    So far it is stable with no issues. Iam quite happy with this OC and really don't see myself pushing any farther.

    I am using the 5-5-5-15 setting, with the Corsairs in slots 2&4 and the Mushkin in slot 3. Slot 1 is vacant.

    I am using 1x2gb Mushkin.

    Newegg.com - mushkin 2GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

    and this 2x2GB Corsair.

    Ohh, WOW, did not notice you were using 2 different brands as well! Nice to see you have that stable, it doesn't happen often and is ALWAYS suggested against

    Nice to see you are ok though, that is cool to hear

    one slot vacant? I thought you said 2x2 + 2x1, that would be 4 slots filled? Did I miss something?

    3x2gb, The 2x2gb Corsairs and 1x2gb Mushkin. 3 slots only. That cpu cooler Arctic Freezer 7 Pro interferes with slot 1 the way it is oriented. Thanks again for the help.

    Hi LSD.

    Should I adjust these settings? What do they do?

    TIA

    Code:
    CPU/PCIEX Clock Driving Control...:

    No, you dont need to adjust those unless you are trying 450-500+ FSB.

    You may find some benefit with testing out some MCH Skew, but not likely at that speed

    Hi LSD, well I thought the previous settings were good to go, but after further testing they would fail prime95 after 8 or so hours, as well as linpack. It was back to the drawing board. The changes that I have made to achieve stability are several voltage and some advanced memory settings. Could you please take a look at them now and make any recommendations? TIA




    Below are my new settings that have passed all stability testing (screencap^^^). Also passes 8 runs of memtest and 10 hours of prime. Do you see anything that I need to change?

    Code:
    Robust Graphics Booster___________ [Fast]
    CPU Clock Ratio ____________ [9]
    Fine Clock Ratio ____________[0.0]
    CPU Host Clock Control_ [Enabled]
    CPU Host Frequency (MHz)__________ [400]
    PCI Express Frequency (Mhz)_______ [100]
    C.I.A. 2__________________________ [Disabled]
    System Memory Multiplier (SPD)____ [2.40B]
    DRAM Timing Selectable_______ SPD __ [Manual]
    
    Performance Enhance = [Standard]
    
    CAS Latency Time________________5
    Dram RAS# to CAS# Delay_________ 5
    Dram RAS# Precharge Delay_______5
    Precharge Delay (tRAS)__________ 15
    
    ^^^ If your ram is 555-15/18 use that instead ^^^^
    
    ACT to ACT Delay (tRRD)_________ 4
    Rank Write to READ Delay________ 5
    Write to Precharge Delay_________5
    Refresh to ACT Delay_____________58
    Read to Precharge Delay__________ 4
    Static tRead Value_______________ 9
    Static tRead Phase Adjust________ [Auto] << Always leave
    
    System Voltage Control____ [Manual]
    DDR2 OverVoltage Control__ [+0.35V] I have a 3x2 set up
    
    PCI-E OverVoltage Control_ [+0.1V] << For stability
    FSB OverVoltage Control___ [+0.1.5V] << For stability
    (G)MCH OverVoltage Control [+0.3V] << 6GB
    CPU Voltage Control_______ [1.38] I was surprised how high I had to go,  CPUZ says 1.34-36 under load. Is this OK?
    
    Limit CPUID Max. to 3.....................: [Disabled]
    No-Execute Memory Protect............: [Enabled]
    CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E)................: [Disabled]
    C2/C2E State Support....................: [Disabled]
    x C4/C4E State Support..................: [Disabled]
    CPU Thermal Monitor 2(TM2) ...........: [Enabled]
    CPU EIST Function.........................: [Disabled]
    Virtualization Technology................: [Disabled] Enabled if you use Vmware/Virtual PC
    
    Integrated Peripherals
    Legacy USB Storage Detect___________________[Disabled] *Note* Must be enabled to flash from USB

    Nice to see stability with mismatched modules! Yes, all that looks very fine, voltages are ok as well that you asked about.

    So, you cannot use lower tRD (Static tRead) like 7 or 8? Just wondering

    You should try 399/401 FSB and see if that allows you to lower vcore any at all, 400 is right on the NB Strap line is why I suggested that. Or maybe FSB Voltage +.2 and see if Vcore can come down.

    It does look a little bit high for 3.6 is why I am making those suggestions to try, but some chips are just volt hungry so you never know. Your chip may just need that to do 3.6
