Hmm well 2.1v with 3-3-3-3 12 @2T was working but it crashed in TF2

Whats the recommended voltage for 4-4-4-12 @670Mhz? I had it at 1.95 I think? What is the lowest I can go and does this board like 1T or 2T better?

N2Gaming, thanks for including that helpful info. It sounds the HT speed will default to 1.0 speeds on the board but the cpu will still be capable of HT 3.0 speeds. I wonder if that hardly makes a difference

Dale-C, did you perform stability tests on your memory using Memtest86+? I recommend running tests 5 and 8 each for at least 20 - 25 minutes (some may recommend more than that).

What model OCZ memory are you running? Are you sure it isn't PC-6400?

Good luck

Your welcome. I think it makes a difference when trying to get the Ph II cpu's stable @ higher overclocks. Naturally we only have 125w ceiling for our cpu's so we are already limited Overclocking wise. Another thing I have seen is better Ram Bandwidth and lower latencies w/mobo's that support the HT 3.0

I don;t really like doing stability tests, they take too long. And my rams is OCZ System Elite PC5300, they have copper heatsinks on them. or something that looks like it.

sounds like old ram or ram designed for intel systems. In any case you should always run stability tests to make sure you won't crash while gaming etc etc. If you don't like to do it while you are using your pc then do it while you sleep or something. start a stability test and go watch tv, take a cold shower or do something other then sit at the PC twiddling your thumbs while the test(s) are under way. That's my

Dale-C, I did a search for your memory and came up with this: http://www.ocztechnology.com/product...e_dual_channel. Is that the correct memory? If so then I'd advice running the sub-timings that are advertised on the website. Your memory calls for 1.8 volts stock.

As N2Gaming suggested above it's highly recommended that you test for stability first. If you're upset on why your TF2 game crashed then it might be wise to perform tests first. An unstable overclock can lead to data corruption which eventually could force you to reinstall everything. I'm sure you wouldn't want that to happen. Listed on the front page is some overclocking guides and stress testing tools. I'd advice checking them out before going any further.

Good luck

I was thinking w/the DDR667 spd's on a 240 pin dimm that the ram spd would be for Intel because I am under the impression that amd uses DDR800 Default ram spd's on the AM2 CPU's. Of course that's unless the earlier AM2 CPU's used DDR667 default speeds that I'm not aware of it.
