    I used to wonder about the ratio as well. After trying a couple of ratios, I am convinced that no ratio is better than the other, especially on the P45 boards. However, I have found some ratios to be easier to get stable than others.

    I meant Intel Burn Test (linpack?) for 6 runs. If you are using the Linpack in OCCT, then disregard my comment. Sorry for the confusion.

    For ORTHOS, yes, get the Dual Core version as it stresses both cores at the same time. I first run Small FFT for about an hour to make sure the CPU voltage is correct. You can accept all default options, but I like priority 9. You will not be able to use your computer while testing, but priority 9 is more stressful in my opinion. Priority 1 will still stress your rig very well, but you will be able to use your PC at the same time.

    Once you know CPU Vcore is good, proceed to Large FFT, priority 9, for an hour. Then you will know if RAM is okay.

    Finally, proceed to Blend Test. After you select Blend Test, go back to the drop-down menu and select custom. Leave everything at default, but change "Time to run each FFT" to 3 minutes. It is very important to select Blend Test, and then go back and select Custom! Run this for as long as you are able to. I ran for 15 hours before I manually stopped it, but you should be fine if you get no errors after 4 hours, especially if you are using my settings.
    Have completed your Small FFT and Large FFT tests fine. Will hit the Blend Test hopefully later today. I'll let you know.

    Outer Marker:

    You said: "Finally, proceed to Blend Test. After you select Blend Test, go back to the drop-down menu and select custom.

    I assume then I should leave the priority at 1 or should I use 9 like in the first two tests?

    I like to use priority 9 for all tests. Nothing wrong with 1, though.

    Hi, I am new to the site and just finished reading this thread. I tried using the OP's 3.6 settings but PC just keeps rebooting before going back to stock settings. This is my new build:

    C2D E8400 + XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 cooler
    GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3R Motherboard
    OCZ Reaper HPC 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) OCZ2RPR10664GK
    CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W Power Supply
    SAPPHIRE 100265HDMI Radeon HD 4830 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express

    I am not sure if you need more information such as case, HD, optical drives, etc. I just want to be able to OC my system to 3.8 or 4.0Ghz at the most. I loaded the Optmized settings in BIOS after it crashed, I believe all I changed currently on the Bios is the DRAM voltage to 2.1V.

    Here's info on my RAM:

    OCZ Technology | Products | Memory | OCZ DDR2 PC2-8500 Reaper HPC 4GB Edition

    Let me know if you still need me to provide exact current MIT settings.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    THANKS.

    Hello, and welcome

    I think just a few modifications are needed to get you to 3.6. First of all, your memory timings should be set to 5-5-5-18 for your memory rather than 5-5-5-15 as in my original settings. Also, if DRAM 2.100V does not work for you, try 2.120V. Not sure if that is what you used to begin with or not. Give that a try and let us know.

    4hr.s 20min using the blend test and done to the "t" on your instructions. No errors.

    Raptor: you might try Outer Markers 3.83 stable specs with a few tweaks. Be sure to use the recommended factory settings for the RAM. This seems to be important.

    I ran Core Temp during this test and it looks like the max temp was 54C. Using the Xigmatek S1283.

    Thanks Outer Marker and SBmongoos! It worked. I used the 3.83 settings and just changed the timings to 5-5-5-18 along with 2.12V and it worked! I am going to run Prime 95 and see how it's doing. Thanks again!

    No problem. I appreciate all the info from Outer Marker and also Lsdmeasap earlier on. Both were a big help to me.

    Outer Marker: keep us posted if you hit 4Ghz or higher!
