    Huh? You lost me here. What are you trying to figure out.

    By the way, you know those rules you said you would agree by when posting? They do state no bumping.

    The G41 chipset is an economy chipset with very limited overclocking capabilities. With a CPU with a 333 MHz FSB freq, you will be lucky to achieve a 10% overclock.

    This should be your first stop.
    Core2 Overclocking Guide

    Shadow's Gigabyte motherboard OC guide:
    It's for an EP35-DS3L but all the Gigabyte Core2 BIOS's are similar.

    For a G41 motherboard, set your memory multiplier to its lowest value, probably 2.0 or maybe 2.4. Push your FSB freq as far as you can. That will be around 350 - 360 MHz.

    With the stock heatsink, you will probably reach 70 C before you reach Intel's max recommended vcore of 1.45 volts.
  6. if i would like to change a mobo... what would be the best and fits my rig? no problems with the reformats... i backup already... do i nid to push the memory? is there any guarrante that my ram will not brake? =(
