When you run 8gig of ram your going to have to give them more voltage,also your running your IMC @3ghz,this puts a hell of a strain on the IMC and the ram at the same time.

Dont forget that 790fx chipsets were never designed for hexa core cpu's,so this in itself is putting extra strain on the mobo.

Been busy RE re-oc'ing my rig here... currently 220x15, all stock freq., and stable so far, 8-8-8-24-32 on my 8GB 4x2 Corsair Greenbacks. Yeah, I cant get 1600 at cas 6 Mastiff(boy) but I'm gonna have something. You know I'm just teasing you bro,
- It's all good man! Try Bumping the CPU DDR-PHY some and retest between steps. You have to work your way down with the timings. I didn't just pop in my ram and set those timings and away I went. I really did a alot of reserch and testing. Literally weeks of fine tuning... It takes some time but I think that you'll get em riht where you want them...

These have built in jackets. I like em. Gaurantees me to have cool running memory all of the time. And when I finally get a setup that will run these suckers at their rated speeds, I'll be ready for some real fun at OCing them.

P.S. Can anyone breifly tell me again how to flash to new BIOS from a CD. I've only used the USB method and my stick died on me.

i had this problem when i was running a C2 rev 720, but with the new x6 i can run them at rated speeds or oc'd at rated the voltage, even had success undervolting the ram to 1.6v. using 1b0 bios BTW and tried with all new bios revisions without problems too

So for people who go up to 3ghz NB-CPU, what voltage do you use for your NB-CPU voltage? Currently running it at 2700mhz with my CPU-NB @ 1.25V. Next multiplier is 3ghz, hence my question.

My previous settings would be in the 1.45-1.5V range, but that was also before I lowered everything else and I found out that I was running voltages way too high. (Thanks to Mastiffman! )

I use my 965 C3 at 1.45v for 4GHz and the CPU-NB is at 2800MHz at 1.27v. It pass a 24h+ prime 95 blend test.

Well, I'm using BIOS 1.84b (need to reflash but my USB is dead) and I'm using 1.43v (1.46v in Everst) and I'm running 4Ghz/3ghz 1600 Cas6 24+ Stable.

But you have a C2 so oyu may very well need a bit more than that. The best I can tell you is to start low, First test your CPU @ 4ghz in SmallFFT's P95 mode for 24+ stability. Then test the CPUNB @ 3Ghz with 1.42v in bios. See how long it runs for and keep increasing the voltage, 1 step at a time (.01v) and retest with Blend in between each step, until you are 24+ stable. Make sure that you test the CPU in Small FFT's mode first for 24+ as well as the Ram in Blend at the speed you want it to run with the 3ghz CPUNB. but you will want to run the CPUNB @ 2.6Ghz first (or something you know is competely stable for 24+) when testing the Ram.

Using these 2 steps first, will ensure that both CPU and Ram are stable first so you can take them out of the equation...

P.S. I'm glad to be of service! I'm still unemployee so i feel that I have to contribute somewhere else in life. I like to help people anyway!

Happy OCing!

Hey guys i run cpu-nb @ 3Ghz using 1.32 volts and btw the phenom X6 1090T overclocks way better then my old phenom X4 965 c3 by far with my old 965 i could not even think about getting 4ghz even at 1.56v just couldnt do it. I only tried to get 4ghz in win 7 64bit os though i herd those suck in 64bit os i found out that is true. and btw dude i kno that the chipset i have was not made for my new hexa core but until the asus crosshair iv extreme comes out im staying with the 790fx-gd70.

you must have had a 965 from a bad batch.

I cant hit it at max voltage either. a lot of them max out at 3.9 on air. I can get it to boot at 4008 but not benchmark
