    Multiplier = System Memory Multiplier (SMM), I'm not sure about this board, but there are duplicate multipliers (e.g. 2) for different starps (bus frequency) A is for 266MHz, B is for 333MHz, C for 200MHz, and D is for 400MHz, if my memory serves me right.
    This board may have it in different, like ~ or + or - to the right or left of the multiplier, I'm not sure which one is which but There should be a guide in GYGABYTE's forum.
    tCL = CAS latency.
    tRD = Static tRead Value, the lower it is better memory performance is. It's not a memory timing but rather a northbridge setting. In MemSet its is Performance Level.

    For now all you need to set is SMM to 2.00D and timings of 5-5-5-15, leave tRD on auto.
    If you manage to boot and run short tests with 3.4GHz you may try CPU Clock Ratio 9.0x
    Code:
    CPU Clock Ratio ___________________[8.5x]
    CPU Frequency _____________________[3.40GHz]
    CPU Host Clock Control_____________[Enabled] 
    CPU Host Frequency (MHz)__________ [402]  
    PCI Express Frequency (Mhz)_______ [101] 
    Performance Enhance________________[Standard] 
    System Memory Multiplier (SPD)_____[2.00D] 
    Memory Frequency(MHz)____[800]_____[800] 
    DRAM Timing Selectable___(SPD)_____[Manual] 
     
    ***** Standard Timing Control ***** 
    CAS Latency Time________________5__[5] 
    Dram RAS# to CAS# Delay_________5__[5] 
    Dram RAS# Precharge Delay_______5__[5] 
    Precharge Delay (tRAS)__________5__[15]

    Chicke,

    The 8.5 option went well (examined for 5 minutes with 3 occt tests) , but when I tried to run X9 with 3 power options - default, Auto power, and the last power setup that held up with the 13% OC - ddr2 +0.1 fsb +0.1 G-mch 0.1 cpu v 1.23125 (normal is 1.225)

    On the 1st and 3rd options I got BSOD, on the auto power OCCT failed after a few seconds.

    ProfiJim -

    I tried the versions you offered - with +0.15 and +0.2 on the options you mentioned, It crashed both times before reaching desktop - BSOD and telling me to repair windows etc.

    You probably need more vcore (cpu voltage) for 3.6GHz.
    My suggestion regard the memory setting only, keep the volatges as they were before withi higher vcore, though you may have it run at lower MCH and VTT(FSB) over voltage, you have 0.025 steps if I'm not mistaken you can try to lower them later.
    For BSODs the error code may help, so include them in your post.

    EasyTune Tuner->Advanced->Voltage screen should show the actual values that are set, if you have it installed. Don't use it for OC though, make changes in BIOS.

    ET6 won't work with X48 or earlier motherboards.

    EasyTune 5 or the ET5 Pro version is supported, but its displayed voltages are no where near as comprehensive or useful as in ET6.

    I somehow made it...into the 3.6 Ghz.
    Took a little bit of this and a little bit of that.
    I can't tell if these temps+setting are not damaging the system, so I'm loading some images, I hope it can help -

    Thank you

    Consider yourself lucky running so much memory at that frequency, most have enough trouble just having 4 dims running at stock.
    Settings are fine, temps a bit high but it's expected with tock cooler.
    Can you post MaxxMem screen capture?

    Wow, you guys are suggesting he OC as much as he has with the stock CPU cooler?

    Seems no CPU power saving options are enabled, idle core temps are 57C.

    The OCCT 12V voltage reading must be wrong, the PC would shut down if those readings were correct. The 3.3V and 5V rails are a bit low even at idle, if they can be trusted given the 12V reading.

    A good OC and memory speed, that's for sure. I've got an E8400 around here somewhere, could never OC it much with a Gigabyte P43 board.

    Hi parsec,

    The power saving options were turned off in order to keep oc stable, as I was told here and there.

    Chicke - here is the maxxmem data: imgur: the simple image sharer. And I guess some luck was involved, I'm happy my computer didn't burn after all these oc attempts...

    You can do better than that.
    IMO this is the minimum you should be aiming for:

    Those are with relaxed timings.
    You can probably do a bit better with the higer FSB and possibly with CAS 4
    I have always used power saving functions. Normally it is suggested to turn them off while OCing then turn them on for final testings.
    I suggest SMM 2.00D with timings manually set to 5-5-5-15, and tRD(Static tRead Value) 9. If stable try tRD 8 then 7.

    I'm not suggesting abyone to overclock, I just help them if they do, I think he is aware about the highe temperatures.
    As far as I can remember some voltages are not shown correctly for GB P4x boards.
