After reading everything I lost track of where you at. Give a real good update on what you last tried and what default is. I would also like to know manufactures specs are, links are fine if that is easier for you. I will try and help on this one if I can, I do however find it hard sometimes over message boards.

Someone at xtremesystems has same cpu batch, he is running only at 3.6ghz and needs 1.4 vcore for that. Sounds like the chip may not be so good for OCing. I should link thread there to here as well, he is scratching his head over same problem. post 1852

Just my darn luck! Of course I would get the only one that sucks for OCing.

You need more voltage bud. Try 1.35v and see if that works.

I have same batch week as you. In fact you're the only other week 47 I've seen at this point. I'm at 3.6 w/1.28v, however I'm having to use 1.32 in the BIOS.

So far I'm not super impressed by week 47's though...

Ok so I did the following:

3600MHz
800MHz
1.35v to CPU
Auto for RAM

It fails orthos in 1 min and 40secs.

What I don't understand is, I had it OC' to 3.8GHz @ 1.365v and it failed Orthos, but yet I went and Played TF2 and Bioshock and it worked great. I'm not understanding why its failing Orthos?

Sorry for the stupid question, im just frustrated.
