unclewebb helped me make sense of overclocking with MSRs and I was able to make a script for it, which is posted on TPU here: https://www.techpowerup.com/forums/t...235975/page-27
. MSR documentation for (all?) CPUs is here: https://software.intel.com/sites/def...abcd-3abcd.pdf
. Finally got the CPU overclocked in Linux and doing a 24hr stress test with 80% RAM.

If you can disable ECC in the BIOS you may gain something from the reduced overhead. But maybe the JEDEC timings won't change.
The notebook modders use RW Eveything maybe you cna get some ideas here.
That makes sense, maybe the PLL isn't supported. I noticed the FSB did go up, but it seems strange that it hard locked with only ~+7 with or without an HDD attached. I'm glad the OS was on a flashdrive, I had no idea there was a virus warning. Thanks for pointing that out (+rep).
No ECC option unfortunately. I'll have a look at RW Everything and the link you provided, thank you.
