    CPU PLL - 1.500
    CPU REFERENCE - 0,871v

    MCH CORE - 1.400v
    MCH REFERENCE - 0,926
    MCH DRAM REFERENCE - 1.160v
    ICH I/O - 1.500v

    DRAM VOLTAGES (vary from Ram to Ram....)


    This are the settings that Im currently using. Hope that it helps.

    Thanks! I thought you meant to leave them and maybe a code or symbol you added messed up the settings and made it blank. So I edited your post to be sure and saw you did not leave them.

    So thanks again, hopefully it will help someone in the future

    This is just my opinion, but I think you have much more tweaking to do.

    Firstly, 1.4V MCH Core is almost certainly way too much. People are getting upwards of 500 FSB on as little as 1.26V. I also doubt that both clock drives at maximum and a 50ps NB skew are necessary, certainly not for just 4GHz.

    It's also worth noting that in general Quads respond well to higher CPU ref if you'd like to lower VTT down some (CPU Termination). 1.4V is safe (imo) but working on getting it lower would be a good idea.

    If I had my settings as yours I'd be extremely confused. So many things have been slightly tweaked that it's hard to tell what seting is really effecting stability.

    How have you tested stability? A 12 hour Prime Blend run after 10-50 runs of IBT is the minimum I'd use and call "Stable". I say it in inverted commas because stability is relative.

    Note that I'm not nit picking, merely giving you a few ideas that may help. If you can get 4GHz on 1.32Vcore then it's really likely that you don't need 1.4VTT or 1.4MCH, you seem to have a good CPU.

    The post I linked above seems to have the most comprehensive testing on forum..(+ also conners previous one) of your board and cpu.
    the 9550 seems to be the best bang for your buck 45nm 775 quad(and probably allways will be now).
    Taking 500fsb as a everyday use maximum limit(for most 45nm quads):
    480-500 fsb with 8 multiplier on cpu seems to need easier voltages
    480-500 fsb with 8.5 x on cpu starts to be more of a strain.
    cpu max speed max speed being king then fsb and memory speed/bandwidth.
    There is probably some point in the 480-500 fsb range with the best combination of cpu multiplier(8 or 8.5) lowest applied voltages, best memory timings,temps etc for you!.
    One thing you could do after you have saved your good bios settings is load and save the optimised settings,
    then "lock in" your cpu ref and mch ref at .760 ie load in the value dont leave it on auto.
    keep cpu termination at or just under your cpu core V and dont go over pll 1.59V and see what you can come up with.
    Depends if you want to tweak around a little or are happy enough where you are.
    Current Systems:

    Asrock p67 Extreme6.............. Gigabyte EP-45 UD3 ...................... Gigabyte 73 PVM S2
    Intel i5 2500k 4.8ghz................ Intel Q8400 3.8ghz......................... Intel D820 2.8ghz
    Zalman 10x cooler.................... Coolermaster V8............................ HP cooler
    8GB Gskill ripjaw ddr3.............. 4GB Gskill PI ddr2.......................... 4GB samsung ddr2
    60GB ssd/500GB HDD .............. WD 1TB hdd.................................... Seagate 160GB hdd
    GTX 460 1GB x2 SLI ................. Msi 9600GT 512MB(died) ........... Onboard gx
    Win7 64 ,750w psu(ocz)............ Win7 64 ,520w psu,seasonic...... Win XP pro ,400w psu

    HEC 6A34 case . ....................... Jeantec R2 case............................ Packard Bell case
