Set multiplier to 8 x 375, stable for 10.5 hours so far. The temps were around 37-41 at load but since I had it running over night and just checked it, it dropped down to 33 degrees. I guess ambient temps dropped down to refrigerator levels during the middle of the night!

So at over 10 hours, would you say that the system is stable enough? I think right now, I'm pretty happy with it at 3.0 ghz. I actually built the computer for my boyfriend and will be moving it to a location that is usually in the 100's F in temp whereas It's usually in the upper 70s or 80s where I'm at. I wonder if the 20 degree difference will affect system temp very much and if it'll be safe to keep upping it. Guess I won't know till I get there.

Thanks again for all your help! OCN rocks!!!

Now if I could only figure out the ram timings now... Maybe with it set to sync mode, I'll be able to adjust timings to 4-4-4-12? Oh.. and should it be IT or 2T?

It should be 2T.

33c ..not 33f, so it was more like 'San Diego' temps..not refrigerator temps.

Your RAM is going to need more voltage to be stable at the above timings..the voltage will droop some, so if you set 2.2 you will probably be running 2.15 actual volts to your RAM...its probably just a tad low right now....oh and try 1T...its faster than 2T and most ddr2 800 will work on a 1T mode.

As for vcore..1.22v is very low! You are probably 'vdrooping' down to 1.18v in windows, when your cpu is loaded. You need to run 1.32-1.35 for 2.8-3ghz..that might even get you to 3.2ghz.

something strange just occurred... I posted at 4-4-4-12-1T but then when I went into CPU-Z, it said that my multiplier was set at 6 and was only running at 2.2ghz when I'm positive that BIOS was set at 8. Now, could it be because I cahnged the RAM and set it to sync mode?

Interestingly enough, when I run orthos, It changes back to 8x on CPU-Z but at idle, it's at 6.

Its just speedstep...you can disable it in your BIOS...it will lower your cpu multi to 6x when the cpu is idle.
