Gotcha, makes perfect sense now regarding the 2 vs 4 sticks.

So ill keep dropping my multi (and up the fsb accordingly) to boost the speed of the ram

geez im going to have to read up on ram, i cant seem to remember what all those numbers and dashes are....5-5-4 is negative four right?

All that matters is that you try to get the timings as low as possible and the frequency as high as possible lol. I'm assuming your ram is ddr2-800? You didn't specify in your signature. Your ultimate goal for ram would be to set it as ddr2-800 in your bios and having a FSB high enough to get your ram to speeds of ddr2-1000 or better. Good luck mate

I have booted into windows at 3.68ghz on 1.55v but my idle is around 49 and load is almost 70C, the fact that I am using the same cooler as sublime0 makes me wonder. My ambients are around 17C in the room. I am basically stuck at 1.48v or less to keep it under 60C at full load. Which has limited me to a stable run of 3.411 ghz on this chip.

1.55v is pretty high so I would expect high temps. But using the 9700 that you have... you should be quite a bit cooler. You may want to clean off the cpu and HSF and reseat your HSF. While you have it off... try to see if the contact surface on your HSF is flat. If it's not you may want to think about lapping it.

i stopped ocing for some time, probably been drained with failing stress tests. ok now im trying these figures below:

1) 240
2) 14x
3) 3360
4) 1.475
5) 4x
6) prime95 for 19mins
7) no more than 55 degrees celius on prime95
8) ocz vendetta at max fan speed

i have memory at 960mhz now with 2.3v. dont you think cpu temp of 34-38 while browsing internet is good.
NBV: 1.35 (1.20 default)
SBV: 1.65 (1.50 default)
HTV: 1.25 (1.20 default)

i dunno why i decided to mess with these voltages but a little wont do any harm surely.

thanks wbas for your help and this great thread. now im doing a longer stress test using prime95. its now been going on for roughly 1 hour and 30 mins. my temp currently between 47-55 and definetly no more so i guess that very good at load. i just want to ask something, how long do you think i should run the test for to unsure stability cause i heard 24 hours is needed for definite stability is that true? also do i need to do addional tests, maybe also couple of hours for orthos and maybe other important tests i dont know about?

Not to tread on anyones toes, but im bored at work lol....for what its worth Orthos is essentially Prime95 x2...Orthos is meant for dual core (or more) cpus; in that, it test both cores. It really just runs two instances of Prime95.

If you are only running one instance of Prime95 your are really only testing one core. To prove this, run Prime95 and checkout the taskmanager, youll notice only 50% cpu is being used...with Orthos 100% is used.

Running Orthos for a couple of hours is great to show your load temps...and from what I have seen if the computer will pass 1hr in Orthos it should pass 24 (for the most part). A 24 hour test is the best way to ensure stability with the current OC...from what I have read anyways.
