Thread Starter 
You guys are making me want to try the x4 940 again on this mobo w/4x2GB Corsair XMS2 PC2-8500 / 1066.

Maybe the newest 5002 bios is better w/the ram and IMC's or I just got really unlucky w/my hardware

I was always able to post and boot into windows w/DDR2-1100 + but when I ran stability test's I was only able to obtain DDR2-1013 max w/all 4 slots populated w/4x2GB of ram. Of course I like to keep my timings tight as that is where it's at IMO but to ea's own.

However the system now keeps crashing to the blue dump screen, are there any other settings I need to change as well that would stop this happening?
Can you post a ss of cpu-z, with cpu and memory tabs please?

What happened to the CPU-Z Validation ?
Link. sorry i forgot. hmm, i wonder if i disable the virtual ram if that would help.. will try it later today.

Fryer, Have you looked in the bios to see if there is an option for memory remaping. If so enable that and you should get all your available physical ram back. I don't know why I forgot about that last night.

I have hit 3.8ghz with 1.425v, but my cooler just don't cut it.. with my zalman it hit 57*C at idle. i wouldn't dare try to stress it. i think if i went with a good water, or better setup i could hit 4.0. i have been actually reading up on phaze change cooling, and trying to learn how to go about setup and tuning it. i would love to build one of my own. right now money is a huge issue, but i have the compressor already..lol

Just curious, how much voltage are you putting on your northbridge? I'm having trouble getting mine stable at 3.6GHz and I'm guessing it's because the Auto CPU-NB voltage is only giving it 1.2V.

Actually, it would be really cool if you (or anyone with a 940 at 3.5GHz or higher) could post your relevant-to-overclocking BIOS settings. I'm not extremely experienced with overclocking an AMD CPU. I've always used Intel and I'm more experienced with overclocking them.
I've already had to reset my CMOS like 5 times because I keep messing stuff up and it won't POST.

it was at 1.30v for the nb. when i run 3.3ghz or less i use 1.25v. i would say increase it to 1.25v then test for stability. if that don't work go for 1.30v. but make sure you have good airflow to keep things cool.

Just to be sure, the setting to increase the NB voltage is the "CPU to NB HT Voltage" option located in JumperFree Configuration > Advanced Voltage Control, correct?
