I've found that I can overclock further with higher memory freq, If I lower the ram multiplier below 1772mhz which is around 14xxmhz I think, it doesn't even post, I've also noticed something else is my system likes higher HT LINK, keeping it around 2100mhz it fails prime95 within seconds, increasing it to around 24xx mhz, prime95 runs for over 12hours +.
I'm pretty sure I've tryed 300bus and memory at 1600mhz, Couldn't get it to post/boot up at all. But I will try this again later, what I notice at the moment, the further I overclock the cpu the more i've got to loosen the timings, etc increasing cpu multiplier from 14.5 to 15, it will fail prime95 until i loosen the timings to around 11-12-11-30, even tho by increasing the cpu multiplier i'm only overclocking the cpu, so dont know what's going on. maybe i'm a complete nub at this.
I have tryed 280Bus, which makes memory at 1500, and again same issue really tbh, timings needed to be 10-11-10-27 for it to even be able to post and boot, I think maybe it's time to buy some new memory.
