Set your memory speed to DDR333 this effectively runs a divider so your memory will not be over stressed, also lower your HTT multiplier to 2 or 3, make sure your agp or pci-e speed is locked and then have a go.

ok,thanks monkeyman,will give it a try,but how is droppin my ram to 333 gonna give me a boost?.

Allows you to run the HTT (FSB for old school overclockers) higher.

sometimes ram will hold an overclock back. running a divider will net no loss in performance, asumming you can get the ram back up to speed, either by just upping the FSB, or by upping the FSB AND lowering your multiplier.

Becasue the memory controller for A64's resides on the cpu die itself, it is already running a divider...ram speed is derived from a divider in the first place, dependant on the cpu which divider is stock.
