I finally seem to have gotten 3.64 GHz stable now. Seeing as I was running my E8400 at 3.6 GHz, and now I have a faster Quad, looks like I actually got a decent upgrade.
I am still fiddling with voltages. I was getting memory dump BSODs, so I upped both the RAM and CPU. I may be able to back the CPU off a notch, but we'll see. I'm still going to keep pushing higher, since my temps are still perfectly safe. At first, this rig was irritating me, thanks to DFI's pickiness with RAM settings. Now, however, I am having a blast seeing how far I can push this chip. 4 GHz, perhaps?
Just a quick question, though. Are you NB and HT voltages only dependent on their overall clocks (so, if they are running at 1500 MHz each, no voltage increase) or would do you have to change voltages based on FSB? I am fine running them below stock speeds if it means lower voltages and a higher CPU OC.
I will post a screeny when it gets through this round of Prime 95.
Here's the screenshot.
