Heres the deal.. if I O\C my system beyond 840 mhz Sisoft sandra reports significant reductions in memory scores(I get like 412-495 repectively @ 840mhz) I gotta believe I can do better than 840mhz AND increase these scores
System \ setup
asus cusl2-c Mobo 1003 bios
P-3 800 eb cpu 133mhz coppermine
512 MB CAS-2 ram set to 2-2-2 5t 7t
geforce 2 pro 32 mb 5.5 ns ram
soundblaster live
usr 56k modem
ibm dtla 7200rpm 30 gb ata 100 HDD
cd reader and a cd writer
a truck load of fans etc
vcore usually 1.7v
thanx for any insight \ suggestions

Check in the bios under chipset options. If your memory is set to SPD. When you overclock the motherboard reads the SPD chip on the memory,and then sets the memory at a lower setting. Cas 3 instead of Cas 2.
