ok will lower ram timings, about the ram voltage i dont know what to set it to, at the moment its set to auto. i dont think i can change my cpu voltage as the option is blacked out and it skips past it when i go to highlight it (configure system frequency/voltage) is this the right option?
If u do things right.... People won't be sure you've done anything at all......
Vcore can be only increased by 0.1V above the nominal value – this may be enough just for ordinary (non-extreme) overclocking as Pentium 4 processors are not very sensitive to the voltage they receive
Thanks to the SiS655FX chipset, the frequencies of the AGP and PCI buses are locked at their normal values, 66/33MHz.
Our overclocking attempts with the ASUS P4S800D were a bit of a disappointment. The Pentium 4 2.4C processor that we used with this mainboard can speed up to 3.6GHz at 300MHz FSB, but we couldn’t repeat this result on the ASUS mainboard even reducing the memory clock rate to the minimum. It’s hard to tell certainly what was the reason, but the mainboard would lose stability at 255MHz FSB. Moreover, from 240MHz FSB on, you have to use specific memory modules as the system wouldn’t start up with some modules, irrespective of the FSB/MEM divisor, timings and the rated frequency of the modules.
So ASUS P4S800D mainboard can only be used for moderate overclocking. The basic disadvantage of this mainboard is its limited abilities in controlling the Vcore and low stability at the FSB frequency over 240-250MHz
going to go try it see if the 0.1 helps

Your motherboard sux because VIA and Asus have an agreement to make it suck, SiS being VIA's main competitor. You'll notice that chipset issues aren't such a big deal, but the limitted vCore was purposely implemented to hold you back.
