well first off your HTT times your HTT multi should never be over 1000, so that could cause problems. as for the changing multi, did you disable cool&quiet in bios? what about thermal throttling? those could do that.

so no matter what you set the HTT to it stays a 193.7? also was cool&quiet enabled (was that the problem?) you might have a weird divider set up somehow, also what speed ram do you have? have you locked your PCI/PCI-e speeds yet? are you getting errors yet or are you still stable at this point?

well your temps are good, and i know of people that got theirs up to 2.8 or so, so yea you can go farther. what speed is your ram RATED at? see if you can get it to run at close to what its supposed to run at, you'll get better performance out of your system. (just mess with the dividers to get it right) just keep plugging along and you'll get higher. i g2g to bed, finals are tommorow. good luck, and post any questions that you have along the way.
