Excellent that solved it, I just booted at 330 x 9 = 2970. I am running Prime95 again and am still seeing CPU temps in the mid 40s. I left it on all last night and woke up to 46 (I love this cooler - Tuniq Tower).

Noob question inc: Do I want to set my system memory multiplier high or low for best performance? I booted successfully at 2.5 and I'm not sure where to go from here. My memory is of the DDR2800 variety and runs on timings of 5-5-5-15.

My second question is what are the pros/cons of lowering the CPU clock ratio? I currently have mine set to the stock 9 but I know lowering it has an effect on the memory (more bandwidth?). Do I want it as high as possible or as low as possible and why?
