    Hello,

    Intel 2.4b
    KINGSTON HyperX 512MB DDR333 (PC2700)
    Thermaltake VOLCANO 7+.

    Thanks all!

    well, for intel, u can try to jack up the FSB a bit at a time. Since u hvae pc2700, u will have a limited amount of FSB to boost up

    try to jack up the FSB 2mhz at a time, then, when it frezzes at POST, restart the Cmos, and lower the fsb by 1 until is stable. If u want to overclock more, u can rise the vcore of the CPU. But dont rise it too much, or u will burn ur CPU.

    With a stock 133FSB CPU, running 166mhz RAM (PC2700) isn't that bad actually. You already have some headroom, put your ratio at 1:1 and put your CPU up to 166 for a start. Lock AGP/PCI to 66/33.

    This will get you 2988mhz and it shouldn't require any more voltage, mine does that on 1.55v.

    What kind of cooling do you have?
