    Take the core to 1.75v.

    Increase the memory voltage to 2.7-2.75v and see if that helps but if not then dependin' on ya temps ya could go as high as 1.85v on the core.

    I don't know, what kind of temps are you getting with the fsb at 200?? Maybe try raising the voltage even more, unless you are getting over like 60 C cpu temps. Are you sure your PCI/AGP buses are locked?? It may just be that you need better cooling if you're using stock HSF, but then again, Im running stock as well, and Im very stable with my setup.

    well I upped the vcore to 1.80 and it ran stable as could be... I was very impressed... it ran 4 test in prime95 without an error and only 35'C load, but then I just let my comp sit while I was doing things around the house and all of a sudden I got a weird (very bad looking) white screen... after that Windows wouldnt load... then I couldnt get it to even start into the diagnostics! so hear I am thinking that I have burnt yet another cpu and/or mobo, but after starting it up over and over it decided to start up and here I am.... scared that I will burn it up if I attempt any more OC'ing. I think I have a curse.... what could be the prob? Im back running at 2500 again... Pout...

    not that you would rub it in or anything... lol. I still cqant understand it... the temp is fine... prime95 ran without errors for over 30mins at 35'C... grr... Im at a loss. I might just stick with the 1.8 (2500) speed. after all I do have 1GB of DDR 3200 (dual channel) and a radeon 9800xt. so a couple hundred mhz isnt that big of deal
