Ok I have found that the CPU vid special add is is in fact my voltage setting. I was shooting for a 3.4 earlier but couldn't get any stability I increased the voltage by 50 mili volts but miscalculated what a mini volt was I thought it was .5 rather than .05 lol. So I need more voltage also with the memory these stick are DDR 800 rated to oc to 1066 and run at 2.1v so I'll have to set the memory to 2.1 and then find what ever memory speed will get me as close to 1066 as possible then ishpuld be stable. So to start a build at 3.2 with memory running in 1066 is the plan. Let me know if this sounds right guys.

Ok so I'm a 3.28 365*9 multiplier. I have memory voltage locked in at 2.1 I have the timings manually set and I have vcore at 1.32 but when I run prime the 4th worker runs into an error after about 1-3 minutes. Continue with voltage?

Sound like the voltage is too low if it is failing Prime95.

With regards to your previous post about VTT, VTT is System Bus Input Supply Voltage, often referenced as FSB termination voltage (VFSB) simply the voltage the fsb is running on.

also what is the deal with the multiplier? higher or lower which is more stable?

Well a little update new clock seems very stable. Been knocking out prime for an hour now. 375X9 3.379 at 1.39v idle temps were 23-27 load temps have been steady at 50-51 not bad. Looks like she has quite a bit more in her but I think I'm going to stop here abd see how she games. I have a feeling I can squeeze 3.5 out if it at about 55-60 degrees. Well see.

Sounds like you've got it all done.

FSB does not need adjusting unless you have a bottleneck.
