What kind of overclocking should I be able to accomplish with my OCZ PC3200 Platinum Limited Edition 2x512 setup at 2.85V (Max for my mobo)?

If it's really BH-6 then I would guess 210-220 FSB at a 1:1 ratio. That's keeping the 222 timings. 2.85v isn't much for BH-6. It really needs 3+ volts to really take off.

Yeah, BH-6 and BH-5 just love voltage. At 2.85 I would guess something like 220MHz @ 2-2-2-11. You shouldn't really run it at timings looser than that, as it gets a little sloppy with relaxed timings.

You really think I could hit 220? I didn't think I would be able to come close to that with 2.85V.

my mushkin 2x512 bh6 isn't spectacular, but i haven't modded my board to get more than 2.9v yet.

at 2.8v, it'll do 210 222 memtest stable
at 2.9v, it'll do 215 222 memtest stable.

this is on a nf7-s board.
