My System Specs


Id put money that your RAM is holding you back.

Downclock your ram ratio as low as you can, and start jacking your FSB up. By the time your processor hits about 3.2 ish, you want your ram at about 800mhz. I had the exact same issue with my Q66 and my old ram. I ended up running my processor at 3.2ghz with my garbage ram. Ratios were holding me back.

Dont run it 1:1 while you're overclocking. Get it on a 5:2 or something similar. Underclock the ram massivly, then raise your FSB.
