    This is rather getting confusing >_> OK lets make it easier...lets settle down witht eh CPU thing first, then get down to memory hows that guys? Haha, this is getting mind boggling as both of you are on 2 different paths.

    I do appreciate you guys helping me :)

    Anyways, I set my BIOS setting to what you told me to do on first reply creamsoda, except I change the MCH REference to 0.760V and stayed with 2.00B for Memory multiplier.

    Should I run Prime95 now? PC is now at 3.6GHZ with no signs of choppiness :D I suppose changing MCH reference to 0.760 helped :)

    Incase you haven't noticed, Chike is running a P43 board & E7xxx CPU.. far from what WE have.
    Chike likes cheap stuff, he has ovetclocked his CPU by 34% so far in the two weeks he has it, and if plan come true he will end with 43%.
    And what is exatly the difference between P43 and P45 if you don't mind to enlighten me?

    What you do is trying to feed him with a spoon while I am trying to teach him to eat by himself.

    Now... nuff flaming

    And I gotta get some sleep
    peace out

    No. We might still have to deal with MCH ref later. Because the NB on the DS3R is not very stable.

    Run Prime95 small FFT, watch your temperatures.

    Should I run Lavalys to check temps? Also, whats a Temp I should look out for?

    you can run any temp program you want.. just make sure the core temps are under 65c in Prime95. Some ppl go a bit higher than 65, which is fine. It's not going to fry the CPU, that's for sure.

    First, run Prime95 small FFT for 10hrs. (stresses CPU)

    Then run Large FFT 10hrs. (stresses NB)

    Then "Blend" for 24hrs. (stresses CPU/NB/RAM)

    INTERESTING lol I guess I wont be doing much on the computer XD So far its at 56C so I guess thats pretty good :)

    Thanks a lot...now I just need to decipher what Chike said and digest it :/ Needs a bit of explanation though haha.

    So after these tests...then what? Memory?

    If you can run all 3 of those tests for those amounts of time, without any errors/crashes, then you can move on to overclocking your RAM.
