    Yeap, good score for sure. More MCH and RAM Voltage and you can run Trd 7

    Hey Lsd just was wondering what is the highest you can go with the MCH, i had it to 1.3 with ram to 2.2 and MCH Clock Skew to 250. I nearly got windows to load but then suddenly BSOD then restart.

    Hesitated to go higher not knowing if it would be safe?

    cheers

    Well, intel max spec is 1.21, but I personally have used 1.45 but not for long. I would say 1.35-1.4ish is safe for 24/7 use but you should not need more then 1.3 with 4GB unless you are trying to push things very hard or you have some other setting that is off

    ok got it to work, changed the following.

    MCH Clock skew from 100 to 250.
    MCH Core 1.24 to 1.38
    Ram voltage to 2.3
    Driving Strength OC-1200 (wont boot at strength 1066)

    Ran another Bench an got
    Read 8708 now 8955
    Write 9153 now 9154 (lol)
    Copy 9043 to 9093 (lol lol)
    Latency 59 now 56 Ram running at 5:6 5,5,5,12 2t @3.67Mhz

    is this a minor improvement from stressing the system harder, not sure at all or isn't it stressing it out?

    with my original OC (see sig) i had as follows.
    Read 8517
    Write 9643 (higher)
    didn't do a Copy....
    Latency 60. Ram running at 1:1

    cheers on your input :)

    Higher Read would be better, but overall latency results would be what I would choose the best of. And of course what is most stable. A few Points here or there +/- is not going to matter at all, only to a benchmark
