ok i have g31m-es2l mobo + celeronE1400. + 800mhz ddr2 memory. currently @ 9x250mhzFSB, and 667mhz ddr2 mem speed. Can some1 that knows more than me lol, plz tell me what are the best settings for me, for best performance gaming etc. ty.

As I told you in your other post, your Celeron only has 512K L2 cache & that hinders the performance. Later model Pentiums have 2MB L2 cache, Core 2 Duos have as much as 6MB. You have a weak CPU no matter how you slice it.

Your overclock settings are incorrect. For best performance, the CPU & RAM should either run at 1:1 or 1:2 ratio. That ratio is based on frequency, not DDR or QDR ratings. Right now, you have the CPU at 250MHz frequency & the RAM at 333MHz. That gives you a ratio of 3:4 (250:333). You either need both running at 250MHz or both running at 333MHz. 333MHz is the obvious choice because it is one of the "standard" settings.

Shoot for 3.0GHz (9 x 333MHz) with the RAM running in sync at 333MHz (667MHz DDR). It may be necessary to increase the CPU voltage to stablize the overclock. Make sure to lock the PCIe at 100MHz & to disable all Spread Spectrum settings (if there are any). There may also be some sort of RAM divider setting that will need to be adjusted.

there are 4 revisions of the board:

Buying a better CPU is worthwhile investment............

Try one of these if possible:

Here is a good buy:

These are links for NEW CPU's if you can swing it. Also check your BIOS version and make sure your BIOS supports it (F4 BIOS if you have the Oldest version of this board) on link supplied on response #2

About the memory speed its DDR2 pc2-6400, Running @ 667MHz does that not mean, 2x 667= (1333MHz)?? i thought i had it running @ 1000MHz FSB & 1333MHz mem.

i know my motherboard is pretty poor, it wont let you adjust memory settings properly, @ the moment im just trying 2 get the most of of my CPU!!

i have (rev2.0) mobo!

OK so i should set my fsb to 333MHz!! But when i bump up my FSB the ram automatically goes up on its own?? out of sync??

You may be mixing up FREQUENCY, FSB and memory speed.
If your board is set to a frequency of 333MHz (really 333.3MHz) then your FSB is 1333MHz due to it's multiplier (333.3x4=1333). And your RAM is DDR2 (dual data rate) (333.3x2=666.6) or 667MHz (memory multiplier 2.0 if you have the option). And it was suggested that you run your CPU with a multiplier of 9 (333.3x9=2999.7MHz=3000MHz) or 3.0GHz
You will need to set your memory manually if the automatic tries to push it too high on you to keep it in sync. Your memory will not pose a problem if you have to run it higher as long as you keep it under the rated 800MHz, but you will be out of the optimal range. Over the rated speed you will get into stability issues, a need for increased memory voltage, and premature memory failures.
If you can swing it an E7500 Core 2 would run much better, I'm running one on a G41m series board at 3.54MHz stable for over a year now.

Hello,
That cpu is dual core not as weak as you think http://www.cpubenchmark.net/ and http://www.cpu-world.com
check out the sites. My athlon 3800 64x2 has lower scores and my athlon 64x3500 has much lower scores
