    Hello!

    Well it appears I am finally stable. I upped the CPU voltage a tiny bit, raised NB voltage a tiny bit and lowered the MCH to .2. Ran prime95 for 13 hours. Nothing happened bad, I just shut it down after that because I had things to do. So far so good. Thanks for your help!

    Hey would you have any recommendations for going to 3.2, besides voltage adjustments? Or would it just be a matter of messing with voltages again? Thanks

    Ya, you can just add more voltage and change the FSB. You might have to use a different multi but not likely. Actually here try this for 3.2 >>>

    Robust Graphics Booster___________ [Fast]
    CPU Clock Ratio ____________ [9]
    Fine Clock Ratio ____________[NA]
    CPU Host Clock Control_ [Enabled]
    CPU Host Frequency (MHz)__________ [355]
    PCI Express Frequency (Mhz)_______ [100]
    C.I.A. 2__________________________ [Disabled]
    System Memory Multiplier (SPD)____ [2.40B/D] =850Mhz

    DRAM Timing Selectable_______ SPD __ [Manual]

    Performance Enhance = [Standard]

    CAS Latency Time________________4/5
    Dram RAS# to CAS# Delay_________ 4
    Dram RAS# Precharge Delay_______4
    Precharge Delay (tRAS)__________ 12

    ACT to ACT Delay (tRRD)_________ 3-4
    Rank Write to READ Delay________ 3-6
    Write to Precharge Delay_________ 4-6
    Refresh to ACT Delay______________ 52-60
    Read to Precharge Delay__________2-6
    Static tRead Value_______________7-9
    Static tRead Phase Adjust________ [Auto]

    CPU/PCIEX Clock Driving Control [800mV]
    CPU Clock Skew Control [normal]
    GMCH Clock Skew Control [Normal] << try 100-150ps

    System Voltage Control____ [Manual]
    DDR2 OverVoltage Control__ [+0.300V]
    PCI-E OverVoltage Control_ [+0.1V]
    FSB OverVoltage Control___ [+0.1V]
    (G)MCH OverVoltage Control [+0.3V] << Try .25 later
    CPU Voltage Control_______ [1.38750] << Just copied from your previous settings, add more then what you are using now

    Thanks for the suggestion, but no dice. Didn't seem to matter what I did, at 3.2, I got BSOD immediately with prime95. I even took cpu voltage up to 1.4250. Less than that and it wouldn't even POST. I am leary about going higher. Also, I am going to try to set up crossfire again tonight, any suggestions? Will I need more voltage anywhere? Thanks again for your time.

    Sounds like you did not have enough CPU Voltage then. What you need to do before you run prime is be sure your ram is stable, otherwise you wont know what is causing prime to fail. But from what you say, sounds like you need more vcore. You will be fine with more then 1.425 and you may need it. Longs as temps are good you will be fine

    Crossfire you may want to add +0.1 to PCI-E voltage

    If you still dont get anywhere post me your full settings you are trying that fail and I will advise. Be sure you check what you set in the BIOS for vcore vs what you get in windows with CPU-z and let me know what that is

    Thanks! I will try some more voltage. I have already ran memtest >12 hours with no errors. I am currently stable with crossfire and my current settings! I might want to just leave well enough alone. :) If I do go for it, I will let you know.
