try not to go above 1.4v cpu-nb v my cpu-nb voltage is 1.375 or something like that soo that would only be a .2 increase

As suggested by HondaGuy:

Quote:
Set the (NBvid to .+100 )for Stock use Up to 3400mhz
ADD more NBvid when you Overclock past 3400mmz
Usually +.200 for above 3600mhz with 2400nb.

I'd like to also suggest that you lower your memory divider. This will take your memory out of the equation. If your memory frequency is beyond it's factory speed then you may run into stability issues. I believe this normally occurs when the reference clock speed is raised.

For the NB voltage try giving it a +.100v bump from stock.

Let us know

Good luck
But isnt ram speed also important? i paid for 1066 speed so id at least like for it to be that :/ i think i read somewhere that these ram sticks can go up to 1200 with the right settings. Its why i was running with 14x274, so that my ram also has nice speed.

Agreed, and CPU/NB speed is more important than RAM speed.

Damn!

Is there no other way to make this 3.8 stable while maintaining 1066+mhz for the ram? After i jumped the clear_cmos pins on the mobo it asked me if i wanted to go to default or "last known good" settings, i chose the latter and it put me back to 14x274, thats why im hoping that theres an alternative to this speed.

an alternative to 14x274?

plus you could probs. get 3.9ghz rather easily if you were willing to compromise which it doesnt seem like you want to

Senior03, I typically suggest this only during testing. If you temporarily rule out the memory being the culprit then you can hopefully be able to focus more on the processor and not the memory as well. Once you have found a nice stable overclock with your processor you can then later on adjust the divider/sub-timings accordingly.

Good luck

I dont think theres ever a situation where ill be able to use all that cpu power, but the ram on the other hand. Id rather sacrifice 100mhz for the cpu in order to gain 200-300 on the ram.

Ill try in the name of progression, but id still prefer a decent (3.7/3.8)cpu speed with a high ram speed over a high cpu speed and low ram speed.
