i was able to get my processor up to 10.5 x 159(locked) with the vcore set at 1.85v in bios. My temp is 35c idle and 40c load. I can boot to windows at a higher fsb, but 3dmark closes. And this is without any pci cards. Can someone give me any suggestions on how to possibly get my fsb higher?

Maybe try turning the memory timings down a little.

Well if i lower the timings then that will lower my overall performance. Is there another way with the same timings? Also how do i know if my dimm voltage is at default? The jumpers are vertical. I was wondering how 1,2,3 where labeled. I assume jp1 is the left one and jp2 is the right. Right now i have the jumper on the top 2 of jp1 and the other on bottom 2 of jp2. Is that the default voltage?

Have you gone to 166FSB? If not then maybe your pci/agp devices are out of spec. I think your board has the 5th divider and it will kick in (I think, if not you have to set it) when you set the fsb to 166. Maybe going straight to 166 would be a good way to check because inching your way up between 155-165 might cause some problems for you devices due to their high bus speeds.
