ok guys i set my ram timing to what the ram says im at 1.65v 8-8-8-24 at 1600 what is the best test to make sure this is stable? then im off to start on my cpu

I will tell you this, I was unable to get 4.0 completely stable. Even with it under my water cooling loop. I was able to run it @ 4.2 for benching (very short benching) but just could not get 4.0 24hr stable.(which is a must for me!) IIRC I noticed that if my core temp hit 52* it would BSOD. I could not give it enough voltage to be stable and still keep it under 52* on the core.

max safe voltage is anything below 1.7 as long as you watch the temps although I don't think you will be able to use even 1.6 with your cooler.

Things to try:
*CPU-PLL voltage there is a range that can't help I can remember the first digit but it was between X.5 and X.8 volts IIRC.

*Lower your ram speed

*CPU-NB voltage and speed and help you achieve a higher core overclock as well

*NB and SB voltage can also help although if you try adding .5 and it does not it will not.

*Make you chip run cooler!

*try less voltage(goes with keeping the core temp down)

memtest 86+ is one way. Let it do passes overnight! you want to run about 10. Another way is to use Prime 95 Custom and make it use more memory ~3000MB and do 3 min passes. Also let this run overnight.

Last but not least is intel burn test on all for 50 passes

pendrago: Black editions are not needed for this board and X6's it will do 300+ FSB which is more then is needed for some hefty overclocks.

Yep i have 955 C2 and i can manage 3850CPU / 2700NB fully stable and 3950 for test likes CB R11.5 etc, superpi arround 4300.

Finaly now i have 1100T and 4GHz/3000NB is not problem with voltages 1.38 for CPU and 1.25 for NB - its totally different lague.

24/7 that im using now it: (iddle 30/ load 55)
CPU : 4060 @ 1.440V
NB : 3015 @ 1.280V
RAM : 1856 @ 1.65V 7-9-6-16 28 1T
Its fully stable at LinX_64 + Prime95_64

Max stable clock is arround 4150-4170Mhz, but needs bump of voltage to 1.48-1.5V

Some HWbot attempts:
1st SuperPI 32M on AIR: http://www.hwbot.org/community/submi...in_11sec_422ms
validation: http://www.hwbot.org/community/submi...be_4746.96_mhz
wprime: http://www.hwbot.org/community/submi..._be_5sec_656ms

I will keep pushing it ...

Yes, I know but you see I want my multiplier to be unlocked
There is some limitation (in my case) and it's memory sticks which will go no further than 1700 MHz :/
That's why I want to have BE to use all of features that MSI 790FX MOBO gives (hope my explanation wasn't too chaotic )

My ram stinks, my limit is 1333 6-6-6-15-T1 at 1.75v


I tried lowering to cas5 and it would not even post properly(it just reboots like crazy on the post screen) - had to reset cmos to get back in LOL

At least its better than its rated Cas9... now I want new ram sticks

Not bad at all. Try to set timings to 7-9-7 or 6-9-6 and try to reach higher frequency. I have no luck with my rated 2000MHz 6-9-6 sticks, with first CL parameter. I must run it 7-9-6 at 1856Mhz with 6-9-6 even on 1333 it will not post - so this mobo doesn like this sticks at this way. But in comparation of other sticks - its very good ratio between speeds and timings.

Other mobo for bulldozer will be some ASUS crosshair (CIV can run this sticks at 2200 7-10-7). GD70 have limitations arround 1880Mhz, cause 790FX chipset.

Anyaway, my "everest"

I said Max as in I can't even clock the ram higher speeds either
Not even 1400 same voltage then tested at 1.85v.. on both my OS freezes in a few seconds in(that is with timings on auto - which would be cas9), I've even upped it to 1.95v and it would only last around 20 minutes or so.. in other words Its obviously better for me to stick at 1333 1.75v... its originally rated at 1.5v but for some reason on 3 boards I've used them its always needed between 1.72 - 1.75v to even have them stable on 1333

So that's my limit on my stinky un-branded ram

Hmm, and sticks are rated 1333? If yes, you can be glad to use 1333 at 6-6-6. But i dont like settings like auto, especialy with rams, sometimes it brick some values and dont post or you can get errors, so you can try set 9-9-9-27 42 manually, if the speeds will be same - its obvios that is the limit for rams.
