Thats the LDT ratio.

That isnt a bad overclock. Do you really need that much voltage though? Try lower and see if its still stable. You shouldn't need 1.5v for a 400mhz overclock, unless its a crappy one like my old 3700+.

Change your LDT ratio to 3x. The drop the multi to 8 and see how high the HTT will go on 1.55V. That will tell you if you are HTT limited or not. And put your RAM on a 1:2 divider.

Well the HTT of your motherboard I doubt will be the problem with overclocking. I'm not sure but I think the limit of that motherboard is usually around 300mhz. I doubt you will be getting your processor to 3ghz so I wouldn't worry about the HTT too much.

ya thanks i got my htt to 260 at 1.485v now, and i think i can hit higher. so what do i do after i finish finding out my max? how would i go about to make my system rock hard?

BTW thanks alot for the help.

Edit: it's at 275mhz and it looks like it can still go higher. is this normal?
