So here's what I'm running now and it looks stable in the p95 tests I've done so far. I'm not worried about temps at all right now, I'm worried about excessive voltages in some of the places I don't understand, which is just about all the voltages except CPU and DRAM.

I got to this point mostly following the sticky and tons of great posts I've found. But I really would love some more experienced OC'rs to sort of look over it and make any suggestions and tell me I've I've made any mistakes.

Looks fine.

Thanks for the reply. I could really use some feedback though. I cant believe that I've bumbled into ideal setting? Too good to be true.

Plus...

I was searching and reading everything I could find about OC'ing this board and I found a post that said basically that if you set a voltage to it's min in bios that it would take that as AUTO and automatically way overvolt it so I've set my cpu pll to 1.52 and nb to 1.22.

Those are the sort of pitfalls I'm looking for help with, and just suggestions on lowering voltages in general. Since I really dont understand what most of them do and the long term effects of being high or low on them :(

Also, I want to run my ram in 1:1 the logic being that while it may be a myth that it increases performance, it should definitely reduce the workload for the NB and allow that much lower voltage/heat. But in my bios it says my dram frequency is 801mhz (fsb is 400) shouldn't it be 800mhz? When I manually set my strap to nb at 400 the 801 becomes 800 but it wont post and I had to pull the battery to get it to post. Any advice?
