    Please give me ONLY the full exact settings you are using that you need help with, you have to many variables listed above for me to know what you are using.

    And please also post a screenshot of Memset so I can see what you are getting for all of those Auto's you are using.

    BIOS:
    Static tRead Value.....................8
    ...
    MemSet:
    Performance Level 12
    ...
    Hope you didn't 'Save' with MemSet before. If so unapply.
    Do you have your memset run at startup? If so remove it..

    ^^ Right ^^

    I have to ask a few questions before I advise here. Do you pass 5-10 Full passes of Memtest86+ with your ram running at that speed? They are very loose timings, so it may be fine I just wanted to know for sure if you have tested it or not. If not please do with this version >>
    Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

    Do you pass orthos or Prime95?

    Here is what I would advise >>>

    Hi Lsdmeasap,

    Please find below answers to your questions:

    Ive tried to run Memtest86+ but have been unable to get it going.

    I've tested the current setup with orthos but the RAM test fails after about a minute due to a fatal error. The CPU test goes for about 5 mins then the computer reboots.

    I've tried the 3.33D Mutiplier but could only get it going with 10.10.10. 27 timings and therefore the Memory bandwidth benchmarks were better with the 3.20B Multi.

    I've checked the DRAM voltage setting with HWMonitor and its reading 1.73V. The RAM is rated for 667MHz at 1.7V so I'm not sure how high I can go.

    Any Ideas for a stable OC at 3.8G with the 3.20B or any other Multi would be greatly appreciated.

    Best regards,

    Cosmos S
