    Hey i'm looking for some tips on what I can do to get my pc running with the best stable overclock. I've read a bunch of guides and I understand the basics of it but i'd like some second opinions on what I can change or add...etc..

    I've already upped the FSB from 200mhz to 220 and it's stable thus far...but I wouldnt mind doing a little more but i'd rather not risk changing anything else without knowing for sure what to do..

    Here's some screen from CPUZ...hopefully they give some insight.

    Thanks!

    What are your specs?

    How do you know the oc is stable? Did you run prime95?

    Anything else you need?

    I didn't run prime 95 but I did run another prog to load test and played BF2 for a few hours with no probs...

    Just to compare i got my 3000+ venice up to 2.4ghz on stock volts and shitty ram.

    Just drop the HT multiplier down to 3x and keep bumping the FSB up until its no longer stable.

    After you find the max of the chip/mobo readjust the HT multi to make sure that FSB X HT Multi < 1000.

    EDIT: I also used the stock HSF so it should be okay, altho it did run a bit hot. 55 load. I had to get a new heatsink.
