ok, now for the questions.. i thought my cpu would be stable at 410 bus 11.5 mutiplier but it rebooted the pc half way through 3dmark. i was running the voltages 1.80 cpu and 2.80 dimm. should i try to raise the voltage on the cpu to 1.85 or should i try changing the chipset voltage? problem with chipset voltage is that it dont let me know what its allready runnin at. i kinda want this clock speed, just tryin to figure out how to get it a lil more stable.. any help would be nice. thanx....

3000+ aren't the best of overclockers...

However, you can give 1.85V a shot but chances are the CPU just doesn't have it in it... Back is down.

2.8V is a nice spot for the Vdimm...

What are your current temps?

But he didn't, so we are trying to help with his current problem...

What is your current chipset voltage? 1.6v? You can go for 1.7v, but chances are it will give minimal gains if any..

my voltages are 1.80 vcore 2.80 dimm chipset set at auto , agp at auto. my temps using winbond are 51 idle and 55-56 after playin tw2004 for 4 hours as a good test. im basicly tryin to get 2.4 ghz out of this chip stable.. i know i can,, just tryin to be safe. right now its at 210fsb x 11 multi. i was runin it at 11.5 multi to get 2.4ghz but crashed halfway through 3d mark2001. i cant remember if i tried 1.85vcore or not . and i heard you can go to 1.90, but thats the limit.
maybe the chipset voltage up .50 will help? i just dont no what the chipset voltage runs at stock on nforce2 ultra.
my chipset stays real cool 37c all the time considering passive cooling. my previous kt400a board chipset ran at 49c allways. which one is the chipset voltage in winbond hardware doctor by the way? also, would it posibly be more stable at a higher fsb/lower multiplier? 220x11 maybe?

yea mine does too,,, try raising the fsb to 210 or 220 though then youll have to.. you must have the 333fsb model,
i have the 400 fsb stock model. i have one of the most overclockable mobo's made (lanparty nf2 ultra) it got reviews as the best nf2 ultra mobo tested to date by many sites, and now owning it i see why.. i love this board, and its beautiful with a black cc light kit.im just trying to be carefull oc'ing it at first,, takin it slow.

Yup, 333fsb chip. But no problems raising the fsb to 210, while lowering the mulltiplier, at stock voltages. Wanna swap chips? But for some reason the bios reports the fsb and memory running at 14Mhz - it's not, but it was freaky to see.
