Okay, so I got all of these upgrades, and I updated my signature now. The question is how can I get my 955 Black past 4.0 GHz? I tried many settings, everything as it is with the cpu voltage a little higher obviously, and the north bridge stock voltage+speed. Anytime I go past 4.0 GHz, I get BSODed. Then I tried raising the north bridge speed and lowering the cpu multiplier a little to get 4.2 GHz - BSOD. Then I tried only "overclocking" my RAM to 1866 (which it should be able to do looking at the RAM specs) and made the CPU stock - BSOD. Am I doing something wrong with OC'ing? Can my FSB not go higher than 200 MHz and CPU higher than 4.0 GHz? I'm pretty confused why I can't get this to work with these expensive parts. Someone please help.
