    Nice theme dude...I got to 2.5 before my memory decided that it didn't like to be overclocked :p. Lemme know how high your overclock is. Should be plenty high, you have an x12 multiplier.

    Even if you have bad memory, you can use dividers. All depends on stepping and what-not, can't really tell you off the bat, each is different. All you can do is try out yourself.

    What I do when overclocking:
    1) Lower CPU multi to 4x, and see how high HTT can go.
    2) Put (large) divider between memory to see how high CPU can go.
    3) Lower CPU multi to 4x and overclock from there to see how high memory can go.
    4) Find best combination between high HTT, high CPU clock, high memory clock w/ decent timings.

    True, but I don't exactly have a CPU bottleneck that necessitates an overclock :).

    If my new DFI board still doesn't solve my comp's problems, then I might RMA my 3200+ and the tech guy at AMD said that I would get a 3500+ or higher processor, hope fully a 3700+ San Diego.
