Ok got my new ram today(ddr 400 yipee!) and so far I been able to hit 170 FSB with a breeze. Now I was hoping to get higher but I was wondering if its ok to go with a 10.5 mult or should i lower the mult to like 9 or 8 then bump of the fsb or visa versa. Much help would be appreciated :D

Drop the multiplier. This allows you to separate problems arising due to the cpu and those from the memory-fsb. After you get the memory, fsb and Vdimm set then you can increase the multiplier and adjust the Vcore as needed. :cool:
