That's my next step. As I recall changing the fsb changes several other settings.

ok Key things to take into mind HT keep it at 2600 or under never over you can have it 2660 but don't go over 2700 2600 would be the best to keep stable

now when you use FSB that will change along with the CPU clock so that is why you must down clock the multi up the FSB adjust the HT to keep it with in 2400-2600 range preferably 2600 and you should be alright also might might run less voltage depending on how it reacts to the FSB some limits are like 250 some 270 in case you wondered there are many tuts on FSB overclocking

I use a combination of both multi and fsb but in your case you are going to rely on FSB mostly so it will be a learning experience

Thanks for the excellent advise.

I'm happy with the CPU side but I have had to back down on the GPU as I was having random freezes related to the gpu driver. I have gone several days now without a freeze. It would always self recover but I shouldn't have them in the first place.

This forum is possibly the best Windows resource on the planet.

That has been a issue with the 7870 for some reason they blame 2D for that Crash and recovery

it is said to overclock the 2D portion of your card to 300mhz and it should stable out Adjusting 2D clock speed with ATi cards?
