The IMC's aren't that horrible on either C2/C3 stepping Phenom II's, contrary to popular belief.
It's not his in particular, it's them as a whole. They aren't horrible, just not capable of handling the throughput of Intel XMP profiles.

Ram timing and voltages (CPU, IMC, Memory) should be set manually.

umm..because it's what works

Whenever i raise my cpu-nb to an unstable clock speed upping the cpu-nb always makes it stable again.
the only time i have heard of raising the actual nb voltage is when going for a high reference clock.

Yep. Look mine. 1600mhz at 6-6-6-18 and 1333 at 5-5-515. My proc is c2 stepping.

Increase nb voltage if you oc using fsb. If not leave it at stock.

It is cpu-nb voltage that needed to be increase to stabalize your imc and memory.
