I've read that your FSB VTT voltage should be set to slightly under what your CPU vcore is set to to enhance stability. However, my mobo displays FSB VTT as percentage.

What is this a percentage of? How do I know what % I want so that my FSB VTT is slightly less than that of my vcore? My mobo is in my sig. It has settings of 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, and 20.

I'm asking because I'm having strange stability issues with my setup past 1500FSB where there seems to be a known "hole" on my mobo. However, I was able to get relatively stable after setting my NB to 1.5v, up to around 1580FSB. Anything beyond that gives me more issues.

According to one post I found, the hole ends between 420 and 430. I'm not sure I have the RAM for that, as its rated for 800mhz and I'd have to overclock it to at least 850mhz to keep a 1:1 ratio. Playing with different settings in that range, the farthest I got was freezing at the windows login screen.
