K guys, now that I got my rig cooled like it needs, Im gonna be restarting my OC from scratch. I shooting for 4ghz+ with a 220 fsb or more at least. Im on 4 dimms of 1333, and hope to get 1600 out of them. Heres my load temps 30 mins into OCCT Linpack at 204x16...

1.45vcore cpu, 1.4v cpu-nb, 1.44v nb, 2000 nb and htt, keeping everything stock or close to stock as I test fsb. Once I get that, I'll go for CPU freq., then shoot for the stars on the nb freq. Temps looking real good tho...

Hey keep that Nb Chipset voltage down below 1.3v. I'm running a C3955 @ 4Ghz, CPUNB @ 3Ghz with 4Gb kit running at 1600 Cas6 and I'm only @ 1.27v on NB Chipset. Start around 1.2v and work up from there. Only add .01v at a time IF absolutely neccessary.... Otherwise leave it alone.

And you should leave the CPU-NB Voltage at Auto until you need extra volts. no sense adding heat. JMO Though.

What do you suggest I set all the pic-e voltages, and the HT Link Voltage, and SB voltage? The last 4-5 voltage options basically... I'm about to try a 208x15 run at cas 7.

BTW, should I expect better fsb OCs with cooler nb and vrms?

1. PCI-e Voltages (i.e. Voltage and I/O Voltage)- I wouldn't touch these unless you are running more than one Video Card and having issues.
2. HT Link Voltage- I have mine running at 1.30v. Stock is 1.20v I have my HT Link set to 2000mhz. but I have found that when running anything over stock speeds in other areas, this helped me.
3. SB Controls your SATA input and output signal. I see that you're running 2 640Gb WD Cav's. If you are running them in Raid and are issues, bump it up a couple of steps. Otherwise, if no speacial HDD setup then leave it at Auto.
4. When running 1600mhz Ram and Above, remember to up the PCU DDR-PHY Voltage up a bit. Where to will vary per system.

@ Crisao23,

Thanks for the update on BIOS. What are you thoughts on whther or not the newer BIOS will be better for a C3 Quad?

I haven't read this thread for about a month, so I'm not sure if its been suggested or not. However, I've found that an unstable video card overclock will also cause the dreaded hypertransport sync flood error.
