Default Make my OC better

DFI Lanparty UT NF4 Ultra-D
AMD Athlon 3200+ OCed to 351x7=2457
2x PC3200 512MB Corsair Value Ram OCed to 223Mhz
ASUS Geforce 6600GT
200GB seagate Barracuda SATA
120GB Maxtor Diamond Max 9 PATA
Magic IO 4x DVD Burner
Aspire 500W Blue PSU
NZXT Nemesis Elite (Black)

Its stable but also at its max. The cpu wont budge from just under 2.5Ghz. the Voltage is already 1.66V and is getting into the 50C's with it's stock cooler.

The ram as you can see is using a divider since its max OC is to 230.

What should I do to increase this OC? Get a better CPU cooler, if so which? Or get better ram, if so which?

Thanks

If your serious about O/C then you should go water cooling.

It is a little heavy, but I doubt it'll damage the CPU or the motherboard.

It was recromended by DarkBlade and he knows a lot about CPU's so i doupt it would crush it or damage it.

nothing touches that, not even liquid cooling for the most part!

Found out it does not fit my motherboard. the 7000 one does but not the bigger 7700.

Now what about this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835109119
?

If so what would be a good fan for it? (something fairly quiet but also a good amount of airflow)

THE Thermalright XP-120 IS OUT OF THE QUESTION! ITS HUGE!!!!

Is that fan mounted to the cooler? Cause if it is, then you have a problem with your mounting of that, unless you are doing some heavy OCing there is no way you should be getting those temps.

Any more opionions?
