Hi,

I finally assembled a working computer and I've been working for the past couple of days to get my 2600k stable at 4.8GHz+.

I can boot into windows at 5GHz+ (Idk how much more, but used 1.4 vCore to do this), but I'm having difficulties getting it to run @4.8 stable. Preferably I'd like to have it at 5GHz but I realize that sometimes, that is simply not possible.

A couple of things:

1. Voltage is giving me a headache. I'm not sure whether to raise PLL or vCore for the most part, and fiddling around with everything isn't really helping me figure out what the problem is, it's just frustrating because things never seem to work.

2. I have 16GB of RAM. This will probably make everything a little tougher.

3. When my RAM is running at rated speed (1600 MHz), I get errors in HyperPi almost instantaneously. Even when I pump 1.65v into them at 1600MHz, it's unstable. Very annoying as it is rated at 1600 MHz @ 1.5v.

4. When I run the RAM at 1333 MHz, everything seems to be a bit more stable (but I still have issues). It seems like the RAM is the problem when it's running at 1600 MHz, and the CPU is the problem when it runs at 1333 MHz.

Any advice would be really great. I've followed a guide (the Ultimate Sandy Bridge Overclocking Guide) for the most part. If you have any questions about my settings I'd be happy to answer them.

Thank you in advance!
