400MHz is not bad. I'm thinking you should be able to get at least 500MHz obove stock 3.2GHz for 3700MHz.
I just tried to increase my FSB to 265 once again w/my OCZ SLI DDR800 4x1GB sticks set at DDR800 in the bios and my system would not boot.
So I brought my overclock back down to FSB of 250 multi of 14 for 2500MHz overclock running ram at an even DDR1000. that's a 100MHz overclock on my DDR800 ram sticks which is not the best but then again it's not the worse either. I can run these sticks at DDR1066 speeds from w/in the bios if I leave the FSB at 200.
I don't know what that is all about. I think it has something to do w/the CPU not wanting to strain to make the ram run while overclocked. It could also be my mobo not wanting to clock high FSB spd's. IDK I'm razzled about it. Tator suggested that I reflash my bios or even try to get another bios chip from foxconn.
So far I have not gone as far as to diagnose why I can't go above 265 FSB. I have not tried to lower my ram divider and cpu multi to epicly low spd's to rule out mobo &/or bios problems.
I was having some issues w/my system not wanting to cold boot. I think it was resolved pretty easy though. I was using bios settings from the 8 saved banks and I have the Bios rev: P13 on my back up bios while having the rev: P16 on the main bios. I ran the P13 overclocked to compare it to the P16 and was enterchanging the saved bios files between the two and ended up having a cold boot problem.
I went into the bios and selected all my settings manually and it ended up clearing out the cold boot issue.
I was also not able to wake the system from an S3 sleep state but once I fixed the cold boot issue the S3 Sleep state started working normally again.
I'm running P95 atm to see if I am stable at 3500GHz. If I'm able to pass a few hours at 3500GHz then I will start up up my Multi from 14 to 14.5 and so on.
My cpu volts are at 3.9v atm.Edited by N2Gaming - 10/30/09 at 9:08am
