does it idle at 42 or load at 42?
anything under 60* load is okay. i ran mine (my 4200) a little hotter than 60 when i was trying to bust 3.0, but i dont really suggest it.

i changed the ht to 5
cpu multiplier to 10
dropped ram speed to 667

got the cpu to 2.20GHz. Thats 220 FBS. I will see if i can go further.

When the ht was at 3 or 4 and the multiplier was at 11 with ram speed at 667 I could only go to 220FBS.

I just moved everything back to the way i had it.
ht is at 5
cpu multiplier at 11
ram speed at 800
and cpu FSB/FBS whatever is at 215.
The cpu temp is at 64ºC with these settings.

change the ht to like 4 or 3. it will help you get more mhz out of the cpu cos you dont really wanna overclock the hypertransport, it adds instability. keep it below 1000. (200 x 5 = 1000) or 220 x 5 = 1100, but 220 x 4 = 880 and thats okay. this is an important step...make sure you do it.
dont drop your cpu to 10 it overclocks your ram A LOT. leave it at 11.
then lower your ram speed to ddr2 667 and i bet you will get more than 220mhz fsb.

I just got the blue screen of death with the 215 and the temps where at 70ļC loading. Well guess no more overclocking with this computer so I went back to the stock 200.
