I'm having problem hitting mine to 2.4GHz. It can boot into windows but would just locks up.

NF7-S rev 2.
2500+ (unlocked)
Corsair PC3200 XMS v1.1 2x256 dual channel
AX7 + H1A
Antec 430W PS

Right now I have it running at 1.825, 2.8, 1.7, 1.5 and ram timing at 11-2-2-2.5. 5/5 divider. BIOS is 20.

Temp varies around 40C full load (totally dependent on ambient temp).

At this setting it can fold no problem.

I've tried running it at 12*200 at 1.875, 2.8V, 11-3-3-2.5 but it still locked up on me.

Tried 11*215 at 1.8, 2.8, 11-3-3-2 and I think it locked up on me as well.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Looking around the forum I see that XMS v1.1 doesn't go very high so I think my bottleneck is the ram. The guy I bought the CPU from got it up to 10.5*240 at 1.9V using the same board, so the CPU and mobo have the potential.

I'm not very good with ram settings so helps needed. :eek:
