    Please post me a link to your exact ram, and then fill this out with what you are using now and I will advise some settings for you. And please do suggest what CPU speed you would like to run at

    This is Just a template I use to ask people their settings, pay no attention to the numbers in it, replace with yours

    LLSMEASAP,
    THANK YOU for your quick reply.
    Here is a link to my RAM: NCIX.com - Buy Patriot Viper Extreme Performance 4GB DDR3 2X2GB PC3-12800 DDR3-1600 CL 7-7-7-20 Memory Kit - PVS34G1600LLK In Canada.

    I don't want overclock too much. Perhaps 3 to 3.2 GHz. I use ArcticCooler 7 for my cooler. Stability is more important to me than benchmark scores.

    Here are my current BIOS Settings:

    Stasio > Ooops, that 2.8 was a typo on my part. It's actually 2.66.

    I will try your suggested settings now and will report back. Thanks guys.

    LSD,
    Ok, I've used your recommended settings, but I changed my DDR3 Over Voltage to +.40. In your post you suggest +.10 = 1.6v, and since my ram is 1.9v, I used +.40... am I correct in doing so?

    I've ran 3Dmark Vantage a couple of times, and so far so good.

    My CPU idles at mid 30sC

    I'm quite content at 3.2GHz. I'll keep stressing it for a couple more hours to make sure it's stable.

    Seem it don't work if you use ACHI either. I use RAID but not on OS harddrive can be that in bios it says RAID dunno.

    Well, I've been runnning Orthos for about an hour now and so far no problems...

    Lsdmeasap, could you please clarify the below, which number should I use the first or the second? Currently I'm using the second...

    Also do you recommend using Gigabyte's Dynamic Energy Saver? I would like to since my computer is idling most of the time, but don't want it to cause problems...
    THANKS!
