    Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD3
    G Skill F3-10666CL7-2GBRH DDR3-1333 DDR3
    Intel I5 760

    Im trying to get to 3.8Ghz and push the ram a little.
    im pretty new to overclocking but i have run the bclk at 200 and ram at 1600.
    but it was a little buggy...
    so currently i have everything as follows...

    blck 181
    x21
    cpu 3.8ghz - 1.2V
    ram 1448 - 1.58v - 9-9-9-24
    vvt - i forget where i set this. i think its at 1.25v
    it seems stable. after some prime95, intel burn, and memtest.


    under load i hit 70C cpu temp. but 28C at idle.
    and thats with the cpu fan on low, so i still have room to play...
    i cant seem to get the cpu to slow down at idle. but i turned the turbo thing off. and set the multiplier to x21

    how does it look?
    any thoughts?

    Seems to be stable so far even with linx

    bclk 181 vvt 1.25v
    cpu 3.8ghz (x21) 1.12v (normal) dvid +0.050 (says 1.68v under load and down to .8ish at idle)
    pch core (normal)
    cpu pll (normal)
    ram 1448 1.55v 8-8-8-22 1t

    turbo disabled
    c1e and c3/c6 enabled
    eist enabled

    Seems to be doing well so far with prime 95...
    cpu is x9 at 1.8ghz at idle and x21 at 3.8ghz under load.

    any thoughts?

    gonna change ram to 8-8-8-21 and see if it helps, maybe keep voltage at 1.6v
    maybe drop dvid a little. im happy with the temps so far, 66c under full load.
    maybe even bump blck up to 200 and do x19 for 3.8 see if i can keep the voltages.
    that will push ram up to 1600 but i might be able to bump the volts up a little and keep the timings.

    so i got my vvt at 1.25,
    ram at 1.56v - timings at 8-8-8-22 - 1600mhz
    200 fsb x19 = 3.8ghz
    vcore normal, dvid .075
    all eist and c states enabled as well as llc

    I replaced thermal compound and rotated my cooler 90*
    and i am staying stable with prime95 for 22hrs
    as well as intel burn test, memtest, and linx
    max temp has been between 63-77 on all 4 cores.
    my vcore during load is 1.74-1.8
    going to try and bump up to 4.0ghz, and keep voltage, or more likely lower dvid and see if i can remain stable.

    That is always a good test to perform. Did you notice an improvement in temperature or did it get worse with the rotated mounting orientation?

    It sounds like you have a stable OC on your hands, good job :thumbsup:

    well the thermal compout was all shitty. so i saw a big difference there, and rotating the cooler helped with the airflow quite a bit. i had the fans working against eachother. but i did build this pc like 5 years ago... gotta overclock it now to keep up. ha.
    my temps went from 70* max to 61*max...
    thanks guys. its working great now. got my vcore down to 1.8 on the heavy load. and at 3.8 stable. even clocked my ram at 1600 8-8-8-22 at 1.56v runs great. now if i could only replace my old 9800gtx+ and logitech g15 for the new versions... ha
