    Let me ask this, would it be best to pick a FSB and SPD divider that would would let me set the memory to run at 1066MHz intead of one that one slightly OC the ram? I still can't find what is holding me back from 3.6 With the setting you gave above I can run at 3.2 all day long but not 3.6.

    Shouldn't changing the CPU multiplier just affect the CPU side of things since the memory was already running stable at that FSB?

    Ok, I'm getting closer!! It will actually boot and KEEP 3.62 now, but memtest 2.10 bombs at start. Here's what I got for settings:

    Well when you increase FSB you have to also adjust your ram and voltages as you know, because it changes your ram speed you will not be stable with the same settings often as your speed is higher

    Try this >>>

    MCH Clock Skew (ps)...................: 150-250ps


    DRAM Performance Control
    Performance Enhance...................: [Standard]
    Extreme Memory Profile (X.M.P.).....: [Disabled]
    (G)MCH Frequency Latch...............: [Auto]
    System Memory Multiplier ..............: [2.66D]
    Memory Frequency (Mhz) ..............: 1069
    DRAM Timing Selectable ................: [Manual]

    Standard Timing Control
    CAS Latency Time........................5
    tRCD .........................................6
    tRP'..........................................6
    tRAS..........................................18

    ^^ See if that helps instead of CAS 6 ^^^

    Advanced Timing Control
    tRRD...........................................4 [4]
    tWTR..........................................4 [6]
    tWR............................................8 [11]
    tRFC...........................................72 [60] << try out 65-75 and see if that helps
    tRTP...........................................4 [5]
    Command Rate (CMD) ....................0 [2]

    Channel A
    Static tRead Value.........................:10

    Trd2rd(Different Rank)....................:8 [Auto]
    Twr2wr(Different Rank)...................:8 [Auto]
    Twr2rd(Different Rank)...................:8 [Auto]
    Trd2wr(Same/Diff Rank)..................:9 [Auto]

    Test #3 still kills it. I'm going to test each stick @3.6 and see what I get. Thanks so far BTW. Testing one stick goes faster than all at once also :)

    I got the system running at 5-5-5-18 @ 386 FSB. Now I have an odd problem, I get no errors what-so-ever in memtest but windows bluescreens on boot. I also tried a unbuntu liveCD and it crashes also. Any ideas?

    More vcore or Vtt is likely needed since your OS will not load, Vista does the same to me if voltages are not enough

    By Vtt do you mean ICH I/O? Or CPU Term?
