    Here are my current bios settings. I must say I'm starting to get pissed off at this computer. What is completely stable one moment, becomes unstable with a simple reboot or cold boot.

    What settings have you changed and to what values?
    MCH Core is at stock settings, it might need a bit more for this FSB.

    I corrected your template for you.... 1st make your bios look like these settings.

    Code:
    This is Just a template We use to ask people their settings, pay no attention to the numbers in it, replace with yours
    CPU = Model # 9550
    Motherboard = Model, Revision # <-- fill in
    BIOS Version = <--fill in
    Ram = Brand, Model#, Part#, And or Link <-- Fill in

    He was already with 1,24 vtt and both References on default.

    I went back to my 3.7 stable template. I ran IBT and it fails at every setting. I can run Prime Blend without any errors.

    I'm gonna try Conners suggestions and report back.

    Chike I am just trying to get us all on the same page here. There were a lot of discrepancies in his template...

    Yes I know, but with the changes you suggested for vtt and refences his settings will be just as they were in the pictures.
    So basicaly it's just Vcore & MCH Core that will changed.

    Well Conners latest suggestion seems to have worked.

    I passed IBT, 10 pass, std stress. The standard setting actually wound up at 80% ram usage. I set up a 4 gig ramdisk today so it reduced my available memory. Hopefully this o/c will hold after a cold boot. Where do we go from here?

    The only things that have changed since you last posted ET6 screen capture is MCH Core, and vcore which is now lower.
    The other IBT run had better results and 2c more core temps. You did use more memory but also higher vcore.
    Try to raise vcore back to 1.26875v and run IBT again and see if results get better.
    No need to reboot for the test, you can change it in ET6, click set at the bottom and run IBT standard again. If results are better, you will need to set in in BIOS too.
