Ok so I just bought an MSI P35 Neo2 FR, 2GB of Patriot DDR2 800 PC6400, an Intel E4600 SLA94 stepping M0 and a CoolerMaster Real Power Pro 550. I've been able to get the system stable with stock voltage @ 2.9GHz. FSB/Mem ratio is at 1:1.25 with the FSB set at 243MHz. So how do I eek out that extra 100MHz? Help?

Up the vcore in your BIOS. Run Prime95 and keep an eye on the temperature. If it doesn't work, more cowbells.

More cowbells...I've tried everything. I adjusted CPU Voltage, FSB/Mem ratio, diff mem timings, etc. I can't do it. It's stable @ 2.94GHz. So I guess I'll leave it at that. I'm just kinda bummed because everything that I've read says it's relatively easy. While some might argue that 2.9 is good enough, all I have to say is...it's not 3!

I take it back. I bumped the vcore to 1.35 and manually set the mem to 1.8v. I pushed the FSB to 250MHz and it's perfectly stable as far as I can tell. Thank you much I am very pleased.
