When I go to increase the voltage to support the changes I've made to the Northbridge and HT Link speed, I am having errors when I run prime95. Also the temps are getting a little higher than I would like. Attached is what I have everything set at for the moment. Any help would be awesome. Thanks!

Volts are WAY high! put the VDD back to auto as that is the Vid and can ruin/burn your CPU quickly!
Dont OC the HT it will decrease the performance smile.gif

What type of throughput are you getting with the ram there? I was personally shooting for as much throughput as possible which made me use a lower core speed then what I could be running.

As for the ram timing. What all have you done to try and stabilize it?
Cas 5 at around 1333mhz doesn't boot for me either.

For throughput what do you use to test it? I'm not really shooting for anything, but I am looking to see where I can push my system.

I've gone as high as 1752mhz with my 7-7-7-20-27-1T timings, but it's not memtest stable, although it is stable enough when using casual apps/gaming. I probably have to loosen some timings to get this stable.

As for the stabilizing question, I've increased voltage from my stock 1.95v up to 2.05v (it's crazy high for DDR3, but my RAM likes high voltage it seems) and have tried increasing the RAS to CAS timing to something like 6-8-7-24-30-1T.

On a side note my bios got reset by accident a while ago so I had to re-OC. Kinda sucked but it was fun to try to get a higher OC. Ended up just getting as far as I did before.
You could save your BIOS setting up to 4. I myself have setting for:
1. 2.8GHz
2. 3.4GHz
3. 3.6GHz
4. 3.7GHz
And I just load the setting I need whenever I want. Currently running at 3.4Ghz setting with my unlocked 720BE.

I use maxxmem2 for throughput testing.
What I did to find how low I could go with timings was to just start dropping my Cas untill I could not go lower then worked on the next and so forth Lots of testing lots of time.

Oh man I just had this long post I was about to post, but I accidentally refreshed.

These voltages are way too high and remind me of when I started overclocking. Here are some recommended settings and voltages for you.

Settings:
-Increase CPU-NB ratio to at least x10 (This makes your L3 cache speed faster and also increases RAM read/writing speeds)
-Increase HT Link Freq. to as close to 2000mhz as possible.

Voltages:
CPU VDD Voltage: Auto
CPU-NB VDD Voltage: Auto
CPU Voltage: 1.5v max (any higher and your VRMs are in danger of dying any day, like mine did , you might have to lower your CPU overclocks due to lower voltage)
CPU-NB Voltage: 1.35v-1.4v (You don't need such a high voltage until you reach around 2700-2800mhz for your CPU-NB)
CPU PLL Voltage: 2.55v-2.6v (Any higher is really just extra heat)
NB Voltage: Auto or up to 1.25v (I leave mine at 1.2v)
HT Link Voltage: Auto or 1.3v
SB Voltage: Since you do have multiple HDDs, it's fine to increase voltage from Auto

Thanks for the link, I shall try it out when I have the time!

With my normal settings, (4ghz, NB 2800mhz, 1600mhz 7-7-7-20-1T RAM) I get:


This is with many apps open though, so it would probably be better to test with almost nothing open right?

I see there is now the 1.H Bios Version. I am still at 1.9 but hesitant to update since most BIOS update notes only indicates "update cpu agesa code" except for 1.F that says
"- Update memory module.
- Improved system compatibility".

Are these enough reasons to update my BIOS?

I am not afraid about the procedure since I have updated BIOS several times but I have forgotten how it was whether updating the BIOS will clear all my OC and BIOS setting or worse, corrupt my OS. Can you refresh my memory, please...

Cant corrupt your OS because you should be flashing in the bios.
Write down your setting before hand
I would do it.

Oh, I do remember one thing. I know that BIOS say that when the CPU multiplier is changed, the Cool & Quiet does not work. But what I notice is that if you do a fresh install of the OS on an OC setting, the cool & Quiet works until you change the CPU multiplier again. Once the CPU setting is changed, the Cool & Quiet will no longer work even if you restore everything to the exact same setting ( loading the saved setting in the BIOS ).

Anybody have a different experience?

It's different for different BIOS versions is what I came to conclude. With the 1.G BIOS, I can change my FSB and multipliers to what I want, and it will still work. It works with 200x20, 219x18.5, 250x16 for me.
