The screenies is where i got to earlier with my OC pc's run fine all day.

4030MHZ
CPU RAT 19.5
BUS 206
dram 1648 787/24
Cpu/NB 2678
HT 2060
Vcore 1.46 (in bios)
Cpu/NB 1.206V
Ram1.625V

CPU 44 to 45c Full load with prime Cores at 48 to 51c

I think thats a good startuing point from what I read, tomo Im trying to up it all...

Maybe you can glean something from that

  • HT Link: 2000 MHz
  • RAM: 1600 MHz - 9-9-9-24 - 1.65v
No errors reported.

However, when increasing the CPU ratio to 20.5, Blend test failed (Small FTTs ran fine for 7 minutes).
In consequence, my assumption is that RAM is failing (possibly falling behind CPU speed?). In any case, as I have not changed any RAM or NB setting, what could I possibly change to make the test pass?
If it is RAM related, it's probably out of my comfort zone. I'm pretty new to this stuff myself. Might be worth asking around in the AMD Memory section.

Good idea. I started a new thread here: http://www.overclock.net/amd-memory/...am-stable.html

I'll keep on testing. Feel free to drop by if you think of anything else.
In any case, thank you again for your continuous help!
