Thanks, Mastiffman.
BTW, I have been Prime95'ing my clocks right from stock to 'burn in' the speeds as you suggested, and I'm amazed to say that this went right to 3.8 and 2.4 on stock volts and was (almost) Prime stable (6 hrs on sm fft's - no errors - and two blend tests, three cores went 7 hrs, and another test had all cores go 3:45 before three cores hit rounding errors). I think a slight increase above stock NB volts would have had it passing. But the speeds did burn in on all the cores for at least 3:45 on a single run.

I'm currently burning in sm fft's on 3.857 @ 1.435v, NB @ 2.436, auto volts still.

Will see how far we get, temps are great so far, not even breaking 42c on full load after hours of burning

Thanks again Mastiffman, it seems I'm now on the right track to breaking 4Ghz & maybe even 2.8+ NB.

The Burnin Technique really works quite well. I learned that back in my S939 days...

You should be able to hit 2600 on stock CPUNB volts (actually 1.15-1.3v)

Also make sure that you heat cycle your paste too.

1. Prime95 at full CPU load on all cores for a few hours and then shut down prime95 and the let PC cool to normal idle temps.

2. Once normal idle temps achieved, shut down PC and let ot cool to room temps, Don't rapid cool it or anything.

Note: That is one heat cycle.

3. Start PC up and reach normal idle temps.

4. Repeat steps 1 through 3 for a total of 3 times going through the heat cycle.

Note: This will allow the pastes density to tighten and become as efficient as possible at transferring heat from CPU to the HS... And always remember to clean the HS from dust as regular as possible to keep temps as low as possible. Sounds like a simple thing to remember but it's often overlooked during times of instability.....

NO the only reason i didnt get them is because i thought i would be able to down clock the ram i got up the volts and have tighter timings...jokes on me

yeah I have found that I suck at OC'ing ram and have decided(well maybe) that I might trade my 8GB's for 4 of the 7-7-7 ripjaws but, I want to run some benches with some one that has them first.

Tis what I owned before I moved to Intel. They do exactly what they say they do

Eclipse, I must be one of those rare people that has success using this technic.... It's funny because the whole burnin process for me is to reach a high OC with reasonable volts and then backing them down to safe volts. So maybe It was because of the EM and then owering it back down....
Good article though...

Well i just got a phone call saying that They dont have my Mega Bracket in stock So ill will receive my Mega, the fan clips and my Scythe fans for my push pull setup tomorrow on Tues. The AM2 bracket is being flown out of NY and will ship tuesday and arrive thursday. Son of a *****...this whole setup has been a nightmare...Why do i love the underdog so much?

HT -- 2Ghz @ auto v
RAM -- 1333Mhz @ 7-7-7-24-33-1t-1.65v

So far it's not giving me any trouble in Windows. I ran IntelBurn Test on std for 5 runs and it was fine, so I'm going to see how it is in Windows for a bit, and maybe I'll run a couple of hours of Prime sm fft's, tweak it if needed to stabilize.

The next thing I'm going to do is keep those settings and try the RAM at rated speeds - 1600Mhz 7-7-7-24-33-1t-1.65v, maybe I'll end up bumping the volts a bit. Once this is stable, then ...

I'll try upping the NB, and see how it goes. Then I can get back to pushing up the CPU again.

This seems to be going well right now, hopefully she doesn't blow up next month!

I'll keep you posted to how it goes.
