Iv got it up to 200fsb but when i run prime95 it errors in like 3 or 4 min. Im just wondering what i can do to make it a bit more stable. Also i think my cpu is locked but maybe i did somthing wrong when i tried to change the multiplier. And im very very newb at oc'ing.

Read your mobo manual, and maybe something like this http://www.ocforums.com/vb/vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=207088 before messing with settings.

If you can only post default 2500+ multi of 11, your chip is locked.

You need to increase Vdimm voltage and Vcore voltage. Wnen you do your temperatures go up so that's why you need good cooling for major overclocks. Also, Power Supply brand (not simply watts) is what gets you up there. Good luck.

Ack well I tried those exact settings and no boot. Tried to tweak it around and had to raise core to 1.75 to get it to boot, then wouldn't go into windows. Now I had to turn the speed throt, and spread spec back on so it would boot into windows, not to mention the ram I have crappy as it is "geil 3200" doesn't like 11-2-2-2 at all. 0.o so i am running at 2.2 right now 200x11 but get an error in prime95 in no time flat. 0.o seems im very unlucky =P
