As for your RAM, try lowering the timings. They are at 9-9-9-24 now correct? Try 8-9-8-24. Then 8-8-8-24. If neither of those work, try 7-9-7-24

I have to use the latter otherwise my RAM is unstable. Use an overnight memtest86+ boot CD to verify stability.

Look on your RAM chips, check for the version. Like 1.2, 5.6 etc etc. And post what yours are here. Helps determine what IC's they are and how many volts you can pump through them

Use this for a reference:

For example, micron chips will eat voltage for breakfast, but ask others about that, I only know what I have been told.

These are probably Micron chips judging by 1.8V voltage requirement.

That is the same ram that I destroyed trying to take off those monstrous heatsinks. I never liked it and could only get it to run at 9-9-9-27 at best. 9-9-9-24 would not even POST. I also used to get BSODs. Replaced it with Crucial ram and I now run it at 8-8-8-24 at 1.65V. Much better stuff.

That Hyper 212 Plus is a good cooler for sure.

so I'm at 3.7ghz at the moment and the hyper 212+ is a brill cooler.
I was playing in bios to see what I could get it to and seems I can't go past 3.7

I should be happy with a 3.7 quadcore from a 3.1 dualcore I suppose lol

I tried raising NB, but I'm not clued up enough to know if I need to raise something else with it.

So, if I have hit a wall at 3.7 with 1.425v can I pass it by doing something else?
my NB is default 2000 but when I raise it I get a bootfail message and tells me to go back to bios and sort it basicly. Do I have to raise v of NB too? what to? is my mobo good enough? (I'm sure it was the top model when I bought it?)

also, I have never changed a timing for ram, but why is cpu-z saying it's running crapper than spec?

all I have changed in BIOS is to get it running as DDR3 1600

Timings should be set manually to 9-9-9 @ rated voltage

Not got a clue about timings, I'll check the version soon though. Thanks
I'm running an N520 with my B55. Had it @ 3.8ghz until MoBo gave out. It's a good quality heatsink, look into either that or the Hyper 212+
