I only have these three Voltage options:
CPU Voltage
CPU-NB Voltage
DRAM Voltage

I cannot find one specifically for the NorthBridge other than the CPU-NB.

The Board has a max of 4Ghz NB Freq. but it doesn't have a voltage adujustment?

So He needs to leave the CPU-NB which is the IMC alone and adjust the NB voltage.
I don't have a NB volt option - Check my post above.

So you can't overclock it then.

CPU Voltage = CPU Vcore
CPU-NB = Memory controller and used for RAM overclocking
DRAM Volatge = Memory, Durrr

And there's normally another option called NB Voltage which is used to stabilise high north bridge clocks.

My northbridge is at 3Ghz with 1.4v and it won't be 100% stable with anything less then 1.4v

Wrong sir. CPU-NB voltage is the voltage applied to the CPU's memory controller. NB voltage is the voltage applied directly to the NB itself (rarely needs touched). When you're overclocking the "NB frequency" you're actually making the CPU's internal memory controller run faster. CPU-NB voltage helps out with this.

Okay. Well this sucks - I'll be getting a job soon, So I guess I'll save up for the best board out and then really push my CPU/North Bridge.

If I got a Asus 990FX Board w/ really good VRM's I could potentially pus 1.55-1.6V's through my CPU and get 4.1-4.3Ghz w/ 3-3.1Ghz North Bridge.

3ghz stable NB on a C2 isn't going to happen, sorry to crush your dreams

Listen Intel boy don't tell me what a CPU-NB overclocks, Go and do some overclocking yourself.

Or better yet read some giudes, Infact Here's ONE for you.

Notice how they never touched the CPU northbridge? And why is it that my board won't even boot if I set my NB Voltage less then 1.4v?

4.1-4.3Ghz aint going to happen on a C2 chip mate.

Most highly binned Phenom 2 x6's don't ever get that high.

It could just be that your chip won't do a 2.6Ghz northbridge as it's only really the Phenom 2 x6's that do 2.6Ghz+ NB speeds in general. You'll get the odd one or two quad core that'll do a high NB speed though.

If you could set your system specs up in the 'Edit System'/Add System Tab, we can see what you have.
