The mobo did set VCore to 1.25V, FSBT to 1.3V & NB to 1.6V.

I have raised my FSB to 450MHz, and i have set the FSBT to 1.38V (i try to keep it as low as possible).

The system has been running rock solid during my gaming session last weekend. It also passed several OC tests like OOCT, Prime, ... and my custom benchmarks.

The Rampage is an awesome mobo, and these OCZ Reaper modules are incredible overclockers !

There is one funny fact too: CAS4 @ 900MHz NO POST, but CAS3 @ 900MHz POST OK. I refuse to try to understand this
