OR this one

Thanks to all who replied to earlier posts re my build. I love the system and now it is time to do a little overclocking.

I have tried a few things with Easy tune but have read this is not the way to OC.
So currently the system is running stable with the FSB increased to 340mHz which of course eqates to the processor running at ~ 3.06gHz. Voltage stayed at 1.28v All seems ok
Can I tweak it more with that air cooler?
And should I adjust the timings on the memory? Or the voltage on the memory? Memory divider remains at 1:1. i think the memory remains at stock settings 5-5-5-5-18. I am at work and can not check the system right now.

Any help would be appreciated.

remarkable as unless my eyes deceive me you have no mobo! :p 

I'm guessing that it's a Gigabyte going by the mention of Easy Tune.

Yeah it's a new way to build- no motherboard.
Yikes I cut and pasted and did not include the board!
It is a Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3R
Sorry bout that!
