    now you're getting somewhere... it seems the cpu is fine at 4g and it was the memory or the memory-controller (imc) acting up before.

    I'd stop there or maybe you will get lower temps if you run LinX with HT off.
    What is CINEBENCH score now?

    yeah, temps are getting near max tolarable, but you could try lowering the multi and get fsb higher (reaching for 20x200 with some luck...) just set it @ 20x with the voltage you are using now and raise fsb in 5mhz steps, if it doesn't work, lower in 2mhz steps back. (adding vcore would be an option if you had some more cooling)

    Lower multi and higher FSB would be worse because the uncore freq. is much higher and will need more VTT and will be more difficult to get stable.
    Some 400 million transistors that can create a lot of heat.

    bios memory multiplier choices are auto, 6, 8, 10, or 12, so best i can do is 180x8 =1440, 7-7-7-21,,,,,,,,,,,right ??, ........when i try 180x10=1800 i am exceeding the 1600mhz limit of my memory, i guess , and thats why it won't take that setting..................?

    For now yes but the memory might hold those timings a bit higher freq.
    It may do a bit higher than 1600 too but probably not 1800 at the spec timings.
    You cna try 9-9-9-27 with 1800 and see how that goes and if it's worth it memory performance wise.

    It could be a bit of tweaking, but it's worth trying, some do 200 easy, some never reach, guess board/cpu and luck is involved. Could always try it at 19x if the heat is too much at 20.

    I feel it would be nice if he did get to something like 3.8-4.0g & ddr1600 in the end.

    ya, 1800 definitely didn't work........lol.........ok, will try 9-9-9-27 and 1800,,,,,,,,,... am testing cinebench right now.......this is getting really fun, i am actually understanding about 50% of what you guys are telling me.........(i think )

    Memory is like a box of chocolates you never know what you get.
    If there is a high demand to 1600 memory and the company is short of 1600 chips it will sale 1800 binned chicps as 1600 if it has spares. Or the chips were never checked to be higher than 1600 but can still do it.

    Scaling timings down work almost always, but not up, cost nothing to try though. Just make sure you run memtest86+ before you attempt to run windows.
