Get that thing ramped up, and when you find your max, run a Super Pi 1M...

My sandy on water is 3ghz stable 24/7 , with a 1.6v vcore . Ive been able to run below Zero (BuffaloNY) air threw the radiators but it doesnt help my "stable" overclock . Unfortunately i'm using a free Motherboard that came with my video card Hehe, I'm holding off on a DFI expert cause Evga has said there is a "overclocking friendly" Bios on the way . 3ghz is fine for now i guess .

Little bit off topic... but I'm now running at 300 * 10 with a 166 divider, and my RAM running at 1.5-2-2-2... Super Pi time of 27.797! Woo!

It seems like your superpi time could be better. How much RAM do you have, how many modules? When you open SuperPi, go to the task manager, right click on SuperPi and set the priority to Real Time. This will improve your SuperPi Time quite a bit.

2 * 512 BH-5 modules. I think I can push my CPU and RAM higher, it's rock solid at 3 Ghz and 1.475 volts.


And I always put my benchmarks on High.

Did you try running SuperPi as a realtime priority task?
