    Hi!

    VCORE voltage (P4 2.0 Northwood) is at 1.575V (everest CPUID 1.580-1.680), CPU clock at 2760MHz, SDRAM DDR276 timings (2.5-3-3-6), DRAM ratio 1:1. If I set VCORE to 1.575V and FSB on 140 it hangs. I have Asus PS48X-X so I have only 4 choices at memory frequency (auto, 103, 138, 172, 207). CPU T is 33 on idle, and 41 stressed (akasa evo120). Memtest passed without errors.

    What shall I do to make it faster and more stable?

    Thanks!

    Ditto, that's a good overclock - the first thing to consider after all you've tried is better cooling. Do you think there some other component (like ram) is holding you back? You can test ram by relaxing the ram timings, or increasing ram voltage.

    Thanks to all of you!

    Better cooling in general (cause I know cooling overall is bad) or better than akasa?
    Relaxing meaning like 3-3-3-7 and voltage like 2.6?

    Thanks again, enjoy!
