Wicked. I got my 965 up to 4.1 no sweat where it took me like weeks/months to finally get 4.0 stable with my 970 board. Planning on going further once the TIM cures all the way. (dang you as5)

OK! After long trial and error testing I ended up with sth like this:

http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2416705

650

485

BIOS:

CPU V = 1.44375 V
CPU/NB V = 1.30 V
DRAM V = 1.65625 V
NB V = 1.145 V

CPU LLC = UltraHigh
CPU/NB LLC = High
CPU C.C. = 110 %
CPU/NB C.C. = 110 %
CPU Power P.C. = Standard


DRAM Settings = RAM Speed 1800 MHz --> timings: 8-9-8-24-30 1T TRFC=90ns

Well, it seems that BIOS rev. 0705 is slightly better for Thubans, but actually ... who knows for sure.
To get to 4 GHz I needed 1.5 V under load and that's a way too high for this chip.
Maybe it's my CPU that can't handle higher frequencies because I got once Ph II 955 BE rev. C3 chip and its performance was outstanding. Without any problems I could go up to 4.4-4.5 GHz on air.

IBT temps under full load 4GHz with NB 3100 were sth like 50*C (but it's per core - CPU temp indicator is quite strange on this board but let's assume that it was sth like 57*C because of temp offset that Sabertooth has).
Prime 95 was less demanding and it was 45*C per core.

Unless 705 makes a difference it looks like 203x19.5 (3950mhz) @ 1.43v NB-2800 is the most sensible 24/7 setting for me to leave it on. I'd rather be sitting nice and cool at 52 degrees than pissing away electricity and running on the ragged edge all the time anyways.

Yeap! I do think you're right. To get 4 GHz this chip consumes a lot of power and energy and boost in performance isn't so impressive.

The only thing I have been struggling with were my RAM speeds and tight timings. I would like to know how much I can overvolt my ram (actually 1.65 V) more? No matter I did I couldn't set my ram timings at 8-8-8-24-30 - always failed during POST.
Funny thing, my Patriots Viper II PC-12800 were able to run without any issues with speed 1600 MHz and timings 7-7-7-20-27 1T or even better:

the 1090T are power hungry it takes 1.55 Vcore for me to hit 4.4 Ghz this isen't prime stable about all I can do is web surff

this is a stable settings

I can see you use Windows 7 x32. Well, when I had been using WinXP Pro overclocking was in my opinion much easier. You could find your max FSB faster and the system was more stable. I've never used Win 7 x32 - maybe that is the problem.

2 questions:
What version of Prime95 you use? --> I use Prime95 27.7 build 2 x64 (because I got Win 7 64)
Could you post your results from Memory Benchmark (either Aida Extreme or MaxxMem Preview) ?
I would like to compare it with my results.

As I posted before my actual settings are stable in Intel Burn Test (maybe 10 passes is not enough... I don't know). I also checked my memory for errors in Windows MemTest but there were no errors, so it looks my memory timing and speed is correct.
I can't unfortunately make my system stable in Prime. After 2 hours one of (random) cores just crashes :/

So, maybe I need more volts for a CPU or my memory overheats and then generate errors - really don't have a clue.

One more thing - have you got Channel Interleaving option in Bios on or off?

I had 7 ultimite 64 bit when I bought this board had alot of isues with it so I had a copy of 7 pro 32 when I changed my ssd I when with it but I belive what was a improvement was a combo of things I upgraded from 1333 ram to 1866 and changed cases from the one you see in my sig rig a mid atx to a full atx with beter air flow my temps droped 10 degress on old ram and case I was pushing it to run at 4.0 I idle at 38 maxed out at 60 now I idle at 28 to 25 max out at 50 and wih LLC maxed out under load Vcore hits 1.6 the 1090T needs alot of power it dosent bother me as long as temps stay down

The only thing resembling a complete answer I can get from ASUS support is "It's not supposed to do that", which is a really big help to me and all involved.
Another thing is that the AI Suite OSD will periodically warn me about MB temps dropping to -(max value)*C, and that the +12V voltage is dropping to 3V or 4V (rounded).

AISuite does not play well with other temp reading programs. If you are running AISuite, do not run anything else and you should not see any of the weirdness like you have seen.
