We used the settings you provided (with my OC'er buddy modifying a couple numbers by 1 or 2 steps, but not too far from what you gave) and system seems stable, at least with 2 sticks of ram. For some reason though, the computer acts like its running slower than what its saying its speeds are. WoW runs like it's being weighed down with sandbags, Crysis has some MAJOR VSync issues (which didnt exist prior). I have all 4 sticks of 2gb 1333 ram in right now, though we removed one of the gpu's (there was a busted voltage cap on the thing... AND IT STILL WORKED!, though we're not gonna try it again, just trying to get a replacement) Any ideas why comp seems so much slower than it did when it wasn't stable but still running at stock speeds?

Also, I realized that the RAM i'm using is double sided ram, and from what I've read, this is generally a no-no with AMD chips. I need at least 8gb of ram to work in Autodesk Mudbox (renders in real-time to RAM), and was wondering if I should stick with my 4x2gb G.SKILL or switch to some 2x4gb single sided? The board can handle up to 16gb of ram, which I eventually want to upgrade to, so keeping that in mind, is it possible to find any 4gb sticks that will work? I am still unsure of how to tell if its single or double sided and have yet to find anything on newegg. I'm sorry for sounding so nub-like, but I'm learning as I'm going

Edit: Also, as far as I can tell the HTSF errors have disappeared, though due to the drastically reduced performance it is difficult to tell whether the problem has been fixed or just hasnt showed up again yet.
I've never seen a slow down for me, even for stock settings. Do you have CnQ enabled? You can also try going into the Advanced BIOS menu and into CPU Feature and turning off C1E support, which is a power-saving option. Also check if your Windows power options are set to High performance instead of power-saving or balanced.

As for the RAM, I'm not too sure on it. I only have 2x2GB and I don't do any rendering/editing work. I can tell you the 4GB sticks might not be worth the price yet. You can get 2 sets of 2x2GB sets for the price of even just 1 4GB stick, though if you have the money and you want to upgrade to 16GB in the future, it's really up to you. The best compatibility would be to buy the whole 16GB together, but I'm sure it can be mixed and matched without too much complications.

Don't worry, I'm a nub too. I've only started learning how to overclock since Nov or Dec of 2009. I'm very happy I haven't broken any parts yet and have learned much since then. These forums are awesome!

When my RAM is at 1333 (default by motherboard), I past the test without error..
The error its my RAM ?
I'm actually not sure which component it could be, if any at all. All my components are working and stable, though with the wrong BIOS settings I would get the same error message in Everest.

1.7 works the best for me. it allows lower volts which means lower temps. it may not hold true for yours though. i've had stability problems with a few of the beta's. i've been useing 1.7 for a couple months now without issue. if your not having any stability problems then you probably dont need to mess with it. its super easy to flash bios if you do though.

Does any one enable the ddr3 profiles option in the bios under the memory timings page at the bottom for this board? and if so what does it actually do for the ram and board???

Memory profile in the bios is only used if your ram is B.E.M.P compatible,if it is,AOD can automaticaly set the timings when you run it.Hope this helps.

Anyone using the 1B1 bios and has got a stable OC..??

AM trying to get it to work, but am failing even with much higher voltages..the funny thing is it will do memtest in dos to check the ram and the NB oc, but it fails prime, AFTER shutting it off...so i am worried that basically my CPU will not do 800 mhz at 1.0V anymore...am I right?

yes thanks moorhen...and no i dont have bemp ram oh well...if i have defective ram then hopefully i can get it exchanged for bemp ram. I have been talking to RyderOCZ on the OCZ forums and trying to find out what the hell my ram is doing!!! total mystery. BTW you had a 955 chip? what was the basic settings you had to get it stable on prime95? i can't get my stable at stock speeds, looses a core or 2 after about 5 mins.

Are you trying to run that memory at 1600?...if you are please give up as it wont and I spent a year trying various bios's and all that to get it running. the only way it will run 1600 is to keep cpu nb at stock and turn up the volts to 1.35v on cpu nb...then it will pass prime and any other test.

I hope ures is the LV set.

I've really enjoyed my Mushkin RAM. Unfortunately my model is discontinued, but it can run the stock speed of 1600 7-7-7-20-27-1T, no problem. I've run it up to 1696mhz with the same timings and still works like a champ. Here are similar models, but they have different timings and price tags:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820226076

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820226122

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820226123

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820226120

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820226103

Take the one the best fits your budget and your aesthetic needs. Just a fair bit of warning, the third link, the Ridgebacks, are similar to the Corsair Dominators and might block your heatsink's fan or at least push it up.
