    enter bios, enable blck control - change the blck from its stock 133 to 165 . This will give you 3.465ghz .

    Change memory multi from auto to 10x = 1650mhz Ram speed.

    Change uncore freq to 20x and qpi link to 36x

    up your vdimm to 1.64v, if this voltage dont boot bump it to 1.66v . Manually set your ram timings to what u have above.

    Change vcore from auto to 1.3v . U probly have a D0 chip, so that should be plenty. Use it to start .

    Change qpi from auto or 1.15 which is "normal" to 1.3v . Since you will be using 1.64-1.66vdimm, do not forgot to up the qpi voltage. Bad things can happen if u do forget. You cannot have more than .5v between your vdimm and qpi voltage.

    Those are pretty much the basics, and should most definitely be solid.

    You may need an aftermarket cooler, i dunno if u have one or not as you didnt list it. Be sure you have realtemp open and stress it with prime95. Keep your eyes on the temps.

    whoa 65c idle? Thats WAY too high... what are ur optimized defaults temps? Put everything to stock by loading optimized defaults and let us know ur temps. You can also change ur vcore from auto to 1.2 and see how many degrees u drop. Im a little worried you may have a badly seated heatsink.

    I have the ol' 1.0 revision. My brother is using the 1.6, his 1.0 recently died. RIP.

    Keep urs clocked at stock til u get that cooler . How hot u get under load at stock? I would be careful if i was u. What stepping chip u have, im guessing the D0 ?

    Also, what is ur choice of thermal paste/grease?
