Success!!! Reinstalled windows and loaded up 3.2Ghz 1422FSB @ 1.4vcore (should I lower this? I went from 1.325 to 1.4 - 3.0ghz to 3.2ghz)!

Next, try 1.45v-1.47v

You can really go as high as 1.55v

Just make sure temps don't exceed 71c while using LinX/IBT/Prime 95

Again. Do I have to adjust any memory timings or voltages? This seems too simple to OC CPU!

just make sure your memory is running at it's rated specification

I have the: OCZ SLI-Ready Dual Channel DDR2 800 4GB 2 x 2GB

I believe I have the timings on auto "optimal" ---

Also I cannot boot into windows with 3.4Ghz... I've tried all the way to 1.5v and stopped... help?

do you have a section for "manual"

also, make sure that you're running less than 800MHz or @ 800 MHz when you set 3.4GHz in.

This way you don't overclock the RAM either.

Can anyone help me out as well? I have set my vcore up to 1.4 and my core up to something like 380x9. and in the BIOS it shows my Processor should be running at 3.4gHz. But when I run CPU-Z at start, it still shows the stock 2.4..

I really want some help to revive mine as well. It takes me exactly:

2hrs 19mins 10s to render a 12min 56s 720p file in Sony Vegas 9...

You mean this one? It's been at 800mhz manual since 2.8ghz (ignore that I have it at 3.2ghz now stable.)
