Mastiffman, I have the AMD Black Edition OCZ DDR3, CL8. I set it up, got 1600Mhz 8-8-8-20-28-1t @ 1.68v running just fine. I couldn't, for the life of me, get it past 1640Mhz, even setting 8-8-8-27-40-1t @ 1.7v.

So, I said the heck with it, I'm just going to see how fast I can get it @ any timings. I set timings to auto, and started clocking the speed. Long story short is I ended up with 1816Mhz @ 9-11-11-24-40-1t, 1.7v.

So, I figured it could do better timings and just started lowering them slowly, and stress testing each adjustment.

I'm running 1800Mhz 8-9-8-24-32-1t @ 1.71v w/CPU DDR PHY @ 1.35v, and it's running great. For the record, I found the CPU DDR PHY volts to be most useful when using high speeds, and less effective @ lower speeds. I had IntelBurn stable speed, but it felt 'weak', and probably would not have passed Blend, adding in CPU DDR PHY volts, bettered the Everest memory scores, and it seemed 'stronger'. I also think it's especially useful with high CPU clocks and high RAM speeds together.

So, try getting the speed you want @ auto timings, and then slowly lowering them, see what you can get. I bet you could get around 1800Mhz @ 6-7-6-18-27-1t out of those sticks.



Prior to install, be sure to set up the RAID in the bios, and RAID utility. During install (Windows) have a usb flash drive with the SB/RAID driver on it. Get it from MSI's website, for this board, the most recent.

When you are loading Windows, it will need the driver to be able to recognize the stripe, and allow you to install on it. Use a USB stick, not the CD, when you are swapping CD's to add the driver it sometimes confuses Windows, and it can cause a problem trying to get the install completed.

Add the driver in from the USB stick, and continue with the Windows install.

Do you need more details?

Merry Christmas everyone!!!!!!

Nice! thanks for the Suggestion. I'll have to try that later. I don't think that I mnetioned that I have my NB Running @ 3.0Ghz Stable at 1.4v (BIOS) and 1.43 (Everest) So that might be where it's holding me back. But I will try the auto thing and see how far that gets me. I might need to crank up my 965 well. It's sitting at stock. Ican get a good 45 -55 minute run out of blend though. SoI know that it's there.

What BIOS is everyone having good luck with? Im still using the 1.5 B4 BIOS because it was the best for unlocking my 720. Now I have a 965 C3 and I am having some stability issues.

Been using 1.7 official since release without any issues, that I'm aware of.

I love overclocking....i cant keep my system at 4Ghz...max temps now that AS5 has cured is 47C full load so i need to go higher now...im not sure about my ram though. I was thinking of doing an FSB overclock but this ram sucks at high FSB, I think ill just try to get 4.1 stable depending on if the voltage wall lets me.

Are you running OCZ Platinums (1.65v) @ 2.1v??

I've been told not to go over 1.75v on the low volt kits. Is this just bs, can we really run these things up to 2.1v??
