    didn't see this second part sorry... well for me i have NB at 2700 and HT i don't remember. your board may not be able to take NB that far though.

    He asked what voltages you needed to use to get them settings stable, i wouldnt mind knowin either:)

    also in case you havet seen a store of gr8 knowledg:D

    If you start getting BSOD's, back off the NB a bit, to maybe like 2200, before you up the vcore.

    Just wanting to mention: if you have a bum IMC & won't go over 2.4Ghz NB frequency, try tightening ram timings. It will give a placebo effect in relation to core speed. Remember everything above 3.8Ghz cores & 2.6Ghz NB is a bonus. Also in my use from a 555 black @ x4+M5A97+Ridgebacks 1600 cl6, that setup performed the best @ 1800 cl7 dram 2.6Ghz NB & 3.6Ghz cpu cores with temps and voltages in mind.

    Most low to mid range boards will allow you to raise the HTT to 220, My Basic ECS board does that, so it should be possible with your board. When you raise ur HTT the NB clock is also raised. More HTT might create problems with Ram stability. So try 220 with CPU multi @ 17, that will give you overall performance boost.

    My Phenom II X2 555 unlocked to X4 does 4.0 Ghz and 1.4 volts just by raising cpu multi, but doesn't like raising NB too at the same time. My best gaming experience is at 220 * 17. This gives me NB freq @ 2200 Mhz.

    Hope it makes sense.
