    Second results are better due to high FSB

    PCIE 100 always

    tRD for the second set? If so try 8, if no luck you will need to use 9

    What do you mean by "no luck"? Like should I expect boot halt?

    And what are these values anyway? 8 or 9?

    Useually Static tRead Value either boot and work or doesn't boot (boot loops), but might boot and stress tests will fail sometimes.
    Lower Static tRead Values (tRD) give better performance, so you might want to find the lowest you can use. But the value depends on FSB speed (higher FSB may require higher tRD) and timings (tighter timings may allow lower tRD)

    Hi Chike, I didn't see the "shana tove" before. only on second reading of this thread. Thank you very very much for that :)

    Shana tova! And thank you and everyone else for helping me out with this.

    I'm taking a day off from OCing. I'll get back to it later. I still have to change the tRead value.

    Here is a small update:
    I marked all the changes with BOLD and please note that the static tRead is 8 by default after this recent change with the FSB. This is of course while viewing from the BIOS. Do you want me to post an image from Memset?

    Don't believe BIOS default's confirm it is actually set to 8 in MemSet.
    If it is actually 8 you can try 7, maybe you'll get lucky and it'll work.
    Other than that you would have to run some stress tests to make sure this is stable. At least an 8 hours Prime95/Orthos blend test, and 6 hours of small and large FFT for greater assurance.
    How are the temperatures under load, CPU and system, with these settings?

    Do you have EasyTune installed? If yes does it shows MCH Core and FSB voltages in Tuner advanced voltage tab?

    EDIT: perheps it is better to start with small FFT for an hour or two before blend.

    I don't know how it is called in Memset so I posted a screenshot:

    Memset tRead Value

    And this is a screenshot of temps with everest stability test:

    Stability

    I just installed EAsyTune6 and in Tuner-Voltage advanced mode tab it shows the following:

    Vid Power On=1.262v Target=1.262v

    DIMM Power On=2.100v Target=2.100v

    It doesn't say FSB nor MCH.

    P.s. - what's FFT?

    Static tRead Value is Performance Level in MemSet, also refered as tRD.

    I don't know hoe to compare everest stress temps, what do you get for Prime95/Orthos small FFT torture?

    I was just wondering if you had those voltages in EasyTune.

    FFT used by Prime95 in search for mersenne prime numbers.

    Note that you can copy & paste the forum link from ImageShack in the post for the picture to show in it.

    Do you want me to set tRead to 7 in memset or through the BIOS?

    I know about the link to forum from imageshack but it shows the image as a broken link so I post only the link.

    I've downloaded RealTemp3.0 with Prime95. I'll change the tRead value after you'll tell me where to change it and then I'll run a small FFT test for 1 hour (?) and then a blend test for 6 hours (?)

    BIOS of course, if it won't reboot or go to boot loop than 8 will have to do.
    There's version 3.3 for RealTemp, I am not sure if I got it from the forum's program sticky or elsewhere.
    One hour or more for the smll FFT, max temps will reach after couple of minutes though. 6+ hours for blend test. The longer the better, but everyone make their own definition for stable system.

    EDIT: if prime fail, remember what FFT size it was and the error reported.
