You're fine, Mullet--unless you want to try running a lower FSB. I kept my FSB @ 500 with a 1:2 ratio on my ram at 1000mHz and it was 100% stable, but looking back on it now I might've tried running a lower FSB for longevity's sake. Running a 500FSB constantly has to tax the board a little.

But Ben's right when it comes to the SLI boards. They have a hard time reaching 100% stability w/ a heavy overclock with anything other than a 1:1 FSB/RAM ratio.

ok cool.
