Having Trouble OCing past 2.2GHz

Forgive me if I typed some newbish or incorrect information.
Basically, I pushed my FSB to 7x314 (2.2GHz) and everything seemed to work fine at stock Vcore of 13.2500. I lowered the Vcore to 12.5, crashed, and then boosted it to 12.75 and it seems stable. I tried moving the FSB to 328 but for some reason the system won't boot when I do it. Is it because I have different RAM? I'm thinking it is but I'm not sure.

Any input would be great. Thanks. :wahoo:

CORRECTION: Turns out my ram is DDR2 800HMz with 5-5-5-12 timing at 2.1V. I guess the main reason that's keeping me from moving up is the timing?

My Setup:
C2D E6300 at 1.86MHz
GA-965P-DS3 (rev. 1.0)
Radeon HD 4830
CORSAIR XMS2 1GB (2 x 512MB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800MHz (PC2 6400)
("Tested at at the latencies of (5-5-5-12) at 2.1V")
OCZ SLI-Ready 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
(4-4-4-15 at 2.1V)
OCZ500SXS 500W ATX12V / EPS12V

YES, take out the Corsair Ram, Keep in the OCZ set Bios to 2.1v + Timings (5-5-5-12 Example). then give it another shot at OCing.

Sorry I'm being an idiot. I took out the Corsair Ram and now I can OC past 2.2MHz. Only problem is that I don't see the options to change the voltage and DRAM timing.

Thanks CTRL + F1 helped, but when I changed the DRAM timing from 5-5-5-15 to 4-4-4-15, my system wouldn't boot. Also, the memory voltage option still isn't there.

FSB is at 342 and it seems pretty stable, but when I tried 343, it wouldn't POST so I tried increasing the Vcore a little, but I had the same problem. Probably 342's my peak, so I'll just try stabilize it. Thanks for all the help though, RJR. :D

First take your Ram out of the equation. Set your FSB STRAP to 2.0 (1:1) so your Ram will run slower than specs. THEN increase your FSB and see what happens.

Set you voltages to default values, not Auto.

Also find your Ram voltage adjustment, you will need it.
