    I mean unless you set Standard for performance enhance you do not have full control over the settings.

    That's exactly what I don't understand :)
    I lived under the impression that either Standard or Turbo sets different values "somewhere", but what you say sounds like Turbo "hides" something and Standard doesn't.

    edit: btw I added front intake fan and no temperature changed AT ALL. wtf :-O

    Is it an inside intake?
    Mine is located behind the front panel and I had to seal all empty bays so it won't just circulate the air inside.

    I might experiment with that later, no balls for now...

    I don't remember how do refs increase with one step higher VTT, but you get the idea.

    Standard, Turbo, and Extreme set different amounts for various settings, standard will set the defaults and turbo/extreme will raise/change certain things. Nothing is "Hidden" when using one or the other, but there is some hidden settings you cannot access that may be changed

    Ref's increase with Vtt and Vdimm. Here is how that works, also see my signature for further info

    CPU Termination (Vtt) Automatically changes the following if manually set >>>

    CPU Reference Voltage (.63% of Default Vtt/1.20) .76 ET
    CPU Reference2 Voltage (.67% of Default Vtt/1.20) .80 ET
    MCH Reference Voltage (.63% of Default Vtt/1.20) .76 ET

    DRAM Voltage Automatically changes the following if manually set >>>

    MCH/DRAM Reference Voltage (.50% of Default Dram Voltage)
    DRAM Termination Voltage (.50% of Default Dram Voltage)
    Channel A Reference Voltage (.50% of Default Dram Voltage)
    Channel B Reference Voltage (.50% of Default Dram Voltage)

    Tried to squeeze the bloody PC to work with 1.24 MCH core, but no way. Finally it is 1.26 and 7x533 with VCORE raised by two notches.

    Well that sounds ok, with higher FSB you will need more MCH voltage anyway likely.

    I tried to get 7.5 multi to work, but even 1.3 VCORE wasn't enough.
    Now the strange thing is that with two notches above default CPU temperature is at 55C during Small FFTs test. I belive I was around 70's "back then"... I am very sure the cooler is attached perfectly, plus core temperatures report roughly 60, so it should be accurate.
    That said, would you go for 4GHz+ quest? :)

    I'd rather solve the bloody NB heatsink grilling everything around issue, but screw it, I will just place a small slow fan on it. The package even contains clips similar to those I use on the CPU (it's Thermalright as well after all).

    edit: no way, I hereby declare 533 as maximum for this voltage and will focus on CPU only.

    Even 535x7 fails :) Looks like I hit the limits :P
    Well, let's try higher CPU term!

    And btw LLC let me boot and test in Prime95! It does have a purpose even below 1.36!
