I am running an E7400 @ 350x10.5 I have been stuck here for a few weeks.

vcore 1.375 in bios
vtt 1.14 in bios
NB 1.24 in bios
vdimm 1.90 in bios

I can go to 355x10.5 if I up my vdimm to 1.99

if I go to 360x10.5 It will post but not boot all the way into Ubuntu

I have read so many conflicting things on the net about all of these settings my head is spinning.

For instance OCZ says my ram should be between 2.1v-2.2v but I have seen some people say this will fry my CPU. How can more vdimm fry my CPU?

More VDIMM will not fry your CPU. You should set the rated voltage for the memory.

Just so I am clear. If OCZ say 2.1v-2.2v I should go ahead and set this in my bios? When I do this it goes from blue to yellow. I don't mean to be repetitive but I am new at this and don't want to fry my hardware.

Yes its fine! I have my OCZ's at 2.1v since they are rated at that.

Blue is low, yellow is medium and red is high voltage. But if your manufacturer states those voltages it's completely safe to use them.

ok I will set my vdimm @ 2.1v
I have lowered my multi and am increasing my fsb right now. It seems If I stay @ 3.7ghz I am ok. I hope this isn't my chips limit. Do I have any room left on my vcore or would going up be dangerous?
