    Hello all. I'm looking to boost my performance with my machine and was wondering if it would be possible to get some recommendations on what I can adjust to get better performance. I'm not quite sure all the info you will need but I'm going to start by posting a few things and if someone would like to offer up some suggestions I can try I would be grateful. I'm using nTune for my current settings and adjustments.

    System Clocks:
    Reference clock: 267 mhz
    cpu multiplier: 9.0x
    cpu core frequency: 2,403mhz
    fsb frequency: 1,068 (qdr)mhz
    memory bus frequency: 801 (ddr2)mhz
    SPP reference clock (PCI-E): 2,500 mhz
    MCP reference clock (PCI-E): 2,500 mhz

    System voltages are:
    cpu 1.287v
    memory 1.850v
    fsb 1.200v
    HT nForce SPP <-> MCP - N/A
    nForce SPP 1.250v
    nForce MCP N/A
    Auxilary 1.500v

    I have the fan control on auto. I'm curious because the slider on the FSB seems to be dialed down real low. FSB is a big deal I guess and I think I might have mine turned way down by default. I dont think you need the memory timings but I can post them if indeed they are something you need. Hopefully I can get one of you pros to have a look at the numbers and point me in the right direction. I might have things set good right now and not know it. The main reason I wanted to post this was the description I had when I mouse over the FSB setting. "increase performance for gaming (only reason I built the machine)or lower to conserve power. The slider is almost down to the minimum at this point.

    At this point everything is as it always has been, stock. Almost any game I play wants to run at "low" levels. Guess I just dont understand what to look at when it comes to making sure I have this thing set up to game with.

    Thanks for the time.
