i seem to be hitting a wall whenever i try to go pass 255mhz x 10multiplier.
i had once got it to 2.6 a while ago when i was still using the official 04/06 bios. but now i switched to the 2-bta bios, i seem to be hitting a wall. i've probably tried tweaking everysingle option possible in the bios settings. from tight timings to loose ones..high and low dividers. just cant get this damn thing stable at 2.6? is this the last of my manchesteR? taht i can't even hit 2.6 - but i've done it once? ARG! i've memtested each stick individually when doing test 5+8, both 20+ loops, and then finally tested them both together for another 7 hours or so and all passed. i've also tried as much as using 1.55vcore, yet..damn thing still fails orthos anytime from 1-3 hrs. i've tried increasin a notch or two on my rams aswell..went up as high as 3.0vdim. and still no go.. any help is appreciated. thanks

I wouldn't go above 1.50Vcore myself.
Try the 180 and 166 memory dividers.
My Ultra-D has been at either 2.9 or 3.0GHz for almost 3 years.

nF4 Ultra-D - A64 Opteron 146 10x2900MHz (2.90GHz) - Zalman CNPS7700-CU hs/fan - OCZ 520w PowerStream - MSI NX6600GT video card - 2x1GB G.Skill F1-3200PHU2 - 74GB WD Raptor SATA HD - 160GB Maxtor SATA HD - 250GB Seagate SATA HD in Bytecc eSATA enclosure - NEC ND3520A DVD Burner - Thermaltake Tsunami Dream tower - Windows XP Pro SP3 - Sony floppy drive.

try a different bios, I'm still using the 632-3 bios because to me it seemed better than the 704 any revision for my TCCD

I've been messing w/ my system lately and since I have TCCD have been thinking about trying a Merlin bios but I can find any info at all on the differences.

Try playing with the DRAM Drive Strength and the DRAM Data Drive Strength to get the dividers working.

I'm using Weak 4 and 1 (50% reduction) respectively, for the system in my sig.
