    Yes CPUID HWMonitor is fine, it is core temeratures I was referring to.
    It is only a statistic test, the longer it's running more chance it will catch an error.
    You can just leave it running overnight. Temps will reach maximum after 15-30 minutes so if they are ok by then there should be no problem.

    I tried it for half an hour and core temps reached 62C. I'll run it longer as you advised tomorrow. It seems my rig got stable with the new rams again ;)

    Good luck.
    In case you get errors/BSODs a tick or tow more DRAM Voltage and maybe one MCH Core should get it stable.

    Oops! Something is wrong. When I run CPUZ I realized that my memory timings were 5-5-5-18 instead of 4-4-4-12! When I went into BIOS it showed me a warning saying "The system experienced boot failures because of oc or changes of voltages. Last settings in this page may not coincide with current H/W states" What now? But when testing with memtest my timings were shown as 4-4-4-12. What is wrong here? I saved the settings in BIOS and it booted ok. Re-checked the settings and no warning this time, all seems ok. Should I worry that my BIOS is playing james bond behind me? :P

    It is always a good idea to go into BIOS MIT after making changes to make sure they are taken. A multi boot usually indicates failure.
    Settings are the same as you posted before just the timings and DRAM Voltage changes?
    Try higher MCH Core it is likely to be needed, and 2.1v on the ram, you may lower them later. Also leave driving strength auto or set it 800.

    If all failes we can try the FSB OC with CPU at stock speed. Even with 5-5-5-18 timings memory performance should be greater tha 1066 at 266MHz FSB.

    I upped mch and dram one notch. All seems ok, but I'll test with prime95 tomorrow. I'll post again if something fails. See you tomorrow.

    My original recommendations were on the conservative side to see if your memory will cooperate with each other.
    I agree with Chike's suggested settings unsing 800MHz memory speeds with 4-4-4-12 memory timings. tRD = 5 and possibly 4 with your stock 266MHz FSB which will give you optimal memory performance.

    Read the mobo user manual about loading and saving up to 8 different bios profiles.
    You can overwrite an existing bios profile with a newer setup at any time.

    After your current setup is stable, you can try using a higher FSB setting with a lower cpu multiplier if you want better system performance without overclocking your cpu. The only downside is that you'll have to repeat your stability testing to ensure that your new settings are stable.

    We'll be here if you want to get closer to the bleeding edge of performance.

    Thanks profJim. I need some explanation here; do you mean "static tread value" or "trrd (in Advanced timing control in M.I.T) "by saying trd? Will they provide a significant performance? Btw if I oc I'll include cpu too :) My 4-4-4-12 settings seems to be accepted by the bios. Now I'm testing them with prime95, 3 hours w/o errors so far.

    tRD = Static tRead Value in BIOS, Performance Level in MemSet(utility).
    Lower values result in greater performance(read/latency) but may compromise stability or require higher MCH Core voltage.
    6 or 5 for current timings/FSB should not be a problem, 4 may be edgey.
    Memory performance has normally a slight or no noticeable gain on every day use, depending on the pattern used.

    Thanks for the info. Mine is 7. As far as I learn, 4-4-4-12@800's performance is very close to 5-5-5-15@1066 is that true? In that case my current config @800 is enough for me.
