    well ive gotten my processor up from 2.4 to 2.86 and i think its about as stable as a brick so far, but im pretty power hungry and i was wondering if i could get it any higher. is that typically as high as 2.4's go or what? ive got plenty of fans and what not, and my voltage doesnt help at all, since stock votalge is 1.52, and the highest i can set it at is 1.6, and i dunno what 8/100's of a volt will do. let me know, guys

    i dont have any experience with the p4 but you could just keep on upping the speed until it becomes unstable or until the temperatures are becoming too high on AMD systems try to stay below 50C under load. not sure bout p4 but i think its about the same

    yeah thats been my method so far, but when it gets to like 2.88 it gets unstable and freezes in 3dmark2001se. ive even slowed my memory down. my memory is rated at 400mhz and it freaks out at like 408mhz like a little :kay:

    it sounds like your memory is holding you back so try relaxing the memory timings and/or upping the voltage to the memory
    alternatively try selecting a memory divider to keep your memory running within spec

    yeah thats what i thought. if i change one memory timing do i have to change them all? cause my computer beeps non stop wheni try to change the cas from 2.5 to 3, and it wont boot. i also dont get how to change the memory divider, and im not sure if my bios will let me do that in the 1st place

    Did you lock your AGP/PCI to 66/33?

    That would be your problem then. You are overclocking your PCI bus and hard drive corruption can result along with system crashes.

    I am not positive that your SiS chipset can do that though. You will have to look.

    It's decent, but for a 2.4c, 3.0ghz is almost guaranteed to anyone with a Springdale / Canterwood chipset and the right RAM, and people have made it all the way to 3.6ghz on air (300fsb). The only thing stopping you is that AGP/PCI lock.
