    i can get it pretty stable at 9.5 *200 mhz fsb, but i am using serious water cooling, so be carefull.
    i have the exact same rig as you, just 2*256 MB ram for dual ddr, and i know it can run the 1800 faster than 1900 Mhz, just cant get the mem timings right, if anyone know how please let me know as i thermal wise can go very high!!

    Had my 2100 running with 256MB TwinMoss Cl2.5 @ 2,2,2,6 at 220*11. Running 2 sticks i got 215fsb.
    The method i used was to see how high i could get the fsb with good timings by putting my cpu at a very low multiplier .Then i upped the fsb till it got unstable.
    Then i checked how high i could get my cpu by having the fsb low.
    Then i combined the two to get me overclock.

    What core is the Xp1800+ ?? If you dont know post the code printed on the chip. I have a Tbred B Xp1800+ and it was stable @2100Mhz , would boot @2300Mhz but i prob needed better cooling to keep it stable. If its a Tbred A your talkin mabye 1800Mhz - 1900Mhz, and if its a palmino your talkin a very minimal overclock. Your board is a definet good'n so that wont hold you back.

    You should post your ram speed (pc2700,pc3200) and your PSU. Mite be able to help you a little more. Also mabye the cooler your using.
