    Who needs to adjust uncore? It's locked at x18 and scale with BCLK.

    Have you tried 1333 with 7-7-7-21 timings and 1.65v yet?

    BTW where is the VTT limit of 1.21v from? Intel's datasheet says 1.155v max for notmal opertation and absolute max 1.4v.

    just changed to 7-7-7-21 @ 1333 , 1.65v, qpi/vtt 1.21v........5 mins, no problems yet..........haha...........hmmm, not sure where i got the 1.21............probably in these forums............

    that got me to thinking, 8-8-8-24 @ 1600, 1.65v, qpi/vtt 1.21 was certainly headed in the right direction, should i have tried higher qpi/vtt voltage ?

    The 2 volumes of i5-700 and i7-800 datasheet have different dates, vol. 1 is from July 2010 and vol 2 is from Spetember 2009 so maybe Intel changed some specs.
    The guide linked from Gulftown, Bloomfield, Lynnfield, Clarkdale, SB Overclocking Guides (1155/1156/1366) also suggest to keep VTT under 1.4v for every day use.

    I guess you could try more VTT and see how that works.
    But run memory benchmark and compare the low timing at 1333 against 1600 and see if it worth it.
    If the memory has XMP I'd use that and just set the VTT manually.

    7-7-7-21, 1333, qpi/vtt=1.21, dramv=1.65.......ran prime for 3.5 hours, ran FINE........ran maxmem to compare later

    8-8-8-24, 1600, 1.21, 1.65 .......had issues from the start.........so, upped qpi to 1.23, good so far, ran maxmen.....very similar results to the 7-7-7-21, 1333 settings

    gonna see how stable 8-8-8-24, 1600 settings are tonite, run prime, etc.......just for comparison

    oh, thats good to know.... i hadn't read anything here about guys goin past 1.21.......i am kinda clueless on this stuff, but, got fed up with not knowing why i got random blue screen errors, so, am forcing myself to learn, thanks for all the help ! so, ur overclocking 1600 memory to 1800 ?

    its been ok at 1.23 for a few hours now, but, haven't really stressed it with prime95 or pi or anything.
