CPU: FX-53 939
MOBO: Asus A8V Deluxe
RAM: 2x512 PC3200 Corsair low latency 2-2-2-5
Heatsink: XP-120 w/ Vantec Stealth 120mm
Grease: Arctic Silver 5

My temps are now 35c cpu || 22c mobo at night, and probably daytime more like 38-40c cpu idle. So I'll say my temps are fine now and that I could clock higher without worrying about temps. Now the problem is the highest I can go with my fsb is 210 and any higher my system is unstable. I also can't use a multiplier of 12.5 or 13, so i'm stuck with 12 multiplier. My guess is the ram which is great ram , overheats and i'm unable to go any further.

I have a stable settings at 2.52ghz: 12x multiplier, 210 htt , voltage 1.55, cpu/12. My goal is 2.6ghz to equal a fx-55 lol.

So would a solution be ram cooling equipment? If so which is the best, and would it fit on both rams , especially the ram right next to that huge xp-120 heatsink.

Are you talking about heat spreaders? I thought memory cooling was really not all that effective? Maybe I'm wrong there.

It sounds (reads) like you're real comfortable with OC'ing, but here is a great resource for OC'ing your board. Maybe there's some ideas around getting more from your memory.' ">

What kind of PSU are you using? This also may cause stability problems. Also list how mant AMPS there are on the +12V rail.

Also, try raising your ddr voltage to 2.8, and if supported, 2.9. Then try and overclock you FX.

Also try loosening your timings, rasing your FSB also raises the speed of your ram, so loosening timings might take a little pressure off of it.

Also set your HT multiplier to 4.
