Experts, Please Help Me!

Hey again all, I need some expert help here.

 

I am playing with overclocking my athlon xp 2600 Barton. I took out the 3 sticks of Buffalo Generic 256 DDR400 modules, as they didnt overclock that well at all. I then put in 2 sticks of Geil Platinum PC3500 256 MB Chips. (recently bought from drew on this board). I then started tweaking with the settings in the BIOS, and got it to run at 217 Mem. Frequency. Boosting my AthlonXP from 1.91 to 2.08ghz @ 1.75V. I tried going up in voltage to 1.85V (Which is max for my Asus A78NX-E Deluxe Board) and bumped it to 220 mhz, and it wont post. Does anyone know how I can get more out of it? I had put a divider on it at one point before all this (100%)(1:1) and only got to 190fsb stable. I see all these people being able to go past 3200+ speeds. I dont know what Im doing wrong, but after setting the memory to "by SPD" instead of "100%(1:1)" or "AUTO". I can run Prime95 at the 217 Mem. Freq. and its stable. I just want more. Im planning on just using the Geil RAM, as I dont think the buffalo can work as well.

 

Please help me out here! :)

pump up the ram voltage to 2.9 or 2.8, run the divider at 5:4 and/or loosen your timings. Your Barton at 1.85V is a bit much, what temps are you getting? The Stock Volts are about 1.65 I belive.

The cpu is now running at 1.75V, I dont have any Temp monitors ATM on it, but its been fine, playing games and Prime95 for 2 hours now. I was testing it at the 1.85V, but it would just crash games and all. Ill try the 5:4 divider right now and see if it helps.
