Due to the summer heat, temps have gone up a little; but not enough to cause problems. Still running below 45C under fairly high load.
dude I have to admit that the chip works allot better on this sabertooth but she will be going right back on this board as soon as Bully dont zer comes to town, I still have most settings in my head for this board if you need some help but if memory serves you were on air right?

Not entirely. CPU is on water; everything else is on air. My CPU voltage is set to 1.50 to compensate for the vdroop. Can't recall my other stats right now, since I'm at work. Regardless of how high I set my CPU/NB/etc. voltage, 3.8 seems to be about the ceiling. Anything higher and it goes unstable eventually. May be a NB heat issue; but I can't afford to upgrade to full water yet.

Hi guys.
i own an asus m4n98td-evo board and i'm running an 1100T black edition. so far i've managed to squeeze 3.6ghz out of it. all i did was raise the multiplier from 16.5 to 18.0 and up the core voltage to 1.45v. i also disabled cool n quiet. what i wanna ask you guys is how would i achieve a stable say 4.0ghz. my system becomes unstable if i up the multiplier past 18.0
specs are....
asus m4n98td-evo
amd phenom 2 x6 1100T Black Edition
8 gig corsair 1333mhz (el cheapo ram)
galaxy gtx 560ti gc (oc to 935mhz)
850w antec psu
corsair h70 water cooling (cpu only)
antec dark fleet 85 foll tower case with 8 120mm fans
6tb sata 3 hdds

i havent touched any other settings appart from the multiplier, the core voltage and cool n quiet. what else should i do to get stability at higher clock speeds??
thanks guys, hope to hear from you soon

it is a dance between multi and fsb and the cpu/nb speed is important as well also you mite need more volts it is hard to tell someone to push there system because no one wants to feel responsible for a mistake I can take a AIDA64 shot of my settings on the board I am on they are about the same settings I had on my 98td-evo as well I am running a quad core but the settings are about the same tweak here and there different but 4.0 should not be to hard with good cooling and the right TIM also

First, welcome to the thread. Don't forget to post a verification, so I can add you to the club.

I still haven't been able to get a stable 4.0 on mine. I had 3.9 for a while;
but recently had to drop back down to 3.8, since it started going unstable.

As Bradford said, it's really a dance between ref clock, multiplier, and voltage. I know some people have gotten stable overclocks with a multiplier setting of 20 or higher; but for the most part it doesn't seem to like anything too much higher than 18. Vdroop also makes it difficult to overclock successfully; and I've had to crank my Vcore up to 1.55 to get it stable. Your current setting of 1.45v is a good place to start.

CPU/NB voltage, and FSB are all important, and it takes a lot of trial and error. The best way to achieve a stable overclock is to leave your multiplier around 18-18.5, drop the FSB speed down a bit, up the CPU/NB voltage a couple points (you shouldn't need to do much, as long as it doesn't go into the yellow you're fine); and play with upping the ref clock in small increments until things start to go unstable, then play with the Vcore and CPU/NB voltage a little more.

You might also want to loosen the timings on your RAM a little; since that can have a huge effect on stability, especially if you're using the low-end stuff.

i uploaded my screen shot through an attatchment. hey random noob question, where do i find the ref clock in bios? i might be blind as a bat. and also what are the stock settings for the cpu/nb frequency and fsb? all mine are set to auto. just so i have a bit of an idea what ranges to tinker with do you reckon upgrading my ram to maybe 1600mhz stuff give me a bit of a boost with stability? the sticks im using at the moment are just $20 specials from the bargain bin in my local computer shop

When you set your options from Auto to Manual, the numbers that show up should be the defaults. Or if you want to be sure, simply reset your bios to defaults, then go from Auto to Manual and you'll be sure to see the default numbers.

As for RAM, upgrading certainly can't hurt. You might try running a memtest to see if there are any obvious issues with the RAM you're currently using; but if the RAM is rated slower than the bus speed you're trying to use, then it will definitely not allow you much leeway in overclocking.

ETA: Your screenshot doesn't appear to have uploaded. It's not showing up on your post.

It means if you have a 64bit OS it can handle 16 gigs of 2000Mhz ram un-buffered non ecc ram! I do believe!
