Maybe you have tooo much voltage. Try just going 1 GHz at a time. Like get it stable at say 3.8 with the lowest voltage you can. Then go to 3.9 and bump your voltage up 1 + at a time until it is stable. Keep doing that until you reach the highest freq you can with the minimal voltage. I had to actually lower my multi and use more fsb to get to 4.0 plus. Sometimes my over-clock becomes unstable and I use different settings, to achieve the same results. Anyways, if you can't find a place in your bios for changing your fsb ratio. Then your board may not have that option. Which is no big deal just keep you ram as close to your specs as possible, without going to far over. Stay under if you have to. You can try to over-clock that later. Only over-clock 1 thing at a time so you know where you went wrong, if it fails.

I say you drop the careful overclocking crap. Set your voltage to 1.5V, FSB to 218 and Multiplier to 19. Then set the NB to 1.3 and raise the multiplier to X 13. Leave the rest on auto until you feel like messing with the memory timings.
See how easy that was? Wait, now your CPU will only last 5 years instead of 10. Bulldozer anyone?!

BTW, the CM212+ needs a little extra TIM because the pipes run thought the CPU plate. CM only wishes it was perfectly smooth...

see this thread for reference. I'm looking for the dram strap setting...
The fsb:dram ratio 1:2 3:8, is stricktly related to the memory clock, its just 2 different ways to say the same thing.

If you put you memory @800mhz in bios, it will use a 1:4 divider to give you 200mhzx4 = 800mhz (1600mhz ddr)

If you put your memory in bios at 667 mhz it will use a 3:10 divider.
Giving you 200mhz x3,33 = 666mhz (1333mhz ddr).

As far as i know that's the fsb:dram ratio you were looking for in the first place.

try doing what i do drop your ram to its lowest possible divider and leave your cpu ratio at its stock setting i.e 16 or 15 put your nb at 1900 or close to it. just push up the fsb 2-4 at a time untill you get close to your goal. set your voltage at 1.45 and overclock till its not stable the bump up 1 on the cpu voltage till it stabilizes. with the nb and ht voltage push those up 1 every 100-200mhz after 2.5ghz you should be at 1.25 and 1.3v on the nb at 2.6 -2.7ghz set your dram voltage at 1.55 and overclock till you hit max cpu o/c. after that push the nb up a lil till u hit max stable oc and repeat the same with the ram. as for the ht leave it between 2000 and 2200 or you will suffet a performance hit.
