    My goal is to reach 4.0 - 4.2 with HT enabled. I've read a lot of overclocking guides. In these guide I often read this:

    Not wanting to waste time, I drop the frequency of the memory to 1333MHz or lower. After I ensure the CPU at 4GHz is stable, I can then raise the memory with specific ratios to see if the memory can go higher.

    I could set the following settings in the bios: 21x 200 (4200) and memory multi 10x (2000MHz). I think this is really hard to tune. Wouldn't it be wise to first overclock the cpu to 4.0 - 4.2 HT and then see how fast I can get the ram to work without for example use very high qpi/vtt?

    If I'm wrong, how would you overclock my system?

    After 4 hours (6 passes) of Memtest86+ v4.00 I stopped the test, no errors. Memory speed 1910 8-8-8-24. I started LinX but it failed after 1 minute.

    Thanks, sorry for my questions! I just thought you knew how to overclock, then you acted like you were unsure.... So I was confused.

    Now you have overclocked, nice to see!

    First my screen displayed all kinds of colors for 3 seconds, then turned black and rebooted.

    Sorry for this beginners question, with these settings I run LinX for 2.5 hours:

    CPU Vcore 1.25000v.......................[1.21875v]
    Memory Frequency (Mhz)...................[1528]
    DRAM Timing Selectable (SPD) ............[AUTO]

    So when I change the memory settings to a higher Mhz I also have to increase the vcore? I thought I only had to raise the qpi/vtt.

    Ahh ok, no then you should be fine. Just the QPI/Vtt would need to be more then, and possibly IOH as well

    With these vcores I can run LinX between 1 - 5 passes before I get a black screen.

    1.21875v
    1.25000v
    1.27500v
    1.28750v
    1.29375v

    I used qpi/vtt 1.355v and these bios settings:

    Should I return to vcore 1.21875 and increase my qpi/vtt and other volts?




    Edit:

    I raised the qpi/vtt to 1.45500v, LinX stopped at run 5 but my system didn't reboot:

    Looks like you are getting there now.

    Try a bit more QPI/Vtt and more IOH

    QPI/VTT: 1.47500
    IOH Core: 1.30000

    LinX stopped at run 2. Should I raise volts again?
