All set. Working well so far. What would be the next thing that sticks out to you with 4.0 in mind? I will accept the current speed if it is the best I can get with my setup, but 4.0 just seems fantastic.

It's kinda up to you now to play around with your CPU frequency and CPU voltage, assuming that NB and RAM are stable.

If you can't get it to post at 4Ghz+ whilst running RAM at 1066 I'm not sure how you will get there to be honest.

Have you tried 1.5 CPU voltage?
Go for 290 CPU frequency (4060mhz)

(Only go for this if your temps are still quite low at 1.475 CPU Voltage)

Everything I tried at 1.5 CPU voltage wouldn't post.

I haven't been able to get 286 CPU frequency to work yet...290 seems like a definite no go.

There is nothing else I should be changing at this point besides my cpu frequency? If not I may have found my limit just short of my goal. :/

To see a nice performance increase a higher NB frequency would benefit you more than getting to 4Ghz IMO.

Graphics are controlled by the NB (correct me if i'm wrong people!)

the higher the NB frequency the better in games etc, I found i had less glitches and more consistent framerates once NB around 2400Mhz+,

2800-3000 would be ideal.

Try one/two increase on your NB multiplier,
prime 95 blend it,
add slightly to CPU NB voltage, keeping safe and low.

another series of tests to keep you busy, lol.

I can try that but this is just a media center. I am admittedly going after the 4Ghz just for the sake of doing it.

Any suggestions for a good starting point for the Ram settings? I haven't touched any ram settings ever.
when working with the CPU frequency(FSB/CPU REF) you also need to up the NB voltage.

I am taking about the voltage marked NB Voltage and not the Voltage called CPU/NB.
What you are seeing is an instability due to the CPU frequency being changed and not having the voltage increased with it.

Are you suggesting that by upping the NB Voltage I can raise the CPU REF higher?

What do you suggest for safe voltages to try for the NB?

I see. basically any OC'd PC will benefit from NB overclock though because it also controls your RAM, it's up to you though.

Maybe your chip needs 1.5125-1.5250 CPU Voltage to get over 4Ghz?

keep a really close eye on temps

bit risky though, you could try it though just to see if it works,

check idle temps, run PRIME95 BLENDS, if it goes over 50 in the first tests forget it and drop the voltage back.

If you are confident it'll be okay let it keep going until it hits the CPU intensive tests 8k,10k etc keeping real close eye on temps when it gets to these.

good luck be careful if you do it!

good point that should be up at 1.3 - 1.4Max

Thanks. I'm learning more from this one thread in a day than I've managed to learn in weeks trying to read without actually doing it at the same time.

I'd like to save going over 1.5v but the thing is my temps seem TOO good to be true. The highest recorded on Core temp was 31 C. I never did any stress testing though that's just in it's typical media center use.

Any thoughts about those temps? I do have the H-50 which I understood would be about as good as a high end air cooler but I enjoy it since it's much quieter and it gave me an easy way to learn the basics of watercooling. I also did not want to do any maintenance on the cooling system at all. Next build I would consider doing a "real" watercooling setup, but honestly I am so impressed with the H-50 overall that I am not sure why I'd bother.
