possible better oc? (955 BE)

Thread Starter 
Everything i have so far is in the attached pics, very stable oc from what i've seen but i can't seem to increase anything (even when i increase voltage) without getting BSOD's.

Keep cranking up that northbridge speed! I noticed a large difference going from about 2200mhz to 2900mhz. The computer was much more responsive to loading programs and stuff like that. Plus my 3dmark scores improved aswell. Try to keep under 1.4v for the nb voltage. And keep that sucker cool! AM3 rigs really heat up the nb so make sure it doesn't go over about 55 under load. Hope that helps. PM if you need specific questions answered!

What's your last 5 digits of the serial number of the 955? Will be on the box also

I'd try for 4.0 GHz ish by upping the bus speed to 222 or 223 with the nb at 2600-2800
Once that's stable try tightening your ram timings to maybe CL7
