Recently purchased some OCZpc3500 (i know wot your thinking!!) and have managed to get up to 200fsb 2.0-2-2-2-5, windows runs fine but on boot up i get wierd blocks of color and odd chaeacters appearing in obscure places. I also get hang ups in 3dmark and 3d games such as unreal2003. All desktop and web functions are fine, which leads me to think its the vga card, should my gainward ti4200 be able to cope with high fsb's like this or am i doing something drastically wrong?

it sounds like you haver it oc'd so high that windows cant handle it and your data is getting scrambled. m$ is going to have to come out with a new os soon because of the processors and ram getting so fast at stock speeds it cant handle it.
weeeee! a new crappy os from m$, just what we all need. :beer:

doesn't sound like the operating system to me. you don't have a 1/6 divisor so your agp is definately out of spec. that would be my guess. could also be caused by your hard drive, thats out there too. is windows running of your western digital. my wd causes all sorts of problems at anything above 37.67 mhz. my guess though would be the agp.

Right now for vga stability my fsb is @ 190 and Sisoft says my agp slot is @ 4 x 96 = 384mhz.
