    thanks and, oh yes, i mispoke, it was cpu-z that gave me the current voltage ;)

    so, maybe 4 or 4.2 tomorrow ;)

    if you do go 4ghz+ you might need to loosen timings to 8-8-8-24,dont think you will get 7-7-7-20 stable at that clock

    When pushing the CPU, try to take the MEM out of the equation, that way you will be more sure it is the CPU acting up if it doesn't work. Once you find your CPU limit, you can up/tighten MEM again.

    If you are fanatic about getting high MEM, you could do the same trick there, only this time taking the CPU out of the equation, keep it at a lowish point where you are certain it will work, while pushing the MEM.

    In the end you can (try to) combine both highs you found and you're done

    sounds like a great tip, you and the others here have been great help.....thanks so much

    i came here originally just trying to get my system running like it should......ie windows with no bsod's,( 0124 ) which,are gone, remedied by raising qpi/vtt and also to get my 1600 memory and sata 3 ssd drive running at the speed they are supposed to run at. In the process I've learned so much about cpu, memory, timings, voltages, bios settings etc..but a ways to go for sure. Getting the computer overclocked is a fun bonus, acutally, I don't game at all, but, its quite a rush, i've discovered.

    I just make you feel better you get more of what you paid for.

    Like Darkje say, you can set memory to run at 1200 (is there a 6 multiplier?) with timings 7-7-7-21, that should be easy for the memory.
    Also try to enable turbo boost and see if you can get the x22 multi to work, with combinations of power states. There must be a way it should work.

    ok, so , 1200 to slow memory down and get the CPU up with turbo boost/ 22 multiplier ?.......what does " combinations of power states " mean?

    lemmie swap over to my laptop, so , i can update my bios settings template for you and post it here, brb with that.

    Combnations I mean of power state and turbo
    turbo on/of
    C1E on/off
    C3/C6/C7 on/off
    eist on/off

    Total 16 combinations. Begin with turbo C3/C6/C7 and C1E.
    With a x22 you can stay with 175MHz bclk for 3.85GHz, and only need 181MHz for 4GHz, easier for the IMC/QPI

    ok, back,

    a. yes, i do can do memory multiplier 6

    b. here are my bios settings from my 3.8ghz oc of last nite...........(seems stable, ran prime for a bit, then three passes of IBT and LinX, 8 threads at 4096mb in each, successfully......top temp reached in any tests was 70C, cpu-z reported top voltage needed was 1.232 (i believe).

    So 180bclk not a problem and memory holds timing higher than expected, need to find it's OC limit also.
