    Raise up your MCH core on or 2 notches...

    Do you have a link to your ram?

    IBT can be anything, run some small FFT, if it fail it is probably vcore, if not maybe MCH Core or memory multiplier.

    Here's the link to my ram.

    I will raise the vcore & mch and report back.


    Edit:

    I raised the vcore to 1.2625 & MCH to 1.18 (2 notches). It fails IBT, small FFT on the 2nd pass.

    G.Skill 4x2 GB DDR2 1000
    Now do you have 8 GB or is it 4x1GB for 4GB?

    So then your memory is OC to 1020 right?

    try these if you continue to have problems.

    CPU Reference and MCH Reference: 0.78946 or as close as you can get
    MCH/DRAM Reference: 1.050
    DRAM Termination: 1.050

    I made the changes you suggested. I still fail IBT on the 2nd pass. I also tried orthos & quickly failed.

    As a side note, I noticed my computer isn't keeping the proper time. I did change my mobo battery and it still falls behind.

    Reset COMOS.. Load optimized defaults then your saved bios. I read some G.Skill memory need less MCH Core voltage. But you might also try a 2.00B or 2.00D memory multiplier...

    Ah, good call Conners. I changed the ram to 2.00D & dropped the MCH back to 1.10 (stock). I ran IBT and got the following.

    - Passed IBT, 5 pass, small FFT.
    - Passed IBT, 10 pass, small FFT.
    - Passed IBT, 10 pass, 90% ram usage.

    So at this point, do I start increasing the fsb?
