took me a while,,
but what you need is 1.4+ VCore, RAM to be rock solid, and 1.375 QPI.. upwards 1.4 PCH..
What is the highest bclk your CPU posted @? mine goes about 234 before it stops posting.. (does it work @ 200, that could be a good indicator for hope )
also dude, got a steam account? I' think i've got overclocking this chip from top to bottom down! i could help you out easier via steam
I'm trying to get stable with my OC @ 4.2 ghz but it looks like i need to push my Vcore well beyond 1.5v
May i just got a bad chip
