    I suggest the following bios changes, doing one at a time followed by your stress tests:
    1) Increase VTT to 1.22
    2) Increase CPU Vcore one step. This might help with decreasing the variance in the IBT GFlops scores.
    3) Decrease MCH Core to 0.72 and use VTT = 1.22
    Just to confirm please,.this is at 9x445? or

    And just to be cheeky ,. though I do sincerely apologise,.

    I hate it when someone follows suggestions exactly, it makes it so much easier for us to help you. Nice job!

    Thumbs up Re: Ga Ep45 UD3P rev 1.0 Bios assistance

    All of the above sounds good.....
    ..... IBT with 1024 MB is a wimpy test but it's better than no tests, IBT GFlops scores are somewhat lower when less memory is tested.
    This isn't a big deal, if you only want to run with 1024MB of tested memory, no problem.

    I've found Jake's thread very easy to follow, except for his occasional typos.
    FWIW, in an unrelated thread, one of my minor typos caused Chike to misunderstand my short, 2 sentence post.

    1) Increase VTT to 1.22
    2) Increase CPU Vcore one step. This might help with decreasing the variance in the IBT GFlops scores.
    3) Decrease MCH Core to 0.72 and use VTT = 1.22
    Results: Testing on 445x9.
    Tested all below as follows: (please note these tested were performed previously not posted)

    Memtest86 10 loops on test#5
    IBT 2048Mb memory tested (high setting) 5 passes
    Prime 95 "Blend Test" default test 3Hrs.

    1. VTT now 1.22
    MCH Reference ----------- 0.800V ------- : [0.752] (0.74 @ 1.2v VTT)

    Mtest86 passed
    IBT Passed
    Prime95 Passed

    2. VCore up 1 click

    VCore ------------------- 1.2500V ----:[1.28750] (up 1 click from my default;see Bios template above)
    MCH Reference ------- 0.800V ----- : [0.752] (0.74 @ 1.2v VTT)

    Mtest86 passed
    IBT passed
    Prime95 Passed

    3.
    MCH Reference
    ------- 0.800V ----- : [0.72]
    VCore ---------------- 1.2500V ------:[1.28750]
    MCH Reference ---- 0.800V ------ : [0.732] (0.72 @ 1.22v VTT)

    Mtest86 passed
    IBT passed
    Prime95 Passed

    From here I would like to know which to choose.

    I have screen shots of all 3 IBT tests ( they are all in 1 screenshot) and read as follows.

    Test1. top left
    Test2. top right
    Test3. bottom left.

    Sorry wrong Screenshot
    (I can't remove it from the post!!!)

    Don't know what happened there,...

    Here are all 3 IBT test results.
    Test1. top left
    Test2. top right
    Test3. bottom left.

    Ga Ep45 UD3P rev 1.0 Bios assistance-alll-1-3-jpg

    NB://I can upload them individually if not readable.

    It is my intention due to my Ram restrictions noted by chike. That I would like to reach 4.2GHz fully stable.

    Now,...next step please..

    Default Re: Ga Ep45 UD3P rev 1.0 Bios assistance

    There's some major confusion and misunderstanding here and it's my fault.
    Post # 117 was meant to list three different steps for getting a stable setup and each additional step might be needed to help with continued stability as you overclock higher
    1) Increase VTT to 1.22 only if any stress tests have errors. Then re-run the stress tests.

    If step #1 is stable but the GFlops scores have several differences greater than 0.04 - 0.08, then perform step #2.

    2) Increase CPU Vcore one step. This might help with decreasing the variance in the IBT GFlops scores. Then re-run the stress tests.

    (Step #3 confused me the most)

    3) Decrease MCH Core to 0.72 (this has been reworded for better clarity)

    If you need to perform step #3 AND VTT is currently higher than 1.20, you must

    3a) Set VTT = 1.20
    3b) Decrease MCH Core to 0.72 (in this case)
    3c) Set VTT back to the desired VTT setting performing step 3a.

    3d) In this case, change your bios template so that it would now read:
    MCH Reference ----- 0.760V ----- : [0.XYZ] (0.720V with VTT = 1.20) The same format is used if CPU Ref is altered.

    note: 0.XYZ is the value displayed in your bios AFTER you have completed step 3c
    In this case, 0.720 is the value you manually selected while VTT was temporarily set to 1.20.

    Chike can correct me if I wrong with the following:

    Changing CPU Ref follows the exact same procedure for steps 3a through 3d.

    If you already have MCH Ref and/or CPU Ref already set AND VTT is already higher than 1.20 AND you want to increase or decrease VTT, manually change the VTT value to the new value. Doing this will auto adjust the 0.XYZ value(s) in your bios screen and you should update the bios settings to reflect the newly displayed 0.XYZ values in the bios.

    Clear as mud? I promise not to write such a convoluted post like this again.

    That's ok.

    I'm Stable,.and understand what was written,. I have been reading through Jakes thread.-

    This gives me the best Gflop consistency
    2. VCore up 1 click

    VCore ------------------- 1.2500V ----:[1.28750] (up 1 click from my default;see Bios template above)
    MCH Reference ------- 0.800V ----- : [0.752] (0.74 @ 1.2v VTT)

    But VTT is at 1.22

    See Bios post from today.

    I have tested with VTT at 1.20
    Mtest86 passed 10loops #5
    IBT passed blend auto
    Prime95 Passed 3 hrs.

    So then we,...
