Well I just got my chip to 3.93GHz, I am posting a SS as well as a CPU-Z validation link, I cannot seem to get it to 4GHz but don't know the in's and out's of the board yet, the chip is also for sale if you are interested

That's awesome, gratz!!! Can you go higher? or does it require too much voltage or produce too much heat?

Nice overclock. Could just be your ram that is crappy out.

AT 4.0ghz with a 9x multi, you are pushing those OCZs close to 900mhz.

I am sure it can go higher I just don't know what to set for CPU VTT and PLL as well as the GTL reference voltages, it will post at 4GHz but BSOD's before I get to the desktop

EDIT> This is a 780i so my ram is set independently, its running at 800MHz

Well I just tested stability and it didn't BSOD but by the time a minute had passed temps were up to 80C and I stopped the test. The Xiggy, while a good cooler cannot cool a chip this hot. I will be getting WC soon and will be trying again but my 24/7 will remain 3.6GHz at 1.344v where my temps stay under 60C
