OK, This is my first overclock, I have read every forum out there but nothing works, I have an agena 9600 and all i want is to hit 2.5Ghz stable. I cant get windows to load by just changing the multiplier, but it's not stable. I have tried adjusting the FSB, and it's still not stable. I have loosened my RAM timings, increased voltage all the way to 1.5V with no stability increase. I've disabled the TLB and still notta... HELP!!!!

Sorry new to this forum, and I didn't spell check my post. I can get Vista Business (32-bit) to load at 2.4Ghz from either adjusting the FSB or the multiplier, but it's not stable. I have tried AMD Overdrive with the same results. I know the 9600BE is not a good overclocker, but I've seen multiple cpu-z shots at 2.5Ghz so any help would be appreciated, thanks!
P.S. CPU temp is 40C
try adjusting the voltage to the fsb. sometimes called vtt
then up the voltage on the northbridge.
those are the simple things i can think of off hand. I built a rig for a friend with that CPU and got 2.7GHz stable on a Biostar 780g. list the options youve got in your mobo. some are seriously hindered. ie i never figured out how to adjust timings on the biostar board, which sucked cuz id gotten him ultra low latency RAM
I do not have a FSB voltage adjustment, my NB voltage is set at 1.3v, stock is 1.25v, my mobo has some pretty decent options, i.e. DRAM V, CPU multiplier, NB Multiplier,NB V, HT speed, and all RAM timings. I've literally been at this for days trying every combination with no stable results....
