Hi guys...first I like to say I like this forum alot and thanks so much. Well, this is my first time getting this kind of fsb so Im pretty excited. I dont' know much about OC, right now my ram timming is 9-3-3-3, fsb = 230, mult = 10 at 2.3ghz. I would like to try to go faster but I think I will get a better hs before this. What I like to ask now is that if I want to go faster, what do you guys think I should change first?? The Mult or the fsb? Any tips on the ram timming if Im going faster?? Thanks all. Im running a 3000+ unlock and a shuttle A35N-U with kingston ch5 pc3500 hyperx.

i would tighten the ram timings to 2.5,3,3,8 or 11 up the ram voltage if needed and then see if u can hit higher FSB at the end remember to run Prime95 for 12hours min

With CH5 and nForce2's, the best timing choice in my experience was 11-3-3-2. You're doing great so far. I don't think your memory will go much further than 230MHz, but you could try dropping to a 9x multi and seeing if it can. Then, once you've got a ram limit established, begin to increase the multiplier.
