Stable and couple hours into prime here is what I have (prime still running) Does it look ok? I cant drop Vcore anymore without bsod awhile into prime.

These are my volts:
+3.3 = 3.31V
Vcore = 1.34-1.35
Dram = 1.63-1.65
Cpu Vtt = 1.29-1.30
NB core = 1.10
+5 = 4.88
+12 = 12.11
VSVB3 = 3.26
Vbat = 3.17

These are temps:
Thrm = 61C
CPU = 61C
core1 = 74C
core2 = 74C
core3 = 71C
core4 = 71C
Vreg = 60C
System = 31C

Memory -
DDR3 Tripple 6144 NB Freq. 3192.0mhz
Dram freq. = 798.0mhz
FSB:Dram = 2:8
CL = 11.0 Clocks
tRCD = 11 clocks
tRP = 11 clocks
tRAS = 29 clocks
tRFC = 88 clocks
CR = 1T

Wow You are doing pretty well with this OC. I've been trying to successfully overclock my 950 for a few months now. I have been following this forum for quite some time but I have not actually posted to get some help. Good luck on your OC!

Honest to god what helped me the most was this! I stole alot of his settings since he has the same board and CPU but then tweaked alot of them for the last 24 hours or so lol. Lots of BSODS restart fix and try again until I got it were it is now. But helped alot as a base to get me started since I had no clue what I was doing lol. So big ups to this youtube poster!!!!!

[ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mh4EHP_BqUc[/ame]

Between that and google to learn what the settings mean I have pretty much exhausted myself and turned it into an obsession lol.....

Well I used to be able to overclock the older P4 chips, and the generations before i7 like the Core 2 Quads easily but a lot of these settings especially the EVGA terms are different. Maybe I can PM ya or something if I need help or if you got MSN messenger?

I can try to help but really your best bet would be asking other members on here. I am still very very very new and this is all trial and error for me as well.

Other news for some reason worker 8 started failing non stop after a couple hours on Prime. I just upped my Vcore again. I dont know if its that or from switching my ram timmings from 9-9-9-24 to 8-8-8-20 code was saying (illegal sumout) possibl harware failure.

Whats your default ram timing?

If you were stable and then the change to the lower cas timings gave an error it could be the culprit...

Although that particualr error from Prime is general, it doesnt mean an exact setting failed.

Then if your going to try tighter timing do one at a time and work your way through..
Make sure your 100% stable before doing it...
then

8-9-9-24 test
8-8-9-24 test

etc... Although the real world benefit from 9-9-9-24 to 8-8-8-20 would probably not be noticed.. Maybe help slightly in a benchmark, but thats about it...
