    Hello Lsdmeasap, hanks for answearing. I have seen waht ylou post, but I have a questkon before trying it. I have seen that the memory frequency changes from1088. In the ram manual it says it should bee 1066. Will I have any problkem changing it?
    I have also found something.
    If I use:

    CPU Clock ratio........... 8X
    Fine CPU ratio............. 0
    CPU Host frequency..... 430 Mhz
    System Memory Multi.... 2.40B (Memory sets up to 1032)
    Timings...................... 5, 5, 5, 15
    Dram volt.................... 2.20

    All other feature in Auto and standard.
    I have run Prime95 with 4 tests and it looks stable. Temps max in load 55cΊ.

    How do you see it?

    Thanks

    Edit: I have read that I could also put 333 x 10.5, volt. 1.26 and ram to 320B to get 1066. Is this ok? Maybe volts are too low, but if I make this changes I do not have to touch anything else about ram and other voltages.

    Thanks

    1066 to 1088 is only a few Mhz, it will be ok

    Anything is ok as long as it's stable. There is just many ways you could run different speeds, so I just choose one to give you to try

    I gave you a full list to try above, why are you back now all on auto? Just wondering?

    Check your timings with CPU-z in the "Memory" tab
    CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting

    It's ok, but if you want to run 3.4Ghz you should start with the settings I gave you above, don't be scared :)

    Since I have read so much about people doing overclocking and not getting good answear, and also because I have never done it.
    I have try your settings and system start up ok, I test with prime95 and if it fails I will try pulling up the voltage as you told me. I will begin with lower voltages.
    Thanks very much
