Been doing some research on some forums and have found that some people with the kt333 dragon ultra have had better luck OC'ing by disabling the usb2 in the bios. ( it seems the usb2 is sensitive to fsb change)I have tried it and was able to go a max of 18mhz higher before becoming unstable.(fsb138mhz before/156mhz after) Not sure if this was common knowledge or not since I have not read anything in here about it, so I though I would pass this along. :burn:

I have the kt400 and my usb2.0 starts acting a little flakey at anything over 166fsb. The regular usb still worked fine was just getting all kinds of error when using my usb2.0 HD.
