CPU-NB: 2400 MHz
HT: 2400 MHz

Setup Two:
CPU: 18 x 220 = 4050 MHz
Memory: 1800 MHz @ 7-10-8-24 1T
NB: 2700 MHz
HT: 2700 MHz

Setup Three:
CPU: 16 x 250 = 4000 MHz
Memory: 2000 MHz 7-10-8-27 2T
NB: 3000 MHz
HT: 3000 MHz
I like setup 3 personally but i would drop the HT to around 2,000 and see if you can put that into anything else. Do some benches(hyper/super-pi 1mb is not that bad for a very quick test) to be sure. I don't believe that high of a HT with exact same NB is going to be optimal....at least my personal experience benching yielded better results when my HT was closer to my DRAM freq than my NB freq.

Thanks, CP...Will check out what Frozen has to offer. Looks as if I will have to install a copy of Windows to bench. Should have just went with the 1090T and gone 17 x 250. That would have served as a standard OC with mem running at its default speed. In any event, I was not able to OC to Setup Three...

CPU: 17.5 x 236 = 4130 MHz @ 1.5v

CPU-NB: 2830 MHz @ 1.25v
HT Link: 1888 MHz @ 1.25v

Passed Memtest86+. OC still fails. Compiling chromium, gimp and mplayer results in various segmentation faults. Best stable OC so far:

CPU: 17.5 x 235 = 4112 MHz @ 1.5v
Memory: 1880 MHz @ 7-9-7-20 1T @ 1.65v
CPU-NB: 2820 MHz @ 1.25v
HT Link: 1880 MHz @ 1.25v

So is it worth pairing that new Phenom 2 x4 970 with the Crosshair IV or rather go straight 6core, will mainly be using it for gaming and thats about it. if i do overclock i will try get a stable 4ghz and leave it at that otherwise 3.8 or even stock is fine for me. what you guys think?

That would depend on the game or application that you are going to be using primarily. If the application/game is wrote for multiple threads then the x6 would be a better choice, but if the application/game is single threaded then I would look at less cores but a higher freq CPU.

It appears as if my setup prefers tight memory timings over higher clock frequencies. The most stable OC (able to compile anything I throw at it with MAKEFLAGS="-j4") has been:

CPU: 20.5 x 200 = 4100 MHz @ 1.5v
Memory: 1600 MHz @ 6-8-6-18 1T @ 1.65v
CPU-NB: 2600 MHz @ 1.25v
HT Link: 2000 MHz @ 1.25v

Memory @ 1880 @ 7-9-7-20 @ 1.65v will pass Memtest86+, but a number of apps compile with various errors. So accept 1600 MHz @ 6-8-6-18 1T @ 1.65v, or continue to try to find a stable high clock? Perhaps a memory module airflow cooler is the way to go...

Update:

The following appears to be stable:

CPU: 21 x 200 = 4200 MHz @ 1.5v
Memory: 1600 MHz @ 6-8-6-18 1T @ 1.65v
CPU-NB: 2600 MHz @ 1.25v
HT Link: 2000 MHz @ 1.25v

You can add your system specs in the user control panel (cp), on the left panel click on "edit system", and fill in your specs.

So sad, but true. Intel really has a one up on amd, especially native sli. I hope I'll be making the switch soon, though why not the Extreme?
