I have seen people mention loosening timings quite a lot, but why would I want to do that? Obviously it may help increase my cpu speed a bit, but at the cost of memory timings so overall I wouldn't be getting an increase in performance....or is that complete rubbish?

so i think your safe.
and have you upped your FSB voltage as well?
and how about your ram voltage and timings?
lol, you can't possibly use your board as a comparison. thier completely different chipsets .

I've also got the asus commando. in BIOS i'm running my northbridge @ 1.46v. but PC probe reports it @ 1.49v

I'd hate to imagine what PC probe reports your voltages at XD. 5 months you say?. well, perhaps your lucky. although ive heard stories that the P965 can tolerate quite a lot. (in fact, even at stock, its overclocked...)

I gotta ask though: whats your southbridge voltages set to?, do you run with stock cooling or custom?. after reading what you've just said i'm tempted to push my northbridge voltages up in the hope to squeeze out a higher frequency on my processor...

I had the same board, couldn't get anywehre past 3.2 (3.2 was not stable, but 3.06 was) with either quad the G0 or B3, board just didn't have the guts but although I had no luck with a bigger OC, I was extremely happy with it's stability.

Its not complete rubbish. Modern PCs see little beneft from tight timings. Higher memory or CPU speed will almost always out perform tight timings. Besides if your oc still isn't stable after lossening your timings then that isn't the issue and you can put them back how they were.
