20x200 should do it

watch the temps, max is 62c, keep it under 55c
if its not stable, up the core voltage 1 step at a time, max 1.55v

Do you have anything besides the stock CPU cooler cooling? If not I would highly suggest only OC'ing for test purposes and waiting to get sufficient cooling before trying to run this system continually.

Please add your your system to your rig sig as is mine, it makes it nicer to view and helps others when your asking for help.

Here's a real good thread that will give you a lot of the "How Too's" and will also give you a very good path to follow. http://www.overclock.net/amd-general...ing-guide.html
Take whatever time is necessary and study it a bit and see what you can learn. There is also a very good club you might want to look at listed in my sig (Crosshair IV Formula/Extreme Club) where you can find a lot of help after you have a few of the basics down which is not a requirement only a suggestion lol.

You have a top of the setup there. Don't cut things short with a CPU only OC.Take full advantage of that mobo and you'll be much happier.

One thing to remember is even thou you can ask for others settings to get a 4.0 OC, it probably won't be optimized your particular combination as all chips are not the same and have there own demands to be stable. It's far better to learn your individual chips limits and demands. OC'ing takes a little time and is nothing to rush through. Take your time and learn as you go for best results. Use small increases and do lots of testing, those that rush end up using more voltage than necessary which will only increase heat and make more work with less of a OC.

If I can help with anything, feel free to PM me, ask on here, or the CHIV F/E Club. I'm always happy to help those that ask for it. By the way, enjoy your stay on OCN.
