I've been spreading the word on that w/re, to the Optys but the more I read the more I'm convinced that the 939 in general don't need to be force fed high volts!

Did you just call me Red? I'm Remonster not Redmonster lol!

What are your RAM timings and voltages? Also raise your HT multiplier to X4. You want to be as close to 1000 as you can get.

I would leave it at X3, there is no point raising it to X4 since all that will do is decrease stability and offer no performance gain, my brother's computer, when it was 250FSB, still had an X3 multi even though X4 would put it right at 1000MHz.

It wont have any performance gain as we both know, but the closer your HT is to 1000 the more stable it is. For example 1100 is better than 700. And why do you keep talking about your brother? lol.

No, closeness to 1000 has nothing to do with stability, being UNDER 1000 makes it more stable, and I never noticed I said my brother that often, but it was in the context of his computer so it made sense. Anyways, 700 is better than 1100 and personally I would just have it at X2 or X1 even, there is 0 point in even having your HTT anything above 200. However, once you have found your max OC I would try and raise it to X2 and X3 and see if it's stable and if it is, it wouldn't hurt to have it at X3.

Haha, you guys are funny

My timings right now are 2.5-3-3-5-T/1. I have tried T/2 and it is stable at both with my current settings. However, switching to T/2 hasn't helped in my quest to get a higher OC. I can run 2-2-2-5-T/1 up to a point (i forget what that point is, I will have to double check), but it fails to boot once I get up in the 230x11 range.

As far as RAM voltages, I am at 2.8v which is the max in the range recommended for the RAM. My board will allow me to up that to 3.0v. I have tried this also, and seems to make no difference making higher OC attempts stable.

The other two voltage settings are my HT (1.2 and 1.25) and Chipset (1.5 and 1.6). I have tried max settings on all when trying to break that 230x11 barrier, but to no avail. Actually where I am at right now with 230x11, I can keep those both on the minimum setting and achieve stability. I may also be able to lower the RAM below 2.8v and still be stable, but I am not quite sure.

Right now I am at HTx3. I will try X2 and X1 to see if that helps at all.

Thanks guys for sticking with me!
