8RDA+, XP2400+, OC results...with similar system, whats your results?

I have this combo, with a Radeon 9500pro, and have been playing around with the Max OC I can get, and wanted to know what others have been able to get, and with what settings.

So without further ado, here is what I was able to do...

CPU set to Aggressive in the Bios, and Memory (Corsair PC3500XMS) set at 5,2,2,2 with 2.63v.

12 x 200 @1.80v = 2400Mhz
System Temp = 29c
CPU Temp = 40c idle / 42c load

and...

CPU set to Optimal in the Bios, and Memory set to 6,2,2,2 with 2.77v.

12.5 x 200 @1.95v = 2500Mhz
System Temp = 30c
CPU Temp = 46c idle / 50c load

Both are perfectly stable (benches, games, etc).

I have had problems with 3D games (along with 3DMark2k1se) when I have the bus over 200Mhz FSB. Basically the video locks up. After further research, It appears that my Video card is overheating, so I have ordered Ramsinks, and and working on taking off the Shim, and reapplying the HS/Fan with AS3.

Hopefully, this will fix the 3D problem, so I can go to a higher bus speed.

So tell me, what have you gotten with similar setups????

P.S.

I am watercooling my CPU, and have a Fan on the NB, and heatsinks on the SB and Mosfets (near the ATX power plug) to reduce heat from these components.

and here is a Sandra Benchmark I took of the system so far...
Dhrystone 9341 MIPS
Whetstone 3713 MFLOPS

and I have gotten 13,988 in 3DMark2k1se.

The lockups or blank screens could be lack of Vdimm, video card overheating (as you said), or if you already have sufficient cooling for north bridge, then lack of Vdd.

I have just had 2442Mhz @ 2.05v while running 3dmark. The video card crashed when I put it back to the best overclock, so I didn't bother getting a score since I could see that 3Dmark is weighted more heavily on my gfx o/c in my system at these speeds.
