    OK so... with this settings;

    1.55v VTT? way too high. Don't exceed 1.45v and better stay under 1.4v.
    Are both references set manually or auto? it is not clear.
    Please revie the settings, accuracy is very important.
    Do you get multi boots and/or the red warning message when you enter BIOS MIT?
    BTW what were core temps for the 36GFlops runs?

    Ok, when I get home I'll change the VTT... Both references are in Auto, but those are the values that each reference indicate. I don't get multi boots nor the red warning in the BIOS MIT, not even memory dumps, just IBT Failures, and, the CPU Temperatures when getting 36-37 GFlops are all circa 55-57 celsius from core 0 to 3, no more.

    So, while I was at class, I knew that the VTT Voltage wasn't right... It is 1.320v, the 1.550 was a transcription mistake, so, my apologies. So right now I'll try with a 1.360v for the CPU Termination (VTT)... Hope IBT won't give me problems..

    Ok, here are some new ss about this lasts settings...

    I was finally able to use the MaxxMEM Preview and, here's the SS



    One for IBT.



    Another one for ET6 Voltage tab.



    And the last one for the temperatures:



    So... Any suggestions to turn up the Gflops? if you need further information, please let me know....

    A question: Does the GPU has something to do with the CPU Gflops?

    Maybe it has something to do with the asimetry of memory modules, try with 2048 MB and see if they are better.
    Is 56c is highes core temp during IBT?
    Memory read and latency are not so briliant, maybe it also has something with the GFlops.

    no, the temperature won't pass the 56 Celsius barrier with those settings... Now, about the asimetry, trying the 2048mb means, that I should take off the 3 corsair modules and let only the kingston, or I need to buy RAM with more capacity and better specs?... In my lasts test I'm getting 37 Gflops at 58, and before that I was getting 38 Gflops on the same temp, the problem, is that I don't remember which were my settings, but I'm really near to get them again... Thank you so much for your help Chike, I owe you a couple of beers :D

    No don't take any memory out just select stress level high in IBT.
    Try to lower PLL to 1.55v, if you stable and there is no change in GFlops leave it there.
    58c for IBT is great, maybe it is time to try higher FSB.

    HEEEEELP 8(!

    So, today was a day of Tests for my CPU, because I was trying different values between the Vcore and the CPU Termination, to achive an stable one, and I got this one

    Code:
    Clock Chip Control
    Standard Clock Control
    CPU Host Clock Control --------------- : [Enabled]
    CPU Host Frequency (Mhz) --------------: [400]
    
    DRAM Performance Control
    System Memory Multiplier -------------- : [3.33D]
    
    Motherboard Voltage Control
    CPU
    Voltage Types------------ Normal -------- Current -----
    Load-Line Calibration ----------------- : [Enabled]
    CPU Vcore --------------- 1.2875v ---- : [1.4000v]
    CPU Termination --------- 1.200V ----- : [1.340v  ] 
    CPU PLL ----------------- 1.550V ----- : [1.550v  ]
    CPU Reference-------------0.805v ------: [0.805v  ] Auto
    
    
    MCH/ICH
    MCH Core ---------------- 1.100V ------- : [1.260v]
    MCH Reference------------ 0.760v ------- : [0.760v] Auto
    
    DRAM
    DRAM Voltage ------------ 1.500V ------- : [1.600v]
    Here are some screens from IBT:

    This one, is from the very first test, that indicated stable:



    then, I reseted my computer, then, I executed IBT again, but it failed. So I went to the BIOS and loaded the Optimal Settings, reseted, and then selected the settings displayed above. IBT was stable again, I reseted my computer again, to see if it keep stable after the reset, and, it failed again ....



    Help me please!! Is there something that I'm not doing right?... Besides... then the computer was stable for the first time, I ran some prime 95 tests, where everything was OK, until I reseted the computer... What could be? help me please!

    When you say reset how do you mean the reset button or windows restart?
