Here's what I'm running guys:
8 Gigs (4x2gig) OCZ PC6400 800 Mhz SLI (OCZ2N800SR2G)
2 XFX 8800GT SLI (Stock 670/975)
WD Raptor 150g
Heres the issues:
I have got it stable overclocked to 3.0ghz, This is using a 9x multiplier at around 1340 FSB. Ram Timing is 4-4-4-15. Voltage 1.45v CPU 1.85 Mem 1.4 FSB 1.5 Nforce. Memory is Unlinked at running between 790-805Mhz depending on the setup.
When I go to 3.2ghz, the machine doesn't boot past the point where it states the CPU and the speed.
I've done some experimenting like trying to overclock to just 3.0ghz at 8x multiplier and I get the same issue.
So my conclusion is this problem is related to a perpherial on the FSB. When I get past around 1400MHZ I have issues whether its a 8x or 9x.
I'm tryign to get this rig to 3.2 or even higher like 3.6, but I for the life of me cannot figure out what peripheral is hanging at that point. Could it be my memory settings? I've also tried setting the memory at 6-6-6-18 but I didn't touch the 2nd set of memory settings cause I'm a nub and have no idea what they do.
So basic point is that with this MB combo going past 1400mhz causes my computer to stop at the boot screen. Any suggestions?
