Well I'm stable @ 3.7 now (9 hours of P95).

I just tried to boot into windows at 3.8 . It booted fine, but the second I clicked "Ok" in Prime 95 my system rebooted. Now I think I need to start messing with voltages, as I'm running the board completely stock other than the bumped-up multiplier.

Put some more volts to the NB, it will help to make it more stable... try 1.2 volts

Well you may or may not have read about my ridiculous lack of luck a few days ago, as i got another 550 which will not unlock (or at least not with what i have tried) so i am just back to overclocking 2 cores.

I am really experiencing the idea that every Processor is different now though; while my original 550 was an easy Multi and Voltage overclock straight to 4.0Ghz, this one is struggling for stability at 3.9 even with volts at 1.5.

This chip will be my first complete overclock, in so much as i will actually use the RAM, FSB and Multi to get the most performance i can. So far i am here:

http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=644382

I'm pretty pleased with the 1567Mhz on the RAM, especially as i haven't had to sacrifice the timings to much (gone from 6-6-6-20 to 7-7-7-20.)

I'm in the same boat overclocking-wise. 3.9 is doable with 1.5V...kinda.

I have the unlock though, so I'm not complaining.

I should try for 3.8ghz quad, but I guess I am just content with 3.6

Not the first time I've heard that... Think I might sell my G.Skill and pick up a kit.

Ive got a quick question, could someone explain the difference between CPU NB vid and northbridge voltage?

and when i change my ht speed do i need to change the southbridge/ht voltage as well?

thanks!

Yeah i would recommend it, it seems that the heatpipe does actually have an effect on temps and therefore the available overclock.

Before i started overclocking the CPU i set the RAM to 1666Mhz with the slightly looser timings and it went 10 minutes in Prime without any errors.

Yes, every chip is completely different.

Did you get either one of your x2 550s to run 1600mhz ram stable?
