My goal is to get the reference clock up to 240Mhz so that my memory is back at 1600Mhz. 250Mhz with any luck.
Silentphantom250, have you tested your motherboards max HT Clock speed? Some of these AM3 motherboards are not capable of running such high HT Clock speeds as their K8 counterparts. However the 790FX series does seem to do quite well.

Good luck

finished all 6 major benchmarks with this cpu and im very impressed. especially with its spi times the chips gone now but Ive got a 435 coming my way soon. http://hwbot.org/hardware/processor/...ll%20of%20fame was running it at 4.0 the whole time i had it with just 1.45 volts great little gaming chip. it played mw2 and l4d2 very well even at stock settings. only 5fps in l4d2 off my 965c3 which is very impressive for the cheapest athlon on the market.

well that's my mini review

That was the first thing I tested. I was able to push it as high as 280, which is where I stopped because I don't need it that high.

One thing I have noticed with my setup is that my ram dislikes the CPU-NB going below 2000Mhz, so I'm going to bump it up a little to see if that makes a difference.

I'm starting to think I should've gotten the 240 instead of the 245.

Silentphantom250, I've also noticed that overclocking the NB Frequency can sometimes help with the processor OC as well

Ummm ... Can't find an option in the bios to change that.

Only the HT width 4,8, 16bits.

Any ideas ?

So are the CPU-NB and NB frequency the same thing? The only two options I see in my bios are CPU-NB frequency and HT frequency.

JonnyFive, I'm looking through your manual right now and I don't see an option for changing the HT Link speed. Perhaps this is not available in your bios

Silentphantom250, some motherboards have it listed differently. The CPU-NB is for your NB Frequency. The CPU-NB Voltage also controls the voltage for the NB Frequency. "NB Frequency" may be for reference clock speed (HT Clock ie. 200Mhz).

Good luck

For the voltages I have two options for the NB...I think. There's one option that's called "CPU-NB VID Control" which allows me to step the voltage either up or down in increments of 50mV. I have no idea what VID means. Then there's another option that's called "NB Voltage Control" which allows me to only step up the voltage in 100mv increments, up to 1.5V. This one describes it as controling the voltage of the FSB between the CPU and the NB. From what I've been reading it's the CPU-NB voltage I should be raising, not the NB voltage.

I tried something before I left for classes today. I set the HT clock to 222Mhz, the CPU-NB to 1998Mhz, and the HT to 1998Mhz as well. Prime95 ran for two hours before failing. I then set the HT clock to 223Mhz, with the CPU-NB and HT at 2007Mhz. With no voltage change whatsoever Prime95 has been running for more than 5 hours and is still going. Seems like my motherboard is a very fickle thing.

Silentphantom250, just remember this:

CPU-NB VID = NB Frequency (ie. 2000Mhz). This is on your CPU
NB Voltage Control = HT Clock speed (ie. 200Mhz). This is on the motherboard itself

That is good news. As previously stated, sometimes overclocking the actual NB Frequency can help with the cpu overclock. It is also wise to keep your Hypertransport (HT Link) at it's stock speed of 2000Mhz.

Good luck
