    It's 3.51GHz with 2.40B BTW (which is ~31.7%). Will try tRD 8, but...^ ;)
    You said 5MHz more for 450, simple math 450 - 5 = 445, 445 x 8 = 3.56.
    You are hiding things from me so I had assume.

    Maybe you can, question is do you want to risk it?
    My P45-UD3LR setup just died, I have no idea why I need to take it apart...

    Very little I know about GPUs, I am the proud owner of Radeon HD 4770.
    It is difficult to say, new games are made for new CPUs with new instruction sets that may be way faster when optimized, also RAM bandwidth is over double.
    See the differences between old LinX, the AVX version, and latest with FMA3 ( I'm not gonna try this again).

It is an original case fan BTW, not my work.
    Maybe if you connect it through the resistor you had for CPU, it will slow it down but if your temps still good then no problem right?

    Someone else will have to answer that.

    Hmmmm, you're on to something, if you manage this you might get a nobel prize for exposing one of the biggest frouds on the planet.

Gaming ultrabooks are waiting for you. Stop overcomplicating things. Now I'm also considering 2in1's but they're too weak to be gaming systems. MS needs to get its sh*t together and put some damn port to Surface Pro 4/5 to turn it into a Crysis (or was it Witcher 3 these days?) slayer. So this is my plan for my next rig --which noone knows when will that happen-- I don't plan on getting another desktop PC so I'll try to get a 760 to make do for a while. ITX's (what was I thinking when I got that HAF 932 monster?) can actually be a nice intermediate but I don't upgrade frequently. And I don't see its use when i'll still be have to carry heavy weight with cables.
    One thing I'm thankful for is Nvidia/Intel's obsession with low power. Not that they're doing it for us but they're slowly making a very portable "one PC for all needs" mobile PC a reality. While it is true this is causing stagnation for processing power but who cares, consoles are already bottlenecking us anyway.

    Nope. Can't think of any other troubles right now. Sorry. :D

    Nope.

    1.41875vcore. 5 higher than 1.3875. 5 more vcore for 11 more fsb and still nothing.
    450-11 = 439. 439*8 = 3.51. :)

    About risk... depends on your definition of risk. I want to use this computer daily for a few more years. I still have a lot I don't know about vdroop but I guess you don't think we can manage without going 1.42+. Alright then.


    Thank you and @ProfJim so much for helping me through this thread for all of the 24 pages. I couldn't do it without you!

    Still 31.8% OC one click up FSB it'll be 32% :)
    I think we've exhausted about every other possible option aside RAM refs but I don't believe it's the RAM so no need to bother.
    Lets hope it will last few more years, and skip few more tick tock cycles.

    And you are very welcome, we are here to help as much as we can.

    Hi.

    After almost 1 year of use without problems (I haven't really used my PC last 4 months), I bought a GTX 970, now my RAMs are giving me trouble again. When I plugged in the 970, I couldn't boot without resetting Bios to change the settings. With two OCZs, I lowered FSB to 438 and it worked. With all DIMMs it didn't. I set RAMs to 5-5-5-16 and 2.12v and still no use. Also didn't work with 3 DIMMs, or any combination or any combination that includes Kingstons. I also first tried lowering PCIE frequency to 100 and still no use. I also made sure I plugged them fully correctly. Once one Kingston didn't give me beeps, but then IMO it, who knows why, resetted and gave me the beep then (Beeps are about 20 per each boot attempt, if you must know)

    How is this really about settings? What could affect the way the PC works besides PCIE frequency is beyond me.

    Help me Master Chike, you're my only hope. :p

    I really can't help, in fact I am amazed this board boots at all with GTX 970.
    The Kingston alone won't boot?
    What is MCH Voltage?
    For troubleshooting I have bought a PCI diagnostic card, they are cheap on eBay but shipping takes time.

    Just managed to boot with 3 DIMMs all auto (RAM mode Turbo, by default). Without overclock of course. I think this shows a big promise it's possible to boot with 4 DIMMs everything at last ideal settings before my new GPU? If you remember, I couldn't boot with 3 DIMMs before with my old GPU either at first.

    Why are you surprised it boots anyway? TDP is lower than my old 560Ti... and PCIE bandwidth of the motherboard is enough. Just because it's such an advanced card?

    EDIT: And now managed to boot with 3 DIMMs CPU @ 3.2GHz, RAMs @ 960MHz. Nothing else, no voltages changed from default settings.
