I just have one question about "spread spectrum" settings. You say to disable it or it will cause instability.
I am using a craptastic board (ECS RS485M-M) with a 3800+ X2 with some DDR2-800 RAM. The highest FSB I can achieve is 230MHz, that is with the spread spectrum set to +/-5%. If I disable it my system won't POST with an overclock.
Is my situation normal or is it just the board causing me problems?
