Sin: I used your guide as my primary source and I thank you for it. It was a tremendous help.

The only part that I decided to change and test was that I did not disable all of the power savers like EIST and C1E, etc. I know you and some others say it might make the OC unstable but I thought I would give it a try because my computer is on a lot (though not usually overnight) and I don't know how much energy it saves but I thought why not save if I can. Also, people using the ASUS boards I think had to keep these enabled from what I remember reading so I thought perhaps it is OK.

I also read about some having success with lowering PLL to 1.76v. You may have seen that thread. You mentioned to keep it at stock so I never did try any changes. I am not sure if I did lower PLL if I could then use lower Vcore as some in that thread noticed.

I did try some changes to QPI and DRAM Voltage when I tried to OC my RAM but then the BIOS would always give me OC error messages so I gave up OC my RAM. It still confuses me why my OC RAM passed Memtest+ but then failed in P95. I wonder what explanation there is for that. Something that happens when the CPU, motherboard and RAM work together?

Anyway, I am happy right now and I thank you for all you have done.

there are very weird RAm problems going on with hyper based RAM, it is Cpu to CPu dependent and I was asked to test it out because I have two CPUs, but i don't have hyper RAm, but I just got in a 2133mhz kit of dominator, but they aren't hyper.

If you've got any kind of power conservation going on then it's likely that when you start stressing to the limit every component you will reach the point in which the mobo isn't properly feeding the components. Also, when you take into account interactions between them then it sounds like a RAM timing or voltage issue. But I have heard people saying that P95 wasn't working properly with Sandy Bridge; doesn't make sense to me but it's out there.

I noticed that on Guru3d (you can judge for yourself whether it's reliable) that to get the best OC's with SB they were raising the TDP limits of their boards to 200+.
