    help with barton 2500 oc

    ok i got my barton 2500 stable (14 hours prime then i stopped) at 200x11.5 at 1.7 volts with load of 48C. to do (2 hours prime then i stopped)200x12 requires 1.83 volts and load temp is 53C. prime for these was run in "small FFTs" setting which is supposed to be highest cpu strain.

    now a couple questions i have:

    first, is my temp now limiting me? it was a big voltage jump from 2.3 to 2.4ghz.

    second, how do i go about ocing my ram? i want highest possible fsb with my current timings of 2-2-2-11. review i read said they got 212fsb with same ram. i'd be happy with 209. i briefly tried 209x11 at same vcore as did 200x11.5 and couldn't stay stable in prime95 using blend. i upped first the chipset voltage (to 1.7) then the ram voltage (to 2.7) and then both together and it still would not stay stable. keep in mind that my ram default says 2.6 in bios but hw doc reads at 2.68.

    i guess i'm happy at 200x11.5 but i'd love the benefits of higher fsb.

    thanks for any help you can give me.

    Have you tried an 80 mm 5000 rpm fan? I think you need more air across that slk-900 than a 2900 rpm fan will do.

    Try to run at 210x11 instead this will put you at 2310. and if that doesn't work try 210x10.5.

    it's not a 2900rpm fan. it'll do 5400rpm if i want to go deaf. if heat is the limiting factor then i will stop and not go higher til i get my new swiftech with 92mm panaflo.

    210 will do better than 209?

    Well lets see higher FSB and the mulity is lower. This way you could hit a higher FSB and have your ram do what it should do.

    215 seems stable with 2.8vcore. at least it passed memtest86. funny though cause prime wasn't even stable at 209 at that voltage.
