Well, I found out last weekend what my highest possible overclock is on my 3700, 2.95 with 1.65 vcore. Specs to follow:
2-2-2-5 Timings, I can do CAS 1.5, but apparently there's a performance hit associated with 1.5?
Vcore 1.65, Vdimm 3.5, Vchipset 1.6, LDT 1.2.

I'm able to do 3.0 ghz, 300*10, but it's not stable. I started to bump up the vcore, and in OCCT, I noticed that as vcore increased, the test failed closer to finishing, so I concluded that as I juiced it up more, stability did increase, but I was running 1.75 vcore before I backed off at 295*10 at 1.65 vcore, where I'm comfortable. Is there another route I should take besides trying to juice it up, or is this the limit of the chip?

I'm certain that it's my CPU because my RAM will run up to 260 mhz at 1.5-2-2-5, and I'm on a divider which slows it down to 245.

I dunno, there are different steppings that might overclock better than others, yours was a good one probably.

Okay, I'm gonna have a lot of time tonight to fiddle with settings. I'm going to find the max HTT that my motherboard is able to handle, and I'll report back.

Max HTT is 380...

Anyway, couldn't do it, no matter what combination I tried. Tomorrow, I'm going to try 328*9 with a 166 divider in an attempt to bring my RAM up to its max speed.
