in regards to ht speed, i have seen very little to no performance gain from having it above 2000, and in actual fact when i was benching using the settings in the screenshot i posted a minute ago i scored less with the ht @2400. imo its not worth upping the ht and adding further stress to your oc than is needed, considering the little to no gain that you get.

what bios are being used to get 3000 cpu-nb? i cant boot at 3000mhz with 1.7 (2800 max) but i could with 1.9. im using 1.7 cause it allows me to run slightly lower voltages.

yeah well the HT/NB speed isnt going to make much of a difference in most of the computing i do. I usually keep it in the 2200 range and my clocks range between 3.5ghz - 3.9ghz depending on what im working on. unigen sanctuary will ocasionally throw lower av FPS when i lower my HT below 2000 but its not very consistent and probably a bottlenecking between the cpu and the two 5770s. (still stays well over 80fps )

Hey guys, its been a while since I posted because my board and RAM had been RMA'd because of massive instability. I did get both of them back... finally, and the exact same problems are occurred until I chatted with a guy from OCZ. I didn't realize that OCZ3BE1600C8LV4GK is not supported by MSI on their 790FX-GD70 mobo with out some BIOS adjustments. If anyone is having instability issues with this RAM and mobo then do this:

Set the CPU NB Voltage to {1.35 volts}
Set DRAM Voltage to {1.65 volts}
Set FSB/DRAM Ratio so that th Adjusted DRAM Frequency reads {1600}
Set Spread Spectrum to {Disabled}
Set DRAM Timing Mode to {Both}
Set DRAM Advance Control to {Both}
Set 1T/2T Memory Timing to {2T}
Set DCT Unganged Mode to {Enabled}
Set Memory Timings to CL 8-8-8-24 (TCL-TRCD-TRP-TRAS)

This setup came right from an OCZ staff moderator from the OCZ forum Here

I saw this YouTube- Black edition memory how to on MSI's 790FX-GD70 video on my RAM with my mobo in order to get the BE profile to start working. My question is... Where do you get the F3a Beta BIOS for this board?

I got these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...%20amd%20black

Have not had one problem with them...I am sure others have these ram sticks and are good also...
