Here are my Specs:

Intel Core2Duo E8200 Wolfdale 2.66Ghz

Gigabyte GA-G31M-S2L

G.Skill 2GB DDR2 800

EVGA Geforce 8600GT 512MB

320GB Sata HD

LG 20X DVD/RW Sata

Kalyway 10.5.2 DVD Intel_Amd (sse2/sse3) EFI V8

With the 10.5.3 Update


Now the issue. With this motherboard, i can get to 400fsb from 333fsb easy, temps never get over 32c. Problem is, OSX will not boot, it just sits at the apple logo screen. However if i boot into Vista, it boots just fine. Now if i back off 1mhz FSB, to 399, OSX will boot. I know its just 1mhz, but any overclocker will understand the desire for that last mhz to actually get 1600mhz FSB. So what issue is my OSX installation having that it wont boot when its at full 400, yet is has no issues at 399?
