I just got done installing windows 7 ultimate yesterday in hopes of fixing my instability issues. For some reason I could not run anything on my OC within Vista home premium. I think it was from changing of GFX cards, went from Nvidia to ATI. After the change I was having all sorts of crashes and whatnot. 7 is treating me nice so far. Since I formatted and installed 7 I decided to flash my BIOS also and went from 1.6 to 1.9 as I do not like trying beta anything except for somethings I really want to try. So I should start my OC'ing journey again over the long 3 day weekend. Got to love those paid hollidays! So I should have some decent OC's for you all. Gonna try for 300+ on the FSB *crossing fingers*
Yeah anytime you switch out GPUs' it wreaks havoc on the OS. Typically, I don't even remove the old drivers just install the ATi or Nvidia driver alongside the other ones already in place. Hell I have both installed and running on my rig right now.

Out of curiosity, did you have to bump the NB voltage to get to 285? I got my board to 275 with no voltage bump. Which I thought was pretty dang sweet for an AM3 board.

Just curious.... Is there any specific reason that you guys are trying to run a higher HTRef Clk Frequency?

Well guys I will be hanging around a bit but I am selling my sig rig and getting a laptop. I am in need of a mobile computer and can't afford to have both. I will hopefully get back into desktops when I grad school in a few years. I will see you guys in the MSI 990fx-gd70 thread in two years!

thanks for all the help from you guys!

well i found running a higher fsb helps too increase benchmark scores and overall system performance heres an example of some 06 scores i did monday the top one is a multi oc and the bottom one is a fsb oc,

I was just testing the limits of the board. Although, some other members in other threads have noticed that when they run a higher HTRefClk that their CPU voltage requirements have dropped, and now it seems that gonzo has also noticed better overall system performance.

I might have to mess around with my rig some more after all. And I though it was going to stay this way FOREVER!

Good Luck in school. Don't get a refurb is my only advice to you.

Very interesting results. I might have to see if I get any sort of difference from adjusting the HTRefClk. That would be nice, then I'd finally break in to the 20k's. I was 79 points away from 20k.
PS: What were your mem timings in the top one? Both the CPUz tabs just show the main clock stuff.

yeah i no i forgot to change it to memory , as for timings they would of been 9, 11, 11, 30, as apposed to 9, 9 , 9, 25 because they were @800mhz not 780mhz so bios auto loosens them, but it would of only gained me an extra 20-30 points maybe.

I have been very happy with my G.Skill ram. I have been running them at 1624Mhz CL7 1.45V DRAM for over a week now and haven't had any problems. I'm sure I could do better if I ever got around to it.
