Do you mean change of how high it can go, while still being stable? I'm able to reach 300 still if that's what you're asking, but I don't really like the newest bios, since it would make me crash even with just a 3.8ghz OC, NB @ 2000-2600mhz, regardless of what FSB/HT Ref Clock freq. I really like 1.9, so I might just keep using it.

Edit: Do you guys know if the overclocking ability of CPUs goes down the longer you overclock it? I can't seem to get 4.0ghz stable at all, even if I use 1.6v. I'm trying to test it with just the CPU @ 4ghz, while the NB is at it's stock 2000mhz, RAM is at 1333mhz.

Hi mate,

So your saying it won't be the mobo it will be the gpu?

cpu's degrade over time even if your not overclocking. generally it means its coming to an end when you have to start giving it more voltage for the same overclock you ran for months.

I was trying to say that my HT Ref CLk fo 200.0 is now starting to fluctuate from that down to 198.4Mhz to 200.3. This has never happened before on this board. I wasn't sure if it was because fo the BIOS or maybe Board Degradation.....

If you play games and you hear squealing noise, it might be your GPU's capacitors going bad. One way to reduce the noise is to turn on vsync, especially if you're getting an FPS over your monitor's refresh rate (60FPS+).

I kind of understand it now. So it means regardless of what I do, my cpu will just degrade faster if I overclock it?

Also, I've had my HT Ref Clock Freq fluctuating about +/- 0.5 mhz ever since I've built my rig. I did notice that when going to higher overclocks and stressing my CPU, the HT ref clock freq does fluctuate much more (say like 197.6mhz-200.4mhz)

i used 1.7 for my 965 because it allowed me to use the least amount of voltage for 4.0ghz and im using 1D for the 1075T. i havent tried any others with the 6 core yet. im not too happy with these since i cant adjust all RAM timings. (tRAS). i would upgrade to at least 1.7 if i were you.

im currently using 1.8 on my personal rig, but saw 1.9 was out. He is using a
C2 stepping 955 if that makes a difference.

I have a few questions, sorry ahead of time if I sound like a newbie, I'm just a little confused lol..

I'm in the market for different ram. I'm really sick and tired of Mushkin Blackline, I've had nothing but trouble with the sticks. I have to run 1.9V at 1333MHz just to be stable.

My plan was to buy higher performance ram rated for DDR3-2000 or 2133 and just underclock the ram so I can get much lower timings than ram rated for DDR3-1333 or 1600. Do you guys think that is a smart idea and do able with my setup?

Also someone told me that if I am running 2600MHz HT that I will see no benefit with ram running faster than DDR3-1600. Would I see a benefit with ram running at 1800 or 2000 or higher? Or should I just stick to 1600 with tight timings?
