I just finished putting together a new PC for my
daughter's family. It's gone pretty well. BTW, the Samsung SyncMaster
910T LCD monitor is VERY nice. Lots of good reviews, including Consumer
Reports, and they're right. But, that's not my problem...

My problem is that overclocking doesn't seem to work at all. The
configuration on the MB is:

- ASUS P5GD2 DELUXE, BIOS ver. 1007
- ASUS EN6200TC128/TD/16M Geforce 6200TC PCI Express x16 Video Card
- Intel Pentium 4 630 Prescott 3.0GHz, 2Mb L2 Cache
- Kingston ValueRAM 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 533 (PC2 4200) (I picked this
memory since it is on the Asus QVL for this MB)

Prob'ly not relevant, but just in case:
- 2 Seagate Barracuda ST3160827AS 160GB 7200 RPM Serial ATA150 Hard
(I installed the drives as one mirror volume using the Southbridge RAID
function (ICH6R). I turned off the Promise and ITE RAID chips in BIOS.
The machine boots off this mirror set.)

As long as I keep the CPU and memory speeds at default (auto on CPU, SPD
on memory), everything works fine. 386MEM testing runs overnight, all
tests, no errors.

Any time I try to overclock the MB using either AI Booster or in the
BIOS using NOS, the MB won't boot. This is true at even the smallest
(3%) overclock percentage.

Are there manual memory timings I should be using instead of SPD?
Manual voltages?

Thank you in advance for your help.
