    If your room temps were 3 - 5 degrees (C) lower, your cpu core temps would have been lower by about the same amount.
    Nice work.

    Yay, what prime torture should I do? How long 24hrs this time?

    My preference is to run the Blend test first, as it alternately works your cpu (using small FFTs) and memory (using large FFTs).
    Ideally you would perform each test for 8 - 12 hours or longer.
    Given that we're going to tighten your memory timings shortly, you can defer the large FFT test until later.
    If your system passes both the Blend and the Small FFT tests, we can move on to tightening memory timings and trying the 2.00B system memory multiplier with tRD set 1 step lower (tighter).

    **edit** Please post the Memset/cpuz/ET6 screen-shot now or after your Prime95 tests.

    Finished doing 11hrs of stressing cpu

    Core Temp Readings

    Low
    Core 1 - 35
    Core 2 - 31

    High
    Core1 - 59

    Your Cas5 memory is holding you back somewhat.
    High performance Cas4 800MHz and Cas5 1066 memory will usually allow 4-4-4-12 primary memory timings up to 875 - 925MHz memory speeds.

    With your 443MHz FSB, the following changes will improve memory performance if it proves stable:

    System Memory Multiplier ---------------: [2.00B]
    Static tRead Value ---------------------: [8] <-- for both memory channels [A snd B]

    You will need to repeat your stability tests.

    I wouldn't be concerned with the Everest L2 scores, the bottom line is how well your system performs when gaming or using your other applications.

    The Everest scores will improve with a higher cpu FSB (and lower cpu multiplier), but your memory will limit how much higher you can go with your current memory. Using this approach will require tweaking memory and voltage settings and require additional stress testing at each step. My best guesstimate is that overall system performance gains will be very small.

    I did the settings above that profJim said and my computer didnt boot up..

    What would be a good clock speed for my cpu + ram
    Is 4.20ghz too high? for my ram?
