    Hello, Howard8.

    Can you confirm that both your CPU Clock Drive and PCIE Clock Drive are NOT 700mV? This means you forgot to load optimized after flashing, I believe. This could be a problem.

    Thankyou so much for the settings as posted by wazza300. So far it runs prime95 for over an hour without a BSOD and temps in the low 60C range. I am running 12GB of RAM so I wonder whether I do need to up the qpi/vtt to 1.4V? The 1.4V range is coloured differently in the settings --- anything I should be cautious about?

    Also I have had a painful reboot problem from day one. On restart the PC boots nearly fine with the bios settings but on cold boot I get OC/Voltage warnings and it defaults back to 2.8ghz/1066mhz ram etc. Everytime I must enter the bios and reload the profile. Any idea why this is so?

    Great thread and much appreciated.

    Update: too confident about the prime95 test. BSOD crash 0x0000012 about an hour into it - I will up the qpi/vtt :)

    Could need more qpi/vtt voltage,what are you using at the mo? Try with 1.35v and keep increasing 1.36/1.38/1.4 ect until its stable,you will need more with 12gb,1.4v is safe but you might not need that much,you will need to test

    Just trying qpi/vtt @ 1.4V. Now running Prime95 to see if bombs. Your help is much appreciated. Do you have the cold boot problem (resets to 1066mhz/2.8ghz rubbish)? Mine has done this since new and appears random but TOO regular.

    Could be bios or ram itself that's causing cold boots,if its stable at 1.4v test with 1.38v,are you setting dram voltage according to ram?and are you running 7 7 7 24 timings? You could try 8 8 8 24 timings and see if it helps with cold boots

    It set the DRAM as per module specs 1.5V | 7-7-7-24. But for some reason it now refuses to boot win 7 and hangs but boots on vanilla 2.66ghz bios settings. I just built a new profile as per your 3.8 sheet but at blk 160 / 3.36ghz etc with LLC enabled and its hammering the Prime95 test for 30 minutes without a crash. Should LLC be enabled (I note you disable it)? Whats it do?

    The boot problem has been from day one. I changed out the ram once and no change. Sometimes it boots with correct Bclk but skips a stick of memory (i.e. shows 10Gb instead of 12GB on post) etc

    Um: What temps can the CPU cores handle --- safe maxed zone?
