memory voltages are generally listed as vcore2 if not ddr/mem in most programs. HWMonitor and Speedfan both show memory voltages, the former as ddr the latter as vcore2. As far as northbridge temps, I don't believe any programs list it. I could be wrong, but none of the temperature readouts suggest the general heat scale most people describe on a northbridge chip. Honestly though, you don't really have to worry about it that much, they are able to take more heat than your cpu. If you are looking to take the chip past +.2v and don't feel comfortable with it's warmth, pick up a scythe 40mm kaze fan and it torques into the heatsink with ease (at +.2v mine is just warm to the touch at load with that fan), otherwise just focus on cpu and ambient temps. Carefully when torquing the screws on the nb heatsink, though, it's just a pushpin spring system so you can move the heatsink around pretty easily.

Impossible to say. Did you run memtest? Is it stable? Just run memtest at least once all the way through, then go back and start to tighten your timings one at a time. If you get an error in the first 4 tests, it's most likely a fsb/mch issue, otherwise try upping voltage, if that doesn't work you most likely will have to get new ram or cut back on your o/c.

Good lookin out! I'll run memtest and see whats up

You probably don't need any of those +0.1v to be honest.

Your problem is your Vcore still isn't high enough. I can't achieve true stability at 3.20ghz unless BIOS 1.3875v (Actual Vcore atleast 1.3275). Kick it up some more, it takes MUCH more once you get that high.
I can achieve 800mhz using a 2.40 multiplier, with a fsb of 333x9 = 3.0ghz. Using this, I can drop the Vcore A TON. Right now I'm down to 1.26250 BIOS and 1.200 CPU-Z (and still dropping with experimenting). I keep dropping and it's still posting and running prime95 w/out crashing. And now the max temp under load is around 38C (and 40C max). I also dropped the +0.1v as per your suggestion, which is fine.

What do you think? Should I keep where I'm at? Is using a 2.40 multiplier fine as it gives me 800mhz? Or is it preferable to use a 2.0 multiplier?

I don't need to get the max speed from my cpu. I prefer to get better speed but balanced with stability.

I just would like to know what your opinions are? I'm afraid I might be missing something. Thanks again for your help.

Well i switched boards as my P5N32-E SLI didnt really like 4gigs of ram.

Pretty nice board.

Voltages are :
Vcore 1.50 in bios . (Reads 1.46 in Hw monitor vdrop ftl )
NB +0.2
FSB +0.2
Memory +0.6
Memory : 1111mhz at 5-5-5-15-2T at 2.2v

Thanks very much Darin, speedfan says 1.8.

np dude. I actually think one of the temps is the northbridge now, but I'm still researching which. will let you know if I learn the answer.

The M I T (or whatever the abbreviated thing is) only lists CPU stuff and has 1 memory option... lol ?

Won't really be able to tell unless you can measure the temperature or you have an idea of your voltage setting vs its rated voltage.

Just running a higher speed is rarely the culprit.

If the cpu voltage drops under load like when im folding it drops from 1.475 to 1.44 does this mean i need more voltage or is that just a error reading it in speedfan and cpuz
