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.

Yeah I bumped up th NB to 1.3 i think, and was running the NB at 2500ish

I noticed that there is not much of a difference with using stock HT ref with increased multis for benchmarks, but my system is more stable when I get the CPU around 4.0ghz speeds while using less voltage. I have a 955 C2 from Newegg (bought August 2009) and am using the 1.9 official BIOS.
Wow bro those are some nice clocks, I hope to hit as high on the ht ref.

ok ive just done some 3dmarc 06 tests as requested by mastiff, i am also interested in whether it actually makes a difference to performance raising the fsb, as it seems too be making a difference when doing real world things, and also helps slightly when it comes to benchmarks.
the first screen shot shown is the origanal run with cpu oc'ed to 4.2 using just the multi,



this next one is with the cpu oc'ed using the fsb @4.2 again, also i set both the nb and ht slightly lower but couldnt match the ram speed to the first 06 run, but lowering the nb and ht should even it out,



and finally i did another run with a fsb oc @4.2 but this time i wacked the volts up from stock (1.39 ) to 1.5,



as you can see from above there is a slight increase in performance by oc'ing using the fsb but not as much as i first thought but still every little bit helps.

just ran 3d vantage again, got P7334 with 3.7ghz, NB@2800, gpu @ 675/1050/1600
seems phenoms aren't that far behind a i7 975@5.1ghz in terms of cpu speed or am i wrong lol...

ok ive done another 3dmark 06 run to try and find out if a fsb oc is better in performance than a multiplier oc, this time i set the nb, ht, and the ram lower than in the multiplier run to insure that they did not play apart,
as you can see from the below screenshots the fsb oc does yield better performance over the multiplier oc even with everything else @ lower settings, even though its not a huge increase its still nevertheless an increase.
