Check out the excellent overclocking guides found as stickies at the top of the forum posts list. Also, please don't use only capital letters as that is considered SHOUTING.

Typing in all caps on a forum is rude, and it IS considered shouting.
The people who have been here a while, like Mondoman, who can offer you excellent advice, simply won't put much effort into answering a post done in all caps.
Of course, as expected, some newbie will chime with absolutely nothing to say except "I don't mind all caps" can't help at all with your question, but I like caps, can you make them pretty colors too?

Caps or no camps this shouldnt be turned into a flame & people should get emotional about how people are typing.... in caps or not... advice or no advice if someone or no one doesnt want to help them all the best... it was worth a try im not goign to get emotional about it... Thanks anyways cheers.

according to your second piture, it looks as though your FSB is at 250, your multiplier is set to 10, and your HTT multi is set to 3 (3x250=750 HTT).....and ur voltage looks like was increased a bit to 1.472........so go into your BIOS and change those settings to see what u get....

CPU Freq - 250
CPU Multi - 10X
CPU Volt - 1.472


oh and id suggest you upgrade your RAM....u have PC3200, go PC6400 and you might get another increase in your OC

Just a note that there is no such thing as PC6400 DDR RAM.

I stand corrected!! Nice catch by the way! PC6400 is DDR2 whereas he as PC3200 DDR.......read too fast and thought it was PC3200 DDR2.

Now I was looking at his post and i noticed his HTT link is down to 750)3x mutli x 250 bus). Wouldnt that really offset the point of achieving 2500Mhz OC with a low HTT?
will he or wont he achieve the same 2500Mhz by using a 4x multi on on the HTT, so he would have a 4x multi X 250MHZ Bus = 1000MHZ HTT)

Since the HTT doesn't really affect realworld performance, I tend to ignore it.
