    That's true. But I believe I used to run 485x7.5 on last board.
    Oh well, whatever.
    Currently testing under 1.27 VCORE and the damn CPU is still stable. lol.

    Will it bork anything if I enable those power saving features in BIOS? C1E - C4E or whatever are they called.

    It may make the system unstable, but there's more chance of success than failure. EIST/C1E won't adjust Vcore downward if a manual voltage is set, just set the multi to 6, so it should be fine.

    Hmm do I have to set the VCORE to normal in order for these to work?
    I seriously just booted into Windows at 1.25V without any problems at 3.75GHz.

    Nope. Keep everything as it is and just enable EIST and C1E. Other C states aren't worth bothering with, and likely require n auto vcore and non overclocked system to reduce power via switching off phases.

    A windows boot's a good sign of course, but is it stable? Run 5 iterations of max stress IBT, and if it passes, go on to Prime for 8-12 hours as usual.

    Ok then. I remember you posting a link to an article about the saving states, but I seem to have lost it. Could you give me the link please?
    The two you mention are the most important and work best you say, right?

    5 loops with 3GB RAM used, stable.
    Blend it is now :)

    Which Memtest86+ tests do people usually try? I know it is one or two specific ones as preliminary check whether there might be stability or not.

    Lets see LSD says (from his memset sticky thread) http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/memo...vs-bios-27283/

    "To run tests by number, you do this >>>
    1. First press C

    2. then 1

    3. then 3

    4. and finally select the test that you want to run

    5. press Enter

    6. and then 0 to get it running

    I mention this because you may often see myself or someone else suggest only running certain tests by #'s at certain points. Which is what I do when fine tunning subtimings, I will run Test #2 and Test #5 for a variable amount of time between changing settings one a a time. After many moves though, please be sure to run some full tests for several hours."

    Personally I find Memtest all but useless for stability testing. Use it to diagnose a RAM hardware fault, but other than that, it's not worth bothering with.

    There have been countless times on other machines I've used Memtest and gotten no errors, then booted into Windows and got a prime failiure. These failiures (not all of them) were sorted with either MCH core or DRAM voltage changes and the odd timing tweak. Memtest is a pure time sink unless you've just bought a new set of sticks.

    For new modules, Memtest won't hurt. Run 5-6 loops of all tests, then loop test 5 for 1 hour. If there are any major hardware faults, you will find out from that.

    I hear you :)
    Tuned down some memory timings and some other stuff, and what's probably the most interesting - currently testing 7.5x500 with MCH core 1.200. I am starting to think I have gotten my hands on very good piece. I still gotta think about the cooling though.
    Btw. From what I read, it looks like the best way to test mostly the board is custom test, 2048-4096 FFT size, and as much memory used as possible. Torture test your CPU with Prime95
