EDIT: And I assume you're taking the HTT multiplier down as you up the FSB.
Yes, I've lowered the HTT multiplier down to 4 from 5. I was thinking I had hit the limit but was hoping I hadn't! Anyway, I downgraded to XP Pro from Vista in an attempt to fix this, plus I like the faster OS. I'll post results if I'm able to get further. We'll see!
