Thats ^^ as high as i can get it, i think it might be my mobo (not am2+). But i found it odd that it didnt like 17x multi so i might try skipping it and try 18x or somthing, later. but would like to enjoy my 3.6ghz goodness.

Thanks man, I'm glad that it was useful to you
Try increasing your NB and HT voltages. Those seemed to help me out a bit with my OC. Although I really do think that both of us are being held back by our boards.
I needed 1.55v to hit 3.6GHz, but that is relatively high for this speed. Most people with a newer AMD board have been hitting 3.7-4GHz with those same voltages. I cant confirm that my board is the problem atm, but thats the general consensus.
I am not sure about your board but from what I have been reading, people seem to have more luck by just increasing the multi instead of the referance clock. It also helps to increase NB frequency, to stabilize this CPU. I have had very good luck with my cpu and I am currently being conservetive and I am @3.6 prime stable with [email protected](Cpu [email protected],475v and NB VID +0.150v ) . I also found out that stability with 64bit vista is a lot harder than 32bit Vista. I hope it helps, good luck.
