Default Couple of Questions with my Overclock?

Ok so im trying to hit 2.5ghz on my new motherbaord with my 3800+ x2 but im having some trouble. My first question is it better to have a Hyper Transport running really low or slightly over 1000? The way it is now my cpu is running at 2.4 and the HT is running at 1008, with a x4. If I want to overclock my cpu anymore id have to push that past that or lower it around 770 or something.

3800+ x2 @2.0Ghz
8800GTS 320mb @ 600/1800
2gb Corsair XMS2 DDR2 800
Abit KN9 Sli Motherboard
Rosewill 550 Watt PSU

It shouldn't be a problem if it's a little over 1000. But it's generally a good idea to keep it below, because it really doesn't bottleneck anything. So you might as well set it down since it's just acting as a potential hindrance to the overclock.

ASUS A8N32 SLI-Deluxe, AMD Athlon X2 3800+ @ 2.8GHz, eVGA 8800GTS 320MB, 2GB Corsair XMS DDR400, 160GB WD HDD + 320GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.10, AC Freezer 64 Pro, 700W OCZ GameXStream, NZXT Zero :D

I think I've decided to leave... maybe I'll come back sometime.

Look at what these people did with their X2 3800+. It's a 2.5GHz OC that's stable.

*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?
