Not sure if I spelt it right, but what actually is bandwith on memory?

How did I get better bandwith, what options do I change?

I recently got some Hynix chips that are used in Corsair PC4000.
But I still can't get my overclock any higher.

It's annoying, I've got an unlocked barton, should go more than 2.3ghz at 1.8v.

I'd say drop your multipier back down to 11. make sure you have your FSB/DRAM ratio set 1:1 and then push up your FSB slowly and see how far it can take you. I just helped a guy take his 2500 barton w/ PC2700 Hynix to 200x11. And he just stpped cause he was content. See how you with FSB overclocking.

The chips I have are designed with high frequency in mind rather than tight timings, still does 11-3-3-2.5 @ 200 though. I got them in preperation for A64 upgrade.

It is stable at 210x11 @ 1.8v..

That sucks, vcore is way to high. I don't want to burn it out.
