Another 3800X2 OC question

431 8
I am trying to get my CPU to 2.75-2.8, but it seems almost impossible, Here are some bios stats: FSB=300x9=2.7(stable), HT freq 3x=900, CPU core=1.65, Chipset core=1.7, DDR core=3.0, RAM is DDR 600, timings=2.5,4,4,8 stock, I cant get stable at anything above 2.7, at 2.73 and above I get a BSOD at windows startup, temps =20idle, and 50load dual P95, I'm too scared to set the CPU core any higher(ie2.75) Does anyone have any suggestions or advice?

2.7 is an excellent overclock for that cpu....most people cant get to 2.6...so I would be happy with it.
If you want more, do as recommended before and throw a divider on and make sure only your cpu would be the cause of instability...keep your HTT multi in check also.

then you should have got the 165 opty. better chance of hitting those numbers, and clock for clock the opty would have outperformed your x2 3800 at the same speeds by far.
