    Hit F10 and save/exit ...no post , mb is lit up all fans spinning , but nothing, tried power of at psu and holding power on button in for 30 sec ..but didnt work ,had to reset cmos to get back in to bios.

    If this is your memory, try these settings:

    Code:
    Channel A + B + C
    
    Channel A Timing Settings:
    ##Channel A Standard Timing Control##
    CAS Latency Time ......................9
    tRCD .......................................9
    tRP .........................................9
    tRAS .......................................20
    
    Command Rate (CMD) ................1
    
    Have all of the rest of the memory settings set to AUTO.
    
    
    Advanced Voltage Control:
    
    CPU
    Load Line Calibration ................. [Enabled]
    CPU Vcore ............................... [AUTO]
    QPI/VTT Voltage 1.150v ............ [1.20]
    CPU PLL 1.800v ....................... [AUTO]
    
    MCH/ICH
    PCIE 1.500v ...........................[AUTO]
    QPI PLL 1.100v .......................[AUTO]
    IOH Core 1.100v .....................[AUTO]
    ICH I/O 1.500v .......................[AUTO]
    ICH Core 1.1v ........................[AUTO]
    
    DRAM
    DRAM Voltage 1.500v .............. [1.65]
    DRAM Termination 0.750v [AUTO]
    Ch-A Data VRef. 0.750v [AUTO]
    Ch-B Data VRef. 0.750v [AUTO]
    Ch-C Data VRef. 0.750v [AUTO]
    Ch-A Address VRef. 0.750v [AUTO]
    Ch-B Address VRef. 0.750v [AUTO]
    Ch-C Address VRef. 0.750v [AUTO]
    When setting your memory multiplier, make sure that your Uncore Frequency multiplier is twice (2x) or (2x + 1) your memory multiplier.

    Example:

    Uncore Frequency - 16x (or 17x)
    System Memory Multiplier (SPD) - 8x

    Memtest 3.x has caused problems with many different motherboards.
    Memtest86+ is the version that is recommended.

    shall i keep cpu core v at AUTO untill it wont boot into win anymore then raise it a touch ?

    another thing ..i dont seem to have the expert XPM mem setting in my bios should i ?
    also i dont have 1.65v for dramm only 1.64 or 1.66 and that gives warning
    so set to 1.64 .... am i missing somthing ? is there a hidden Ctrl + F1 to press or somthing.?

    Hmm .. dont think my cooling is up to the task with stock HS/Fan i'm at 30c above room temp at 0% load @ 3360mhz / 1.367v

    temps are 52/48/48/50 according to Real Temp

    Time to buy a cooler is the Noctua NH U12P ok ?

    Im using the noctua u12p on my 920 and can raise my bclk to 160 without the temps getting to bad, you want to monitor your vtt and try to keep it at the lowest you can to keep the temps down.

    If you are starting to overclock, then slowly increase your voltage. If your CPU is D0, try setting it at the default vCore (should say the value in white). If you have C0 stepping, then maybe increase the voltage a smidgen (you shouldn't need more than 1.3V.. hopefully).

    Yeah, try it with 1.66V. It will undervolt to around ~1.645V or something like that. And don't worry about the warning, as long as you stay within 0.5V of your QPI/VTT and vdimm, you'll be fine.

    Just be a little careful as they recommend that you increase your voltage to 1.4V for a 4GHz overclock. Every CPU is different, yours will most likely need less if you are running 21x160 (with Turbo enabled).

    Try lowering your vCore if possible. And when you do, test it with LinX (20 passes at least with maximum memory used).

    Lowered the Vcore to 2.58 ,QPI/VTT@ 1.200, 170 BCLK @ x21 gives me 3.57mhz

    Running LinX i can watch my chip fry itself *grin* real temp shows 87 on some cores .... so ordered an Noctua NH-U12P SE1366

    Clocking on hold untill it arrives ... my case has a 25cm side fan i bet the Noctua will not fit with that ...might have to remove the side fan.
