    OK I will create a list of baseline benchmark data and record it so I can compare it to overclock results. I will also test the GPU with standard settings and overclock settings (I will not OC the GPU).

    What BIOS settings should I change including memory and I'm not sure about being able to edit my multiplier..?

    Actually am at 3.0GHz (12.5x240). RAM was set to run at DDR2 800 speeds (200MHz/3.33C) and MemTest86+ 4.10 passed at least one test. IBT shows a 5 Gflop difference in speed (and passes 5 tests stable). Lin X shows around a 17 second difference in completion time. It SEEMS stable. I would like to know what else I can change and how much farther I should push it (CPU and Mem). Btw Furmark barely changed (I got +1 on my score). MemTest+ (before completion) and BIOS Screen Shots

    The following might be stable:
    333MHz x 9.0 = 3.0GHz cpu
    333MHz x 2.40 = 800MHz memory

    CPU Vcore = one or two steps higher might be needed.
    Overall system performance will be better with the higher FSB setting (333 versus 240).

    To ensure that your system is stable, run Prime95 tests (Blend, Small & Large FFT) for at least 6 - 10 hours each.
    Memtest86+ and IBT/LinX tests are NOT sufficient stress/stability tests.
    Your graphics performance will probably need a moderate overclock for significantly better gaming performance.
    If you're not into gaming, graphics overclocking probably won't be needed.

    FWIW, my E2140 (1.60GHZ) cpu was fully stable with a 100% overclock to 3.20GHz (8 x 400MHz).
    My best SWAG is that your system might o/c to 3.20GHz or a bit higher.

    Be sure to save your current "stable" bios settings as a saved bios profile.
    You should be able to save up to eight different bios profiles.

    333 MHz x 9.0 = 3.0 GHz (2997 MHz) CPU seems to run stable in Windows. I'll be running Prime95 Blend test overnight.
    333 MHz x (333MHz freq/2.40B multiplier, SPD Timing Auto) = 800 MHz memory (399.6 MHz). MemTest also says DDR-799 instead of DDR-800. Is this normal/OK?
    I bumped up Vcore two notches (in BIOS) from the 1.22500V [auto] setting.

    For the record 7.5x400 (3.0GHz) CPU and 400MHz 2.00D memory did not work with this setup.

    799MHz is OK, I just rounded up to 800.
    I usually run a quick 5 loop test using IBT or LinX using the maximum amount of available memory. This quick and dirty stress test gives you an idea of overall system performance. Your GFlops score with the new settings should be somewhat higher than your earlier 3.0GHz/800MHz settings. Cpu core temperatures should be slightly higher too.

    If the current settings are stable, the next step is to set:
    • 333MHz x 9.5 = 3.16GHz cpu
    • 333MHz x 2.40 = 800MHz memory

    or
    • 350MHz x 9.0 = 3.150GHz cpu
    • 350MHz x 2.40 = 840MHz memory

    With increasing memory speeds, you will have to loosen the primary memory timings at some point.
    For the best overall system performance, I suggest that you concentrate on increasing cpu speed, not memory speed.

    As Chike suggested, be sure to run a memory benchmark with each new setting, even though your memory speed will stay near 800MHz.
    Keep in mind that increasing CPU Host Frequency will also improve your memory benchmark scores.

    It will help us and other thread viewers if you include a screen-shot with the following:
    • Memset using the SPD and ">>" tabs
    • cpu-z CPU and Mainboard screens (several instances can be run at the same time)
    • EasyTune6 --> TUNER tab --> ADVANCE tab --> VOLTAGE tab (only the Voltage tab is needed)
    • CoreTemp screen [for your cpu's VID (Voltage ID)]
    • Include the IBT (or LinX) results and the memory benchmark scores also.

    You would be surprised how often we can find errors or problems when all of this information is included for each bios settings change.

    **edit** 7.5 x 401MHz might be doable, but more voltage tweaks will be needed.

    350 might be too much for this CPU, try with lower ratio first(<= 3GHz).
    333 is good up to 4.16GHz, I'd stick with it if it's stable and leave higher FSB for the end.

    Like Chike has said, there's no way you'll get much past 333MHz FSB on an E5000 series CPU. Their default FSB is 200, so even 333 is a bit of an ask for most CPUs in that range. With those chips, you will most certainly have to take advantage of the high multiplier to some extent.

    Keep FSB at a point where RAM can easily be set to spec, IE 266MHz or 333MHz, and raise the multi.

    Woke up this morning and last night's 3.0 GHz Prime95 (Blend) "Torture Test completed 341 tests in 7 hours, 48 minutes - 0 errors, 0 warnings." Seems stable.

    Now running @ 333MHz x 9.5 = 3.16GHz CPU, same memory as before (2.40B). Passed 20 minutes OCCT Linpack. I will run a longer test of this configuration later. Everything seems fine so far.

    Around when should I change tactics (and/or settle down and accept these much faster speeds)? profJim, I'll post more requested screen shots of the stable OC next reboot.
    Anyway, I felt I'd note that I play PC video games (Left 4 Dead 2 in particular) and am hoping to get some performance boosts now that I added a GTX 460. There was a noticeable bottleneck between my Mem/CPU and this new GPU upon first use.

    Please post full BIOS settings also.
    What are core temperatures with Linpack?
    Personally I use Linpack(LinX) to measure Flops only 3-5- runs, I have found Prime95 much better to test stability.
    What are baseline and OC Flops?

    Baseline LinX 20-test average is 15.6421 GFlops.
    After OC they've gone from around 16-19 GFlops. I'll get some hard numbers soon.

    Core temps did not exceed 56 C where mine is stuck at. CPU temperature reading did not exceed 45 C and was jumping anywhere from 30 C to 42 C during stress testing (SpeedFan reported).

    Will post full BIOS settings of 'Stable' OC today (333MHz FSB, 3GHz) along with other requested information some time today.
