thanks, i've thought about it before but i couldn't find any for my obscure board. (although i shouldn't knock it really, hasn't done that bad)

Settings for the memory may well allow you to get what you want...I think that 5-5-5-15 is rather low for getting past 3.4 stable

Every set of sticks has higher timings which allow for more stability..........perhaps trying higher(looser) less tighter timings can get you over the stump you are currently experiencing.

Try opening up cpu-z if you have it and run it then click on the memory & spd tabs....it will show you what your current timings are actually not just what's in bios ....also the spd has suggestions for looser timings that may allow for a higher clock.

Here's the link just in case you have'nt got it: http://cpuid.com/cpuz.php

i have good understanding on what your saying but i not familiar with messing around with ram timings. can u suggest anything for me?

I find with most PC2-8500 ram you have to set it to 1066mhz manually. Auto will set it to 800mhz, so it's quite common you had to do this as well.

To factor out the ram, try unlinking the ram and setting all memory settings to auto. See if you can stablize @ 3.6ghz by upping the vcore and nb voltage. Auto settings for the memory should be quite stable, so if it's still unstable no matter what you do, you may have reached your max OC for that chip/mobo combination.

Keep RAM timings loose until you get a stable overclock that you want. Then, start tightening timings, and use memtest or prime to test the ram. I don't know how others do it, but I tighten timings down 1 at a time and then test it. Of course, this method takes forever. Also, before you start tightening timings try to see if your RAM would be stable with the RAM booster options(forgot what it was called).

EDIT: Check out these two sites to see if you can do the vdroop mod on your board.
