Ok well i've figured out rather quickly that I don't have many options with the multiplier as it's not unlocked on this cpu. That's fine I can deal with that. When my new ram shows up (rated to 1200mhz) I should beable to push the cpu another 3-5 hundred mhz giving me close to 1ghz more than spec. The current mushkin 800mhz ddr2 is the only thing holding me back at the moment... it won't boot when it gets past 800mhz. I've gained just over 2000 points in futuremark from overclocking... so far I'm happy.
