The Integrated Memory Controller (IMC)

EDIT: if it's set under 1.35v then you are good. Like I said mine reads 1.4v on software in the OS, on the voltage terminal it reads 1.3v like I have set in bios.

I will shoot a pic of my bios, but it is a matter of what board you have. you may have to do some terminology translating to match what reads in your bios.

What about the P6T SE, is it bad for overclocking?

Not a bad board by any means. Not really known for it's amazing abilities either. base clock max is average to below average. 185-200.
Voltage control acceptable. not loaded with many bells and whistles.
For the price, if you can get a good deal nowadays, it will likely perform with middle of the road results.

Anyone have feedback with X5600 on the Rampage III Extreme

@DRKreiger it says no image available

Well finally I'm getting somewhere with the P6T SE, had to disable XMP to get started with decent overclocks, it seems. It doesn't drop vCore at idle with LLC enabled, as opposed to my EVGA SLI3. But, it seems to be able to go further with LLC disabled, on the other hand. The heatsinks also appear to be cooler on the ASUS board.

Managed to get the Crucial Balistix Tactical runnning at 8-8-9-24-1T @ 1.58V. Haven't primed that yet, but Cinebench 15 can finish a few runs successfully with those settings.

Not the case.. If it is set to auto or all, it may only max out the physical core count. Set it to "12" and see if the throughput drops. HT only useful in highly optimized applications. F@H, Boinc, photo/video editing, ETC.
The physical cores are exponentially faster than a split core into 2 threads. I am not sure why it may not have this affect with your system. But Turning HT off does not cripple a CPU in any way. In fact it has positive affects on many things.

All I know is that I and many others only get 40-60 Gflops when testing in "HT" mode. Disable "HT" or run IBT at "6" threads, and I personally go to 90+ Gflops. I have offered that as a way to check a rough estimate (Gflops in Lynx/IBT is BS anyways) of your systems poer. Especially if you want to see if your fine tuning is have a positive, or negative impact on your system. As well as if your voltage is sufficient for you current speeds. Inconsistent Gflops often means too little Vcore, or VTT, sometime ram issues as well.
