Default amd stability question

ok i have stabilized my system at these settings:

240 (x11) mhz (2.64)
ht x3
ht link is like 721
ram timings are 5-5-5-12.
ram frequency is 440 mhz

any noticable improvement by trying to up my ht multiplier to x4?
this will raise my ht link speed to the 900-ish range.

i would have to stabilize the system again, and may end up having to change the 5-5-5-12 to 5-5-5-15 (or 18).

pefrormance-wise, is it worth it?

or should i go how i am until i can upgrade my mobo to a better oc'er (this one will not give me over 1.9v on ram, for one thing).

any opinion welcome!
thanks!

I say really get the new motherboard. 1.9V is really low for a maximum

yeah, i know...i didn't understand as much as i do now about overclock requirements of motherboards.
any suggestions?
i don't think i want a crossfire, though. they seem to be really buggy(from what i have read on newegg).
thanks!
