sorry about that.
Ok to look at your specs there are TWO different versions of the amd 64 3000:
1) 3000+ 1,8GHZ - 1024KB cache L2
2) 3000+ 2,0GHZ - 512KB cache L2
which one do you have?
from your ststement I bet it is the 1.8 and you are already at the max for that chip. and you are trying to compare it to the 2.0 which will go a little higher than you are getting..and you can't figure why?
now you know.
Actually there is NO SET feature to overclocking. there are so many variables that can react/interact to cause different readings. The best thing is to just increase the values till it becomes unsteady and then back off a little till they are reliable/stable. Then let it be... anything else will cause you to be unstable and you will forever be posting for help.
