    Yeah I know LSD... I wanted to get the later BIOS before geting to the RAM and more serious OC of the Proc. I would like any advice on the subject. I know Corsair XMS 3 is stable at much higher speeds. What would be the best and most stable means to bump up the timings? I read alot of INFO. I mean alot. I just want maybe a quick easy wlakthrough for ram timings. Then I will adjuts Proc. spds were needed for the ram speed since theay are all connected. Any advice or links would be great man. I see how many things you know and the many you have helped and would really appreciate the help of one so well educated and experienced in the area.
    Thanx

    Ahh ok, just thought I would point that out in case you didn't notice or was unsure how to set it up.

    Well I can help you with settings if you want, but you would have to tell me what speeds you want to run your CPU at first so we could look at a few options.

    Timings are fairly easy for these boards, set the main ones and the rest can be left in auto. If you get started, just disable XMP, set your uncore multi to 2 x ram multi (Or 1-2 above that) and then set your main memory timings and you will be good to go.

    Then figure out what CPU multi and Bclk you need to reach the memory speed you want, such as 200x21 for 4.2Ghz with ram at 1600, or 200x19 for 3.8Ghz with ram at 1600, or 210x19 for 4Ghz with ram at 1600

    And of course you can use different amounts and run your memory faster or slow than stock if you want too.

    Arrow Re: Q-flash Intervals when stepping up several BIOSes

    First off I have a serious level of air cooling including (4) 120mm intake outake Case fans as well a 140 mm Extract out from the top. I have the Gelid Silent spirit on my i7 940 It has a nicely polished bur free solid copper base that has four pipes that insert into a aluminum alternating fin system that has small dimples to help hold more heat on surface area as it blows off. It also has an immediate heat spreader above the chip that stands above connecting the quad heat dissapating pipes. You cannot tell fro it's angle in the pic the units radiator is at a40 deg. or so angle enabling it to cool other components. Since my NB is cool from a center intake 120mm I use the gelid's air push to cool my RAM Modules. It keeps my CPU @3.2 cores at 39c idle and no more than 55-60c under load according to the newest RealTemp.

    I wanted to give you a run down of my all air system it has a flow almost as if the side of the case were off and the room is air-conditioned to 28c to 32c. (about 60F or so) That being said I would like to reach about a 4.0 Ghz. Overclock on the CPU. I figure that is within a stable limit while saving life on the CPU.

    I want my Ram to be at least 1600Mhz. instead of 1066mhz.

    I haven't delved into much Overclocking because I thoroughly research everything before I modify. Also My machine runs like a bat out of hell anyway, but with newer titles I want to meet them the same before I have to upgrade my GPU so soon (bought a little over a year ago). So any pointers will be great perhaps some sort of template. All the sources have me confused. Eventually I will plug away for myself, but I like to learn about other's methods.

    Oh LSDMEASAP,
    I forgot to thank you for your advice. I know you are extremely busy so I appreciate it. I will give you some of my ideas about settings and if you would look them over and just give me an opinion on it to make sure I am not going to somehow destroy both BIOSes and my Proc in the process.LOL

    I am busy too so I will get back to you in abit with them and you can drop a reply at your earliest convinience. Thanks Pal. appreciate your help.

    No problem, and thanks for your kind words of support!

    I am always here to help, so it's fine with me to help anytime. Sorry I have been busy lately though!

    You wont destroy your CPU or BIOS at all trying settings, and you can even save up to 8 different BIOS profiles too if you want, so that way you can keep a stock one to go back to until you get your overclocked one stable.

    F11 on the MAIN page of the BIOS is save, and F12 is load.

    I'll advise you on settings once you post some up, thanks :)
