FYI, the ht link and nb freq also use the ref clock and their own multi.eg.(290x7=2030)
So 2030 is fine,we just want them close to stock speed for now.Stock is 2000mhz.We will oc nb freq later.

Might have some Kingston ram that I could switch out from another computer. I think the Kingston could handle a little overclocking.

x2 is fine then.as we start to increase the cpu multi we may have back off the ref clock a little which will lower the ram freq,so by the time we finish you may get the ram to run at 2.66.

Okay at 2x ram, 2030 ht and nb, 290 ref clock, it is stable. I am going to start upping the cpu multi by x0.5.

For each step, I blend tested on Prime for 10 minutes. I got all the way up to 12. 12.5 gave me a BSOD after 3-5 minutes on Prime blend test. The CPU speed at 12.5 was 3625 MHz. At 12, the CPU speed was at 3480 MHz (stable for 10 minutes on Prime 95 blend test). What should I do next?

Drop the ref clock to 285 and try 12.5 again.If it fails drop to 280 x 12.5.
If that passes,drop to 275 and 13 and so on.
Make it so each adjustment gives about a 50 mhz increase in the cpu freq,until you hit a wall.
As you raise the multi we can make finer adjustments to cpu freq with the ref clock.

Looking good so far,keep up the good work.

Okay 12.5 worked at 285. Then tested 13 at 280, no dice. 275 seemed to work. Then 13.5, I had to take the ref clock down to 265. All of these were found unstable through BSODs. I'm currently sitting on this which is stable for about 10 mins on Prime 95 blend test. What's next?

If 13.5x265 passes 10 min of prime,run a longer test at this clock.
If it fails later in the test bump cpu volts 1 notch and test again.

Gyro

edit; also post your cpu temps at these higher clocks. thanks

13.5 multi at 265 ref clock I believe BSOD'd because my computer restarted while I was sleeping. Testing 13.5 and 265 with one notch of extra voltage. Also if I'm looking at the right temp, I'm averaging around 40, give 1-2. This morning though it was 68c and with the new overclock (more voltage), I was averaging 30c.

Also ^^^^^ What's wrong with your mobo?
