    Leave voltages as now for now, later you may be able to lower VTT and MCH Core 1-2 notches, they are within reason nothing to be worried about.

    Higher FSB result with better memory performance (usually), but may limit CPU OC if there's it FSB wall. The best way to go is to find which gives the best results, run some benchmarks that represent your usage and see what is best for you.
    Running at 3.4 GHz with 9 multiplier right now. Been stable so far with p95 for an hour. Gonna let it run overnight. Tell you how it goes. Thanks for everything so far!

    Here are my new stable settings. Not much from when I started but still something. Is there any other way I can push it up a little more? I was hoping to get at least 3.5. It was a tab faster with the 8x multiplier. Is that normal?

    You're doing well so far.

    I have seen these chips running upwards of 3.6GHz. This was at a time when the 975 chipset was commonly used which didn't like going too far above 400MHz FSB. I'm sure you could get at least 3.6GHz with your temps so low. You may need more VCore to get there though. Also, bear in mind that at a certain point it's likely you'll encounter a situation where you'll need a large increase in Vcore for a proportionally small increase in clock speed. EG 3.5GHz to 3.6GHz may take 0.05V increase, but to get to 3.75GHz, you may need +0.14V. This is just an example, not a guess as to what you'll actually need. This situation also means that you are getting to the limits of the chip, at least using your current cooling method.

    Use your own discression as to what tweaks you do from what I've suggested. Base this on how the CPU behaves as you increase speed. Most important settings are Vcore, CPU Termaination and MCH Ref, followed by MCH Core. It's vital at higher clocks to tune all voltages correctly but thoe 4 are the ones that will likely need increasing as you raise the FSB and therefore the CPU frequency.

    Always try and keep RAM at stock or close (under's better than over) until you have the CPU OC speed you want and are stable.

    This would be a good place to start for 3.6GHz. If you like go to 3.55GHz first to get a feel of how the chip is behaving. that limit on the CPU may be far away or quite close, you can never tell until it happens. I've written some notes in bold italics where important info needs to be considered. Keep an eye on core temps as you go:

    Thanks for commenting :D I have a couple questions that I would like answered.

    First and foremost, what is the difference between the 2.00B and 2.00D, other than one being used with 400+ fsb and the other 333. For the driving strength, do I set both channels to manual 800/1066? And what do the driver strength do? I touched both my NB heatsink and ram and they are both really cool. It's like I don't even feel heat from them. One last question, I heard from someone that BSOD's are ram errors. Is that correct? I'll tinker with the voltages for now and let you know what happens! Thanks again

    B and D are both straps that will set NB latencies differently. D is linked to 400+FSB and B to 33-399 FSB. Saying this, it's sonetimes the case that you need to use B for say 450 FSB, or you may only be able to get anything past 400 FSB using B. It's all very random.

    Leave Driving Strength on Auto as long as possible. it alters the strength of communication between NB and RAM. Not much info is around about it on the net. You need to set both channels to the same figure if setting it manually.

    For abetter idea of NB temps you really need to touch the heatsinks after a hour or two of Prime95 on the Large FFT (max heat) setting. NB tempscan rise sharply when being used intensely.

    You are most welcome. Please let us know how you get on.

    Leave Driving Strength on Auto as long as possible. it alters the strength of communication between NB and RAM. Not much info is around about it on the net. You need to set both channels to the same figure if setting it manually.

    For abetter idea of NB temps you really need to touch the heatsinks after a hour or two of Prime95 on the Large FFT (max heat) setting. NB tempscan rise sharply when being used intensely.

    Haha, I was editing my post when I realized I forgot something but I think I edited it too late. I'll ask it here. I heard from someone that BSOD"s are RAM errors. Is that correc?

    Not all BSOD's are RAM errors. Some are. Things like "Page fault in non paged area" are definitely RAM related for instance. You have to look up the BSOD error number for common causes. Can be because of any component being unstable and also can be caused by software etc.

    Increasing either FSB or memry frequency results in better memory performance, with 8 Ratio they were both 50MHz higher, and with same memory timings memory performed significantly better.
    If this would be noticeable in use I don't know.

    So I'm stuck now. My computer keeps cycling itself, shutdown, turn on. It never gets past the POST Bios screen. I can't get into bios because once it checks everything, it just restarts itself. It started happening right after I p95 and errored. I went to go restart my computer and then all of a sudden it doesn't start up. Should I clear CMOS? Or is there another solution?

    Usually turning off the PSU for 30 seconds will let you back into BIOS, even though it might loop 2-3 times. If this don't help clear CMOS.
