That is a fairly good overclock for stock voltage. If you want, you can bump it up to 1.55v and see if you can go further on all of the values, esp. that middle night... then the same thing for 1.6v.... I wouldn't go above 1.65-1.7v on that RAM though especially if case airflow isn't very good.
: Try bumping the "NB" voltage value up from 1.1 to 1.2v if it's not there already. CPU-NB voltage may need more than the stock 1.15v to operate stable even at all-stock frequencies. I needed 1.225v on mine at stock everything.
SuperPi results can vary by the way. There is a 5th value (the tRC) you should pay attention and normally it should be the tRP + tRAS (i.e. 6-8-6-20, 6+20 = tRC of 26. By default it's set to 40 on mine). I get better results with the tRC set to 24 rather than 26 in benchmarks. The tRC behaves in much the same way as the tRAS value by the way; lower that if you can.Edited by xd_1771 - 8/12/10 at 7:11pm
