    I have my 3.4GHz config saved to USB somewhere. I'll load it and write down the values then post them up here later. Not saying that the settings will work for you but they may help.

    I am able to get 3.36 stable for 14 hours. 3.4 caused one core to fail after 8 hours on a blended test.

    3.36 is good thats over 1000mhz faster than stock.
    Sure 3.4 or 3.5 would be better ,but with your 8G ram you might not get that and you will hardly notice the performance increase except in benchmarking.
    Are the voltages reasonable?
    Were you able to put actual values in for say cpu term v and pll and the ref voltages?
    If not the pll and cpu term will be running higher than you may need.

    Zalman 10x cooler.................... Coolermaster V8............................ HP cooler
    8GB Gskill ripjaw ddr3.............. 4GB Gskill PI ddr2.......................... 4GB samsung ddr2

    Okay all I thought I posted my settings here before, but apparently I never hit submit and just came back to check.

    I flashed the BIOS to the beta version and low and behold I lost all my settings and had to start over.

    So far I have 3.36GHz stable with OCCT, working on 3.4GHz now.

    @Kick - you were right my RAM is the limiting factor with the 6-7-7-20 timings.

    The only thing I have adjusted so far are:
    CPU - 1.3
    MCH - 1.38.
    Everything else is auto.

    Also I had trouble with the 2.00D so I went back to 2.00B and that seems to run smoother.

    Will update again shortly.

    Okay I was able to get 3.4GHz stable with 8GB of OCZ Fata1ty 1066 Ram.

    FSB - 486
    CPU - 1.3
    MCH - 1.4

    I have attached the screen shot of OCCT showing stability.

    The highest core temp I reached was 68C on Core 0. The VCore was extremely stable at 1.28 (BIOS is 1.3)

    NOTE: The CPU core temps were at idle. Also I have ESIT enabled, so while at idle it dropped to a multi of 6X. Odd thing is my temps ran cooler at 3.4 than they did at 3.36....any ideas?

    Okay I got 3.43 stable now with OCCT for an hour.

    My Core temps were 4 degrees lower as well - odd.

    Anyway all my voltages are the same as pictured above but I changed
    CPU Vcore to 1.32500

    Let me know if you have any advice on tweaking the voltages.

    Thanks.
