    PM'd to you about 3.4 ~ Posted here incase anyone reads later and wonders about any settings used for 3.4

    8 and 9 Multi Values are shown below

    To get 3.4 you will likely need to do some playing around with your CPU Vcore. What I do is set it to way high, like higher then I know it needs. Then lower it until I find it to be too low, then raise it back up a bit.

    If I was you I would try 1.4 and see if it boots and is stable or not. If so then you can likely lower. If not try 1.45 and see how that goes with the same method.

    For your settings as far as CPU and Ram Freq Area those would be different a bit, you would want to use these settings in conjunction with what I posted on the thread >>>

    Using 9 Multi with Ram at 1002Mhz & CPU @ 3.4

    MB Intelligent Tweaker(M.I.T.)
    Robust Graphics Booster ...............: [Auto]
    CPU Clock Ratio ..........................: 9
    Fine CPU Clock Ratio.....................:.0
    CPU Frequency ...........................: 3.40GHz (9 X 377 FSB = 3.393)


    Clock Chip Control
    Standard Clock Control
    CPU Host Clock Control..................: [Enabled]
    CPU Host Frequency (Mhz) ............: 377 Mhz (FSB)
    PCI Express Frequency (Mhz) .........:Set to 100

    CPU Clock Skew (ps)....................: <<< 150ps << Both may work fine with lower
    MCH Clock Skew (ps)...................: <<< 250ps <<< See above

    Both those Skews help with higher FSB, so if you do not need with the 9 multi and 377 FSB you may need them with the 425 or above. Just keep in mind, also may not be needed at all until 450+, all in testing is how to know for sure


    DRAM Performance Control

    Or

    Same as stated above, more relevant though here likely >>>

    Okay thanks I have been so busy and pulled a all nighter yesterday but I'm going to try all settings and see what happens. You have no idea how tired I have been all day. But thank you for your help after change settings and everything trust me I'll be back :)

    Then see who can help me with the memory :)

    God Bless you all.

    Nope, not posted anywhere yet, but I do see some working on finding it at the proper sites. So likely soon!

    Okay I just got stable at Vcore: 1.46250V however in CPU-Z its showing 1.328V - 1.344V.

    Is this normal? Geez that is huge Vdroop

    There is no help with Vdroop, You are fine using a higher setting in the BIOS anyway. The only voltage that may affect your chip is what it is actually getting in windows which is low so you are fine.

    Do not worry about it they way you are. I mean if you have to set 3.5 in the BIOS but vdroop once into windows only gave you 1.2 then 1.2 would be your voltage and you would not need to worry about killing your chip with 3.5V. Get what I mean there?

    Try this for 1066 range and see if it help any>>>
    (G)MCH Frequency Latch...............: [333]
    System Memory Multiplier ..............: 3.0
    Memory Frequency (Mhz) ..............: 1065 MHz

    So the Vcore voltage that I worry about is the one that CPU-Z says? Even if its above 1.5V? I think I understand just want to make sure. So if i set it in the BIOS at 1.525V but on CPU-Z it only shows 1.438V then go by what CPU-Z because that tells you the true Vcore that the cpu is using correct? I just don't want to burn out my CPU or mess up the motherboard. But if you tell me its correct then I'll go with it you have not been wrong so far

    Again LSD thank you for all your help.

    Aslo I am running PSU 650w power supply should I upgrade that?

    Yes the vcore you need to watch is CPU-z one. What you set in the BIOS can be anything really as long as CPU-z showing actual voltage is not going to high

    So yeah, you got the right thinking. If you set 1.9 in the BIOS but CPU-z Shows you are getting 1.1 then the voltage you would be worried about in that case would be actual voltage output to the CPU of 1.1


    Your PSU is good as long as it supports your GFX card, which it does right?
