First off, I hope you didn't jump from stock to 260MHz? :-/

You have to go SLOWLY! Like 5MHz at a time. Check stability, make sure it's good, then go another 5MHz. After about a 15MHz increase, do a Prime95 torture test. If it fails, up the voltage a tad. If it fails again, you'll need a memory divider most likely. Then keep doing this until you reach desired speed.

You have an ABit board. I have an ABit board. Chances are great that the BIOS is set up the same way. So, go to "Advanced Chipset Features" and then find "DRAM Configurations". Now, find "DRAM Clock". You should see "Auto". Change it to "DDR333".

You have just setup a divider.

Your RAM will now run at 166MHz, so now it has about 33MHz of room before it is back at it's gauranteed speed (200MHz). That gives you a .33GHz overclock.

Goodluck, hope this helped.

thats exactly hwo far my 3200+ got in bios but i have an asus board, clockgen had it to 2.786, right now it sits at 2.009 it liek majically overclocked itself when i put it back down to 2.0, im a noob in bios
but i knew fsb raised everything, and thats really all i touched

i forget what 5mz is, is it .05? or .5? or even .005!! gasp i doubt it.....

well i tried fsb again and i see it said "CPU FSB frequency"
i checked clockgen to see what the colcks are at, not to oveerclock with it, and the cpu was what i changed the cpu fsb to and the fsb was still 2.0 and so was the ram.....

bfg tech 7900GT@475 still ll 3200+ venice@2.72, 1.55v ll OCZ 1GB ll WD 320 GB hdd
