I noticed that you have a UD4 motherboard. A friend of mine uploaded this overclocking tutorial on youtube a while back. His setup is nearly identical to yours.

Hope this helps.
i know to run at rated speeds but is this timing sustainable over time and will it wear down my memory alot?

i have g.skill 2000mhz 9-9-9-27 running @ 1448 mhz 6-6-6-20

It won't really wear down. Why would you want them running at slower speeds?

lower timings make RAM run faster, as for speeds only 552mhz slower for a better timing is worth it

wow only 1.275v for 200x20, thats a golden chip like urs prolly

most i7 860 chips need at least 1.3v let alone under it...

infact on the 4.0ghz page i see i7 860 chips need between 1.32-1.39v

thanks.

Running at lower timings is only beneficial in memory tests such as superpi and so fourth. In games there is really no difference. I see no reason as to while you would run at insanely slower speeds than what they are originally rated at.

Overclocking a processor is a wonderful, strange, unique artful experience.

No two are exactly alike, and you'll get wildly different results.

I don't see where you mention what errors you get while stress testing under 1.3v?

I aslo don't see you mention what software you're using to stress test?

lol you didnt read my previous posts did you?

- my comp wont boot under 1.3v @ 3.8ghz
- i used prime95 and OCCT, realtemp to monitor

im not a hardcore gamer first of all, i dont run two 5870s

im looking for performance as this is my first full system overclock since ages..

i might increase my memory freq. and change my timings

ie. 1810mhz 8-8-8-X

So to clarify... It doesn't give you an error.

Example...

You put voltage to 1.28, and the computer is endless boot loop? Will it get into windows?

Those 80+ degree temps are using prime95 or occt?

It's easiest to help you, when you make small incramental changes. Keep the memory as it is, until you've reached the OC you're looking for.

dude have you read any of my posts??

im saying that ive hit the "thermal" limit of my cpu, i dont want to go any higher. on the last page or so i stated all my trials when i was reaching 3.8ghz.

for the temps they were on prime95, OCCT testing was after i used prime95...

im trying 1.275v now...OCCT 1hr sucessful

yeah i think i can run it a 1.275v but QPI i can run it at any volts lol...
