Howdy again. Does anyone know how to do a few voltage mods on an asus a8n sli premium mobo or an nvidia 7600 gt?
My mobo only goes to 1.55v and I think thats holdong back my overclocking lol.. at 1.55v I can get my 3200+ up to 2.808 ghz stable with settings of
312 fsb and a cpu multi of 9 with temps no higher then 58c full load on prime 95
My vid card however doesn't overclock much at all.
I can get the core up to 645mhz and the mem to 1510 mhz
a jump from 590 core and 1480 mem.
All this is done with air cooling lol... Not to shabby i reckon lol

You might try a different ram divider. You get best results if the ram and fsb
run 1:1. I have found that the 266 divider works out pretty good. Of course you need decent ram. I am not familiar with the ram in your sig.

I'm already using a ram divder set at ddr266 to get my cpu to 2.808ghz.. the ram is only running at stock speeds of ddr 400 to hit that speed so I dont think thats the problem.. I need more voltage to go any higher I think

You might boost your ram voltage to 2.7v. Also you should change your memory timing from 2T to 1T if you haven't already.

I've tried raising mem voltage up to 3v at small increments and nothing works... mebbe I've just hit an air cooled ceiling on the cpu lol.. but I spose 2.8ghz is as good as it gets from a 3200 lol

You probably have maxed out on this board. 3v on your memory is too much. If you left it there you would probably fry it.
