All you OC experts

as you can see from my sig had my cpu at 10.5x210. now I have it running for a few hours at 11x210 (2320 mhz) at 1.9v with temps at 35c idle , 40c load stable (ran prime95 for a few hours). tested my ddr with memtest for a while and stable at 210 at 4-2-2-2. To go higher should I lower my fsb and raise my multpy or just lower my ddr setting and raise my fsb and/or change aggressive setting to optimal in bios?. also is it safe to raise my volts more?. only plan to have chip for yr max.

PS: removed nb hs and added as3. Also have side case door fan (120mm 129cfm 44dba) centered above my video card, cools nb,vc,sb.

What is your vdimm? I think 2.8v or so should be safe.
Your temps seem good, but I personally would get skittish raising the vcore much higher. What are you using to cool the CPU?

I'd try both... it would be a good way to find out what is the max of your CPU, and also for memory... then decide what will get your farther.

Most people with your CPU are topping off at around the 2400Mhz mark. Raising the multiplier may take you to the CPU limit. I would personally try to take the FSB as high as it will go by dropping the memory timings one at a time. The first thing I would change would be the 4 to a 5 or even a 6. Then I would see where it stabilizes. If you can get around 220, I think that may be as far as you can go without without either dropping the multiplier or changing your cooling setup.

ok, just tried 210x12 @ 2.0v. will boot into windows but will fail prime95. idle is now 38c. load was 43c . my swifty has a delta@ 68cfm. would a tornado @ 80cfm make any diff. I think I can get more out of this chip by rasing vlt, but worried about my temps. these temps are not the on cpu sensor, right?
