EDIT: I tried upping the PLL, doesn't seem to work for me. I think this is some kind of bug, as 100.8MHz BCLK is stable. But anyhoo, 3494MHz RAM @ 14-14-15-14-28 and tightened subtimings, this is still honestly better than I was expecting.
I think it's one of your drives. I have a 850 so I don't think it's that. Perhaps that HD64 drive?

But do try more PLL voltage. Which SATA drives do you use?

Not sure if the multipliers are locked if I go over 101, it would seem not since I got almost 1900 points in Cinebench R15 with 101 BCLK.

So is this just a bug, I've seen people running above 103MHz without issues. 100.8MHz works just fines, running prime95 for hours is no problem.

On my C6H I run a PE3 w/101.8Bclk = 4255/4428MHz not an issue. My chip will use either 41.8 or 42 multiplier depending on ambient temp at boot.

Don't forget you may need to drop a divider on memory depending on current dram oc if any.

Ok at least I know now I can manage it by bumping it up in bios by 1 when I have them turned on and put it back to normal when not. Thanks for your help.
