    i have tried my ht at 4, 3, 2 and even 1 and it still wont go above 2600, i would happily set my ht to 3 if i could get 2700 or 2800 clock speed but it just wont work like i say even with 1ht.

    I understand that, but setting it to 5 is bad when overclocking, even the slightest overclock. Leave it at 4. You are sure to get instability at any HTT speed over 200 with the HT set to 5.

    fuk it, im gona sell my 3500+ and buy a 3800+ dual core, wont cost much to upgrade for the performance gain.

    Actualy there is a proformance loss there, you're going from a 2.2GHz single core to a 2GHz dual core. In single threaded applications(like most games) you will notice a decrease in proformance, but in multi threaded apps (or multipul applications) you will see increases.

    You wont get any farther in your overclocking either(assuming your problem lies in your motherboard).

    hmmm good point, but iv decided to go for the 4200+ witch is 2.2ghz so logically that should give me the same performance in singal threaded apps.(as the 3500+), plus a large increase in multi threaded apps.

    so has anyone overclocked a 4200+ before? ill estimate that it will get about 2.6ghz, but lets see.

    I have not done it myself, but many reviewers had had no problems getting it that high. There is a chance you could get "bad" one like I did, but chances are you'll get at least 2.5.

    I seem to be suffering the same problem. No matter what I do I can't overclock over 230Mhz stable.

    I have Geil Ultra (2x512) DDR400 memory, so it shyould be fine to about 250Mhz from all reports.

    I have dropped htt to 4, and even tried 3, to no avail.

    My temps don't go above 40.

    I've played around with different power settings and memory settings and just can't find a winning combo to overclock past 230Mhz stable.

    My mainboard is an Epox 9NPA+ SLI mainboard and is well regarded for it's overclocking ability. It has been benchmarked and reviewed and can clock to over 350Mhz without any issues (providing the CPU and memory can support it).

    I think I have worked out why it is unstable, but am unsure how to fix it.

    Basically, when I go into the bios (PowerBIOS) and change the CPU frequency, it seems to also change the memory FSB?

    I set the CPU to 220, and when I booted into Windows and checked with CPUZ, my memory was at 220Mhz???

    From reading many overclocking guides, I'm supposed to be able to "lock" the memory to 200/166/133 etc, and then be able to increase the CPU independent of the memory to achieve high overclocks.

    Does anyone know what I need to only raise the CPU frequency (stop the memory mirroring and CPU) - using PowerBIOS???

    All help appreciated.

    Regards
