Ya I read about the IMC and all of that I will make sure not to zap it.
So now that I have found a stable ram setup and a stable cpu setup and a ceiling for my HTT where do I go from here? I am still confused about the cpu multiplier....Do I just use the HTT to OC EVERYTHING or do I up everything bit by bit? The HTT bumps all of it so that is what is confusing. If i bump the HTT up it changes the cpu as well as the ram so thats what I am having difficulty with now...I understand how all of it works for the most part but I am still not sure what to use to oc in the end.

No no no no.....The Base Clock (HTT) ceiling is just a starting point. Now that you know the maximum for your base clock you can start to raise your multiplier to see what your maximum is for that. For this step set your Base Clock to 220, keep your RAM speed low to around 800 - 1000 for this part. You'll adjust your RAM speeds next. Set your V to 1.3 to begin with and your multiplier to 16 which will give you a cpu speed of 3520. Download and install Intel Burn Test (IBT) run it 30 times (you'll see the default set at 10). And let us know how it fares (it's a quick stress test not a full one for complete stability but we're just trying to get an overall idea right now. We'll do a full stability later. Don't mess with the HT speed or NB speed or voltages right now.

So I finished the 30 stress tests and it says I was successful. What do I do now?

Now go in steps. Bump your multi up to 16.5, leave V the same and see if it still passes 30 tests in IBT. With V the same see how many steps you can go up before you get an error in IBT or a BSOD.

16.5 passed the stress test with the HTT at 220 with 1.35V but 17 would not even boot to windows it just went right to BSOD.

I am in with x17 and a 1.4V. I am stress testing right now. That is with the HTT still at 220.

So it looks like at 17.5 and with the voltage at 1.45 it is very unstable. I do not want to go over that voltage. Do I lower the HTT now or what should I do now that it has reached its max at 220 and x17 and 1.4v.

Just stress test the configurations until one passes. Then reinstall Windows. BSOD's occurring everyday are not good for the OS.

Look this is getting too complicated. This makes NO sense. If I up JUST the multiplier for my cpu to x19 at 1.4V it is stable. I ran the stress test for 8 hours and had no issues and no BSODs. As soon as I was told to start messing with all this other stuff like the ******* HTT it all went to ****. I had a stable OC for my cpu and that should be enough should it not? Is it completely necessary to OC the FSB from 200 to 220 if I am going to just have all these issues with it? I tested that as well and 220 was stable...Like this crap is so confusing its insane. Maybe I am really missing something here but I have followed these guides and written down notes and it is still not working out.

Do any of you have skype or vent or team speak or something so maybe u can talk to me and see what I am missing....Seems like there is something that someone is overlooking whether it is me or you guys I am not sure. I have told you multiple times that I passed stress tests....so the FSB **** is just totally messing with me....

If I am stable at x19 and the FSB at 200 and I am stable with the FSB at 220 and the multiplier at x16....what the hell one do I want? I mean its crazy that someone cannot point that out lol. I was completely stable at 3800.....without touching the FSB. Now I have lower speeds for my cpu and I get more blue screens...Now you are saying I have to reinstall windows....

Just insane.

^ I answered this a while back for you. Retrace my posts to you and you'll see.

^ It's a all matter of you, what you want to do. We've tried to help you get the most from your processor.

^ The logic tends to lean towards using a combination of CPU+HTT for people who know how to clock both ways (HTT only clocking is harder), because increasing the HTT (as already explained) overclocks the bus that feeds data to other necessary I/O, like NB and DRAM, etc.

Just insane.

^ Oh, you have no idea.

Relax, calm down. You're jus testing the limits to see where they are right now. That's rule number 1 with overclocking. You're bumping the voltage too much each step. You should be going from like 1.35 if it crashes to 1.3625 and retesting. Try backing down the FSB to 210 and start from 16.5 and go up again. Raise the multiplier by .5 each step and when you hit a wall raise the V by only .0125 each step.

If overclocking were very easy everyone would be doing it. And some chips are easier to overclock then others. My FX goes all the way to 250 on the bus without problems. Each chip and each model is different. That's why we try to see the limits by going in steps.
