    Hope you have a good cooler, otherwise you might need to stick to 2.8-3Ghz or so.

    Be sure you are using the latest BIOS. If you need to update use Qflash or DOS. And for your initial issue about the windows CD and your hard drive. You need to set the boot order (1, 2, 3 setting) to CD first, then HHD if you want to boot to CD without using F12. I personally set 1, 2, 3 boot order to HHD, Disabled, Disabled, this speeds up booting, then you can use F12 to boot to CD when needed. Also be sure you go into the Advanced BIOS page at the top and into Hard Disk Boot Priority and move your HDD to the top of that list. If you update your BIOS, load optimized defaults after the update, then save/apply/reboot BACK to the BIOS, and set your SATA settings again. You want to be using AHCI, and have your OS Drive in SATAII_0 (First) and CD/DVD drive in SATAII_5 (last)

    Here's settings for 3.4Ghz, your CPU will do this no problem once you find the sweet spot for the voltages
    Robust Graphics Booster___________ [Auto or Fast]
    CPU Clock Ratio ____________ [8]
    Fine Clock Ratio ____________[0.0]
    CPU Host Clock Control_ [Enabled]
    CPU Host Frequency (MHz)__________ [425]
    PCI Express Frequency (Mhz)_______ [100]
    C.I.A. 2__________________________ [Disabled]
    System Memory Multiplier (SPD)____ [2.00B]
    DRAM Timing Selectable_______ SPD __ [Manual]

    Performance Enhance = [Standard]

    CAS Latency Time________________ 4
    Dram RAS# to CAS# Delay_________ 4
    Dram RAS# Precharge Delay_______4
    Precharge Delay (tRAS)__________ 12

    ACT to ACT Delay (tRRD)_________ 3-4
    Rank Write to READ Delay________ 3-6
    Write to Precharge Delay_________ 3-8
    Refresh to ACT Delay______________ 42
    Read to Precharge Delay__________ 3-5
    Static tRead Value_______________ 6/7 - set 8 first, then try 6/7 later (Lower is better for performance, so don't leave this high once you get going)
    Static tRead Phase Adjust________ [Auto]


    System Voltage Control____ [Manual]
    DDR2 OverVoltage Control__ [+0.200V] = 2.0V - Check your memory sticker, or give us the exact model number. Some Crucial are 2.0V and some are 2.2V (Old), and even some very new are 1.8V
    PCI-E OverVoltage Control_ [Auto]
    FSB OverVoltage Control___ [+0.1V]
    (G)MCH OverVoltage Control [+0.1V] << May not be needed, but set first, then try auto later
    CPU Voltage Control_______ [1.25]-1.425, this is all up to your CPU, some might do 3.4 using only 1.25v or less, others may need 1.4+

    Limit CPUID Max. to 3.....................: [Disabled]
    No-Execute Memory Protect............: [Enabled]
    CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E)................: [Disabled]
    C2/C2E State Support....................: [Disabled]
    x C4/C4E State Support..................: [Disabled]
    CPU Thermal Monitor 2(TM2) ...........: [Enabled]
    CPU EIST Function.........................: [Disabled]
    Virtualization Technology................: [Disabled] Enabled if you use Vmware/Virtual PC

    Integrated Peripherals
    Legacy USB Storage Detect___________________[Disabled] *Note* Must be enabled to flash from USB

    Ok i put my os hard drive in sataii 0, and dvd drive in sataii 5, but when i put in ACHI mode, it says its search for hard drive, and it never loads windows. When i put in ide mode, or raid/ide it loads windows no problem ? what am i doing wrong.

    I also followed settings for overclock, i set to 400 fsb for 3.2 on the processor and it booted right up no problem, im going to go higher, and play with voltages and prime 95 it. I have a aftermarket cooler, its not like top of the line, but m much better than stock. Thanks for your help, i will report back.

    One other thing, i am using my 160gb raptor hard drive, i thought it went bad, but its ok.

    Nice to see you got an overclock going without an hassles!

    As for the AHCI thing, after you set AHCI (Or anytime you change that setting really), reboot back to the BIOS, and then go into the Advanced BIOS page, and then into the top setting "Hard Disk Boot Priority" and make sure your OS drive is at the top of that list, if it's not move it to the top Randomly it may work at any setting, depending on the number of drives connected at the time, so IDE/RAID working for you just happen to be lucky that your OS disk was at the top and not another HDD or USB, ect.

    Ok got the AHCI working, i have to say this chip and board overclock like a dream, no problems at all. I need to run some prime 95, but it passes super pi 32m no problems for now. I want to know about the memory straps, right now im on 2.00 1:1, which strap gives the best performance ?. Im unable to go up to other straps cause it will put my memory speed to high. I want to get some ddr2 8000 cl4, then i run high speed memory. Thanks very much for your help.

    Nice to hear things have been going smoothly for you!!

    Best straps are B and D really, but A and C will allow lower tRD (If your BIOS has this). But if you are under 400 FSB stick to B or A/C if you can run them, D is only helpful if above 400 FSB and only needed if you can't run B when above 400 FSB

    Of course, it all depends on if your CPU can run the other straps too, and what FSB you are using

    Here's the general setup for straps

    Easiest overclock i have ever done, thanks again. My new question is will this chipset run ddr2 1200 mgz ? , thinking about buying some gskill ddr2 4gb 1200 mgz. This board and processor are a vast improvement from my pentium 4 board.

    This is the ram im thinking of http://www.ebay.com/itm/140719609340...84.m1438.l2649

    Nice to hear! Ya, all boards up to P35 are super easy to overclock!

    I'm not sure if that chipset can run 1200? You can try with your current memory and see, just set very loose timings and see if you can find a FSB and memory strap combination that it will work on. You may need high Vtt and Vdimm to test, but set memory timings 666-20 or 777-24 and that should help you be able to find out if the chipset can do it, the memory should be able to with those loose timings no matter what kit it is really.

    Thanks i will try that. I have a new problem, my bios wont hold a overclock. Dont matter what i set in the bios, fsb, memory speed etc, the bios just sets my fsb at 266, my processor at 2.1 mgz, and my ram at 266 mgz, what is going one. I have tried to change the fsb, and memory speed, and save to cmos and then run it, but it just goes right back to above settings ????????????????????/
