    now my problem is ive been going through these reviews and guides and they helped great for the most part but now im stuck.i got it up to 2.25.
    i tried to go up to 260 mhz but it just keeps going back to default 1.8gig.i really need someone to explain how i get off of my default 9x mult.any help would be much appreciated.

    What HT or LDT speed are you running it at? It will need to be set to 3 to get it over 250MHz. ANd You almost certainly will need to up the Vcore to get it higher too. List the exact settings you are using to overclock with. And that single stick of ram is really hurting your performance. Get another stick and you will see improvements. As for overclocking, it should be OK with the single stick.

    ok im new with all this overclocking.i dont know how to change the multi yet.thats why i asked the last my bios i went in advanced chipset and was able to lower the dram to 166 in the frequency and voltage i have a setting for cpu ratio but last time i messed with that my compuetr ran like has settings from x4 at 800 mhz all the way up to x20 at 4000 mhz.i cant find where i would just change it to is currently set as startup.cpu core is at 250 @ 2.25 gig.vcore i pushed it up to 1.7 something but its accually is running something like 1.68.and the vdimm is at 2.70.
