My System Specs

I was hoping to run stuff on the slower side, then figure out what my CPU can do. What I used to do on Core2 systems, max out the FSB and memory, then up the CPU multiplier and the Vcore.

Wilson. When you mention the memory at 1450Mhz are you thinking maybe its a little on the high side, so maybe its holding back my NB?

Thx much for the input! :-)
Yeah, that's what stood out. It probably isn't holding you back, but worth a look at.

As far as the bus speeds (HT, or HTT Whatever the H it's called.... ;) ) go... you've really got to get out of S775 motherboard thinking for that.... if you have a look at most PHII motherboard reviews you'll see that they seem to max out somewhere between 300 - 350, so figure on having to dump a fair bit of V into them in order to get much past 275 - 285.
