i just overclocked(2.4b to 2.66) on my system for the first time,,,everything is default except fsb(148) and mem ratio(1:1). and pci is set to 33/66. My idle temps are 33c for cpu and 32c for mb. My sandra test for memory bandwidth are Memory Bus Speed(2x148MHz)296mhz data rate and Maximum bandwidth memory is 2368mb. Does everything sound alright,,this is my first o/c on this type of set up. Are there any other settings i should adjust?

Flicking the 6th dipswitch located near cpu turns the 3:4 setting on meaning more sandra score :cool: or if ur RAM can't keep up the system might not boot:eek:

Your sandra score looks good for the overclock you have.

Here is mine 2.26B on P4B533 at 1.65V

hmmm, your mem bandwidth is considerably more. Is that just from the 3:4 mem setting? I would like to get the most out of my memory.

You've got nice fast memory, so upping your CPU/mem ratio is always the way to go. But you've also got a nice board there as well, be patient with a lower ratio, and your upped fsb will eventually juice your bandwidth nicely

I think everything is still pretty smooth ,,havent noticed any problems. The temp on my cpu has certainly changed though! I am around 32c idle and when folding its around 43c and when heavy gaming i notice a jump to around 49c. Are these safe temps in your opinion? Like i said before,,everything is still stock(hardware and bios)except for fsb changes. Will core voltage adjustment ease the temps down a bit or is that futile.

I think the throttling kicks in ~60 degrees but I would consider 55degrees to be the safest bet without comprimising stability.

More the volts higher the temps but the increased volts also helps in maintaining the stability plus higher overclock upto an extent.

With stock HSF never exceed 1.65V :)
