Found out my Cooler's name is Cooler Master Hyper TX3 (RR-910-HTX3-GP).

I just switched my CPUf down to 230 and set my HT and NB at 2.0Mhz, but according to CPU-Z both HT and NB are at 2.3Mhz. They seem to always go up according to my CPUf even if it isn't on auto. Anyone know why that is, or how to fix it?

Edit: I figured out that I just needed to lower both HT and NB even more to get it to not overclock. For example I just set NB to 1.8Mhz and HT to 1.6Mhz in Bios, and CPU-Z has it now at 2.07 and 1.84 respectively.

Alright, I'm up to 240 CPUf giving me 3.6Ghz on each core. Anything above that I get BSOD, the weird thing though is that adding more to the CPU Core Voltage doesn't seem to help stability. My NB is at 2.1Ghz and NT is at 1.9 Ghz.

I couldn't figure out how to adjust my Ram timings, I'll try to figure that out when I can. I am pretty happy with the 3.6Ghz for now, but might as well see what else I can do.

I've been tweaking my settings to OC and my cpu fan quit. I changed the power source for the fan to the system fan(has only 3 prongs instead of 4) and it seems to work fine for now. Is it ok to leave it there, or can I mess something up?

it might shorten your fans life a little if u leave it that way.. did the 4 prong one burn out? are you running some sort of temperature monitoring software? sometimes they control fan speeds.

Apparently it did burn out. I am running CPUID Hardware Monitor, CPU-Z, and Prime95.

when trying to unlock, make sure you try upping the CPU/NB volts too.

On my unlocked x3 740

CPU is @ ~1.47V
CPU/NB is @ ~1.48V
