18k is my regular score of stock 5770 & flat 4.00ghz 2.6nb .. or less i cant remember, I'll run it again in a bit
Yeap. Mine is 216 version but unfortunately I can't unlock voltage control in MSI Afterburner
Didn't know about that buying this card a year ago.
Maybe a silly question but could anyone explain to me what does a "reference card" mean? Is it a card that is supported by MSI Afterburner and has "a proper" VRM ? I am a total noob in this matter.

You've got almost the same model of memory as I have but I think yours are 1.5V model and mine are 1.9 V.
First of all try to overclock it only increasing multiplier. If you overclock your CPU by increasing your FSB it requires much more voltage to make it run stable (I think so but it might not be true
So try these settings:
FSB = 200
Multiplier = x20
NB Freq = 2800
Multi = x14
Ht link (and this is very important) = 2000 (lower it - I run mine max up to 2100 but I try not to cross this limit)
HT link multi = x10
CPU VDD = Auto
CPU NB VDD = Auto
CPU V = 1.38 V (should be enough to run it stable)
CPU NB V = 1.22 V (if it is not stable try to rise it up by 0.01 V )
DDR PHY = 1.25 V
DRAM V = 1.7 V (be careful with that because that's the setting for my ram modules. Yours might be much lower. Could you send a link to yours memory sticks manufacturer's page?)
NB V = 1.16 V should be just fine (if not try to increase it but not too much. to 1.2 V) (BTW! What are you North Bridge temperatures?)
Everything else to auto. And make sure you had disabled C'n'Q option and Spread Spectrum. (It may be obvious but - you never know
One more thing - set in your Windows 7 power options - max performance.
And be careful with those settings - it's just an example how it works at my rig.
One more thing 2:
Try to losen your timings like 8-8-8-24-32

I have noticed it. I don't know why but it's so high and I got CPU VDD V set to Auto but I can set it to 1.15 V and CPU V to 1.31 and it just means nothing. The only thing is it allows me to regulate my main CPU V in small increments like 0.01 V and not 0.02 V with this option set to auto.
Because it may be 2000 ?
(yeah I know it is a dumb explanation
You've got Corsair Dominator right? What model is this excactly ? Any link ?

Try the most recent one v 1.16 In my opinion it's the most "stable" and improved BIOS for this mobo. But it's only my opinion

I TRY to cheat with things like disabling LAN controller so nothin in background can access net and cause lower score. I OC everything to max stable. My 5870 is at 1ghz core/1200 mem, uh... bout it, lol
Free 3DMark06 doesn't give score, but there are ways to get it still.
What do you mean that "Free 3DMark06 doesn't give score" ? What version of 3DMark06 you've got?

here some ss my setup
Have you tried to overclock your cpu using only multiplier and not increasing your FSB rate? Oh! I have just noticed... Is your 955 Phenom a Black Edition or non BE ?
