I was just wondering with my setup what is the best oc i could hope for

the highest stable i can get is about 3.2 before i got the ddr533 i had 400 and could barely brake 3.0 i was wondering if i got some ddr2 667 would i be able to achieve a greater oc?

Yeah, it is sweet. I have to update my sig though, I've put it down to 3.5Ghz due to summer here.

Hehe ya its just starting to snow here although my aircooling method is in no way comprable to yours it still stays pretty damn cool around 25@idle 65@load
on some foxconn heatsink that virtually doesnt exist but it works

25 idle is very good for a Prescott. Mine idles at 35-40C in summer, but only goes to about 45C under load. Thats passive water cooling for ya. idle and load are pretty much the same.
