What should my values be set at. I know how to get in bios and change everything around. Could someone give me a list of what to set all my values at? That would really help, thanks! Im looking for a stable overclock.
Also... The video card... Right now it's set to the default 100mhz do I keep that setting and overclock it in windows with ATI Tool? Or would it be better to overclock in bios, and use ATI tool?
The platinum ram said 2-3-2-5 I think thats what it's rated for. I am really confused when I go into the memory settings in bios there are so many more options than just 4 number values. Could someone please take me step by step, option by option? Thanks guys!
It's a gaming rig =] PS: I might might might get a vapochill for x-mas, then we can do some serious overclocking, right now I just have the zalman all copper 120mm fan setup, it's real efficient for what it is (a fan) so just remember im only working with that right now. PEACEE!!!

You really should try to keep your menmory in sync with the fsb speed. If you loosen up the timing to 3 4 4 8 you should be able to run that memory at 1/1 with the fsb at 250 or 260 mhz. Bring your voltage on your cpu up to 1.45 or 1.50. Your voltage on your dram should be up to 2.75 or2.80. That x2 4400+ should overclock easily to 2.5 or 2.6 ghz. By running your multpliyer at 10 and your fsb at 250 or 260.
Heya...Which ocz plat did you get? There are two different versions. One is the 3200 version which is good up to 240-250fsb, and the hard to find plat stuff that is rated to 250fsb at 2 3 2...
Either way, with my ocz 3200, i was able to hit 250, but not terribly stable. 240 is a safer, easier clock, at 3 4 4 8 and the rest stock.
On your board...Meh, i can't remember off the top of my head...i was thinking the 2 3 2 5 rating was equivilent to 2 2 3 5 on that mobo, but i'm not absolutely sure. Ah here we go...
Here are the settings i have at 240 on the a8n-sli premium.
3 8 4 4 8 14 4 3 1T @ 240fsb (with 2 3 2 3200 ocz plat 2gb kit)(tested on a 3000+ and a x2 3800+)
currently i'm running 233fsb 1:1 3000+ 3 7 3 3 8 12 2 2 1T with the plats
@ 240 you can go as tight as 3 8 4 4 8 12 2 2 1T
You might even be able to squeeze a 3 out of one of the 4's depending (possibly even 2...i was able to post without issue and boot without issue at 250 and the same settings as the 240; it wasn't stable however).
Despite what people are saying, you very well may not be able to hit 240 or 250fsb with that cpu...However you could do better, it's been pretty random on who gets a good memory controller. Some people are getting crazy oc's, some aren't, even on the same ram. My 1gb tccd kit, is good to about 330fsb, and the cpu is good to 265fsb, however, at 1:1 the best i can do is 250fsb with really high (slow) timings on the ram.
