I have great airflow, and the PC is in my basement which yields even cooler temperatures. My chipset only does 1.5 volts, 1.6 volts, 1.7 volts, etc. No 1.65 option.

OK, for DUKE: first of all my mobo was stable up to and beyond 340 HTT as of a couple of months ago. RAM was stable at 255mhz. (these were both with my old 3700 San Diego.)
I'm trying to find the max CPU frequency, which is why I'm here.

For Powertrip: my RAM voltage was @ 2.7 volts when I had it @ 255 mhz with my Sandy. That should still be the case, right? Or would the fact that I'm using a different memory controller (Different CPU) change that?

For Brinnuts, Tubnotub, Mudd and Sideburns, I tried raising my chipset to 1.6 volts, I'll try 1.7 next. I haven't messed with the LDT. I'm not too sure what it is, seems like it has something to do with the HTT??? I think it's at stock (1.2 volts)now. I can try raising it as well.

Thanks so much for the suggestions, keep them coming.
make sure you're not confusing vcore and chipset voltage. 1.7v on your processor will fry it w/ air

and you have a DFI. it can handle 1.7v

and make sure that your HT setting is down to 2.5x. some here will say that the opty can run 1000 MHz stable, but to be on the safe side just lower it a bit. i guarantee it'll make you more stable at 3 GHz

I'm also interested in this as well. At what point do you usually raise the LDT voltage? What are all the other voltages for as well and when should they be changed?

lol, I understand. I'm not going above 1.55 vcore, as I stated in my first thread. My chipset doesen't go in .5 increments, so it'll have to be 1.7.

I thought I read somewhere that 2.5 HT is not as stable as keeping it at a rounded number, like 2 or 3x. But I'll give it a try nonetheless.
