    Alright, I have a 2.4 ghz 800 fsb...I know these baby's can go to 3.0 ghz. I have a spark 7 and my cpu sits at mid 30's. My problem is I cant get it stable it past 2.7 ghz (225 clock). I have OC Systems 512 Ddr 3200, Should I invest in better ram? One more question I have a Gigabyte GA-8Ik1100 my bios does not have an option for Cpu:mem ratio or am i just over looking it?? Please help....Im one of those ppl that try to learn every thing by themselfs but this is KILLING ME!

    My gigabyte board also doesnt have the FSB:Mem ratio so i think its just gigabyte's decision to not include it. Did you ever think that you just got a bad chip for OCing?

    Actually now that i think about it, my gigabyte doesnt OC well either. Im not sure, it may just be the gigabyte boards? This is my first (and ATM my last) gigabyte board so im not sure.

    Your RAM seems fine. PC3200 should give ya a nice kick, but it is a more generic brand, which always seem to not like OCed processors.

    One thing i can suggest, since your RAM is 200MHz, try keeping your processor at 200MHz as well, and just OCing the multiplier. If that doesnt work, youll have to wait around for someone with more knowledge then me:p

    Yes Gigabyte mobo's arn't really hardcore overclockers items which is why I use them for reliable stock PC's.

    Nope PC3500 would be a better choice with that setup (PC3700 if ya can stretch that far).

    This is an Intel P4 so the multiplier is 100% locked.
