this is my set up:
P5N32-SLI premium (motherboard)
Intel core 2 duo
DDR2 PC2-6400 1GBx2 dual channel. says 1.9-2.0v? don't know if that'll help at all.
500watt power supply.

Current settings:
FSB at 1500
multiplier 7x
memory ratio: sync mode
n/b strap cpu as: psb 1066
[email protected] data rate at 750. (came stock at 800 but due to ratio problems i can't figure out how to get it higher and still work i've tried increasing voltages but it doesn't help)
PCIe: all three set to 100mhs
SPP<-> MCP REF Clock: auto

i ran memtest95 for 45 minuets with everything everything passing although the cpu temperature was up at around 80-85C the whole time which probly isn't the best i should probly get a better cooling system right? can anyone help get it up higher? get the RAM to run at 800mghz instead or just any suggestions?

I recommend you benchmark before and after overclocking, your CPU may actually be performing slower due to throttling, those temperatures will eventually kill your CPU if you leave it like that.

asside from that, what CPU model do you have this will allow us to get a better idea of the overclocking you can handle.

since you are overclocking using the bus speeds, as long as your memory is not being pushed too far you can keep pushing the clock speeds until you cant get past an hour of prime 95, after that back the speed down by about 5MHz, then do a prime 95 test for at least 8 hour

(do this after getting a better heatsink or you will kill your CPU)

It's a model: F
Family: 6
Revision: B2
(don't know if the other two will help)

So until i can get a better cooling system i should keep it at a slower rate then? I'll do that and see if i can get a better one.

You posted that your FSB [front side bus] is 1.5gig. The normal setting for that cpu is 266mzh which yields a 1066 bus cpu. The fsb is quad pumped or X4. If you really have the fsb set @1.5gig [which I doubt the board will go that high] you need to lower it.

Stock I think your multi is 9 with a fsb of 266 which yields 2.4gig cpu.

oh ya that was a mistype haha sorry about that yes it came stock at 1066 and i upped it to 1500. the multiplier is only seven it won't go any higher.
