Right now I have this processor overclocked to read as a 2800+, but it is right on the edge of a 3000+, the multiplier is set at 166x12.5. Everytime I tweak above the 2800+ setting it becomes very unstable. Does anyone know at what voltage I should have the processor set at. btw, I have 768MB PC2100 DDR overclocked to PC2700 set at 6-3-3-2.5

Any help would be awesome. I am probably just missing a step in the process, so any little thing you can think of could very well help.

Thanks!

What is your current voltage? ( stock i assume -> 1/65v )

Bump it to 1.7 then give it some more.. If still unstable go for 1.75, keep it under 1.8v by all means.

Bump your Vdimm (2.8v) for some extra stability.

Keep an eye on temps.

Use Prime 95 for stability.

:D
