I'm having a lot of trouble OCing my 8150 with this board... even went so far as to getting new ramsticks certified by asrock... but for god's sake, I can't get a stable 4400mhz...

I mean, prime runs, but my multiplier keeps going up and down... argh.

AM3/AM3+ CPU's are a wild animal to tame. The ICM is designed in way that makes finding your sweet spot time consuming. Here is what I would do. Overclock you ram only first by using fsb, and do what it takes to get it stable. Then see how high/stable you can get your NB. Do this before you even try to use multi in order to oc the cpu. Keep in mind you may have to raise the cpu-nb voltage another bump by this point. Then finally try and find your highest CPU clock, and again this period may also require an additional bump in cpu-nb voltage. I think if you do it in this order you will make some headway. I hope so.

I followed this outline, and have my 1333 RAM running at 1573, and still achieved the CPU clock I was shooting for 3540 on an unlocked x3 720 BE

I see. That should be my problem right there. I have no idea how to OC ram, still new to all this. I was hoping to leave RAM alone, but it seems it's time to learn more about DDRs smile.gif
Any link to a good tutorial?

1.48 BETA one. Added native 2133 and 2400MHz RAM support/multi.

http://www.box.net/s/2ykptqjc3q18l7rgvtej

For DDR3-2400,you need to adjust cpu voltage and cpu_nb voltage. EXP 1.4v for cpu voltage and 1.25v for cpu_nb voltage.

Turns out it was a cap raised on the MB. Replaced it with an Asus Sabertooth. No issue.

I'm having the same trouble. Perhaps this is the point of origin of all my headaches with this board. I'll ditch it... come monday I'm getting another mobo. frown.gif

In the AMD/CPU forum there is a n extensive tut. For variety here is a couple more links. You can just raise the multi in order to overclock the cpu only if you wish, keeping in mind memory speed will effect overall performance. Good luck, and have fun smile.gif

http://slappablog.wordpress.com/2009/05/28/phenom-ii-am3-overclocking-essentials-guide/

Those links are really for PII chips, but hopefully all the same principles apply.

Watch out for the Asus Sabretooth, A friend of mine is having a heck of a time with the 8-series FX Processorson his. Seems the only Bios that they have that works with the FX series Processors is still in Beta testing. just thought I'd let ya know.
