I seem to be stuck with this OC. I can get it to 3.7GHz (411x9) at 1.33v in the BIOS...so I tried bumping it up a bit, to 418x9, it wasn't stable, not even when I took the voltage up to 1.3625...thats quite a voltage jump for only +7 in FSB. I tried to see if maybe my FSB just couldn't go that high by trying 450x8 at 1.3v and it was stable. There has got to be some kind of bottleneck here, I'm pretty new to overclocking so take every option into account. Other settings I have at my current 3.7 OC are 1:1 ratio, RAM +0.2 (2.0v), NB +0.2, FSB Overvoltage +0.2, RAM timings are 5-6-6-16 2T. Could this just be the limit of the chip? It really doesn't seem like it to me since I'm not at the limit of my voltage. Thanks for any suggestions, all I really want is at least a stable 3.8GHz.
