OCing the CPU:
Pay most attention to the CPU Votlage (NOT VDD Voltage) for stability. increased HT Ref Clk may require more voltage to CPU than standard CPU Multi OC.
OCing the CPU-NB (Not NB chipset or it's voltage):
Pay most attention to the CPU-NB Voltage (once again, NOT the VDD voltage). Dram Voltage is also an "AUXILARY Votlage for the CPU-NB (IMC- Intergrated memeory controller... If you didn't already know that!) So running more than 2 Dimm Slots populated at once may benefit from a light increase in Dram Voltage as well as CPU-NB Voltage.
-Hypertranport Sync Flood Errors are "Mostly" caused by Lack of volts to the CPU/ CPU-NB.
-Freezing is normally caused by lack of Dram Voltage
-Errors or bluescreens can be caused by Lack of voltages.
- Best to Download Prime95 and FIRST run Small fft's test on CPU to ensure that CPU OC is stable THEN "IF" stabel run Blend mode to enusre whther or not CPU-NB (IMC) and ram are stable.
- It's Best to Run Blend For 12-24hours to ensure complete Stablility!
Any rough voltage figures for say 250-260 FSB and a 2600Mhz NB clock?
