I tried that, but for some reason it's not stable. I even had the memory at a 1:1 ratio. I think, and this is pure speculation, that it has something to do with my Northbridge temp (no fan, just a heatsink) or my PSU. I don't know why I think that, just a hunch. Well, until I can get a fan on that NB and/or a new PSU it looks like 3.0GHz (333x9) is going to have to do, plus my memory is running at it's actual speed of 1066 this way, too. Thanks for your input, Revs.
