GB @ 800MHz
    MB: Gigabyte EX38-DS4 (BIOS F3)
    GPU: ATI Palit 4870 1GB Dual Edition
    PSU: ThermalTake 750W
    Cooling: Ximgatek Achilles 1284S
    Case: CoolerMaster 690

    EDIT: could you also post screen capture of MemSet spd(click sod) window?
    MEMSET IMAGE

    So what should I do next?

    Either test it for stability like this, or if you want to try the 432FSB with 2.66D memoty multiplier and PCU Ratio 8 that give about the same CPU clock (+36MHz) and memory clock, and then test stability.
    But make at least memory benchmark, everest or MaxxMem Preview, for comparison.
    Have you tried Static tRead Value 7 or 6 yet?

    Some leave memory sub-timings on auto, some, like moi, tweak them for max read/write and best latency.

    tRD has big influence on ram performance. bios spd figures not necessarily what auto gives.

    Chike, with the lower multiplier, what cpu voltage likely?
    (With old athlon 1.3 got a big boost by using highest fsb and lowest multiplier that gave 1.3, - does that still hold true with dual-core? )

    I haven't tried yet the tRead values, I have no idea what they mean.
    But first I'll do as you say. I'll benchmark it, but does the benchmarking software shows the tRead value? or is it called differently?

    Second, if I get the same CPU clock and same RAM speed, then why should I change the settings to the values you suggested? what is the benefit?

    What benefit? A performance increase at "same" speed, maybe measurable with 3dMark06, or any other system benchmark. One school of thought is to get it stable before increasing multiplier, and "stable" is not just running progs, because there's not much effort in that. Stable is when the overclock can run prime95 or similar for hours without errors.

    The ram benchmarks give you "read", "write", "copy" and "latency" figures that tell you how well your ram is performing. (Synthetic, but good indicator and useful.)

    When you change settings you can test whether it gives an improvement or not by comparing results.

    Memset can show the true settings, but some will not match the bios. For my board:
    Rank Write to READ Delay (tWTR) ______ 3 (+8 in memset) ie 12
    Write to Precharge Delay (tWTP) ______ 6 (+8 in memset) ie 14
    Read to Precharge Delay (tRTP) _______ 3 (+2 in memset) ie 5

    The rest are same as bios. Thats just an example, not recommending as settings 4 u. You can test settings in memset before entering them in bios.

    Looks like you guys are all set and testing here! Good luck with the tweaking, if you need anything from me feel free to give me a hollar

    LSDMEASAP: Thanks a lot :)

    Salty, Chike:
    Ok, so I'm gonna try and give a report of my memory read/write speeds with everest with the current settings as posted before and with your suggestion

    We'll see if there's any improvement. Later on I'm gonna mess with the tRead value.... hope it will become clearer and I'll wrap it up with good OC settings and performance.

    Anytime, good luck with the tweaking!

    tRD can improve things MUCH more than any other setting!!

    Ok here are the results form Everest Cache and Memory Benchmark:

    For FSB: 360 Multiplier:9.5 CPU: 3.4GHz Strapping: 3.2B RAM: 1152MHz

    For FSB: 432 Multiplier:8 CPU: 3.4GHz Strapping 2.66D RAM: 1152MHZ

    The second settings shows higher results. I have two questions:
    1. What should be the PCI Express Freq.? (current=AUTO)
    2. What tRead static value?

    See new MEMSET screenshot
