The clock generator for the 945GCT-xx should be either RTM866-485 or ICS9LPRS419DFLF, both of which are supported by the latest 2.x version of SetFSB.

Okay i Tried the first one got a error, the ics9lprs419dflp loaded the FBS (but didnt work) I tested a few others, tried just searching for my base FBS at 199.5 found a few but after changing to anything it start lagging and sooner or later i get the blue screen. heres a pic see if it helps

The best option for overclocking that CPU/mobo combo is going to be a BSEL pad-mod which will increase the FSB from 200 to 266. I seem to recall the 2160 I played with not needing a voltage bump at that speed.
There are a few guides on the forum, just search BSEL.Q9650, Rampage Formula X48, 4x1GB G.Skill PC2-6400 (D9GMH), HD 6950 2GB, 2x 64GB SandForce 1222 SSD RAID 0, BFG LS1000, Gamer4670K, ASRock Z87 Extreme 4, 2x8GB Crucial PC3-1600, GTX 650, 240GB Intel 335 SSD, 1TB WD Black, Seasonic S12-650W, Lightroom4E6600, nvidia e-7150 i630, 2x2GB G.
