So here's the deal. I think there is more in there. Here's what I've done to get it to 2.4.

(See my computer specs in my signature)

CPU Voltage: Slight increase. Approximately 1.30v now.
FSB: 220 x 11
Ram: DDR 800 @ DDR 667. Effectively running @ 366.9MHz * 2 = 733.8MHz
NB Frequency: 1541.2MHz (took the multiplier down by one)
HT Link: 1100.9MHz

Cooling: Vendetta 2
Case: Antec 900 - fans on full
Temperatures: 34C full load.

So I'm pretty sure there's some more to be had considering my ram is still running lower than spec, as well as my NB fequency. One thing I am worried about is my HT Link speed which is running higher than this board was designed for as well as my other peripherals from the increase in FSB.

What are your thoughts?

This is sort of a bump but more so an update. Check out the pictures from my latest overclock. I got this thing running @ 2.53 GHz @ 1.32V and 36C full load!

Woo! That's as far as I'm going to push it thogh. Have a look!
