    Hi there,

    I am pretty new to this place too.

    I am not too sure about your problem but I have noticed when trawling through the forum that many users with your chip hit the wall at 250fsb, with all but a few geting over 3.25. I think it may be inherant to the 2.6 chip.

    As I said I don't know personally but I think that is the general feeling.

    well it is also possible that it's your ram not likeing the 5:4... ram seems to be streesed more when using 5:4 ,3:2(this is from other peoples testing).... since i havent seen too many people with the 2.6c do you know what steping you have? what the Sspec on the chip? if you got one of the new stepping C's i would think you wall would be around the 3.6-3.8ghz range as my 3.0c is not stable with any higher voltage @ 3.8 but is fine at 3.75 with 1.675volts(bios) but lives at 3.6 not much a diffence besides temps are lower....

    yeah i have a wall on my 3.0C about 247. I am going to have a 2.4 chip coming soon that has gone up to 283, I am going to pop it in and try. Then maybe we will have more evidence that this barrier is chip or mb related.

    but the 2.4c could be one of the lucky ones....remember they did Bin the 2.4c from what i remember people saying a while back.... i was mainly refering the the new stepping cpu's D1's that if no matter what Multi its at the wall may be around what i said above... even though yes a higher speed cpu using the same voltage will more then likely overclock higher but by how much i would like to know.... i dont have to money to find that out... it would be interesting to me to find out.... Like go to newegg and buy a 2.4c and then buy a 3.0c both new and not knowing what it maybe.... to see where they both end up....

    Well, 250 FSB is fairly typical with the 2.6C. Not familiar with that type of RAM, but maybe raise the RAS to CAS timing another notch. The IC7 series can be a little finicky with RAM.
