945 can do much more but fsb is the only way to overclock it so the installed ram has to be capable
and the heatsinks have to be up to the job of course.
3.6 is easy by 240 fsb.
up the volts to cpu a bit,mine took 1.3v to be stable,
drop the ram divider one notch
and the ht mutiplier to x9 instead of x10 and try benching,
it should be rock solid.
i have seen 4.2 ghz on the 945,but can only get 4.1 stable with mine.
the HT Link on mine can do quite well stably too,this is more important thean the cpu overclock as it is something you notice,
theres little to no perceptible lag as the bandwidth is increased by increasing the HT link,
i aimed for 3000 as it seems to be a sweet spot but overshot it slightly and got 38xx,
theres little noticeable difference with such a high ht link though so 3000 +/- would be good and of course isnt stressing the cpu so hardEdited by MightyMission - 3/24/11 at 3:12am
