    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.

    re-running cinebench now, cuz it said i was at 3.78ghz, horrors, ! lol........(cpuz still says 3.96 and bios settings haven't changed) must be just a quirk in cinebench

    Yes cinebench is not too smart about CPU freq. If I don't use my max multi it show a much higher OC than it realy is.

    HT clearly comtribute to about 25% better performance.

    He's from India, and a horrible golfer.......I am sure he'd consider any new hobby after some of his rounds of golf ;)

    ok, so, one pass successful in memtest.......now .boot to windows and run some tests ?

    9-9-9-27-1800 heats up too much with linx (90C during first pass, so, i stopped it) and prime95........and almost identical speed scores as with 7-7-7-21-1440 running MaxxMem, and cinebench
