I brought the VCore down the 1.375. Do you think the BSOD I got could be caused by the IOH or Memory settings? All the guides I've read seemed to leave them on auto. I've only gotten that x101 BSOD once, otherwise I've had system lockups while gaming, but nothing pops up during Prime95 after running it for hours.

loosen your ram timings

and your ram is only at 1.5v... I don't know what ram you are using but some are 1.5.. but most ive seen are 1.65v.. that cpu can safely handle 1.65v to the ram if your ram can.. pull out a stick and check what voltage it is.. and like I said above.. loosen your timmings

also try pulling back one on ur multiplier and bump ur blck freq a bit.

was just looking at ur orig opst, the xms3 ram is good stuff, I have it in one of my systems running at 1773mhz, @1.65v.. you are at 1440mhz @1.5 volts. put ur ram v at the 1.65v, and id loosen ur timmings to 9-9-9-9-25 , bring ur multiplier down and increase ur blck to get the mem freq higher.

at very least if u don't want to change ur multiplier then bring up ur mem voltage.

My ram is 1.65, thought i'd mentioned it. Thanks, will try all that. I don't mind going down to x23.

yea.. you did, I noticed it after I wrote the post..lol.. sorry. but yea, bring the mem v up to 1.65v

reason I said lower multiplier and bring up blck is to get higher freq out of ur mem.

I have the same mem on a sabertooth x58 mixed with OCZ gold running over 1700mhz and a i7 920 (D0) that while finding its peak, all said and done got the ram at 1553mhz and the cpu to 4.18ghz. I see no reason you shouldn't beable to get a stable 4.2ghz out of ur rig. just takes time and a lot of crashes to get there.

ive since, because id like to keep my cpu, have it at a nice 3.6ghz @1.275v, mem at 1.65v @ 1773mhz and my qpi at 3913mhz. all stable.
