( seems to hold 1h of prime95 27.7 p2 just fine )
And my second question. Iv seen someone here say that that the vcore needed to get the CPU stable had increased as he added more expansion cards iv got crossfire and a PCI-E sound card, does that affect my stable OC vcore ?
nice to hear that, did you only change your main timings or did you change from T1 to T2 as well?
Timings are extremely tricky, sometimes lower latency can product worse results and sometimes higher are better, the reason being that once in a while you might set a timing off from what it should be and the controller will have no choice but to fix it to the highest value. I think perhaps you expect too much from memory OCing, it really makes very tiny difference in real world OC unless it is in a benchmark like superpi that relies on it. Also some benchmarks crave timings and some love bandwidth. Instead of 35 try 32, 31, or 26 even. You did a big OC though, that is pretty nice. I think you did a good job, so you weren't able to OC that high until the latest BIOS update?
For the extra PCI-E devices, try to plug in that extra PCI-E power plug, it is a SATA power receptacle located by the SATA ports. If you have no issues then don't worry about it.

Still having failures of my USB microphone adapter (Andrea Electronics USB-MA) to start at Windows boot, getting Error Code 10, The Device Can Not Start. Unplugging and re-plugging the USB-MA will get it working; eventually, it can take several tries. Once the USB-MA is recognized and working, it functions flawlessly thereafter. I also had the USB Overload message, after plugging a USB Flash Drive into the USB port on my keyboard; the keyboard and mouse are plugged into the USB 2.0 ports on the back of the PC. Really surprised the USB drive wouldn't work on the keyboard port, that seems really silly. I'm not sure what could be even lower power than a USB drive that would
work, nothing in my PC accessories inventory that I can think of anyway.
Have you tried plugging first into the two USB 2.0 ports then the USB 3.0? If you plug into the front panel ports, does the same thing occur.
BTW more USB devices you have, or devices in general, the longer the POST will be, that is how it works as each device needs to be initialized.
Do you have another system to try that USB microphone on?
