I then got greedy and went back again and set it @ 3.0, and then failed boot.

I went back to 2.9 and then go this error:
I rebooted, set @ 2.8, and here I am. Very odd. I suppose if I set it at 2.9 right now I would be fine.
That just means something was out of whack and there was a read error. Happens to me a lot when tinkering.

If you booted 2.9 go and see what it can do. Some light medium stress. Just build a baseline. For exmaple: from 2.8-3.1 at 400 fsb it takes me very little vcore bumpage to get stable. From 3.2 upwards the vcore has to be bumped regularly and in larger increments. But my chip is epic fail on all fronts so I've gotten used to it already. Took me 10 x 400 fsb @ 1.42v to get it stable. Meh. Not worth it to me. 3.8 is fine for my needs.

But, like I said before, an E7400 and an E8400 (even a bad E8400) are very different. So expect higher volatges for everything.

Lol.

Computer parts seem to be my nemesis. They hate me for some reason.

@ dennyb. Wow. I'd be happy with a plain ol' 500 fsb. Just to see the numbers in CPU-Z and say "Okay...I can do this..."

But, work with what you got until you can get better, I say.

Work with what ya got, your already good. Can't wait till you get a new chip brother. How long and what will you get?

Hmm error on core 3 (Occt - cpu) with all the same settings but ram at 1138mhz instead of 1055. Memtest ran 2 passes with no errors on the memory.

Just wanna add that I have been running this board for a while and its still chugging along nicely. Nothing amazing but its got my B3 Q6600 at 3.24 360x9 with 1.376 vcore I believe. Its had this oc since I got my Q6600 put back in it.

Wish I still had a 8400 or something to play with, considering how easy it was to hit 600fsb with this board.

I am duly impressed--and that 600 is validated

What is the best FSB you have gotten with a Quad?

Monday I go and take a mariner (or whatever it's called) test at the Coast Guard so I can board barges and roll out if Kirby needs me to. Already passed my physical and got doctor clearance. Re-orientaion after the test. Thursday maybe, back to work.

Figure a month to get settled back in nicely. My girl's an RN so we aren't starving but being on a disability lay-off has taken us down a peg or two.

Hopefully in Sept. a Q9550 and a 4890 to start the upgrade process. I saw your post in that one thread where everyone was saying "775 is dead." But to me, an Average Joe, a quad at 3.8-4.0 GHz would suit me for years to come. Hell, a quad at 3.6 would run circles around my Duo at 3.8--in Vegas Pro, Particle Illusion....

Problem is I probably won't be around as often. That's going to be the hardest part. I love this site and the people here. You guys have taught me more than I would have ever imagined I'd know about a computer.

Good luck on your test and spend as much time here as you can

Would you prefer SMALL pictures? I'm confused, pictures should be much easier to read than a wall of text of specs.

I have no idea what "loading optimized defaults" is. Just read my last post, that's all the info I have.

Settle down, son. It's really easy. To use the MIT form you don't have to print anything out.
1) Download and save the MIT Form
2) Open the MIT form in Notepad
3) "Save As" whatever overclock you are shooting for (3600_400x9) for instance.
4) Open ET6 and Memset. If you don't have them installed, do it. ET6 is on the DvD that came with your MoBo, and Memset can be downloaded.
5) Copy the information from ET6 and Memset onto the MIT form
6) Save the MIT Form and Post it here as a QUOTE.
This is the best way to provide us with information which we can use to help you.

Zoiks!! I wasn't able to get 600.... even with half my RAM removed.

600fsb... Jesus. That is truly amazing.
