I have 2x stick of 512 Corsair Twin-X PC3200 400mhz (running at dual channel) but I just checked with Cpu-Z and it says each of them are running at 200mhz (200.5mhz) Anyway to reach 400mhz? My system was custom built but I'm slowly learning stuff

P4 2.8ghz 800mhzFSB | Allied AL-B450E | ABIT IC-7 | 1GB (2x512) CorsairTwinX 400mhzDDR DC | ATI Radeon 9800Pro 128mb | 32gb WD Raptor & WD 120gb 7.2k rpm | SB Audigy LS w/ Creative T5400 5.1

I'm sorry, but there is no system RAM that can run at 400MHz clock speed. DDR400 runs at 200MHz clock speed. It's often called "400MHz" becuase it sends data twice per clock cycle. Therefore a 400MHz data transfer rate is based on a 200MHz clock speed.

Try for 234mhz about 6mhz at a time. If you have the D1 chip you should go there pretty easily. If you have the MO chip you'll go there effortlessly. Set your Vdimm at 2.7 or 2.8 and watch your timings. Read Scottchen's P4 overclock guide and start playing around from there.

Been checking up on the p4 overclock guide, but as a noob to OCng and junk I wanted to know if it was possible to use something like <A HREF="http://www.cpuid.com/clockgen.php" target="_new">ClockGen</A> to OC or would going into Bios be better? Havn't played with the Bios much, and will cooling be a problem? I have 3 fans, with an intake fan on the outside case - SiSoftware reports my CPU temp is 39-39.5 Celsius, CPU Fan speed is 6027rpm, and voltage is 1.52. Just don't want to mess anything up too badly.

Use BIOS. Your temps are fine. Software overclocks are not the best.
