Hi guys, sorry for the noob question but I just bought this motherboard and I bought OCZ Gold 6 GB DDR3, but I didn't knew that this ram was optimized for core i7... Can I make it work on this motherboard? I got the Phenom II 965 too. Thank you

Sure, it should be ok. You may have to raise the volts +.02 to .04v to get it stable @ 1600Mhz and rated timings (8-8-8-24-1t), but you should be fine with it.

You might have a bit of trouble with three sticks at that speed (maybe). The IMC's on these chips are a bit limiting. If this is the case, drop the speed to 1333Mhz, and lower the timings (volts will stay about the same as with 1600 8-8-8-24). The performance should be about the same as well.

Hey everyone, been watching this thread for a while and didn't create an account until now (finally got my first custom rig ) . I have a few questions though. I am trying to stabilize at 4.0GHz with my 965 and 850W Corsair, I have tried different voltages but just can't find the right settings. Temps are fine at 52 load and 27 idle with the H50.

These are my settings now and it's not stable at all, but kinda shows you were I'm at now and what I want to maintain. Stabilizing at 4.0 or even higher is what I'm focusing on and because I am sorta new to overclcocking I though it was better to ask before doing anything stupid.

If you can just point me in the right direction(s) that would help me a lot.

These are my settings now (unstable)

Nice job mav!

How's your NB and RAM? Got some good speeds on those as well?

Ram at 1333 CL6 and the NB at 2600. Max on NB was 2915, but that was for a super pi run.
