    Now working stable 3.4GHz

    8*425

    Any chance to reach the 3.6 ?
    9x400 or 8x350 ?
    Or do i need better motherboard?

    I need to make calculations 24x7 per some weeks, do it need to stop with 3.4 to prevent my system from damage?

    Tanx a lot for helping

    3.6 may be possible for you, not all will do it though. I would use 450x8 myself, but you can also test 9x400

    3.6Ghz may be pushing your CPU a little, but if temps are good and your voltages do not have to go way high your hardware will be fine

    Are you folding, or did you mean some other calculations?

    Tried 9x400 - same BSOD error, will try the 8x450

    Do i need to ajust some memory timings/voltage?

    Now at 3.4 Temp is 61-63 with 100% load,

    About folding - i making similar calculations, like RSALS

    What is the BSOD Code again, or did you say?

    Please post full settings next time as well, maybe then I can spot something holding you back

    The BSOD happens after booting os, at about 1-2 minutes aster logging on.
    Will post all params soon, testing now.

    About MEM timings, in official datasheet they are:
    5-5-5-12
    but as i see in MEMSET or SPD:
    5-5-5-15 for 400 profile
    and
    6-5-5-15 for same 400 profile too

    maybe it's possible to adjust a little?
    for example
    4-4-4-12 ?

    Yes, it may be possible to adjust things, but you need to find a stable point first, not just boot stable I mean testing with programs such as Memtest86+ or Orthos stable.. Once you get your CPU to a stable speed you want to keep then you can work on tightening up the memory

    444-12 may not be an option with that much ram, you may be able to try 544-12 or 554-12 ect though, of course you can always try 444-12 but from the specs it may not work unless you pump 2.0-2.1V into them. Then maybe, not sure as I have not used any 4x4GB Sticks myself

    Current settings for 3.600
    Running ok, os works, no bsods.
    CPU Temp in idle 38-41

    But when i starts 4 thread with 100% it hangs. BSOD 0x9C MACHINE CHECK ERROR

    8x433 works stable, 65C per core with full load.
    Prime95 1 of 4 cores failed, but second time all ok.
    8x450 still hang
    9x400 still hang

    I would go by the fail not the one that have not.
    How long do you run prime, is it always the same worker that fail, which test do you run and what FFT size fail?
